Easy way to earn extra Aeroplan miles if you are planning Best Western stays

Best Western is once again running their bonus miles promotion for buying Best Western Travel Cards online. Best Western travel cards are just like gift cards and can be used towards stays at any Best Western Hotel. This promotion offers buyers a whopping 1,500 bonus Aeroplan miles for every C$100 in Travel Card purchases. On top of this you will earn whatever miles or points you earn on your credit card to make the purchase and then you will earn your regular Best Western Rewards or Aeroplan miles on the actual hotel stay.

If you collect miles in other programs the promotion is also available for AIR MILES, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta, Southwest and US Airways but the bonus per $100 is not as lucrative as the Air Canada offer. The travel card bonus offer is valid for purchases made until Aug 31, 10

Best Western is also running another promotion at this time that can be taken advantage of with the travel card offer in that for every two stays you complete Worldwide between June 20 and August 15 you will earn a free stay voucher that can be used in the U.S. or Canada.

  1. Most points hounds are aware of double dipping but did you know you can triple dip as well? It is not very often you see a triple dip offer but this is one. If you use your Aeroplan Credit Card (CIBC/AMEX) to buy the Travel Cards, get the bonus for the travel cards and then get your miles for you actual stay, you will have completed the elusive 'triple dip'

  2. When shopping around for a travel reward credit card I implore you not to jump at the first offer that catches your fancy. Some of the advertisements that we see on TV and in the magazines are pretty slick but remember, the devil is in the details. And when it comes to credit cards, it is oh so true.
