- Best Western typically sells the points at 1 cent/point. So its 45% discount from that price. But the difficulty with Best Western points is to get good value out of them.
- One of the best bargains using Best Western points is to use them for stay in "Stockholm, Sweden". There are lot of Best Western hotels there and reasonably priced on points so that you would really get good value out of them.
- Best Western points do not expire. (good news?)
- You can buy 5 packages of 10k points each. So the limit for buying is 50k points per Best Western Rewards account.
Choice Privileges Points Deal - Various packages = 0.4 cent/point to 0.45 cent/point value - 04/03:
- Choice Privileges typically sells the points at 1.1 cent/point ($11 for 1000 points), so this one is good deal compared to that.
- Best use of choice points is in Europe where you get real good value in hotel redemption especially in shoulder season. But do remember that Choice points expire on December 31st, 2 years after the year you earned them. So make sure you buy only if you have good use of them.
- You can transfer 6000 Choice privileges points to 1800 Southwest rapid reward points and those points DO COUNT for Southwest companion pass. So it would be equivalent of buying Southwest points at a rate of 1.33 cent/point which considering you get closer to Southwest companion pass is not a bad deal.
- There are 4 different package on sale and you can buy at max 2 of each kind (so total of 8 packages). Typically Choice Points sell out fast, so if you really need them move fast to purchase them on Daily Getaways!
