You can buy up to 190,000 Wyndham Rewards points at 12 noon ET Wednesday, May 4 through DiscoverAmerica.com Daily Getaways offers. These are great discounts on Wyndham Rewards points for hotel nights or points-to-miles exchange.
$117 for two nights at a Wyndham Hotel is a deal you’d be hard to match with Priceline or Hotwire hotel buys.
Wyndham Rewards is one of the best hotel loyalty programs for low level points-to-miles exchanges with airlines. Wyndham Rewards has a fixed rate of exchange at 8,000 points = 3,200 miles with most major US airlines.
Buy 48,000 points for $135 (AmEx) or even $150 and convert to 19,200 miles in American, Air Canada Aeroplan, Continental, Delta, Frontier, United and US Airways and a few others.
Hotel Rewards in U.S. for most Wyndham Rewards brands like Ramada, Super 8, Days Inn, Howard Johnson, Travelodge, Knights Inn, Microtel Hawthorn Suites and Baymont are assigned to four tiers.
Wyndham Rewards for one hotel free night at most Wyndham brands:
- Tier 1 = 6,000 points
- Tier 2 = 10,000 points
- Tier 3 = 14,000 points
- Tier 4 = 16,000 points
Wyndham Hotels and Resorts are a separate category of rewards at 15,000 to 45,000 for properties around the world. In the U.S. most Wyndham hotels are in the 15,000 to 25,000 points range.
Wyndham Rewards points on Discover America Daily Getaway Wednesday May 4, 2011
16,000 points = $50 ($45.00 if payment with American Express). 725 sets available. Maximum purchase is two per member.
28,000 points = $69 ($62.10 if payment with American Express). 125 sets available. Maximum purchase is one per member.
32,000 points = $100 ($90.00 if payment with American Express). 400 sets available. Maximum purchase is one per member.
48,000 points = $150 ($135.00 if payment with American Express). 150 sets available. Maximum purchase is one per member.
50,000 points = $130 ($117.00 if payment with American Express). 298 sets available. Maximum purchase is one per member.
Oddly the price is not the same rate for these Wyndham Points packages. 28,000 points and 50,000 points are best buys with a rate around $2.50 for 1,000 points compared to $3.12 per 1,000 for the other three sets.
A member may purchase a maximum of six sets of Wyndham Rewards points from these five offers for a total of 190,000 points for $494.10.
This is really an excellent deal. 190,000 points can be converted to 76,000 airline miles (plus any bonuses like US Airways) or buy a whole lot of hotel nights or even a one week Wyndham Resort beach vacation. This deal certainly beats Starpoints at 20% off or $28 per 1,000 points for someone wanting frequent flyer miles.
