    I am planning a driving trip from Florida to Montana. A gift card from Best Western would allow me to stay at some of the really nice Best Western Inns featured on this blog. This travel blog was the original inspiration for my trip!

    I would give a $250 Best Western card to my sister who will be my traveling companion. What a wonderful adventure we could have thanks to Best Western.

    By Stacey on November 1, 2011 9:26 AM

    I'd use it for our upcoming Disney trip!

    And I'd give one to my grandmother, she loves to travel and has a good friend she travels with and they are always looking for a good deal!

    By Jody W on November 1, 2011 9:27 AM

    I think we'd take a road trip with our Best Western card. Maybe Vermont or even up to Toronto.

    I'd likely give a card to my dad, so he could join us on our adventure too.

    By Kim S on November 1, 2011 9:27 AM

    I would use it to go visit my friends in West Virginia and I would give the second one to my Mom to use when her and my Aunt go away to go to the theatre all over the place.

    By cindy b on November 1, 2011 9:27 AM

    I would go to Italy and take my fabulous best friend! We've both been dreaming about going to Rome forever!!

    By Joy on November 1, 2011 9:29 AM

    I would give the second one to my daughter who is in her second year of college and just studies studies and does her design projects. It has been going on two years since we took a trip any where together! I would love to take her back to New York for a well deserved break!

    By Gingermommy on November 1, 2011 9:29 AM

    I would visit New York and give my mom the other

    By Marla on November 1, 2011 9:29 AM

    I would use my travel card to go on a shopping trip to grove city. I would gift the second one to my grandma so she could come too :)

    By Diana on November 1, 2011 9:29 AM

    I would use the gift card at Christmas for our little getaway.

    I would give the other card to my friend in Kentucky that needs a break from life for a couple of days.

    By Curtis L. on November 1, 2011 9:29 AM

    I'd take a special trip to Montreal Canada for a foodie weekend and I'd use the second card for my special friend who would be surprised to see where we're going as I whisk her to the airport!

    By Chalbe on November 1, 2011 9:30 AM

    I'd use it to visit my friends in Montreal, haven't been there for over 8 years! I would give the 2nd one to my friend Cathey who's in the same boat, we both move out of Montreal 15 years ago and we only made it back a few times. I do miss the shopping and the great restaurants and of course my friends, however they are visiting in my region more often than I get to go back to Montreal.

    By Heather on November 1, 2011 9:32 AM

    I'd use my Best Western card toward our 2012 family vacation we have been saving up for. We have never taken a REAL family vacation and are looking so forward to it.

    I'd give the additional card to my brother who is in the military and whom I have not seen or hugged in almost 5 years.

    Thanks for doing this!

    By William S on November 1, 2011 9:32 AM

    I would use one to take my 2 princesses on a land portion of a cruise we are planning for. The second card would be given to my inlaws. He was just diagnosed with Alzheimers and this could be used as a quick get away before he loses everything.

    By Harry Barbee on November 1, 2011 9:32 AM

    I would use it to go see my Mom and dad for thanksgiving and christmas .I would give the other to my father in law whos mother is not doing very well in a rest home in Missouri He has not seen her in a few years and I would love to help him out by giving him this card.

    By Rick Flow on November 1, 2011 9:32 AM

    My wife and I would use my BW points for 2 rooms in Asheville and use the card for food and fun. The other card would be given to my twin sister so we could share our upcoming birthday weekend (Nov 12).

    By SunRae on November 1, 2011 9:33 AM

    I would use it to visit Niagara Falls and I would take my hubby of 30 years along for the ride!

    By @mitydad on November 1, 2011 9:33 AM

    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity! I would use the card for my son, who is five. He would get a chance to see his grandparents. They are "separated" so it takes two separate trips to see them. One would go to him, he is five, to see one of them, the other would go to the other, to come see us.

    They are getting up there in age, and honestly it would be the last time they might see their grandson. I realize everyone has a story like this, but you asked!

    By Emma Walpole on November 1, 2011 9:35 AM

    Getting closer to Christmas time, I would use the gift card to stay in either Erie Penn, or Birchrun MI to shop at the outlet malls. I would give the other one to my in-laws as they are both retired and could use a break from looking after our eldery grandmother. I would hope they would travel down to NY state for a change of scene

    By Brenda C on November 1, 2011 9:35 AM

    Finances don't warrent a full vacation, every now and again my kids and I pick a local hotel with nice immenites and take a 1night vacation. would love to make it a whole weekend! the other card would go to my mother, since I live in a really small apartment I would love for her to come visit us from Florida and have a place she could sleep while she is here!

    By Harry Barbee on November 1, 2011 9:37 AM

    I would give it to my wife and to my Father in law to go see his mother .She is in a rest home in Missouri and hasnt been doing very well the last 2 years.He hasnt seen her in a couple of years and my wife hasnt seen her in at least 10 years that I know of.I told her she needs to go because she is going to regret it if she doesnt and something happends to her.God forbid

    By Sylvie Levesque on November 1, 2011 9:38 AM

    I would use it in Toronto and visit CN tower !

    By Colleen C on November 1, 2011 9:38 AM

    I would give it to my parents so they could travel to visit relatives in Ottawa. They are retired, but are reluctant to accept help, this would be a nice way to help them that wouldn't impact their pride!

    By Luc Brunet on November 1, 2011 9:39 AM

    I would make my fiancee very happy !!! :o)

    By Jerry Thomason on November 1, 2011 9:39 AM

    I would not use the card for myself I would give both to a friend of mine who has kidney failure and her mom so they could go spend some quality time together and have some enjoyment together because the medicial bills has taken all the money and can not afford to go otherwise

    By Anna Attia on November 1, 2011 9:39 AM

    What a treat it would be to win! I would use to take daughter to visit UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz.They are her dream schools, and they would help pay for lodging while we visit these collesge campuses; one for me and one for her!!

    By Ellen B on November 1, 2011 9:41 AM

    I would take my first vacation since 1997! I really miss seeing the beach and ocean, also haven't seen that since 1997. This would be a great thing for us.

    By Stephen on November 1, 2011 9:42 AM

    We would take the kids to the final race of the 2011 NASCAR season in Miami-Homestead and I would give the second card to my mother for a nice relaxing vacation!!

    By raj on November 1, 2011 9:42 AM

    I'd use the first to pay for some reservations that I already have for coming Best Western stays in Ohio, Arizona, and Maryland, and then give the second one to my wife's parents, to help them as they travel during the holiday season.

    By Ellen B on November 1, 2011 9:43 AM

    I would love to give this to my husband. We haven't been on vacation since 1997. It would be great to see the ocean and beach for the summer of 2012.

    By James B. McGarvey on November 1, 2011 9:44 AM

    I would use it to take my wife to new hampshire to see our 4 month old grandson. The kids live in a small apt. and don't have room for guests. We just took an 18.5 % paycut due to "the economy" and can no longer afford to stay in hotels while travelling. This would be a great xmas suprise for my wife of 32 years. Thanks for your time.

    By Stephanie G on November 1, 2011 9:45 AM

    I would use the first card for a family history road trip. I want to check the archives in Louisville, Kentucky for possible information about my great-great-great grandparents. While in Louisville, I'd want to check out the zoo and several other tourist attractions. I've often been through Louisville, but I've never been TO it.

    I'd give the second card to my sister-in-law. I'd love to invite them for a visit, but I don't have the space to house their entire family while they're here. That way they could have a bit of help on the cost of the trip, and I'd get to see them sooner rather than later!

    By Sandra Fabian on November 1, 2011 9:48 AM

    If I won the $250 Best Western Travel Card I would go to L.A. TODAY to visit my grandma. Her health has really been going down hill this year and I hope she makes it until next July 2012 when we plan on visiting. Money is tight and we have been saving all year.

    And if I won the other $250 Best Western Travel Card, I would invite my grandma to take a lil trip with us while we are there....so that we can have some time together and so she can be treated like a Queen at Best Western and (ME)!!!

    By liz on November 1, 2011 9:48 AM

    I'd give the first one to my best friend who lost her job last year - so she can have a nice "getaway" weekend to try and destress a little bit.

    I'd give the second one to my Aunt for her birthday so she can visit the wine region in Chile - and since we share a birthday I'd hope she'd invite me to join her :)

    By Pat Evans on November 1, 2011 9:50 AM

    As I near my college graduation one of my major plans is to road trip to the entire continental United States. Being a poor college student, and trying to road trip the US while trying to write about it and make a living off my writing could be greatly aided by these gift cards.

    Meanwhile, the second card would go to anyone of the travelers who will be accompanying me on the trips. My sister, brother or mother, as well as friends are all candidates.

    By Jeff B on November 1, 2011 9:50 AM

    For MINE I would just take the car & randomly drive over a weekend & stop when I was tired... always wanted to spend a long weekend to myself like that...

    The gift one would go to the Theater Arts teacher at the local school; he works 7 days a week; sometimes 12-14 hours a day...

    By Aaron on November 1, 2011 9:56 AM

    I'd take a trip to see the brother in TX! And, give the gift to my mother so she can visit too.

    By Chrysta on November 1, 2011 9:59 AM

    I would use the GC to travel down to Seattle with my family for a mini-roadtrip. I only been there once 15 yrs ago and I would love to return with my children. Also it would be fun to give the other GC to my sister-in-law and her family so they could join us1

    By Pete H on November 1, 2011 10:01 AM

    I would use the first $250 Best Western Travel Card on our annual holiday trip to visit relatives in California; a stay at Best Western would make my sister-in-law's house a little less crowded (and allow us to sleep on comfy beds instead of on cots!).

    I would give the second $250 Best Western Travel Card to the local charitable organization I'm a member of to be put up as a silent auction prize at our annual holiday networking event. The event raises funds for our chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators, which among other things, provides pro bono assistance to charities in the community and also provides communications training to non-profits. This would be a very popular prize among our attendees!

    Thank for this great contest!

    By Ellen L. on November 1, 2011 10:01 AM

    I would use this for a special getaway with my husband and give the other one to a less fortunate family so they could have a getaway too.

    By tessa on November 1, 2011 10:05 AM

    I'd use my card for a romantic anniversary weekend away from the kids with my. Fiancee.

    The second card would go to my mom so she could get a well deserved girls weekend away with friends

    By Pete H. on November 1, 2011 10:07 AM

    I would use the first $250 Best Western Travel Card on our annual holiday trip to spend Christmas with relatives in California. The hotel stay would free up some space in my sister-in-law's house and also allow us to sleep in comfy Best Western accommodations rather than on cots -- or on the floor!

    I would give the second $250 Best Western Travel Card to the professional organization I belong to as a silent auction prize for our annual holiday networking event. The local chapter of International Association of Business Communicators uses the proceeds from the silent auction to fund its many community outreach programs, including pro bono work for local charities as well as free communications training for non-profits. The Best Western Travel Card would undoubtedly be one of the most popular items of the evening!

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter this contest!

    By Marcie Stoffer on November 1, 2011 10:12 AM

    I would use the $250 gift card to take my kids to NYC to see the decorations & tree! I would give the other card to my sister so she could bring her kids and we would make it a family reunion!

    By Sarina on November 1, 2011 10:13 AM

    My friend is getting married in Chicago so I'd use it towards my stay at the University Plaza location and I'd give the other card to my friend as part of her wedding present! The happy couple will be honeymooning in Denver so I'd give them the card for their travels!

    By Jodi Kozloff on November 1, 2011 10:15 AM

    We are traveling this winter to Fl from Mi. Another family/friends are following us..I would give one to the other family and keep one gc for ourselves. These gc's would take the sting out of the large expense of vacationing.

    By Nancy N. on November 1, 2011 10:15 AM

    The first card I would use to either travel on business (I attend events around the country a couple of times a year) or to take my daughter on a trip. She is 8 years old and autistic, and thinks staying in hotels is the best adventure ever.

    The second card I would give to my mom. Her longtime boyfriend is terminally ill and she may need to spend time staying in the hotel by the VA hospital that cares for him. At least then she wouldn't have to worry about the bill so much.

    By Laurel on November 1, 2011 10:23 AM

    I would use my $250 Travel card for our Holiday trip this year with my daughters!!

    I would give the second $250 Travel card for my sons to share so that they could join us and we could spend some time together (They aree working in different states) :(

    By Brian on November 1, 2011 10:32 AM

    I would use my $250 gift card to visit Ocean City, MD. I would give the second card to my parents who recently retired so they could enjoy the good life.

    By Kirsten Kimball on November 1, 2011 10:32 AM

    I would take my husband away for a weekend. We have no spare cash so this would be a real treat. I would give the other one to my daughter so she and HER husband could use it for a getaway, too.

    By Serena Debolt on November 1, 2011 10:34 AM

    I would use it to stay at the new Hudsons Hope Best Western, which is located directly above the old ferry landing where I used to fish as a young child. It sure holds alot of memories for me and that area will be gone once the new Site C dam is in place. It will be flooded!

    Second card will be given to my younger sister who took care of both my mom and dad in their final days. Her strength to do such a task is tremendous and I have so much respect and love for her.

    By Nick Rex on November 1, 2011 10:40 AM

    I would use the gift card towards my wife and I's hotel room for my cousin's wedding in December in Texas. The wedding just so happens to be the day after my 30th birthday as well. So being able to have some extra cash handy for my birthday would be tremendous.

    I would give the second gift card to my sister who is recently pregnant and could use a little help paying for their hotel room for the same wedding trip. They'll need the extra cash in preparation for the baby.

    By Sherry Lynn Harrington on November 1, 2011 10:44 AM

    I would use my card when I travel through the US next time. A Best Western hotel is often a welcome site on our long travels.

    I would give the other card to my father who also travels through the States and Canada. He would be thrilled to receive a Best Western gift card.

    By Thomas Lam on November 1, 2011 10:48 AM

    I would use the card for my vacation to Orlando Florida this decemeber. Of course it would be with Best Western.

    I would give the card to my spouse because she loves to travel

    By Gale P on November 1, 2011 10:52 AM

    I would use the travel card to do just that - travel! I'd go somewhere warm for a while, then jet off to somewhere a little cooler, then probably end up back in the warmer climate!

    I would share the other travel card with my daughter, who has been working very hard going to college - she deserves a break! We could travel together and have all sorts of fun!

    By leighannn keller on November 1, 2011 10:52 AM

    I would use my travel card for my upcoming trip in december for a stay in miami and I would give the other card to my sister in law, who is going on her honeymoon in 3 weeks.

    By Penny R on November 1, 2011 10:55 AM

    I would use the Best Western travel card to treat my husband to a stay at the Best Western Chateau Granville in Vancouver. We just came back from staying at this hotel, and we were both so impressed and hubby said he would love to stay at this hotel again.

    By Nicole B on November 1, 2011 11:06 AM

    I would use the gift cards for a weekend getaway for my husband & I. We have a 3 yr old and an eight month old and have yet to have an adult only night away!!! I would consider giving one to my parents for Christmas too, as they deserve a night out as well!

    By pam r. on November 1, 2011 11:06 AM

    I would use it to go visit my brother in Alberta for Christmas; and I would definitely give one to him so he could come see us instead!

    By Aaron D on November 1, 2011 11:06 AM

    I would use it to stay at Best Western to visit my grandfather in Winnipeg.

    I would give it to my mother so she could have some credits the next time she stays at Best Western or visits.

    By Jen on November 1, 2011 11:14 AM

    I would use one gift card for a stay in Kelowna to visit family and friends who I haven't seen in a long time. The other card I would give to a good friend who is working 3 jobs plus full time university. She definitely needs a getaway with Best Western!

    By Pamela W on November 1, 2011 11:15 AM

    1. I would use it to stay at the BEST WESTERN near Memphis so that we could eat some good BBQ on our road trip.
    2. I would give the other one my son who can't afford a vacation yet.

    By Jeremy on November 1, 2011 11:17 AM

    One gift card I would use to visit family in BC and the other card I would give to my grandparents. They would love to spend a few days on Vancouver Island!

    By Valda Robertson on November 1, 2011 11:20 AM

    I would visit California and stay at the Hacienda Best Western in Old Town San Diego. The Mexican restaurants around the hotel have delicious food. The atmosphere around Best Western is like being in a small town.
    My son graduated with a mechanical engineering degree in June; I would give him the other card. It would help defray hotel expenses while he seeks employment.
    Thank you BW for this opportunity.

    By Danna Parker on November 1, 2011 11:21 AM

    I would use my $250 BW gift card to go to all of my daughter's synchro skating competitions! I would give the other card to the team for their rooms as well!!

    By Truly on November 1, 2011 11:22 AM

    I'd go to Niagara. I'd give it as a gift to my husband to take me there :-)

    By Cheryl Magallon on November 1, 2011 11:23 AM

    I would use mine when my son graduates from Navy Bootcamp in Chicago, and give the other one to my parents and my sister and her kids so we could all attend the graduation event.

    By AG on November 1, 2011 11:26 AM

    I would use it for a snowboarding getaway, and give the other one to my " twin" brother...and make it an extra long weekend at the Canmore property!

    By Kyle on November 1, 2011 11:28 AM

    I'd use it for a weekend getaway. It would help make it possible. I may give it as a gift to my spouse.

    By William Le on November 1, 2011 11:32 AM

    Take a weekend in the town and stay at the Best Western.

    Will give it to my best friend so they can enjoy a weekend away.

    By Maggie on November 1, 2011 11:32 AM

    The husband and I really want to see NYC at Christmas time this year so we would use the giftcard for a long weekend there.
    My sister and her husband could really use a break from their three kids so I would invite the along with us!

    By Tanya on November 1, 2011 11:40 AM

    It would be nice to go visit friends and family, since we moved away a year ago. Also would be good to give one to my dad since he hasn't been able to visit yet.

    By Brett Hawley on November 1, 2011 11:41 AM

    I would take my girlfriend out for a very romantic weekend getaway!

    And if I had to give it to someone, I would give it to my girlfriend because she deserves a getaway.

    By Laura V. on November 1, 2011 11:44 AM

    We would take a trip to Disney World!!
    I would give a $250 gift card to cousin and her husband -- he's been medically discharged from the Army. He's served our country for 10 years and he and his family need a little break and time to relax together!

    By Kevin on November 1, 2011 11:44 AM

    I would use the gift card this Christmas to stay with my wife's family. It will be a packed house and we need all the space we can get!

    I would give the other gift card to buddy so that we could use it in Vegas if our wives let us go!

    By Lindsay G. on November 1, 2011 11:47 AM

    I think that I would have to use my card for a trip to D.C. to visit all my college friends. We don't get together nearly often enough anymore. I'd bring a few locals with me!

    I would give the second card to my best friend so that she could join me!!!

    By Sheri on November 1, 2011 11:53 AM

    If I won 2 Best Western Gift Cards, I would use one to take a roadtrip with my husband and two teenage daughters...their choice of location...within reason!

    The other gift card would definitely go to my best friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, so that she could have an 'in town' getaway with her husnand and stepson at the hotel with the best waterslides in our city.

    By Susan on November 1, 2011 11:56 AM

    * "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?"
    I would go visit my boyfriend.... who lives on the other side of the country! I haven't seen him since August and it would be such a treat to take him somewhere as a surprise!!!

    * "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?"
    I would give it to my mom. She does SO much for me, that she deserves a nice trip away with her and my father.

    By Stephen Wilson on November 1, 2011 11:58 AM

    It's been a stressful year for my wife and I due to financial burdens. A $250 Best Western gift card would afford us a few nights in a nice hotel to relax and enjoy eachother's company.

    If I could give a gift card it would definitely be to my parents. They have done so much for me to help me during tough times and although $250 isn't a lot, it's still an opportunity for me to say thanks and let them enjoy some quality time together somewhere nice.

    By helenlam on November 1, 2011 11:59 AM

    I'd use the card for my next ski trip and I'd give one to my niece so she could go to Disneyland!

    By lorne on November 1, 2011 12:13 PM

    i would use this as a summer trip next year as i havent been out of the city in years.
    a gift card would go to my sister so she could take a nice trip were her and my niece

    By mahogohney kavanaugh on November 1, 2011 12:29 PM

    i would use it to take my family and me on a vacation. we have been through alot and have never gone on one.

    By Abi on November 1, 2011 12:29 PM

    One I would use to travel to visit the medical school of my dreams.

    The other I would give to my mother who needs a vacation!

    By Karen on November 1, 2011 12:34 PM

    Use mine to travel to any Bet Western with spa/pool.

    Give to Son and wife for getaway.

    By Mary L on November 1, 2011 12:37 PM

    I would use it to go back to the Best Western in North Bay Village Florida. We stayed there after our cruise back in 2009 and absolutely loved it there and want to go back so bad. I would give the other one to my 3 grown children so they could get away for a weekend as they never able to afford to go anywhere.

    By Josee Blagdon on November 1, 2011 12:38 PM

    I would use it when we go down and visit my in-laws in Burlington, On and if I had to give it as a gift card to someone, it would be to my in-laws when they come down to visit us!

    By Karen Larson on November 1, 2011 12:46 PM

    I would use mine to visit the nearest Best Western with a pool and jacuzzi. Heal my sore bones.
    Would give other to son and wife for a getaway.

    By Toni on November 1, 2011 12:51 PM

    We love the Sunday Brunch at the Best Western / Eden Resort in Lancaster PA. I would take the whole family for a special meal. It's close to home - so I would share the second card with my sister from Philadelphia. When she brings the kids to town, she always stays there so the kids can enjoy the indoor pool.

    By Wendi Maroon on November 1, 2011 12:54 PM

    1. I would take my elderly mom on a weekend away. She hasn't been away since my dad passed away 6 years ago. They used to travel at least a couple of times a year, often more, even in their 70's. If I won it, she wouldn't be able to say no. And I'm sure she would remember how nice it is to get away and hopefully want to continue travelling again.

    2. I would give it to my mom, so we could still have the time to relax away together. I know she would never go with anybody else...we are extremley close.

    By Vincent on November 1, 2011 1:00 PM

    1. Take a trip with the family to somewhere nice.
    2. Friends

    By Laura on November 1, 2011 1:10 PM

    I would use the gift card to go for an overnight with my husband. We are new parents of a beautiful boy, so we haven't been able to have much alone time lately.

    I would give a gift card to my good friend who also just had a baby. Nobody knows how to enjoy down time like new parents!

    By Lily Chau on November 1, 2011 1:16 PM

    I would use this on my Christmas trip.

    I would gift it to my friend.

    By Jen on November 1, 2011 1:21 PM

    By Michelle Simons on November 1, 2011 1:41 PM

    I would run to one of your hotels and relax and give my sister the other so she could run away too.

    By Heather Cairns on November 1, 2011 1:51 PM

    I would use to gift card to take my family on a nice get away. We have not been able to go anywhere outside the city due to recent changes in our jobs and salaries. My kids would love to get away somewhere nice and go to maybe a theme park or maybe just a zoo.
    I would give the other card to a family in need. I work with a program that helps families who need food and money to prevent homelessness. I know the perople who need that kind of help would really appreciate the vacation!

    By Martin Hutnik on November 1, 2011 2:13 PM

    Take a vacation to New York for a couple of nights and have a blast in NYC!!! See shows and eat and see family.
    I would give it to my girlfriend!! We would spend it together

    By Cara on November 1, 2011 2:14 PM

    If I won a $250 gift card I would use it to pay for a room to visit my family for Thanksgiving in the San Francisco Bay Area. My parents house is too small to host everyone anymore so we rented a room at the Best Western to have a potluck Thanksgiving celebration together. If I won a $250 gift card to share, I would pay for 2 more rooms for my family members that are driving far to spend Thanksgiving with my mom & dad.

    By Kandapa E on November 1, 2011 2:17 PM

    I would take my family on a nice weekend getaway, somewhere local, and give the other to my parents so they could come with us.

    By Dee M. on November 1, 2011 2:18 PM

    I have been trying to plan a trip to Universal Studios Florida for some time now but money is tight. If I won the $250 gift card, I would put it towards my stay there in Orlando, Florida.

    I would share the other $250 gift card with my hubby since he would be my travel companion and it would help us out tremendously. My inlaws live in Tarpon Springs, Florida so I would also help cover the cost of their stay if they chose to come up to Orlando to visit the theme park with us. This would be a great gift for all of us!

    By Tammera Widell on November 1, 2011 2:19 PM

    A $250 gift card would help so much with a nice vacation on the Oregon Coast.
    I would give one to my Parents so they could join us. #travel

    By Maureen G on November 1, 2011 2:22 PM

    Off to Cape Cod I would go to visit my youngest niece working there. Would really help with airfare.

    The other $250 card would go to my middle niece who is job hunting and has had to spend what little money she has on traveling to interviews.

    By Ester G on November 1, 2011 2:23 PM

    If I won a $250 Gift Card I would go to visit my family that i haven't seen in a while.

    If I won a second $250 Gift Card, I would give it to my family so that they could come to visit me!

    By Dave Syrett on November 1, 2011 2:28 PM

    I would use my card for a very special trip to the land of magic . . . Disney World. The second card would go to one of my children and their family to meet up with me for the magic, since we live very far apart. This would be so awesome if it could happen sometime in December.

    By Maureen Warwick on November 1, 2011 2:35 PM

    When I win my $250 Best Western gift card I would use it to visit Jackson Hole, WY. Great old western town in a stunning location, with the Grand Tetons as backdrop & the beautiful Yellowstone National Park as neighbor. The BW Lodge at Jackson Hole has lovely rooms, good location for sightseeing & all the modern amenities one needs when traveling + much more. I'd love to give a 2nd gift card to my sister, who has never been to either Jackson Hole or Yellowstone before, so we could have adjoining rooms & share this amazing American adventure.

    By Emily Lai on November 1, 2011 2:37 PM

    I would use the gift card for my honeymoon. We got married in September, but couldn't go on our honeymoon right after the wedding. We're saving to hopefully make our trip in January. I've been very diligently entering all contests I come across and maximizing our reward points.

    I would give the gift card to my parents. In the 30years since they've been in the US, they have only gone back to China twice. With the gift card, it will make their next trip a little sooner.

    By Que Banh on November 1, 2011 2:40 PM

    I would book a nice weekend getaway for my parents who don't get to go on many trips. And I'd give the gift card to them to use for the trip! They have been so good to me & I like to spoil them when I can.

    By Pamela McKenzie on November 1, 2011 2:49 PM

    I would use it for a mini get away to Seattle for my husband and I. The second card I would give to my mom. Her and her sister love to travel together (both single) and they have so much fun. They deserve it. They are both in their mid 70`s.

    By Eugenie on November 1, 2011 3:00 PM

    I would use one for a weekend getaway for my husband and me . I would give the second one to my sister so that she could take a weekend trip with her husband,

    By Philippe F. on November 1, 2011 3:30 PM

    I'd use the card to go on a short winter vacation and give the other to my wife to make it a less short winter vacation.

    By Jeannette Laframboise on November 1, 2011 3:33 PM

    I would use it to stay in your lovely establishments on my way to visit my beautiful granddaughter that I don't see too often due to the distance between us. I would also give one of the cards to my son & wife so that they could do the same thing and come to visit me. That would make 2 visits with my little sweetie with a great stay at Best Western to rest up for the rest of the drive.;0)

    Thanks so much for another great contest!

    By Daniel Alfonso on November 1, 2011 3:35 PM

    I have always wanted to travel by train. I have always wanted to play Pebble Beach golf course and go wine tasting in northern California. If I had the $250.00 travel card I would book a trip with Amtrak to northern California. I would stay at the Best Western in Napa and play a round of golf at Pebble Beach. I would also go visit my family who live in Sunnyvale. I would visit Carmel and Monterey and watch the sea lions at Big Sur. What a trip of a lifetime!

    By M G on November 1, 2011 3:49 PM

    I would use the card for myself to take a trip to Hershey PA.

    I'd use it for my cross country move or maybe for a girls trip to Savannah that I've been wanting to do. The second one I'd give to my folks for Christmas because they are always so generous with me & they deserve a vacation.

    By Patricia Caradonna on November 1, 2011 5:13 PM

    My husband and I enjoy visiting our sons while they are away at college. We are renting an apartment for our sons near the college they are attending. On our last visit, to save money, my husband slept on the couch and I slept on a blow up mattress in our sons' apartment. It was one of the worst nights sleeps ever. I would use the $250 Best Western Travel Card to stay at the nearest Best Western hotel. Since my loving husband is the most generous man I have ever met, I would give the $250 Best Western gift card to him for additional trips to see our sons.

    By Marc-Andre Taillefer on November 1, 2011 5:18 PM

    I would go to Italy and take my girlfriend! We've both been dreaming about going to Rome.

    By Chris on November 1, 2011 5:27 PM

    I would give the card to my loving fiance who has taken such good care of me and my son. We just recently lost a baby after me having to be on bedrest for 1 month and not able to do anything for myself. He did everything....cooked, cleaned, made lunch for school, walked the dogs, read to my son at school after he dropped him, loved and cared for me and also worked.
    He could go on a golf trip wherever he wished with buddy.

    By stacey dempsey on November 1, 2011 5:30 PM

    By Craig G on November 1, 2011 5:38 PM

    If I gave it as a gift I would give it to my parents who are newly retired so they could explore around our beautiful country!

    By Hilary on November 1, 2011 5:39 PM

    Thanks

    By Ellen Bryan on November 1, 2011 7:25 PM

    I would use the gift card for a trip down south to visit my son and his family in Fort Rucker, Alabama. He has been in the Army for 17 (long) years and I don't get to see him or my grandchildren often enough.

    I would give the second card to my sister. She is an amazing woman who gives so much to others that she never has anything left for herself. She deserves a treat. A road trip and a few nights at a Best Western is just what she needs.

    By kk on November 1, 2011 7:38 PM

    I would go to Philadelphia. My aunt just returned from there and raved about the brotherly love the residents share with others! Unfortunately, she was injured during her trip, so she wasn't able to do all the things she wanted. I would give her the second card, so she can enjoy another trip when she recovers.

    By Scott on November 1, 2011 7:50 PM

    I would use the card for my next trip to San Diego for the 2012 Comic convention and I would give the other card to by buddy so he could come with me.

    I would give the card to my friends that travel with me, so we can have a great time on our way there

    By Paula Caudill on November 1, 2011 8:09 PM

    Planning a road trip to Colorado to be with my daughter when my grandchild is born, it's her first baby and I want to be with her. The card would come in handy for a stay at the nearest Best Western. And my other daughter is going with me, so I would give her the other card. Thank you

    By Chrystal on November 1, 2011 8:44 PM

    I'd book a hotel room for a wedding in Miami next year! The second card would go to a cousin who could use a cheap hotel stay as well. She's had a rough year and might enjoy a trip away!

    By Vaedra Mercier on November 1, 2011 8:44 PM

    I would take my family and go to my sister's city to spend some time around Christmas with her. She always travels to be with us as we have more room than she does. It would be fun to go away and stay in a hotel.

    I would give the other card to my friend who is in the process of a divorce and can't afford to go away anywhere...she needs a break!

    By Julian Buitrago on November 1, 2011 9:28 PM

    I would love to use the card and go to the BW Eden Resort in Lancaster, PA during the x-mas holidays to see Hershey Park & Dutch Wonderland X-mas lights n shows with my 6-year old son and wife. I would give the other card to my mother in-law so she can spend time and memories with her daughter (my wife) and her grand-son! "The BW experience its more than a trip! its a wonderful memory!"

    By H C on November 1, 2011 9:39 PM

    I had surgery this summer and now would love to get away for a visit with family and friends. I could use a little R and R; and could spread a little love to those I love.

    My brother has a long trip to drive from AZ on up to WI to see our elderly parents. I would like him to have a good night's sleep both ways. Best Western would be the best!

    By Eva Urban on November 1, 2011 9:46 PM

    I have undergone 22 surgeries for infertility and was blessed with a son in 2003, whom is now 7 years old, Evan. I vowed to make every day an adventure for him. When he first started speaking his words were Mama, Dadda and then car, train...any vehicle on wheels. I told him "One day we will take a train to Nova Scotia, where we can take you to the Atlantic ocean to dip your toes in the surf, go clam digging at the Bay of Fundy and see a lighthouse in real life". My son believes in leprechauns and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow...this wish I would make possible with this travel card. Would be awesome to stay at a Best Western and soak in hot bubbles after the journey.

    If I had to give the card to anyone, I would give it to my Mom & Dad who live in Nova Scotia. So they could visit Western Canada and enjoy the sites here and BBQ's in our backyard. Or more aptly build a snowman !. Thanks for this opportunity of a lifetime. ♥

    By Natalie Vandenberghe on November 1, 2011 10:04 PM

    If I had a $250 Best Western Travel Card, I would travel to the beautiful Oregon coast! I would be thrilled to give my oldest daughter and her family a $250 gift card to use to enjoy a vacation of their choosing. Thanks for the giveaway.

    By Kirk on November 1, 2011 10:38 PM

    I want to head west to the Mountains at Christmas with a buddy. That way i would have hotels looked after.

    By Bonnie Yee on November 1, 2011 11:24 PM

    I would use the $250 card for a visit to Las Vegas, where I've never been, but hope to visit soon.

    I think I would give a $250 card to my sister to use for a little getaway, as she recently had to move to a new home, so she could use a nice break.

    By bryceton on November 1, 2011 11:35 PM

    I would use it to go on a trip! and id give one to my parents!

    By kent marley on November 1, 2011 11:50 PM

    By Heather Holmberg on November 2, 2011 12:03 AM

    I would use one for me and my daughter for a little girls getaway. She deserves some relaxation.

    As for the gift card, I would give it to my brother who moved to Texas ..we havent seen him in a year - and this would motivate him to drive home and be able to stay a night or two in luxury !

    By JOsh on November 2, 2011 12:16 AM

    My girlfriend and I are taking a trip to Europe in the spring, where I plan on asking her to marry me, so a $250 Best Western gift card would be great to help out with some of the hotel expenses.

    As for the second $250 gift card, I would like to give it to her parents. They are both wonderful people and love to travel, but always seem to be a little strapped for cash, so I know a Best Western gift card of any amount would come in handy on their trip.

    I would take my fiance to Wyoming. He's always told me about his most favorite trip there as a child, and I've always wanted to be able to take him back there.
    The other I would give to my mom, because she loves to go places and travel but just cannot afford to do it very often. This would definitely help!

    By Monica Young on November 2, 2011 1:41 AM

    I'm almost 32 years old and I've NEVER been to Las Vegas and I really really really wanna go for my 32nd birthday. If I were fortunate to win I'd take my best friend Kimberly with me and we'd go and have a girls weekend out.

    I would take my family for a weekend to Frankenmuth Michigan, where it is Christmas all year round. We would visit the small shops, and Bronners, the Christmas store, that is open 361 days a year.
    The other card i would donate to Gifts From the Heart for Downs, a non-profit charity that grants wishes for those with Down Syndrome.

    By kimberly snyder on November 2, 2011 5:24 AM

    Thank You for this opportunity! I'd give the second card to my daughter. She and I would really like to take my grandson and granddaughter to a zoo or aquarium. I would make this a learning adventure for us.

    I would give the other card away to my parents so that they can get away for some R&R.

    By Giant Sis on November 2, 2011 7:58 AM

    I would use my card on my driving trip from Texas to Illinois to see my grandparents! I would give the other one to my aunt and uncle because they travel for business a lot - but they own their own business, so it would be a big help for them!

    By shannon w. on November 2, 2011 8:12 AM

    If I win I'd take my family to a near by beach stay.

    By tracy p. on November 2, 2011 8:41 AM

    I would use the gift card to have a stay at a hotel near a beach. I would git one to my mom so she could come with us.

    By Michelle on November 2, 2011 9:01 AM

    I would use one of the $250 gift cards for part of my week long stay in Paris in February. It would come in very handy but if I had the option I would give both gift cards to my mom

    If I had to use one and give one away then I would still give one to my mom because I hate that when my parents travel they stay in cheap hotels and I want them to feel the personalized feeling I get when I check into a BW. I want them too experience great customer service, yummy buffet breakfasts, and clean rooms.

    By Alex H. on November 2, 2011 9:04 AM

    I would plan a trip for me and my sorority sisters over spring break. After graudation we moved to four states for work! This would help cut costs so we could travel across the country to see eachother!

    By Lyndsey Hart on November 2, 2011 9:32 AM

    I am visiting my grandma in England next year, it will be 5 years since I have seen her and I will need a place of my own to stay.

    The other card I would give to my mom, but I know she would insist that I use it while visiting her mother. I would definitely need to use both cards for about a weeks stay.

    By Bradley B. on November 2, 2011 9:37 AM

    * "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?"

    I'd take my wife away for the weekend to NYC.

    I would use the card to stay at Best Western properties between Denver, CO and Madison, WI on a roadtrip to visit my mom who just got out of ICU last week.

    By Rosey on November 2, 2011 10:06 AM

    I would use mine so we could take a couple of little family trips this winter to dole off the winter blah's. There are some really cool little places not too far from our own home that would be just right for that idea!

    The other one I would give to my parent in-laws for a Christmas present. They travel a LOT, all year round, and this would be the perfect gift for them.

    By Donna B on November 2, 2011 10:07 AM

    I would keep one card and treat my hard working husband on a short trip, hopefully where he can swim in the ocean. I would give the other card to my husband so he could go visit his family.

    By Jeanette H. on November 2, 2011 10:23 AM

    I would use one card for my family to go back to Pigeon Forge, TN.

    By Ragini Raheja on November 2, 2011 2:04 PM

    I would take my husband on a much needed vacation-he has not had a break or a day off for over a year! So a Road trip in the Pacific Northwest and staying on route at BestWesterns would be a most welcome break and a great birthday present!!

    I would give the other one to my brother-in-law so we can finally meet our niece whom we haven't seen in 1.5yrs-considering she is just 2.5yrs!!

    By Saif Almuhairbi on November 2, 2011 2:11 PM

    With the Best Western $250 gift cards I would use it so I can take my girlfriend on a road trip to some places she has never been before. As with the second gift card my best friend is coming home from deployment and I would think it would be amazing if I could surprise him with the gift card so he can take his wife out for a nice trip. He hasn't been home for a while so I think it would make an amazing gift. Honestly I could live without my card as long as he could get one because he truly deserves it. He has always been there for me so I would give him the gift card.

    By Tara O'Leary on November 2, 2011 3:15 PM

    If i won the best western giftcard i would take my husband to the superbowl, as it has always been a lifetime dream of his.

    And if I could gift to anyone else, I would give it to my parents because they always look out for their children and grand children, and deserve to finally treat themselves for once.

    By Sandra S on November 2, 2011 3:53 PM

    I would use the card for a little vacation with hubby.

    The other card I would give to my husband, we have a couple of weeks of vacation time coming up and this would allow us to stay a few more days in the comfort of Best Western! :)

    I would take my husband out for his birthday! :)

    By Ashley Smith on November 2, 2011 8:38 PM

    I am a single mother who works, cuts coupons, and goes to college (not to mention cooking, laundry, cleaning, and teaching a 5yo boy the difference between right and wrong. I dont have any extra money but if I had a gift card I would run away for the weekend... maybe even take my son with me :)

    By Sharon on November 2, 2011 9:29 PM

    By Laurie Rae on November 3, 2011 3:30 AM

    I'd use mine to do something I've always wanted to do--throw a dart at a map of the U.S. and go where ever it lands! I'd give the second to my mother-in-law so she can take a trip to a nice beach. Most of our family visited the Jersey Shore last summer and she was quite excited to go--bought a new beach chair and everything--but work got in the way and she couldn't leave home. She deserves a vacation more than anyone I know.

    By Suzanne on November 3, 2011 3:36 AM

    My family has been planning a roadtrip to Yellowstone National Park for over two years. Last summer we had to cancel the trip at the last minute due to a death in the family, so we're now looking forward to going in 2012. The gift card would be an awesome way for us to save some money and stay at nice BW properties along the way. I would give the other card to a friend who hasn't had a vacation in way too long.

    By Mandy N on November 3, 2011 3:38 AM

    I would take my Mother where ever she wanted to go! I am a college senior and she paid for my education! Thanks to her I have a job out of college. I would love NOTHING more than to make her happy and show her how much she means to me, she is my best friend after all :)

    By Anna F. on November 3, 2011 3:53 AM

    Next one would be for my brother.

    By Jennifer Strickley on November 3, 2011 5:54 AM

    probably go spend a couple of days in Colorado at BEST WESTERN Ptarmigan Lodge in Dillon - have stayed there before - really cozy and great location for skiing and restaurants. Also always great price - oh and did I mention the FABULOUS PET POLICY so my best buddy can come along. The 2nd card goes to my newly retired parents!

    By Mary on November 3, 2011 6:06 AM

    By Leticia A. on November 3, 2011 6:24 AM

    I would use the card to take a mommy & son trip! I am a single mom with a full-time job. I try to spend any time I have with him, but I know that is not enough for him. I would go with him somewhere for a couple of days and let ALL my time be HIS time!

    If I were going to give it away, I would give it away to my parents. When I was a kid, they worked so hard to give me and my 3 sisters everything we needed and some! Mom used to work really early in the morning, and Dad during the night. We used to take vacation time once a year. As they got older, their health started deteriorating and it got to the point where they are both now unemployed. My sisters and I help them out in any way we can, but with each having children of our own, it gets tough at times. I would give them this card for them to take a weekend off to go and just relax! They deserve it!

    By Gord Ma on November 3, 2011 6:30 AM

    Would take my family and the family of my goddaughter out on a trip to the U.S.

    By B dekoker on November 3, 2011 6:56 AM

    I would use one for a little mid winter getaway from the house and give the other to my parents who winter in Florida

    By Mallory Megan on November 3, 2011 7:13 AM

    I would Best Western hop and see the friends and family that you rarely get to see because they are spread all over. It would be hard to give the second card away since I know so many amazing and deserving people!

    By Tricia on November 3, 2011 7:17 AM

    I would take a romantic weekend with my husband to Nashville for our anniversary....

    By Shakti B on November 3, 2011 7:35 AM

    I would use it to stay a few nights up at the Best Western near Timberline on Mt. Hood during Ski Season. It would be a great girls getaway for me and my ski partner.

    I would give the second one to my Ski partner. Last season we went down and spent two nights at The BW Ponderosa Lodge (an excellent BW by the way) in Sisters, Oregon. She paid for both nights as well as for all the gas to get down there. The Best Western kindly provided us with one free ski pass for each night we stayed there. It would be nice to give her the card as a thank you and also in case she decides she wants to do it again this season.

    By Claire on November 3, 2011 8:23 AM


    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?"

    By Val on November 3, 2011 8:47 AM

    I would give both the travel cards to my friend who lives in another state who could use it if she needs to escape from her current place of living that is not safe for her right now. It would buy here some time to figure out what she is going to do before she would have to find another place or go to a homeless shelter.

    By Enrique Marin on November 3, 2011 9:58 AM

    I've been wanting to go to Rome, Italy for quite sometime. I'd use the first travel gift card toward a Best Western accommodation in Italy with my girlfriend. The second card, I'd give it to my sister & her husband, who are avid travelers.

    By Naomi Lindstein on November 3, 2011 10:55 AM

    WOW, I would be so happy to have a gift card to give to my mom. She has had a lot of personal issues lately and I know that she would love just a brief getaway. This would lift her spirits.
    I would take my daughters to see her with my card.

    I would use mine for a trip to see my family in chicago around xmas.

    I would give the other to a co-worker . We work at an dmv in alabama and since the immigration act started a litle over a month ago, we have seen our work increase three-folds. We are the 2nd largest county and have had to deal with budget cuts that have us soooo short handed that this would be like winning a million dollars. To be able to get a weekend of pure relaxation in a wonderful BW would be hitting the jackpot!!!

    By anne on November 4, 2011 4:29 AM

    With two $250 Best Western cards my lady and I would be able to afford a well deserved vacation. Ah, to get away from it all! We need that. We'd visit a new town, explore the area, eat well, take lots of pictures and sleep soundly in an ubercomfy Best Western bed after each fun filled day.

    By Claudia M on November 4, 2011 5:12 AM

    i would use it to surprise my husband with a romantic getaway :)

    the other card i would give to my daughter so she can visit her grandma in FL. she hasn't seen in 3 years

    By Paul on November 4, 2011 7:04 AM

    If I won the $250 Best Western Travel Card, I would use it toward a warm, beachy trip. Here it's only the first week in November and we've already had a snowstorm. This is going to be a tough winter to get through. I will need an escape or I will lose my mind. Nobody wants that!

    My mom deserves the other $250 Best Western Travel Card -- she will NOT treat herself -- and this will force her to do that! TOO BAD, mom! ha

    ;- )

    Traveling and seeing sights on the California Coast from San Diego thru the San Francisco Bay. Unbelievable, Sights that I have only seen in pictures.

    I would give my other card to my husband so that we both can enjoy together these unforgettable memories.

    By Deb Sears on November 4, 2011 7:43 AM

    I would use it to visit New York.

    I would gift this to my sisters so they could join me in New York for a girls weekend!

    By Dale Fish on November 4, 2011 7:43 AM

    I would use it to take my bride "somewhere" for a "honeymoon", since we lost our jobs after we got married 2 years ago!

    By katie klein on November 4, 2011 7:44 AM

    I would use it so my husband and I could visit his family (especially his mom) and show off our family our 2 year old son Christopher and our newest addition Nicholas. Both of which his family has yet to meet in erson. I would also give the other card to my best friend so she could take her first vacation ever!

    By Dale Fish on November 4, 2011 7:45 AM

    The other, I would give to my brother in law, who has pancreatic cancer.

    By Paul on November 4, 2011 7:47 AM

    If I won the $250 Best Western Travel Card, I would use it toward a warm, beachy trip. Here it's only the first week in November and we've already had a snowstorm. This is going to be a tough winter to get through. I will need an escape or I will lose my mind. Nobody wants that!

    My mom deserves the other $250 Best Western Travel Card -- she will NOT treat herself -- and this will force her to do that! TOO BAD, mom! ha

    ;- )

    By Sara on November 4, 2011 7:51 AM

    I would use mine on my cross-country trip to Denver! I'm moving in a few weeks and having the hotels paid for would be a huge help!

    I'd give the other one to my mom. She and her boyfriend just broke up and they own a giant house together. Neither can move out til they sell it, and I'm sure she would like some time away every once in a while...

    By Amyc on November 4, 2011 8:03 AM

    I would use the gift card to stay a nice Best Western in NYC in the financial district I stayed in back in 1998- I have friends that live in NYC I haven't visited in ages! I would give the gift card to my friend Linda who just got married, but didn't get to take a honeymoon because they blew their whole budget on the reception! She's a fun person and deserves a little getaway with her new hubby!

    By sylvia shaw on November 4, 2011 8:27 AM

    I would use the card to visit my son in Vancouver and would give the other card to my neighbour who is such a good friend to me

    By Adam Vender on November 4, 2011 9:09 AM

    I would use the gift card to get a hotel in LA for the E3 expo.

    I would give my friend one so they can go with me to E3 since they normally can't afford it :-)

    By Lori Hinck on November 4, 2011 9:14 AM

    I would take my husband and son outta town for the first time together in 7 years.. With 2 heartattacks, pacemaker and the loss of three dad's behind us in the last 3 years we DESERVE it.. The second gift I would donate to someone for christmas so they too can have a vacation..thank you

    By strawbarigurl on November 4, 2011 9:25 AM

    By Dawn R on November 4, 2011 9:31 AM

    My family recently stayed in Boston at the Roundhouse Suites; we were visiting colleges.We have to go back for auditions,and the card would be gratefully used at Roundhouse,again! I would gift the second card to my recently married son; he and his wife have some family losses and could really use a little respite! Thanks fof the opportunity at winning!

    By Laura Talbert on November 4, 2011 9:46 AM

    I would use both cards to take myself and my partner to a business convention in Philadelphia to help further our small business and help keep our dream alive! That's honesty...

    By Tory Patrick on November 4, 2011 9:59 AM

    I would used the $250 Best Western Travel Card to travel to the Midwest this holiday season. With a new baby on the way, we have lots of family and friends to visit in Illinois and Indiana.

    I would give the $250 Best Westen Travel Card to my sister and brother-in-law so they can travel out to DC this Spring for a visit...and to help change diapers, of course! :)

    By stephanie on November 4, 2011 10:24 AM

    I would give one to my husband's family, so they could all take a road trip to visit us and see our home for the first time. We would use ours to have a much-needed romantic getaway to the Hudson River Valley, which we have been dreaming about!

    By Kelsey on November 4, 2011 10:42 AM

    I would use the first card to help with expenses to visit our new niece who was born in Chicago 11/1/2011.

    The second card I would give to my Dad so that he could come visit us in Indiana since he lives in Virginia. He hasn't been able to visit for a while and has never met my youngest, who is 8 months old.

    By Greg M on November 4, 2011 10:54 AM

    I would use my card for a stay in Seattle.

    I would send the other to my best friend in Portland as we only see each other once a year. Meeting half way in the Winter would be a great Christmas present.

