Wyndham Rewards is especially unique since 2015, when they overhauled their program. Wyndham Rewards charges a flat 15,000 points per night for an award stay, regardless of what hotel you’re looking to stay at. So whether you’re looking at their cheapest or most expensive hotel, a free night will cost the same number of points. Now, if only they had more aspirational properties.
While their program has an interesting redemption structure, they don’t offer all that many lucrative promotions, so the points can be tough to come by without a ton of stays. Well, Wyndham Rewards has just announced a promotion offering up to 15,000 bonus points after two stays, which is enough points for a free night at any property. This is one of the most generous promotions I’ve seen them offer in a long time.
Wyndham Rewards members can earn 7,500 bonus points per stay when they pay for a stay with Masterpass online or through the Wyndham Rewards app. The promotion is valid for stays through October 31, 2017, and you can earn the bonus twice, for up to 15,000 bonus points. The promotion is valid for members with accounts registered in the US or Canada, and bonus points should post 4-6 weeks after the eligible stay. Both pre-paid and flexible rates qualify, though you have to pay for the stay with the same card you use with Masterpass.
For those of you not familiar, Masterpass is Mastercard’s digital wallet option, similar to Visa Checkout, etc.
When you go through the process of making a booking with Wyndham, you’ll see the option of choosing Masterpass as your payment method. If you haven’t yet registered, it’s free and quick to do so.
For some, this promotion might be worth mattress running for. There are tons of Wyndham properties for ~$60 per night, meaning that two stays will cost you ~$120.
Meanwhile there are plenty of Wyndham properties that retail for over $200 per night.
Whether or not it’s worth the effort to mattress run and earn the points without a specific use in mind is a different story, though.
However, if you have some upcoming stays anyway, it could be worth switching a couple of them to Wyndham.
Do you plan on taking advantage of Wyndham’s Masterpass promotion?
