Best Western Gold Elite Status

Review the benefits of the Best Western Mastercard, calculate how many Best Western Points you can earn based on your spend, and compare results.

The Best Western Mastercard is the no annual fee card that Best Western offers for their rewards program. While the card does offer Best Western Gold Elite Status, the rewards earned by running spend through the card is minimal. You're better off grabbing the Best Western Premium Mastercard or placing spend on a card that earns a higher return on travel and/or hotel spending.

Bonus Categories

The Best Western Mastercard features only one bonus category and that's spending done at Best Western brand hotels. There is no cap to the amount of Best Western points you can earn spending in the bonus category and no limit to the amount of points you can earn in general with the card.