    By Leah Brown on November 4, 2011 11:00 AM

    We have a trip coming up starting in Seattle, WA and then onto Tampa, Florida! We would use the gift card towards our hotels in both of these cities! The 2nd one, I would gift to my parents, they have done so much for me over the years, that it always feels good to give back!!!!

    By Angel on November 4, 2011 11:09 AM

    I would use it for a nice weekend getaway for my husband & myself. The other card I would give to my Mom who deserves her won getaway. Thanks!

    By Andrea D. F. on November 4, 2011 11:20 AM

    I would give the card to my husband, so that he and I could head south to California for a few weeks to catch some sunshine during the cold, dark Canadian winter! :)

    By Sarah on November 4, 2011 11:22 AM

    I would use the gift card to book a room near my in-laws house so we could all visit happily (with a little extra space for our 3 year old) over Christmas break.

    I'd give the giftcard to my mom so she could use it to visit her family.

    By Colleen on November 4, 2011 11:27 AM

    My family would enjoy the chance for a nice getaway. We would use the card for a trip to Orlando to visit Disney - we are all Disney fans! The second card I would give to my sister and her husband for their help and generosity during a recent family crisis.

    By Amy W on November 4, 2011 11:59 AM

    I would use that gift card for when I go to New York next year with my mom, hotels there can be so very expensive so every little bit can help! But also a part of me wants to use it just as a small little vaca just to get out of the house. Sometimes the best part of a vacation is just not being at home is it might be nice to get away for a few days and pamper myself at your hotel! ^_^

    I would give the other card to my mother-in-law. As much as I would love for her to stay with me there are reasons why people put mother-in-laws in hotels. Need I say more? (But I do love her so, just not under my roof in my kitchen :) )

    By Robyn Lee on November 4, 2011 12:03 PM

    I would use the card to stay in Edmonton at the Best Western for the night or two when I go
    to see my BFF whom I haven't seen in app. 18 yrs. She doesn't have an extra bed
    and people can't stay over night where she lives.

    Hubby would get the other card so he could come along and enjoy our visit.

    By S Van Aert on November 4, 2011 12:22 PM

    I would use one for my family stay at the Best Western in Penticton, BC. We stay there every May long weekend to celebrate my grandmother's birthday (she is 94!) and my boys love being able to make their own waffles with the continental breakfast that is included! The other I would give to a family member or friend who is going through a rough time and deserves a "break."

    By Tracy Pickens on November 4, 2011 1:06 PM

    I would use this card to go home for the holidays. My parents live in Florida and I live in Missouri. My husband was out of work for almost two years and I have been supporting a family of four on my salary. I need a vacation. Even though my husband is now employed money is still tight and we don't know if we can afford to go see my parents. I haven't seen my parents all year and I miss them a lot. I would love to win this card so I could visit them for the holidays. I would really help.

    By Barbie Davis on November 4, 2011 4:24 PM

    I would give the card to my husband...his birthday is coming up next month and he has always wanted to go to Gatlinburg in December for his birthday! He works fire/EMS and is always giving to others so I would love to be able to give him somthing that he has always wanted. If I had a card myself I would love to go to Florida and visit my grandpa. I haven't seen him in 2 years.

    By Rick M. on November 4, 2011 5:56 PM

    I would use my Best Western gift card for a NASCAR weekend getaway to the Daytona 500, about 15 mintues from the Daytona Beach Best Western (yes, I am already planning the trip.


    I would use the other card for my brother and his children to stay at the Best Western Sterling Inn when they travel to Michigan. This place is awesome!!! Besides having thier own year-round indoor water park and 42" widescreen TV's in every room, they also have thier own generator to keep the place up and running during a power outage. During the 2003 black out, they provided support for the first responders and others that needed support (such as meals) during that unusual event. Anyway, this place is so nice that my relatives would rather stay at the Best Western Sterling Inn instead of my home.

    By Allison Lancaster on November 4, 2011 5:56 PM

    I would use it for the holidays to see family that lives 8 hours away.

    I would give the gift card to my sister, so she could go see her boyfriend when he gets back to the United States from Afghanistan.

    By ROXANN on November 4, 2011 7:17 PM

    I would use my card for a special get-away with my husband. I would surprise my son and daughter with the 2nd card so they could have a night away in the mountains with the loved ones in their lives.

    By Jason on November 4, 2011 8:04 PM

    I would use the card myself and give the other one to my girlfriend to combine for a longer stay for the Christmas holidays. My girlfriend won an extra two days off in a selling promotion at her work so I want to make sure we can stay near her families for as much of XMAS as possible. This would be PERFECT! :)

    Thanks

    By suzanne anctil on November 4, 2011 10:54 PM

    with the gift card for works of mercy per DivineMercyGodJesusSaveUsITrustinyou! the cry of the poor ..I would shelter during a snow storm and no shelter out in the country with the help of my catholic parish would bring the homeless single or family living in their car at least one night or two with the gift card in shelter so they won't die in the snow storm...with the help of God and mother mary queen of peace in medjugorje,bosnia were miracles happen everyday best place to visit and be and move too!

    By Karen on November 5, 2011 1:04 AM

    I would use the card to go on vacation in Hawaii and give the other one to my sister to use too!

    By Gail on November 5, 2011 1:17 AM

    I would use the card for me and my husband to take a weekend trip together!!
    I would use the 2nd card to give to my sister for her to get away for a weekend. Thanks so much for the opportunity to go somewhere!!

    By C.I on November 5, 2011 1:18 AM

    i would use the card and go see a rock concert in NY.

    i would give the card to whoever wants to come with me.

    By Julie Cowart on November 5, 2011 1:21 AM

    I would use one to take a trip to the Oregon Coast with hubby

    The second one I would give to my friend Ana Ro. She works so hard and cares for her family and deserves a few nights doing something fun!

    By Eryn on November 5, 2011 1:24 AM

    I'd put it towards our first trip to Disney World that we're all working hard to make happen in 2012! Even the kids are involved in the saving, all eyes are on the prize!

    I'd give one to my cousin who just lost her dad this summer. She deserves a weekend away after a long two years of taking care of her dad.

    By Diane Devine on November 5, 2011 1:25 AM

    I would use the card to be able to go visit my parents for the Holidays. I haven't seen them since last Christmas. I really miss them. My husband has been unemployed a few months this year, so money is very tight.

    I would give he second card to my children. We have had to move to a different state then they are in for my husband to find employment. They could come for a visit!!

    By Jeff Y on November 5, 2011 2:01 AM

    I would use the travel card for our 10 year anniversary. We have been thru an incredibly rough 10 years of marriage including losing our 6 yo daughter to a degenerative brain disorder. We haven't had much of a chance to do any traveling and $250 would go a long way to helping us enjoy a 2nd honeymoon.

    I would give the 2nd travel card to an amazing organization called the "See Ya Later Foundation" that comes alongside and blesses families that have gone through a medical crisis. I know for a fact that they would find the right family to bless with a $250 travel card.

    By Lois Patterson on November 5, 2011 3:19 AM

    1) For me, I'd use it for a nice weekend in Seattle. Both the Best Western Executive Inn and the Best Western Loyal Inn are nicely placed.
    2) I'd give the other card to my daughter so she could have a nice weekend away. I bet she'd use it for Seattle too!

    By Dorothea on November 5, 2011 3:24 AM

    I would use my card to take myself and my family to NYC for my niece's wedding. I would give the other card to my best friend who took me to New Orleans this summer and paid my room and board, she's a great friend and deserves it.

    By Lorenzo on November 5, 2011 3:38 AM

    My wife and I are expecting our first born soon and we live hundreds of miles away from some of her family, thousands of miles away from my family. These gift cards would allow us to have guests come up and have a place to sleep at on the way here, the way back, and...if there are a lot of people here at once...they can find a great Best Western locally to sleep at here while they visit the baby.

    By Laura Collins on November 5, 2011 5:17 AM

    I would use it tto get a room in case we have a HURRICANe. I would give the other one to my son.

    By Katie Stefan on November 5, 2011 5:57 AM

    If I won, I would definately use the card on any trips taken to see my favorite band of all time!!! New Kids on the Block!! I travel quite abit to go to their concerts. And a card from Best Western would come in handy!!!

    The second card, I would give to my bestie, Leeja!!! She is like a true sister to me and does so much for others. And this would greatly help her in her trips to see NKOTB too!!

    By Lisa McCoy on November 5, 2011 7:09 AM

    I would use it to go to NYC to see Daniel Radcliffe in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. I would then share the other gift card with my Godchildren so that they could go on a trip. They are a family of 6 - so it isn't very easy or cheap for them to go do things!

    By Elizabeth Ellis on November 5, 2011 7:16 AM

    I would use the gift card to take my husband on a much needed weekend getaway...we're first-time parents! A quiet room with a comfortable bed sounds like heaven!

    I'd give the other card to my inlaws, who live in a small town four hours away from Portland, and I'd like them to come visit their grandchild for a long weekend.

    By Lisa Carr on November 5, 2011 8:56 AM

    I would use the gift card to spend a weekend at the beach with my family. I would give the second card to my sister so she and her family could come with us.

    By Tonya on November 5, 2011 9:35 AM

    I'd use the gift certificate to treat my hard working husband to a weekend away to the Catskill Mountains. The other I'd give to my parents so they could get away.

    By Justin on November 5, 2011 2:29 PM

    My fiancee has been wanting to visit New York for a long time. I'd love to be able to take her there, staying at the Best Western Plus Seaport Inn so we can be near the water but also right in Manhattan.

    My gift would be to my grandparents, so they can visit relatives in Allen park, MI, which they don't get to do often enough. they could stay conveniently at the Best Western Greenfield Inn.

    By Margaret Imecs on November 5, 2011 3:21 PM

    I would use it for a nice trip in Ontario and I would give it to my parents it would be a nice treat for them.
    Thanks for the amazing contest! :)

    By Doris Calvert on November 5, 2011 3:36 PM

    I would love to go to Banff, AB where I have stayed numerous times and the bonus is you allow pets! I will choose the mountain parks over a US destination anytime, to me it's gods country! I would give the other card to my sister we never get to go together to often, so this would be perfect and maybe just what I need.

    Thanks so much:)

    By shannon logelin on November 5, 2011 3:38 PM

    I would use it to go back home for my brothers wedding. And i would give the other one to the one that i would think could use it the most.

    By Michael Wright on November 5, 2011 3:39 PM

    I would use it to go and visit my Brothers Gravesite and stay at Best western on the way and once I got there.

    I would give it as a gift to my sister so that she could go and visit our brothers gravesite.

    By Melanie on November 5, 2011 3:39 PM

    I would use the gift card to take my mom on a trip. My mom recently went through a divorce from my dad after 33 years, and had to undergo radiation treatments for breast cancer so she deserves it!

    I would also give my mom the gift card so she could take use it if she wanted to go somewhere on her own.

    By kenneth horn on November 5, 2011 3:40 PM

    By teresa on November 5, 2011 3:41 PM

    well I would spend it to celebrate my 14th anniversary. me and my husband never go anywhere as we cant ever afford it. It would be nice to do something just me and him for a change. Thanks

    I would give the card to my mother in law and father in law as their grand daughter just stole their checkbook and spent all the money that was in their account so i think they would enjoy to visit family out of state

    By Christina R Chastain on November 5, 2011 3:41 PM

    I am a stay at home mother of 4. As we continue dealing with a very serious illness, we decided to do as many memorable family vacations. We are trying to go to visit our family in Atlanta at Christmas time. I would use this gift card to stay in a safe and comfortable hotel while we are there.

    With the other gift card, I would give it to one of my friends who has a daughter going for surgery at Hershey Medical Center. It would give them a worry free trip during a critical time.

    By elisha ransom on November 5, 2011 3:41 PM

    By GREG BOSCH on November 5, 2011 3:46 PM

    I would give the other $250 card to my parents seeing they travel five months out of the year this would be a nice break to stay in a hotel / motel .

    By Linda Stooksbury on November 5, 2011 3:47 PM

    I would use it to show my kids the ocean! My oldest is 14 (15 this month) and my youngest is 9. They ask all the time when they will get the chance to see the ocean. It may not seem like much, but to them it would be very special. For a family on a budget, it would be appreciated by us all. And the memory of seeing my kids first time at the ocean, the sight, the sounds, the smells, etc would just be wonderful.

    The second card I would give to my cousin who could use it to spend some quality time with her family when her husband gets home from Iraq/Kuwait. They also have kids and a limited budget, so this would be a godsend for them as well.

    By laura akers on November 5, 2011 3:47 PM

    I would use mine when I help out the Milwaukee Iron wheelchair rugby team in which I am a volunteer for on one of our many distant road trips. I would give the other one to the team to help pay for another team member since the team is a non profit organization and each of the team members has many other costs to be worried about.

    By shannon buchanan on November 5, 2011 3:48 PM

    i plan on making a trip to the states and it would come in handy to use towards some stays at best westerns.

    i would give the other one to my mom who is sick and she would like to visit florida some place she has never been the best mom in the world

    By David Fonger on November 5, 2011 3:48 PM

    I was use the card for my wife and I, I am a teacher in the remote northern part of Alaska, she is in Wisconsin, we would use it for a weekend together. We only see each other in the summer and over Christmas break. (26 years married though =D )
    The travel card would be donated to a veteran's organization (Wounded Warriors or another organization that helps the families of Veterans)

    By Bernice Fortune on November 5, 2011 3:48 PM

    I would take my daughter to the Best Western Chocolate Lake. We could spend a mother-daughter weekend & she would get to meet Cocoa (who I had the pleasure of meeting on our last visit). I would give the other card to my friend so she and her husband could spend a night there when she picks him up from the airport for Christmas. He only gets home twice a year so it would be a nice chance for them to be alone.

    By Michelle on November 5, 2011 3:48 PM

    I just got a new job away from my family during the week. I would use it for a nice weekend getaway for us!

    I would give the other to my parents because they mean the world to me!!!!

    By Paula Gillespie on November 5, 2011 3:49 PM

    First of all, if I was lucky enough to win a $250 gift card for myself I would probably use it one of two ways. My husband and I have never had a honeymoon and we have been together for over 16 years and married for 12 years. I would maybe plan a get together for us by ourselves or I would use it to take my family on a vacation which we have never had either. My daughter is 8 years old and we have never been on a family vacation either with all of us together. So I have two great ways to use it. And if I won another one to give away I would have to share it with my mom. She is selfless and always thinks of me and my family in every way she can so being able to give back to her someway would be fantastic. She never goes anywhere either and this would give her a great reason to get away and relax.

    By Tracy T on November 5, 2011 3:49 PM

    If given a travel card, it would be used to visit the Branson area for Christmas......I have a 7 year old boy, and he needs to see and remember the importance of Christmas and the totally see the spirit of the year. Being a single parent, it is sometimes hard to give him the memories he needs.

    I would give my mother a travel card, she has helped us in so many ways, she might enjoy a trip to Branson also. A way to give back in a different way than money itself.

    By Adam on November 5, 2011 3:49 PM

    I would give the gift card to my parents so they can have a nice vacation; my mom and dad both work for a local school district, and they have to deal with kids every weekday(minus holidays and weekends) who misbehave and are rotten.

    Plus my folks both have to work with real dumb teachers, who probably need a lot of training, because they aren't very good at what they do, and don't help either my dad or mom out that much(mom and dad aren't teachers themselves, they are assistants, or paras).

    I would use the gift card to take both mom and dad on a nice vacation, maybe a few days on the Washington Coast, or in the Everett area of Washington, or near Mount Vernon, Washington.

    With our finances though, we'll be lucky if we can afford groceries the next time we have to get them. Plus so many people keep wanting their money, from car insurance people to our TV, Phone and Internet provider, to our insurance company, etc.

    It's gotten so bad, that August of this year was the first time we had gone out of town for more then one day since August of Last Year. I don't mean to complain about what other people are going through, because we do have a roof over our head, electricity, food and clothes, but who knows for how long that will be the case if things don't get better.

    All those reasons are why we seriously need the gift cards. Just to spend a few days out of town to forget about our troubles for at least a few days.

    By Michaela Tratos on November 5, 2011 3:50 PM

    I would use it to go see my specialist in California! Hotels are so expensive in that area, and I always stay at Best Western! It would be such a blessing to get a gift card! The one I would give away would be to my best friend, so she could have the girls weekend we keep talking about but never have the money for!

    By Ruby on November 5, 2011 3:50 PM

    I would take my husband on a romantic weekend away for our 25th anniversay.
    Our friends - Rick and Shannon celebrate 30 years so they could sure use a getaway as well.

    By Lyn Roberts on November 5, 2011 3:51 PM

    go to the downtown area of San Antonio, and the other one would be for my daughter and grandkids to come along too.

    By Susan Stahley on November 5, 2011 3:52 PM

    I would use my $250 Best Western Gift Card at Hyannis, Massachusetts for a Cape Cod vacation. I would give the other $250 to my twin sister so she could go on a vacation.

    By Kathleen on November 5, 2011 3:52 PM

    I would love to win the Best Western card to take my family to beautiful Monterey California. There is a beautiful Best Western right on the beach and I could see my grand children playing on the beach and building sand castles, I have a large family, so I would use the second card to make sure we have enough rooms for everyone.

    By wendy on November 5, 2011 3:54 PM

    i would go to monterey, ca with the card, my husband and i had to miss our annual trip to monterey this year.

    i would give the card to my grandparents because they never go anywhere because they are to busy helping the rest of the family.

    By ROBERT CURTIS on November 5, 2011 3:54 PM

    if i were to win the gift card i would use it to see my brother.i only see him a couple of times a yers so it would be great to be able to afford to go to see him by air.i am disabled and rideing in a car can be vary painfull. if i were to win a gift card to give to someone i would give it to my mom. so is 72 years old and cant drive to see me and i am disabled so it is hard to drive to see her.

    By Tina B. on November 5, 2011 3:54 PM

    I would be able to take a much needed vacation and I would give the other card to my friend to enjoy with her fiancee when he gets back from serving duty in Iraq.

    By Karen on November 5, 2011 3:56 PM

    I am a High School band and color guard mom. Our color guard and band travel. with the budgets as tight as they are, I would use my card to help pay for rooms so the color guard can go to competition this year. I would give the other card to them to help as well. Supporting a music program so kids have something positive in high school to keep them on the right track is important. I want these kids to be able to go to competition this year. Thanks!!!!

    By Michael Buckland on November 5, 2011 3:56 PM

    I would use mine to stay with my family across the street from Disneyland for a few nights and make good use our annual passes.

    I would give the other to my friend and her son to come stay in the room next to us and spend time at Disneyland with us.

    By Nancy H on November 5, 2011 3:57 PM

    I would use the first card to stay at a Best Western on our first night of our retirement!

    I would give the second card to someone who cannot afford to stay at a hotel. Preferably an elderly couple who can still drive but cannot afford to stay at a hotel to see family at Christmas

    By charlotte chamberlain on November 5, 2011 3:59 PM

    I live on an island and have to travel to the city for christmas shopping it would be nice to stay in a nice place can't afford other wise. And I would give the other one to someone special that also can't afford it thank you

    By Tina on November 5, 2011 4:00 PM

    Both of my children are recently married and now living miles,and miles away. My husband and I miss them so much. This year they won't be able to come home for any of the holidays. I would use one card for my husband and I. Then give my son the other card we could all meet at the half way point which is my daughter's state. It would really cheer up all of us to be together at some point.this coming winter. Best Western hotels are always are nice place to stay.

    By Nancy Hartwell on November 5, 2011 4:01 PM

    I have a 16 year old son with brain cancer. I would use the card so that both his father and I could be there when he goes for chemo about an hour and a half from where we live.

    The extra card I would give to my mother. She lost my Dad last year, found out that she had stage for lung cancer in January and now struggles to make ends meet. She could use this to do a little traveling while she is still healthy enough to go.

    By lynne M on November 5, 2011 4:02 PM

    Wow, first i am sure that I would take the love of my life with me and we would ride his motorcycle. For me it doesn't really matter where I go just that I am with him. I know he keeps dreaming about a trip on his bike from Washington State to Colorado. So I guess if after 32+ years of marriage if he would like to go that is where our adventure would begin.
    The person I would give the other card to is my best friend from high school, Stephanie R., who deserves a vacation for herself, this card would give her some needed relaxation and maybe just maybe she would drive up to Washington from Northern California to visit us...I can DREAM.

    By Jennifer Johnson on November 5, 2011 4:04 PM

    My sister and I are wanting to take a girls trip out west next year so I would use it for our travels there.

    I would give one to my son so he could use it for a trip....he keeps saying he never gets to go anywhere.

    By sharon on November 5, 2011 4:05 PM

    I would use the gift card towards a hotel stay at the Best western in Orlando Fla and surprise my two boys with a winter vacation.
    I would give the other gift card to my best friend to come along with us and relax while she recovers from breast cancer and treatment.

    By Angie on November 5, 2011 4:06 PM

    To the beach baby and I would love to see my niece in Orlando who is about to have her first baby. I would give the other to my son and daughter in law to go along so he could see his favorite cousin he hasn't seen in 6 years. Thank you for the opportunity.

    By Dawn Bertilson on November 5, 2011 4:06 PM

    A $250 Best Western Gift Card would allow my hubby and I to go visit our son and daughter in law and grandpuppy who moved to Camarillo, CA this year. Miss them a bunch and warmer weather and a walk on a sandy beach wouldn't hurt either.
    A $250 Best Western Gift Card to pass along to my other son and daughter in law, would allow them to go along with us.

    By crystal stephens on November 5, 2011 4:09 PM

    i would take a romantic trip with my husband and not tell him where we were going till we were there .;)
    and i would give the other card to someone random and surprise them and make their day :)

    By Vinay on November 5, 2011 4:10 PM

    This BW travel card would be perfect for my upcoming road trip to Capital of United States, Washington D.C. A stay at Best Western and a walk around the national mall would be just perfect.

    I would give the other card to my boss. He has never experienced stay in Best western and this would give him an opportunity to stay and appreciate a best western experience.

    By Sheryl B on November 5, 2011 4:10 PM

    If I had a $250 gift card I would use it for Thanksgiving. My birthday falls on that day as well so I would stay for a couple of days at Best Western and pamper myself.

    If I had a gift card to give to someone I would give it to a friend so they could come visit me and would have a nice place to stay while doing it.

    By Ellen Allard on November 5, 2011 4:10 PM

    Of course I would use it when I go to New Orleans next May. We have been there before, the same year Katrina was. Now I would spend it on more of those fantastic donuts, which I can't spell, that are best from there. Anything left over would be used in N.H./ Me. for our annual trip that to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

    By Eva D on November 5, 2011 4:11 PM

    I would keep it and would use it for myself for a weekend away when I am feeling like I need a mini vacation to rejuvenate myself and my best friend

    By Gale Bandsma on November 5, 2011 4:12 PM

    I would head east to see my new grand baby, so I could deliver the other card to that they could see me. It woudl be perfect!

    By Joyce Jackson on November 5, 2011 4:13 PM

    I'd use the 1st card to take my mom on a trip to Hawaii. I remember when I was about 5 years old she promised me she'd take me to Hawaii. Well, I'm 32 now and we still haven't went. I always tell her she owes me a trip to Hawaii, and she just laughs. She can't believe I still remember! The 2nd I'd give to my best friend. He's in the Army and travels all over the country teaching. Sometimes he has to use his own money to cover his expenses. He's been an AWESOME friend to me and I'd love to pay him back.

    By Mrs Patti Telfer on November 5, 2011 4:13 PM

    Gosh no competition with this one (Sorry about the pun) but I would use it for our trip to Scotland next year and go to the best Best Western I have ever been too. A small little town called Glenrothes. The Balgeddie House was so good that I cannot wait to go there again. So beautiful and the staff were amazing and so helpful. It was my first trip to Scotland and it was the accommodation of Best Western that made the fantastic holiday that it was. I now do not stay in any other motel. Would drive a bit further to make sure I found a Best Western.

    By Karen H on November 5, 2011 4:14 PM

    I would use the BW $250 card to travel to the different places in the USA while on the motorcycle. We find the BW to be the most motorcycle friendly hotel chain.

    I would give the other one to my cousin so that they could travel with us on their motorcycles too. It is a great way to see the USA.

    By herb on November 5, 2011 4:14 PM

    I would use the card to visit my sister who lives 12 hours away. I would give her the other card so she could visit us.

    By Chantal Crete on November 5, 2011 4:16 PM

    I would take advantage of my Best Western card to take a few days off with my daughter to go shopping in NewYork.

    I would likely give the 250$ Best Western Gift card to my son to compensate for my shopping spree with my daughter! (LOL)

    By robert jones on November 5, 2011 4:16 PM

    i we would use the card to travel to syracuse ny to watch our grandson and his high school team go for a state title in class d on thanksgiving weekend at the dome

    By Johna DeRosier on November 5, 2011 4:18 PM

    If I won the $250.00 Best Western card, I would fly to California and stay at my all time favorite hotel in Pacifica Ca, I would give the other to my best friend and she would join me there. I lived in CA all my life (40 plus years) and recently moved to the South, My friend and I used to go to Pacifica 3-4 times a year. Since I have moved in 2009, i haven't seen her and i really miss her.
    Thanks for the chance

    By Patrick S on November 5, 2011 4:18 PM

    I would use the card for a weekend away in the Canadian Rockies staying at the BW Pocaterra Inn. Great scenery, a great BW hotel (with a waterslide for the kids) and in room fireplaces!

    I would give the other card to my brother in law as he and his family would join us for the fun.

    By Angela Schuts on November 5, 2011 4:18 PM

    I would give my 70 yr old mother the gift card so she could come visit .. She says visiting is like fish after 4 days it begins to stink..

    By david evans on November 5, 2011 4:19 PM

    i would use it to travel and see this land of ours and knowing i or we can get a great night rest at BW, and give the other to my wife (honest),so we can have twice as much fun !

    By Nebraskat on November 5, 2011 4:19 PM

    I live in Nebraska and my best friend lives in Pittsburgh. It's very difficult to get schedules to match up. Tickets would be a BIG. help!!!!

    By Johna DeRosier on November 5, 2011 4:19 PM

    Thanks for the chance

    By Eleanor Higdon on November 5, 2011 4:23 PM

    If I won two Best Western Travel Cards, I would give one to my best friend, and I would keep one. We seniors still have a lot of "travel" in us, and we could go on a trip to see our grown "kids." Along the way we would make a few side trips such as to Savanna, GA and Charleston, SC. We might even hit the Outer Banks of NC. We would visit many places we have never seen, and we would "visit" the entire trip covering many topics we have never discussed! Of course, we would stay at BEST WESTERNS every night along the way. What a great trip we would have! We seniors not only have a lot of "travel" left in us, but we also have a lot of life! "Win" is the operative word here for us! Fingers are crossed! Thanks for the opportunity to enter, Best Western!

    By joyious ovens on November 5, 2011 4:23 PM

    I would use it, to get away from the construction go ing on in my bathroom.What an in convenience,no water in the sink,or shower. Taking longer than we thought. Oh well tomorrow is another day' I would give my Husband the other card. THANK--YOU.xxx

    By CARRIE on November 5, 2011 4:24 PM

    I would take my mom on a weekend get away.She really needs it.

    By Judy on November 5, 2011 4:24 PM

    If I won the $250 contest....I would use one $250 gift card next year to attend a nearby school of prophecy (and stay in the city overnight since it's a 2 day class).

    The other $250 I would use to help a friend of mine, her sister and their kids get a nice hotel here in Ohio next year, so we call could visit together. (Or maybe combine the $250 cards for a full week for them to stay here).

    By DON TIDD on November 5, 2011 4:25 PM

    I would use mine to take my wife to see her family in Idaho and Utah. I'd send the other to my brother in Colorado so he could drive out here to WA to see our mother and other family.

    By Debra B on November 5, 2011 4:26 PM

    I would use mine to travel home to see my folks and stay at the Best Western there. I would gift the other one to my daughter who has to take many trips for hockey tournaments with her son.

    By Renee brumley on November 5, 2011 4:28 PM

    Head to Branson, Missouri. In a heartbeat

    By dattac on November 5, 2011 4:28 PM

    I would like to travel to the Caribbean island if I get it.
    I want to give other one to my best friend in Paris.

    By Kyra Gorski on November 5, 2011 4:28 PM

    My boyfriend and I could finally afford a road trip to visit his family in Kentucky, the BW gift card would take a lot of stress off our pocketbooks.

    I would give the other card to my Dad as he was also going to take a road trip, but to California, and to save money he was going to drive 14 hours straight. I would feel more comfortable if he took a break at a nice and comfy Best Western.

    By sharon miller on November 5, 2011 4:30 PM

    I would use a Best Western card to take my Best Friend( my 14 year old son) to Ocean City NJ.I enjoyed as a child but as a single mom,I have never been able to afford to take him. As for sharing,I would give it to my brother and his wife that have helped me so much over the years.

    By pam outzen on November 5, 2011 4:30 PM

    1. my daughter and SIL live 1,000 miles away.... :( we like to do the trip in 2 days, but can hardly afford to stay out a night.. this $250 card would help, could maybe squeeze out 3 nights
    2. i would give other card to my sister, hard life, she could use a break

    By Eleanor on November 5, 2011 4:31 PM

    We're taking a trip south and I would use it then.

    I'd give the other card to my daughter so she could enjoy some time away from home too.

    By LindaMS on November 5, 2011 4:31 PM

    If I won the Best Western Card I would go on a cozy, relaxing, much needed long weekend break, somewhere where you can take a breath of fresh air & feel your worries melt away... :)


    I would give the other card to my best friend Robin so she could get away and have some fun- she is caring for her Mom w/ Alz and desperately needs some "refreshing" of mind & body.

    Thank you, L

    By Lorraine Ouimet on November 5, 2011 4:32 PM

    We travel to Florida every year. It's a two overnight stay for us to get to our destination from where we live in Ontario Canada. At our age, we are finding the long hours on the road getting more and more taxing every year. With an extra $250, we could take our time and stay at various Best Westerns on our way down and be able to spend time visiting some of the interesting spots on our route, and not be so tired when we reach our destintion in Florida.

    I would give the other gift card to my daughter who spend enormous amounts of money on hotel accommodation as she has two sons who play rep hockey and are always travelling to various tournaments in Ontario and the States.

    By crystal pierce on November 5, 2011 4:35 PM

    If I were to win the $250 gift card I would take my 3 year old daughter to Disneyland in California! She has been asking me to see Disneyland for the past 6 months. She would love to see them!!
    I would give the $250 to my parents who assist me so much with my daughter. Every time I need someone to watch my daughter my parents always will take her. My parents have done so much for me & this would be an awesome thank you gift.

    By Rebecca Runge on November 5, 2011 4:35 PM

    I would use the travel card to go visit my family for the holidays. Family should be at the top of everyones list, and I would give the second card to "Ava's Gift to June, Inc" to help those families who have to travel to battle childhood cancers. I help with fundraisers for childhood cancers and they need our support!

    By EWART QUICK on November 5, 2011 4:37 PM

    A 250 dollar Best Western gift card would be a blessing to our family and would allow me to take my family to the great smokey mountains this winter! I travel for work and rarely get to spend time with them. And the second card i would give to my co worker so he could enjoy some time with his family also!!

    By kathy on November 5, 2011 4:40 PM

    By teri carpenter on November 5, 2011 4:40 PM

    We are going to drive from So Cal to Washington State next summer. This card would be a big a big help.

    The second card would be so our dog can travel with us, as there always extra charges whenever she goes with us.

    By Monica L on November 5, 2011 4:40 PM

    I would go to Oahu, stay at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Coconut Waikiki Hotel! Would be amazing to see Oahu. I'd give the travel card to my sister so we could stay as long as possible in HAWAII! ~Mahalo~

    By Toni Roehlke on November 5, 2011 4:44 PM

    I would give the card to my parents. My mom recently got laid off, and they haven't had a vacation in years!

    I would use the card to take my daughters out for some fun! Last time we went to a hotel, my eldest had a broken arm and couldn't go swimming, and she was very sad about that. I know they would love to get out of the MN cold this winter for a few days of swimming at an indoor pool!

    By Sharon on November 5, 2011 4:46 PM

    I became disabled a couple of years ago & have not been able to afford a vacation since. I would use the card to have a nice little vacation, and share the other with a disabled friend so she could join me.

    By Werdon W Morris on November 5, 2011 4:47 PM

    First of all, I would take the family down the street, food shopping for the up coming two holidays. The head of the household, is now the mother and she is struggling to make ends meet. Even if I do not win this contest, I will still take this family shopping with my Social Security disability. It's not much, but I am blessed with my little family.
    Then if there is any left over, I shall take my family to Best Western in Roseville, Michigan and stay a night or two, to enjoy there hot tub. I am a disabled veteran, and the heat feels so good on my legs and back.
    Thank you for letting me express myself in this blog!

    By christina oconnor on November 5, 2011 4:47 PM

    I would go out of state and visit family I have not seen in a long time and a much needed vacation.

    I would give the 2nd one to my sisters family and hope they will go with us.

    By Susan Defoe on November 5, 2011 4:50 PM

    My daughter just got back custody of her two young sons ( had to fight tooth and nail against CPS) WE WON FINALLY! I would love to take my grandsons to the beach for a fun filled ...loving vacation... They have never gotten to take a trip like this.
    The 2nd card I would give to my boyfriend Kevin. He has been my pillar of strength thru this all ...has not had time or money to treat himself and I would love to do something for him

    By Nina F on November 5, 2011 4:53 PM

    I would use the $250 travel card at the Best Western Plus closest to the beach! And I would give the other card to my brother because he never gets to go anywhere.

    By Teresa on November 5, 2011 4:53 PM

    I would use the Best Western gift card to be able to enjoy a Spring Break road trip! I would love to head out towards West Texas and/or New Mexico. I would give the second card to my parents who also love to hit the road to head in any direction!

    By Nina F on November 5, 2011 4:56 PM

    I would use the $250 travel card at the Best Western Plus closest to the beach! And I would give the other card to my brother because he never gets to go anywhere.

    By louise on November 5, 2011 4:58 PM

    I would use for a trip to reconnect with my family. They are scattered in many states but what a wonderful trip it could be.

    By Gladys Flournoy on November 5, 2011 4:59 PM

    I would use the card to stay near my Children for the holidays. No one has a large enough home, so we could stay at BW and still be together and spend Christmas with my aging mom, children and grands!!!

    By Cindy on November 5, 2011 4:59 PM

    I would use the first card to elope with my fiance, we have been waiting a really long time to get married and it would be so nice to have a get away for just the two of us.
    The second one I would give to my mom. She deserves to have a nice getaway also!!!

    By rosa johnson on November 5, 2011 5:00 PM

    I would use a $250 Best Western gift card, to travel to the east coast. The second card I would give to my son, so that he and his family could come home for Christmas!!!

    By F Chapman on November 5, 2011 5:01 PM

    Hubby and I would use the card to enjoy Christmas in Branson for a suite at the downtown BW. We love the holiday music shows & Silver Dollar City lights.

    We would give the gift card to my brother, our wonderful cat-sitter when we are out of town. He would most likely use it to visit his grandkids in Florida.

    By Sharon Tompkins on November 5, 2011 5:02 PM

    First let me say I sooo love Best Western Hotels they have the nicest staff and it seems to me you meet the nicest people staying there.
    I would use the $250.00 travel card to take my nieces and nephews to Disneyland for Christmas they are at the perfect age to experience Disney at Christmas when "All Your Dreams come True".

    The second $250.00 travel card I would gift to my niece and her husband for their anniversary. While I take the kids with me to Disneyland they can have a whole weekend of alone time.

    By Randy W on November 5, 2011 5:03 PM

    I would use the card while we visit our son in Thailand. He has been gone for almost four years.

    The other card I would give to our daughter who is getting married in August for her honeymoon.

    By kate McCord on November 5, 2011 5:03 PM

    If I won it for myself, it would be used to travel to see my "kids" and their kids. (I'm living on social security only so a trip to see them is a real luxery I cannot afford. I'd share it with my sister who also has "kids" and grands in the same city. She is retired also. If I were gifting the prize I would give it to my "kids" so they could come to see me!! (I have two adult kids so the prize would just fit).

    I would use the card while we visit our son in Thailand. He has been gone for almost four years.

    The other card I would give to our daughter who is getting married in August for her honeymoon.

    By Scott on November 5, 2011 5:06 PM

    If i recieved the 250 dollar gift card i would use it to pay for one of the many trips i take utilizing the best western franchise. I stay in the hotel chain 3-4 days a week - every week. It would be helpful to pay some of the charges i am racking up in my hotel stays.

    If i were to give the 250 dollar as a gift i would give it to my girl friends cousin. She is out of work and living week to week on un employment - i am sure i nice vacation would be very helpfull to her.

    By Daphne Anstey-Martin on November 5, 2011 5:06 PM

    Well for the $250 BW travel card for myself I would take my hard working husband on a weekend get - a way to Kalispell Montana and stay at the beautiful Best Western so that he could relax, forget about the stress of work and life and just enjoy the scenery.

    I would give the $250 card to my daughter and her wonderful family so that they could take a trip with the two most wonderful grandchildren in the world.

    By Jay Sanborn on November 5, 2011 5:07 PM

    In the last several years my children and us have endured so many recent deaths of grandparents and great grandparents, all too young and all caused by cancer/lukemia. For us we have endured the never-ending pain that goes with it, we are in need of some close family time to try to heal. Both of my wife's parents passed within 2 years of each other, in their 50's, then her grandmother, in her 70's, and recently my father received a stem cell transplant with stage 4 lukemia, and has beaten it. We would like to celebrate the success, while putting the stresses of this behind us if only for a few days in a Best Western.

    The second card with be given to my parents to travel with us, in their 60's, someplace nice so that we could share the time together. They deserve the break after enduring the transplant, while also having an adult mentally disabled son, talk about stress.

    The two cards would be a major stress relief for our family, as you can tell we need it.

    By Lynn H. on November 5, 2011 5:07 PM

    I would use the card to take my sweet husband away for a long week-end, of course we would stay at a Best Western Hotel.

    The second card I would give my sister and brother-in-law they are very special people, so they could take a well deserved trip.

    By Co on November 5, 2011 5:10 PM

    2nd honeymoon in Niagara Falls

    By Derek on November 5, 2011 5:12 PM

    I would use the card to visit my daughter. My daughter has just relocated from Kelowna to near moose Jaw Sask. The card would allow me to spend some extra time with my daughter in Regina. As my daughter really loves swimming and can't do it as much we would stay at the Best Western Seven Oaks in Regina.

    As Christmas is coming and money is tight it would be nice to have some extra time with daughter as I only get to see her usually 4 days a month. This card would go a long ways in helping me spend a little extra time.

    I would then gift a card to mom and dad. with my mom's work schedule lately and my dad managing a building project they just have not had the time to get away. This would be a great x-mas present to give them. They could use the card to get away for awhile.

    By Karen on November 5, 2011 5:13 PM

    I would love to win a Best Western gift card so we could stay at the Best Western near my son's college this May for his graduation from college. The economy has made it tough for a lot of us but this is an accomplishment for my son that we wont miss. If we had a second card we would give it to his aunts and uncles so they could also go and celebrate this fantastic day with us. He was an average student that went to college worked real hard and will graduate with honors and started a business that helps people less fortunate get clothing , while teaching others how to purchase clothing that is produced with out harsh chemicals from more sustainable bamboo fibers.

    By Terry Mac on November 5, 2011 5:16 PM

    I would use it to get away to Victoria, BC and area, for some R &R, and shopping! The other card I would give to my very hard working eldest son who hasn't taken a holiday in years, trying to make his home business a success! He definitely needs/deserves a holiday and treated as a Best Western guest!

    By ginny on November 5, 2011 5:20 PM

    am going to Paris Ky for Thanksgiving and am staying at their Best Western, I could use the girt card, when I go to San Antonio to see my Grandson Graduate from Basic Training Dec 30th

    By sol on November 5, 2011 5:21 PM

    What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card? i could travel back to michigan and spend the holidays with my family.

    By Abigail Campos on November 5, 2011 5:21 PM

    College trip to San Francisco! Need a break from the MPA program.

    By jharmon on November 5, 2011 5:22 PM

    I would use a $250 gift card to bring my husband's brothers and their spouses and families together for a reunion - everyone is scattered across the country we just can't seem to all get together in one place.


    I would give a $250 gift card to my daughter so she could travel and visit her high school friends. She worked 3 jobs to get through college and just bought her first house so there is not much money left over for 'fun'. She deserves some fun!

    By delaine on November 5, 2011 5:22 PM

    I'd use a gift card for my spring european trip or next fall trip to NYC. I'd give the other card to my sister so we could go together for a "sister bonding" trip.

    By Terry Quedenfeld on November 5, 2011 5:22 PM

    My daughter and I are planning a trip south in July, 2012. She will be competing in a karate World Championship in North Carolina then continuing south to visit my two brother's families near Atlanta, GA and Jacksonville, FL.

    I would give the other card to a family at our church and school who just lost their Mother in a terrible car accident. Maybe it will help them go away this summer.

    By kim payne on November 5, 2011 5:23 PM

    I would use it at the Best Western Calgary Centre in March, as I'm staying there for a week when my son gets married (I live in Vancouver). It would help immensely!

    I would the gift of a travel card to my son & his fiancee, they will be honeymooning in Vancouver, downtown, &k staying at the BW Sands on Davie St @ English Bay. It would be so great to help them cut costs on their honeymoon.

    By Laura on November 5, 2011 5:24 PM

    I'd give one of the cards to my mom so she could go to boston for a weekend in the spring. I'd be able to go on a vacation some where I would have to worry about all the costs so I could go someplace nice out of state.

    By K.Davis on November 5, 2011 5:26 PM

    I live in PA ,my son Brandon and his lovely wife Katie and my sweet grandson live in CA,it feels like they have moved to another planet,I miss them all the time and even though my husband and I both work full time we do not have the extra cash to make a trip across country like that a $ 250 card could help to fund our trip.

    I of course would give Brandon and his family the other card so they could make the trip to PA and come HOME !

    By kim payne on November 5, 2011 5:26 PM

    By solomon on November 5, 2011 5:27 PM

    What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card? i could travel back to michigan with my two boys and spend the holidays with my family. It's been a long time since they have seen my father and i know the snow sometimes their can be a pain in the rump but that's how we get memories :)

    By Julie C. on November 5, 2011 5:33 PM

    My fiance and I are getting married in December. We don't have enough money for a honeymoon, so I would use the card to get a room at a local hotel so we can "getaway".

    I would give the other card to my fiance so he could use it to go see his family in the Northwest.

    By Kelly on November 5, 2011 5:33 PM

    I'd take my family on a train trip to Portland, OR, where we would stay a couple nights. We would visit the Portland Zoo and tour the town!

    I would give the second card to my brother who has worked hard this past year to start up his own business since he was laid off from his job. A nice getaway for him would be very appreciated!


    By Mary Scott on November 5, 2011 5:33 PM

    The first card I would use to visit my daughter who is studying to become a psychologist in Palo Alto, CA. The second card I would give to my daughter because she has around $90,000 in student loans, and she must still finance several trips out of state to interview for her internship assignment. Having the Best Western card would be a tremendous help. Thanks for your generousity.
    Mary Scott

    By Petra on November 5, 2011 5:35 PM

    I would use the card towards a trip to California to see my daughter I haven't seen in 10 years. I have been longing to go and hold her close to me.

    I would give the other card to my oldest son so he could come along and see his sister he has missed very much.

    By charles salmon on November 5, 2011 5:35 PM

    Take a trip to wheeler wildlife refuge and hope to see whopping cranes

    By Daniel Cichy on November 5, 2011 5:40 PM

    Definite Vacation out of Wisconsin to a warm climate. Its fun to dream.... Florida, Vegas , or California all sound good... Help get me out out of Wisconsin this winter!

    By Lucille on November 5, 2011 5:43 PM

    I would use the card to go see the Christmas lights in Gatlinburg!

    The other one I would give to my daughter so that her family could go where ever they would like to go!

    By Nicole on November 5, 2011 5:43 PM

    I would use one card to have a nice get-away this winter with my husband during winter break (Vegas? Hawaii?) and the other I would give to my mother-in-law as a "thank you" for watching my kiddos while we are away :-)

    By Donna Brown on November 5, 2011 5:44 PM

    I would use the $250 gift card to visit our son in Denver for the Holidays.

    I would give a $250 gift card to my Daughter for her Honeymoon trip.

    By Judy on November 5, 2011 5:46 PM

    I was very ill in June and slowly recovering. I would give both cards to my daughter. who lives in Oregon so that she and my grandson could come ack here for X=mas to be with me and her sister and brother who lives in Indianapolis. We havent been together for Xmas for a long time.

    By Geoff on November 5, 2011 5:46 PM

    Use it to go to take the kids to DisneyLand.

    By Robyn Connell on November 5, 2011 5:49 PM

    I would take my kids to Vermont to see snow and I would give the other to my mom for watching my dogs while we're gone.

    By Dawn Bucko on November 5, 2011 5:49 PM

    I would give my best friend and her husband the 250.00 gift card and together with my fiancee', we would leave our kids with their Grandparent's and get the most fabulous suites up in Mt. Pleasant, MI with all the bells and whistles. We would spend our days soaking in the hot tubs and watching movies, and then we would use all the extra bathroom space to dazzle ourselves up for a night at the beautiful casinos in Mt. Pleasant, MI. Maybe we will all double our money, and maybe we will lose it all. However, we will enjoy ourselves to the fullest because life goes by so quick! As parents we are constantly dedicating ourselves to their lives, and trust me, they deserve it! But amazing parents need to take the time to enjoy themselves once in awhile, because that is what keeps them going as amazing parents. And two tiny little gift cards could make all the difference in not only the lives of two sets of couples, but play a part in keeping their kids with happy, sane parents! :)

    By kathy Kreis on November 5, 2011 5:50 PM

    I am fortunate to be able to take 2 vacations every year. One with my beautiful husband and one with my girlfriends. My husband and I are going to Yellowstone national park and my girlfriends the grand canyon. That is where I would use both my cards! !.

    By Gloria E on November 5, 2011 5:50 PM

    I would take two of my younger grandchildren away for a weekend stay at Best Western. Their family has had a hard time and haven't been able to get away. I'm sure they would love staying someplace nice with grandma and enjoy a pool, if available, and I would have special time with them all to myself.

    I would give the other card to the parents of the above mentioned grandchildren so they could enjoy some tme to themselves. They weren't able to go on a long honeymoon when they got married, so the card could be put to good use.

    Thank you!

    By Dianne Fuzek on November 5, 2011 5:53 PM

    We stayed at a lovely Best Western in Hallandale Beach area, Florida. We really need a getawaycation - perhaps go back and visit Fort Lauderdale this time. I would keep one certificate for myself and if it is not too selfish, give the other to my husband - we would both enjoy ourselves - maybe even to to the Hard Rock as well - who knows maybe we could get lucky more than once.

    By Dan Black on November 5, 2011 5:53 PM

    We would take a return trip to the space coast in Florida and for the 3rd time in 18 months drive and use BW all the way down and back. We love the Rewards program and the BW establishments we have stayed in.

    By Diane Lambert on November 5, 2011 5:54 PM

    I would use my gift card to visit my youngest son in Benicia, Ca for the Holidays and stay at the Best Western there.

    I would give the other card to my oldest son so we can all be together for the Holidays.

    By Linda on November 5, 2011 5:54 PM

    If I had a $250 Best Western Card, I would go to see my mom for Thanksgiving. Her home is very small and my husband and I have to stay in a motel. We have been Best Western members for many years and they are our choice for lodging. My mom is 87 and very ill with cancer. I am still unemployed and not able to see her for the holiday as she is 500 miles away.
    The other card for $250 I would give to mom and her and I would go somewhere together for our last mother and daughter trip. Maybe Santa Barbara. Not too far from her home, but special.
    Linda

    By Bobbie Pilkinton on November 5, 2011 5:55 PM

    I would use it to celebrate graduating from college next month! My husband and I would probably go to Gatlinburg, Tn or maybe even Pilkinton, Virginia.

    By Brenda on November 5, 2011 5:57 PM

    I would use it for hotels in Colorado this February so that I can sample a few ski resorts that I haven't yet had the opportunity to visit. Woohoo!

    If I was giving it as a gift, I would give it to my husband who loves travelling to New England, especially in the fall.

    By Gloria E on November 5, 2011 5:57 PM

    I would love to take my two youngest grandchildren to a Best Western for a weekend. Their family has had a hard time and have been unable to get away on any trips. The kids would certainly enjoy using the pool, and I would enjoy having the children all to myself.

    I would give the other card to the parents of the above mentioned grandchildren so they could use it toward whatever they wished, including a belated honeymoon they never had when they got married.

    Thank you!

    By Cindy M. on November 5, 2011 5:58 PM

    If I was selected to receive the gift card, I would put it to use when driving my son's truck back to El Paso from South Carolina. I am hoping to see him return soon from his deployment in Iraq.

    The second card would be a gift to my daughter so that she could accompany me.

