With the points from this card you have various redemption options with the top two being free nights at Best Western hotels or converting the points to airline miles including Aeroplan. In fact for the latter we list this card as one of three you should get for the Ultimate Aeroplan Credit Card portfolio. The sign up bonus on this card is worth 12,000 Aeroplan Miles, so not a bad deal seeing there are essentially free outside of your spend. You can pull out better value however by using the points for actual award nights at Best Western Hotels (such is the case with almost any hotel program).
Free nights at Best Western run anywhere from 8,000 points to 24,000 points per night which means the sign up bonus could get you anywhere from 2 to 7 free nights.
For example you could do three nights at the Best Western Premier Bangtao Beach Resort and Spa and have points to spare:
The hotel itself doesn't seem too shabby for a BW!
And there are many more options around the globe that you can choose from seeing that Best Western has over 4,100 hotels in over 100 countries.
