Wyndham Rewards fall offer looks lackluster compared to other offers in the more prominent upscale chains, but this promotion fares well against Best Western Rewards and Choice Privileges for hotel travelers frequenting the midscale and economy chains over the next two months.
Earn 5,500 Wyndham Rewards bonus points on your 2nd and 4th stays for a total bonus of 11,000 points after four hotel stays completed between September 26 and November 30. Note that you must check-in by November 26 and check-out by November 30 to earn bonus points with this promotion if your hotel stay occurs at the end of the promotion period.
There is a promotion limit of 11,000 bonus points with this offer.
Alternatively, you can choose to earn 1,000 bonus miles on 2nd and 4th stays, however, choosing points is the better deal since 8,000 Wyndham Rewards points exchange into 3,200 frequent flyer miles with a points-to-miles transfer through Wyndham Rewards.
Promotion registration is required, but stays completed during the promotion period will count for the bonus points as long as you register for this promotion by November 26, 2012.

Another aspect of this promotion is the opportunity for US residents to redeem 5,500 points for a Wyndham Rewards $25 prepaid gift card. The normal price is 6,500 points.
I think Wyndham Rewards points have more value than $25 for 5,500 points. There are many hotels at the 14,000 points level with Wyndham Rewards that will go for over $100 per night.
I find good savings with Wyndham Rewards points when I drive into a town and need a last minute hotel night. I have used my Wyndham Rewards points sitting in the lobby of a hotel using their hotel computer to book my hotel night on points and walked over to the counter to pick up my room key.
Wyndham at more than 7,000 hotels worldwide has more hotels than any other global hotel chain and a Wyndham brand hotel is just about anywhere in the USA.