    By Dan Black on November 5, 2011 5:58 PM

    We would take a return trip to the space coast in Florida and for the 3rd time in 18 months drive and use BW all the way down and back. We love the Rewards program and the BW establishments we have stayed in. I would give the second one to my lovely wife so she could treat me to a couple nights enroute as well.

    PLEASE DELETE MY PREVIOUS ENTRY. I hit enter before I was done by mistake.

    By D. Francisco on November 5, 2011 6:00 PM

    I would plan a weekend out with my girl friends that I have not seen for awhile. As we get older we never have time to see each other and this would be a GREAT way to renew our friendship and catch up.

    I would give the other card to one of my friends and we could get several friends together and really make it a GIRLS WEEK-END ONLY.

    By Berzabeth Felder on November 5, 2011 6:00 PM

    for $250 i would love to spend for thanksgiving vacation...and for the $250 gift card i would love to buy a christmas gift for my mom and my mother in law because they are my loveone that i really adore them. my mom really did a good job for us and she deserves to have a gift for christmas and for her birthday right after christmas day.

    By G. Montoya on November 5, 2011 6:02 PM

    I would donate both to my church youth group going to their annual Christian Youth conference. A place for them to lay their heads and keep warm..Best Western!

    By Christine Sigmon on November 5, 2011 6:04 PM

    I would use the travel card to have a small weekend family getaway, Which we could really use...I would go back to Lafayette Indiana and stay at the Best Western there where they have a small water park connected to it called Buckineer Bay. That was so much fun!!! If I was going to give a $250 travel card to someone it would be my mom and dad who have never went on a vacation they would have a ball staying at a Best Western anywhere!!!

    By Kim M. on November 5, 2011 6:04 PM

    I would use one to go to Florida and see my parents. They didn't have enough money to travel here to Ohio this year so I haven't seen them since last year. While there I could take the grandson to see the ocean for the first time.

    The other I would give my parents so they could come see us. They will have 3 new great grandbabies to see. My Mom would love it

    By Linda on November 5, 2011 6:07 PM

    I would the card to stay at Best Western in Ohio to visit family after the snow and to see my 98 yr. old grandma again cuz you never know when it would be the last visit.


    I would give the other card to my daughter to use on her travels to visit friends. She goes to CA. and visits San Diego and Frisco at least 2 times a year.

    By Kathryn Church on November 5, 2011 6:08 PM

    My husband and I would either go to the West Virginia mountains or Lake Erie for a few days. And I would give the other to my daughter because she does so much for me and she loves to travel. Thank you for the chance to win.

    By Janna Gray on November 5, 2011 6:08 PM

    We're meeting my grandaughter in Aptos, CA for a long week-end. She's transferring to a local college and we're helping her look for lodging. We need to "set up camp" somplace local so that she can job hunt and house hunt during those days. It would be wonderful to have a "BW home" to come home to and a hot waffle in the morning to get us started; that's how I would use my card. I would give my 2nd card to my son so that he and the rest of the family could visit her after she's settled.

    By Chris Brown on November 5, 2011 6:11 PM

    The gift card will help with my hotel stay, my mom can use the other card with her travling often.

    By Deb Francisco on November 5, 2011 6:12 PM

    The $250. would help plan a Ladies week-end away, as we grow older we never find the time to catch up with each other and our familys. This would be a great way to reconnect with my special friends.

    I would share the other card with my sister, so she could do the same with her friends. If we are lucky maybe we could do it together.

    By Barbara Johnson on November 5, 2011 6:20 PM

    If I won these cards I would take a trip to Louisians and Dall to visit our children and grandchildren. The second card I would give to my sister. She loves to travel and she would put it to good use..

    By J Plaizier on November 5, 2011 6:21 PM

    I'd use the card to visit the Best Western in Osoyoos, British Columbia, Canada again. We had a very comfortable stay in a lovely town.

    I'd use the other card to take my brother on a tour. He is on a fixed income and this would be great for him.

    By Bob Clayton on November 5, 2011 6:22 PM

    I would use it to take a trip to San Diego to get out of this cold weather. I would give the other card to my daughter so they could take their kids to Disneyland.

    By Cynthia Weaver on November 5, 2011 6:31 PM

    I'd use the card to treat my mother. She spends all her time taking care of grandchildren, pregnant daughters all with the most limited financial means.

    If I had a card to give away I'd give it to her as well.

    By Linda Kubala on November 5, 2011 6:33 PM

    I only stay at best western, I would go and visit family and stay along the trip and upon arriving.

    I would give a gift of one to my daughter

    By michal mcclenthen on November 5, 2011 6:34 PM

    I would visit family and relatives.
    I would have a drawing for all family and friends. The winner would get the card as the gift.

    By Jen on November 5, 2011 6:35 PM

    I'd use the gift card for accomodations while I went back to visit my school friends and a close friend's burial site for the first time since her passing. I'd give the other card to the same friends so they could visit again - likely halfway between our two places in Ontario

    By Jason jones on November 5, 2011 6:37 PM

    Would take family to grand canyon that's a place we have not been and would love to go! Or give it to mom she works so hard and could use a vacation so badly!!!

    By Rae-ann on November 5, 2011 6:41 PM

    I'd use this for at trip to the Oregon Coast to stay at the Best Western Lincoln Sands Inn & Suites. It's right on the beach, and the setting is beautiful. The pool is also fun for kids.

    By Judy on November 5, 2011 6:46 PM

    I would travel to California to see the Redwood tree that fell on the path in the park and take my husband and friends with me. I really want to see it. I have never been there so it would be an experience.
    I would give the other one to my husband so we could stay there longer to see more of California.

    By Nancy Fender on November 5, 2011 6:48 PM

    I would take my family back to Florida for vacation. We've had a lot of medical bills, lately, and a Best Western gift card would make an awesome start to our vacation fund! I would give the other card to a dear friend of mine who is the go to person for emergency babysitting and advice.

    By Ryan Webber on November 5, 2011 6:52 PM

    I would take the wife to the Canmore, Alberta location and experience the Diamond Romance Package for New Years so we can rekindle a spark in the beautiful Canadian Rockies.

    I would give my parents the gift card for their fortieth wedding anniversary in Feb 2012.

    By Debbie D on November 5, 2011 6:59 PM

    I would travel around the state, staying in small towns at Best Western. I would give a gift card to my husband, so he could take me!

    By Cynthia Booton on November 5, 2011 7:02 PM

    I would use the $250 Best Western travel card to stay at the Best Western near the nursing home where my mother lives. I live far away from her and it would be nice to have a couple of days to have a proper visit with her.
    I would give the $250 Best Western Travel card to my brother if I couldn't have it and then at least he would be able to have a visit with our mother.

    By Paulette Baker on November 5, 2011 7:05 PM

    I'd be able to spend a couple of vacation nights in much nicer motels than usual when I travel to Canada next summer. I'd give the second card to my brother Tom so that he could spend a couple nights on the road with his Harley after a year of physical and emotional upheaval.

    By Nancy B from Many LA on November 5, 2011 7:05 PM

    I would use the card to go to my high school reunion next year. (Shhh - my 40th!)

    I would give the card to my twin sister, so after the reunion, she could come down and visit me!

    By Julie A on November 5, 2011 7:14 PM

    I would use the gift card to visit family that is several states over. It would also be nice to stop at the beach too.
    I would give it to far away relative so they will visit me too!

    By Cindy L on November 5, 2011 7:18 PM

    Simple ... one daughter figure skates and the other plays rengette .. we are in competition mode right now with trips away each month. This would pay for two nights of two competions ... I would give the other to her coach so the skaters would be able to save some money so we would not need to pay for hers or pass to another skater family. Skating is such an expensive sport!

    By Susan O on November 5, 2011 7:18 PM

    1. I would use a BW card to travel to Indiana with my hubby, so that he could see the floating LST museum (he served on one in Vietnam); then go to Missouri to see the Little House Rocky Ridge Farm museum (from the Laura Ingalls WIlder books), then go to Louisiana to see my twin sister and her family.

    2. If I had a BW card to give, it would go to my twin sister so that she and her family could come up to Maryland for our 40th high school reunion in April.

    By Cheryl Van Dyne on November 5, 2011 7:24 PM

    I would use mine to stay at a Best Western somewhere half way to my daughters in CT. The other one I would give to my daughter so she could meet me half way to Ohio, and we would have a great visit.

    By Mary Lumsden on November 5, 2011 7:24 PM

    I would use one for my Husband and I so when we visit our son in Windsor where he attends Collage we can have our own place to stay so he doesnt have to sleep on couch cushions-the other for my daughter as her and her boyfriend tried to have a weekend away to see a Jays game in the summer and had to get a tow for the car and only saw part of the game and had to leave early in the morn-:)

    By Clarice Kaawa on November 5, 2011 7:25 PM

    I would use my best western gift card to pay best western park place when we go to Disneyland in Febuary and I would give the other card to my daughter so she can pay for her room!

    By Dixie McKeel on November 5, 2011 7:25 PM

    I hear the Great Smokey Mountains calling or perhaps a jaunt to Asheville, North Carolina. Both would be beautiful drives. We love the Best Western Zoders Inn in Gatlinburg. Anytime in the Smokies is a wonderful time but this time of year there is almost a magical quality to it. Love to walk around and see the sights with a cup of steaming hot cider. Have never been to Asheville, North Carolina but have always wanted to go..could be the perfect opportunity:)

    I would give the 2nd card to my fabulous mother. She does so much for everyone around her, and she works so hard...harder than she should have to. This should be the time in her life when she should be traveling, relaxing...just enjoying life in general. This card would give her the opportunity to do a little of that. My mom went through being displaced out of her home for 4 months due to a tornado in April and then in September she lost her mom. This could be just the boost she needs and a wonderful early Christmas present!

    By Brandi Powell on November 5, 2011 7:31 PM

    I've got family friends who are adopting 3 little girls who have never been to Disneyland. There is the perfect Best Western right across the street that my family stays at every year. I'd love to give them the gift of free nights at that Best Western. A big expense to cover, but nothing a gift card can't handle!

    By Cindy L on November 5, 2011 7:32 PM

    Easy .. competition time we are travelling each month with my daughter ... who aspires to wear Olympic gold one day .. this could help with our hotel costs and another could help another skaters family. Skating is way too expensive ...but such a beautiful one.

    By Francisco on November 5, 2011 7:36 PM

    I would use the cards to travel to Las Vegas to meet my lost brother that i have not seen in over 12 years, it took me this long to find him and finaly be able to speak to each other again.

    I would use the other card to spend a night in Anaheim to take my young daugther to Disneyland for her first time.

    By lucy berg on November 5, 2011 7:41 PM

    I WOULD TAKE A TRIP TO VERMONT, AND BRING MY FATHER IN LAW WITH THE OTHER $250, BECAUSE HE IS VERY SAD OVER LOSING HIS LONG LOST LOVE OF HIS LIFE

    By Terri Brockman on November 5, 2011 7:42 PM


    We would use it on a road trip from Idaho to Arizona.

    I would give the other one to my sister!

    By chris dunlap on November 5, 2011 7:45 PM

    I would used the 250. for a nice honeymoon at the beach and give the other to my to be husband to help out with it

    By Therese Beaupre-Cerutti on November 5, 2011 7:50 PM

    If I were to win the $250 card , I would use it to visit my grandchildren for Christmas .
    If I were to give a $250 card to someone , I would give it to my son so he and his family could take a long weekend in Toronto over the Christmas holidays .

    By chris dunlap on November 5, 2011 7:51 PM

    I would use it for my honeymoon this summer and give the other one to my soon to be to help out with it

    By CHERYL on November 5, 2011 7:53 PM

    The first gift card I would use for the family to go on a vacation, which we never have had. The only time we travelled on a plane was in 1990 for our honeymoon. Now, it would be awesome to go on a family trip with our two children.

    The second card I would give to a less fortunate family to enjoy some time together locally.

    By Brad Engborg on November 5, 2011 8:03 PM

    Awesome fun! I'd give the card to an old High school friend and his family who I haven't seen in awhile and arrange a scavenger hunt for us! I live in DC- he in Boston. The rules- start a trip and head toward each other to meet in the middle at A Best Western. We'd each have to find and get items each other gives on a list on our journey and we have to show up in the middle at the hotel we reach with ours items.

    Example: A brochure for a water park, a bottle of a local beverage from some small town, a photo of the family in front of a seascape..etc..that sort of thing.

    Once we meet in the middle we spend a day or two together. Hang out at the hotel- have a pizza party - whatever and then head home with new adventures under our belts for us and our families and a chance to catch up again.

    Fun!

    By Michelle on November 5, 2011 8:08 PM

    I would take my kids to the Lakeside Best Western in Kenora, we would have a walking scavenger hunt around Kenora, to see Husky the Musky, the SS Kenora, etc... We would watch movies until the wee hours and of course go in the fabulous roof swimming pool.

    I would give the other card to my wonderful parents who do everything for everyone else:):):):):):)

    By lisa on November 5, 2011 8:10 PM

    My family loves to road trip so we would use it wisely on our travels. We love to explore our local state and threw out the US,

    I would give the other card to my parents, the only two people I know who never go anywhere... Maybe this would finally give them the push to go road tripping somewhere!

    By Melissa Y. on November 5, 2011 8:14 PM

    I would use a $250 Best Western Gift card on a cross country trip we are taking in December! I would give the other gift card to my sister so she can take an adventure of her choice!

    By Dave Gebhart on November 5, 2011 8:15 PM

    Head for New Orleans !!!!!!!!!!!!

    By Kathy on November 5, 2011 8:17 PM

    I would use the gift card I win to stay in of of our 2 favorite Best Westerns in Anaheim for a Disneyland trip.

    I would give the other card to my parents who have not been to Anaheim with my kids yet. They are getting older and have not been to Disneyland since the 80's with their first grandchild. I would like to enjoy a family vacation that includes them.

    By Mary Lee on November 5, 2011 8:25 PM

    I would use it to go to New York and Washington DC.

    I would give the other card to my Three boys to be able to come with us on vacation. We haven't been able to take a family vacation in a long time.

    By Paula Schaus on November 5, 2011 8:28 PM

    I would use my Best Western gift card to go visit my daughter who is away at college and spend some time visiting with her. The other Best Western gift card would go to my sister for us to use for one of our yearly "sister trips".

    By Kathryn Makl on November 5, 2011 8:33 PM

    I would use my gift card for a stay at one of my two favourite Best Western's in Minneapolis - for a broadway play and shopping at Mall of America.

    I would give the other one to my mom so that she could come with us.

    By Diana N. on November 5, 2011 8:37 PM

    I would take a little trip somewhere warm this winter!


    I would give the other card to my sister so she could visit!

    By Linda S on November 5, 2011 8:38 PM

    We would use the card to make a trip to Mississippi to help out at "The Branch of Hope"!!
    Would love to give a card to my daughter and family as they are not able to take very many trips because of their finances, grandchildren would be thrilled!!..

    By Michelle Balvin on November 5, 2011 8:50 PM

    What would I do with a $250 Best Western Gift Card?
    My husband and I are going to Maui for our 15 year anniversary.
    This would help with the hotel cost at Best Western.
    Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?
    My parents because they need a break.

    By Erin Crimmins on November 5, 2011 9:00 PM

    I would use one to go to a skating competition in Dallas around my birthday this year. It would be my first one in over two years.

    I would give the other one to my boyfriend so that he could go up to visit his sister and her kids in missouri. He hasn't seen them in at least a year so this would be a nice treat for him.

    By Mary Jansen on November 5, 2011 9:01 PM

    I would use the card to go to St. Louis shopping for the weekend & see the Christmas decorations. I would give the 2nd one to my mom so she could go to Branson, MO.

    By Dena K on November 5, 2011 9:15 PM

    Well since we are going on a road trip (sometimes small or sometimes long) every couple of months or so, we would use the gift card on our next trip. We always stay at a Best Western anyhow!! ; )
    I would give the other gift card to my brother and his wife, as they have 2 small children and don't get the chance to take off like we do. However, they make a point of going to the Best Western they went to for their honeymoon at least once a year!

    By Jennifer Williams on November 5, 2011 9:17 PM

    I would use mine for either when I go to visit my daughter and grandkids across the state or when we can save enough to take the grandkids to Disneyland.

    I would share one with my daughter to use when we go to Disneyland.

    By Paul on November 5, 2011 9:20 PM

    I would use the card to pay for a few days at the BW Soldiers Field in Rochester while we are at the Mayo Clinic.
    I would give the other to my cousin who comes to visit us there.

    By Janet Hewitt on November 5, 2011 9:21 PM

    My card I would use to have a romantic weekend in Banff with my husband of 25 years.

    The other I would give to my daughter who still lives with us, so she could go away for the weekend while we stay home. For me this would be a win win. Two romantic weekends one away and one home. I would also unplug the phones.

    By Kim on November 5, 2011 9:48 PM

    I would use one of the travel cards for myself and my Daughter. I am not sure where we go but we could defintely use some fun time. We had a rough couple years we lost My Mom, Dad, and Brother.

    The second travel card I would give to my Cousin and her Family. They helped us get through these hard times. They opened up their home to my daughter. My Cousin has been like a Mom to her, Aunt, and best friend when I couldn't be there for since I was the caregiver for our loved ones.

    Thank you.

    By Cindy funderburk on November 5, 2011 10:01 PM

    1. I would like to work on my Bucket list and this would really help. 2. Give the other to my disabled husband for the trip he is planning with his brothers to reconnect

    By Nanci Jean on November 5, 2011 10:58 PM

    I would use the gift card to take my husband to see his family for Christmas. We have suffered greatly from this recession. For the dame reason, I would give him the other gift card so we could stay a little longer.

    By Tiffany Laventure on November 5, 2011 11:00 PM

    What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card? go to the beach!


    Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift? prob someone in my fam

    By Nancy on November 5, 2011 11:09 PM

    I'd use it to help pay for travel expenses when my daughter competes at her gymnastic meets. We're starting to travel more now for competition, and it gets expensive.

    I'd take the second one and share it with our gym, so they can use it to raise funds for their charities. That way, another family gets to benefit from its use when traveling, and the gym's charity benefits. They donate a lot of time and efforts to our local autistic community, and to M-Lisada.

    By Cindy Moore on November 6, 2011 12:06 AM

    I would use it to visit my son who is at college! I would love to go see him for a couple of days! I would give it to my son so he could come home and visit!

    By Diana on November 6, 2011 12:14 AM

    We never got to take a vacation this year and we lost my dad this year also. I would take my girls to Seaside, Oregon and stay at the Best Western there.

    I would give it to one of my sisters so that they could come up here and visit.

    By Diana Nelson on November 6, 2011 12:18 AM

    We didn't get a vacation this year and we lost my dad. I think I would use the card to take my kids to the beach and stay at the Best Western.

    By Gloria E on November 6, 2011 12:35 AM

    I would love to take two of my grandchildren to a Best Western for a weekend. Their family has had a hard time and have been unable to get away on any trips. The kids would certainly enjoy using the pool, and I would enjoy having the children all to myself.

    I would give the other card to the parents of the above mentioned grandchildren so they could use it toward whatever they wished, including a belated honeymoon they never had when they got married.

    Thank you!

    By maryS on November 6, 2011 12:55 AM

    I would use my $250 Best Western Card when my family and I travel to San Antonio, TX.:)

    By Gianna on November 6, 2011 1:47 AM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?"
    I would take my siblings, along with flowers and visit mom in San Francisco. We miss her so much!!


    "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?"
    I would give the second one to my son and ask him where he'd like to go...his choice! I've always wanted to do that!

    By Rory on November 6, 2011 1:50 AM

    I would take my son to see his grandmother ( my mom who I haven't seen in 10 years, and he has never met) also a lot of family i haven't sen since i was a Young

    By J. Bart on November 6, 2011 2:14 AM

    I would use the card to cover a night at the Best Western Arroyo Roble in Sedona. It looks like a beautiful hotel with an unbelievable view of the Red Rocks. Just sitting on the balcony watching the sun go up or go down would be a fabulous experience.

    If I had to give the card, I would give it to my daughter, who is doing a semester abroad in England. Best Western is everywhere in Europe and this would allow her a "splurge" weekend in a European city rather than staying in a hostel.

    By Heather E on November 6, 2011 2:23 AM

    I would use it for our family trip up to Michigan in the summer. I'd give the other card to my hubby, so we can come HOME from Michigan! LOL!

    By Sherry on November 6, 2011 3:17 AM

    I would take my kids to the beach because they have never been before!

    I would give the second card to my best friend, he needs a break.

    By Barb on November 6, 2011 3:18 AM

    I would use the card to visit my son and family who live 1500 miles away. I would give the other card to him so we would come visit me.

    By Jennifer on November 6, 2011 3:20 AM

    I would use the card on our spring vacation to FL. I would give the other card to my parents, so they could get some extra grandchildren time in.

    By Peter Martin on November 6, 2011 4:13 AM

    We used to live in Chicago but now live up in Wisconsin. We try to get back to the city as often as possible but can't do it as often as we'd like. Winning the gift card would give us the chance to spend the weekend in Chicago showing our 5 year old daughter the sites and sounds of the "big city."

    I would give the other gift card to my parents so that they could join us in Chicago and spend time with their granddaughter.

    By Peter Martin on November 6, 2011 4:14 AM

    By Catherine Bradford on November 6, 2011 4:17 AM

    I would take my husband on a much needed vacation and share with my daughter who really needs a vacation!

    By Christopher Counts on November 6, 2011 4:22 AM

    I would like to give both cards to my mom and dad because my mom has a Kidney Disorder and i want her to go to bestwestern and get pamperd. My dad because when i had a car wreak he gave me money to move to Alabma when i couldn't work i love them both.

    By blessedta on November 6, 2011 4:23 AM

    Will use it to book hotel for our Disney land vacation.

    By Sonya Hirsch on November 6, 2011 5:00 AM

    I would use the Best Western gift card to visit Chicago and get together with some dear friends who live all over the U.S.A.! The gift card would go to my mom, so she can travel with her dogs and do agility events out of state.

    By abi on November 6, 2011 5:14 AM

    We have not yet travelled to vancouver from Calgary.. would like to travel there and stay at the best western.

    I would give the card to my wife. because each time we travel, we stay at low budget motels and she has always complained that we have never splurged on a decent stay at a hotel. if we stay anywhere nice, its because we get friends and family rate from my brother who works in the lodging industry. the best westerns are typically the nicer lodges that we would like to stay but dont cause well.....im just stingy. this card will be a splurge on the most beautiful woman in my life.

    By Dan Landis on November 6, 2011 5:18 AM

    I would use it to go east from San Francisco to Utah on Hwy 50 (America's Loneliest Highway). Would stop at my favorite Best Western - South Lake Tahoe Best Western Station House Inn and then go east on Hwy 50 through Carson City and Ely.

    Might give my card to one of my high school students who excels academically this year. Many have never left their inner city Oakland community.

    By Harmony B on November 6, 2011 5:21 AM

    Would use it for a quick getway with my hubby, We have 3 small boys at home. Could use a break.
    Would give the other to my mother because after babysitting the kids she will need a getaway.

    By gpapadop on November 6, 2011 5:26 AM

    Spend it on a trip to the North Michigan area. Bring wife along & put the kids in a separate room;-)

    By Charles McGregor on November 6, 2011 5:30 AM

    I would use one to go to Tunica, Mississippi and go to the casinos.
    I would give the other one to my friend in Alaska who has had some medical issues and could use a few days off to spend at a Best Western.

    By Judy Talbot on November 6, 2011 6:01 AM

    I would use it to go to the Keys in FL and give the other one to my sister who desperately could use a break.

    By Norma Fanzo on November 6, 2011 6:30 AM

    Winning the card would allow me to stay in Best Western hotels on my annual road trip north next summer to see my son's and my grandchildren in Annapolis, Md.

    The second card I would give to friend to use for a special weekend escape.

    By Cindy Grabeel on November 6, 2011 6:49 AM

    After my Mother gets out of her rehabilitation for breaking her hip, I'd love to that her & her husband on a little get-away. Her husband has been SO attentive to her, that he really needs a respite. MY husband & myself would appreciate the comfort of a nice Best Western retreat ourselves. Thanks for the opportunity to share this!

    By Cindy Grabeel on November 6, 2011 6:52 AM

    Typo correction from entry above: I'd love to TAKE her & her husband on a little get-away. Oops, and thank you.

    By John Barrett on November 6, 2011 6:54 AM

    I would use mine to visit my kids at college.
    I would give the other to my brother and his three kids. He has been unemployed for well over a year and forced to move back home with my mom. They (and she!) could use a break.

    By Steve Hafford on November 6, 2011 7:11 AM

    I would give one to my daughter, and the other to my son .

    By Marlo on November 6, 2011 7:18 AM

    I would use the Best Western gift card to go on a road trip and visit friends who just moved across the country. I know I can stay with them when I arrive, but that would be a long drive (or an awkward flight) without stopping along the way.

    I would give the other gift card to my brother who often travels to see his kids.

    By maria m on November 6, 2011 7:37 AM

    I would use when I visit relatives during the holidays, so I can visit without feeling that I am imposing and can get a good night's sleep.

    By deb on November 6, 2011 8:05 AM

    I would use it to book a room in St. Thomas Virgin Islands to stay before embarking on a catamaran cruise, and i would give a card to my friends to join us. The more the merrier!

    By KrisW on November 6, 2011 8:16 AM

    I would share it with a friend by going to Montreal for a weekend.

    By katie mae on November 6, 2011 8:33 AM

    I'll be 60 soon and have always wanted to go to Disney World and hug Goofy before I grow up....tho' I doubt I'll ever grow up....or old. A $250 gift card would put me at the Best Western Lake Buena Vista Resort Hotel right on the Disney property. Imagine shuttle service to all 4 parks!!! Heaven on earth and a grin on my freckled face!!! The other card....why to my other half, of course. Double our fun....double our pleasure with that Goofy fella and all his friends. :D

    By Beth Groundwater on November 6, 2011 8:34 AM

    My husband and I would use my own Best Western card to have a surprise visit with my daughter in Oregon. She always has to fly to see us and has been asking us to visit her instead. With the card lowering the trip expenses, we could swing it, and it would be fun to surprise her.

    I would give a gift Best Western card to the local office of Wounded Warriors to help reunite injured soldiers with their families for the holidays.

    By Armando Garza on November 6, 2011 9:19 AM

    I am in the Army and am about to get out after 10 years of service with 3 deployments to Iraq. I would use my card to use travel to see my family that I havnt seen in years, including my parents.

    I would give the second card to my mother-in-law so my wife would get to see her mom after being so far away from her family.

    By Dixie Bibbee on November 6, 2011 9:21 AM

    I would use mine for a trip to do the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky from Lexington to Louisville. The other card I would give to my daughter for them to use when they travel with my grandson's hockey team for tournaments out of town on weekends.

    By Michael on November 6, 2011 9:32 AM

    I'd go visit my friend Tom with my card - we never get the chance to hang out too much any more and this would be a good excuse.
    I'd give the other one to my friend Tom so he could come visit me some time after my visit. That's the great thing about Best Western - hotels everywhere!

    By Jeanne Wagner on November 6, 2011 9:37 AM

    I would use the card for my husband and I to travel down to Utah & Arizona for a few weeks. It is soooo beautiful and so many things to see but being retired the $250 Best Western hotel card would sure help!
    I would give the other card to my Mom & Dad who are 85 years old and still love to travel.

    By Leslye on November 6, 2011 10:05 AM

    I would use the card to visit my mom in Houston where we could stay in Galveston as a family.
    I would give the card to my sister and her family to stay in Dallas for our family reunion.

    By Harry Grace on November 6, 2011 10:14 AM

    A weekend at St Augustine, FL, or at Orange Park Florida, for my lovely wife and I. Both have very nice Best Western accommodations and pleasant professional staff to make the weekend getaway a very special event. The extra card goes to my wife. She deserves it. When we travel we have found Best western to be the reliable place to stay. Good times just seem to occur. Get out for a weekend. Stay at a Best Western. Enjoy!!

    By Kathleen Conner on November 6, 2011 10:47 AM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?"--I would take a weekend vacation--maybe Las Vegas? (I've never been, and that's just not right.)

    Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?"
    My husband, because I know he's take me with him! =)

    By Betsy Goding on November 6, 2011 11:00 AM

    Best Western is a very nice hotel and we love to stay there. We would use the gift card to travel to Florida to visit my mother who is in a nursing home and we would give the other gift card to my son, so he and his fiancee could come to see us.

    By David on November 6, 2011 11:14 AM

    I would use it on a trip to somewhere in Eastern Canada.

    I would give the other card to my parents as a gift.

    By Angela McLeod on November 6, 2011 11:36 AM

    With my gift card I'd take my grandchildren and their mother to Legoland when they visit us in Florida.

    By Nancy Dziedzic on November 6, 2011 11:36 AM

    I would use the first card for travel to job interviews or relocating when I finally secure a job!
    2nd card would be donated to a program for our soldiers "Hotels for Hero's " or something similiar to pay for hotels for families of soldiers to be near them while they are recovering from injuries.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    By Cindy Carlson on November 6, 2011 11:41 AM

    I would use it to stay in beautiful Cascade Locks and give the other to my brother-in-law

    By Natalie on November 6, 2011 11:47 AM

    I would use the first card to help my fiancee and I go away for a little while after we get married and I would give the second card to my soon to be mum-in-law so she can be here for the wedding.

    By Mindy S on November 6, 2011 11:47 AM

    I would take my husband and kids to the nearby Best Western that has an amazing indoor water park. We've only been there once so it would be a real treat for all of us.

    I would share the other Best Western giftcard with my friend and her family of five. Maybe they would come to the BW waterpark with us!

    By Gootsms on November 6, 2011 11:54 AM

    Where? I would go to Kissimmee, Fl. It would be fun to see area amusement parks. Plus my brother lives in the Orlando area.

    Who would I give the other card to - has to be my parents. The handicap accessible
    rooms at the Best Western would be a must for my mother who is wheelchair bound. This is also why I selected the location - the parks there are very wheelchair friendly plus my brother is near by. My parents never travel anymore and this would be so special for them.

    By tara B on November 6, 2011 11:54 AM

    I would certainly spoil my family with some time away!

    I would love to see my moms face when I give this gift to her!

    By Brenda Eason on November 6, 2011 11:59 AM

    I would use the $250 card to go to the mountains of NC and stay at Best Westerns in that area. Best Westerns ROCK!

    I would give my friend Becky the other $250 card so that she could get away from home for a little bit. She deserves a break!

    By Shannan G on November 6, 2011 12:06 PM

    I would use my card to take my family to the beach in San Diego it is our favorite relaxation spot.
    The other card I would give to my best friend, she is recently married and never got a honeymoon.

    By lyle schilling on November 6, 2011 12:07 PM

    My wife has recently retired and then I was "retired" by my employer. Our hobby is running. I would use the certificate to travel to a fun race where we could stay a couple of nights. Then we could have a night to rest up before the race and a day to stay around the town for a second night so we wouldn't have to drive home for hours on out over 60 year old joints! Best Western has helped us prepare for some of our best races. I would give the other certificate to my step daughter, so she could visit her father in Michigan who was just diagnosed with colon cancer.

    By Michelle Keiser on November 6, 2011 12:17 PM

    I was just married on 11/02/11 and I would use the $250 gift card towards planning a "get away" for my new husband and I.

    The other card I would give to my daughter for when she takes her boys away for hockey games...that way she can spend the night instead of travelling back home the same day. Plus, it would put a smile on her face and that would make me happy too.

    By Vikki Gilden on November 6, 2011 12:38 PM

    I'd be taking my husband and 2 daughters to Disneyland to stay at the Best Western Stovall's!

    Then with the gift, I'd be sending my other daughter and her husband too!

    By tammy bush on November 6, 2011 12:40 PM

    I would use my gift card to help with travel accomodations for my nine year olds son's hockey tournaments..As a single mom it would definetely help..

    I would give the other gift card to my close friend who has helped me and him and has taken him to many practices when ive been unable to bc ive had to work..It would allow her to see what difference her help has made in his life...:)

    By K G on November 6, 2011 12:44 PM

    I would use one on a trip to visit my granddaughters and give one to my daughter whose husband is in the Navy so they could use it on a trip.

    By Juli on November 6, 2011 1:03 PM

    I'd use it to explore a new city! I love to travel but hate that hotels are often the most expensive part of the trip! I'm staying at the BW in Auckland, New Zealand soon (MAJOR splurge trip for my birthday!) and really happy to have found a great hotel at a great price!! And I LOVE that BW's are ALL over the world! Such a great hotel chain!

    I'd give the 2nd to my Mom...my best friend! She's an amazing person who deserves to spoil herself. I'd take her on a trip so we could experience something together!

    By John Billiris on November 6, 2011 1:03 PM

    I would use the card to take a trip into the mountains of Colorado.

    I would give the other card to my son,who is coming to visit me this winter.

    By Kim H. on November 6, 2011 1:21 PM

    I would use the card for a cross border shopping spree and give the other to my best friend so she could come too.

    By Linda E. on November 6, 2011 1:26 PM

    I would use the the gift card to help my husband and I get to Salem, Oregon from Ohio in December when our son gets home from his year's tour of duty in Afghanistan. It will take us about 3/4 days depending on the route and the weather so the card would certainly come in handy. Then we would share the other card with them so that he and his wife could have a get away weekend in Portland or whereever they want and we could babysit our grandson Alex. That way the gift cards would help us get to Oregon and our son enjoy seeing his wife again after all this time.

    By Steve Dadolf on November 6, 2011 1:36 PM

    I would use the gift card to stay overnight after taking her to her favorite classical music concert. I'd give the second card to my daughter so she and her husband could join us for the concert.

    By Paul Ullrich on November 6, 2011 1:45 PM

    I'd use it to take a trip to Ottawa for our 40th wedding anniversary next spring.

    I'd give the other card to my wife Margaret, because $250 doesn't go that far in Ottawa anymore!

    By Joiceann on November 6, 2011 2:11 PM

    I would travel with my gift card and I would give the other to my sister who loves to travel but doesn't always have the money.

    By JRF on November 6, 2011 2:23 PM

    I would use the first card for myself to use for a little RnR getaway.

    And the second card I would give to my neice as she is a young married woman with 2 little kids and may need a getaway for herself and I know she could not afford to do so without the help of this giftcard.

    By emily dunlay on November 6, 2011 2:30 PM

    id use the gift card to see my best friend! since we've graduated we havent seen each other much! & id love to surprise her.

    id give the other to my mom and dad to enjoy a little vacation

    By Laura Jacob on November 6, 2011 2:37 PM

    Applying to grad school is expensive, especially when you're applying to programs all over the country! I would use the gift card to make sure I had a place to stay when I'm interviewing for assistantships on campus.

    I would give the gift card to my parents. They can't afford to visit their children or grandchildren very often, and giving them this would make it certain they'd get themselves out of the house and out of the state to visit us!

    By Peggy Pena on November 6, 2011 3:34 PM

    my hubby and i would visit the beautiful state of colorado if i won the card.

    for a gift, i would give the card to my daughter and her hubby to do as they please.

    By Julie-Ann White on November 6, 2011 3:42 PM

    I would go to the states for a little Christmas Shopping and give the other one to my cousin so she can meet me there!

    By sharoninavolvo on November 6, 2011 3:58 PM

    My youngest son in the Army is due to be deployed, as it's been last minute the last 2 deployments for him, it would be great to know we have the hotel paid for on the way to see him off with the 1 Travel Gift Card & knowing we're staying at a Best Western would be even better?!

    His Auntie/my sister is one of his greatest/beloved supporters & she'd love to see him off too, so of course I'd give her the 2nd Travel Gift Card so she could stay at the Best Western with us?!

    Thank you for the chance to win these 2 cards?! :o)

    By Joseph Hall on November 6, 2011 4:28 PM

    For mine I would use it for my wife and I are going to Wilmington Nc. Starting in Saint Augustine Fl. We would be using the I-Phone app to locate Best Westerns for the trip.

    And for the gift one we would ask our good friends to come along with us, they had to cancel because money is to tight right now and this would fix everything.

    THANK YOU Best Western

    By Linda Bradford on November 6, 2011 4:37 PM

    I would book into the small, but very comfortable Best Western in North Vancouver where we stayed once before. Then I could vist my daughter who now lives in North Van and who I can't get to see much because we are in Ontario. I would give the other card to my son so that he could visit his sister who he hasn't seen since last Christmas.

    By margaret grant on November 6, 2011 4:49 PM

    I would use the first card to travel to St. Thomas with my friends


    The second card would go to Make A Wish to help families get away,

    By Kathleen Zank on November 6, 2011 4:50 PM

    I would take the LOVE OF MY LIFE OF 46 YEARS on a road trip to visit some of the BestWesterns that we have not stayed at.

    The second one I would give to my Friend Sharon who has been dealing with some difficult health issues with the LOVE OF HER LIFE OF 45 years. She could really use a NICE TIME.

    By Shery Sorensen on November 6, 2011 4:51 PM

    We would use the two $250.00 on our way to Scottsdale AZ from Vancouver BC. We are snowbirds and we do this trip every year. We stayed in a Best Western Plus last year in Eureka on our way home and were very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace etc.in this new hotel.
    We would give our second card to our very dear friends who also do the trip every year. It would be a good way to introduce them to your Best Western Plus as they have not had the experience of staying in one. It would also be a nice way to repay them for hosting us so many times in their home in AZ.

    By Joseph Hall on November 6, 2011 4:56 PM

    For mine, my wife and I would go to the beach in Wilmington Nc. from Fl. And use the Best Western app on our phone to plan the trip.

    For the one to gift, I would give it to our friends that had to cancel going with us because money is to tight right now,

    This would solve all our problems, Thanks Best Western

    By Kim C on November 6, 2011 4:58 PM

    I would use my $250 Best Western Travel Card to visit California during the cold winter here in Minnesota.

    I would give the other Best Western Travel Card to my friend in Las Vegas to visit me.

    By Leah Allen on November 6, 2011 4:59 PM

    I would use it for a girl's weekend and give the other to my husband for a boy's weekend. We both could use some time away from all the stress of bills, life, work, and our teenage son, and 2 adult daughters living back at home.

    By LEngel on November 6, 2011 5:41 PM

    We are talking about a trip to Montreal & Quebec City in the early spring to see the Ice Carnival & tour around Montreal...we would use this gift card to definitely take in this trip & stay where we know we can get a good night's sleep & high standard of accomodation for our dollar$$$$.

    The gift card I would love to give to my sister, who really needs a vacation to a warm spot......who can fly for free (or close to it), but can not afford the accomodations expense...This would be a perfect treat for her!

    By Paul B on November 6, 2011 5:47 PM

    I would use mine to go see my "new" Great Grandson in Red Deer, Alberta. They don't have any extra room, so I need a hotetl. I would then give my Grandson and his wife the other one, as they really need a night on the town, somewhere by themselves...so of course we would babysit!!!

    By Sharon on November 6, 2011 5:52 PM

    The Friday night before Thanksgiving, the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and the Saturday after Thanksgiving, I need to get a room. The first night we are heading toward the Willamette Valley. Saturday we will be in Billings, Montana arriving very late, and the following Saturday we will be getting ready to fly home from Billings. :(

    By Connie G on November 6, 2011 6:01 PM

    I would use the card to go back to the BW in Drummondville. My husband and I stopped in at Drummondville on they way back from our belated honeymoon over 2 years ago and he just loved it and can't wait to go back. The rest would go towards a night in Niagara Falls to see the lights during the holiday season.

    By kristind on November 6, 2011 6:09 PM

    First I'd use my gift card to go home for Thanksgiving...the drive is too far for one day and airfare is ridiculous! This helps break up the trip and helps ease the burden of our mid-trip stop.

    As a gift I'd give it to my parents and tell them to come out and visit! :) I think they always deserve a getaway and how perfect this would be around the holidays!

    By Nicholas Porzio on November 6, 2011 6:43 PM

    I would take my family on a trip to see my wife's 99 year old Grandmother in Huntsville, AL.

    I would give the other one to my best friend Eric. He catered my Dad's 'going to heaven' party and would not let us pay him a dime.

    By Kristin on November 6, 2011 6:43 PM

    1. I have wanted to go on a road trip for a very long time. The economy has not necessarily been advantageous to doing so however. If I won the card I would use it to finally go on that road trip.

    2. I would give the other card to one of my friends who loves to travel just as much as I do but often has to choose between paying the bills and making a trip to visit friends and/or new places.

    By lmr on November 6, 2011 7:27 PM

    I would fulfill a bucket list for out west. I would donate the gift card to our school for a fundraiser

    By tater on November 6, 2011 7:31 PM

    i would use it for a road trip to isee idaho's hells canyon . I would possibly donate the gift card to charity

    By rags on November 6, 2011 7:34 PM

    first off i would stay at the best best western i could
    the gift card i would give to my girlfriend so she could come along

    By Lisa L on November 6, 2011 8:33 PM

    I would use mine to plan a special getaway with my husband. It has been a very long time!!! I would stay at a beach location!
    I would give the other one to my sister. She was laid off from work and is really struggling. This would be a wonderful gift to give her.

    By Clarissa G. State on November 6, 2011 8:56 PM

    My 8 year-old daughter has a life-threatening condition called IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY HEMOSIDEROSIS. It's been very hard the last few weeks...in and out of the hotel called "The Hospital"! We need to go to a REAL hotel for a nice relaxing break...maybe Anaheim, Yosemite, San Diego? THAT would be a real blessing!

    By Kim on November 6, 2011 8:57 PM

    I would use the gift card for a girls weekend away. it would be nice to be able to pick the hotel tab

    By Glenn Grabowski on November 6, 2011 9:24 PM

    I would use the gift card for a romantic getaway with my wife. i would donate a gift card to a charity/worthy cause that could benefit people in need

    By Odessa on November 6, 2011 11:47 PM

    I would go with my family to go see my cousin in Las Vegas. We only get to see her and her husband a couple f times a year.
    i would give one to my dad, so he could go see his mom. He doesn't even get to see her once a year.

    By Cyndy Collins on November 7, 2011 12:41 AM

    My best friend since junior high school lives in Seattle while I live in WV and we haven't seen each other in...forever. (She has teenage kids that I've never even met.) If I won a travel card to keep for myself, I'd use it on my way out west and finally go to visit her. If I had one to give away, I'd either give it to her so we could meet in the middle and have an adventure together, or I'd give it to my sister so she could join us. Since we all love & miss each other so much, this would be a trip to remember for all time!

    By Jennifer Schultz on November 7, 2011 12:55 AM

    My Mom, Aunt and I have been discussing getting together in Phoenix where my cousin has been living. I haven't seen my Aunt or Cousin in over five years. I would definitely give the gift one to my Aunt so she could make the trip. I'd use the other for a room for my mom and me to share or if she wanted her own space, I'd pay for a separate room and let her use the card to pay for her room.

    By Gina H. on November 7, 2011 1:11 AM

    I would use it to take my sister away for the weekend. She has just finished chemo & really deserves a trip. I would give her the other card to use anyway she would like.

    By Cheri on November 7, 2011 1:28 AM

    I would travel to Lincoln Nebraska to watch the corn huskers, Go Big Red !!! I like staying at Best Western for all its haves and specials.

    By Tracy Robertson on November 7, 2011 1:36 AM

    I would take a road trip to Reno with my sweetheart to visit some close friends who live there. We have been meaning to do that for the past 3 years and haven't had the extra money yet! I would give the 2nd card to my parents, who definitely would enjoy a road trip too!

    By Beth Hughes on November 7, 2011 1:42 AM

    I'd use the 250 gift card to stay in Seattle when working back to back events at Century Link Field. Being able to soak in a nice tub before crashing and getting right back up to work would be SO nice! Plus I could share with a fellow worker or 2 who travel even further to the stadium.

    I would give the second card to my friend Mary, who could really use the RnR of a nice hotel after spending her days raising 6 kids.

    By Sidney Cook on November 7, 2011 2:44 AM

    I would take a roadtrip up to Yellowstone since we have never been, and we would invite our cousin who just lost his job and treat him to a wonderful trip.

    By Lisa Bourlier on November 7, 2011 2:52 AM

    Perfect for a road trip!!
    Second card I would give to my Mom she really needs a getaway!

    By LeeAnn P. on November 7, 2011 3:11 AM

    I would use the card for a long delayed road trip to Orlando with the family! And I'd love to share with my sister so she can fly out with my niece and come along with us, we miss them sooo much!!!

    By Cheryl B. on November 7, 2011 3:30 AM

    I would use the gift card to help my husband and I get away. Our getaway would be to a small island that we have wanted to visit for a very long time. It has been a very stressful few months and this would help us to relax and get away from it all.

    I would give the other card to our friends so they could come along with us. We enjoy seeing the beauty of Michigan together and they could use some time away from home and work also.

    By Tom Nylund on November 7, 2011 3:30 AM

    We live on Long Island and travel into New York City about twice a month to see a Broadway show. It would be great to stay overnight and not have to make the return trip late at night after the show. I'd give the 2nd card to friends who'd want to join us,

    By Shelly P on November 7, 2011 3:43 AM

    It would be great just to win a gift card from Best Western. Our last trip included a stay at Best Western and I'd like to go back. The extra gift card would be given to my big brother. He likes to travel and right now he works so much he hasn't been able to travel lately. He needs a weekend stay at Best Western for some rest and relaxation.

    By Cathy E on November 7, 2011 3:56 AM

    I would use a gift card to go visit my family in Baltimore and give the other to my sister so she could come visit me!

    By christina ernst on November 7, 2011 4:04 AM

    I'm a big fan of Best Westerns especially overseas. I would use it for a trip to a beach possibly west coast Florida - my 85 year old mother in law's health is ailing rapidly and I want her to visit the beach one last time with her only grandchild (3 years old). The second gift card would be for her room.

    By Cheryl Thompson on November 7, 2011 4:28 AM

    I would take a greatly needed vacation to the Smoky Mountains for some relaxation. Thanks for the chance!

    By Ruth Madewell on November 7, 2011 4:30 AM

    My family is having a family reunion next summer. If I won I would use the $250 Best Western card to stay at Best Western hotels during our trip. I would give the other one to my sister and her family to use for the trip as well!

    By Margaret Porter on November 7, 2011 4:33 AM

    I would use the card to take my sweety to Gatlinburg, Tn. The Best Western Twin Islands is a wonderful place to stay!

    I would give the other card to my daughter and her hubby to come with us to Gatlinburg. They both want to go but cant afford the hotel and the gas. We could furnish both this way!

    By Steve Hamilton on November 7, 2011 4:39 AM

    I would use the gift card on our month long road trip to Wyoming, Colorado and Montana in 2012.

    By Kimberly Snead on November 7, 2011 4:43 AM

    I would do something special for my parents. They have had a rough few months and I know this will brighten their smile. And I will take around the clock care of my grandmother who has Alzehimers just to give them a break while they enjoy this card if we shall win!!
    Good luck to all!! Peace and Blessings!

    By kennyandlisa on November 7, 2011 4:46 AM

    I would use the card and take the family somewhere nice! i'd give the other one to my mom and dad so they can go enjoy themselves to!!

    By Tina Rath on November 7, 2011 4:46 AM

    I'd take good friends from Jamestown Ohio on a trip to Florida in January so they could enjoy warm weather.

    By deb kovac on November 7, 2011 4:55 AM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?" I would go see my niece that move about 6 months ago to a different state. I would give my sister the 2nd $250 Best Western Travel Card so she could go with me to see her daughter. It was really hard for my sister and her daughter when she moved to a different state. It will be really hard for my sister to go see her daughter without winning this Best Western Travel Card. It would be great if we could win the $250 Best Western Travel Card. Best Western is home away from home.

    By Amy Lafayette on November 7, 2011 5:03 AM

    I would use the $250 Best Western gift card to drive across the country! I've never been further west than New York, and it's always been a dream of mine to someday make it out to the west coast. A gift card like this could really help make it happen!

    The other gift card I would give to my out-of-state coworkers, who always, always stay at the Best Western when visiting our office in Vermont.

    By melissa w on November 7, 2011 5:03 AM

    I would use the first card for a "Mini-vaca" for my kids and myself. We have been under severe stress for almost 6 months now, and it would be a welcome respite.

    I would give the second one to my husband, so that we can plan a special getaway for just the two of us. Some "alone time" would be much appreciated and needed.

    By Shannon M on November 7, 2011 5:22 AM

    I would use one to visit my Mom in California and I would give the other card to my Mom so she could come and see her grandson!

    By Eamonn on November 7, 2011 5:30 AM

    My daughter just made the local Rep baseball team. I would use one of the cards for one of her away games. It would be a big help.

    I would give the other card to my wife so she could have a nice night at BW Laguna Brisas on her next trip to Los Angeles.

    By Kerry Harman on November 7, 2011 6:15 AM

    We would use the BW gift card to go home to Jacksonville, FL for the holidays. We havent spent the holidays with my mother since my father passed and this would allow for a wonderful financial savings for us to go.

    THe other BW voucher would be given to my grown sons for them to come along and join us for the holidays! Thanks BW for the excellent giveaway opportunuty.

