5,000 points for Wyndham brand stays in U.S. Feb 12-May 14, 2014

Wyndham Rewards is offering 5,000 bonus points per stay at 79 Wyndham and Wyndham Garden hotels in the USA and Canada from February 12 through May 14, 2014. There is no limit to the number of times this bonus may be earned, which makes this offer different from most Wyndham Rewards promotions that tend to be capped at two to four stays.

Wyndham Rewards promotion registration is required.

There are some fine hotels in this bunch of participating properties offering 5,000 bonus points per stay.

Wyndham stays earn 10 points per $1. With 5 stays at $100 per night, a traveler could pick up 30,000 points redeemable for one night at many of the Wyndham hotels or two free nights at most Ramada Inn hotels around the country. That can be a decent rebate on Wyndham spend.

Wyndham rewards categories

Wyndham Rewards has changed its reward chart three times in the past 12 months. Here is the 9-Tier chart unveiled this month with a big jump from 30,000 to 50,000 points for Tier 9 hotels.

Parc 55 Wyndham San Francisco Union Square is an example of a Tier 8 hotel at 30,000 points. Night and Dream hotels in Manhattan are 30,000 points per night. Ramada London Stansted Airport is an example of a Tier 1 hotel award at 5,500 points per night for a hotel that receives 4 of 5 circles in TripAdvisor.com reviews.

Wyndham Rewards received some negative attention on travel blogs recently for adding a Tier 9 without advance notice and placing Wyndham Koloa Landing at Poipu Beach on the southern part of Kauai in this new category. The hotel regularly gets $400+ per night room rates, so creating a higher tier category for this property makes sense.

Even a single $500 stay at any of the participating Wyndham hotels will earn 5,000 base points and 5,000 bonus points placing hundreds of economy brand hotels within reach of a free night at 10,000 points for places like Ramada, Super 8, Howard Johnson, Microtel, Travelodge and Days Inn.
