Wyndham Rewards has a high value Masterpass promotion for an easy and potentially inexpensive 15,000+ points.
Members who register for Masterpass and pay for a Wyndham stay by October 31, 2017 using their Masterpass account earn 7,500 Wyndham Rewards bonus points. The bonus can be earned two times per account for a total 15,000 bonus points.
15,000 Wyndham Rewards points were selling for $165 during 2017 Daily Getaways. The packages eventually sold out at that price. This offer allows a member to book two hotel nights in many places and earn 15,000+ points for less than $165.
Masterpass is a free online/mobile card payment service through Mastercard.
I stayed in the upper upscale Ramada Apollo Amsterdam and somewhat luxurious Ramada Vilnius, Lithuania this year using Wyndham Rewards points for GoFast nights to get a significant rate discount.
And I stayed in some some very basic rooms in more out of the city tourism center like Days Inn Riga VEF, Latvia located a couple miles off the tourist map and Ramada Sofia City Center, Bulgaria, which although convenient for the train and bus station and perhaps city center to a resident of the suburbs is a mile or so from the main city center, where tourists are more likely to be hanging out sightseeing.
Amsterdam, The Hague and Vilnius are great hotels to redeem Wyndham Rewards points.
Bulgaria and Latvia are cheap places to earn 15,000 Wyndham Rewards points in decent enough hotels with free breakfast and convenient and cheap public transportation (about $1 USD). These hotels are more basic rooms, yet enable a tourist city center access within 15 minutes of walking out the hotel door.
Days Hotel VEF Riga, Latvia
37.00 EUR/night earn 500 bonus points rate ($43.57 USD).
$44 room night earns 8,400 Wyndham Rewards points.
Pay with Masterpass account and earn 7,500 bonus points + 500 bonus points + 400 or so base points.
Ramada Sofia City Center, Sofia, Bulgaria
55.25 EUR/night + earn 100 bonus points rate ($65.04 USD).
$65 room night earns 8,200 Wyndham Rewards points.
$65 room night earns 7,500 bonus points (Masterpass bonus), 100 bonus points (room rate) + 600 or so base points.
$109 earns 16,600 Wyndham Rewards points on two hotel nights.
Days Inn Nice Centre
Sun Oct 15 – Mon Oct 16
75.00 EUR + 1,000 bonus points room rate ($88.30 USD).
Nice, France fits well into my travel plans for October. I can easily sandwich two stays with airport arrival and departure out of Nice and travel along the coast in between Days Inn stays.
Less than $200 spend in Wyndham brands will provide me $600 added value using Wyndham Rewards points.
$166.60 for two 1-night stays earns around 18,600 Wyndham Rewards points.
15,000 bonus points (Masterpass bonus for two stays) + 2,000 bonus points for rate plan on 2 stays + 1,600 base points for $160 hotel spend.
18,000 points will pay for 6 GoFast nights at Ramada Apollo Amsterdam or Ramada Scheveningen The Hague. I consider that to be around $600 in hotel room rate future discount value for under $200 in spend in October. I can book a nice hotel room in Amsterdam at Ramada Apollo for $70 + 3,000 points.
115,000 Wyndham Rewards bonus points are enough to redeem for one go freeSM award (free night) night. A go free award is good for 1 standard room at a participating Wyndham Rewards hotel up to room’s maximum occupancy, subject to availability. Most hotels: applies to room rate only, including taxes. Alternatively, points can be redeemed for different Wyndham Rewards redemption options.
