While Best Western Rewards is not my top favorite hotel rewards program, I do find myself traveling to somewhere that Best Western property could be the only option with a great rate to stay at. Best Western also sometimes has nice promotion going on that is enough to make me switch from my favorite hotel chains to it. 

With so many Best Western properties around the world, you never know if or when you will come across a nice Best Western property that's worth staying at. Therefore, you should consider joining the Best Western Rewards if you have not done that. 

Here's one easy way to fast-track yourself to one of their top tier elite status of Diamond without a single stay or status match. The Diamond is only one below the highest elite status called Diamond Select.

    If status match is not something that you want to pursue, Best Western has another method to instantly upgrade your account to Diamond Elite status. 

    If you have a business, you can sign up for Best Western Business Advantage Program. After successfully enrolling in the program, your account which is considered an account owner will be instantly elevated to Diamond status and any employees are elevated to Gold status.

    Why Best Western Business Advantage?

    Two things that I love about the Best Western Business Advantage is the ability to make a reservation with a preferred discounted rate that typically is almost identical to Member Advanced Purchase Rate, but the Business Advantage preferred rate comes with flexible cancellation that allows free cancellation up to 1 day before arrival date. Then you also receive 10% more bonus points that are in addition to the 30% bonus points for qualifying stay with your elevated Diamond Elite status. All you have to do is simply join the Business Advantage program and the rest is automatically processed by Best Western.
