No more 250 Pts for Best Western Reviews

Just noticed that the 250 Reward Points for providing a review after a stay at a Best Western has disappeared. I guess the truth about a stay must now go to the Dark Side - or, rather, Tripadvisor.

I just did one on Dec. 5 and it posted 250 pts on the 8th.
I always thought it was an easy way to get a few points...too bad is going to end.

Has disappeared from where?

The card you see in most every BW hotel promoting this says to go to:
www.bwfeedback.com
I just did that and I see there (well, at the resolved site) that it still mentions the 250 bonus points.

There was always an official limitation of 1 250-point review bonus per 30 days, and it was always IME slightly hit-or-miss whether / how much that was enforced and whether or not reviews done in other ways (such as the begging for reviews in emails) would post.

I haven't done it a while simply because it's not worth the bother of keeping track of those 30 days to do reviews most of them time, for that few points (relative to the points I earn for a stay, since I only stay at BW when stay promos are going on).

1 every 30 days was the rule

Actually the old rule was only one review, per 30 day period, (only 1 bonus) would earn that 250 points.

If I had multiple stays I would wait until after the 30 days had passed before I answered the email, or post a review. Worked for me!

Mr. Tanfox completed a survey on 12/ 20 and the 250 bonus points posted on 12/22. Not sure where OP found his info, but bonus points for surveys are still posting.

Thanks/Got my 250 pts/apologies for any confusion

The card you see in most every BW hotel promoting this says to go to:
www.bwfeedback.com
I just did that and I see there (well, at the resolved site) that it still mentions the 250 bonus points.


Thanks for the link. I tried it and it still did not work for me so I contacted BW Custormer Service who gave me this link:

http://survey.medallia.com/?bwfeedless

I tried it and the survey form came up for me on my second try. I am fairly confident I will get the 250 points - not much. agreed, but I am just shy of Platinum (also not much, agreed

Initially, I went to my Member Page and tried logging in to page where you could submit survey/reviews and got a message saying "this program is no longer available,: which is why I thought it was gone. Usually, I get an email message from BW inviting me to provide a survey response. This stay had a successful best internet rate claim with it, so I thought initially that might have been the prob.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Apologies for any confusion caused.

The link you posted is exactly the same as what I linked with the words "at the resolved site".

In other words, when I click on www.bwfeedback.com, it redirects me to ("resolves to") http://survey.medallia.com/?bwfeedless. I don't know why it doesn't do that for you, maybe it has to do with you being in Canada, I dunno.
