Thank you for contacting Best Western International.

We apologize but we no longer have this offer.

If we can be of further service, please do not hesitate to contact us

Phooey on apologies. Why didn't they just make an annoucement, put it in the newletters, whatever? No mention of dropping the program in their new web design press release either.
Plus, they have substantially reduced the number of properties that accept pets.
Lost my business. Yippee, no more waffles.
I can confirm the above. I booked a room and phoned Best Western. They only match the new rates, No more $ 100 Travel Card.
