Good morning from beautiful Bangkok, Thailand! I’m just finishing up my first week of slow travel here, and am already getting a little antsy…

Thankfully, I can fill the travel void by sharing some tasty hacks with you:

🌎 FareDrop flash sale (24 hours left!)

🍪 Tasty Travel Tidbits

🏨 Best Western strikes again

You know when people joke around and say things like “LOL, I’ll do (x) when pigs fly” as a way to indicate that it’ll never happen?

I do something similar… but it’s more like, “LOL, I’ll do (x) when Best Western offers tangible value from their rewards program.”

Yeah, it’s a little wordy. I’m working on it.

But also, I look like a FOOL now because Best Western has just launched a promotion that is on par with the big dogs.

Here are the deets:

  • Earn a free night award after staying two nights at Best Western hotels

  • You must register for the offer first

  • Valid for stays through May 5th, 2024

  • Only valid at hotels in the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean

This is a wonderful deal in my book. You may remember that last year, Marriott had a similar promotion - and the world freaked out about it because it was so good.

It’s essentially a “buy two, get one free” situation.

But it’s actually way better than just that, since the free night can be redeemed at any Best Western property in North America.

For example, you could stay two nights at this motel in Topeka, Kansas (which is probably as depressing as it sounds) for just over $60 a night.

After doing so, you’ll end up with a free night award.

The beautiful part about this free night award is that even though you earned it from a $62 hotel, you can redeem it anywhere you want.

For example, you could use it to book a night at this hotel in Manhattan that would otherwise cost you over $300.

Or, if you wanted a warm beach getaway for Spring Break, you could book this luxurious Best Western property in Miami that is currently selling for over $400 per night.

As you can see, there is no shortage of ways to earn this free night award on the cheap and redeem it for far higher value.

So take 30 seconds, register for the promo, and keep your eyes peeled for BW properties around North America as you plan your travels.
