No more 250 best western points for survey after a stay?

Did Best Western ended the 250 BW points for a short survey after your stay?
It looks like they no longer award the points and the line where you enter your BW number is gone.
Does anyone have more info?

This is the link to the survey:

I have only ever filled out the survey by responding to an email specifically for a particular stay at a particular property. And my 250 bonus points have always posted, generally within a few days. In fact, I just filled out surveys for three recent stays a few days ago, and the points have already posted.

Did you not receive an email inviting you to fill out a survey for each stay?

I just completed a survey about a stay I had in July and at the end of the survey, it thanked me and said that I would be awarded 250 points. The survey was from an email invite.

Years ago you had to go that site to fill out surveys, and back then they used to give 250 points (once a month max) for doing that.

But in recent times they send you surveys by email (not necessarily for every stay, especially if you stay repeatedly at the same properties), and those that you receive and fill out you earn 250 points for.

So I presume they only ended the 250 points for unsolicited surveys.

I just caught up on 4 of the Surveys from the past weeks trip. All stated 250 points to be credited as a thanks. Too bad I let some from stays earlier in the month "Expire" Thanks for asking the question. new to BW and had ignored the survey requests until today.

What do you mean by
I let some from stays earlier in the month "Expire"
? If they were that recent, you should still be able to fill them out and get points.

First BW stay for me in probably a year this weekend, and I just received an email with a request for a survey. The email didn't mention any bonus points, but at the end of the survey the page said:

"As a special thank you gift, 250 bonus Best Western Rewards® points will be added to your account."

the surveys apparently are only active for a few weeks and some of my recent stays were just beyond that.

Same experience here. I just filled out the survey for a September 2 stay.

If they send you an invite for a survey you will get the points.
In the past, you can get these 250 pts after every stay without invite.
Just go to the site fill the survey and you get the points after a few days.
In some hotels they still have a advertisement about the survey and the 250 pts for it.
I saw it on the desk in my room on one of my recent stay, but apparently this offer is no longer valid uuless you get the invite.
I guess you can fill a complaint with customer services and they will give you the points if you have no invite.

I just completed two stays near the beginning of March. Just a few minutes ago, I completed both surveys. At the end of both surveys I got a thank you screen advising that I will receive 250 points for filling out the survey. The email I got didn't mention the 250 points in it, but clearly they are still being credited.

Had 2 stays (early-mid March) in Europe and the 250 survey bonus points posted ~ 1 week afterwards.