    By Kelly Paradise on November 7, 2011 6:20 AM

    I would use the $250 Best Western Travel Card to visit some friends that moved over the Summer and I would give the other $250 travel card to my close friend that would also be traveling with me.

    By John Joseph on November 7, 2011 6:34 AM

    I would use it to go visit my mother in ohio since she cant answer her phone anymore and I would give one to my sister so if she comes to visit me she can rest at a good comfortable nice room along the driving route

    By Steve Rhodes on November 7, 2011 6:42 AM

    I would use my card to take a trip with my wife as she deserves a break and have never had an opportunity to take her anywhere. A Best Western hotel is often a welcome site on our long travels.

    By Darlene Schubert on November 7, 2011 7:02 AM

    I've been happily married for almost 13 years to my husband. We still have yet to go on a Honeymoon. If we won this, we would, for sure celebrate our marriage! With having 4 children we don't get much alone time and this would be perfect to plan a little get away!

    I'd give the other Best Western Travel Card to my long time best friend, her husband is in the Army and they just relocated to Louisiana. She tries every year to make her way back home to Michigan, and I know for sure they could use this, because having 4 kids you have to stop and rest.

    By Pamela M on November 7, 2011 7:20 AM

    I would give my card to a close friend. He is a wonderful man who works hard at a very tough job. Everyday he helps those who are in a place where they can't help themselves. He advocates for them, he helps them break devastating addictions and he gives it his all. He truly has the heart of a servant and he lives it everyday. The downside to working in public service is that pay no where compares to that of corporate America. I would love for him to be able to take his children and grandchildren somewhere fun for a weekend and not have to worry about money and your card would cover this. :)

    As for me, I would probably use it for a weekend trip with my son, who is a senior in High School or I give it to my friend to add to his trip. :)

    By jules l. on November 7, 2011 7:40 AM

    I would use the card for a summer vacation this year instead of having to stay at home!

    I'd give a card to a special person so he could travel to Big Sur..

    By Donna on November 7, 2011 7:49 AM

    Although, I would love to use it for myself....I am - for the first time - organizing a Cancer Benefit Concert for a dear friend, Steve, that has inoperable Stage 4 cancer. I would donate to him and his family!!!

    By kristi on November 7, 2011 8:06 AM

    If I had a $250 gift card I would stay at the Best Western Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach in Cambria. We love this area for families- the beach, Hearst Castle, the elephant seals and wine tasting are all less than 30 minutes away. I would give the gift to my good friend Gerry so she could come and join us and escape the cold Wisconsin winter!

    By Stacy on November 7, 2011 8:07 AM

    I would use the card to go to my son's Army bootcamp graduation.

    I would give the other card to my son... for him to use for a get-away before he goes to bootcamp.

    By CT on November 7, 2011 8:13 AM

    I would use it to get away for a night to the Oregon coast. Life has been pretty stressful in this economy and it's been difficult to get away from the pressure for even a night or weekend. I'd give the second one to my son and his partner and hope they would join the rest of the family for a mini-vacation.

    By leah falkowski on November 7, 2011 8:17 AM

    First off I'd use the $250 Best Western travel card for a trip to DC to help my best friend plan her wedding and to take some new family photos for them while I was down there!

    I'd then give HER the other $250 card so that her and her fiancee (or husband depending on when they use it!) could use it as a little get-a-way to of COURSE come to Buffalo and visit ME! :)

    By Lauren on November 7, 2011 8:24 AM

    I would use the card to drive to see my sister in Boston and we could go to Cape Cod.

    Then I'd give her the card so she could take a road trip to come see me!

    By Susie Nixon on November 7, 2011 8:26 AM

    I would use the opportunity to escape the bitterly depressing, dark, frigid temperatures of the Canadian winter to visit the beautiful, historically rich, elegant architecture of the southern U.S. in pursuit of discovering for myself if 'southern charm/hospitality' & 'southern gentlemen' really exist.
    I would gift the other card to my retired parents to offer them the opportunity to enjoy exploring another city, share adventures & make great memories there. I think it's important to shake life up from routines in a good way and continually invest in, rejuvenate etc. relationships. They are good people who deserve a little more fun in life. It would be a true pleasure for me to have a small part in enabling them to do so.

    By Monica on November 7, 2011 8:28 AM

    My husband and I would use it for a trip to the Napa Valley. Such beautiful countryside and interesting things to see. The gusher at Calistoga (and the fainting goats), there are regal wineries like Beringer - one that's a castle with a moat - one with Hayrides, plenty of cave tours and of course Sweeties Pies! haven't been back in a long time.

    We would use the other one to have our daughter and her boyfriend join us!

    By Jimmy K on November 7, 2011 8:29 AM

    I'd use the $250 to get away from the cold Buffalo weather and see Disney for the first time!

    I'd give the other my brother to help take his family to do the same thing.

    By Scott Higbee on November 7, 2011 8:33 AM

    Go to Vegas Baby,,,and give the gift to my best friend so she can go too...Weeeeee.!

    By Clint Monson on November 7, 2011 8:56 AM

    By SANDY on November 7, 2011 9:11 AM

    By Jackie on November 7, 2011 9:38 AM

    My son is 13 and has disabilities, but he enjoys Disneyland the most!

    I would use it to make it easier and possible for my fiancee and I to go on a honeymoon in the new year after we're married.

    I would give the other to my mom so that she can afford to come to and stay in Calgary for our wedding to help us out and be a part of our day.

    By Rachelle K. on November 7, 2011 10:53 AM

    Family road trip to go see my Dad during Thanksgiving weekend! My MIL would get the other card so she could get away too!

    I would gift the other card to my best friend in California. I haven't seen him for so long!

    By Cheryl Baker on November 7, 2011 12:12 PM

    I would go to stay at the BW Shelter Cove at Pismo Beach and visit my daughter who is a senior at CALPOLY! It's her last year and I love seeing her and the area. Then I would give the card to one of her high school friends that is returning this month from a two year stint in Afganistan serving our country. I would love to gift him the gift of a great weekend for all he has done.

    By Holly C. on November 7, 2011 12:44 PM

    By MD on November 7, 2011 3:54 PM

    I would gift a card to my husband so that he can feel he got some big prize, he also loves staying at Best Western and also this would motivate him to give us a holiday which we have not had in a long time.

    By Tracy on November 7, 2011 5:10 PM

    I would go to Niagara Falls for a weekend get away.

    I would give the other card to my Mother.

    By TH on November 7, 2011 6:10 PM

    I'd spend a couple of nights in a Best Western hotel near the Potomac River in the Washington, D.C. area. I'd give that $250 Best Western Travel Card as a gift to my nephew and his girl friend as a graduation gift!

    By Sylvia Cristina on November 7, 2011 6:28 PM

    I would visit my life time friend in Arizona. We both moved to different cities far apart and haven't seen each other for many yrs. It would be a wonderful seeing her.

    I would give second gift card to my husband for his retirement Jan 31, 2012. He would love to go to the Kentucky Derby next spring.

    By AL on November 7, 2011 9:05 PM

    I would take a weekend trip to Calgary or Edmonton, and shop at IKEA to furnish my new house. I might even take my sister since she loves going on road trips. I might even give her a Travel Card as a gift, and maybe she'll return the favor, and take ME!

    By Human Touch on November 8, 2011 12:13 AM

    Well if we won, we would give this prize away to one of our fans that has chronic pain. We have so many fans that live in pain everyday and a little bit of relaxation would do wonders for them!

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?"
    My husband has been out of state for an entire month so he can be with his father as he is terminally ill. I would use a $250 Best Western Travel Card to go see him!

    By Renee Sirois on November 8, 2011 1:22 AM

    I would use the money for a trip to st petersburg to stay at the postcard inn. Its a really cool vintage retro hotel. I have never been to that t part of Florida so i cant wait to go by the ocean and pool.

    By M Werber on November 8, 2011 2:04 AM

    All the rooms at Best Western are super to stay in. The accommodations are always clean and comfy. There's no particular one to stay at, 'cause they're all good.

    I'd give the $250 Travel Card to my two sisters. One is caring for our 96-year old mother and the other is caring for our brother who's been in and out of hospitals for the past year. They both need a break and this would be great for them.

    I would use the GC to make a weekend visit to my daughter in college.

    I would give the GC to my sister for a weekend getaway for her and her family.

    By Lori Z on November 8, 2011 3:36 AM

    I would take a drive up to the boston area and finally see the Fall foliage people have been talking about forever. The 4 of us would enjoy the road trip and a nive stay at #thebestwestern. It would be enjoyable and we'd probably give the other one to our parents so they could relax down the shore for a few days! Much needed R & R for everyone!

    By Krystel S. on November 8, 2011 3:50 AM

    I would use the first card for our road trip to NY coming up soon and the 2nd card I would give to a lucky reader on my blog as a thank you .

    By Eric Berard on November 8, 2011 4:21 AM

    I would gift them to a family member that is in need. I come from a very large family. I am the youngest of 10 children. We are all adults now and have children of our own now, however, a gift like this would allow one of my older sisters to git away for a night or to. she deserves a break.

    By Sherri Jones on November 8, 2011 4:44 AM

    I would give one to my daughter who is away at college so she could use it to come hone for the holidays.

    By Mary Ellen on November 8, 2011 5:01 AM

    I'd pick a Best Western in a fun location and enjoy myself.

    I'd give the other card to my sister so she can do the same.

    By Judy Bradley on November 8, 2011 5:14 AM

    I would use it so I can go visit my grandchildren. I have several children and grandchildren who live 1200 miles away - too far for me to drive without stopping over any more. I can't always afford it and sleeping in the car isn't really safe. So this would be wonderful!
    I would give the second one to one of my sons and his family to use so they can come visit! They live far away in another direction!

    By Susie Duarte on November 8, 2011 6:07 AM

    I have a 16 yr old son who is on a breathing machine...since birth. His father & I take care of him round the clock. A nurse watches him while we work. We have not been outside of Texas ever as a couple. I went as a child and so did he. I would love to give a card to my husband so we can have some time together alone without our children..just for a couple of days. I may even sneak in a marathon while on our trip and some live music!!!!!! Our children ages 12, 16 & 20 would be very happy for us if we had this opportunity. Thank you!

    By betty rood on November 8, 2011 6:15 AM

    I would use this for the Holidays when we go and visit our family in Texas, that is about 7 hrs. away. We haven't been able to travel this yr., so the hotel card will truly help.

    I would give the second card to my parents who is desperate need of a vacation as well.

    By Brenda on November 8, 2011 7:18 AM

    Years ago I took a trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and I've always wanted to go back and spend more time there. I'd use the card to take a trip back there and revisit the places I loved and find new favorites.

    I'd give the other card to my parents. Because of my mom's work schedule they have trouble planning long trips, but I know they'd love to take a weekend getaway!

    By Sayuri on November 8, 2011 8:18 AM

    If I had a $250 giftcard to best western, I'd have to go out to some new place that I haven't been to before in the continental US, just to gain a little more perspective.

    With the other giftcard I'd have to go ahead and give that to a random family in a shelter or someone from the homeless shelter, so that they could have a place to stay if only for a couple of days. I hope that they'd pay it forward...

    By Amanda Long on November 8, 2011 10:21 AM

    I would use the card to take my boyfriend on a trip to Wrestle Mania in April. He has always wanted to see it live. I Would also give one of the cards to my mother so she can come with us as well to shop for new clothes.

    By Xing on November 8, 2011 10:28 AM

    By Lisa Grassetti on November 8, 2011 12:21 PM

    * "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?" I would use my card on my next vacation for a trip to Florida.


    * "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?" I would give a Best Western Travel Card to my older sis she goes on trips at least 4 times a year and this would help her out.

    By Rachelle Channel on November 8, 2011 2:15 PM

    If I had a $250 Best Western Travel Card I would take my husband and girls somewhere awesome for christmas, southern california to Magic Mountain and Disneyland.

    I would give a $250 Travel Card as a gift to my son and daughter in law who are stationed at 29 Palms Marine Corp Base, so they could have a getaway from the kiddos and enjoy some alone time.

    By Cynde Geymont on November 8, 2011 4:01 PM

    I would use a Best Western gift card to have a fun family weekend.

    I would give a gift card to a family that is homeless so they could spend some time off the streets.

    By Stephanie on November 8, 2011 4:50 PM

    My Husband returned from Afghanistan about a year ago. We didn't have a chance to take a vacation, the two of us, alone. I would use this opportunity to spend quality time together.

    By Patti-J0 Matz on November 8, 2011 5:08 PM

    I would find a family in need, which isn't hard to find these days and give them a holiday.

    By Lisa Childers on November 8, 2011 5:28 PM

    I would use mine for a trip for mine & my husband's 33rd anniversary coming up later this month.

    I would give one to my older sister who has not able to go anywhere for several years after her husband left her for someone else.

    By Kim Cuevas on November 8, 2011 5:32 PM

    I would use it to have a weekend getaway that my husband and I need! And I would give the other card to my mom sister in law who needs a little time away herself.

    By Kelly on November 8, 2011 8:21 PM

    One card for me and one for my fiance. We would go back to the Best Western Normandy in Minneapolis and go to a Minnesota Vikings game! We had a great time at that hotel a few years ago. It was right in the heart of the city and within walking distance to the Metrodome and the train to the Mall of America.

    By cluelessmama on November 9, 2011 1:02 AM

    If I were to win a $250 BW gift card, I would take a trip with my family to the ocean. Since we live in Colorado, they never get to see the ocean. I would give the second gift card to my mom and dad so they could come with us on the trip. It would be great to have us all there as a family.

    By Jonez on November 9, 2011 1:05 AM

    I heard Savannah and New Orleans is absolutely beautiful during the holiday season. I'd use my gift card to visit the area, take part of the magic, and believe in Christmas all over again.
    As for the other card, I'd give to my brothers. They rarely travel (and seem OKAY with that.) I'd want them to see there is more to the world than the corner house on our block where they have grown up since birth.

    By Terra Heck on November 9, 2011 1:06 AM

    I'd use it to spend the night with my husband as a mini-getaway. We don't get much alone time together and it'd be refreshing for us to go somewhere a couple of hours away to spend the night and see the sights. I'd get one to my cousin who I haven't seen in a couple of years so she could some my way and visit with me and stay in a Best Western hotel. Thanks.

    By MISH PRYOR on November 9, 2011 3:30 AM

    I would use the card to go to Chicago or Minnesota. I could definately use the break since I recently lost my job. I would give the other card to my Dad because he works so hard and never has a chance to plan a get away, plus he deserves a break too. #TeamBestWestern

    By Kimberly K. on November 9, 2011 3:40 AM

    I would use the $250 Best Western Travel Card to take my oldest son, who is a senior in high school, on a college campus tour to the different universities that he is considering attending next year.

    i would give the other card to my mom who lives over 600 miles away, so that she could drive up to visit us and take her time by using the card to stay at Best Western on the way up here and back home.

    By John B. on November 9, 2011 3:50 AM

    I would use one card for myself and give the other one to my sister who visits her daughter in college in the midwest. I will use my card to visit an old friend who moved closer to me, within a few hundred miles.

    By Charles McCool on November 9, 2011 4:13 AM

    I would use my gift card (thank you!) to stay in BW properties so that I could visit my mother, brother, and sister.

    I would give a card to someone who has been without a job for a long time, wants to move, and could use the card to stay in a hotel for a few days to look for work and a new home in a better area of the USA.

    By Julia Davis on November 9, 2011 4:52 AM

    If I had a $250 I would use it to travel to a half marathon race and take my friends to run with me.
    As for the gift, my mom who and dad who are retired. I would love to help them travel more in their retirement.

    By Pam Shumate on November 9, 2011 4:53 AM

    A $250 BW card would allow me to go to Virginia and spend the holidays with my dad.I haven't seen him in 3 years and to be able to spend Thanksgiving or Christmas with him would be the best gift I could ever receive.Gas is so expensive and it's just not possible to afford gas and pay for a place to stay.Winning the card would allow me to be able to take my kids and grand-kids so we pay for a place to stay and be together.It would be the best Holiday ever.

    By frances a. on November 9, 2011 5:14 AM

    I'd plan a weekend trip down to portland (our favorite long weekend destination) and I'd give the second card to my mom to use on her trip down to visit my sister and her new baby

    By Denise on November 9, 2011 5:21 AM

    I would use it to visit family out East. I am not able to stay with them as there are cats in the homes and I am very allergic. I don't have the extra money to stay at a hotel so this would give me the opportunity to visit and then have a great place to stay at in the evenings.

    I would give a certificate to my best friend and then we could use it at The Lodge on Lake Detroit - a Best Western Premiere property here in Minnesota!

    By Jackie Dishner on November 9, 2011 5:28 AM

    I'd use the Best Western Travel Card for a road trip to New Mexico to see what my neighbor state is doing for its Centennial in 2012, the same year Arizona has hers. I'd use the second card for another road trip; I write about them for a living.

    By Jennifer Folker on November 9, 2011 5:38 AM

    I would use them to make a road trip home for Christmas!

    By Paul Folker on November 9, 2011 5:40 AM

    I would take my family back home over the holidays.

    By Katrina on November 9, 2011 5:58 AM

    I would take my family on a mini vacation as we have never had a family vacation. We started saving and then I was injured. My family and I had to wait 4 very looong years for me to finally be able to contribute financially for my family. We lost pretty much everything including our lovely home.
    My family would love a little vacation!

    I would give the other card to my dearest oldest friend that I have known forever it seems. He and his mother are elderly and I believe he and his mother deserve something special or a mini vacation as well.

    Good Luck to all, hope someone really deserving of this prize wins!

    By Beth Hill on November 9, 2011 6:06 AM

    I would use the one for our annual Thanksgiving trip 10 hr drive from home, we need a hotel for the 4 of us in my family to stay for 3 nights and would love to choose the Best Western. We have made this trip for the past 20 years and will continue to make it every year.

    I would give the other one to my oldest sister who would not be able to afford a hotel anywhere right now. This would be an incredible Christmas gift for her!

    Thank you for the chance.

    By Shari Lynn Alligood on November 9, 2011 6:07 AM

    Oh how nice it'd be to win a gift card of that amount to use when I visit my parents on our trip home to Missouri & I'd have to share the other one with my mom so she can go take a few day trip away with her & my dad.

    By Shannon S on November 9, 2011 6:10 AM

    I would use one when we go visit my inlaws and would save the other to give to them when they come to visit us. :)

    By Betty N on November 9, 2011 6:13 AM

    I would use it when I travel to Wisconsin which I do a few times a year (grown kids live there) and the other I would give to my daughter who likes to travel but is broke.

    By Amanda L on November 9, 2011 6:33 AM

    I would go to LaGrange, Ga. to visit family for Christmas and then come back to Spartanburg, SC. to visit my parents and friends during the Christmas holidays. The second card I would give to my daughter to go to Gatlinburg for Christmas with her boyfriend and friends.

    By Ben on November 9, 2011 6:39 AM

    I would go to Denver/Boulder Colorado, which is the one state i have always wanted to visit and have not seen. As far as the second card goes, my dad has been a travelling medical equipment salesman since before i was born 25+ years ago. He's a road warrior and would definitely appreciate a nice stay at BW!

    By Valerie Arnold on November 9, 2011 6:48 AM

    We are planning on moving from Florida to North Dakota and winning this gift card would ease the financial burden of the move by allowing us to stay at Best Westerns along the way. I would give the other gift card to Thomas Hoffmaster as he is also moving and it would ease his burden as well.

    By Catherine Bradford on November 9, 2011 7:07 AM

    I would take my husband on a much needed vacation to Florida and give the other to my daughter who works so hard and never gets to take a vacation.

    By Dan R on November 9, 2011 7:46 AM

    I would head to Europe and use the gift card since the dollar seems to be strengthening

    By Tom on November 9, 2011 8:00 AM

    I live in the Midwest, and have just applied for my dream job--am simply a perfect fit for it, but it's halfway across the country. With this card, my wife and I can both fly to the West Coast for the interviews. I would give the second card to my daughter, so that she could follow us out there and look for a job for herself.

    By Erin (@misselj) on November 9, 2011 8:49 AM

    I would use Both of the cards. One for me & one for my husband. We got married in 2009 and still have not had a honeymoon. It would be a blessing to finally be able to take one and spend some quality time together, alone without our kids. :)

    By Arafat Islam on November 9, 2011 9:02 AM

    I am going to Turkey on a vacation and would use it at a Best Western hotel in Istanbul.

    Since, my parents are also traveling with me to Istanbul so, would give the card to them and, they can use to pay the hotel; therefore, all three of us getting the benefit.

    By Damon Jacobs on November 9, 2011 10:20 AM

    It would make a great present for my Mom who is always traveling.

    By JoeyfromSC on November 9, 2011 11:04 AM

    If I won the card, I'd use it towards airfare to fly to visit my 2 brothers, whom I raised after our Mom died, living out in Hollywood, CA

    Thank you for the chance!

    By JoeyfromSC on November 9, 2011 11:06 AM

    IF I won, I'd gift this to my brothers to put towards airfare so they could fly to be with me this holiday season :) lol

    Thanks again for the chance!!

    I do a fair amount of traveling, so I would definitely make quick use of it.

    I would probably give the $250 to my parents as a gift.

    By Toni Moore on November 9, 2011 11:57 AM

    Hi! I would use the Best Western gift card to take my little guys to Orlando for Christmas!!! I'd give the other card to my Mother-in-law so she can have fun with her grandkids, without bugging me to death, lol!!! Thank you so much for the chance! Disney or bust!!! :D

    By Brian L on November 9, 2011 12:24 PM

    I would use the gift card to go and see my sister who I haven't been able to see in quite a while because I haven't had much of an income lately and I'd give her the other gift card so she could come and see me!

    By shauna on November 9, 2011 12:58 PM

    i would like one for my family to go to cali. and see ALL of our family.


    i would give the second one to my boyfriends mom for her wedding

    By Marina Papastathakis on November 9, 2011 1:05 PM

    I would use it to see my mom out of the province.

    I would give it to a homeless woman.

    By David Riddles on November 9, 2011 1:22 PM

    I would use a $250 gift certificate on our family holiday in Orlando.

    I would give a $250 gift certificate to my niece. She just married an American and moved to the US. They have so many people visiting them I think they could use a little escape holiday.

    By Grace Papaseraphim on November 9, 2011 1:38 PM

    If I used it myself I would take my family away for the weekend to Washington, D.C. We haven't been in years and so much has changed.

    If I gave it away, I would give to my sister. She's been sick lately and could use a good long weekend away!

    Thanks for the contest!!!

    By Chris Bradley on November 9, 2011 1:38 PM

    I would take my family to Disneyland with a $250 Best Western Travel Card!

    I would give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift to my in-laws so they could go to Disneyland with us!!

    By Robert on November 9, 2011 1:38 PM

    I live in New York, but most of my family lives in California. Every year we have a reunion somewhere in the vast expanse between us, and this year I'm hoping for Las Vegas. I'd use one for me, and give the other to my sister.

    Best Western, help me out! I'm going to need every penny I got for those quarter slots.

    By Stephanie R on November 9, 2011 1:41 PM

    My husband and I are working to complete our goal to see all 50 states. We'd love to use this card to work toward that goal in the new year. (We're a little more than halfway there!)

    I'd give the other card to my parents. My mom is just finishing up her radiation treatments and it would be really great for them to celebrate with a vacation!

    By Joelle Diamond on November 9, 2011 1:43 PM

    I stay at Best Western's a lot because I travel all over the country to dog shows. I'd share a card with my best dog show buddy. BYW, Best Western thanks so much for being pet friendly!!!

    By Kathy Hanley on November 9, 2011 1:45 PM

    I would use the card to plan a short trip over the Christmas Holiday into New York City or somewhere like Baltimore, Maryland or Washington, DC where I could spend the holiday in a bustling city! I would gift the other card to my mother so she could come with my family and stay in her own room. Last year, we lost my sister to heart disease and prior to that two of my brothers passed because of heart disease. The holidays are very depressing remembering those who are no longer here and we need to keep busy and start making some new memories.

    By Karen Williams on November 9, 2011 1:46 PM

    If I won a BW $250 gift card I would use it to on a road trip for our vacation this summer. We are planning on just getting in the car and driving wherever our fancy takes us. I'm a big planner so this will be something completely new.
    I would give the other card to my daughter who just graduated university and is taking a year off before she starts again.....working for most of the year but planning on touring parts of Europe for two months before starting her graduate studies.

    By Andrew Jackson on November 9, 2011 1:49 PM

    We are in the process of planning our roadtrip honeymoon next June from San Fran to Las Vegas via LA.

    I would give a giftcard to the in laws for letting me have the hand of their daughter.

    By freddie on November 9, 2011 1:56 PM

    wow a $250 best western card would take some of the financial stress off visiting my daughters in oklahoma at christmas. It costs so much to travel now a days..


    I would give one to someone in the armed forces that has served in another country to be used at their disgression..

    By Kenny on November 9, 2011 1:56 PM

    NYC vacation!

    Gave one to my bro.

    By Julie A. on November 9, 2011 1:57 PM

    I'd use my gift card for a special road trip weekend away for our family. We'd go to Vancouver and check out the Aquarium and Stanley Park, go to the ocean and play at the beach, then maybe experience some exciting and delicious ethnic food!

    I'd give the other gift card to my friend Leah, who also has a young family so that they could plan a little getaway too!

    By Jamie V on November 9, 2011 2:01 PM

    I would use the Best Western gift card to take a weekend vacation with my family to a ski destination in the winter.

    I would gift a Best Western gift card to my sister for Christmas so she could take a weekend away with her friends.

    By Brenda Sigmon on November 9, 2011 2:03 PM

    I would use the $250 gift card to take my husband on a weekend getaway somewhere because we recently lost everything in the flood and believe he deserves a weekend away because hes been working very hard to recover what we lost. The other one I would give to my sister who takes babies and children off the street.

    By Gar on November 9, 2011 2:08 PM

    That card would encourage me to take a trip as part of a holiday I still have not taken this year and to visit our son and family that we had not seen in a long time.
    I would give the other card to my wife and she would be so happy too for me to be started on a holiday and this would even give her a paid few nights for an extended stay since she loves staying at Best Western!

    By Jacob on November 9, 2011 2:10 PM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?"
    Go on a vacation with my wife and leave the kids with someone else!


    "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?"
    My in-laws to thank them for all their help!

    By Ray on November 9, 2011 2:17 PM

    I would take the love of my life my wife to "Graceland". She is a huge Elvis fan and has yet to see "Graceland". Staying however many days at the Best Western Executive Inn at 3105 Millbranch rd in Memphis I could get with the $250. I would let her visit Graceland everyday we were in Memphis if she wished. She is a wonderful wife and mother and I know she would enjoy it. I would give the other card to our son. He "finalley" got a job that is related to the degree he went to college for after searching 3 years, The job is 65 miles from home and sometimes he is exhausted after work and I dont like him driving home. He could stay over at Best Western.

    By Huguette E. on November 9, 2011 4:34 PM

    Hubby and I are way over due for a date night, so I'd keep it and take him somewhere overnight.

    By linda brooks on November 9, 2011 4:38 PM

    I would use it for vacations or I would give it to my sister.

    By Jay Hawk on November 9, 2011 6:11 PM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?" I'd use it for a vacation in Florida.

    "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?" I'd give it to my baby so we could make it a longer vacation.

    By Mitch on November 9, 2011 8:29 PM

    I have not seen my brother for 4 years now. He is getting out of the Marine Corps after fearlessly serving our country. Right now he is stationed in North Carolina and I live in Minnesota. I would use one of the Best Western Travel Cards and give the other to my brother so we can have a very enjoyable experience and stay at Best Westerns during our bonding experience when I go to bring him back home! Thank you Best Western!

    By conrad on November 10, 2011 12:54 AM

    I would use the card for myself to take a trip to Victoria.

    If I won a second $250 Gift Card, I would give it to my sister so that she could come with me.

    By Fawn Simpson on November 10, 2011 3:30 AM

    I would use the gift when I travel for my races. I'm an ultra distance runner that loves a few small comforts when I'm traveling. BW is great at providing a comfy place to sleep and a nice hot shower at the end of a long day on the trails.

    I would give the second gift to either the Rockdale Christian Services to help when a family, going thru hard times, needs a place to stay for a night or two. Or I would give it to another runner that can't travel because of the hotel expenses. It would not go unused, that's for sure.

    By Angela T on November 10, 2011 4:48 AM

    I would use the Best Western Travel Card for a mini vacation to visit friends I haven't seen in years.
    I'm originally from Michigan, I haven't been home in over 20 years. That's a long time not to go back home. It would be so great to re-connect with everyone.

    The second Best Western Travel Card - I would give to my parents. They are retired. It's been really rough for them lately. It would be a real treat for them to go away.

    By JulieD on November 10, 2011 4:52 AM

    I would use it to take a nice weekend vacation! Maybe New Orleans or Washington DC!

    The other one would go to my Mom, she deserves a vacation! She works so hard and doesn't do a lot for herself.

    By Candy Olivares on November 10, 2011 4:54 AM

    I would use a gift card to stay Best Western when we travel from Florida to Texas in March. We have a new baby and that's a long trip to do in one day, so we'd break it up by staying in an awesome Best Western room.

    I would give the other card to my friend Nora. Her and her family are staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Houston while their daughter recovers from a liver transplant. It would be a very nice gesture to offer them this gift so that they can have a small get away from the recovery process and just be a family "on vacation."

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    By Tammie Simwamu on November 10, 2011 4:57 AM

    OMG....need you ask...take my boys to West Edmonton Mall so we can all have some fun. Our stompin grounds is always the Best Western Cedar Park Inn

    By Stephanie on November 10, 2011 4:57 AM

    I'd use mine for a stay at the Oregon coast. The winter storm watching is fun ~ an excuse to snuggle in by the fire and watch the wind and waves.

    I'd give the second card to our friends Bob and Kat, who just got married and are flat broke. They really deserve a honeymoon. Bob painted our house in exchange for a wonderful diamond ring for her. Finding love over 40 needs to be celebrated!

    By Loraine S. on November 10, 2011 7:42 AM

    If I had a $250 gift card I would use it to take my best friend to the one place she has always wanted to go. Disneyland or World she says she is not picky. She is 43 and deserves it more than anyone I know. She is on the verge of relief after yrs of severe pain due to a car wreck injury. In spite of her pain she is always thinking of other people before herself and she needs to be thought of first for once.

    If I had a gift card to give away I would give it to my my sister she has always been there for me even when my decisions are not the greatest. She is always taking our 80 yr young mother of 13 children on trips all over the place. I think it would be great to be able to cover the rooms for the both of them on one of those excursions.

    By Pam Shumate on November 10, 2011 7:56 AM

    Winning a $250 would allow me to take my kids and grand-kids to Virginia to spend Thanksgiving with my Father..whom I haven't seen in 3 years.We haven't spent the Holidays together with the whole family since 2005.My Mother also passed away and was laid to rest there.With me being in Alabama the distance between here and Virginia makes it so difficult to visit my Mom's grave.My kids haven't got to go back since her passing in 2003 .. I have been able to make 2 visits since then.These cards would make it possible to take my kids and grand-kids and we would all be able to stay together and share the joys of the Holiday with my Dad who means everything to me.I miss my Mom so much this time of year and placing a decoration on her grave for Christmas is something I've never gotten to do.Being able to afford gas and a motel room just isn't possible with gas prices these days.Winning this would make for a very special Holiday season for my entire family.

    By Kris M on November 10, 2011 11:35 AM

    I would use one gift card for a warm stay in a southern state while attending a NASCAR race.

    I would give the other on to my parents, so they can also go some place warm, since they haven't been able to go on a vacation this year, because they had to take care of my ailing grandparents.

    By Heather on November 10, 2011 6:59 PM

    I would use the gift card to travel to visit my family and stay at your hotel and I would give the gift card to my parents so they could come visit me :).

    By Reggie Lim on November 10, 2011 7:27 PM

    I'd use the card for travelling out of town to see family.

    I'd give the other card to my Mom who travels alot :)

    By S on November 11, 2011 12:08 AM

    I would use this card to travel to Calgary for the Calgary Stampede in 2012. I have been meaning to go for the past 4 years and due to work/school have never had the chance. Would really like to explore Canada should I win.

    If I had one gift card to give away, I would give it to my mom and take her to the Stampede as well.

    By Costana H on November 11, 2011 12:10 AM

    I would take my son on his first vacation with a $250 Best Western Travel Card and I would give the other $250 Best Western Travel Card to my Father in Law!

    By jessica marinaccio on November 11, 2011 12:30 AM

    Id give one to my mom and keep one for me - so we can visit each other. My mom rarely gets to come see us because we live so far away and our house is small even if she came we dont have enough room

    By Amanda F on November 11, 2011 1:07 AM

    I would take my son (and family) to a hotel so that we can have a pool day. He loves to swim and using the gift card will let us take a mini vacation.

    I would give the other gift card to my husband's parents. They haven't taken a vacation in years and so need one. my mother in law is having health issues and a getaway would help her take her mind off of things.

    By EFJX on November 11, 2011 7:47 AM

    I would go visit zion/bryce and canyonland with a stop in las vegas.

    I'd give my best man the other card so we can make this a group road trip.

    By Jia on November 11, 2011 8:09 AM

    I'd like to use the gift card to take a trip up PCH.

    I'd give the other card to a good friend of mine.

    By Mary Jo Koepsell on November 11, 2011 9:12 AM

    We are planning a trip next fall to Montana and Wyoming. I would use it for our stays there.

    By Wayne Allen on November 11, 2011 6:43 PM

    I would use it to take my wife on a nice trip.

    I would give a card to my wife who would be with me.

    By Susan Allen on November 11, 2011 6:46 PM

    I would take my hubby who has been recently diagnosed with cancer on a short trip to relax.

    I would give the card to my husband.

    By Maria S. on November 11, 2011 8:56 PM

    I would love to give it to my parents as a belated 25th anniversary gift, I'm sure they would really enjoy it, especially this holiday season!

    By Thomas on November 11, 2011 11:18 PM

    I would give them both away. One to my wife, to pick wherever she wanted to go for the weekend, hopefully at a Best Western with a hot tub & the other to my mom & dad. My father just started kidney dialysis & needs something to cheer him up. He can travel on the weekends & I'd like to encourage him to do so.

    Thanks for this opportunity! Love BW!

    I would spend the $250 Best Western travel card at the Best Western Blue Sea Lodge Hotel where I have always wanted to stay in San Diego Pacific Beach.

    I would give the $250 Best Western travel card to my girlfriend who travels a lot.

    By Laura Lemons on November 12, 2011 12:31 AM

    I would use my card to visit my best friend that lives in New Orleans. I would gift the other card to my fiancee, so we could combine them together for our stay in New Orleans. He and I reunited last year. We used to date in high school. My best friend and her husband hasn't met my fiancee yet. My fiancee hasn't ever been to New Orleans or really many places at all. We all would love to see him enjoy a vacation to a place he has never traveled to and would show him all the places in New Orleans. We could take him to some great restaurants and show him all the interesting places there plus he would meet my friends at the same time. It would be a very enjoyable trip and to know that we could stay longer with the two Best Western cards would really help us out so much.

    I would use a $250 Best Western Travel Card to take my mom on a nice getaway anywhere she would want to go. Also I would give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to my grandparents because every time they go out of town they always have to come home the same day because they can never afford to stay somewhere.

    By saminder gumer on November 12, 2011 1:35 AM

    i would use the gift card to take my wife and kids on a well deserved break from our daily life. i would also use it to go some place that our family can get away and a place that we have not gone.

    i would give the other one to my parents because they have done so much for me and my sister because they have given so much for us and given up so much time and effort for us and missed so many vacations, breaks and other things for us that they need and deserve a vacation and break.

    By jea smith on November 12, 2011 4:01 AM

    By Rose Vegter on November 12, 2011 4:08 AM

    We would visit relatives in another state.

    I would likely gift it to someone who could not afford the price of a motel
    room on top of other traveling expenses.

    By sue14625 on November 12, 2011 4:20 AM

    I would give it to my sister, I owe her a lot so this would be a nice gift to give!

    By Kathleen McNamara Davis on November 12, 2011 9:30 PM

    I would use the $250 gift card in April of next year to take a little trip for my husbands 60th birthday.


    I would give the other $250 gift card to my sister Sharon. She has stage 4 cancer. She has been fighting this illness for many years. It would be awesome to let her & her wonderful husband Kevin have a little get away.

    By Brianna Beers on November 13, 2011 12:08 AM

    I would use one to visit my long lost family in PA and Id give the other card to my oldest son so he could have his own room while we visited since hes so independant!
    Thankyou for this chance to possibly reconnect with far away family members!

    By joy person on November 13, 2011 12:28 AM

    My husband deploys in less than 2 months and our daughter and I are moving in with family. We have to drive from California to Washington State so I would use it for lodging since we'll probably be making at least 3 overnight stops. I love going on road trips but this time we'll be in seperate cars because we don't want to store either car for a year. So we'll be spending double the amount on gas than normal so winning this would help out a lot and we've always stayed at Best Western and loved it.

    By joy person on November 13, 2011 12:31 AM

    With the second card I'd give it to my husband because after his block leave is over with he would need to get back to California to prepare for his year long deployment. I wish he wasn't deploying...God Bless the USMC and especially my husband.

    By Sarah L. on November 13, 2011 2:25 AM

    I would use the travel card to re-experience the california coast with my mother like we did when I was little. Because we both have such busy schedules and we rarely ever get to see each other this would be the perfect way for us to spend some quality time together like when i was a little girl.

    I would give the second travel card to my mom because she travels a lot for work and this would help her out a lot with the cost. She definitely deserves this.

    By Jennifer on November 13, 2011 2:47 AM

    and '
    one for my daughter and family so they could go too

    By Danielle T on November 13, 2011 3:34 AM

    The other one I would use as a "surprise" getaway for me, hubby, and the kids to go down and visit my Step-daughter in Oregon.

    By susan fabiano on November 13, 2011 3:40 AM

    I would use the gift card to go to Orlando to see disneyworld at Christmas and would give the other card to my sister to come down from NC to visit.

    By Laurie Thompson on November 13, 2011 4:39 AM

    My favorite Best Western is in Williamsburg, VA. I would you use the card there so I could visit my favorite historic sites.

    I would give the other card to my parents so they could have a nice weekend getaway

    By Kathleen M on November 13, 2011 5:56 AM

    What would I do with a $250 Best Western gift card? I would give it to my husband. He works in Maryland. The kids and I live in Florida. You know, the down turn of the economy and all. When he comes home he has to drive 16 hours, he usually will drive straight through.
    And he does this drive after working a physically demanding construction job. It would make my heart fell better if he could stop at a Best Western, sleep for the night, then drive the remaining 8 hours. He's been doing this for over 3 years. He began the job in Maryland when our son was 3 months old, our son is now 3 1/2.

    Now who would I give the other $250 Best Western gift card to? That's a tough one, but I'd probably give that one to my husband, too! We want him to stay safe when coming home and going back to Maryland. If by some wondrous chance he finds a job in Florida before the gift card is used up, then I would give it a family with kids that is homeless, so they could have a comfortable night sleep or 2. There are so many people down on their luck.

    By Tammy on November 13, 2011 7:56 AM

    I have two sons, one married and the other engaged. I would give each of the couples a card. Why? Simple. I love them all.

    By Manthan Raval on November 13, 2011 12:54 PM

    I'd use it on a trip to montreal.

    As for gifting, I would give the other giftcard to my parents. They need a break!

    By Michael Tobin on November 13, 2011 2:16 PM

    I would take my wife and daughter on a nice family getaway. It has been a long time since we have all went together on a vacation with this economy it has been tough.

    I would take my wife and daughter to visit my brother in law and family in Houston Texas, They have helped us out and visited us every year in Chicago. It would be nice to drive down from Chicago and stay in nice hotels in Houston or on the way.

    By Chris on November 13, 2011 6:20 PM

    I would love to take a road trip and just stop and a random Best Western for a great nights sleep

    By Chris on November 13, 2011 6:22 PM

    I would love to give my daughter and her new husband the winning GC so they could use it for a second honeymoon

    By Pam Hoffman on November 13, 2011 7:46 PM

    I would use one card to stay in the Best Western in Kirkwood, Missouri during Christmas to see my family and give the second one to my sister and her husband so they could stay in the room across from us!

    By Laura on November 14, 2011 12:25 AM

    I would use the first card for my hubby and myself so we could have a night off from being "Mom and Dad" and maybe we can remember what it was like to be "Laura and Mike." Love my kids...need a vacation, lol!

    The other gift card I would give to my mother, who hates to fly but wants to drive down to Florida to see the Salvador Dali Museum for her birthday. I know she's going to need to spend at least one night at a hotel along the way, since after all, she's coming from NY.

    Thanks for the contest!

    By Cindy Merrill on November 14, 2011 12:25 AM

    I would use the Travel card to visit my aunt in Bangor Maine.

    I would give the other card to my husband who goes to business/high tech science fairs regularly. He likes Best Western for business travel.

    By Bean on November 14, 2011 1:15 AM

    I would use it to go spend a day in Santa Barbara, CA. After a day downtown and at the beach, I'd pass out in a nice comfy room.

    I would give the other card to my mom, so she could have a nice place to stay the next time she's travelling.

    By Gayle on November 14, 2011 5:24 AM

    I would use the $250 card when we visit our son in Brooklyn. There's an awesome BW about a block from his apartment that we stayed in this past summer.

    I would give the other card to my son so he could take a trip next summer.

    By Jeri on November 14, 2011 5:26 AM

    I would give the second one to my dad who is celebrating his 80th birthday this month.

    By Eowynne on November 14, 2011 5:26 AM

    I would take a trip with my fiance to Morocco...we just got engaged last month! I've heard the Best Western in Marrakech is excellent.

    My gift would be to my mom who lives in Northern Ontario, so she could come visit us in Toronto.

    By Ralph on November 14, 2011 5:32 AM

    I would plan a trip along the Pacific coast of North America for me and my soon-to-be wife, stopping in at Best Westerns along the way.

    I would give the second card as a gift to our friends who are getting married in 2013, so they can travel together as newlyweds.

    By Michael Bellinger on November 14, 2011 5:36 AM

    My wife and I will enjoy some time away from home with a travel by truck trip to some remote Best Westerns to enjoy some peace and quiet. And appreciate what Best Western has to offer. I would give the other card to my younger sister because she is also a gypsy at heart and loves to travel and enjoy the world.

    By Ruth Spurr on November 14, 2011 5:39 AM

    I would use the card for us to go to see our grandchildren! I would give the other card to my Aunt who likes to travel also. $250.00 towards lodging would thrill her and help with her travel expenses.

    By allen verdick on November 14, 2011 5:39 AM

    I would take my wife for a mini honeymoon to vicksburg, ms. We never got a chance for a real honeymoon.

    If I had a chance to give a gift card to someone it would be my friend Mike, who never goes anywhere, so he could take his wife somewhere nice.

    By Shari on November 14, 2011 5:40 AM

    I would use my card to take my husband away to celebrate our 22nd anniversary weekend. Just the two of us for a spa trip away from all the hassles of home life leaving the 2 dogs and cat home for the rest of the family to care for.

    The other one I would give to my best friend who spends all of her time taking care of everyone else in her family and could use her own spa weekend away from everyone else.

    By Brian on November 14, 2011 5:40 AM

    What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?

    I'd take a nice vacation.

    Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?

    I'd keep it for myself


    By allen on November 14, 2011 5:41 AM

    I would take my wife on a long weekend to vicksburg, ms. She enjoys traveling and vicksburg is a historic town.

    I would give the second card to my buddy, Mike, so he could take his wife somewhere nice. They never seem to be able to get away.

    By Brian Dadey on November 14, 2011 5:42 AM

    I would travel to see my daughters who are in college more.

    I would share the card with my in-laws, who love to travel.

    By Steven Jones on November 14, 2011 5:44 AM

    I live in Missouri, and all of my family lives in Utah. I travel home for the holidays every other year or so, and I would use it while travelling home and back, so I didnt have to sleep at the rest stops in the middle of nowhere. I could actualyl have a nice warm bed, and feel rested for the second days drive. I would give the gift card to my girlfriend who loves to travel. She is a huge football fan, and Im sure a gift card would be just the right thing to get us to travel to a home game of her favorite team.

    By Philip Orestes on November 14, 2011 5:45 AM

    I would give one card to my father, who has just recently retired and is in need of a getaway for himself and his girlfriend.

    I would give the other to my mother, who is a nurse and is about to retire, and this would be her retirement gift.

    By Linda on November 14, 2011 5:47 AM

    I would use it for a dream trip to Norway, where the hotels are extremely expensive!

    I would share the other card with our adult daughter, so she could come with us.

    By Bill Ukrainec on November 14, 2011 5:48 AM

    My wife and I are planning a European vacation next year. The certificates would really come in handy. I would gift them to my wife as she is arranging the route.

    By Jeri L on November 14, 2011 5:49 AM

    I would use mine to take the boys to Orlando, FL.

    I would give the other one to my Mom so she can go visit her brother in Arizona.

    By Bill Ukrainec on November 14, 2011 5:51 AM

    We are planning a European vacation next yr. I would gift the certificates to my wife who is planning the trip.

    By Steven Jones on November 14, 2011 5:52 AM

    I live in Missouri, and my family is all in Utah. I travel home for the holidays every other year or so, and havent been home now in about three years. I would use the card to travel to and from Utah for the holidays. Usually I just stop at a truck stop, or rest area to grab a couple hours of sleep, but with the card I could actually stay in a nice warm bed and be fully rested for the second days drive.

    The Gift I would give to my girlfriend, who is a huge football fan. She has always wanted to travel to a home game of her favorite team, (Indianapolis Colts), and with this gift card it would be more feasable to do.

    By Kayla K on November 14, 2011 5:53 AM

    I would use one to help pay for the lodging for our holiday travel this year. We're having to stay at a hotel for the first time over the holidays, so it would be nice to have help with the cost!

    I would give the second one to my mom, as she is planning a vacation for next summer and is concerned about lodging expenses.

    By Luanne Lawler on November 14, 2011 5:54 AM

    My nephew deserves one. He ventured out on his own over a year ago and while it has been a struggle, he has proven us wrong by being able to support himself. He deserves a weekend break with one of them.

    And I would use the other to take trip to the beach. It's been a while since I have seen the ocean.

    By G. Carter on November 14, 2011 5:56 AM

    My wife and I would visit our two granddaughters who live in Boulder, Co.

    By Bill Dunn on November 14, 2011 5:56 AM

    My daughter has triplets, one in each of three different colleges. One in Pittsburgh, PA, One in Boston, MA. and one in Charlotte, NC. They are all involved in sports. I would gift one them to her to visit and attend a game and would use one for my wife and I to attend a game.

    By Carolyn on November 14, 2011 5:58 AM

    I would use it to a trip to Monterey, I absolutely love being there and relaxing!
    I would give my second one to my brother whose always been there to help me whenever I asked for his help! He enjoys Monterey as much as I do!

    By Harumi Krebsbach on November 14, 2011 6:00 AM

    I will be going on a cruise of the Mediterrenean next year and this would be a great place to stay before the cruise for me and my friend.

    I would give the other one to my daughter and her fiancee who will be going with us so that we could all enjoy this fabulous offer.

    By Tina on November 14, 2011 6:01 AM

    I would take my family to our favorite hotel Best Western River North in Chicago for a needed get away before my husband deploys to Afghanistan in Dec. He is our hero. SIncerely Tina K

    2. Give it to my wife who likes to travel

    By Bren on November 14, 2011 6:06 AM

    We would take our three grandson for a weekend away to give their Mom (our daughter) a break plus a fun time for us to spend with the boys.

    Our son has been at College for a year, he has worked hard and will graduate soon. He could do with a vacation before starting a job in his field.

    By eileen smith on November 14, 2011 6:09 AM

    By Jaime Zuker on November 14, 2011 6:13 AM

    I will give one (1) to Camp Pendelton Marine Base as gift, and will use the other one for me, to travel to San Francisco

    By Morley LaBelle on November 14, 2011 6:14 AM

    Now that my wife and I are retired, and are still extremely busy with our craft shop, we take three months off during the winter months and head south. Staying at the Best Western hotels and Best Western Plus hotels during our trip, is a guarantee to us that we will receive first quality service.

    The second Best Western gift card would be given to our children in order that they may share some relaxation 'down south' during the cold Canadian winters.

    By Brigitte on November 14, 2011 6:19 AM

    I would love to go to the Oregon Coast and stay at one or more of the many fine Best Western offerings, especially The Pier Point Inn, in Florence, OR.

    I'd give the $250 gift card to my sister and brother-in-law, who celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary this year!

    By Becca W on November 14, 2011 6:20 AM

    On 9-11-11 my son and daughter-in-law lost their stillborn baby boy.. His delivery was tender sweet. I would take them and our newest grandson's siblings on vacation, to help the healing process for all of us.

    By Donna Winters on November 14, 2011 6:21 AM

    Use it for one of our several trips we do each year travelling around on our motorycles and Best Western a biker friendly!

