Wyndham Rewards launched the ‘Unpack Your Bonus’ summer promotion offering from 2x to 10x points for hotel stays from July 1 to September 15, 2014.
Members must register and then select one out of ten suitcases to ‘unpack your bonus’. The result will be the points multiplier of 2x, 4x, 5x or 10x for the first four hotel stays during the promotion.
Unpack Your Bonus Game to determine your summer multiplier for bonus points.
All Wyndham brand hotel stays earn 10 points per dollar, except Hawthorn Suites stays earn 5 points/$1.
My bonus offer is 2x for the Unpack Your Bonus offer.
This means 20 points/$1 for the first four stays during the promotion.
20 points per dollar is a good earning rate for Wyndham Rewards, although 4x or 5x points might have been generous enough to have me looking at Wyndham brands for summer hotel stays, 2x points will not.
Nice try though.
