Best Western slashes elite requirements for 2021 (Woo Hoo!)

Best Western has slashed elite requirements for 2021 in half.  Now, aspiring Best Western elites can earn coveted status with as few as 5 nights or 3 stays or 5,000 points.  Woo hoo!  That last part was meant to be sarcastic.  Elite status with Best Western doesn’t get you much other than free water and extra points:

If you really want Best Western elite status (that free water sounds exciting, doesn’t it?), it’s easy to get via a status match, found here.

If easy paths to hotel elite status interest you, please see our non-sarcastic posts about Hyatt and Marriott:

I did the recent status match and they didn’t even ask for a screenshot showing evidence of my status with Hyatt.

Best Western status is a joke. Status matched to Diamond Select a few years ago. Stayed at half a dozen or so Best Westerns. You get a bottle of water and a granola bar at check-in. That’s it. No special treatment or better rooms.