    By Sheila Scanlon on November 14, 2011 6:22 AM

    I would use the Best Western travel card to make a mid winter trip to Fargo, ND>
    It has a wonderful Best Western that we love to go to for a weekend away!
    I would give the other Best Western travel card to my parents so they too could
    enjoy a weekend away with my husband and I.

    By Jaime on November 14, 2011 6:23 AM

    By jaime on Nov 14, 2011 6:20 AM

    I will donate 1 to a needed serviceman in Camp Pendelton, Marine Base, Ca.

    Will use the other one to upcoming trip to San Francisco.

    By Becca W. on November 14, 2011 6:27 AM

    On Sept. 11, 2011 My son and daughter in law delivered a stillborn baby boy. They need a vacation. I would take their family, and enjoy a vacation to provide us all some much needed healing time.

    By Jaime on November 14, 2011 6:29 AM

    By jaime on November 14, 2011 6:30 AM

    I will donated 1 card to the local marine base.

    will use the other 1 to travel to San Francisco

    By Rick on November 14, 2011 6:30 AM

    With a $250 Best Western Gift Card I would take my wife on a shopping trip to Minneapolis and stay at the Best Western across from the Mall of America...she wouls like that so much!


    I would give the other card to my son and his wife so they could enjoy a weekend away somewhere.

    By Gary Sternaman on November 14, 2011 6:33 AM

    We are planning a trip up through the U.P. of Michigan, next August. Then we are coming back down through Wisconsin and staying in Milwaukee and visiting the Harley Museum and the plant. We are both retired and could use both of these cards on this trip, which is on our "Bucket List".
    Thanks.

    By Kevin Gontarek on November 14, 2011 6:34 AM

    My wife and daugther are living in Montana and I am working at a recruit Marine Base in CA. I only see them 3-4 times a year and we usually meet in Denver. This Christmas I will not be able to get to see them unless they drive down to CA (flights are just to expensive this year). This card would help with travel expenses and we could be together as a family for Christmas.

    The second card I would donate to one of our Marines/Families that are driving back home for Christmas. Most of these troops/familes only have a short amout of time off and they try to drive straight through to where they are going and this would help them split the trip up.

    By Michelle Simmons on November 14, 2011 6:35 AM

    I would use a $250 Best Western gift card to make a surprise visit to my hometown on Christmas weekend, using the money I would have spent on a hotel room to purchase Christmas gifts for friends and family.

    I would use the other $250 Best Western gift card as motivation for co-workers at the animal shelter I work. I would create a contest for them to increase the number of lives saved over the holiday season. The biggest lifesaver would earn a weekend getaway on me...and Best Western, of course!

    By jaime on November 14, 2011 6:35 AM

    by jaime on Nov.14, 2011 6:30 AM

    Will give one to the Salvation Army

    Will use the other one to say in Best Western in Las Vegas

    By Ann Hickman Podany on November 14, 2011 6:36 AM

    I would give this card to a victim of the floods that destroyed homes in southwest Iowa last summer.
    I would use the other gift card to relax in a warm climate.

    By Rachel on November 14, 2011 6:36 AM

    My little cousin is in the military and is serving overseas in Iraq. He has missed his birthday and Halloween, a previously planned trip to Nashville and is missing Thanksgiving and Christmas. When he gets home, we are taking him to Nashville for a weekend to celebrate. I would use a $250 Best Western card to stay at our favorite hotel in downtown Nashville, and would absolutely give him a card as well, so we can invite as many people as possible and do it up in style!

    By errolsmyth on November 14, 2011 6:36 AM

    Best hotel chain I have used, consistantly always good.
    I will use it in New Zeland, and give the otherr to my son for our holiday in New Zeland

    By Michelle M> on November 14, 2011 6:37 AM

    I would love to win a $250.00 gift card! I have 2 children playing rep. winter sports and we travel 2 or 3 weekends every month all winter! This gift card would be a huge help to us when playing in out of town games! I would give the additional card to my parents who will be travelling down south in January. This would help make their trip much more affordable! My fingers are crossed!

    By jean on November 14, 2011 6:38 AM

    I would use the $250 to stay in Anaheim and spend time at Disneyland in January. I would give the other card to my sister and her daughter so they could go too.

    By Sarah on November 14, 2011 6:39 AM

    If I won a $250 Best Western travel card I would use it to visit my best friend. She moved from Toronto to Halifax 5 years ago so her husband could finish his Master's degree and I have never been able to take a trip to see her. This would be the perfect excuse!

    If I could give a Best Western travel gift card to someone as a gift it would be my husband! Because everything has to be in the "budget" this would be the perfect way to get him to take a much needed vacation!

    By Michael Maynard on November 14, 2011 6:40 AM

    I am a raod warrior, so I would use the gift card to take a short vacation get together with my beautiful wife.

    I would give the other card to the Red Cross to use for someone who needs a place to stay.

    By Mallory Achord on November 14, 2011 6:41 AM

    I would use the $250 gift card to take my little family on a vacation we never had and most definitely need.

    I would give the other $250 to my grandparents who had always took me and my cousins on summer vacations.. it would be nice for me to be able to give them something like that back!

    By Gretchen Smith on November 14, 2011 6:41 AM

    I would use one card to see my son in Colorado and give one to my mom so she can visit my siblings in Indiana. Mom is 87 and hasn't been up north for several years.

    Use them for a winter trip to arizona.
    Would give them to my daughter

    By Pauline Campbell on November 14, 2011 6:43 AM

    I would take my husband on a driving trip to the east coast while he is still able to travel. He has always wanted to go and now that we have a mobility scooter for him, I believe we will be able to do it.

    By Frank S on November 14, 2011 6:45 AM

    My wife and I would visit my daughter who is in the Navy and I would give the other to my son so he could join us.

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?"
    I would find a fun, warm spot to travel, pack up the kids and enjoy a free stay courtesy of Best Western! They would be thrilled!

    "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?"
    Donate! We have wonderful charities in our area and I would be honored to help one them this holiday season via Best Western's giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!

    By Mike Edrington on November 14, 2011 6:46 AM

    Me and my wife have always wanted to take her mother to Gatlinburg. She has not been there since her husband passed away and with the prize it would be a Very nice Trip for her to go on. She does not drive and this would give her something to think about doing.

    I would give the second card to my neighbor because they have had a very hard time this year. They need a gift like this to let them know someone cares about them.

    By Clara Vize on November 14, 2011 6:47 AM

    I would give BOTH cards to my friend, Cathy. Her son is serving in Iraq, helping with security as the bases are being closed down. When he does return from duty, I would like to give her these gift cards so she can take a nice trip somewhere with him and her husband and other son.

    By stella meyer on November 14, 2011 6:48 AM

    My daughter and i travel to Cleveland every 6 months from New Jersey to visit the Cleveland Clinic. She is 26 years old and has a rare heart disease. We like to stay at the Best Western on Snow Road. The $250 gift card would be very helpful.

    I would give the other gift card to my daughter so she could go somewhere fun with it that does not involve doctors.

    By Carol on November 14, 2011 6:48 AM

    I would definitely go to the American Cocker Spaniel Summer National in St. Louis.

    I would give the other card to a family member who would like to travel but maybe can't afford to go very far.

    By KB on November 14, 2011 6:49 AM

    The gift card sure would come in handy for our road trip to western Canada next summer for my nephew's wedding.

    It would be a pleasure to give the Gift Card to my husband for a Christmas gift as we are both out of jobs at the moment.

    By Lorri Hornick on November 14, 2011 6:50 AM

    I would use the first card for the hotel room when my son takes a clinic to gain certification as a basketball coach. The second one I would give to my son to use for a much deserved vacation. Josh is an amazing son. During recent surgery he showed his maturity with the support he gave his mom. He is a wonderful son who is finally having some success with school. He works diligently at his studies, gaining very decent grades. He is a helping with the junior boys school team, has volunteered with the senior girls basketball school team and plays senior basketball. This is in addition to playing on the school badminton and soccer team. He also is actively involved in the school fundraising efforts. He will be taking a first level course to gain certification as a basketball coach and a refereeing clinic. These activities are all in addition to the normal activities and lifestyle of a 16 year old. Yes my son is only 16, but deserves the time away and has a loyality to the Best Western Gateway International located in Romulus Michigan. The staff are awesome and recognize my sons love of basketball. He loves the basketball court at this location, loves to joke with the staff and mom can still back and enjoy seeing him relax with a sport he loves.

    By ed on November 14, 2011 6:51 AM

    I would go to my favorite BW Place Ville de Marie Suites in Montreal.
    The other card I would give to my daughter for her honeymoon.

    By kb on November 14, 2011 6:53 AM

    The gift card sure would come in handy for our road trip to western Canada next summer for my nephew's wedding.

    It would be a pleasure to give the Gift Card to my husband for a Christmas gift as we are both out of jobs at the moment.

    By Dana on November 14, 2011 6:54 AM

    I would give the gift cards to my mother-in-law. She has breast cancer and where she goes for radiation treatments is 3.5 hours away. It will help her with hotel and gas expenses.

    By Arlyne Wood on November 14, 2011 6:55 AM

    I would give it to my son who has been deployed 5 times to be able to drive home and stay at your wonderful hotel.

    The other one I would use to go try and see him if he cannot obtain li berty to come home for Christmas.

    By theresa brewster on November 14, 2011 6:56 AM

    Hi,
    Planning a trip to Halifax in march and the gift card would be a great help, I always like to stay at the Best Western

    By rob on November 14, 2011 6:57 AM

    If I won a $250 gift card, I would use it toward a March trip to the states. After
    a long canadian winter, a break from the cold and snow is badly needed. I would probably go to Las Vegas, or Phoenix, where it's warmer.
    I of course would have to give it to my wife, because if I didn't share, I would

    My wife and I would travel to my son and girl's housse to help plan their wedding. They have ask help and it is difficult to do it long distance. Being there and putting in our 2cents may help them plan better.

    By J. M. Hunt on November 14, 2011 7:01 AM

    Happy Monday!!
    I'd love to take my "stunt double" with rhumatoid arthritis to our favorite Mountain Best Western in NC for a couple of days.
    The gift card would be good for my sister & her husband, who lost their only daughter to a grand mal seizure a few months ago.

    By Gary on November 14, 2011 7:04 AM

    I'd use it to take my family for a weekend getaway. I'ts been awhile since we've been away and it's time for a break to relax and re-energize.

    I've give it to my daughter. She's been out of work for a while and is having problems finding a job. She hasn't been able to afford to go any where and this would be an awesome surprise.

    By jacqui on November 14, 2011 7:04 AM

    I would use mine for my cross-country road trip from San Diego to Annapolis for the holidays and I would give the other to my husband for the return trip!

    By Barry on November 14, 2011 7:05 AM

    My wife and I would travel to my son's house and help him and his bride to be take some free time to do wedding plans. It is very difficult to do this with all other normal life chores that must be done.

    We would also have the chance to put in our 2 cents.

    By SK on November 14, 2011 7:06 AM

    It would be a great surprise for my husband who is an amateur landscape photographer. He has been dreaming about going to the desert in winter to take pictures and this would give him an opportunity to enjoy a warm night or two while achieving his long-time goal.

    By Geri on November 14, 2011 7:07 AM

    I would love to take my Grandchildren to Disneyland in the spring.

    By Karen Phillips on November 14, 2011 7:08 AM

    If I were to win the $250 gift card, I would stay at the best Best Western we've ever stayed at in St. George, UT. It was the nicest, most friendly Best Western we have ever had occasion to visit. The young staff people were so nice, the room was the best room we've ever stayed in anywhere in the U.S. Fantastic!


    I would gift my sister the $250 gift card. She has been through very emotionally trying times and a week-end away would do her wonders. She is so deserving, and has so little, it would be very uplifting to her spirits.

    By Carol Edwards on November 14, 2011 7:09 AM

    My husband and I are travelling to Southern California in the Spring to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We would save the card for this trip.

    By TRM on November 14, 2011 7:13 AM

    Give one to daughter for spring break getaway

    By David on November 14, 2011 7:16 AM

    A Best Western gift card would be the key to making this a family Christmas. We would use one Best Western gift card to spend Christmas in Calgary with Gramma Jean. We would give one Best Western gift card to Gramma Pam which would allow her to come to Calgary and spend Christmas with all of our families together, Grampa Joe and Poppa have passed on and in these tough times it sure would be nice for all of us to be able to get together again at Christmas.
    Thank you.

    By SharonT on November 14, 2011 7:17 AM

    We travel from Ontario Canada to Arizona every January & use Best Western hotels along the way, would be wonderful to use the Best Western Travel Card.

    By Becky D on November 14, 2011 7:18 AM

    Our 2 daughters have recently left the nest to conquer the world. Winning the Best Western Travel Cards would put my mind at ease that I could visit more often.

    I would share the experience with their Grandparents, so that they would visit their grandaughters in KC and NYC!!

    By Judi Glenn on November 14, 2011 7:19 AM

    If I won the two Travel Cards, I would invite a couple of my cousins to joint me at a Best Western on the Oregon Coast. My cousins Susan, from Union Bay, BC
    and Patti from Hillsboro and I from Coquitlam, BC aren't able to get together very often anymore and this would be a special surprise to celebrate our birthdays.

    Alternately I would give each of them a card and invite them to visit me in Victoria, BC.

    For the gift card I would donate to the Phoenix Childrens Hospital for parents who need a place to stay while their children are in the hospital

    By Annetta on November 14, 2011 7:27 AM

    I would give my sister this gift.

    By Dona on November 14, 2011 7:28 AM

    I would give one Best Western gift card to my son and daughter-in-law. With today's economy and five daughters to support, they are seldom able to enjoy a weekend to themselves. They certainly could use a getaway! They would be ecstatic and I would be so happy for them. The other gift card would be used to treat my husband to a weekend away at our favorite Best Western.

    By Melissa Sanchez on November 14, 2011 7:29 AM

    I would take my daughters on a surprise trip getaway.

    Thank you Best Western

    By Lisa Luksa on November 14, 2011 7:29 AM

    If I win the gift cards, I will go to the Lamplighter Inn in London, Ontario. It is about 4 hours from my home, but close to all my family. This hotel has an awesome pool and the atrium makes you feel like you are down in the tropics!

    I would give the gift cards to my step-daughter and her husband. They were married at the Lamplighter Inn in London, Ontario and it was fabulous! I think they would really like to go back for a little getaway and to remember their special day.

    By Dona F on November 14, 2011 7:30 AM

    By jackie renshaw on November 14, 2011 7:30 AM

    I am fullfilling a bucket list wish and traveling by car to Mexico. I have already saved and got a few of your travel cards for hotel stays so this would be a huge bous since I am on a tight budget. My oldest daughter has 3 kids and the new baby is not sleeping very much and mom is exhausted and frazzled. I would give her a room so she could sleep for hours in one of your comfie cuddlie beds.

    By walt on November 14, 2011 7:30 AM

    I would give it to my two children who really are just starting out with there familys and can not really afford to get out.

    By Jennifer Dixon on November 14, 2011 7:31 AM

    My step-mother passed away unexpectedly Sept 18, in northern Idaho. I live in southern Arizona, so I flew up to Idaho to assist my elderly, and chronically ill father back home to Arizona. We drove for 5 days (staying in Best Westerns). Then, I had to drive back up to his home for her memorial service in October (again staying at the BW). And this past week-end, I packed his home and moved him into an Assisted Living facility, as he has been in the hospital and rehab facility. I would love a get-away for "fun" and "relaxation."
    The other card I would share with my husband, who has been faithfully by my side assisting through all of the emotional and physical stress. He, also, deserves to have his wife smile again.

    By Nicky on November 14, 2011 7:33 AM

    For $250 I can afford a hotel for my stay in Cambridge, MA. There is a Best Western Plus there. I always want to visit Harvard University, MiT, Boston University, etc. Now that my friend/ex-roommate is living there, my desire to visit Cambridge is double.

    If I can give $250 gift card to anybody, I would give it to my best friend who help me go through a lot of obstacles in the past year. So she can travel anywhere and be able to afford a decent hotel. Because Best Western. which has many hotels in almost every cities, own by locals, I know somebody will look after her.

    By Dona F on November 14, 2011 7:33 AM

    I would give one Best Western gift card to my son and daughter-in-law. With today's economy and five daughters to support, they are seldom able to enjoy a weekend to themselves. They certainly could use a getaway! They would be ecstatic and I would be so happy for them. The other gift card would be used to treat my husband (and myself of course) to a weekend away at our favorite Best Western.

    By Jenni D. on November 14, 2011 7:36 AM

    The last family vacation we took was to DisneyWorld in May 2008. It was the best vacation we've ever had! Looking back, we are so thankful we were able to do it because six months later our 4 year old son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and the budget became much tighter. We would use this gift card to visit one of the many places we have on our "vacation wish list".

    I would give the 2nd gift card to my sister. She deserves a getaway more than anyone I know! In August, her 17 year old son gave up his fight with chronic illness. Up until then, she worked an average of 60 hours a week as the sole breadwinner of the family, in order to keep up with medical bills and day-to-day living expenses. She is still maintaining that work load, all grieving and being a mom to her adolesent daughter. I would love to be able to give her an excuse to slow down and relax.

    By Donald Bixler on November 14, 2011 7:39 AM

    My wife and I would use the card to travel to Omaha, NE, to her granddaughter's wedding which is to be in Council Bluffs, IA.

    I would give the other card to my son, wife and two children who live in Ohio for them to come visit us in Arizona. He and his wife work different hours in order to avoid child care expenses and they have not had a vacation for many years and have NEVER been to Arizona.

    By Edwin L. Petersen on November 14, 2011 7:40 AM

    My wife and I are planning a cross country trip in our 1928 Essex Roadster Pick up this summer with a planned stop at Gettysburg, Pa. This has been in the works for awhile and the Pick up is about ready for the road. After spending ten or so hours in a seventy-plus year old vehicle the comfort of your Inn's is about the only thing that makes it possible to get up and get on the road the next day.

    I would give the $250 card to my wife. Got to give here credit for putting up with my quirks and off beat travel plans.

    By Ed M. on November 14, 2011 7:40 AM

    I would probably drive or fly to Orlando Florida to visit friends. A gift card from Best Western would allow my wife and I to stay at some of the nice Best Western Inns in that area.

    I would give a $250 Best Western card to my son and his wife.

    By Jim D on November 14, 2011 7:40 AM

    I would use the card for a vacation for my wife and me to Myrtle Beach. We always head to the beach after Christmas and always stay at Best Western. This would allows us to help pay the cost for our vacation to our favorite destination and favorite hotel.

    I would give the card to my daughter so she could take a much needed vacation to reward her for the hard work she has done this past year and to show her how proud I am of her success.

    By George Perlingieri on November 14, 2011 7:41 AM

    if we won a $250 gift card, we would probably go over to the CA Central Coast and enjoy one of 4 Best Westerns there so we could enjoy the beach and the wineries around the area.

    We would probably give one of our kids the gift card so they could take the grandkids someplace fun. Maybe come see us.

    By Jim D on November 14, 2011 7:42 AM

    By Laurie on November 14, 2011 7:46 AM

    The card would be used on our next trip to Western Canada.
    A gift card would go to my sister, who would then think about going on a little adventure.

    By Maren on November 14, 2011 7:46 AM

    We would use the gift card to travel to see our grandchildren and great grandchildren in California. Being bed ridden for two years and now getting my llife back, we miss them terribly and would love to see our family again.

    We would give a gift card to the grandchildren so they could have a fun day on Grandma and Grandpa. . We've missed them.

    By John Turner on November 14, 2011 7:46 AM

    I would use my Best Western Travel Card on our upcoming trip to the Pacific Northwest. My rooms are already booked at Best Western. This would help pay for them.
    I would give my Best Western Travel Card to our daughter, her husband, and their three children as they are about to travel for the holidays to see his parents in Tennessee.

    By Liz on November 14, 2011 7:47 AM

    My kids have been wanting to go on a family vacation. I would give it to them and let them chose a place we can go to

    By CarolBB on November 14, 2011 7:47 AM

    I always book Best Western properties whenever my husband, Thom, and I travel anywhere, but, if I won the gift cards, I would take him on a road trip to New Mexico for our upcoming 12th Wedding Anniversary. Some BW's have in-room jacuzzi's and fireplaces. Pair that with a bottle of Dom Perignon, and the gift cards, and it'll be an anniversary we won't soon forget!

    By Jan Mc on November 14, 2011 7:48 AM

    I would give the card to my son to use in Louisiana for a 5-day/night Firefighting school he must attend in January.

    By Garth O'Neill on November 14, 2011 7:48 AM

    So many ways to answer these questions!

    We are big fans of the BW Travel Card. We have used them on many holidays, and to take our kids to university, as well as to numerous soccer tournaments.

    These ones I would use either for an upcoming trip my wife, 12 yr. old daughter and I are planning to Europe next year, OR for a trip we are planning to New York City later in the year - with my in-laws, to celebrate their 50th anniversary! (None of us have ever been there).

    The answer to the second question is really the same as the first - we'd give them to my in-laws, to use in New York City! We're already researching BWs in downtown New York!

    Thanks BW!

    By Steve L on November 14, 2011 7:49 AM

    The first one I would use to take my wife on a surprise trip to see our grandchildren, who live over 700 miles away.

    The second one might be given to one of our daughters (and her husband) that doesn't have much but woud love to get away for a few days.

    By Maren on November 14, 2011 7:49 AM

    We would travel to CA to see our grandchildren and great grandchildren. After being bed-ridden for two years I am getting my life back, and miss them terribly.

    We would give the card to the grandchidlren so they could have a fun day on Grandma and Grandpa

    By Stewart Mercer on November 14, 2011 7:49 AM

    I would give them to my son who is in the military who had a new son to bring him home and stop along the way and stay at Best Western for a more enjoyable trip home

    By Teresa H on November 14, 2011 7:50 AM

    I would use it for a mothers' weekend getaway. The gift card would enable our whole group to go without being concerned about finances.

    By Ann on November 14, 2011 7:50 AM

    We would love to take our son to see the Grand Canyon - this would help us to be able to start planning!

    I would give the other card to my husband, who has been remodeling our house for the past 2 1/2 years, and so deserves a nice vacation after all his hard work!

    By Tom S on November 14, 2011 7:50 AM

    I would happily use the gift card at our favorite Best Western for our indoor Track and field meets which happens about 4 times per season.

    Even though I would be using the gift card I would be technically be giving it to my daughter as she always feels guilty for spending so much money at hotels to go to her Track and Field meets. It would really make her feel better about going to compete.

    By Louise C on November 14, 2011 7:50 AM

    I would use the card for a vacation for my husband to Savannah Georgia. We had planned a vacation there several years ago when he fell and had a serious injury and we where not able to take that trip.

    I would give the second card to my daughter who has tried planning her wedding but there never seems to be enough money so maybe this would help with a night or two for her honeymoon.

    By Colleen Adams on November 14, 2011 7:51 AM

    If I won the Best Western cards, I would give one to my daughter for her to experience Best Western hospitality and to write about it in her travel blog.

    The other card I would use in my January trip to central California; I am speaking to several women's groups and would love the opportunity to have some retreat time before and after these presentations!

    By Laura s on November 14, 2011 7:51 AM

    I would take mom on a getaway. She lives
    In small town secluded, where it takes two
    Ferries to reach mainland. She has never
    Had the opportunity to travel due to health
    And financial issues. Her husband passed away
    After years of I'll health and she was the primary
    Caregiver. She needs some fun. A short trip
    Would be exciting for her. So my gift card would
    Be for mom

    By Irina on November 14, 2011 7:52 AM

    If I was lucky enough to win Best Western Travel Card I'd immediately book as many days as the travel card would allow me at the Grand Rapids, MI location (where Best Western hotel is by far my favorite place to stay in town).
    My husband is the one I'd be happy to give this card too (as his travel companion, that way I can still enjoy the benefits of it)
    Keep up a great job, Best Western!

    By Katherine on November 14, 2011 7:52 AM

    The first BW gift card I would give to my husband, his father was diagnose with aggressive cancer. This card would allow a few more days visit with his father.

    The second gift card I would give to myself. I would visit my daughter that lives furture away. At times I miss her so much that my heart aches, and a phone call is not the same.

    By L.D. Walker on November 14, 2011 7:53 AM

    I have a son in a rehab program and would use the card to cover expenses when we go for family days. we had to mortage our house to pay for the program so being able to cover nights stayes for family time would help a lot.

    I would give a card to my wife so thst went the above program is over we could take some time for our selfs and get away.

    By Charles S. on November 14, 2011 7:53 AM

    Planning a couple of trips down to the valley to watch some hockey and there is a BW right next to the arena, and man that sure would come in handy for a weekend or two stay. The second answer would be to give the other card to my mom so that she can get away for a while!

    By Bev Bennett on November 14, 2011 7:54 AM

    I would like to go to Branson, Missouri with my husband and take another couple with us. I like staying at Best Western hotels. They are very accommodating.

    By Teresa H on November 14, 2011 7:54 AM

    I would use the card for a ladies' getaway. The additional card would allow our whole group of mom's to come, without worrying about finances.

    By Cheryl Turnley on November 14, 2011 7:54 AM

    I would use the card on my next business trip to Ottawa. We stayed at the Best Western Plus Victoria Park Suites this year and it was the nicest hotel I have stayed at in a long time. We didn't want to leave!!!

    I would give the card to my daughter for a wedding present to use on her honeymoon. She is getting married in June and this would be icing on the (wedding) cake.

    By NilKor on November 14, 2011 7:54 AM

    I would use the gift card to visit family in Florida that I haven't seen in over a decade and I would give the other card as a gift to my friend who wants to take his girlfriend on a trip to propose.

    By Valerie on November 14, 2011 7:56 AM

    We moved to Cobourg 7 yrs ago, all our family is in Brantford. So I call the Best Western in Brantford my home away from home. We stay there on average 2 times a month, so the travel card would come in handy.

    By Duane L. Frye on November 14, 2011 7:57 AM

    We would use the gift cards for a little getaway. It would be easy since Best Western has great accomodations anywhere in the U.S.A.
    If we couldn't use them we would give them to one of our 3 adult sons.

    By Plumsden on November 14, 2011 7:57 AM

    Christmas related trips appear to be popular.
    We would probably take a card for a shopping trip, and other would probably go to Mom+Dad as a gift.

    By Deb K. on November 14, 2011 7:57 AM

    I would use the travel card so my husband & son could enjoy and great weekend get away....the 2nd card would go to my sister & brother so they could have a great time away too!.... pools, breakfasts and service is always great at best western!

    By Kim on November 14, 2011 7:58 AM

    With the $250 gift card I would put it towards our hotel stay in 2012 for my husband's 50th birthday. We have not been on a vacation together, just the two of us for more than 20 years. We are hoping to organize a trip to San Diego in March 2012.

    With the other $250 gift card I would like to send my parents away for a couple of nights, perhaps in California or in Oregan, and put this gift card towards their stay. They have helped us out a lot with raising our family and this would be a great way of thanking them!

    By Charles Smith on November 14, 2011 7:58 AM

    Planning a couple of trips to the vallley to watch some hockey and this would sure come in handy for a weekend getaway or two! The answer to the second question would be to give the other card to my mom.

    By Dana Griffiths on November 14, 2011 7:59 AM

    I would use the Best Western travel card to take my mom to Las Vegas.

    If it gave it as a gift, I would give it to mom and dad for them to go on a holiday!

    By Shelley L on November 14, 2011 7:59 AM

    I would use the gift card to visit my daughter who is away at college, spend some quality time with her hanging out at the pool. She could use an escape from the books, too!

    I would send the other gift card to my mom. She really could use a relaxing weekend. Since my dad died suddenly, she hasn't been the same and her getting away would do her a world of good (she's too stubborn to accept money or a gift card from her kids - lol)

    By Moira Riley on November 14, 2011 7:59 AM

    I would use the card to defer some costs with my next trip to San Diego. I would use the card as a Christmas gift.

    By stucker on November 14, 2011 8:03 AM

    Family fun and bonding -- that's what I would use the Best Western travel card for! I would love to take my grandchildren on a trip, and this would allow me that opportunity. Travel time is a wonderful opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime. A Best Western travel card would provide a special bonding time for me to create memories and leave a legacy with my grandchildren!

    By Jody on November 14, 2011 8:03 AM

    I'd LOVE to use it in Kalispel, Montana.
    If it was for a gift, I'd give it to my kids so they could go some place special!

    By Betty on November 14, 2011 8:04 AM

    I would take my husband of 51 years on a trip for our 75th birthdays!


    I would give the other gift to our son and daughter-in-law, their one and only son died last summer!

    By Elsa Jensen on November 14, 2011 8:04 AM

    I would use the travel card for when i drive to alaska to see the whales and I would give other card to my sister that would be coming with me to alaska,that way we can stay longer.

    By DiAnn Kilburg on November 14, 2011 8:04 AM

    If I were to win, I would take a trip to visit all my kids that do not live in my area, this would take me to CT, MN, IL,WI, and CT. I would be able to visit at least a couple of them.


    I would give this gift card to my husband of 44 years as traveling is one of the things he can enjoy at this stage of his life.

    By Elsa Jensen on November 14, 2011 8:08 AM

    I would use the travel card for when i drive to alaska to see the whales and I would give other card to my sister that would be coming with me to alaska,that way we can stay longer

    By Suzi Swanson on November 14, 2011 8:08 AM

    With the first gift card we would take it to Kelowna (our fav place to shop!) and we alway stay at the best western.

    With the gift card it would make a perfect gift for my Mother so she could get away to Calgary to see my sisters.Or she could come with us on our next shopping trip to Kelowna.

    By Gary Jackson on November 14, 2011 8:11 AM

    If I win the travel card I would use it for a getaway with my wife to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. Fort Bragg, CA would be fun!

    As a gift I would give it to my 81 year old friend, Travis, so that he could have chance to get away from the snow for a while :>)

    By Kenneth Klump on November 14, 2011 8:11 AM

    Plan on traveling Route 66 in the summer, would use it then.
    Would give to my son in-law he travels alot

    By Dan Kurtz on November 14, 2011 8:11 AM

    I was in the hospital for 48 hours without insurance and that has take care of our savings. My wife and I's 10 year anniversary is Nov 19 and I can't even buy her a gift. So I would take her to the closest Best Western for belated gift.

    And I would give the other one to my Mom and Dad for hepling us during our time in need.

    By Donna Dimock on November 14, 2011 8:14 AM

    Winning the card would be wonderful for my retired husband and myself on one of our road trips. We love Best Western so it would be HANDY!!

    The second card would be nice as in another year it will be our 50th anniversary and we can go somewhere or possibly even have the married kids join in somewhere.

    By walter patti on November 14, 2011 8:15 AM

    What would I do with a $250 Best Western Gift Card?.... I would give it to one of my grandchildren for a stay at one of their favorite Best Western hotels near their favorite beache in California... and that person is my youngest 28 year old granddaughter who works very hard, and has little time or money to enjoy many of the things she would like to do... and that is what grandpa's are supposed to do with winning something like a $250 Best Western Gift Card! :-)

    By ashley on November 14, 2011 8:15 AM

    I'd use the card to take my hard-working husband on a relaxing weekend to Charleston.

    I'd give the card to my son so he could take his girlfriend somewhere romantic to propose.

    By Steve Rose on November 14, 2011 8:15 AM

    If I won a $250 gift card to BW I would: My wife will soon be having a possibly life changing operation where we may not be able to travel any more so, I would take her on a "no regrets trip" prior to the operation so if it does not go well we would have "no regrets".

    I would give my son and his family the other $250 so they could go on a trip. They donot make a lot of money and have never really had a family vacation, so $250 would be a great start to a family vacation.

    By Allen Walton on November 14, 2011 8:16 AM

    I would give 1 of the $250.00 cards to my wife and daughter so they could go away together for a weekend.

    The other card I would give to the children's telethon.

    By Ani on November 14, 2011 8:16 AM

    We are expecting our first child in late March 2012, so I would use it for a "babymoon" (like a honey moon, but our last chance to be alone before baby) to some obscure place we have always wanted to go, but probably never would otherwise like Niagra Falls, Graceland or New Orleans. The world is our oyster.

    I would give the extra to my parents so they could be with us as baby comes shooting in this world so we could all celebrate together. :)

    By Monica Marshall on November 14, 2011 8:17 AM

    I would you a $250 gift card to go to Minneapolis for a weekend of shopping at IKEA and Mall of America.

    I would like to give a $250 gift card to my son for a future trip to Nova Scotia.

    By Ted Stanulis on November 14, 2011 8:20 AM

    My wife and I will be staying at the Best Western in Hannibal, MO in January. Visiting Sam Clemens' (Mark Twain) home town and down to Clarksville, MO for their annual Eagle Days celebration of our national symbol. The $250 would be used on that trip.

    I would give give a Best Western travel card to my four adult daughters. They all work hard to help support their families. It would be nice for them to have a girls' getaway.

    By A. Dix on November 14, 2011 8:22 AM

    If I won the $250 gift card I would go right to Best Western Revere Inn in Lancaster, Pa. They're the greatest!!! To give a $250 gift card I would give it to my kids for a well deserved time away. Thanks Best Western

    By Christy Slye on November 14, 2011 8:23 AM

    I would use the card to stay at the BW in Ravello, IT. I stayed there years ago and it is a special place with fond memories.
    I would gift the other card to my husband so we could stay twice as long ;)

    By Jan Westercamp on November 14, 2011 8:23 AM

    I would take my daughter who is an Iraqi war veteran going to nursing school and her 3 year old daughter on a much deserved trip. A long weekend away just relaxing and having fun would do alot to recharge her batteries.

    The 2nd one I would give to my cousin who lost her 50 year old husband to cancer two years ago and has been working 2 nursing jobs to try and make ends meet after having to file bankruptcy due to huge medical bills. She would appreciate a break.

    By Marg on November 14, 2011 8:24 AM

    If I got a BW card for $250, I would use it to book a BW hotel at Myrtle Beach, SC over President's Day weekend because my husband will be running the Bi-Lo marathon & we will be visiting my parents who will be driving from Upstate to see us.

    I would give a 2nd card to my daughter & her boyfriend. Since my daughter's in retail she rarely gets off to travel & her boyfriend hasn't been out of MI much. In fact, he's 26 and has never seen the seashore. BW is a great hub since there's so many.

    By Kelly Johnson on November 14, 2011 8:25 AM

    I would use both of the $250 gift cards to bring my Military Nephew & his family, including their newborn baby, to visit the rest of our family. Since they had to move away to a Military base in another state, none of us have seen them. He was deployed for awhile, and recently came back. It would be wonderful for our family to be able to have a family reunion to welcome him home, and to meet the new family member. But, we all live in small homes, and cannot accommodate extra people overnight. These 2 cards would make it possible. The family could all pitch in on travel expenses, if we do not have to pay for their rooms too. Just the thought that we may be able to bring them out for a visit is so exciting, its off the hook.

    By Leona Grosbeck on November 14, 2011 8:27 AM

    I would give the $250 Best Western gift card to my daughter and her family. She has a 2 year old daughter and she works so hard she deserves to get away. Then she would be able to pick a place she would really like to see. Thank You Best Western.

    By Maria Perez-Schaley on November 14, 2011 8:28 AM

    I would use the card to travel to see the Northern Lights. My husband loves it and truly deserves a break. He has been working so hard lately at taking care of our home and his regular job. He has been out in the cold and rain trying to repair our home. I love him and want him to have a chance to relax.

    I would give the other card to my sister in law so that she could travel home to see her children and us!

    By richard westbrook on November 14, 2011 8:28 AM

    christmas vacation to texas.
    give to my son for christmas.

    By Robert West on November 14, 2011 8:29 AM

    Same answer to both questions! I would give either or both to one of our military members recently returned from Afghanistan.

    By P. Antonsen on November 14, 2011 8:30 AM

    I'd give it to our daughter for a holiday

    By Russ & Wendy Wilson on November 14, 2011 8:30 AM

    My brother and his wife are visiting the USA next February and we will join them from Canada. We would all use the gift card for a stay at the Best Western., Old Town SanDiego. Its a great hotel in a great part of California to visit.

    By Leona Grosbeck on November 14, 2011 8:31 AM

    I would take my husband away with the $250 travel card. We never get a chance to get away alone. We spend so much time helping our children and grandchildren. It would be awesome for us.

    By Robert West on November 14, 2011 8:32 AM

    Same answer to both questions. I would give either or both to one of our soldiers recently returned from Afghanistan.

    By James Cranfield on November 14, 2011 8:33 AM

    l'd use mind to my wife on a nice vacation.we work all year so she needs a break. Same l'd give the other one to my mom. Her house caught on fire and has been 8 months getting back in her house. So she really deserves a break.

    By Kathe Atkinson on November 14, 2011 8:34 AM

    I could easily use a BW gift card as I am planning a couple of nights away in Seattle for some HUGE Black Friday shopping with my teenagers and night or two in a nice hotel is always a nice treat.

    By P. Antonsen on November 14, 2011 8:34 AM

    I'd give it to our daughter for a holiday

    By Russ Wilson on November 14, 2011 8:34 AM

    I would use the gift card to take my brother and his wife to stay at the Best Western, Old Town, San Diego. They are from England and we are from canada. It is their firstvisit to the USA.

    By Sheryl Orloff on November 14, 2011 8:35 AM

    Being a Senior Citizen my husband and I take our granddaughter all over the us for BMX racing and it would help us to pay for hotel rooms. It is quite expensive and every penny helps

    By Georges Martineau on November 14, 2011 8:36 AM

    i would use the cards for my future trip to orlando in 2012
    and the other card to my son so we could go together
    whit my wife and dauther in law and the grand-son

    By GEO on November 14, 2011 8:38 AM

    IF I WON THE $250.00 BEST WESTERN GIFT CARD, I WOULD SPEND IT ON A TRIP TO ALASKA WHICH HAS BEEN PLANNED FOR ALMOST A YEAR NOW. HAVING HAD A STROKE PUT MY ALASKA TRIP PLANS AND MY LIFE ON HOLD. THE GIFT CARD WOULD HELP GET ME BACK ON THE TRAVEL TRACK AGAIN. I LOVE TO TRAVEL AND NOW HAVE THE TIME TO DO IT. I WOULD GIVE MY BEST FRIEND AND CARE-GIVER THE OTHER $250.00 BEST WESTERN GIFT CARD TO BE ABLE TO JOIN ME ON THE ALASKAN ADVENTURE. WE HAVE TRAVEL EVERYWHERE TOGETHER ACROSS THE U.S.A. AND ALWAY STAY WITH BEST WESTERN. THEY TAKE GREAT CARE OF HANDICAP GUESTS, ALWAYS BEYOND EXPECTATIONS.

    By Ryan Anderson on November 14, 2011 8:42 AM

    My wife is a teacher and I am a summer camp director. Each year we get a small vacation between camp ending and school starting. This year we hope to head to either the Pacific North West or the South West. The $250 Best Western card would be a wonderful help for either trip and maybe help us stay in each place just a little bit longer.

    My best friend became a stay at home dad when he had his beautiful little girl. She just turned 4 and their family would love a vacation. The $250 from Best Western would help make that possible.

    By Cynthia on November 14, 2011 8:42 AM

    I would plan a trip to Best Western River North in Chicago and give the second card to my only brother who lives in Ontario so he and his wife could meet us there. It has been ages since we've seen each other.

    By Patricia Wholley on November 14, 2011 8:45 AM

    My girlfriends and I take an annual Christmas "shopping" trip to NYC and always stay at our favorite Best Western. So the $250 gift card would come in handy so I'd have extra cash for Holiday Cheer! The second cardI would gift to my sisters so they could also plan a getaway to NYC (I bet they'd take me along )

    By Robert B. on November 14, 2011 8:45 AM

    We are planning a driving trip across the country and as we always stay in Best Western's when possible (have stayed in many in Europe as well) this gift card would be a great help.
    Would give the 2nd one as a gift to my son and family who love to travel but since the arrival of twin boys have not been able to afford to do so.

    By leo tujak on November 14, 2011 8:47 AM

    I would use the card to visit my daughter & grandson. They live quite a ways away, and we don't get to see them often enough. It would be a great chance to visit them.

    Would give a card to my wife so she could do the same thing.

    By jhbiz on November 14, 2011 8:48 AM

    I would use the $250 BW card to help pay for a stay in Bandon, OR so my husband could play Bandon Dunes Golf Course - just voted America's Top - and a firm favorite of his before it really became famous.

    I would send a BW card to my dearest friend in the UK so she could come and take a trip with us.

    By Jack Mathews on November 14, 2011 8:49 AM

    I would use the gift card to stay on the way to visit our son.

    I would give the second to my son to do the return visit.

    By Gail on November 14, 2011 8:51 AM

    Ah, to 'do' San Francisco, or Paris at Christmas...or New York.
    We'd love to see the fall colours in Vermont...
    or somewhere close to home that we wouldn't normally do...for a mini rejuvenating break....like Vancouver, or Whistler.
    ah decisions...

    and my sister would love a break...what a gift.

    What a wonderful gift for my husband...

    By Cheryl Mielnichuk on November 14, 2011 8:52 AM

    We would use the gift card for a reunion with my husband"s cousins etc. in Michigan
    this coming summer
    The other gift card I would give to Gordon, my brother so that he could go to Toronto & Niagara Falls & see the sites & save on some accomodations

    By Doug W on November 14, 2011 8:52 AM

    If i won the Travel vochures , i would use them when i travel to Minot / Bismark ND this coming December or April 2012 when i go there shopping and to watch Fastball . I would give the other one to my Daughter and her family so they could have a get away somewhere too .

    By Robert brisebois on November 14, 2011 8:53 AM

    We plan on travelling across the country and as we always stay in Best Westerns whenever possible (have stayed in many wonderful ones in Europe as well) This gift card would be a real gift.
    Would give the 2nd card to my son and family as they love to travel but since the arrival of twin boys have been unable to aford to do so.

    By Gail on November 14, 2011 8:55 AM

    Christmas in New York, Paris, Montreal, San Francisco, Vancouver, Whistler....decisions, decisions....
    What a wonderful gift for my wonderful husband.

    By rik damin on November 14, 2011 8:58 AM

    1. Would use the gift card for our upcoming trip to the IceFields parkway in Alberta, CA in 2012.

    2. Would give a gift card to my kids to use for their summer vacation in 2012

    By Gene Samson on November 14, 2011 8:59 AM

    My wife and I would use the first card and I would give the secound to our best friends, so that we all could go to Cleveland and visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    By Michelle on November 14, 2011 9:01 AM

    We would use this card to go to Seattle for New Years Eve so that our boys and our neice(who has never gone far from whitehorse) could see the Space Needle and bring in the New Year! The second card I would give to my friend and her family so there girls could join in on the festivities not too much happens for children in Kelowna for New years so I think this would be a special gift enjoyed by all

    By Luis Alfaro on November 14, 2011 9:02 AM

    I would use it as mental health relief and travel up the coast of California, as my neighbors continue their very loud house reconstruction during the holidays.

    I would give it to one of my international students at the University of Southern California, who often can't afford to go home during the holidays and end up in the dorm. This would be a great alternative!

    By Rosa Bennett on November 14, 2011 9:02 AM

    When I travel for my job I always stay at the Best Western. The people there are very helpful, courteous, and friendly. Although I would love to take a vacation with my husband, I'd surely share a vacation with our youngest daughter. Presently she is attending law school and struggling with three young children. I know she is weary but not a quitter.

    Two $250.00 gift cards would be a blessing

    By Chris Hutchison on November 14, 2011 9:02 AM

    I would go to visit my Mom & Dad over Christmas Holidays...they live so far away and I miss them....the gift card would be for both myself and for them...as we would get to see each other...thank you

    By Eric T. on November 14, 2011 9:03 AM

    We'd use the first card to stay overnight before a cruise.
    We'd give the other card to my brother to use while he's in the states.

    By Anthony on November 14, 2011 9:03 AM

    After working all our lives, my wife finally retired and we'd look forward to traveling back East, visiting the few family still living and trying out the Best Western Premium Hotels to see how they differ from the few Best Western Plus Hotels we've stayed at. I'd give the card to my wife because she really needs to learn to relax now.

    By shelley on November 14, 2011 9:05 AM

    Would use the cards for a family trip. We always stay at the Best Western for our annual beach outings. We pretend it's "our beach house". The card would allow us to invite family to join us!

    By Courtney on November 14, 2011 9:06 AM

    I'd use the first gift card to stay at the Best Western Las Brisas in Palm Springs in Feb 2012, and ride the Tour of Palm Springs, a charity bike ride for numerous kids' organizations in the Coachella Valley.

    I'd use the second gift card to invite our good friends along to enjoy the ride with us. We both have young kids, and the pool area and breakfast room at the BW Las Brisas are great for families.

    By Shannon on November 14, 2011 9:06 AM

    I would take my son on a "trip through history - Boston, Philidelphia, Jamestown" for spring break. I would give a second card to my sister so she could afford to take her three girls on a vacation away from home.

    By StuartsLittle1 on November 14, 2011 9:06 AM

    What I would do with a $250 Best Western gift card is gift it to my daughter and "who would I give it to", obviously the same answer, my daughter... because for the first time, she and my son-in-law have saved up enough money to take my 4 year-old granddaughter (their only child) to Disneyland for Christmas. What I would do for that little family whom always works hard - not just to make ends meet, but for everyone they know. My daughter, her husband and her daughter are deserving and THAT is what I would do with the $250 Best Western gift car and exactly who I'd give it to!

    By alan on November 14, 2011 9:08 AM

    Would use the cards to surprise my family!

    By vincent p. montoro on November 14, 2011 9:09 AM


    I would use one to visit N. Dakota the only state that I have not been to. The other would go to a marine vietnam Vet from our Assoc. who would need financial help to go to our reunion in 2012.

    By Jim Thompson on November 14, 2011 9:10 AM

    We would use the Best Western reward to celebrate our 48th anniversary with family...a grand celebration. God has blessed us with many grandchildren and it would be great to all be together at the same time.

    By Kim Black on November 14, 2011 9:10 AM

    I would use one certificate to take my family, my two kids are 12 and 9 up to banff for a couple of nights stay. The other g.c. would be used by the kids' grandparents so that we could all enjoy a family getaway. they are on a fixed income and my father-in-law is terminally ill, so we can make some great memories.

    By John Montague on November 14, 2011 9:11 AM

    I am planning to visit Chicago after Christmas and the prize will help me to stay at one of the several Best Westerns that are located in neat areas. I have stayed at them before and habe been pleased they are clean, comfortable and friendly accommodations.

    By Brenda Morrow on November 14, 2011 9:12 AM

    I would return to the Santa Barbara Best Western where I stayed a few years ago. It was a lovely hotel.

    I would give the other gift card, to my best friend, who is currently unemployed. I think she would like a little getaway and pampering at one of the great hotels in the chain.

    By John Montague on November 14, 2011 9:13 AM

    I would use the card to stay at a Best Western in Chicago. I have found the to be well located, clean, comfortable and friendly

    By LRae on November 14, 2011 9:13 AM

    I would use it to see my kids in Seattle - one works and one goes to school. I would give the second to my folks so they could visit my mom's cousin in Oregon.

    By amanda medford on November 14, 2011 9:14 AM

    I would use it to take my honey on a weekend away. His life is completely stressfull right now fighting for custody of his children he could use the break.

    I would give them away to my mom and dad to allow them to go away. My dad has just recovered from a near fatal car crash ad i think they could use the get away

    By Doreen K. Wiszowaty on November 14, 2011 9:14 AM

    I will give the $250 to my youngest daughter who works full time and goes to school at night. She can't afford a vacation and she works so hard she deserves to enjoy herself.

    By Teresa J on November 14, 2011 9:14 AM

    My husband and I live in Chicago and love going to Wisconsin in the summer with our grown kids. We would love to treat our kids to a Wisconsin 3 day weekend with us in Lake Geneva or Kenosha, Wisconsin. Both have awesome Best Western Hotels and the areas are "family friendly". With the current economy, our daughter-in-law and son and step grandson, don't get many opportunities to go away for a little R&R. It would be such a pleasure to be able to treat them! Just the joy of being together and enjoying the sites and each other would be fantastic!

    By cheryl ethrington on November 14, 2011 9:14 AM

    I would visit my kids/grand kids in Seattle. I miss them so much.

    The second card I would send to my mother, so she could visit them too. We could share a room, and stay twice as long.

    By Beth Frappier on November 14, 2011 9:18 AM

    Every Summer I travel the US 127 garage Sale. I would definately use the gift card to stay along the way.

    I would share the second one with my Sister. She is my traveling companion on this trip and we look forward to it each year because we have so much fun. This card would allow us to even buy more!!

    By Connie on November 14, 2011 9:18 AM

    I'd take my kids to visit their Grandparents! The second card I would give to Pointman Ministries, to help a Veteran and/or Veteran's family in need.

