mbna Best Western MasterCard Changes - Gold status with 1st purchase, Diamond status with $10K of purchases, changes in point earning



Our deluge of credit card changes for September continues!

mbna has given their Best Western MasterCard a slight refresh for the fall. The main changes happening to card are the additional points earning for using the card at Best Western properties as you'll now earn 5 points per dollar spent at BW properties, however the point earning on all other spending now drops to 1 point per dollar spent from 1.5. Definitely a downgrade on the regular spending. It appears they are really targeting big time Best Western users with this card now as not only does it earn more for BW stays but cardholders will now get Gold status on first purchase (rather than a one level elite status upgrade when reaching $6,000 in spend) and Diamond Status when spending $10,000 on the card within one year. Good news is the sign up bonus of 20,000 points remains.

Card details:

• Earn 1 Best Western Rewards® point for every $1 in eligible purchases‡
• Earn 5 Best Western Rewards® points for every $1 in eligible purchases at Best Western properties‡
• Earn 20,000 Best Western Rewards® points†† on your first purchase – enough for a free night stay
• You will be awarded "Gold Status" upon first use of your credit card and "Diamond Status" when you spend $10,000 in eligible purchases within one year◊◊
• No limit to the Best Western Rewards® points that can be earned using the credit card in a year
• Use your Best Western Rewards® points in many ways – hotel stays, elite status upgrades◊◊, dining, airfare, gift cards and more.
• 1.99% promotional annual interest rate† (AIR) on balance transfers✪ for the first 10 full months
