The Best Western Mastercard is a rewards credit card for travelers who like the convenience and comfort of a good hotel (and complimentary breakfast buffets).

The card doesn’t come with an annual fee or minimum income requirement but requires a credit score of 650 or higher. It has a standard purchase interest rate of 19.99%, a cash advance rate of 24.99% and a regular balance transfer rate of 21.99%. However, the card also has a special balance transfer rate of 1.99% for the first 10 months for new activations.

General purchases on the Best Western Mastercard earn one reward point per dollar spent. That works out to about 0.9% cash back. However, you earn five reward points per dollar (equivalent to 4.5% cash back) when spending at Best Western Hotels.