    By gary tuttle on November 14, 2011 9:20 AM

    Spend a few days in San Francisco in May. Run Bay to Breakers Race. {36th anniversary of my victory}

    By LINDA J KRUM on November 14, 2011 9:20 AM

    We just enjoyed staying at 4 different Best Western Hotels visiting several Canyon Parks with great satisfaction. Reservations were always correct, rooms, beds, very comfortable, breakfasts delicious, all were a great value for the price, locations were excellent and Best Western's website is very easy to navigate and book rooms. I would give extra bonus to Mom for her 90th birthday travels.

    By Letha Scheese on November 14, 2011 9:20 AM

    I would use it on my trip to North Dakota to visit my sister friend and give the other to my son to use to visit my daughter and me.

    By richard wallace on November 14, 2011 9:22 AM

    Since it's thanksgiving I would get a room for this homeless guy in town who could use a hot bath and a washup. Maybe he would be able to bulk up on the free breakfast. I would also throw in a pair of shoes as his are held together with duck tape. Sharing never hurts. Go out and try it.

    By Kathy Mc on November 14, 2011 9:23 AM

    Oh, my husband and I could celebrate our birthdays and anniversary by taking a trip to NYC (always been on our bucket list). Would give the other one to my sister so she could take a driving trip to visit us from MN to WA and stay at BW along the way.

    I would use the Best Western Gift Card when we travel to Florida. We try to find a Best Western every time we travel.

    I would give the other Best Western Gift Card to my daughters for a Chicago shopping trip and a well deserved night away!

    By Donna M on November 14, 2011 9:24 AM

    My husband and myself have cared for my 94 year old mother for the last nine years on our own. My sister has volunteered to take mom for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. (The first time they will be together in 10 years.) We'd use the card for a get away for my husband and myself.

    By Tom Love on November 14, 2011 9:25 AM

    I'd use it in Morro Bay Ca. My favorite place in the Fall. No crowds.

    I'd give the other to my in laws who have helped us many times over the years

    By Sharon Goldin on November 14, 2011 9:26 AM

    I would use the card on my travels with my 3 boys from Virginia to Florida to see my mom. Because all 3 of my boys have chronic medical issues (2 are tube fed) and take a lot of medications it is too difficult to fly with all the medical supplies and pumps, etc. We have stayed many times in Best Westerns when we make this trip as the rooms are good size and I can always get a refrigerator for medications at no cost.

    I would give the card to my mother as she is always coming up to assist me when one of the boys are in the hospital or has surgery. It would help her defray some of the costs of her wonderful assistance to me.

    Thanks

    I would use a $250.00 gift card to take my husband to the beach. The BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort Monterey is a perfect getaway to the beach and to spend time with him. Not taking care of anybody else or any other problems, just enjoying ourselves reconnecting. It is not too far from home that you feel you need a vacation to recoup from your vacation. My husband was born near the beach and the saying goes you can take the boy from the beach, but you can't take the beach out of the boy. He has been looking for a hotel where you can just walk out onto the beach. My 2nd choice would be the Best Westerns in Pismo Beach on the cliffs. Having our own little beach and the privacy was amazing. Just would like to do it without kids.To not think about medical issues, kids, school. just get away.

    I would give the other $250.00 gift card to my in-laws for all the things they do for the family and always doing things for others and not for themselves. They deserve a little rest and relaxation. they always put others first. Even through medical issues such as Wagener's disease they always are thinking of other family members. They have been giving for close to 50 years, I would like to give them something back.

    By Karla on November 14, 2011 9:28 AM

    If I won I could visit my son in Southern California for Christmas.

    And I would give the other card to my husband and son in law so they could travel to see his grandson play baseball in New York next spring.

    By ruth vomund on November 14, 2011 9:28 AM

    Take a few days off in San Diego, stay at Bayside Best Western. Visit my neice and her Marine husband.

    By John Montague on November 14, 2011 9:32 AM

    I love the Best Westerns in Chicago because they are well located and are clean. comfortable and friendly establishments.

    By Alan Penty on November 14, 2011 9:32 AM

    If I won the Best Western gift cards, I would use one to go skiing, my favourite winter pastime. We struggle each year to find the funds for a reasonably priced ski trip. I would give the other card to my daughter who has just started college and can't afford to travel right now. Perhaps she could treat a friend and have a mini vacation at reading break.

    By christie on November 14, 2011 9:34 AM

    I'd stay someplace that i haven't stsyed before :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) And I'd give the sed on to my bestie because she never has time for herself she is always helping others.

    By Pam d on November 14, 2011 9:35 AM

    By Brenda R on November 14, 2011 9:40 AM

    I would use the travel card to help pay expenses for the once in a lifetime trip to Alaska that my sister, a friend and me have been wanting to take.

    The gift card would go to my sister who could use it to visit her grandchildren who she is unable to see as often as she would like.

    By susan schwartig on November 14, 2011 9:42 AM

    I would use the first card to visit a place in the US I have not been.
    The second card would go to my nephew & his wife. They've never been on a vacation without their family since they have been married. They are always busy taking care of everyone else.

    By Janis Cossey on November 14, 2011 9:44 AM

    I would use the card to stay at the Best Western Plus in New Orleans on February 10, 2012, which will be our 45th wedding anniversary. We spend our honeymoon in New Orleans 45 years ago and would love to go back and rekindle old memories.

    By Elizabeth on November 14, 2011 9:45 AM

    By Ruth on November 14, 2011 9:55 AM

    I would give the other card to my daughter, so she can stay in a Best Western instead of a "not so good" hotel...

    By Lori M on November 14, 2011 9:56 AM

    I could use the card to stay at Best Western hotels to travel to North Dakota which would allow me to have visited the last of the lower 48 U.S. states. Then I would just have Alaska and Hawaii on my bucket list to have visited all 50 states.

    I would give the second card to my son and his wife because they can't afford to get away and have a special weekend together.

    Thanks so much for this opportunity.

    By Keith Huntley on November 14, 2011 10:08 AM

    We are Canadian Snowbirds and we travel back and forth from Winnippeg, MB to Apache Junction, AZ every fall and spring so we would use the $250. for motel accomodations on the way back home. This year we stayed in two excellent Best Westerns one in Council Bluffs, IA and the other one in Weatherford, OK on the way down to Arizona. We always have very good service at Best Westerns.

    We would give the $250. gift certificate to our children so they could come and visit us in Arizona.

    By Craig Vrana on November 14, 2011 10:08 AM

    I would use the first gift card to get my family together.
    The second card would be donated to one of our service personnel returning from overseas to get his or her family together.

    By Crystal Morgan on November 14, 2011 10:10 AM

    I would use the gift cards to take my family on an 2 day vacation. The kids are always asking when we can go to a hotel with a pool and waterslide. I would love to be able to tell them the exciting news. Or take my husband away and rekindle the love :)
    I would give the second card to my mother and father in law as they take care of the kids so much and it really gives us that extra break that we need as parents, so it would be nice to be able to give them a break after all they do for us

    By Lori Spence on November 14, 2011 10:11 AM

    We do a lot of travelling with the kids to ski competitions and swim meets, so I would use the gift cards for their travelling. We could then travel as a family!

    By Mitchell A. Raab on November 14, 2011 10:11 AM

    I would use one card for travel for my wife & I. The other card I would give to my Brother

    By Sharron on November 14, 2011 10:13 AM

    Our son had his first child born last May in Wisconsin. We saw the baby once when we visited this summer but his wife chose to leave him while he was on a business trip. He came home to their home cleaned out except for his few personal things. We live in Florida. We would use our gift card for a trip back to Wisconsin when he gets joint custody so we can see our grandson again.

    We would give him the other card so that he could come to Florida during his custody time and we could see our grandson again.

    1. If I won a $250 travel card I'd book two rooms at my local BW and invite my Aunt & Uncle - both in their 80's - to come visit and stay at my home. My wife and I would then go stay at the BW.

    2. I'd give the other $250 card to my cousin so he and his wife/kids come come visit as well and stay with us in the BW.

    Finally, a mini family reunion - all thanks to Best Western!

    By Betty Anderson-Perri on November 14, 2011 10:22 AM

    I would use a best wester gift card to take my wife on a nice baby moon vacation. We are having our first baby and I would like to take my wife on one last vacation before the baby comes. And if we make it a small trip we could save the rest to go on a small get away later with the baby.

    By Betty Anderson-Perri on November 14, 2011 10:28 AM

    I would use the card to take my daughters on a new adventure,somewhere we have never been. I love family time and making memories and all we have is today. I would give the other card to my sister ,who recently survived breast cancer. She has not done much traveling and I would love for her and all our family to see more of the world, another new adventure. Thanks Betty

    By Christopher Tan on November 14, 2011 10:31 AM

    I would use the gift card for me , my 2-year-old daughter and my wife who has long been seperated from me to anywhere in the world. Our relationship has becoming worsen for the pass 2 years after the baby born and I m pretty confidence that BW can bring us back sweet memories we had on our last stay with BW.

    Not forgetting my nanny, Mrs Alice who always support me in whatever occations I encountered while I work and babysit my daughter at the same time. YOU deserve the second gift card, trully presented to you from my heart !

    By D Stearns on November 14, 2011 10:34 AM

    I would use my card to stay in Los Angeles for the Dodgers opening series in April. Love the Dragon Gate Best Westen in China Town.
    I would give the other card to " Shelter From the Storm" an organization that helps battered women and children in the Palm Springs area.

    By Donald Pearse on November 14, 2011 10:37 AM

    I am 76 years old and I would travel to Momument Valley and other points of interest in the beautiful West that I have always wanted to see.

    I would give the other card to some deserving person who has a travel wish of some sort.

    I would use my card for a trip up the Pacific Coast Highway in California. Done that once and would love to do it again.

    I would give the card to my Brother and his family. They never did get to go anywhere for a honeymoon so this would give them the chance to get away for a few days

    By Sandy K on November 14, 2011 10:46 AM

    I would use the gift cards so all three of my children and their families could have a family get together now that everyone has moved to different area's of the US.

    Plus our son and his wife are having a new daughter around Christmas and can't travel and his sister , brother in law , and little cousin can't make the trip to see the new baby.

    So this would be a gift for our children.

    By Gary on November 14, 2011 10:47 AM

    I would take my family on a driving holiday down the Washington and Oregon coast. These States have an amazing coat line and it would be wonderful to share it with them. We would then head back in land through Kalamth Falls and see Crater Lake followed by Mt. St. Helen's as we make our way home to BC.

    I would give the gift card to a friend of the family who is going through some challenging times lately. This gift card would give here an opportunity to get a way for a few days and re charge her sole.

    By RITA ABELARDO on November 14, 2011 10:48 AM

    I AM GOING TO DUBAI & HAD RESERVED A TRIPLE ROOM FOR JANUARY 2012.
    HOPEFULLY BY WINNING THESE $250 GIFT CARD WILL ENABLE ME TO PAY FOR MY 4 NIGHTS STAY.

    By Korrie Belanger on November 14, 2011 10:48 AM

    I would go wherever the road took me. The day those travel cards arrive in the mail I would pack my bags and head out. I'd go as far as I could drive and stop at a best Western each night. Maybe even make it across Canada.

    If I had the opportunity to give the card to anyone? I would give it to my parents and tell them to live a little, pretend their 20 again and hit the road!

    By native_star on November 14, 2011 10:48 AM

    Traveling is not something we are able to often. Due to the increasing fuel price and the downfall in the economy money increasingly becomes hard to come by.
    I would use the first card to take my children to visit great grandma for her 85 birthday. We have been un-able to visit since her 80 birthday and this would be a blessing to me and my children be able to see her again.
    I would give the other card to my ex-husband so that he may visit his mother who has been in bad health for sometime now. This would be a blessing and gift for him, his mother as well as the children who have not seen her for more than 4 years now.

    By Martha Bendel on November 14, 2011 10:49 AM

    I am planning a trip back East to visit family and friends and also visit the graves of my Mom, Dad, Sister & Brother-In-Law. I've not been back East since 2003.

    If it was a gift, I would give it to my niece in CA, and she and her husband could use it for a mini-anniversary vacation.

    By Asher Cohen on November 14, 2011 10:49 AM

    Since my job makes me travel around the world, I guess you can say that I have seen it all but to actually take a vacation in a hotel is quite different. I would travel with my wife and kids most likely to a ski area in the Northern regions of Quebec -
    I would gladly give the gift cards to my family so we may all enjoy the holidays together.

    By Rebekah Harris on November 14, 2011 10:52 AM

    I would use the first gift card toward the trip that my husband, my brother, and I have planned to Disneyland in May. I would probably give the second gift card to my parents, because they often travel with us.

    By Gracie Gonzalez on November 14, 2011 10:53 AM

    I will use the travel card to get a room for my Honeymoon night.
    And if I will give it to someone it will to my husband so he can take me to a getaway.:)

    By Naomi on November 14, 2011 11:02 AM

    I would use the giftcards to surprise my husband with a wintery vacation to celebrate our anniversary.

    By Linda Enos on November 14, 2011 11:07 AM

    There are so many travel 0pportunities to consider, and I would consider them all, but I think I would give both to a close friend of mine who really needs a good pick me up, she is feeling very very down. With both cards she could splurge a couple of nights in a nice place or maybe almost a week somewhere else. She needs to get her life back in order and I think a vacation is just the prescription she would need to help break the cycle that she is currently in.

    By Doris Powell on November 14, 2011 11:13 AM

    I would use the $250 travel card for a trip we are planning to take to San Diego over the Christmas holidays.

    I would give the $250 travel card to my daughter who is recaovering from a broken back and is much in need of a "get away."

    By Leeschwa on November 14, 2011 11:14 AM

    I would use it to stay at a BW somewhere I had not been before- like Albuquerque, where we would like to go in December. I would give it to myself because it's been soooooo long since I've had a vacation, and I know I'd appreciate it!

    By D. Timbrell on November 14, 2011 11:29 AM

    I would use the travel card to take my husband away for his birthday on Christmas day so I could treat him for a change, then the other one I would give to Mike for his travel in April and stay in the best Best Westerns along the way. It would be so great not to worry about the cost and only pay for the gas on the trip. Thank you : )

    By dani simmers on November 14, 2011 11:29 AM

    I would use both gift cards to treat our large family to a stay in Washington DC. We have been wanting our children and grandchildren to experience our nation's capital for some time, now. Best Western is our first choice for comfortable and affordable lodging, so I know that we would have a great stay.

    By Carmine on November 14, 2011 11:32 AM

    I would use my $250 travel card foor a valentine getaway with my wife.

    Give the $250 travel card to my daughter and son in law who work too much and need a weekend somewhere.

    A gift card would make it nice to take a trip souoth this winter. I would give a card to a cousin to do the same. Cold in Spokane and warm in
    Arizona. Nice Best Western in Mesa.

    By Kim Gray on November 14, 2011 11:34 AM

    I just suggested to my Mom that we (Mom, sis and I) are due for a girls weekend away. My Mom asked where we'd go and what we'd do. "Anything you want," was my answer.

    My Mom was diagnosed with Parkinsons fairly early and it is important to my sister and I to be able to spend our time together as a family. We love getting together and enjoy the laughter & company of each other, and exploring new places.

    Road trip here we come! The Best Western gift cards would sure be welcome and appreciated by all of us. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I plan a trip to Atlantic city next summer

    By Helene G on November 14, 2011 11:39 AM

    I would not hesitate to book a trip to CA immediately and take my elderly mother with me. We have very close relatives who would love to see my mothe since its been quite a number of years since we have seen them.

    The $250 travel card I would give to my niece who is recobering from Cancer. She deserves a vacation and the rest because she has been the carewgiver for my elderly mother.

    By Laszlo Urban on November 14, 2011 11:43 AM

    Dreaming. I would visit a quiet small city or willage to have a couple days in peace with my loving wife. Hm, or how about Paris? Would be great.

    I would give the $250 travel card to my mother who loves travelling and seeing beautiful sights all around the country. She deserves it. She has worked a lot in her active life. Thank you.

    By Marie Barnes on November 14, 2011 11:47 AM

    My husband and I would drive out from Niagara Falls Canada to go see his brother in Tucson Arizona who is recuperating from cancer. I know he would love to see his brother again.

    I would give the travel gift card to my hard working daughter who is raising five children for her and her husband to have a nice weekend getaway.

    By Kathy V on November 14, 2011 11:48 AM

    The first card would be there for our holiday. When it is over and we say, "Can't we stay just one more night?" we can.
    The second card would go to some hard working family members who can never get away. It gives them an incentive to take some well deserved time off.

    By Mary R on November 14, 2011 11:57 AM

    I would go to Disney World with my nieces and nephews. With the state implenting furlough days, money is very tight.

    I would give the card to my Sister, who's husband is in the military about to be deployed to Kuwait, for some much needed R& R for the two of them.

    By Sandy W. on November 14, 2011 11:59 AM

    If I won a $250 Best Western travel card I would use it with my husband to celebrate our upcoming 1st wedding anniversary! Where would we go? Not sure, but with Best Western we would certainly find somewhere exciting to travel to.

    If I won a $250 Best Western travel card I would give it to my step-son's family so that they could enjoy a weekend away. Maybe they'll use it to come and visit us!

    By Emily on November 14, 2011 12:00 PM

    I would use the gift-cards to see my family for the holidays; The gift of a gift-card I would give to a dear friend who hasn't had a break with her children in over two years. it would allow them to take a much needed vacation!

    By Mary R on November 14, 2011 12:00 PM

    By Beth on November 14, 2011 12:06 PM

    i would use the Best Western Gift Card to go to Jackson Hole, Wyomiing for Christmas! We wanted to do something special for Chirstmas this year, and that would definitely make it special!

    The second card I would give to my daughter and her husband. They have 6 kids, so money is tight. That would allow them to get away and make a special trip!

    By Peter M. on November 14, 2011 12:09 PM

    I would combine the card along with my points to help cover the cost for a much needed surgery I need in New York.

    The second card will go to my companion who will accompany me there.

    By Heather Heilman on November 14, 2011 12:11 PM

    I would use the card for a get away during Christmas break. I am finishing up my student teaching and my daughter has been hard at work practicing for The Nutcracker so we will need a break.

    I would give the other card to my mom. She has always done so much for me and my daughter. It is the least I could do for her.

    By Reena Williams on November 14, 2011 12:13 PM

    The first card would be for a generous, hardworking someone to relax, and have fun. The second card I will donate to a local charity where it would be actioned off to increase the gift even more.

    By MARGIE PRICHARD on November 14, 2011 12:21 PM

    I would visit my granddaughter more.

    The second card I would donated to charity as we live in Alaska an in the winter there are homeless without warm places to be.

    By SH on November 14, 2011 12:22 PM

    I would use the card to take my son to a college visit. We would probablly wind up in MN or KS, where some colleges have shown some interest in him.

    By Lorali on November 14, 2011 12:24 PM

    I would use the best western card to go visit my son in Arizona~ He finally found a teaching job but had to leave wisconsin to find a good one & I miss him terribly!!
    I would give the other card to my best friend who has children all over the USA to visit...one in Washington DC in the Navy,one in Florida & one in the state of Washington.

    By Lois Smith on November 14, 2011 12:24 PM

    I would give both of them to my sister and her husband so they could take their 3 grandkids on a road trip from southern Indiana to Georgia and points south. They have had a hard year and this could be a part of their healing process.

    By Chris on November 14, 2011 12:25 PM

    Venice after Christmas. The kids would like to come along with the second card.

    By Faye Eaton on November 14, 2011 12:28 PM

    Planning on an Anniversary Cruise in February, from SC to Fl. Always stay at Best Western in Cocoa Beach, Fl, would definitely use it for that.

    Hawaii!

    The second card would go to my girlfriend so we could enjoy Hawaii even more!

    By William A. Jaques Jr. on November 14, 2011 12:34 PM

    I would find a place that the 4 of us have not visited yet and book us a room there for a couple of nights. There are still lots of place here in California we haven't been to and this would be a great opportunity for that.

    The second card would be given to my wife's Aunt Donna. She is always willing to help us out and never will accept money or anything for assisting us when we need her. This would be a great way of "paying" her back for all she does for us!

    By penny on November 14, 2011 12:35 PM

    I would use the gift cards on a fun weekend trip with my husband and granddaughter to Ruidoso Pine Springs Best Western. We stayed there last summer and loved it!

    I would love to have the gift cards to give to family members who can not afford to stay in the Best Western / Henrietta this New Year's Eve for my daughter's wedding!

    By Loretta C. on November 14, 2011 12:51 PM

    I love to take little trips with some of my girlfriends. Having a girls weekend is something we all need at times. And we always have a blast. I love going to the mountains, where it is always so pretty and quiet. I love going to Culpeper, VA and have stayed there a few times. Always wonderful service and room.

    I would give the other gift card to my best friend who also likes to just get away at times. She could use it to visit her daughter away at college in NC, who she misses very much.

    By Marianne on November 14, 2011 12:52 PM

    I'm going to visit my 97 year old Aunt in NJ. I would use the gift card to pay for my stay, while visiting her.

    I would give the second card to my son and his family in CT. This way they could join us on the visit. It has been quite a while since they have seen Aunt Grace. It would make her very happy to see them for the holidays.

    By bet on November 14, 2011 12:54 PM

    By Frederick Young on November 14, 2011 1:02 PM

    And I'd give one to my dad so he could visit me in the summer.

    By Patricia Lodato on November 14, 2011 1:05 PM

    I'd use the gift card to stay at Best Western on our trip down to Florida this winter. I loved our stay at a Best Western during our trip home last spring! I'd give the other gift card to my 80+ year old Mom so she'd have a wonderful place to stay when she travels.

    By Beverly on November 14, 2011 1:06 PM

    If chosen, I would spend my $250 Best Western gift card during my husband's family reunion in the South. We live in the Pacific Northwest and it would be so great to visit and see his family.

    The second BW gift card I'd like my brother to win it. He, like most of the people in this county, is having a really hard time. I miss his smile. This would give him an opportunity to travel and visit places he's only dreamed about.

    By ceej on November 14, 2011 1:07 PM

    I'd use mine to go back to Australia and give the gift card to a friend to go with me!

    By Jacques Henri on November 14, 2011 1:12 PM

    Believe me, it wouldn't take long to book an hotel room for the Holidays where I'd love to spend a couple of days.

    And I would spend these couple of days with my wife of 48 years. We deserve the best.

    By Tim on November 14, 2011 1:13 PM

    My wife's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks and I would take her away for a weekend.

    By Heather Campbell-Black on November 14, 2011 1:19 PM

    If I won a $250 Best Western travel card-I would take my husband and myself-as a birthday gift to me-on a trip to Victoria BC and visit lots of bookstores

    By Karen Furu on November 14, 2011 1:21 PM

    If I would win the two $250 Best Western Travel cards I would use the one to travel to Massachusetts to see our son, his wife and 7 month old granddaughter. They moved there in August and we would love to see them again.

    I would give the other card to our daughter and her family so they could have a special weekend trip somewhere with their four children.

    By Kim on November 14, 2011 1:23 PM

    I would use a $250 gift card for our stay in Chicago for the Blues Festival. We have been going for 3 years now and always have stayed at Best Western.

    The other card I would give to my son and future daughter-in-law for a nice stay after their wedding in January. They are not planning on a honeymoon at this time so the gift card would be very useful for them to get away.

    By jaimee wood on November 14, 2011 1:27 PM

    I'd use the card to visit my parents on the Coast.

    I'd give the card to my sister so she could take a roadtrip to visit our parents too.

    By Marion Smith on November 14, 2011 1:29 PM

    The first 250 BW Travel card I would keep for my husband and I so we get getaway for a wkend in the states checking out all the casino's, and the second I would give to my daughter so her and I could go to the states and spend some alone time and do some great shopping.

    By Mary Martinez on November 14, 2011 1:29 PM

    If I won a $250.00 Best Western travel card, I would give it to my daughter who is coming home for Christmas. She works with kids at a school and drives a school bus. She is always doing things for other. So I would like her to have the gift card.

    By Ralph W. Nevels on November 14, 2011 1:30 PM

    I would use the $250 to stay in a great Best Western Hotel while attending
    the SEC Tourneyment in New Orleans next March.

    I would give a card to my daughter who is an elementary school teacher and
    a single Mother of two great boys

    By Javeair Ester on November 14, 2011 1:31 PM

    If I won i would use the card to go away on a romantic getaway for me and my fiance for a weekend. I would use the other one as a gift to my parents because they travel so much and it would really come in handy!

    By Stacy Lewis on November 14, 2011 1:46 PM

    I have a rare form of cancer, and the closest specialist is three hours from our home. We make the drive down every week for my appointments and treatments, and on the treatments when I'm not admitted to the hospital, we stay at the Best Western. We love how they remember us, and although they don't know the details of my illness, they know I'm sick and always ask how thinks are going. As you can imagine, staying at a hotel gets expensive, along with all the other Medical expenses; if I survive this we'll probably max out our insurance and not have coverage anymore. With four children and a husband who recently lost his job, a Best Western gift card would sure help out. I'd give the other one to my mom, who lives in another State, so that it would help her out with costs when she comes and stays to help either me at the hospital or the family at home.

    By Lynn on November 14, 2011 1:50 PM

    I am taking my grandkids and their parents to Miami for a week. We would all use both of them there.

    By Sharon Lewis on November 14, 2011 1:54 PM

    If I had a Gift card I would combine it with our points to go on a nice trip with my Hubby ,who has done so much for us in the last year and a half. Because of stressful things that have been going on in our family, he has been there for all of us. This would be a thank you from all of us.

    By Kurt Knowles on November 14, 2011 1:59 PM

    I would use my card for Best Western in Lahaina, Hawaii on Maui and give the 2nd one away to a charity to raffle off.

    By sylvia pingleton on November 14, 2011 2:02 PM

    What would I do with $250 Gift Card

    Well I would give it to my daughter for her wedding April 20 2012, she's saving like crazy for her wedding, and being a CalFire up north I know she would love that., a little something to start for her getaway.

    By Katie deblack on November 14, 2011 2:02 PM

    I just found out I have a heart condition and I'm only 27 so I wanna start traveling to places on my bucket list so a free night or 2 with the gift card would be awesome! We'd probably stay a week!
    I'd give the other one to my parents! My dad used to go on scuba diving trips and hasn't gone on one in probably 10 years. This could help him by a night or 2 for free out of a week somewhere down south!

    By Pat on November 14, 2011 2:04 PM

    I would give them to my Daughter & Grandkids to come home for Christmas.
    She is a single Mom and has not been able to come back home for 11 years.
    She lives 16 hrs away and I don't get to see them but once a year and not this year. The travel cards would help so much.
    This would be a wonderful Thank-You.

    By Michelle Riehl on November 14, 2011 2:06 PM

    By MichelleR

    The first Best Western gift card, I would give to my husband. We love the Best Westerns and that is the only place we stay anymore. We tell everyone about them.

    The other Best Western gift card I would give to 1 of my children for a Christmas gift so they could take a vacation and have a well deserved break.

    By Pat on November 14, 2011 2:09 PM

    I would give them to my Daughter and Grandkids. They have not been able to come home for Christmas in 11 years. She is a single Mom and lives 16hrs away.
    I only get to see them once a year and won't be able to this year.
    It would make for a wonderful gift.

    By Debra Hazeltine on November 14, 2011 2:13 PM

    What would I do with a $250 Gift Card

    I would use the card to visit my best friend from college in North Carolina. I haven't seen her in years and we used to talk almost every day! I miss her greatly!

    Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?

    My state agency holds a silent auction for charity and I would donate the card to that auction so that we could raise more money for our charity drive.

    By Gail C on November 14, 2011 2:14 PM

    I would use the gift certificate to go to Lancaster, Pa. We have been going up there for over 30 years and love the area. We have stayed at the Paradise Best Western several times.

    I would gvie the gift certifiate to my husband. He is 70 years old and still works hard to see that we can go a few times during the year. He deserves it!!

    By Jamie on November 14, 2011 2:19 PM

    my husband and i are planning a trip to San Antonio, Tx next year. Going to bring our 2 year daughter to Sea World. This gift card would surly help out.

    By Denise Chambers-Kimbro on November 14, 2011 2:23 PM

    I would use my card to go to visit my son at Lock Haven University which is five hours away and or to travel to one of his Lock Haven away soccer games.

    I would give the other card to my daughter and her husband so they too could travel to Lock Haven University to see her brother play in one of his soccer games.

    I love Lock Haven's Best Western Hotel but because of Penn State football it is often booked way in advance. With the card I could book in advance and be able to stay there.

    By Cathy Wallace on November 14, 2011 2:23 PM

    I would use it to travel to Atlanta there was a great area where I stayed at the Best Western would love to go back.

    My family travels so a gift card would great for them as well.

    By Marcy Garcia on November 14, 2011 2:33 PM

    I would give them to this elders group from Merritt, BC.

    By Marian on November 14, 2011 2:41 PM

    I would use the card to take my kids to West Edmonton Mall.

    If I was giving it away I would give it to my parents. Dad works a really stressful job and a break would be good for him!

    By Coral on November 14, 2011 2:43 PM

    I would take my husband on a nice vacation.After my bout with cancer we both had a trying time. He was right there for me and I think could really use it. I would give the other card to my sister because she flew out here to stay with me through everything leaving her job and her family to help me for whatever I needed.

    By Don Sankey on November 14, 2011 2:48 PM

    If I won this card, I would be most happy. We enjoy our stays at Best Western. We have just returned from a trip to South Carolina.
    As a gift, I would give it to my son and his wife. They deserve to stay and have a great evening out in Toronto.

    By Coral on November 14, 2011 2:50 PM

    By Gary Munns on November 14, 2011 2:51 PM

    I would use it to put a smile on somebodies face. Then I would do the same with the other card.

    By Hollie Arenz on November 14, 2011 2:52 PM

    I would use my card to go to the Inn at Face Rock in Bandon, Oregon with my husband to celebrate our 36th aniversary. I would like to make it a family celebration with my son who is back from deployment to Afghanistan.

    The second card would go to my son who will be home on leave from the army. He spent a year in the desert of Afghanistan and I can't think of anything he would like more than to spend time at the beach in the friendly town of Bandon, Oregon.

    By Jim on November 14, 2011 2:52 PM

    I would take a long awaited mini vacation and use the card to enjoy myself with my fianceat some awesome Best Western Hotels.

    The other card I would give to my sister and my brother in law for the same thing.

    By Sarah Robinson on November 14, 2011 2:52 PM

    With a $250 gift card, I would plan a surprise get-a-away for my husband and me. We haven't had that kind of travel fun in too long. with jobs and kids and bills, etc. So we would put it to good use, probably with a beach stay but possibly a trip to the mountains.
    I would give the gift card to myself, my husband, or possibly my son, who has been working real hard and going to school and rarely asks me for anything. That would be a real nice gift, but at 20 I am not sure if he is old enough to use it!

    By Jim on November 14, 2011 2:56 PM

    I would take a long awaited mini vacation.

    I would give the other one to my sister and brother in law. So they could also do do the same.

    By Marti Campbell on November 14, 2011 2:59 PM

    I would use the card when I go visit my son at college in Pullman, WA. This is his first year in college and I haven't seen him since August.

    I would give the card to my daughter's high school club water polo team to use as a raffle item so they could raise money for the team. As a club sport, they do not receive money from the school to pay coaches salary or for travel.

    By wendy on November 14, 2011 2:59 PM

    I would use the one gift card to help out with our 30th Anniversary trip and the second one I would give to my children

    By Jerome Roth on November 14, 2011 3:02 PM

    If I won the 2 $250.00 gift cards, I and my wife would arrange to fly to Reno, Nevada to see my two younger brothers that I haven't seen in over 15 years.
    If I won the other two $250. gift cards, I'd offer them to my older brother and his wife and we could all go to Reno, Nevada together. That might just save me enough money in order to help pay for my son and daughter and my grandaughters to meet us in Reno for a the first and maybe only family reunion, as we are all in our 50's and 60's. Except my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughters, of course.

    By Craig Terasawa on November 14, 2011 3:06 PM

    I would travel every possible place I could travel to! I love traveling, and I love staying at Best Western Hotels!

    By Jas Scott on November 14, 2011 3:08 PM

    I would take my two daughters that are graduating from college next month on a trip down the California coast. We love to stay near Monterey or Seaside on short weekend trips. I think they both deserve a trip for all of their hardwork.

    I would give the $250 Best Western Travel Card to my middle daughter. She is a single mom who picked up the baton to finish college when our eldest daughter passed away in 2004 just missing her Bachelor's degree. It has taken her 7 long years to finish but she is in her last class. She worked full-time and attended college after work dedicating her degree to her eldest sister. She deserves a trip!

    By george on November 14, 2011 3:12 PM

    By Patti daniel on November 14, 2011 3:14 PM

    By jsharp on November 14, 2011 3:14 PM

    I would take my two daugthers on a trip down the California coast as a graduation trip. They are both graduating from college next month.

    I would give the Best Western Travel Card as a gift to my middle daugther who picked up the baton from our eldest daughter who passed away in 2004 just before completing her Bachelor's degree. It has taken her 7 long years working full-time as a single mom and looking after her sister's 2 sons while attending college after work. However, she is in her last class and it ends next month. She deserves a trip.

    I would take my rewards card and travel as much of the USA as I could and stay at as many Best Westerns as possible. Secondly,I would give the other card to my son as they have not been able to take any kind of vacation in a very long time.

    By Patti Daniel on November 14, 2011 3:19 PM

    By Renay Martinez on November 14, 2011 3:37 PM

    My daughter and I would like to go to Orlando, Forida in February to visit Disney World and downtown Disney. We are celebrating her son's third birthday. This would be an awesome gift!

    I would give the card as a birthday present to my only grandson. He will be three years old in February 2012. We are planning a surprise visit to Disney World (his first visit) in Orlando, Florida. We would love to stay the night and experience all we can at Disney. I have stayed at various Best Westerns across Florida and always find the rooms to be very clean and convenient and the staff to be very courteous.

    By Jojobean on November 14, 2011 3:54 PM

    If I won the $250.00 Best Western gift card I would go and visit my daughter in Halifax Nova Scotia. I recently got laid off work and have the time to visit, but not the funds. Isn't that always the way it goes.

    And the $250.00 Best Western gift card I would give to my daughter so she could come home and visit me.

The other card I would give to someone in my family , so that they can enjoy a vacation stay with their family.

    By Ronald Metz on November 14, 2011 4:17 PM

    If I won I would use the card for upcoming business workshops. If I gave one away it would be for my son to use on his university travels.

    By Sylvia Fisher on November 14, 2011 4:19 PM

    My husband has relatives in New Zealand who have been after us for years to come and visit. Would definitely use the travel cards towards this trip, a trip of a lifetime.

    By David longnecker on November 14, 2011 4:30 PM

    I would use both the cards to get two rooms for my wife and I and a seperate one for the grandkids so we did not have to all stay in one room.
    They would not have to listen to me snore
    and
    I would not have to listen to their video games until midnight.

    Wow, it would be wonderful to win two gift cards to Best Western Hotels. My daughter is away as a foreign exchange student in France, I miss her very much! I would go visit her and stay at the Best Western I stayed at years ago there, it was very nice.
    If I had one to give I would give it to my son so he could afford to come stay and see his sister as well.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

    By Steve Holland on November 14, 2011 4:34 PM

    i would love to take my wife away ,i'm a truck driver and she doesnt get away alot this would solve this

    By Sandra Depratt on November 14, 2011 4:45 PM

    My answer is the same for both questions.

    What I would do with the card is give it as a gift to my sister. My sister has been battling breast cancer for the last 3 years. This has been a devastating journey for her both physically and mentally and it has drained all of her savings as well. She is in need of a get away to relax, have some fun and take her mind somewhere else other then her battle but because of the financial struggle it has burdened her with, she cannot afford to get away.

    Even with this illness, she continues to keep a positive and wonderful attitude and fights this illness daily with strength from God. This gift will give her the opportunity she greatly deserves and a vacation she truly needs. She is a wonderful, loving , strong women who I admire and love so very much. Gods love, light and blessings to my baby sis Patti :)

    By don on November 14, 2011 4:45 PM

    I would use one of the travel cards to take my wife on a much needed vacation. She has tackled some big issues lately and could use the down time.

    I would give the other gift card to relative who is down from a lack of work.

    By Jo on November 14, 2011 4:48 PM

    Our family is hoping to go back to Europe next year. One of my sisters lives there and all my extended family and I haven't been back since 2001. Travel cards would allow us to stay in Best Westerns in France when visiting my husband's family.

    A second one would allow us to spend a weekend in Italy or Spain which is our daughter's dream...

    By Meirion Jones on November 14, 2011 4:48 PM

    I would use my voucher for a return to New York, and stay at the Best Western Gregory hotel in Brooklyn, my favourite hotel, near my favourite city, wonderful place wonderful people who I have come to know and love

    By carla madden on November 14, 2011 4:49 PM

    If I were able to give away a $250 Best Western Gift Card I would promptly give it to my best friend, Colleen. Unfortunetly her parents have disowned her for supporting me instead of her sister, who is tangled in drugs and alcohol.She supports her disabled neice and ALWAYS puts her ne e before herself. SHe is a wonderful friend and I would love for she and her niece to get away at one of Best Westerns Beautiful properties!
    Thank you
    Carla

    By Keith Brown on November 14, 2011 4:50 PM

    If we had this card we would invite some good friends with us up to Tahoe and in enjoy the snow.

    By fraz on November 14, 2011 4:50 PM

    One gift card would be used for a weekend get away. The other gift card would be given for my mother to take a trip that she has been talking about for some time now.

    I would use the gift card to visit my parents. And the other card I would give my son to see his grandparents, bringing his children to see their greatgrandparents.

    By Michelle Newkirk on November 14, 2011 4:57 PM

    As an inspector for the state, I travel all over upper Michigan to do my work. Sometimes, my work requires over night stays and I love staying at Best Westerns! I would use one of the Best Western gift cards for myself.

    I would give the 2nd Best Western gift card to my son. He just had his 18th birthday and I didn't give him a very big gift. He is a senior in high school, works 15 hours per week, and still got four A's and one B on his first report card. I am so proud of him! His girlfriend lives about six hours from us so he could use the gift card when he goes to visit her on his Christmas and Spring breaks.

    By judy on November 14, 2011 4:57 PM

    I would use the card to visit my folks, using the other to take my children and grandchildren to visit their grandparents/greatgrandparents.

    By Kristina Waldmiller on November 14, 2011 5:06 PM

    I would surprise my husband with a nice romantic getaway.

    I would give the other card to my Dad because he has done so much to help my husband and I out over the years, while expecting nothing in return.

    By Krystle on November 14, 2011 5:08 PM

    I would use the gift cards for myself and a friend from college who I haven't seen in years to travel to Boston for a girls trip.

    With the other, I would give to my mother to use where she would like, or to visit me in Fredericton.

    By Herman on November 14, 2011 5:08 PM

    If I won a $250 Best Western Travel Card, I would treasure it and hide it under my bed.

    By Deb on November 14, 2011 5:12 PM

    I would use my card to take my hard working hubby on a much deserved get away for our 20th anniversary!

    I would give the other card to my sister......she is overworked and could really use some time away from her jobs.

    By Lori S on November 14, 2011 5:13 PM

    I would use it to take my daughter to see the mountains in Jasper, AB as it is the most amazing site to see and it would be great to have a mother and daughter weekend get away.

    I would also give one to my friend so that she could take her elderly mother away for a weekend as they don't live in the same province and only get to see each other a couple times a year.

    By Mary H on November 14, 2011 5:14 PM

    I would use the first card to see a state my husband and I haven't seen and give the second card to my daughter to help her with moving from one state to another.

    By Judith on November 14, 2011 5:14 PM

    I would use one gift card to take my husband on vacation; I would give the other to him to take me on vacation!

    By Matthew on November 14, 2011 5:16 PM

    I would use the card next spring while in the States to visit my mother-in-law. I would take my wife and young sons from Virginia to Georgia to visit her 90+ year old grandfather. We would use the card to stay in a couple nice hotels on the trip and have a sweet time as a family.

    I would give the card to her grandfather and aunt so they could come over from Mississippi to meet us in Georgia and stay in the same nice hotel. That way, he could see his 3.5 year old great-grandson Joseph (hasn't seen him for 3 years) and his 2 year old great-grandson Blaise (has never seen him).

    By Tannya Blackwood on November 14, 2011 5:17 PM

    If I won the $250 "you must be trippin" travel card, I would find the nearest Best Western and book the weekend, for me. It would be my literal "family vacation." No kids, no animals, no husband. Just ME!

    By Brian M. on November 14, 2011 5:21 PM

    If I won a $250 Best Western Travel Card, it would help with my many visits to Tuscon Arizona that I am going to need to make. My father was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and bone cancer. He has been told he has 6 months to a year to live.

    I would give the $250 Best Western Travel Card as a gift to my Brother so that he could visit our Dad more times than he might be able to.

    By Kerry Miller on November 14, 2011 5:21 PM

    By Harold Gerbrandt on November 14, 2011 6:06 PM

    Our oldest son lives in Toronto and we don't see him much. He has nieces and a nephew who adore him and would love to see him so we would take them all to Toronto to see him. We always stay in Best Westerns and it would be a great Christmas treat for all.

    By Mike Kanarek on November 14, 2011 6:06 PM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?" Visit family in Cooperstown NY, stay at the BW there.

    "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?" My wife, to use in Cooperstown for the next visit, after we use my $250 card.

    By Lyn S. on November 14, 2011 6:07 PM

    I am going to an English teachers' conference in Chicago in February for three days. I'd like to go early to have a few days' of fun before the conference begins. I'd use the gift card for that.

    I think I would give the other one to my friend who recently backed out of a trip I took because she could not afford to go. She is on a fixed income, so I think I would give it to her because she does not get to travel much.

    I would use the gift card to take my little darlin on a weekend getaway. We normally take a big vacation of around 2 to 3 weeks and have 4 or 5 weekend getaways a year on our motorcycles. This spring we built a shop using our available cash and unfortunately there was a slow down at work about the same time. Well, it put a damper on trips this year and my sweetie is getting a bit stir crazy.

    The second card I would give to our son and daughter-in-law, they are driving down from Maryland to spend the Christmas and New Years holidays us. His work was off this year as well so money is tight and they plan to sleep in the car at a rest area to economize which is worrisome in this day and time. My wife and I would sleep better if they were in a cozy Best Western.

    The second card I would use at a silent auction at my church The youth group does one to help raise money for the youth group and their trips.

    I hope you consider my family for this blessing :)

    By Sara on November 14, 2011 6:30 PM

    By S. Williams on November 14, 2011 6:33 PM

    I would use the $250 gift cards to visit my favorite Best Western in Covington, VA. It is where I stay to visit my family. I live 250 miles away from them and look forward to the familiar, comfortable surroundings of The Best Western. The staff is friendly and are actually getting to know me as I continue to visit over the years. The Best Western in Covington VA has the best buffet breakfast in the world and I've never slept on an uncomfortable bed there. I look forward to visiting again over the Christmas holidays. I would give my gift card to my son, who now lives in Clifton Forge so that he could also come back to Tidewater VA and visit with me. Best Western is a true value and predictable quality anywhere we travel.

    By Lisa Harshman on November 14, 2011 6:33 PM

    I'd give the other card to my daughter so she and my grandkids could take a well-deserved vacation trip.

    By melanie m. on November 14, 2011 6:40 PM

    I would go to N.Y. city with the gift cars. I would give the second one to my mother because she grew up there and hasn't been back in over 40 years. It would be the perfect mother daughter getaway.

    By Ditzy on November 14, 2011 6:51 PM

    My parents live in assisted living in the San Diego, Calif. metro area and as they are in very frail health, I like to visit them as often as my job will allow. Airfare between the East Coast (where I live) and San Diego is very expensive having a $250.00 Best Western travel card would greatly help with expenses.

    I would share the card with my daughter to use when she visits her grandparents.

    By TC on November 14, 2011 7:04 PM

    I would give the gift card to my friend, Teresa, who is going through a difficult time. She can do as she pleases with it even if it is to use it at a Best Western in town so that her mom who is undergoing chemo can spend time with her or be closer to the treatment center.

    By Jackie W. on November 14, 2011 7:11 PM

    I'm involved in stock car racing and travel to dirt tracks throughout the Mid-Atlantic States. I would use one of the Best Western Travel Cards for myself so that I wouldn't have to drive back home after the races late at night from tracks that are several hours away.

    I would give the other card to my good friends that own a race car as they often sleep in their pickup truck because most of the tracks they race at are atleast 3 to 5 hours away.

    I would use the card to return to my favorite Best Western in New Mexico and enjoy the beautiful New Mexico skies.

    I will give the card to my son and his family so that they could enjoy an extra treat for the holidays.

    By Esther Nye on November 14, 2011 7:27 PM

    I would use the card to visit my daughter and son-in-law who live in Georgia for New Years.

    I would give a gift card to my son so that he could use it to take my grandson on hockey tournaments.

    By Linda Welch on November 14, 2011 7:35 PM

    I would use the Best Western to get away from home occasionally. Weekends are special.

    I would give the card to my children to visit their grandmother who is in a nursing home with Alzheimers. she will probably not get through the winter months.

    By Mary on November 14, 2011 7:45 PM

    Recently my father passed away and now my mother lives alone in Minnesota. I would give my mother one of the Best Western gift cards so that she could use it to come visit her children who live in California during the holidays. The other card I would use in 2012 for my up coming wedding. I would surprise my future husband with the card and we could both enjoy the Best Western card for our honeymoom.

    By troy fyhn on November 14, 2011 7:53 PM

    I would take my family on a trip to Banff! We haven't been on a vacation in a long time and they would really love it!

    I would give the other card to my mom so she could go visit her sister in BC.

    By Darrell on November 14, 2011 8:08 PM

    My daughter and her friends will be going to California soon and I would give my card to her to use for her and her friends.

    I would give the gift card to my daughter so that she could travel more often.

    By Syvella Kalil on November 14, 2011 8:18 PM

    I would use one $250. Best Western gift card to attend a function that I attend every year for special needs children. The other $250 Best Western gift card I would give to my oldest brother that we have not seen in 23 years, so that he could visit my youngest brother that lost everything in the tornado that hit Alabama.

    By Laura on November 14, 2011 8:21 PM

    I would use the use the card so my husband and I could go visit his 95 year old grandmother in Louisiana... he really wants to go see her since she is so elderly, and she can no longer travel to see the family here in CA.

    The other card I would give to my daughter as a graduation gift... she is a huge Harry Potter fan, and I know she would love to go to Florida to Universal Studios Harry Potter theme Park.

    By Angelika on November 14, 2011 8:21 PM

    If I won the gift card I would use is for me and my two daughters (ages 8 and 13) to stay at a Best Western in Calgary, Alberta and I would use the second one to help my brother and his family (15 year old niece and 12 year old nephew) come down from Edmonton to ring in the new year with my mother. This way we could all be in Calgary together with my mother, who has cancer. She lives in Calgary with our step dad and we barely get to see her since we live in Langley, BC.

    In the summer on 2010 my mother found out that her breast cancer, that had been absent for over ten years, was back. Only this time it is in her hip bone. Weird, huh? According to the Mayo Clinic this is a common occurrence The thing with this type of recurrence is that it is inoperable and incurable. My mother is 69, not very old at all, so this was very hard news for us all to hear.

    We have been trying to be supportive and stay positive but it is hard with my brother and I living so far away from her. Last year we all got together for Christmas and it was great. All the grandkids enjoyed being together and my mom loved having us all together for the holidays.

    We have been lucky enough to have her still in good health this year but we currently have no plans to get together for the holidays. This would be a great way to help with all the costs and give us another holiday together.

    By Charlie on November 14, 2011 8:23 PM

    With a Best Western Travel Card, I'd surprise my wonderful, hardworking husband with a getaway for our upcoming anniversary; and I'd gift my daughters with the second card as a thank-you for their unwavering support as I care for my parents. They could plan a concert trip or a visit with friends we seldom see.

    By Syvella Kalil on November 14, 2011 8:24 PM

    The first $250. Best Western gift card I would use to attend a function that I do every year for special needs children at this time of the year. The other $250 best Western gift card I would give to my oldest brother that the family has not seen in 15 years to use to visit my youngest brother that lost everything in the tornado that hit Alabama this year.

    By L Stapp on November 14, 2011 8:36 PM

    The first $250 gift card would be used for my annual get together with my mom and sister (mom is 88). I live on the Atlantic coast, and they live on the Pacific Coast. For the past few years we have been able to have a girls week to celebrate our birthdays (we were all born in the month of April). This is a precious time for us. Last year we stayed at the Best Western in Hollywood, and we were able to go to be a part of the studio audience for the Price is Right & the Jay Leno show. This was a special time for us. We hope mom will be up for another adventure in 2012.

    The second $250.00 gift card will go to my daughter for a wedding gift. My daughter and her fiance will be graduating this December, and plan to marry in June. Needless to say, any help on the honeymoon would be greatly appreciated.

    By Ron on November 14, 2011 8:40 PM

    My wife and I go on a winter holiday and usually stay at Best Westerns We would be able to stay a few extra days. The other card I would give to our Son and his family

    By Roxana Bryant on November 14, 2011 8:41 PM

    I would use the first Best Western gift card as a "dirty Santa" gift. It would be so much fun to see who would end up with the generous gift!

