  • @mitydad

    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!

  • Emma Walpole

    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

  • Brenda C

    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!

  • Sylvie Levesque

    I would use it in Toronto and visit CN tower !

  • Luc Brunet

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

  • Jerry Thomason

    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

  • Anna Attia

    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!!

  • Ellen B

    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.

  • Stephen

  • Ellen B

    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.

  • James B. McGarvey

    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.

  • Stephanie G

    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!

  • Sandra Fabian

    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)!!!

  • liz

    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 :)

  • Pat Evans

    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.

  • Jeff B

    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…

  • Aaron

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

  • Chrysta

    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

  • Pete H

    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!

  • Ellen L.

    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.

  • tessa

    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

  • Pete H.

    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!

  • Jodi Kozloff

  • Nancy N.

    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.

  • Laurel

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

  • Serena Debolt

    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.

  • Nick Rex

    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.

  • Sherry Lynn Harrington

    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 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!

  • Nicole B

    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!

  • Valda Robertson

    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.

  • Sheri

    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!

  • Susan

    * “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!!!

    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.

  • Stephen Wilson

    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.

    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.

  • Maureen Warwick

    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.

  • Emily Lai

    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.

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.

    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!

  • Eva Urban

    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. ♥

    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.

    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!

    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.

  • Val

    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.

    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!!!

    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

  • Sara

    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 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 :) )

  • Robyn Lee

    I would use the card to stay in Edmonton at the Best Western for the night or two when I go

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.

  • Barbie Davis

    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!

  • Rick M.

    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.

  • Allison Lancaster

    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.

    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.

  • Jason

    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

  • suzanne anctil

  • Diane Devine

    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!!

  • Jeff Y

    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.

  • Lois Patterson

    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!

  • Lorenzo

    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.

  • Laura Collins

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

    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!!

  • Lisa McCoy

    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!

  • Elizabeth Ellis

    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!

  • Lori Rogers

    I would use a $250 Best Western Travel Card to take my 4 year old grandson on his first trip to the Smokey Mountains. We would take him on the Blue Ridge Parkway with stops at Best Westerns along the way.

    I would give a $250 Best Western Travel Card to my daughter and son-in-law so they could go on the honeymoon they’ve never had.

  • Betsy

    I’ve been wanting to go up to Kansas City (a four-hour trip) to do my holiday shopping and eat at great restaurants we don’t have here, but that’s really a fantasy because it’s not in the budget…so I’d love to make that dream come true with the help of a gift card! I’d give the other card to my daughter who is getting married next year and we can use all the help we can get planning and paying for her wedding and honeymoon!

  • Jeanette Egan

    I would use the gift card to stay at various Best Westerns, while traveling around the USA, visiting family, and attending Square Dance events. I would give the gift card to a friend, so they can attend various Square Dance events.

  • marty

    the second one would get them to come visit me I miss them and will really miss christmas together.

  • Wanda Sharpe

    I am retired and love to travel..I have driven to Alaska and would love to drive to Nova Scotia. A Best Western travel card would enable me to stay and good motels all along the way. I would give the gift card to my travelling companion, Brenda Mendenhall, who make all my trips with me…it would be really great to win this.

  • GREG BOSCH

    I would use the $250 to pay for a trip we are planning to the midwest for a week , this would be great no staying in the rv.

    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 .

  • Linda Stooksbury

    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.

  • laura akers

    I would use the card to give as christmas gift . And use the other card for a road trip

  • Jacqueline

    I would use it for a trip and give one to my mom cause she likes to travel

  • Lindsay

    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.

  • shannon buchanan

    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

  • David Fonger

    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)

  • Bernice Fortune

    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.

  • Michelle

    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!!!!

  • Paula Gillespie

    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.

  • Tracy T

    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.

  • Adam

    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.

  • Michaela Tratos

    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!

  • Ruby

    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.

  • Lyn Roberts

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

  • Susan Stahley

    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.

  • Kathleen

    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.

  • wendy

    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.

  • ROBERT CURTIS

    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.

  • Tina B.

    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.

