Wyndham Rewards has new bonus points and miles promotions for hotels stays from October 15 to January 31, 2014. The main promotion and likely the better offer for most Wyndham Rewards members is 2,014 bonus points per stay, beginning with the second stay, for up to five stays.
2,014 bonus points for 2nd through 5th stays is 10,070 bonus points in addition to the 10 points per dollar at all Wyndham hotel brands, except 5 points per dollar at Hawthorn Suites.
Registration for Wyndham Rewards 2014 bonus is required before your first stay is eligible. Miles earners are not eligible for this bonus.

Points or Miles analysis
In general, I think points are the better offer. Wyndham Rewards has a great points-to-miles transfer rate where 8,000 points exchanges into 3,200 miles with most programs. This is a rate of 1000 points = 400 miles.
Your travel pattern determines which promotion is better. If you spend $500 for an extended stay at Ramada Inn, then miles might be a better deal.
