March 2 Update: Best Western Rewards extending elite status for all members to 2022, 50% discount on transferring Aeroplan Miles and a lot of new bonus offers



Another hotel chain has come out with a great loyalty move in light of the Coronavirus scare. Best Western Rewards just announced that all of its members globally will maintain their current status through January 31, 2022 without needing to fulfill the necessary qualifications. In addition, BWR® members who suffered a downgrade at the end of 2019, as a result of restricted travel, will be leveled-up to their previous tier and will maintain that status through January 31, 2022 without needing the necessary qualification. We discuss this trend of extending status in our latest podcast, however at that time most chains were only extending status for residents of China or those who travelled to China or Asia frequently. Both Shangri-La Hotels and Best Western have gone beyond this offer with extensions to everyone globally. (Source Best Western)
"All BWR members worldwide are eligible for elite status protection and no action is required on the part of the member. Status will be maintained for all members regardless of their current tier, ensuring both new and veteran members are protected at this time."

Aeroplan is offering a special for transferring miles to other members. Normally it costs 2 cents per mile to transfer however until March 16 they have halved the cost to 1 cent per miles. Ideally you don't want to transfer miles however if a family member perhaps doesn't earn many miles and is sitting on a few thousand that can put you over the hump for an award ticket then it might make sense to pay for the transfer.

Also on the Aeroplan news front. As of yesterday there was small change to mileage accumulation on Avianca. Basically you'll earn less miles in booking class S and no miles for booking class U. (Source Aeroplan)