  • Karen

    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!!!!

  • Michael Buckland

    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.

  • Nancy H

    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

  • charlotte chamberlain

    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

  • Tina

    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.

  • Nancy Hartwell

    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.

  • lynne M

    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.

  • Jennifer Johnson

    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.

  • sharon

    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.

  • Angie

    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.

  • Dawn Bertilson

    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.

  • crystal stephens

    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 :)

  • Vinay

    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.

  • Sheryl B

    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.

  • Ellen Allard

    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.

  • Eva D

    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

  • Gale Bandsma

    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!

  • Joyce Jackson

    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.

  • Mrs Patti Telfer

    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.

  • Karen H

    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.

  • herb

    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.

  • Chantal Crete

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

  • robert jones

Since I have moved in 2009, i haven’t seen her and i really miss her.

    Thanks for the chance

  • Eleanor Higdon

    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!

  • joyious ovens

    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).

  • DON TIDD

    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.

    I want to give other one to my best friend in Paris.

  • Kyra Gorski

    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.

  • sharon miller

    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.

  • pam outzen

    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

  • LindaMS

    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

  • Lorraine Ouimet

    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.

  • crystal pierce

    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.

  • Rebecca Runge

    I would use the travel card to go visit my family for the holidays.

I help with fundraisers for childhood cancers and they need our support!

  • EWART QUICK

    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!

  • Sharon

    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.

  • Werdon W Morris

    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!

  • christina oconnor

  • louise

    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.

  • Gladys Flournoy

    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!!!

  • Cindy

    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!!!

  • rosa johnson

    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!!!

  • F Chapman

    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.

  • Sharon Tompkins

    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.

  • Randy W

    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.

  • kate McCord

    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).

  • Randy W

    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.

  • Scott

    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.

  • Daphne Anstey-Martin

    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.

  • Jay Sanborn

    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.

  • Lynn H.

    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.

  • Co

    2nd honeymoon in Niagara Falls

  • Derek

    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.

  • Karen

    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.

  • Terry Mac

    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!

  • ginny

    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

  • jharmon

    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!

  • delaine

    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.

  • Terry Quedenfeld

    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.

  • kim payne

    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.

  • Laura

    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.

  • K.Davis

    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 !

  • solomon

    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 :)

  • Julie C.

    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.

  • Kelly

    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!

  • Mary Scott

    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

  • Petra

    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.

  • charles salmon

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

    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!

  • Lucille

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

  • Geoff

    Use it to go to take the kids to DisneyLand.

  • Robyn Connell

    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.

  • Dawn Bucko

    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! :)

  • kathy Kreis

    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! !.

  • Gloria E

    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!

  • Dianne Fuzek

    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.

  • Dan Black

    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.

  • Diane Lambert

    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.

  • Linda

    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

  • Bobbie Pilkinton

    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.

  • Brenda

    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.

  • Gloria E

    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!

  • Cindy M.

    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.

  • Dan Black

    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.

  • D. Francisco

    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.

  • Berzabeth Felder

    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.

  • G. Montoya

    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!

  • Christine Sigmon

    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!!!

  • Kim M.

    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

  • Linda

    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.

  • Kathryn Church

    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.

  • Janna Gray

    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.

  • Chris Brown

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

  • Deb Francisco

    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.

  • Barbara Johnson

    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..

  • J Plaizier

    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 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.

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

  • Jason jones

    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!!!

    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.

  • Judy

    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.

  • Nancy Fender

    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.

  • Ryan Webber

    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 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.

  • Paulette Baker

    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.

  • Nancy B from Many LA

    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!

  • Julie A

    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!

  • Cindy L

    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!

  • Susan O

    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.

  • Cheryl Van Dyne

    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.

  • Mary Lumsden

    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-:)

  • Clarice Kaawa

    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!

  • Dixie McKeel

    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!

  • Brandi Powell

    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!

  • Cindy L

    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.

  • Francisco

    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.

  • lucy berg

    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

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

  • CHERYL

    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.

  • Brad Engborg

    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!

