If you spend more nights a week in hotels than you do in your own bed, a credit card associated with a hotel chain might be a wise financial move, especially if that card allows you to earn points toward free stays. And if that credit card offers a generous bonus points offer just for making an initial purchase? Even better.
The Best Western Rewards World MasterCard does all this. And its bonus points offer is a generous one. Cardholders earn 10,000 bonus rewards points after they make their first purchase with the card or transfer an existing credit-card balance to the card.
You can then redeem these points — and any other points that you earn through the card — into free nights at any Best Western hotel across the country. In fact, the 10,000 points are all you need for a free night’s stay at a Best Western hotel located anywhere in the country. And if you don’t want the hotel stay, you can also turn your points into airline tickets, gift certificates and merchandise.
Earning points outside of the bonus offer is fairly simple, too. You’ll earn 15 rewards points for every dollar that you charge for Best Western purchases. You’ll earn a single point for every other dollar that you charge.
This card is also inexpensive to own. It comes with no annual fee. Be careful with the purchase interest rate, though. If your credit score is high, this rate can be as low as 13.99 percent. But if your score is weak, your purchase interest rate can soar to 24.99 percent.
