No free movie for you

The US, Canada, Mexico promotion version is double points or miles and includes free movie tickets. The terms of the international promotion state members can exchange points for movie tickets which is not a good deal compared to the value of Wyndham Rewards points.

I think this offer by Wyndham Rewards is better than the double points promotion for US members. This is a good offer for international visitors to the US who desire lower priced midscale and economy lodging. This is the best bonus currently being offered by the midscale chains.

30,000 Wyndham Rewards points can be two hotel nights at most Wyndham brands or one night at a Wyndham Hotel in a place like New York or London. There are also Ramada Hotels in many international city centers.

30,000 points exchange into 12,000 miles with the following airlines:

  • Aeromexico
  • Air Berlin
  • Aeroplan
  • Air China
  • American Airlines
  • China Eastern
  • Czech Airlines
  • Delta Airlines
  • Hainan Airlines
  • Frontier Airlines
  • US Airways
  • United Airlines
  • Amtrak Guest Rewards
