Aeroplan Best Western Quadruple Dip extended

Aeroplan and Best Western have extended the
offer to earn 1,500 Bonus Aeroplan miles for every $100 Best Western Travel Card purchased to August 31st. You may recall my post from on how it can be combined with Best Western's Aeroplan stay bonus and credit card use to complete a quadruple dip!

What follows is a repeat of my explanation on how to earn up to 3,700 Aeroplan miles for a $100 Best Western stay with this Quadruple dip

Here is the scenario, I am going to buy a $100 BW Travel Card on my American Express Gold Rewards Card and use that for a Best Western stay that comes in at the $100 mark:

Dip #1: Purchase a $100 Best Western Travel Rewards card with my American Express Gold Rewards Card which will earn 2 Points per dollar as it is travel purchase. Those 2 points can be converted to Aeroplan at 1:1 so I effectively earn 200 Aeroplan miles. If you hold other Aeroplan cards you will earn between 50 - 150 Aeroplan miles depending on the card.
Dip #2: Earn the 1,500 Bonus Aeroplan Miles for purchasing the $100 Travel Card
Dip #3: Book and Stay on a mileage or point qualifying rate at any Best Western. Once completed I will earn 250 Aeroplan miles as the standard stay bonus
Dip #4: Earn 1,750 Bonus Aeroplan Miles as part of the Best Western/Aeroplan summer stay promotion.

Total Aeroplan miles earned is 3,700! Not bad for a $100 stay. If you are lucky enough you may even find some hotels below the $100 mark and have some money left over on your BW Travel Card however with it being summer season I don't figure there will be many below the $100 range, chance are they will be around the $120-$160 mark. If that is the case you can put the remaining balance of $20-$60 on your Aeroplan earning credit card or even better buy more BW Travel Cards as you will earn 1,500 Miles for every $100 purchased.

Here are the links to the two bonus promotions:

Travel Card purchase:
1,500 Bonus Aeroplan Miles for every $100 BW Travel Card purchased. Full details Until Aug 31,12


Bonus Miles for Summer Stays 1,750 Bonus Aeroplan Miles per stay at participating Best Western hotels Worldwide. Bonus can be earned on a maximum of 3 stays.. Full details, Online Registration and Booking (Registration is required) Jun 17 - Aug 19, 12



  1. Don't use Amex to purchase. They convert your funds to USD and charge you more than actual card value.

    Plus I have not found any hotel that gives you the rate with AP promotion.

    1. The AP Promotion does not have a set rate. All you do is register for it and then stay on any qualifying rate ie best available, AAA, etc.