  • Michelle

    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:):):):):):)

    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!

  • Melissa Y.

    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!

  • Kathy

    I would use the gift card I win to stay in of of our 2 favorite Best Westerns in Anaheim for a Disneyland trip.

  • Mary Lee

    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.

    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”.

  • Michelle Balvin

    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.

  • Erin Crimmins

    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.

  • Mary Jansen

    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.

  • Dena K

    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!

  • Jennifer Williams

    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.

  • Paul

    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.

  • Janet Hewitt

    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.

  • Kim

    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.

  • Cindy funderburk

    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

  • Tiffany Laventure

    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

  • Nancy

    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.

  • Cindy Moore

    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!

    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.

  • Diana Nelson

    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.

  • Gloria E

    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!

  • maryS

    “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!

  • Rory

    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

  • J. Bart

    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.

  • Heather E

    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!

    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.

  • Peter Martin

    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.

  • Peter Martin

    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.

  • abi

    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.

  • Dan Landis

    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.

  • Harmony B

    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.

  • gpapadop

    The second card I would give to friend to use for a special weekend escape.

  • Cindy Grabeel

    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!

  • Cindy Grabeel

    Typo correction from entry above: I’d love to TAKE her & her husband on a little get-away. Oops, and thank you.

  • John Barrett

    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.

  • Steve Hafford

    I would give one to my daughter, and the other to my son .

  • Marlo

    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.

  • maria m

    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.

  • deb

    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!

  • katie mae

    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

  • Beth Groundwater

    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.

  • Armando Garza

    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.

  • Dixie Bibbee

    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.

  • Michael

    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!

  • Jeanne Wagner

    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.

  • Leslye

    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.

    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!!

  • Kathleen Conner

    “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! =)

  • Betsy Goding

    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.

    I would use it on a trip to somewhere in Eastern Canada.

  • Mindy S

    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!

  • Gootsms

    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.

  • tara B

    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!

  • Brenda Eason

    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!

  • Shannan G

    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.

  • lyle schilling

    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.

  • Michelle Keiser

    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.

  • Vikki Gilden

    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!

  • tammy bush

    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 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.

  • Juli

    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!

  • John Billiris

    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.

  • Kim H.

    I would use the card for a cross border shopping spree and give the other to my best friend so she could come too.

  • Linda E.

    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.

  • Steve Dadolf

    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.

  • Joiceann

    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.

  • JRF

    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.

  • emily dunlay

    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

  • Laura Jacob

    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!

  • Peggy Pena

    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.

  • sharoninavolvo

    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)

  • Joseph Hall

    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

  • Linda Bradford

    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.

  • margaret grant

    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,

  • Kathleen Zank

    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.

  • Shery Sorensen

    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.

  • Joseph Hall

    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

  • Kim C

    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.

  • Leah Allen

    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.

  • LEngel

    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!

  • Paul B

    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!!!

  • Sharon

    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. :(

  • Connie G

    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.

  • kristind

    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!

  • Nicholas Porzio

    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.

  • Kristin

    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.

  • lmr

  • Clarissa G. State

    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”!

    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.

  • Cyndy Collins

    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!

  • Jennifer Schultz

    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.

  • Gina H.

    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.

  • Cheri

    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.

  • Tracy Robertson

    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!

  • Beth Hughes

    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.

  • Sidney Cook

    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.

  • Cheryl B.

    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.

  • Tom Nylund

    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,

  • Shelly P

    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.

  • Cathy E

    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!

  • christina ernst

    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.

  • Cheryl Thompson

    I would take a greatly needed vacation to the Smoky Mountains for some relaxation. Thanks for the chance!

  • Ruth Madewell

    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!

  • Margaret Porter

    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!

  • Steve Hamilton

    I would use the gift card on our month long road trip to Wyoming, Colorado and Montana in 2012.

  • Kimberly Snead

    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!

  • kennyandlisa

    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!!

  • Tina Rath

    I’d take good friends from Jamestown Ohio on a trip to Florida in January so they could enjoy warm weather.

  • deb kovac

    “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.

