JUMP14: stay 2 times 4/7/14 - 5/18/14, get $50 travel card (exp 9/1/14), reg req'd

Showing in my Register for Special Offers now is this (along with all the usual silly variants for AAA, CAA, Ride Rewards, etc):
BWR members who register and then stay 2 times between 4/7/14 - 5/18/14 and get a $50 Travel Card

Availability: 04/07/2014 - 05/19/2014
Promo Code: JUMP14

Details

Limit one (1) promotional USD $50 Best Western Travel Card per Member during the Promotion Period. Promotional USD $50 Best Western Travel Card expires September 1, 2014. No extensions, substitutions or replacements available. Best Western Rewards enrollment (existing or new) is required prior to the first qualified stay. Best Western Rewards enrollment may be completed by visiting bestwesternrewards.com. Promotion is not valid with any other offer, promotion, or discount.

Qualified stays which take place during the Promotion Period but which have a check-in or a check-out date that overlaps the beginning or ending of the Promotion Period will be counted towards the Promotion. Each Best Western® branded hotel is independently owned and operated. Best Western and the Best Western marks are service marks or registered service marks of Best Western International, Inc. ©2014 Best Western International, Inc. All rights reserved.
No bonus points at all, short expiration time, bleh... At least it isn't tying up too much time (the whole promo lasts only about 5 weeks).

And, as before, they can't get the end date of the promo straight: Two places out of three it stays it ends 5/18, the remaining place it says it ends 5/19. Why do they have this discrepancy promo after promo after promo???

Just registered...better than nothing, but I was hoping for some airline mileage bonuses. Dont see any other than Southwest. Really wanted a legacy US carrier since you can get mileage and have this stay count for these types of promotions, right?

If that cluttered list on the terms and conditions is correct, no continental European countries appear to be participating...is that right?!

I haven't seen legacy mileage promos at BW for this spring, only over at Choice:

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/choic...u-apr-4-a.html (in the Choice forum)

(Obviously, by now Apr 4 has come and gone. So the AA/US promo is the only one still left.)

Can I register for both the $50 promo and double WN miles promo at the same time?

The boilerplate language in the promo registration is confusing me(Promotion may not be valid with other offers, promotions, or discounts). Before I signed up for both promos, I wanted to make sure BW would let me participate in both the double WN point promo and the $50 2 stays promo for the same stay? If I have to choose I will go with the $50 promo, but I'd prefer both.

No, not for the same stay. The only question is whether you could register for one, complete it, and then register for the other (for further stays). But BW is slow to post promo bonuses (it can take weeks) that I'm not sure if you'd have time to wait for the first one to post and then switch to the second one, before the promo period would be over for the second one.

You have to have your earning preference set to Southwest if you want to earn a Southwest promo. But if both a Southwest promo and a BW promo are active at the same time, having your earning set to Southwest precludes you from earning the BW promo. Someone discoved that the hard way in the previous promo period; see here:

I'm thinking the promotion ends 5/19, so the last day to STAY is 5/18, hence the two different dates.

I've done mine stays and the T&Cs say I should expect an email confirming achieving this bonus in 2 to 3 weeks. Has anyone already received this email confirmation yet? I'm a week and a half from my 2nd stay so should get one later this week or early next. Just curious how quickly the notice actually is sent out since I have a hotel booked in mid-May where I planned to use this TC (and the $25 one I should be receiving any time now).


UPDATE: Just received the $50 Travel Card email and my 2nd stay was two week's ago Monday, posted Wednesday. So slightly more than two weeks. (Now waiting for that $25 card I was offered last week.) Booked a hotel in Amsterdam for later this month, will be half paid for with these two cards.

As another data point, my second stay was a 4/23 checkout, both stays posted a day or two later (first stay was a few days prior) and I got my bonus e-mail this evening. So slightly more than a week for me.
