Canadian Offer: 50,000 pts (20K approval, 30K for 1k spend) for MBNA BW Mastercard

Apologies if this has already been posted, but I didn't see it yet.

Just got an email with an invitation to apply for the MBNA Best Western MC with an additional 30k points if you complete $1k spending on the card by Oct 31st. I'm sure there are better offers out there, but just thought I'd pass it along since there aren't nearly as many Canadian offers out there. Looks like a 30K point bonus over the usual 20K upon approval.

Earn up to 50,000 Best Western Rewards points!
Offer expires on October 31, 2012

No Annual Fee
Receive 20,000 bonus Best Western Rewards points after your
first qualifying purchase††
Spend $1,000 before October 31, 2012 on your new card and receive
additional 30,000 bonus points†††.
Earn 1.5 Best Western Rewards points for every $1 in net retail purchases‡
1.99% promotional annual interest rate† (AIR) on balance transfers*,
access cheques and deposits* for the first 6 full months
Get upgraded to Best Western Rewards Elite Status when you spend
$6,000 on your card within one year‡‡
Earn even more Best Western Rewards points by staying at Best Western
hotels or making everyday purchases

Thanks very much for posting ! I haven't received this e-mail and it may be worth following up. As you mentioned, decent promotion for a no annual fee Canadian issued credit card.

And welcome to FlyerTalk shakezula !!!

There's a big thread on this over in the Aeroplan forum, but lots of people are still missing bonus points - most of us the special bonus of 30,000 points, but also some people missing stanard bonus of 20,000 points.

Just wondering if anyone else that visits this forum has the card and if they've seen all their points awarded?

I registered for this card in September. Made the minimum $1K spend level in approx 2 weeks. Received the 20K standard bonus points with my first statement (end of Sept). Received the 30K extra bonus points by mid-October.

Others have reported that they've been advised that the bonus points can take 8-10 weeks to post (after calling MBNA).

Initial 20K points posted before 30K bonus points, which posted yesterday or the day before. So all 50K are present and accounted for over here.

In my case the 30k posted first and then the additional $20k after I hit $1k on the card.

Another question, does BW match status from other chains? Given how attractive the rates are I am seriously thinking of switching from HH Diamond level which is a joke unless you just want more points.

The only problem is BW is weak in NYC and some other key cities.

Just saw the status match thread which appears to be only to Elite, not higher categories?

I'm pretty sure they will match whatever your status is with your current hotel program, with the BW equivalent.