  • Amy Lafayette

    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.

  • melissa w

    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.

  • Shannon M

    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!

  • Eamonn

    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.

  • Kerry Harman

    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.

  • Kelly Paradise

    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.

  • John Joseph

    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

  • Steve Rhodes

    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.

  • Darlene Schubert

    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.

  • Pamela M

    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. :)

  • jules l.

    I would use the card for a summer vacation this year instead of having to stay at home!

  • kristi

    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!

  • Stacy

    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.

  • CT

    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.

  • leah falkowski

    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! :)

  • Lauren

    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!

  • Susie Nixon

    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.

  • Monica

    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!

  • Jimmy K

    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.

  • Scott Higbee

    Go to Vegas Baby,,,and give the gift to my best friend so she can go too…Weeeeee.!

I would love to gift him the gift of a great weekend for all he has done.

  • AL

    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!

  • M Werber

    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 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.

  • Susie Duarte

    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.

    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…

    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.

  • Terra Heck

    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.

  • MISH PRYOR

    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

  • Kimberly K.

    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.

  • John B.

    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.

  • Charles McCool

    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.

  • Julia Davis

    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.

  • Pam Shumate

    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.

  • frances a.

    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

  • Denise

    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!

  • Jackie Dishner

    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.

  • Jennifer Folker

    I would use them to make a road trip home for Christmas!

  • Paul Folker

    I would take my family back home over the holidays.

  • Katrina

    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!

  • Beth Hill

    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.

  • Shari Lynn Alligood

    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.

  • Shannon S

    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. :)

    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.

  • Ben

    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!

  • Valerie Arnold

    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.

  • Catherine Bradford

    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.

  • Dan R

    I would head to Europe and use the gift card since the dollar seems to be strengthening

  • Tom

    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.

  • Erin (@misselj)

    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. :)

  • Arafat Islam

    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.

  • Damon Jacobs

    It would make a great present for my Mom who is always traveling.

  • JoeyfromSC

    Thank you for the chance!

  • JoeyfromSC

    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

  • Grace Papaseraphim

    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!!!

    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.

  • Stephanie R

    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!

  • Joelle Diamond

    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!!!

  • Kathy Hanley

    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.

  • Karen Williams

    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.

  • Andrew Jackson

    We are in the process of planning our roadtrip honeymoon next June from San Fran to Las Vegas via LA.

  • Kenny

    NYC vacation!

    Gave one to my bro.

  • Jamie V

    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.

  • Gar

    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!

  • Jacob

    “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!

  • Ray

    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.

  • Huguette E.

    Hubby and I are way over due for a date night, so I’d keep it and take him somewhere overnight.

  • Mitch

    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!

  • conrad

    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.

  • Fawn Simpson

    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.

  • Angela T

    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.

  • JulieD

    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.

  • Candy Olivares

    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!

  • Tammie Simwamu

    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

  • Stephanie

    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!

  • Loraine S.

    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.

  • Pam Shumate

    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.

  • Kris M

    I would use one gift card for a warm stay in a southern state while attending a NASCAR race.

    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.

  • Brianna Beers

    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!

  • joy person

    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.

  • joy person

    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.

  • Sarah L.

    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.

  • Jennifer

    I would give the other card to my parents so they could have a nice weekend getaway

  • Kathleen M

    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.

  • Tammy

    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.

    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!

  • Gayle

    Thanks.

  • Kevin Gontarek

    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.

  • Michelle Simmons

    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!

  • rob

    If I won a $250 gift card, I would use it toward a March trip to the states. After

    be out in the cold, literally for sure.

    This gift comes at the perfect time. I would use the gifts on my trip to few Florida cities from Toronto, Canada. To enjoy the accommodation Best Western provides all over the world.

  • Gary Oglestone

    Use one on a road trip to Texas

    Give one to daughter for spring break getaway

  • David

    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.

  • SharonT

  • Becky D

    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.

  • Judi Glenn

    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.

    I would give my sister this gift.

  • Dona

    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.

  • Melissa Sanchez

    gift so she can take a trip somewhere.

