I don't normally stay with BW but the stay 2 get 1 free promo is attractive. I want to earn airline miles instead of BW points... does this affect the promotion eligibility? I don't seem to see any terms in the promotion that prohibits it

Must be sent to points, which is described in terms and conditions

They only mentioned that an eligble night is "a night stay...at a rate eligible for earning points", which I think describes the rate rather than where to credit it...?

I guess I would call them and ask them.
By the way I've earned my free night and all that with points and if and when you do get it and you get the confirmation email, scroll to the very bottom and you will have a chance to register for triple points by May 5th. A lot of people don't know to scroll down to the bottom of those emails because sometimes they have things there to register for promotions that for some strange reason Best Western doesn't want you to find out.
Also, that voucher is good for between 5,000 points and 70,000 points which is much better than just $100 gift card. So if you're in Vegas or Disneyland you can use it to 70,000 and get a good room.​

I spoke with them. The earning preference does not matter. They only require the rate to be a point-earning rate (i.e. not OTA)
