You can purchase a maximum of 40,000 points through the promotion, plus the 8,000 bonus points, for a total of 48,000 points. Points cost 1.1 cents each prior to the bonus, so if you max out the promotion you’d be purchasing 48,000 points for $440, or paying ~0.92 cents per point.

Wyndham Rewards points can be converted into airline miles at the following ratios:

  • 8,000 points gets you 3,200 miles
  • 17,500 points gets you 7,000 miles
  • 30,000 points gets you 12,000 miles

Theoretically if you purchased 48,000 points you could convert those into 19,200 airline miles (six of the 8,000 point packages). That’s like paying ~2.3 cents per mile. Certainly not a steal, through Wyndham Rewards does have several useful airline transfer partners, so that’s potentially not a bad rate if you’re short on miles for an award you’re eying. It’s also not a bad rate if you’re looking to top off a Wyndham Rewards account to have enough miles for an airline transfer.

As a reminder, Wyndham Rewards points purchases are processed by points.com, so wouldn’t qualify as hotel spend for the purposes of your credit card.

Comments

  1. Combine this offer with United’s current offer of 25% bonus miles on hotel point transfers and your paying 1.8 cents per United mile.

  2. Thanks for the help, but it doesn’t seem to work for me. Is the promotion only valid for US residents or something?

  3. I’ve recently signed up and even with different countries of residence (including the US), it doesn’t work. I’m guessing the offer is targeted?