    Thank you Best Western

  • Lisa Luksa

    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.

  • Dona F

    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.

  • jackie renshaw

    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.

  • walt

    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.

  • Jennifer Dixon

    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.

  • Nicky

    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.

  • Dona F

    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.

  • Jenni D.

    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.

  • Donald Bixler

    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.

  • Edwin L. Petersen

    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.

  • Ed M.

    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.

  • Jim D

    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.

  • George Perlingieri

    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.

  • Jim D

  • John Turner

    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.

  • Liz

    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

  • CarolBB

    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!

  • Jan Mc

    I would give the card to my son to use in Louisiana for a 5-day/night Firefighting school he must attend in January.

  • Garth O’Neill

    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!

  • Steve L

    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.

  • Maren

    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

  • Stewart Mercer

  • Teresa H

    I would use it for a mothers’ weekend getaway. The gift card would enable our whole group to go without being concerned about finances.

  • Ann

    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!

  • Tom S

    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.

  • Louise C

    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.

  • Colleen Adams

    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!

  • Laura s

    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

  • Irina

    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!

  • Katherine

    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.

  • L.D. Walker

    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.

  • Charles S.

    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!

  • Bev Bennett

    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.

  • Teresa H

    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.

  • Cheryl Turnley

    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.

  • NilKor

    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.

  • Valerie

    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.

  • Duane L. Frye

    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.

  • Plumsden

    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.

  • Deb K.

    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!

  • Kim

    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!

  • Charles Smith

    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.

  • Dana Griffiths

    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!

  • Shelley L

    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)

  • Moira Riley

    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.

  • stucker

    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!

  • Jody

    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!

    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.

  • Suzi Swanson

    With the first gift card we would take it to Kelowna (our fav place to shop!) and we alway stay at the best western.

    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.

  • walter patti

    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! :-)

  • ashley

    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.

  • Steve Rose

    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.

  • Allen Walton

    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.

  • Ani

    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. :)

  • Monica Marshall

    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.

  • Ted Stanulis

    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.

  • A. Dix

    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

  • Christy Slye

    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 ;)

  • Jan Westercamp

    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.

  • Marg

    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.

  • Kelly Johnson

    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.

  • Leona Grosbeck

    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.

  • Maria Perez-Schaley

    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!

  • richard westbrook

  • Ryan Anderson

    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.

  • leo tujak

    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.

  • jhbiz

    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.

  • Luis Alfaro

    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!

  • Rosa Bennett

    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

  • Chris Hutchison

    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

  • Anthony

    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.

  • shelley

    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!

  • Courtney

    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.

  • Shannon

    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.

  • StuartsLittle1

    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!

  • alan

    Would use the cards to surprise my family!

  • vincent p. montoro

  • Brenda Morrow

    I would return to the Santa Barbara Best Western where I stayed a few years ago. It was a lovely hotel.

  • Doreen K. Wiszowaty

    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.

  • Teresa J

    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!

  • cheryl ethrington

    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.

    Every Summer I travel the US 127 garage Sale. I would definately use the gift card to stay along the way.

  • LINDA J KRUM

    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.

  • Letha Scheese

    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.

  • richard wallace

    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.

  • Kathy Mc

    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.

  • Carolyn Lehsten

    I would use the Best Western Gift Card when we travel to Florida. We try to find a Best Western every time we travel.

  • Donna M

    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.

    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

  • Sharon Goldin

    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

  • kendra partain

    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.

  • Karla

  • Jason Field

    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

  • Sandy K

    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.

    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.

    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!

  • native_star

    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.

  • Martha Bendel

    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.

  • Asher Cohen

    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.

  • Linda Enos

    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.

  • Doris Powell

    I would use the $250 travel card for a trip we are planning to take to San Diego over the Christmas holidays.

  • D. Timbrell

    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 : )

    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.

  • Stacy Lewis

    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.

  • Pat

  • Don Sankey

    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.

    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!

  • Jim

    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.

    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

  • Jerome Roth

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Even with this illness, she continues to keep a po
