I have never actually been a Best Western Rewards member, before this status match. Used the Best Western Rewards Website, and their online status match form, provided all of the details asked for, and then provided my IHG Rewards Club - Spire Elite Membership Materials, and 3-4 days later I received this email below:
Dear Mr E XXXXXX,
