Monday Madness- Win a Best Western Travel Card!

During my teenage years, my family made several journeys up the Pacific coast to Washington State in order to get out of suburbia and spend a week with my aunt at her house in the country. I say journey because this was definitely no leisurely road trip. My dad was a man on a mission- he had to make good time.  We drove through San Francisco and peered out the window at a city that I had never actually set foot in (how dare we think about stopping? If we lingered we may hit traffic!), craned our necks up at the redwoods with our heads pressed against the glass of the car windows as we zipped through the national park, and watched the dramatic cloud-shrouded Oregon coastline whiz past us.  During our lengthy stretches of time in the car, I sat with our AAA guidebooks in my lap, searching for a hotel room for the night.  My family was on a budget and my dad always had me look for a  Best Western on the route.  He was looking for value and didn’t want to sacrifice a comfortable bed or clean room to stay in some roach motel.  Best Western was a brand he trusted. Though they were less than glamorous, those trips fostered my love of travel and today when I stay in a Best Western with my own children, I can’t help but drift back to memories of the excitement  pulling up to a new hotel each day.


My guess is that your family has stayed in a Best Western hotel too. With over 4,000 hotels worldwide it would be pretty hard not to! If your family has a trip planned in the next year, whether it be a road trip, destination vacation, or a soccer tournament, it may be worth considering the following deal…

The Deal: Now Through Dec. 31, 2011, purchase a $100 Best Western Travel Card® and Receive a $10 Gift Card of Your Choice!

Customers who purchase a $100 Best Western Travel Card  will receive their choice of a $10 gift card to Amazon.com, Best Buy, Walmart, Darden restaurants, or Best Western for free! These  Best Western Travel Cards work like cash at any of the  4,000+ Best Western worldwide and can be purchased here. If you know you will be staying at a Best Western hotel in the coming year there is no good reason not buy some and stock up some free $10 stocking stuffers!

And now for the GIVEAWAY!!!!
