Earn 1,000 bonus points per stay at Wyndham Rewards brand hotels in U.S. and Canada from June 1 – September 5, 2011. No registration required. All Wyndham Rewards brands regularly earn 10 points per $1, except Hawthorn Suites at 5 points/$1.
Members with earning preference of miles are also eligible for the 1,000 bonus points per stay. The good points-to-miles exchange rate of 10 points = 4 miles for most frequent flier programs means points are generally the better earning choice for Wyndham Rewards members who want miles, unless there is a miles bonus. The normal miles earn rate is only 2 miles per $1 when earning preference is set to miles rather than points.
Wyndham is a necessary choice sometimes when traveling rural America. There are many places where Best Western, Choice Hotels and Wyndham will be the only hotel loyalty program options and this 1,000 points bonus promotion provides some kind of hotel stay rebate.
Free nights with Wyndham Rewards for most hotel brands in U.S. are assigned to four tiers at 6,000 points, 10,000 points, 14,000 points and 16,000 points. Four $50 hotel stays during this promotion can be sufficient for a free 6,000 points award night.
Also, keep in mind this summer that Best Western has three stays for one free night from June 19-August 14. I’ll write up this offer once the details are online, probably next week. The link gives the Best Western promotion details from FlyerTalk and Best Western representatives have confirmed details of this offer to me.
Choice Hotels is offering 8,000 bonus points for two stays from May 19-August 11. Loyalty Traveler post May 16.
The last sentence of the Wyndham Rewards 1,000 bonus points per stay promotion terms raises concern for me:
“Each individual hotel must elect to participate in the Promotion.”
That is way too vague for my comfort level when making hotel stay plans.
Do I need to call each hotel and ask?
There are too numerous to count brands in Wyndham Rewards. They seem to create new brands in their dreams at night. No wait…they actually added Dream and Night as two new hotel brands in Wyndham this year.
