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.

Authorized User Fee
There is no authorized user fee for the Best Western Mastercard. This lets you add additional users to your card in order to earn Best Western Points faster.
Foreign Transaction Fee
The Best Western Mastercard has a 0% foreign transaction fee which is good for anyone making international purchases. Unfortunately, there's not much to be earned using the card internationally due to the low earning rates and lack of categories on the card.
You can use the rewards calculator to calculate how many points, miles, or cash back you can earn based on your spend per category. This calculator will also give you the dollar value of the card based on the value of the rewards earned and how much each benefit is worth to you, minus the annual fees. You can click the Compare A Card button to compare this card side by side any other card featured on the site within the same calculator.
Note! All category spend entered in the primary card's column (first column when comparing cards) will carry over to all credit card calculators on the site. This means you will not have to re-enter the same information again and again when browsing during the session.