    I would give the second Best Western gift card to my Mother. She could then afford a much needed vacation to Branson, MO., and hopefully, take me!!!

    By Bea Bull on November 14, 2011 8:45 PM

    I would give one card to my sister who has been very, very ill this past year and recently underwent a mastectomy. She likes to go to a Best Western in a quaint little town with a dear friend where they relax in the hotel's hot tub, enjoy Starbucks at Barnes & Noble, and go to the movies. She's always wanted me to join them so I'd use the other gift card to that end. The three of us would relax and unwind and help my sister heal. I love her dearly.

    By andrea on November 14, 2011 8:47 PM

    Hi, We just moved from Ontario to B.C. and travelled by car through Canada and the U.S. - staying at many pet friendly Best Westerns as we had our JR with us. What I would do with the first $250 card is travel around BC and area to see the wonderful countryside. The other $250 card I would love to give to our daughter so her and her husband and son could go away for a few nights. They have been more than generous letting us stay at their place while waiting for our new home,

    By Larry Nuss on November 14, 2011 9:01 PM

    I would take my wife away for a short trip, she got laid off from her job and we haven't been able to travel anywhere in months.

    By wilford raney, II on November 14, 2011 9:04 PM

    I would give it to my sister who temporarily lives in washington D C - she flies home for holidays and neccessary family times and she brings her dog copper - his trip costs 500.00 - that would be a great treat to her - i would take my money to the next state and play a few horses and slots

    By Sandra Nuss on November 14, 2011 9:10 PM

    My husband and I could go away for a long weekend. I have been down the last two summers with two foot operations, and in June after the second foot surgery I was laid off from my job so it would just be nice to get away.

    I would give the other card away to my sister, that works very hard and would love to go see her oldest son and grandchild that she never gets to see because she can't really spend the money to travel. She would be so surprised.

    By Linda Ray on November 14, 2011 9:17 PM

    I would use the card for my husband's and my 30th anniversary trip, probably to the Oregon Coast.

    I would give the card to a plumber friend of ours who just helped us replace the pipes under our house. He and his wife deserve a few days away after that!

    By Gary on November 14, 2011 9:19 PM

    I would use the $250 card to stay as close to Disneyland as possible...helping pay for my daughter's first trip to see Mickey (she is 2 1/2).

    I would give the other $250 card to my wife's sister so they could join us at Disneyland.

    By Linda Gibson on November 14, 2011 9:22 PM

    I would give both to my sons so that they could go do something special with their families--to make some good memories! It has been a rough few years for many of us and my own family is no exception. Little ones grow up and yet they have never been to Disneyland. I would love to give them all Disneyland! and maybe Grandma could babysit (heaven!) so the adults could have their time too.

    By esther howard on November 14, 2011 9:27 PM

    Would use it to plan a mini holiday - which is long over and it would help to recharge the batteries after awhile one feels like a machine- and ask one of my sisters to come with me -

    By theresa Chartrand on November 14, 2011 9:34 PM

    I would use the $250 card to spend at a lovely suite in Phoenix,Arizona with my husband in January 2012.

    I would give the card to one of my 3 children by drawing their name to see who would be the lucky one;they all deserve a lovely night in a fabulous suite!

    By Sheila Skillingstead on November 14, 2011 9:34 PM

    i would use the first card to celebrate the start of our 40th year together at a warm lodge with plenty of snow outside like the snow that fell on our wedding day.

    The second card I would give to my three daughters so they can meet for a weekend and have a great time together like they do when they travel to each others homes. This way they can visit but also enjoy a bit of luxury/

    By Jane Ellarby on November 14, 2011 9:51 PM

    I would use it for a place to stay when I visit my son when he has his surgery.

    I would give the other to my son for a trip after he has recovered.

    By Sue D on November 14, 2011 9:56 PM

    We are going to a Vancouver Canucks game in Vancouver in March and would use it to stay right downtown near the Arena. It would be fabulous!

    Would give the other to our University student son in Victoria so he could come to Vancouver and join us.

    By Sue D on November 14, 2011 10:00 PM

    I would give the other card to my mother, she is turning 70 next year, and would love to take a trip somewher fun with her sister.

    By Vanessa Williams on November 14, 2011 10:07 PM

    I would use the $250 gift card to stay in your hotel in Montreal Quebec, to watch my son graduate from the army. This is a once in a lifetime event... we are soo proud, we were hoping on our whole family to go but it is very expensive for all 5 of us to go, this gift card would definately help us :)

    I would give the other $250 gift card to my mom and dad. My mom and dad haven't gone on holidays in a very long time, they deserve a break. My mom has glaucoma and my dad lost his job a few years ago and times are tough now.

    By Janice McLean on November 14, 2011 10:09 PM

    I would go somewhere warm to relax. I would give the other card to my son so he could join us.

    By Mirella Stinson on November 14, 2011 10:21 PM

    My husband and i like to be adventerous in travel.It would be a great honour&privilege to discover Elvis's roots in Graceland& journey through time& experience good old country music.To see where the roots of an all time legend lives on.
    The other card would be a dream for our great friends in Atlanta,Georgia to join us with their children to experience the culture&legend of country music together.

    By Tammy on November 14, 2011 10:22 PM

    It would go towards are room for our Disneyland Christmas Trip... With 6 kids this would put more spending money in our pocket..

    I would gift it to my mom who has been taking care of her dad.

    By Sandra Longstreet on November 14, 2011 10:28 PM

    If I won a $250 Gift card I would take my husband on a Anniversary Trip We have been married for almost 16 years and He has worked so hard for our family it would be so nice to give him a few days away he didn't have to work so hard to save for. He works out of town all week and has to stay alone, if we had this we could have fun together..

    I would give the other one to my Dad He and my Mom were married for 55 years, the last 5 years she was sick and bed ridden He took the best care of her a person could get..He deserves to get away in more way than I could ever explain..The best Husband and Father a Girl could have.

    By LG Chaisson on November 14, 2011 10:56 PM

    If I won the gift card, I would use it on a visit to our family out of state. If I had one to give, I would give it to my husband to take me on a vacation !

    By Ejaz on November 14, 2011 11:09 PM

    This card would add to my vacation plans.
    I will give gift card to my wife so she can push the family to plan a vacation!!

    By Carol B on November 14, 2011 11:09 PM

    I would use the first card to take my mom on a trip to Nashville. Neither one of us has ever been there & I know she's always wanted to go there. She's in her late 70's and has been taking care of my dad who is a blind veteran from the Korean War plus she's been taking my sister in law who has bone cancer for chemo & doing her shopping & errands for her. If anyone deserves a treat...my mom does! She would absolutely love to visit the Grand Old Opry, the Country Music museum and see the shows there. She would be thrilled to enjoy a chance to relax in a comfy room at a Best Western where they always treat their guests right.

    The second card would go to my sister in law and brother. After having survived breast cancer in her thirties, at 45, she's now been battling the painful disease of bone cancer for a number of years now. My brother has been out of work on disability and taking care of her as best as he can. They have had it really hard for quite a while now and I know they would be beyond thrilled to be able to get a few days away at a Best Western.

    Winning these two cards would mean the world to 3 very deserving people.

    By diamond on November 14, 2011 11:14 PM

    i would use them to take my best friend on a fishing trip, preferably maui! the other i would give to family or go to palm springs & go wild, lOL~~~~

    By Sharon on November 14, 2011 11:25 PM

    I would use the first card to take the kids for a trip to Eugene. My grandson lives with me, my ex (his grandfather,) his family, and some of my family live up that way. This way we could swim an relax.

    The second one I would give a way to a person enlisted in the military. This way they could plan an escape on their own or with a loved one. I would need help with that as I do not know many military that are coming back from servin a tour of duty. I might just give it to the red shirt society to send to a enlisted person.

    By Marina on November 14, 2011 11:39 PM

    I would take my father to Salt Lake city to finish his geneology search. He is 80 this year and and is researching his family history; he feels the need to finish this; so he can pass the information on to the next generation. I would like to donate the second card to the wish foundation so a child who is sick, can make a dream come true.

    By Thomas Ticknor on November 15, 2011 12:06 AM

    I would use to to travel back to Michigan to see my Mother-in-law who is currently recovering from having bladder cancer. I have been out or work for almost 2 years now and this would really help considering we have to drive up to Michigan and stay in a hotel there and back. I would give the other one to her so when she gets well enough she can go and have a mini vacation at a great Best Western of her choice and forget about the hardship she has endeared so far.

    By Benjamin Kendall on November 15, 2011 1:34 AM

    I would give both gift cards to my Parents so they could visit my Family more often and spend time with my youngest Daughter.

    By Donna Amis Davis on November 15, 2011 3:01 AM

    I would use the card for a couple of nights at the Best Western in South Bay/Torrance/Redondo Beach after arriving from an international flight with my husband, so I could spend time with my daughter and her husband who live in Torrance.

    Then I would take the other gift card and give it to my sister, so hopefully she and I could take a sisters getaway for a couple of days to catch up on each other's lives.

    By Kelly G. on November 15, 2011 3:39 AM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?"

    I would take a trip somewhere in Michigan with my sister and friend. I would love to travel very soon and this would definitely help a lot.

    I would give this Best Western gift card to my sister, she would love to have it!

    By Phyllis Price on November 15, 2011 3:45 AM

    In the Past two years, we have ben tried down with family. Not getting a chance to get away. I lost 2 sisters unexpectedly, so I think I would take a short trip & go back to the Smokies.

    By Victoria Lester on November 15, 2011 3:50 AM

    I would spend a $250 BW Travel Card by staying at the
    BEST WESTERN Kirkwood Inn
    1200 South Kirkwood Road
    Saint Louis, MO
    63122
    I'd take my daughter to the Magic House Children's Muesem. She deserves a nice vacation as I was a caregiver for my mom 24/7 for 6 years and we weren't able to take a vacation. She passed sadly, although we can now go on vacation.

    I would give my daughter's friend's mom the $250 BW Travel Card, so they can come out and stay and we can all get together and swim in the Best Western pool. They live in Niagra Falls, Canada.

    By Nancy Reid on November 15, 2011 3:55 AM

    My son is about to start a new job after working part time and occasional jobs since graduating college! It will require a lot of travel and stays out of town. I would give his the Best Western Card to help him get a start. Having the Best Western Card would sure help him out especially in the beginning as going to take time to start making money in this sales position. I know it will put a big smile on his face and it will give me peace of mind knowing that while he is away from home he will be staying in a hotel which is part of the Best Western family. I've already suggested he check out your rewards program to accumulate points for future stays. Thank you for making this opportunity possible. I am sure keeping my fingers crossed that we get lucky. Happy Thanksgiving!!

    By Phyllis Price on November 15, 2011 4:03 AM

    I would use this for my road trip to NY from GA. Instead of rushing through my family and I could check out a different state along the way.
    I would give the other to my sister so she could join us on the trip with her 2 children.

    By Jamie Casolari (@JamieCasolari) on November 15, 2011 4:18 AM

    I would use the Gift Card to visit my adult daughter...I miss her so much!

    I would gift the other card to my daughter and her partner....after being in college for 6 years, studying hard and working toward establishing a beautiful future ...they need a bit of a break. This would allow them a weekend away from the pressures of work, school and college loans.

    By Kirsten on November 15, 2011 4:45 AM

    My husband and I are debating a winter getaway to Phoenix or Vegas in February to escape the tailend of winter in Canada.

    I would gladly give the other card to my sister-in-law and her husband because they need a getaway too. She has been dealing with alot of family stuff because they live closest to the chaos -- she needs a break.

    By Sue on November 15, 2011 4:56 AM

    I live on the East Coast, and I would use a $250 Best Western Travel Card to cross the Mississippi and see some of the US. Of course, seeing new things is more fun when you have someone to share it with, so I could bring my best friend with a $250 Best Western Travel Card gift.

    By ian carroll on November 15, 2011 4:59 AM

    I would rent 2 Best Western rooms at the beach and invite my son and his family to stay with us. Best Western is our home away from home. For our grandchildren, it would be like visiting grandmom at her beach home.

    I would give it to my boyfriends family so they could visit. They haven't visited St. Louis in years, and would love to see us and the different landmarks!

    By Joyce Falk on November 15, 2011 5:50 AM

    We are planning a trip to Guntersville AL over the holidays to visit some very dear friends. We have stayed at the Best Western there multiple times and enjoy the view, the service and the convenience. This card would help to offset our expenses.

    I would give the second card to my daughter so her family could have a family vacation. She has MS and a son who is autistic. They have never taken a family vacation and I would love to give them this gift. Even if it is only a long weekend.

    By Scott Carroll on November 15, 2011 5:53 AM

    The second card would go to my daughter who loves to travel and stay in different Best Western locations.

    By John Baugh on November 15, 2011 6:43 AM

    We are planning a 2 week family vacation this summer, visiting the Southeast. My children have not been back east before, so we will use the travel card for stays throughout our journey. This is an experience I want them to have before they move out on their own. Some of the best times of my life was traveling with my family.

    I would like to give the 2nd gift card to my mother in law, so she can visit her daughter, and garnd kids in Ohio. She misses them dearly, and gets to only see them every 2 years.

    By Tom McManus on November 15, 2011 6:58 AM

    I stay at Best western for business purposes. I would combine the gift cards with my points to take my wife on a vacation to the keys because she really deserves and needs it.

    I would like to help my Mother in Law take a vacation to Florida which she really needs.

    By Empty Nester on November 15, 2011 6:59 AM

    I'm a lonely empty-nester. One would be used to go see my kids and grandkids. The other to have them come visit me!

    My son just moved to Calgary, B.C. with his friends. Although, you would think I would have a place to stay when I go visit, that is impossible as he shares a house with 5 people. Therefore, the $250 travel card assures me at least 1 free Best Western night next July during the Calgary Stampede.

    The second card would go to my brother as he loves to go to the casino in Niagara Falls. He doesn't go often and having a free night or two would boost his spirits of having a bargain on accommodations even if the gambling doesn't pay off.

    By M Van Dyke on November 15, 2011 7:58 AM

    I would use them to visit my brand new wonderful group of dear, dear friends. They are more like family really. A bright blessing for me that I have found them!

    By Jason D on November 15, 2011 8:18 AM

    I would use it to travel to Vancouver, Bc and see my family. This gift would allow me to stay at Best Western and would definetly take advantage of the opportunity.

    By Jeff Golich on November 15, 2011 8:21 AM

    The gift card will be used for my daughter's annual nationals dance competition, which takes us around the country each year to watch her perform. We try to stay in Best Western hotels as often as we can.

    By Tom Stewart on November 15, 2011 8:38 AM

    I would use it to visit my Son in Vancouver

    I would give a card to my friend David

    By Jack Moran on November 15, 2011 8:42 AM

    I would travel with my friend, Cathy
    I would give the second card to my friend, Cathy.

    By Joan LeVasseur on November 15, 2011 8:44 AM

    I drive an elderly friend from Montreal to Florida and back every year so the
    gift cards would be fantastic as she insists on staying at Best Western along the way.
    We have stayed in some great places too as we take an extra day coming home.
    She would have enough to stay longer if I gave her the card.

    By Happy Family on November 15, 2011 8:44 AM

    The first card I would give to our son so he could use it anytime he needed a 'get away' from college and his job, he is a great student and we are very proud of him. The other card I would use to take our daughter to Universal Studios, she is so wonderful.

    By Catherine Whitney on November 15, 2011 8:47 AM

    I've been sending many folks to Best Westerns through my job in travel. I would love to see some of these properties for myself!

    I would give a second card to my sister. She has had a tough year and could use a little pampering!

    By Kurt Hauer on November 15, 2011 8:51 AM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?" Use it to stay at a wonderful Best Western Location on a vacation to Europe.


    "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?" My parents to allow them to come visit us!

    By Nicole Derosier on November 15, 2011 8:53 AM

    I would use the first card to go back to The St. Christopher in New Orleans, LA. We went there over Halloween Holiday and it was fabulous. The staff were extremely helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious. The housecleaning staff are meticulous. All in all we had a fabulous time and stayed in the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.
    The other card I would give to my mother. She loves to travel. Although we went to New Orleans, she didn't want to intrude on our holiday, but I would love for her to go to the St. Christopher. It really is a lovely historic hotel with alot of history.

    By Dave Butler on November 15, 2011 8:59 AM

    I would stay at the Best Western in Banff, so I could enjoy the Mountains.

    I would give it to my daughter who lives in a central american country, so that she could enjoy one of the Best western hotels in that country

    By Phyllis on November 15, 2011 9:02 AM

    My daughter-in-law just got her doctorate degree.. She takes care of my son, her 3 boys and her mother. She NEEDS a vacation.

    By Jaime on November 15, 2011 9:15 AM

    I would use the card to take a much needed trip to visit my best friend.

    If I was to give it away I would give it to my best friend to come and visit me sometime.

    By TERRY MICHAEL on November 15, 2011 9:17 AM

    EVERY OCT. I MEET SOME FRINDS I USE TO WORK WITH IN CRAIG CO. FOR OUR YEARLY DEER HUNT,WE ALL LIVE IN DIFFERANT PARTS OF THE COUNTRY,BUT WE ALL STAY AT THE BEST WESTERN IN TOWN ,
    BEING RETIRED AND ON A FIXED INCOME THIS REWARDS CARD WOULD
    HELPA LOT.


    THE OTHER CARD I WOULD GIVE TO MY WIFE,SHE LIKES TO GO TO CRAFT FAIRS AND CLASSES TO OF TOWN AND OUT OF STATE.

    By Barbara Valois on November 15, 2011 9:48 AM

    My husband has wanted to visit the Napa Valley wineries for many years. We are retired and most of our travelling has been to Montreal, Quebec, Canada to visit and provide assistance to my husband's 81 year old sister who is in a home in Lachine, Quebec and suffers from Alzheimers. We stay at the Best Western in Dorval and try to collect points to use for a trip. I would use the first card and give the second as a gift to my husband. This would enable us to drive to Napa Valley from Vancouver and spend a couple of days wine tasting.

    By Laura on November 15, 2011 9:51 AM

    I would use the card to take my daughter away. She has never really been on a vacation. It would be just mommy and me time.

    The second card i would give to my mother, she has done the most for me. She is so deserving of a vaction and will not do it for herself. She put everyone's needs before herself.

    By rosemary doherty on November 15, 2011 9:54 AM

    We have always enjoyed our stay at the best western. If we won we could celebrate our 45 th wedding anniversary just past this July. We would use it on our trip to Florida .
    We would give our son & family the gift card for their hockey tournaments. They have 2 children playing and it really help them out.

    By Terry Tucker on November 15, 2011 9:59 AM

    I would take my wife on a much deserved trip to one of the fine Best Western locations, and treat her like the Queen she is! I would share the other card with our youngest son (unemployed for over a year), for a promising break!

    By Doria on November 15, 2011 10:01 AM

    I would love to take my 3 boys on a holiday to Disney land in Florida. They are just entering their teen age years and it is time to take them.

    I would give my sister Mona the gift card so she could join us on the Florida holiday because she is like my boys' second mom.

    By Wayne S. Young on November 15, 2011 10:24 AM

    I would use one card for my wife and I to have a great weekend in Vancouver.

    I would give the other to my wife to enjoy as she likes to travel to Ireland and Wales with Best Western gift cards.

    By JIMMY WINSTEAD on November 15, 2011 10:26 AM

    I would give it to my wife and let her get to go somewhere for a few days. She always puts me first.

    By Jodi on November 15, 2011 10:30 AM

    I would take my dog with me on a vacation.

    I'd give the other one to my best friend so she could stay in the room next to us.

    By Christine Hall on November 15, 2011 11:19 AM

    Both $250 Best Western Travel Cards would allow me the opportunity to take my mother away to a destination of her choice (most likely Montreal) in an effort to assist her healing process as we both recover from the devastating and unexpected loss of my beloved brother recently. Being able to return to our hometown and honour our memories of my brother would be an amazing blessing. Thank you for this opportunity!

    By Pearl on November 15, 2011 11:32 AM

    I would give it to my spouse Larry. He has seen me through 2 gruelling years of Cancer surgery and treatments, then a skull fracture and concussions. He deserves it and we always stay Best Western because they are the BEST.

    By Karen Ishizuka on November 15, 2011 11:45 AM

    My husband and I are planning a 40th anniversary trip to Tuscany next year. I would use the card for the trip. I would give the other card to my husband to use on this very special trip.

    By Mary Schlabch on November 15, 2011 11:47 AM

    I would use the gift card to take my grandchildren to Disney. I promised my grandson when he turns 4, I would take him to Disney. He is all excited. Turns 4 in Jan. 2012.

    I would give the other gift card to my daughter, who will accompany me to Disney with my grandchildren.
    Thank you for giving us the chance.

    By Karen on November 15, 2011 12:02 PM

    My husband and I would use this gift card to defray the cost of our medical appointments out of town.

    We would give this gift card to the McDonald's house so they could give this to relatives that had family members in a hospital outside of their home region.

    By June Spencer on November 15, 2011 12:48 PM

    I would use my gift card to attend a NASCAR Race to watch Clint Bowyer drive for Michael Waltrip Racing and hope they show up in the hotel breakfast room.

    I would give the other gift card to my daughter who's a single Mother and can't really afford vacations for her and my Grandson.

    By Sue Davidson on November 15, 2011 12:52 PM

    My husband and I are taking a romantic cruise and we would need a night's stay both coming to Florida and going back home. We are on a fixed budget so this Best Western gift card would really help us out.

    I would give the other gift card to the couple traveling with us.

    By R. Daniele on November 15, 2011 12:54 PM

    I would love to take my children and step children on a small getaway weather it is for a short weekend or a week, just to take the time to relax from the everday hussle and bustle and be together as a family for some good times, lots of laughs and new memories.

    By R. Daniele on November 15, 2011 12:59 PM

    I would love to go somewhere with my children and stepchildren to laugh and make some new memories, a long weekend of not thinking about having to go to a dr.appointment and just be free of everyday worries.

    By Chanda McFarland on November 15, 2011 1:13 PM

    I would use the Best Western Travel card to stay at Best Western hotels that are near where my daughters go to college. I have two daughters that are in college. One is 5 hours from me and the other is 7 hours from me. I could use these to go and visit them more often or attend their track meets as they are both pole vaulters in college and travel all over the United States. I could then attend more of their meets.

    I would give the other gift card to both girls to split so they could come home more. It would make it easier for them to come home if they could stay on the way back at a hotel between home and their colleges.

    By Cheryl Ahrens on November 15, 2011 1:14 PM

    I would fly to Italy and go to the Best Westerns we saw over there in all the lovely cities.

    I would give the other prize to my Mum and have her come with me to share Italy together.

    By Pamela Dorsey on November 15, 2011 1:24 PM

    With my $250 Best Western Travel Card, I will buy a new red dress and dancing shoes to wear on my cruise to Alaska. . .with travel always preceeded by a night at the BW El Rancho near San Francisco Airport!

    I plan to give the other BW Travel Card to my teenage grandson who has been my travel partner for several years. . .and, he dances with me!

    By Joy on November 15, 2011 2:00 PM

    I would use these gift cards to take my aunt to the San Francisco bay area. She is from the east coast and has always wanted to see the beautiful Golden Gate.

    By Wayne S on November 15, 2011 2:13 PM

    I travel to Florida once a year for work, and the travel card would go a long way to reducing my expenses!

    I would give the other card to my girlfriend, so she could come with me on my next business trip!

    By Jean Bauerle on November 15, 2011 2:21 PM


    I would use the gift card to travel to see my grandaughters play travel softball.

    I would give the other gift card to my son so they could stay at the same hotel with us on our softball travels.

    By peggy castle on November 15, 2011 2:33 PM

    i would use it to help my daughter and her three young sons travel to the next family reunion. she has missed out in the past due to lack of money. the other card i would give to my best friend so she could get away from her very hectic life for a well needed vacation.

    By Robert Terhune on November 15, 2011 2:34 PM

    As a Navy vet, I just used a Best Western Travel Card at a reunion of my first ship at the Best Western Mainstay Inn of Newport, Rhode Island. So I would use another card for the next reunion which is coming up in 2012.

    I would give the other card to my wife who loves to take weekend shopping trips as we live in a smaller town. She tells me she is keeping the economy from going into another recession.

    By Elena on November 15, 2011 2:38 PM

    I am planning a much anticipated trip with 3 other family members. It's actually a ladies get away weekend. We have had numerous conversation on going to New Orleans but unfortunately we haven't been able to make it. My sister-in-law has had heart problems and she hasn't been able to make many trips, my sister was laid off for the past year and a half and my cousin for one reason or another hasn't been able to go to New Orleans in the past. So we finally decided that we are all going to do it in the next couple of months. So I would use one travel card for my self and my sister and I would give the other to my sister-in-law and my cousin.

    By KellyAnn Bernard on November 15, 2011 2:39 PM

    As a single mom it would able me do some fun things with my daughters, like Sea World, Disneyland and other small vacation trips. I would also give one to my parents who are on social security and a fixed budget. My Dad is in bad health with heart working at 27% and diabetes. This would also give them sometime to spend with me and the granddaughters and be able to take some small trips also.

    By Sandy on November 15, 2011 2:41 PM

    I would give the gift card to my husband for his annual motorcycle trip to Vermont.

    By Jim Grimm on November 15, 2011 3:03 PM

    I would donate the both the cards to a family in need!!!

    One of my granddaughters (3 yrs old) was diag. with Lukemia a year ago, doing fine now!!!! So I would give the cards to a cancer socitey of some sort!!

    By Connie Smith on November 15, 2011 3:14 PM

    I sure would love to win a $250 Travel Card. Our son is in the Army and based in Washington (we're in Wisconsin) He was in Iraq for a year and in the last year only saw him a couple hours while he was home for 2 hectic days while visiting his ailing grandmother in the hospital. We would love to visit him in Tacoma but due to my disability, I haven't been able to work and we live on only 1 income. It's only the necessities for us. This would afford us the opportunity to visit him and have some quality time with him.

    I would give the other card to my sister. She works a full time job, a wonderful dedicated mother to my 3 1/2 yr old niece, and is sole provider for her family. She has battled cancer and lives with painful lupus. She does all of this and so much more. She always says yes to anyone who asks for help and always with a smile on her face. She always puts everyone before herself. She deserves both travel cards in my opinion.

    By Polly on November 15, 2011 3:24 PM

    I would use it for our next family reunion.

    I would give the other to a family member for the same.

    By Robert M on November 15, 2011 3:36 PM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?
    My Aunt's daughter is getting married. This is my Mother's sisters daughter. My mom hasn't seen her family in years.
    My Mother is agoraphobic and will not be able to travel alone. With this card I would help offset the cost of our accommodations so I might be able to take my Mother back East to see her family.


    "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?"
    I would give it to my Cousin and her new husband as a wedding gift from my Mother.

    By amber on November 15, 2011 3:43 PM

    I would use the gift card to go on a baby moon. I only have a couple more months and would love to get away one last time before baby is born.

    I would give the other card to my parents who are always so helpful but they never do anything for themselves.

    By colin on November 15, 2011 3:46 PM

    First one for my son and wife to visit his daughter who he has not had the opportunity of getting to know very well for a long, long time.

    Second one for me and a friend to getaway for a few days to a new place.

    By Don on November 15, 2011 4:24 PM

    I would give the first card to my eldest, she is raising her two little boys and attending college full time. She and her Hubby deserve a getaway, even if it involves the little ones, lol.

    Second card would be for my wife and I, we are headed to San Diego at Christmas to enjoy the warmth of Southern California once again.

    By Paula on November 15, 2011 5:20 PM

    What would I do with a $250 BW card? Well, for me that's easy... I would use it towards the rooms I will be booking for my trip to New Orleans and Graceland. I'm going with my husband and two of our best friends (newlyweds). We can't wait! Or perhaps I'd use it next year when my husband and I take our annual anniversary trip out east.

    The second gift card would come in very handy for my mother and father. They deserve a huge break from their everyday craziness. My mother will be 70 soon and needs time to simply relax. With this, she'd be able to do so wherever she chose. How nice would that be!

    By Patsy McAuliffe on November 15, 2011 6:04 PM

    I travel alot with my job working on wounds in nursing homes, My husband works and takes care of most everything at home, yard, pet, etc. I would love to win these cards and take a vacation to St Thomas USVI. These would help with the cost alot.

    By andrew siemens on November 15, 2011 7:09 PM

    I would use it to try and see all the beautiful national parks North America has to offer. There is so many amazing features from Old faithful, to the Grand Canyon, to the Oregon Coast and Banff and Whistler. I want to embrace as much as our beautiful continent as possible.

    By Wraye Leskiw on November 15, 2011 7:36 PM

    What I would do with a $250. Best Western gift card is I would use it to get together with as many family members and relatives as possible over the holidays. I would give the other $250. gift card to my elderly father who is in very poor health to use as he has always been there for all of us whenever someone was in need. Most times he made huge sacrifices to make sure that we had everything we needed as kids.
    I would love to see him smile one last time as this may be his last christmas together with the family. Thank You!!! so very much.

    By Sarah M on November 15, 2011 7:52 PM

    The first Best Western card, my husband and I could use for a winter mini-vacation. February can get tedious, and some fun-in-the-sun would be a nice break.

    I would give the second Best Western gift card to my youngest sister and her husband, for their own mini-vacation. My sister is having major surgery soon, and when she can travel again I think the vacation would help her recoup some energy.

    By Craig R on November 15, 2011 7:54 PM

    I would give one gift card of $250 to my son and daughter-in-law for a trip to Florida so she could see Disney during the Christmas Holidays. This would help them make that dream come true; she is a third grade teacher and is in her fourth year of teaching. MB loves children and really deserves a nice weekend away with my son, as their first anniversary is one week before Christmas. MB works with each of her students to ensure they are progressing and are successful--many of her students have learning and medical issues--but that doesn't stop either the students or her. If you can dream, you can believe and it will come true.

    The last gift card I would use to take my wife on a nice weekend to St. Augustine after Christmas. My wife's Dad passed away coming up on four years ago, right after Thanksgiving and this year she is struggling with his loss. They meant the world to each other, and when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer---they talked and spent time together. My wife's Dad lived in northern Illinois and she went 6 times in just under 20 months to spend time with her Dad. She loves St. Augustine and it would be a special surprise for her. My wife is a great mom and does everything she can to help others and pay it forward to people and pets (rescue organizations) in our area....it's time to give her a special weekend. thanks and look forward to our family staying with you once again.

    By Lydia on November 15, 2011 8:25 PM

    I would use the gift card for a 40th wedding anniverary trip to visit the western part of the United States. I have always dreamed of visiting Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Tetons.

    The second gift card I would give to my daughter and family so they could join us on our anniversary trip.

    By Justin Clapper on November 15, 2011 8:45 PM

    I would use the card to stay in Calgary and go skiing in Banff

    i would give the other to my brother ,as we have not been skiing together since we were kids

    By Deidre on November 15, 2011 9:10 PM

    I would love for my husband and I to take a great trip with the one card, it's our 25th Wedding Anniversary and it would be wonderful to have that to help us out!

    The other to my girlfriend, so her family can come and visit her parents, siblings and us whenever she is able to come! We miss them terribly!!

    By CJ on November 15, 2011 9:44 PM

    My husband travels for work 365 days a year. We mostly travel in our rv, but sometimes its not cost effective to move the whole shebang just for a couple of days a couple of hundred miles away - so my husband stays in hotels, Best Westerns where available. We would use the $250 for - work expenses...and yes pay taxes on it! How boring!

    We would like to give the $250 to the couple that takes care of our mail at Mail Plus Chehalis...they do a stellar job at being our link between home base and duty locations. We always have the good intention of getting them a thank you gift, but seem to be always pinching pennies - this wold be a great way for us to say "thank you" so they could get away and have some fun in Reno!! Whoo hooo!!!

    By Jean Jenco on November 15, 2011 11:02 PM

    I would use the card to stay at the Best Western in Pigeon Forge TN at Christmas! I would love to see the Smoky mountains with snow on them. I would give the second card to my granddaughter so she could see the mountains with me!

    By Marsha Webb on November 16, 2011 12:16 AM

    I would use it to go on a trip with my husband. I would give the other to my sister because she needs to take a break from work and get away.

    By Erin on November 16, 2011 12:26 AM

    I would use the card to visit my kids away at college in the Northwest. The other card I would would gift to my sister she has had a tough time this past year and really needs to get away........of coure it might have to be a "girls weekend" trip with me!

    By Sarah on November 16, 2011 12:37 AM

    I am going to visit the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, Georgia next year when their new Jim Henson Exhibit Wing opens, I would love to use the $250 Best Western Travel Card for that!

    I would give the other $250 Best Western Travel Card as a gift to my mom!

    By Hal on November 16, 2011 1:04 AM

    I'd use it to get away with my family on a lil vacation. My little boy would love it.

    I'd give the second one to my hard working dad, who deserves the best! :)

    Thanks so much for the chance!! :) :)

    By Gerard Donahue on November 16, 2011 2:56 AM

    I would use it for a romantic vacation with my wife near our wedding anniversary which will be 15 yrs next July. The other one I would give to a friend who has been going through some rough times like a loss of a job.

    By William Cooke on November 16, 2011 3:40 AM

    I would use it to take me and my lady on a short get away from it all road trip to unwind from a very difficult year, deaths in family and friends, multiple surgeries, and struggles due to economy

    By William Cooke on November 16, 2011 3:44 AM

    I would use the card for a short weekend getaway with my lady because we have had a tough 2 years and need a break from life.

    I would give it to my Mother whose spouse of 28 years just passed away so she could travel to the areas her grandchildren now live

    By tracey byram on November 16, 2011 4:01 AM

    I'd give the cards to my daughter so she could use it next year when she and her family vacations in Destin, FL. Maybe they'll even take me with them.

    By liz grover on November 16, 2011 4:13 AM

    First I would jump up and down and flip my first cartwheel ever (well atleast I'd try lol) if I WON!!
    I would find a Best Western in south florida and take the family there over the holidays! My husband didn't really get a summer vacation and he needs a vacation BAD! My son will be home from college and I would pack the family up and go. HEAVEN :)
    Then I would give the other gift card to a friend of ours whose family is suffering financially right now so hopefully they could have some fun and time together as a family as well! I hope you find us worthy!!! Good luck to all :)

    By Cathy A on November 16, 2011 4:25 AM

    I would use the gift card to travel to San Francisco in the spring. I love that area of the country..not only that I love driving across the US and getting of the Interstate/freeway and seeing parts of the country that you don't see on the main thoroughfare. It seems like there is a Best Western about anywhere you go.

    I would give the second one to my daughter! She and her husband are celebrating their 10th anniversary this year and this would be a great anniversary present.

    By AB Smith on November 16, 2011 4:27 AM

    We are traveling to FL several times in 2012 and could really use the extra help of a few free hotel nights to my our tight budget stretch further!

    I would give card # 2 to my mom who also loves to travel and loves Best Western!

    thanks for sponsoring this!

    By Michelle Merrifield on November 16, 2011 4:28 AM

    I would use it to go to West Virginia to see my daughter and grandson, I would give the other one to my other daughter so she could go with me.

    By darlene morash on November 16, 2011 5:42 AM

    My life this past year has been in constant turmoil so the first one would be used for a totally selfish weekend getaway. Somewhere quiet and peaceful just for me.

    The second one I would give to my parents. My dad just recently lost his only brother and I would like to give him his own away time. Space for him to feel better.

    By Michele Soussana on November 16, 2011 6:20 AM

    I would use the first card for myself. I desperately need to get away from it all and relax for the weekend.

    I would give the other one to my husband. I desperately need him to get away from it all so I could relax for the weekend.

    By Elena on November 16, 2011 6:42 AM

    I have been planning a much anticipated girls weekend get away with my sister, sister-in-law and cousin. My sister-in-law has had some heart problems, my sister has been laid off for about a year and a half, I've had some financial difficulties as well and my cousin has had some personal hardship too. We've talked and planned on going to New Orleans but something would always get in the way and we wouldn't be able to go. So now we have decided to just do it and take sometime for ourselves, a much needed forget about the drama and clear our mind and have some fun trip. So I would keep one card for myself and share it with my sister and give my sister-in-law and cousin the other card and enjoy ourselves in New Orleans.

    By Ronald Shollenberger on November 16, 2011 7:58 AM

    My wife and I are going across the USA to see the National Parks and I would use the travel card for rooms. I would give a travel card to my sister as she helps my wife and I with my wife's home hemo dialysis

    By sharon middlebrooks on November 16, 2011 8:48 AM

    We are planning a trip to Ingleside, Tx. for Christmas, as my son and daughter-in-law are expecting their first dughter on Jan 4th and she can't travel home for Christmas, so we are going to them. They live in a camper as they work for a construction company and we would not be able to stay with them. We have stayed at the Best Western there before and will stay there again . The other card we would give to other 3 children and families as they are going also for Christmas.

    By Sharon Spicer on November 16, 2011 10:01 AM

    I would use a $250 Best Western giftcard at my favorite Best Western... Lapeer, MI. I would give my sister a $250. Best Western gift card because she works hard and never gets to go away with her kids.

    By Gregory Bennett on November 16, 2011 10:34 AM

    I would use one of the gift cards to take my wife and kids on a well deserved weeked getaway. I would give the other one to my parents, who are enjoying there retirement and love to travel.

    By Rachel N on November 16, 2011 11:34 AM

    I would take a much need me time vacation. Worklife has been hectic lately and some personal quite time would be great.

    I would travel to travel to somewhere I've never been since my goal is to visit all 50 states at least once.

    If all else falls I would take my kids somewhere they have never been.

    By Debbie S. Redmond on November 16, 2011 11:36 AM

    Best Western means Road Trip! Comfort, Clean Rooms, Excellent Service and Family Fun. I would take my family on a Beautiful Beach Get-A-Way. That is how I would spend $250.00.

    By Muriel on November 16, 2011 11:48 AM

    I would give the gift cards to ME. I purchase gift cards every year, with my Air Miles Points, for our accommodations to and from Florida.

    By Gene R. Abel Sr on November 16, 2011 12:07 PM

    If I won a gift card I would share it with our family in a drawing at our Christmas gathering.

    If I gave a card as a gift I would give it to our youth group at our Lutheran church to help finance its youth conference trip to New Orleans, LA next summer.

    By Gene R. Abel Sr. on November 16, 2011 12:10 PM

    If I won a gift card I would share it with my family this Christmas at our family gathering. I would give a card to our youth group at our Lutheran church for its youth in financing the conference in New Orleans, LA this summer

    By Gene R. Abel Sr on November 16, 2011 12:15 PM

    My husband and I would take a trip to celebrate our anniversary in June.

    I would give a card as a gift to our family members in a drawing this Christmas at our family gathering.

    By Joye R on November 16, 2011 12:58 PM

    My husband & I could use a getaway. We haven't gotten away for a trip for over 6 years. Maybe a beach trip or to Texas to visit family.

    The other card I would give to my daughter so she could take her family on a well deserved vacation.

    By Sue Brower on November 16, 2011 1:11 PM

    I would use it next April towards a trip to San Diego when our great-grandchild will be born!
    Then I would give a card to my granddaughter to buy things for their new little one.

    By Mary Phillips on November 16, 2011 1:40 PM

    I would use the gift card to visit my daughter at college in Virginia. There is a great Best Western near the University of Mary Washington campus and I would stay there again!
    I would give a gift card to my husband so he might consider taking my daughters somewhere on spring break...and maybe me too!

    By Bonnie Hudock on November 16, 2011 3:30 PM

    I am planning a ski trip with my family in Fernie and Schweitzer and would really like to be ablet to stay at the Best Western's there. If I win I would like to give a gift card to my sister since she is expecting and it would be really nice for her to have a little holiday away with her family.

    By Raina Beeksma on November 16, 2011 3:32 PM

    For myself, I would certainly find a babysitter and have a couple nights away with my love.

    As a gift, I would give it to my parents. A night away is always welcomed and would give them a chance to relax

    By Marcy L. on November 16, 2011 6:27 PM

    I would use the gift card to enjoy some time in New Orleans with my husband.

    I would give the other to my parents for a couple of nights away!

    By Cheryl Zwack on November 16, 2011 6:35 PM

    I would use the gift card to go on a trip for out 30th Wedding Anniversary.

    I would give the other to my daughter for her to use as a Honeymoon get away for which they never had.

    By Cheryl Zwack on November 16, 2011 6:38 PM

    I would use it to celebrate out 30th wedding anniversary.

    I would give the other to my daughter for her to use as a honeymoon get away for which they never took.

    By Marcia Lee on November 16, 2011 7:08 PM

    I would take my precious sister to the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas so she could see her daughter--who was just crowned Miss Rodeo Canada 2012 represent Canada at her first major event.

    I would love to give my niece, Arleta Bowhay, Miss Rodeo Canada, a card as she has over 400 events to attend all across North America and possibly Australia. She would love to stay at the Best Western hotels--a great hotel chain to stay at and found everywhere.

    By Gerd Friedrich on November 16, 2011 9:19 PM

    I would go spend a couple days at the Best Western Liberty Lake and take the wife shopping . I would give the other card to my partner at work as he only stays at Best Western too.

    By Daniel on November 17, 2011 12:23 AM

    I would use one towards my hotels in Rome, and another for my friend and her Boyfriends hotel in Rome as well! This way he can not worry about the cost of the room, and worry about how he's going to propose!!

    By Tammi W on November 17, 2011 12:26 AM

    I would use the gift card for my boyfriend and I to take a vacation. Maybe finally take that trip to Disneyland he has been promising me for 5 years now or head to the Oregon coast and relax.

    I would give the other card to a charity cause to either use in a raffle or to use to help a family fulfill a dream trip. I don't know anyone close to me that would use it, so this seems like the best option. :)

    By Elisse Jo Goldstein on November 17, 2011 12:49 AM

    I would use a $250 Best Western Travel Card for a getaway trip with hubby someplace WARM this winter!
    I would give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to a dear girlfriend who BADLY needs a getaway!!!

    By Karey Kusuhara on November 17, 2011 12:58 AM

    I would use the first travel card to go see "Newsies" in New York City next year.

    The second travel card I would give to our friend, who doesn't like flying, so she could take a first-time trip to CA from FL to see the Original Disneyland.

    By Mariefe Ramos on November 17, 2011 1:01 AM

    I would take my mother for a grand vacation of pampered relaxation to Chicago for her 60th birthday because she always puts everyone else's needs ahead of her own.

    I would give the other card as a gift for my parents so they can finally celebrate my father's retirement in style.

    By daniel billings on November 17, 2011 1:05 AM

    i miss up somethings in my love life an i would use them to clean up everything i did wrong. i would use them to treat my love a wonderful night. i give the other one to some one that has not anything an needs a night to rest up for one night

    By Karey Kusuhara on November 17, 2011 1:20 AM

    The first travel card I would use to see "Newsies" in New York City next year with my SO (significant other)/partner.

    The second travel card I would give to our friend to make her first trip from FL to CA so she can visit the ORIGINAL Disneyland.

    By Gabriella Iacobone on November 17, 2011 1:52 AM

    I would use my Gift Card on a much needed vacation for my husband and I. I would give the second card to my parents to use for their honeymoon, which is coming up in February.

    By Donna Wheeler on November 17, 2011 5:45 AM

    Our daughter goes to college 4 1/2 hours away from home. We try to see her once a month for parent time. One card would be used to visit her.

    Ever since high school our daughter has talked about seeing New York. Two summers ago she worked at a children's camp and made a day visit to New York city. The second card would be given to her for a longer trip to sightsee in New York City.

    By Douglas Michon on November 17, 2011 8:27 AM

    My wife has never been to NYC. This would certainly help with a weekend getaway!

    By Peter Georges on November 17, 2011 8:44 AM

    I would use one card for a weekend getaway to New Orleans and give the other card to my aunt and uncle for their next trip down to Florida.

    By Karey Kusuhara on November 17, 2011 9:08 AM

    The first travel card I would use to go to NYC to see "Newsies" next year with my SO (significant other)/partner.

    By Howard Brooks on November 17, 2011 9:30 AM

    I would use one BW card for travel to the northeast, including Washington, DC next spring.

    I would give the second card to my wife, so we could enjoy BW hospitality even longer on the trip.

    By Earl Patterson on November 17, 2011 9:31 AM

    I would use one of the travel cards for a weekend getaway for my wife and myself and give the other gift card to my son so that he may do the same with his bride.

    i am stuck in az. best western hotels are the best bang for your buck! i am sleeping on a couch right now. i would use it to get a couple of days of relaxation and great nights sleep!

    By hellodollie on November 17, 2011 11:31 AM

    A decade birthday is always a cause for a special celebration in my family and with the upcoming "60th" for my baby sister, a BW gift card would be an ideal reminder of all the memories we have shared during our travels.

    By Judy on November 17, 2011 1:20 PM

    I would visit locations that are too "fashionably" expensive for me to see otherwise. My best friend always goes out of her way to take me places. She would love a chance to get away.

    By Judy B on November 17, 2011 1:28 PM

    If I won your gift card, I would visit some place that would normally be too expensive for me, and stay in an upscale area in season, just once.
    If I won your gift care, I would give it to my best friend who takes me to the oncologist and other appointments without ever acting like I'm a bother.

    By Dora Simpson on November 17, 2011 2:00 PM

    I would use the gift card to visit my family in Miami . We went a few weeks ago but my daughters car broke down and left us stranded,then when I got it fixed and we headed out (5 hours away) we had many serious issues with the Best Western that we stayed at in (Clewiston,Fl.) which was on the way and the manager promised to reimburse us for half the stay but I have yet to see anything. Needless to say I was so exhausted from not sleeping and upset about the accomodations that we only visited for a few hours and headed home instead of staying the night again. This is how I found out that each Best Western is individually owned.I was glad to hear that and it keeps me coming back to Best Western. Just not that one!! I would give the second card to my sister so she could go visit with us next time cause she can't afford it and she would like to go.

    By Derick on November 17, 2011 2:15 PM

    Splurge.
    Whichever Best Western Hotel I choose, we will take the one with the best view.
    The second card will go for the kids at Big Brother Big Sister of Sudbury.

    By Steve Sharp on November 17, 2011 2:34 PM

    I would be able to take my family on a real vacation for the if I could give one to anyoneit would be my parents

    By Rob C. on November 17, 2011 2:36 PM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?" I would take my wife to Disneyland. Because that is one of her favorite places!

    "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?" I would give the gift card to my wife because she is the most important person in the world! And I hope she will take me with her to Disneyland!

    By Suzanne on November 17, 2011 2:49 PM

    As Seniors, my husband and I have a "bucket list" of places we'd like to see sooner rather than later. The top spot easily belongs to a visit to the Marine Corps museum in Quantico, Virginia where he would love seeing those things he learned about and came to cherish while an active member of the Corps. Spending the travel card on a visit there would be a dream come true.

    By Suzanne on November 17, 2011 2:57 PM

    To finish my entry, I would gift the other $250 Travel Card to a close family who would love coming for a visit but who, like us, are Seniors and watching their pennies. The Gift Card would give them the freedom to travel.

    By Tom Batton on November 17, 2011 3:24 PM

    My son is in college, studying Electrical Engineering and planning a semester abroad next year in Budapest, Hungary. We aren't rich, but we know it would be a huge learning experience for him. If I won the travel card, I would give it to him to help him get to Hungary. Likewise, the gift certificate. I have checked and found Best Westerns in Budapest, so we'd love to go visit him while he's there. We're not sure at the moment how we'd do that, but the cards would certainly help.

    By DONNA W on November 17, 2011 4:48 PM

    If I won a gift certificate I would travel some where with my husband. We tried to
    take a vacation early this year and I had a bloodclot go to my lung and was rushed to the hospital in another state, unconsious and then had a heart attack while in emergency. I was in a coma for 5 days. I'm still working on regaining my health.
    I'd like to have a chance at a better trip together, but we're still paying doctors.


    I'd talk to my church to find someone that needs something good to help them through troubling times.

    By Tamik Wilks on November 17, 2011 4:55 PM

    I Would Use it to travel and stay at Ft. Bragg, NC and visit my daughter stationed in the US Army and I would give her the other Gift Card so she can travel to see some of her friends she has not seen back in NJ.

    By Donna W on November 17, 2011 5:13 PM

    Due to our last vacation ended with me in a hospital in a come for 5 days .
    I am still having to see doctors and pay bills.
    I'd like to try to have a nice trip for a few days with my husband who sat by my bed all the while.


    I would ask my church to help me find a person or couple that need something to give them a chance to see some goodness from life.

    By Jon Stark on November 17, 2011 7:10 PM

    I would us the $250 to stay at Best Western on the trip to and from where Im building a place in the woods in north Carolina, I cant drive all night like I used to and love seeing that Best Western sign when Im too tired to go another mile!

    By Jon Stark on November 17, 2011 7:15 PM

    part 2: I would give the $250 to my sister to be able to come visit me and use the card to stay overnight on the big island in Puerto Rico before flying to Florida to visit.

