Book on Agoda, still get Best Western Rewards points?

Hey guys,


Simple question which I unfortunately couldn't find an answer for using the search option


Can I book a room through Agoda and still get reward points? Would be great since then I could earn miles for QR and Best Western.

No. See here (the full BW T&Cs):

EARNING POINTS FOR STAYS

All stays are eligible to earn points (“Eligible Stays”) with the exception of the following (Non-Eligible Stays”):

Stays booked through online travel agencies (“OTAs”), such as priceline.com, expedia.com, travelocity.com, booking.com, kayak.com (i.e., channels other than Best Western branded booking channels);
And Agoda is simply another of those.

Why do you want to book on Agoda? If it's because you get a lower rate, you should try for a BRG (Best Rate Guarantee) instead.

Thanks for your answer. The reason I want to book through Agoda is that they give me a ridiculous amount of QRPC (Qatar Airways Privilege Club) miles. I value these more than Best Western points so I guess I should forego the Best Western loyalty scheme.