    By Lisa on November 17, 2011 7:47 PM

    what I would do is keep this for my husband and I to enjoy we have not had a vacation for 20years Between taking care of my bed ridden parents and putting two kids through catholic high school and then college we have not taken a vacation for a while

    By Stephen on November 17, 2011 8:08 PM

    For my card, it would be a special getaway for myself and my beautiful wife. With the holidays ahead, this would be a perfect time for a mini-vacation.

    For the gift card, that would go to my sister and brother-in-law. There are some health issues and the getaway would be such a blessing for the two of them.

    By Jan Roberts on November 17, 2011 9:51 PM

    One for me, one for my hard-working daughter!

    By Kira Toohey on November 17, 2011 10:09 PM

    "What would you do with a $250 Best Western Travel Card?"

    I would save mine until next summer, in which we are going to try and take a road trip to spread my grandmother's ashes over the same river we spread my grandfather's ashes in 1989. Then the two can finally be together and we can make the trip easier.

    "Who would you give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to as a gift?"

    I'd give it to my mother in law, who wishes to go to Hawaii and get married in March!

    By Deanne Cooper on November 18, 2011 12:18 AM

    I would use one of them in traveling to go and see my newfound sisters. We have the same biological father, but since I've not seen nor heard from him since I was a baby, I had no idea that I had any siblings. We only discovered each other back in March, 2011, when they found me via a website in which I was looking for my birth father. Since then, I've only been able to meet one of them. Still have one more to go, and I'd like to make that happen soon.

    I'd give the other one to my friends, Emily and Trey. They are on a very tight budget, and going back to school to further their education, so I know a little R&R would be much appreciated!

    By Autumn Wright on November 18, 2011 1:07 AM

    I would use my card for a trip to Vegas and give the other card to my niece she's dying from lung cancer and would like to go to Vegas one last time she really enjoys gambling.

    By TREE on November 18, 2011 4:35 AM

    Audience, hold your breath, here I come to make you laugh. It seems that Iowa, Chicago, and certain areas of West Virginia need to lighten their load and giggle a bit.

    I would use the card to stay overnight as I make my way in the form of amateur comedienne. One open-mic at a time is the way.

    By tree on November 18, 2011 4:37 AM

    Iowa, Chicago, and certain parts of West Virginia need to laugh out loud, away from their computers and cell phones.

    I would put myself up in the Best Western after a night of performing stand-up comedy!

    By Alan Brenker on November 18, 2011 5:02 AM

    I would use the first card to take my wife on a nice well deserved weekend adventure. She puts up with a lot with my job, travel and hours. This would be a great reward for her and refreshing time for us.
    The second card would be given to my son and daughter in law for a nice weekend getaway. Of course this would allow my wife and I to keep our grandaughter for this weekend. Life can be hectic for a working couple trying to raise a family in todays economy.
    What a great honor it would be to win and fulfill these dreams.

    By Joel Husman on November 18, 2011 5:37 AM

    I am planning a christmas trip with my wife and 2 childeren. We have been so busy this year that we have not been able to take a vacation. My childeren are 7 and 9. We would like to go to the Dells in Wisconsin.

    I would most likely give the gift card to my wifes Aunt. She loves to travel and she has been very helpful to us during the recession in 2009. She is such a saint. She volunteers by serving homeless people on a daily basis in Sioux Falls, SD.

    By Sherry on November 18, 2011 8:09 AM

    I would use this gift card to take my 2 small children to Disneyland. I am a single parent and i have been saving money and collecting air miles and best western points in order to try to afford to take them. I have been saving for 2 years now.

    I would give the gift card to my parents because they help me so much and i would like to show them appreciation. Maybe they can take a holiday then and enjoy themselves.

    By lyn lynch on November 18, 2011 8:38 AM

    I would use this $250 Best Western Travel Reward card to stay a week in a Best Western in the heart of a small scenic American city where I can document the trip in acrylic on canvas. I would gift the second $250 Best Western Travel Reward card to my friend and painting buddy who has raised her granddaughter almost since the day of her birth, and is now out of work, as I am. Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

    By sue schwarting on November 18, 2011 12:46 PM

    I would use the firs card for a trip to a spot I've never been. The second I would give to my nephew & his wife. I don't think they have been away on a vacation alone since they married - they are always busy working and taking care of everyone else. Within a matter of months they lost a mother and 2 grandmothers.
    They deserve some alone time.

    By Susan on November 18, 2011 1:15 PM

    I would use my $250 gift card to visit my son,daughter-in-law, and my 2 precious grandsons in Arizona. I would give the other $250 to my step daughter so she could join me and bring her son (another precious grandson) with.

    By Cheryl Dyer on November 18, 2011 1:29 PM

    My husband and I have recently become Best Western Reward Members. Since retiring, we have been taking roadtrips each year to our Country's National Parks. We have seen spectacular scenery and taken thousands of pictures (my husband rolls his eyes..HaHa). I would love to be able to give those two Best Western Travel Cards to two deserving families of returning Marines from Afghanistan, out of Camp Pendleton. My husband is a retired Marine of twenty years and we both have such great admiration for our men who serve their country to keep us safe. It would be wonderful to let them bask in the beauty of the Country they love.

    Thank you.

    By Chris B on November 18, 2011 3:19 PM

    I would use my $250 Best Western Travel Card to take my family to Disneyland!

    I would give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to my in-laws as a gift so they could go with us and get there own rooms. ;)

    By Iliana Blair on November 18, 2011 3:19 PM

    We are traveling to FL this winter and I would use it to stay at one of your pet friendly hotel and give the other to my son who will also be traveling with pets.

    By laura on November 18, 2011 3:20 PM

    I would use it to go to niagara falls

    and

    I would give it to my mother-in-law so she could come and visit me

    By Andrea on November 18, 2011 3:21 PM

    I would use one card so I could go see my daughter after she moves. She's graduating college in December and is off to the big city. It is seven hours away and a Best Western would be perfect as she will have a teeny tiny apartment.

    The other card would go to my parents. They are going on a big trip but always have to stay in a hotel by the airport on their way out and back as it is a ways from their house.

    By Jen Maddox on November 18, 2011 3:22 PM

    If I won the $250 BW travel card, I would book a room at the Oregon Coast to enjoy the sounds of the ocean and fresh seafood.

    I would give a card to my Mother in Law who watches our daughter while I am at work and I know she would love a vacation/break.

    By laurie on November 18, 2011 3:23 PM

    I haven't taken a trip for fun in ages! I'd visit visit my friend in Cali & give the other to my brother who usually sticks to the cheapo motels!

    By Brent on November 18, 2011 3:26 PM

    I would use it when I go to spend time with my daughter she is in Iowa and I'm in Alberta.

    By CH on November 18, 2011 3:33 PM

    Wow, this would be perfect! I would love to take a "genealogy trails" kind of trip through Mississippi to go to visit homes of my ancestors there, to see and photograph the houses still standing and the headstones of their graves. I'd go to the courthouses in their hometowns to try to discover new records. I'd visit the distant cousins still living in that area. It would be a long, expensive drive and trip, but I could stay in Best Westerns all along the way! I'd give the second card to my sister, and maybe she'd join me.

    By Rebecca Rendon on November 18, 2011 3:41 PM

    I would use my card to get out of town with my husband for a romantic getaway. With the other card I would give it to my grandma so she can take a trip to visit her family that she hasn't seen in a few years.

    By R. Casey on November 18, 2011 3:42 PM

    The 1st card I would use to visit my brother in CA. The 2nd card I would give to my nephew so he could visit his girlfriend.

    By April Freeman on November 18, 2011 3:45 PM

    I would use the card for my Husband & I, we've been married for 17 yrs never had a honeymoon or taken a vacation ever, this could help us make that dream come true.

    The second card I would give to my parents who have been married for 28 yrs and never had a vacation I think this could not only make one of our dreams come true but there's also
    Thank you for this chance

    By Emily Schreiber-Skipper on November 18, 2011 3:58 PM

    I would use a card for my husband and I to getaway somewhere special! With the other card I would probably offer it to my mom, as she is always so generous to me and my family!

    By Dana Strapazzon on November 18, 2011 4:06 PM

    I have just retired, and would love to use my gift card to begin my dream of a journey across North America with Best Western as my home away from home. We always travel using Best Western and have never encountered a questional stay. We love the bonus of a nice breakfast being included each morning, not to mention the beautiful hotel locations in the many states and provinces that we have enjoyed so far.
    The second gift card would be given to my adult children and grandkids to join us in Orlando this year for a magical trip to Disney world. We hope to add the travel bug to their situations so that our Best Western experiences can carry on to a new generation.

    I would use my card to travel to New York and visit with my children for the holidays.

    The other card is a tough question. Five children to chose from. Sounds like it's time to create a riddle contest..

    By Pam Shumate on November 18, 2011 4:09 PM

    I would use the card to visit my Dad in Virginia during the Holidays...which is something I haven't got to do in 3 years.My Mom is also laid to rest there ad visiting her grave for Christmas would be the best gift I could receive.I've been able to visit her grave twice in 7 years.The other card I would give to my kids so they could also go and be able to have a place to stay so we could all be together.Gas is so expensive it's hard to be able to travel,buy gas and afford a place to stay.Winning this would make for the best Holiday my family could wish for.

    By Joyce Poyton on November 18, 2011 4:43 PM

    I would use the Best Western cards to have a weekend getaway to Niagara Falls.

    I would give the Best Western cards to my mom. She is in remission from lymphoma cancer and she could relax in a jacuzzi and site see.

    By laura on November 18, 2011 4:50 PM

    I would use it to go to niagara falls

    and

    I would give it to my mother-in-law so she could come and visit me

    I would use the card for myself to take a trip to Seattle, WA

    I would gift the other card to my Mom, so she could go visit a sick family member in Spokane, WA

    By Dede Clinch on November 18, 2011 6:07 PM

    If I won the $250 gift card I would use it on my motorcycle trip to Yellowstone next year. The other gift card I would give to my husband and we would use it in San Francisco. He's never been to California.

    By Ajay Patel on November 18, 2011 6:50 PM

    I would use the $250 to take my family on a trip to Disneyland in Orlando, Florida then I would give the other certificate to my wife to go anywhere she wants because she is a caring person who works to hard worrying about others and I love her for that.

    By Ajay Patel on November 18, 2011 6:57 PM

    I would use the $250 to take my family on a trip to Disneyland in Orlando, Florida then I would give the other certificate to my wife to go anywhere she wants because she is a caring person who works too hard worrying about others and I love her for that.

    By Donna B on November 18, 2011 7:23 PM

    My Husband and I could go to Hawaii and stay on Maui and maybe Oahu. It looks so beautiful on travel channels. If not we would go visit his mom, there is a BW pretty close to her town.

    By Shelly P on November 18, 2011 7:41 PM

    If I won the prize, one would be given to my big brother. He is always looking out for me and neglects himself from time to time. Traveling the world is one thing he loves to do and isn't able to at the time. Just a weekend away to relax is something he would enjoy. He is constantly working long hours and overtime to help the family. This would be a nice gift for him. I hope we're picked for the prize!

    By Malinda Jones on November 18, 2011 8:30 PM

    I would use it to go the store and buy alot of toys & clothes for kids and donate them to a christmas collection station for the needy.

    If I had a 250.00 gift card, I would give it to my daughter to take my 3 granddaughters to disney land.

    By kk on November 18, 2011 8:39 PM

    I would save one GC for my upcoming trip to the West Coast. The second, I would give to my aunt for Christmas.

    By sharon young on November 18, 2011 9:28 PM

    I would use to go to the Best Western in Lake Chelan, Washington. It is a beautiful place just a few hours from my home. Of course-I would give the second card to my mom because there is now way she is sleeping in the same room with me.

    By Rosemary Breschuk-Chiu on November 18, 2011 9:59 PM

    I would use one gift card so I could travel 500 kms to see my sister who I haven't seen in 14 years. I would give the other card to my partner who has not had a vacation in over a decade, and hope he would use it very self-indulgently, for a golf getaway, for example.

    By Andrea Kasper on November 18, 2011 10:24 PM

    My husband and I have two young children, he works full time and I am a full time student. We haven't had a night to ourselves in several years. So I would use these cards to take us out and away for a night.

    By steven on November 19, 2011 12:03 AM

    I would use it to travel to Houston, TX to visit my family that I haven't seen in sooo long. I really miss them. College takes up all of my time and that would be the perfect trip and it would be all thanks to BEST WESTERN!

    I would be bringing along my beautiful girlfriend because her family also lives in houston!

    By Becky Richied on November 19, 2011 12:05 AM

    I would use the first card to take my daughters down to the beach for some time. I have never been able to take them and do something nice like that and would love to be able to give them the memories to keep always.

    The second card I would give to my best friend and her two daughters. She is virtually family to me and a get together with everyone is something I/We all need. I wish everyone goodluck and all be blessed.

    Becky

    By sabrina on November 19, 2011 12:19 AM

    I'd use the $ to visit my bf in TN. and I'd give the other one to him so that he could come visit me!

    By justin on November 19, 2011 12:20 AM

    I would use this the next time me and my great female friend head to Southern California. I just hit two hogs with one angry bird.

    By Karen Knight on November 19, 2011 1:43 AM

    I would use the card for a trip next year that I want to make with the whole family to Hershey Park. With the amount of people going it would probably take both cards. We haven't gotten to spend a lot of time together in a while since we don't live close by and this would be great. This would be a gift to give for Christmas...so something to look forward to for all of us.

    By Andrea D on November 19, 2011 1:56 AM

    I would surprise my husband and take a trip to the mardi gras hotel and casino!

    Thanks for having the giveaway! ;)

    By Colleen Butler on November 19, 2011 2:48 AM

    I would take a vacation to Los Angeles and stay at BW West Hollywood. The one located right across from the Saddle Ranch. I would eat the most delicious brunch there and go for a ride on the bull! Then I would take a stroll to Koreatown for some fun.
    I would give the other BW card to my parents. It's their 30th Anniversary and I am in South Korea and unable to attend their party. I love them and want them to enjoy it!

    By Catherine Cummins on November 19, 2011 4:15 AM

    I would take my kids and I to NYC. I've always wanted to take them there, put never really had the money to just do it for fun.

    I would give a card to the parents of my son's best friend. They have done so much for him over the years, that I just can't thank them enough.

    By marge young on November 19, 2011 9:49 AM

    I would be excited to win and would use cards to visit my children in college more frequently.

    By Vicki on November 19, 2011 9:58 AM

    My son is graduating from college in January and will be looking for a job. We (my son, husband and I) would take a trip to the places he might consider living. I would stay at the Best Western Hotels in that area. We like Best Western Hotels and would need to check them out in the town he chooses to live because I am sure we would be visiting him there in the future and this would give us the perfect opportunity.

    The second gift card I would give to my Brother and Sister-in-law who are the main caregivers for my Mother who is bedridden. I would give them the certificate so they could have a nice much needed vacation. It would be a real treat for them.

    By MICHELLE WASHBURN on November 19, 2011 9:58 AM

    I would take my family on a much needed vacation and give one two my parents go they can go to Green Bay and see the Packers win!

    By PatBB! on November 19, 2011 3:46 PM

    I would use one to visit karaoke bars in different cities & give the other to a karaoke friend who is too poor to afford hotel stays!

    By Mary Robbins on November 19, 2011 4:10 PM

    My Daughter moved to Maryland from California to find work. She has been there for over three years.In that time we have not seen each other. We would love to spend the $250 gift card on a room so we ease the cost and could afford to see her. Thank you all, Happy Holidays from Us to You.....

    I would give the 2nd Gift card to a service couple so they could afford to have a honeymoon.

    By Andre Lavigne on November 19, 2011 5:55 PM

    Married this year for 50 years with the same girl, I Would certainly go for on a second honney moon.
    and with the gift card I would take one of my chidren with us.

    By Marlene Kuse on November 19, 2011 6:55 PM

    My husband has been away working so when we get together at Christmas We would use one . The other I would give to my daughter as she often needs to take her daughter to childrens hospital and does not always have a place to stay.

    By LUCINDA HABEL on November 20, 2011 12:16 AM

    I would use my card to take the kids via Amtrak to see thier 78 yr old Grandmother 1200 miles away in Texas. I have 3 kids under 7 and it just so difficult to go anywhere with them.

    The other card I would give to my Dad, so he could go see his sister he hasn't seen in a decade. They are both getting older (70s) and I worry he wont get to see her.

    By weeza on November 20, 2011 12:34 AM

    I'd use one gift card on the long drive home from California to Seattle for the holidays, it would give us a chance to rest up in Oregon and make the rest of the trek rested and refreshed.
    We'd give the second to my husbands son, he's in the military and works so very hard, he deserves a night away with his buddies!

    By Heather W. on November 20, 2011 1:58 AM

    Ah, with this, I'd stay in a lovely hotel with my boyfriend this holiday season. Because I fear the cold winter (i'm quite warm blooded), we'd stay in, order room service, rent a movie and enjoy just relaxing in a completely different part of the world.

    By Karen on November 20, 2011 2:00 AM

    I would use it to take my boys to the beach.

    By CARMEN on November 20, 2011 2:14 AM

    I would go visit family and I would give the gift to family so they could come see me!

    By Andrew Farrimond on November 20, 2011 6:06 AM

    I would book a BW break at the Hotel Syrene in Capri, we stayed there this summer and would love to go back.

    I would give the other card to my parents so that they can come visit me in the US, they live in England.

    By Ladybug on November 20, 2011 6:59 AM

    I would like to travel to Marysville, Tennessee where my grandmother was born and my great grandmother is buried in the Smoking Mountains!!!

    And for the gift one I would like to give it to my son and his wife who went both working anywhere from 6 to 7 days a week to only 30 hours a week or less. Trying to work 2 or 3 jobs just to make it. Then my granddaughers live in Texas (5 hours away) This card would help them when they go visit them.

    By Sandra S on November 20, 2011 9:38 AM

    I would use the card for a vacation with hubby and the other card I would give to my husband, as this would allow us to stay a few more days in the comfort of Best Western! :)

    By Liz on November 20, 2011 12:22 PM

    A travel card would be great because I pay my way to visit college campuses to help students in the college admissions process. I would give the 2nd card to my son who will soon need to travel to look for a job.

    By Alice Sawyer on November 20, 2011 4:06 PM

    My husband & I would use the card for travel down to Palm Desert this winter, and if we had one to give, we would give it to our daughter so she could come down with her family to visit us while we are down there.

    By Terry Stanley on November 20, 2011 5:02 PM

    My wife and I drive cars to Florida in the fall for snow birds from Ontario. We always stay at Best Westerns and the travel card would off set our costs for this service we provide. We then return to Florida in the spring and drive their cars home. We have two nights on the road each trip.

    I would give the second gift card to our daughter who is having a really rough time trying to adopt a sweet 16 month old girl whom they are presently fostering. My daughter and her husband really need a break away and the gift card would allow that to happen. It would also permit me to baby sit while they are gone.

    Thank you.

    By Traci G on November 20, 2011 7:00 PM

    My boyfriend and I live over 200 miles apart. I would use the travel giftcard to go see him. And I'm sure the opposite he would use his card to see me. It would be two trips we wouldn't have to worry about money on that would be slightly less stressful, while we are both working towards being together everyday.

    By Traci G on November 20, 2011 7:01 PM

    By Joe M on November 20, 2011 9:46 PM

    $250 Best Western gift certificates would give me an opportunity to treat our friends to a visit to the Oregon coast. My wife and I had a hurried trip along the coast with our young children 17 years ago after Disneyland. They were not in the mood for scenic touring so we need a return trip to really enjoy it.

    By AJ Stacy on November 21, 2011 12:27 AM

    I would donate one of the $250 gift cards to the 'Wounded Warrior Project". While a soldier is in hospital care recovering, it is expensive for the family to afford flights and hotel stays. I think this would be a small way I could give back to the heroes that protect us.

    I'd use the other gift card to visit family in Colorado Springs, Co.

    By alex t. on November 21, 2011 12:31 AM

    I would use this card to take my family to see the GRAND CANYON! We don't get to travel much because we are poor and always busy with work and trying to pay the bills. We would be gracious to receive aid for travel expenses as it would allow us to take that family excursion that we have been wanting to! If there are any leftover expenses, I'd probably donate it to someone who needs a place to stay for the night. Many families I know live out of motels and hotels and it'd be great to give someone a roof over their heads, even if its for one night.

    By steph on November 21, 2011 12:33 AM

    I would save the gift card for our Spring road trip!! I would give the other one to my sister so she could take a vacation with my nieces.

    By Peter S on November 21, 2011 12:33 AM

    I'd get my old roommates for a boys getaway beer brew trip in San Diego, while the wife can get her girls weekend trip up North for wine tasting. Yup, at least we are in the same state and enjoy what California has to offer!

    By Rachael Wilson on November 21, 2011 1:16 AM

    I would use my BW gift card for a family vacation at the beach. I would give the extra gift card to my mother in law, Betsy, so she could join us!

    By laura on November 21, 2011 1:31 AM

    I would go to niagara falls

    I would give the other to my mother in law, so that she could visit me

    By Jennifer M. on November 21, 2011 1:33 AM

    A $250 Best Western Travel Card would take care of around three nights of stays on the Oregon Coast and in Oregon's wine country. If I were to win, then I may indeed take that Oregon treck I've been holding back on!!! Here's crossing my fingers.

    As for the second card, if I were to give a $250 card to someone special then that special person would be my brother. He travels back and forth regularly to see his son on a limited budget, and I think it would be so great if the two of them could have a great father-son excursion alone together -- while being treated to a little bit of travel luxury at one of your hotels.

    By laura on November 21, 2011 1:39 AM

    i would go to niagara falls

    and

    I would give the other card to my mother in law, so that she could visit me

    By laura on November 21, 2011 2:16 AM

    i would go to niagara falls

    i would give the other card to my mother in law so that she could visit

    By Carolyn C on November 21, 2011 3:29 AM

    I would use the gift card to take a road trip from Southern California up along the coast to Portland, Oregon. I'd like to visit some of the many great microbreweries in the Portland area.

    I'd give the other card to my mother so she could enjoy a nice weekend getaway with a friend somewhere in California or Nevada.

    By AngelFabs on November 21, 2011 4:04 AM

    I recently found my brother. We've been separated for over 30 years. So I would use mine for a visit and give the other to him to come and visit me. What a sweet holiday it would be.....

    By Linda Massey on November 21, 2011 4:22 AM

    I would give a card to each of my daughters so they could go see their Dad in WI. They haven't seen him in over 2 years, and it's so sad!

    By Debbie Smith on November 21, 2011 6:20 AM

    I would use one to take a trip for my 50th birthday coming up in Feb.

    The second card I would give to my parents as a Christmas surprise.

    By Debbie Smith on November 21, 2011 6:23 AM

    The 1st card I would use to take a trip for my upcoming 50th Birthday.

    The 2nd would be a Christmas gift for my parents.

    By tim sweeting on November 21, 2011 6:41 AM

    I would use one to take my wife away for the weekend to celebrate her retirement.

    I would give the second to my son so he could go and visit his brother at university.

    By Coetta Miller on November 21, 2011 6:47 AM

    I would give the first card to my brother and his family in Mississippi so they could take a mini vacation that they have not been able to do in years!

    I would give the second card to a Senior's couple at my church to enjoy.

    By Elise J on November 21, 2011 6:48 AM

    I would use the card to take a trip to Canada with my boyfriend for our anniversary.

    I would give the other card to my parents because they both work hard and could use a getaway.

    By Stephy m on November 21, 2011 6:50 AM

    I would take my family to the mountains for Christmas and give the other one to my parents because they never get to go anywhere.

    By Joanne Harnett on November 21, 2011 6:50 AM

    I love weekends away so I would use the card to book my favorite Best Western in whatever city strikes my fancy that day.

    I got my love of weekends away so I would love to share the cards with her. We can travel together and get twice as much mileage out of the cards.

    Pick us please.

    By Rebecca Garcia on November 21, 2011 6:55 AM

    I just got my home back from some renters that left my home a disaster. It needs alot of work and thats all I have been doing is working on the home and living in it at the same time. I am a single parent so I would love to use the card to get away and stay in a nice Best Western hotel just to relax. Righ now I am sleeping on an air mattress in my home until the home is repainted and floors are redone. Since being a single parent, the process is very slow due to finances.
    I would give a card to my sister and my brother-in-law for them to get away. They sacraficed their time to take care of my 2 nieces that were taken away from their own parents. They do so much for them children.

    By Jean Adamson on November 21, 2011 6:56 AM


    I would use the gift card to go away for our 50th wedding anniversary somewhere nice.

    By CJ on November 21, 2011 6:56 AM

    I would use the 1st card towards hotel bills for the Coach of my son's team, as we always stay at Best Westerns.

    The 2nd would be given to our priest for a little get away after the busy Christmas season has passed.

    By Jean C on November 21, 2011 6:59 AM

    I would give it to my sister-in-law for a Christmas present as she is recently separated & needs a few days away.

    By Ben R on November 21, 2011 7:03 AM

    I would use my gift as an anniversary gift with my dear wife of 40+ years to be able to travel and stay in a nice BW hotel in North Carolina .

    I would use the 2nd card as a gift to my daughter who lives far away from our home so she could afford to take a little vacation. She works at a non-profit that helps poor people and she hardly gets paid enough to afford a shared apartment.

    By Ryan Witbeck on November 21, 2011 7:04 AM

    I run a business and travel a lot for work. I always look for a Best Western Hotel. I would use the gift card for business travel. As a gift, I would give the cards to my employees.

    By Sharon E. on November 21, 2011 7:15 AM

    I would use my gift card to go to Colorado on a BMW motorcycle trip. I would give the other card to my Aunt who also rides a BMW motorcycle with a side car so she could go with me.

    By Kathie on November 21, 2011 7:16 AM

    My Husband and I Drag Race and stay at Best Westerns all over north west U.S and Canada. I would use the first $250 card to stay at Best Western in Mission B.C. and Auburn Washington.

    The second gift card I would give to my daughter. She is planning a trip to Central America and this would allow her a few nights in hotels rather than Hostels.

    By Blen Rivera on November 21, 2011 7:19 AM

    We are always traveling on the Holidays to visit friends and family or just to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, and as usual,hotel we try to find the better hotel deals out there for the money. Best Western always is among our first choice! Clean rooms, good locations, and a friendly staff make it an easy choice.

    By robert jones on November 21, 2011 7:20 AM

    the winning of the cards would make the xmas trip north into snowcountry a lot less painful and the 2nd card would let our son travel south to see us in better weather

    By Cheryl Jackson on November 21, 2011 7:20 AM

    I would use a gift card to go with my husband and daughter to visit my parents who just moved about 5 hrs away. My daughter has been close to them since she was an infant and has never been this far away for more than a short time.
    I would give the gift card to my family so for the same purpose as above. We saw my parents nearly every day and we miss them very much and would love to be able to drive down and stay nearby so we could visit.(I can't give it to my parents to come back and visit us - they can't because of my father's health)

    By Loretta Bourke on November 21, 2011 7:21 AM

    I would use the gift card to attend my mom's 80th Birthday celebration.
    We are planning this celebration in Florida to escape the cold Ontario winter

    I would give the other card to family that are able to attend this celebration

    By Cheryl on November 21, 2011 7:22 AM

    We'd use one to visit our daughter who's away at school in Redding. The Best Western in Red Bluff is really nice and we've stayed there before. We'd give the other one to our son and daughter-in-law when they visit next summer from South Africa where they serve as missionaries - we'd get to babysit the 4 grandkids while they get a little time away!

    By Blen Rivera on November 21, 2011 7:24 AM

    We usualy stay at Best Western when we travel because of what we get for our money: economical rates, good locations, good food, clean rooms and a friendly staff!

    By margo on November 21, 2011 7:25 AM

    I would use this on my way to Florida as we have always done in the past. Comfortable and clean .

    By Patriotic American on November 21, 2011 7:26 AM

    I would give both gift cards to two of our local military families who give and give up so much for each and every one of us Americans.

    By Tom Shelley on November 21, 2011 7:26 AM

    Enjoy the quality best western has offered us in the past.

    Give the second card to my wife (mky best friend) so us lucky enough to retired could stay our longer and enjoy the USA.

    By Shelly D on November 21, 2011 7:26 AM

    I would use the Travel card at every Petro stop along the high way and at the Best Western of my choice for an overnight stay!!

    By Lorna on November 21, 2011 7:29 AM

    I would give it to my husband, so he could visit his Mom!

    By Diane on November 21, 2011 7:31 AM

    I would use the card for our annual family road trip next summer!

    The other card would go to my sister so her & her family could join us!

    By Jose on November 21, 2011 7:33 AM

    I would use one to take my children to Florida and would give the other one to their mother so that she may visit them over the holidays.

    By Cathy Hucker on November 21, 2011 7:37 AM

    I would use the gift card for a much needed solitary dream vacation.

    I would give the gift card to my kids to come visit me...4 kids & families cannot fit in my tiny condo!!!

    By Wednesday on November 21, 2011 7:39 AM

    If i were lucky enough to win the two cards, I would give them both to my daughter who recently graduated college and has moved to Houston Texas for her first job. All her friends from high school in NJ and college in SC are now scattered all around and a reunion is costly to arrange. With these cards they could all travel to Texas and have the "best western" road trip EVER!

    By Tracey on November 21, 2011 7:42 AM

    I would use the first card to take my husband of 23 years on a honeymoon that we never had.
    The gift card would be given to my daughter who works two jobs and could really use some downtime.
    We love Best Western and are booked in this weekend in Michegan for Christmas shopping. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! Thanks BW!!

    By Kelly on November 21, 2011 7:46 AM

    If I won a $250 gift card, I would try and save it for this coming summer incase we take a trip to visit my family in SC. We haven't been down there since 2007 and this would really help on some of the cost. If we can't wait that long, I would use it to take my family on a mini local vacation to a hotel with a waterpark since our two kids love water!

    I would give the other gift card to our close friends since they don't get to treat themselves often and maybe we could all go and have a good time together with both our families and enjoy some time away from the worries of work and home and relax. It would be an awesome Christmas to them!

    By james on November 21, 2011 7:46 AM

    I would use one to go and visit my grandkids who live out of state. It would be so nice to see them again. We don't get to see them often enough.
    i would give the other one to my kids so they could come and visit us. Family is so important!

    By Craig Depre on November 21, 2011 7:47 AM

    I would so love the opportunity to see my ailing aunt in Salt Lake City, UT. If I would be so lucky to win, it would be a dream to be able to surprise her and give her a hug in person!

    By RKing on November 21, 2011 7:47 AM

    My love and I live 3 hours apart. I would use the travel card to plan a long romantic weekend for us to get together. Maybe at the first Best Western we stayed at as we have been wanting to go back there.

    Who whould I give it to as a gift? I would give it to my Love so he could plan a long romantic weekend for us.

    By Keith Ruddy on November 21, 2011 7:48 AM

    I always prebook my trips and use Best Western since I know what to expect and have always been satisfied

    By MOMRAV on November 21, 2011 7:48 AM

    I would give each of my daughters one of the gift cards so they could take a break from their university studies and go away together for a few days...

    By John Halter on November 21, 2011 7:49 AM

    I would give both to our children and their families. My wife and I are fortunate to travel often, so sharing these would give us the greatest enjoyment.

    By Dave Emmerich on November 21, 2011 7:49 AM

    I would use the prize to go see a special 86 year old friend in S.C. whose health is failing. He has always been my biggest influence in how to treat people with integrity.

    I would give the gift card to a military veteran, hopefully on leave, to spend special times with his loved ones.

    By Derek on November 21, 2011 7:49 AM

    Before I read the second question, I already think of giving both of the cards to my sister for her long over due vacation with her babies.

    By P Lottermoser on November 21, 2011 7:50 AM

    I would use the first card in conjunction with our trip to Hawaii, celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary.

    The second card, I would give to my brother and his wife who lost their house and are now living with our sister. It would provide them with a break they wouldn't otherwise be able to afford.

    By Laurie Froelich on November 21, 2011 7:51 AM

    I would use the gift cards to reconnect with family. We have had tragedy on top of financial difficulties in our family that have prevented us from spending as much time together as we would like. My husband's father is elderly at 89 and his mental capacities are failing. He is alone and on a very limited income yet far from his children. My father is 90 and in failing health as well. I feel it is important to spend as much time with them in the last year or so of their lives as we can. What with being unemployed and my husband supporting us on one income, it has been difficult to travel to visit as often as we would like. When we visit we stay in hotel/motel as both only have one bedroom homes. We always try hard to keep it reasonable so that we may take our parents out for a meal or do something nice, as they do live on very limited means. It would take a lot of pressure off to be able to stay in a Best Western as there is always one close by, wherever you are; that is why I am a Best Western Rewards member.

    By Julie Schmitmeyer on November 21, 2011 7:52 AM

    The first card I would use to visit my Dad in N.B. Canada.He is my birth father .I was adopted at 7 mo old and came to live in the U.S.He tried to find me for 54 years,with no luck. I did a birth search and found him.What a surprise! We are best firends and I love him..We have only known eachother for just 3 years,so our time together is precious.

    The second card I would give to my Dad to use to travel here in the U.S. He is 82 years old and would love to see our beautiful country.Best Western always provides a wonderful place to stay,it's just like being home without the work

    By Deana Nickerson on November 21, 2011 7:52 AM

    I would take my 76 year old mother on a Caribbean Cruise out of Fort Lauderdale to make up for the one we tried for her 75th, but she was too sick to really enjoy it! We would fly into Fort Lauderdale and stay at the Best Western for a few days before taking off on the cruise and then stay for a day or two afterwards.

    By Ankit Shah on November 21, 2011 7:53 AM

    If i were to win, i would take my parents for a nice vacation to the west coast. They have always been there for , i guess this would be a nice way to say Thank you Mom & Dad.

    By John on November 21, 2011 7:55 AM

    I would use the card to visit my Mom. The additional card would go to my daughter so she and her family could join us!

    By sharon hart on November 21, 2011 7:55 AM

    I'm 60 & my sister is 65. If I won I would like to take my sister & travel to some of the other states to see what they look like. We only know what Mo. & Ks. looks like. It would also be nice to see what some of the other Best Western's look like also.
    Thank You
    &
    God Bless

    By Gerald Swanson on November 21, 2011 7:56 AM

    I would use it while rving. A stay at a Best Western for every three days in the rig. I would give the other to my sister and her husband who also rv's.

    By sandra saylor on November 21, 2011 7:56 AM

    I would use them to cover my current business travel.
    I would give them to my children.

    By Charles L Bell on November 21, 2011 7:58 AM

    The gift card would be given to my ex son-in-law because he has custody of my granddaughter and is doing an excellant job of raising the 15 year old. It would be my thank-you to him.

    By michael d. yates on November 21, 2011 7:59 AM

    My wife and I have been on the road for nearly two years now, traveling around the country and writing about what we see. We always know that we'll have a comfortable stay at a Best Western. Motels have been our home for all this time. We don't have a home base, and all our possessions are in our van.

    I'd give the cards as a gift to my brother. He has had a hard time for many years now, and he would love to have the chance to travel and know he had a few nights of free accommodations!

    By Ingram Washington on November 21, 2011 8:00 AM

    I would use the gift cards to help pay for my daughter, granddaughter & great granddaughter for their stay at the Best Western when they visit us in Michigan

    By HENRY GARCIA on November 21, 2011 8:01 AM

    I would take my little Kids to Los Angeles so they can meet with their grandparents.

    I would give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to a person who really need it and can use it properly.

    By Debbie Manthe on November 21, 2011 8:02 AM

    I would use the first travel card to take my mom to see her 100-year old grandmother who is in the nursing home. We only get to see her a couple of times a year, and this would allow us to stay longer to visit than we normally do.

    I would give the second card to my friend who has bone cancer - she will be traveling back and forth to Arkansas to receive treatments, and with this travel card she would have no extra expenses while she is gone. :-)

    May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving.

    Debbie Manthe
    Baton Rouge, LA

    By M Berry on November 21, 2011 8:02 AM

    I would share them with my husband and we would take a break from winter at a location that has nice warm weather.

    By Janice K on November 21, 2011 8:02 AM

    I would give one to each daughter so they could come and visit us at Christmas time.

    By Steve Secrest on November 21, 2011 8:02 AM

    We always stay at the Best Western in Schereville, Indiana when we visit my wife's relatives. We also often stay at Best Westerns on various driving trips and are planning to drive from Michigan to San Antonio next March. We would use a $250 Travel Card on those trips.
    If we had a second card, I'd give it to my unemployed step-daughter because she can't afford to go anywhere and could use a nice break.

    By michael d yates on November 21, 2011 8:03 AM

    My wife and I have been on the road for nearly two years now, traveling around the country and writing about what we see. We always know that we'll have a comfortable stay at a Best Western.

    I'd give the cards as a gift to my brother. He has had a hard time for many years now, and he would love to have the chance to travel and know he had a few nights of free accommodations! He has never been west of the Mississippi.

    By Carol on November 21, 2011 8:04 AM

    My Big sister and I did not grow up together. Since my mom past in March We have been getting to know each other. We call each other everyday, the one thing we did with mom everyday. My big sister has become a part of my family in a big way. My big sister lives in Arizonia, and I live in Ohio. I would give one to my big Sis and keep one so we could drive out during our vacations. I could stay at a Best Western all the way there and back, and she could do the same in reverse.

    By Michael Edmonson on November 21, 2011 8:05 AM

    Since we just moved to Virginia this summer I would use the $250 Gift Card to take a trip north through the Amish country and into New England to explore our National Heritage as well take in the beautifal fall foliage.

    I would give a $250 Gift Card to my parents so they could travel cross country from Seattle to come visit their grandchildren and to enjoy all of the rich history that Virginia and Washington, DC has to offer.

    By M Berry on November 21, 2011 8:05 AM

    I would share the gift card with my husband and we would use it to go away to a nice warm destination to escape winter!

    By Anthony Siegmann on November 21, 2011 8:06 AM

    I would use the first $250 card to continue visiting the State Capitols as we travel.

    The second card would be given to a friend so we could meet while on one of the trips.

    I would use the cards to help with the costs for our Florida trip in February 2012. I would give the gift card to my granddaughter to use as a getaway gift during the spring break.

    By Dwayne Timmons on November 21, 2011 8:08 AM

    I would take my lovely SO on a Christmas trip & would give the second card to a local couple who I know couldn't afford a get away.
    Thanks
    Dwayne

    By Diane Bennett on November 21, 2011 8:09 AM

    I would use the card to visit my daughter in Va. We usually stay at the Best Western in North Carolina on trips to visit her. I would give the other card to my daughter so that she could visit us.

    By Tony Siegmann on November 21, 2011 8:09 AM

    I woul;d use the card while we stayed at BW hotels visiting the state capitols on our trips.

    The other card would be given to a friend in Oklahoma as we visited the OK state capitol.

    By Dee Blehi on November 21, 2011 8:10 AM

    I would like to travel from our home in Pennsylvania thru New England, to Maine. I love lighthouses and would like to visit some of them in the NE, as well as the beautiful scenery.

    Thanks

    By Luong Nguyen on November 21, 2011 8:11 AM

    I would use the card to stay at the Best Western Anaheim, which is smack dab next to the entrance at Disneyland Resort, California. In the past, we've either had to park or to take a shuttle there and being able to walk would be a huge advantage. I would share the gift card with my wife so she could take a room and eat at the Best Western in downtown Quebec City, which is close to her work, that way she could avoid the daily traffic for at least a few days.

    By Tony Siegmann on November 21, 2011 8:13 AM

    I would use the $250 card to stay at BW locations in Oklahoma neat the state capitol as we visit the state capitols.

    I have a friend near the Oklahoma capitol that would visit it with us and then stay at the same BW location.

    By Sharlane on November 21, 2011 8:13 AM

    I would use it towards our stay @ the Best Western prior to our upcoming cruise in 2012.
    The gift card I would give to our friends who we travel with.

    By Darrel Kisler on November 21, 2011 8:13 AM

    I would use the cards to go back to Palms Springs in February to visit our son who lives there. We just got back from there and we stayed at nothing but Best Western.

    By joanna purkeypile on November 21, 2011 8:14 AM

    I worked so many years without a vacation.. I am now retired and would love to travel throughout our great country.. I would use the Best Western card to take my twin sister along on new adventures. She is a breast cancer survivor and has not been able to travel until now. I would love to give her a card so she and her husband can get out and enjoy life.

    By david burkhart on November 21, 2011 8:14 AM

    I would use one for when to travel to Ottawa, where my daughter attends college.
    Usually we stay at the Best Western, just 10 minutes away from her school.
    The other one I would love to use for a trip to West Virginia. I've wanted to visit there for a long time now.

    By Larry Whisenhant on November 21, 2011 8:17 AM

    My wife and I recently retired and are planning to travel by auto all over the U.S. We would keep the gift card.

    By Patricia Fris on November 21, 2011 8:18 AM

    By Krazyleggs on November 21, 2011 8:19 AM

    I would use a gift card towards our annual visit to the Jasper Inn, in Jasper Alberta. We luv it there. The other card would definitely be gifted to my other family members who are also there to bring in every new year. Let's hope 2012 will bring in much needed optimism for our Global wellness!

    By joanna purkeypile on November 21, 2011 8:19 AM

    By quiltera on November 21, 2011 8:19 AM

    We would use the card to escape some of the cold winter months and head to warmer weather. We like to stay at Best Western whenever we get a chance to travel.

    We would give the additional card to my brother who hasn't had a holiday in years. It would be a real treat for him.

    By Cathy Ruggiero on November 21, 2011 8:22 AM

    I would use the first gift card to travel to North Carolina to visit my grandson and his family and help them prepare for a coming granddaughter.
    I would give the second card to my daughter from Memphis, TN so she could bring my other four grandkids down to Houston to visit their grandparents.

    By Margie Heerschop on November 21, 2011 8:24 AM

    If I won these travel cards, I would be so excited to have the opportunity to visit with my new little grandson in Toronto. I live in Calgary and as a result do not get to see him often, hold him or let him know how much I love him. I would do anything to see more of him. With the cards, I could stay in a Best Western hotel, close to where my daughter lives. As it is, her place is very small and so there isn't a lot of room.

    I would give the cards to my daughter as a gift if I were to win the cards. This way, she could come with her husband and the baby to visit all of her family here in Calgary. What a super wonderful git it would be!! We'd have a huge celebration!

    By Patti on November 21, 2011 8:25 AM

    I would give the gift card to my son and his family who are stationed at Ft. Sill, Ok for a vacation they much derserve!! Our card I would use to vacation with them.

    By Marian H.S. on November 21, 2011 8:31 AM

    I would use the first card to visit four of my grandchildren in Tennessee. I
    would give the second one to my sister who lives in Indiana so that she
    could afford to come back to Texas for a vacation and to visit the rest of
    the family.

    By Jackie H on November 21, 2011 8:35 AM

    By Robert Love on November 21, 2011 8:36 AM

    If i had the opportunity to win a $250 Best Western Travel Card, I would visit your property in Kelowna, BC. Kelowna is very beautiful any time of the year and your property is also very nice! If I was to give away a $250 Best Western Travel card, I would give it to my son and his spouse and they could use it on a honeymoon trip that they keep putting off.

    By VGilson on November 21, 2011 8:38 AM

    Our son is studying in England and won't be able to be home for Christmas. We would use the travel certificates to go and visit him and our daughter-in-law.

    We would give the gift certificates to my sister, to help her have a holiday; she has never had one anywhere.

    By Michelle E. on November 21, 2011 8:41 AM

    My husband and I would use one card to visit my retired parents in Northern California whom we see just a few times a year due to distance - we love staying at the Best Western Country Inn in their small town. We'd give the second card to my brother so he could do a roadtrip to Oregon for a visit with his best friend since childhood whom he's not seen for a few years.

    By Linda Christine Bleackley on November 21, 2011 8:42 AM

    A $250 gift card would allow my cousin and I to have a great reunion after 18 years in Quebec City. If I gave away a gift card, I'd give it to her as well because she's a great person who could use a getaway.

    By Dave N on November 21, 2011 8:44 AM

    I'm planning a trip to Miami Florida and I would use a Best Western $250 gift card to stay at the BW Atlatntic Beach Resort. It looks like an awesome place.
    I would give a $250 gift card to my parents so they could stay at some nice BW properties when they drive home from Florida to Canada in the Spring.

    By Jose Chua, Jr on November 21, 2011 8:45 AM

    I'll use the gift for my travel to Canada. I would like to give to my wife as a gift and she can decide which place to go.

    By Valerie Gossett on November 21, 2011 8:45 AM

    I have a brother who is 63 and two years ago it was found out that he had stage 4 lung cancer that had already spread to his liver and spine. He has never smoked, ate healthy all the time and worked out all the time. Because he was so healthy it escaped detection for ten years and at that time it had already spread. He lives with this everyday. He is taking time now to really enjoy life and travel as he does his treatments. It is a miracle in itself that it has been two years now and he looks great and feels great despite what is going on inside his body.

    So, I would give one card to my brother so he could continue traveling and the other I would use for my other brother and myself and my sister to join him at a particular destination for a family gathering. We try to spend as much time together as we can, even though I live in GA and they live in Miami.

    By Ingrid K on November 21, 2011 8:52 AM

    We are planning a family trip to New York City next year so that my children can experience "The Big Apple". A $250 gift card would make it possible for us to enjoy the city's ambience by staying in a Manhattan Best Western rather than commuting in from New Jersey. I would give a $250 gift card to my brother; he is a great guy, and has three young children who would love a Best Western getaway.

    By Robin Bottini on November 21, 2011 8:53 AM

    First, I would like to say Thank You. I would use the card to spend time with my 6 year old grandson. we have spent all our time together in a Best Western Hotel, our favorite is in Yosemite it has a indoor and outdoor pool great for winter and summer. The second I would give to a solider to thank him or her for protecting our country , so they could enjoy some time with their family .

    By Joe C on November 21, 2011 8:53 AM

    I would use a $250 gift card to go on a get away with my wife to celebrate our 25 year anniversary which we had this month and were not able to go away for it.
    I would give a $250 gift card to my son and his wife to go on a trip to celebrate their wedding and 1 year anniversary which they weren't able to go away for their honeymoon or anniversary because they both had to start the quarter at college.

    By Marlene Siewers on November 21, 2011 8:54 AM

    I would use that gift card to go to the heart of NYC!

    I would give a gift card to my sister, who needs a vacation as much as I do!

    We are planning a trip to Scotland and we would use the gift card for that trip.
    I would give a gift card to our friends that are going with us!
    Thanks,

    By Dwayne Timmons on November 21, 2011 8:55 AM

    After the third attempt at entering this contest I would take one card & go to a very nice BW to relax my frazzled nerves. Then I would give the other one to Nancy as I am sure she will also be frazzled by the time she get the contest to recognize her entry!
    Thanks
    A loyal BW customer

    By don on November 21, 2011 9:01 AM

    Being self employed it is hard to arrange time off to go away for a vacation. I would give both cards to my wife and we could do mini holidays during the winter months at the Best Western in Niagara Falls. It has a great indoor pool area.

    By Gerald Elliott on November 21, 2011 9:02 AM

    I would use the 2 gift cards to pay for the lodging for our race car team to participate
    in vintage road racing at Mont Tremblant, QC, VIR in Virginia and Road Atlanta in 2012. Without this kind of assistance the trip would not be possible.
    This is part of my Bucket List, as I am now 65 and have been diagnosed with Beckers Muscular Dystrophy which can severely limit my mobility and balance.
    I enjoy staying at Best Western Inns and want to be sure my team has the very best
    in comfort and service

    The first card would be used by the family to stay at aBest Western in Orlando next year and the second card would go to my daughter who suffers with extreme
    anxiety so the gift card might help with trying to get her fear less and love more.
    God Bless

    Best Western King's Manor was my bed at night while staying four days in Edinburgh, Scotland. It had, by far, the most comfortable accomodations while traveling in the UK. Margaret, the front desk assistant, was highly personable and hospitable, and made me feel I had arrived home. The restaurant offered the best breakfast array, and dinner choices were awesome. I would use a Best Western Travel Card to go to King's Manor and stay at "home" again!!

    My youngest sister would be the recipient of the second card, hands down! She works very hard and I would like to honor her dedication with an occasion to enjoy some time away, something she rarely does. She is so deserving and I think it's time for her to do something nice for herself. Traveling together, we have stayed in various Best Western hotels from Rutland, Vermont, to Paris, France. We'd have SO MUCH fun together!! :-)

    In 2012 my in-laws, in Newfoundland, will celebrate an awesome 50 years of marriage! My husband and his 3 sisters are in the process of planning an adventure for the whole family to celebrate. At this point the destination is not yet confirmed but it will defiantly involve travel for everyone. Since this will likely be a costly endeavor for our family of 4 (myself, husband and 2 kids), we would be thrilled to make use of this travel card and ensure Best Western is part of our travel plans.

    Without question, we would give the Best Western Travel Card to my in-laws for Christmas!

    I would take a trip to New York.

    I would give the gift card to my brother who has done a lot to help out me and my other siblings.
