Check Your Accounts For BIG Wyndham Bonus Point Offer

Earlier this week I posted about the most INSANE Wyndham Rewards redemption opportunity I had ever seen. There was a Baymont Inn and Suites in Casper Wyoming that was charging $1,500 for August 20th, which of course is the night before the Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017. We’re already set on lodging camping in nearby Glendo, but I have a few friends who are trying to find somewhere to stay. So I tried to book the room for 15,000 points.

Then I remembered that I only have about 6,000 Wyndham points in my account. Dammit.

Wyndham also doesn’t have any transfer partners. Dammit.

And while they’ll let you buy points, you are capped at 5,000 per year. Dammit.

In the end, I was stuck staring at the best Wyndham redemption I had ever seen with no way to book it.

I promised myself then and there not to get caught with my pants down when the next total solar eclipse came around in 2024. I started looking at the best ways to get some Wyndham points.

Sure enough, as Ben posted about a week ago, there is a really good Wyndham offer for 15,000 points after two stays when you pay with Masterpass. That alone would be good for one night, but today Frequent Miler pointed out there’s another Wyndham offer that can be stacked. It’s targeted, but from what I’ve seen, most folks have received something.


Wyndham Masterpass promotion

Wyndham’s ’cause we miss you promotion

Way back on June 28, Wyndham seems to have sent out emails to members offering them some amount of bonus points for a 1-night stay. The subject of the email was This BIG offer is for you, ’cause we miss you. A better title would have been, you’ll probably miss this email amidst all the other crap we send you…

Once I found the email, I discovered that my offer was for 3,000 bonus points after one stay. My wife’s offer was for 10,000 bonus points, which seems to be the highest offer that anyone has received. Neither of us is particularly active with Wyndham, but hers has definitely been more dormant.


My wife’s ’cause we miss you offer

If you can’t find the email, don’t worry. It seems that the offer shows up in your promotions when you log into your Wyndham account.


Wyndham promotions show up in the upper right of your account

You do need to register for it, however, and must do so by September 30, 2017. Then you have until October 9 to complete the stay.

Here are the full terms and conditions.

Stay 1, Get 10,000 Wyndham Rewards Bonus Points Terms & Conditions:
Capitalized terms used without definition in these promotion terms and conditions (“Promotion Terms”) will have the meanings ascribed to them in the Wyndham Rewards program terms and conditions, available at www.WyndhamRewards.com/terms (the “Program Terms”). To qualify for the Stay 1, Get 10,000 Wyndham Rewards bonus points offer (“Bonus Points Offer”), a Wyndham Rewards Member must: (i) receive an email invitation from Wyndham Rewards specific to the Bonus Points Offer (the “Bonus Points Offer Email”); then (ii) complete the one-click registration process for the Bonus Points Offer between June 28, 2017 and September 30, 2017 (the “Registration Period”) by clicking on the “registration” link in the Bonus Points Offer Email or register through the “My Promotions” section of their Wyndham Rewards Member account on wyndhamrewards.com or the WyndhamRewards mobile app during the Registration Period; and (iii) complete one (1) night during a Qualified Stay at a Participating Hotel, which Qualified Stay has a check-in date between June 28, 2017 and September 30, 2017 and a checkout date no later than October 9, 2017 (an “Offer Qualifying Night”). Qualified Stays are subject to certain restrictions and do not include third party online bookings; see the Program Terms for more information about Qualified Stays at Participating Hotels. The 10,000 Wyndham Rewards bonus points earned by a Member pursuant to these Promotion Terms (the “Bonus”) will usually be posted to such Member’s Member account within two to four weeks following the completion of such Member’s Offer Qualifying Night. For clarity, completed nights during a Member stay which has a check-in date prior to June 28, 2017, and/or a check-out date after October 9, 2017, will not be counted towards the Bonus Points Offer. Maximum of one (1) Bonus per Member (even if such Member completes more than one (1) Offer Qualifying Night). 

Will these Wydham promotions stack?

My expectation is that you can combine the Masterpass Wyndham offer with the ’cause we miss you bonus points. My wife would earn 25,000 Wyndham points after two stays. That’s almost enough for two free nights at any Wyndham property, which is a heckuva deal.

Bottom line

There is a targeted offer for bonus Wyndham points after a 1-night stay. The maximum offer seems to be for 10,000 points, while the minimum that I’ve heard of is 2,000 points. When combined with the Masterpass offer for 15,000 points after two stays, this might just be mattress runable.

So now I’m all set with lodging for the 2024 solar eclipse, right? Well, not quite. I just remembered that Wyndham points expire 48 months after they are deposited into your account.  Dammit.

What Wyndham bonus offer did you get?

Comments

  1. The there are the targeted offers for Wyndham Rewards members who have actually paid for stays in 2017.

    My June 28 promotion offer as Wyndham Gold is stay 2 nights and earn double points. One bonus per promotion period.

  2. I received the 3,000 points offer back then. At first I was quite happy because of the “until October 9” and I have a stay coming up early October.
    However, when reading the fine print I discovered that you have to check in no later than September 30.
    So, unfortunately, I am not able to make use of that promotion. There is absolutely no need for me to stay anywhere before October. And I am not eligible for the MasterPass promotion (it’s only US and Canada, I think).
    Maybe something will come up for Q4?

  3. My experience with “targeted” offers is that when I don’t receive one but read about it on OMAAT, I just call the hotel or airline toll free number and ask them to give it to me. I’ve never been turned down yet. I’ve also done the same thing to improve my loyalty status – I call when I know I’ve got a trip coming up and I ask for a status challenge (i.e. 4 stays in the next 90 days etc.). Then once they agree and register my challenge, I immediately go online and book my stays. Instant status upgrade!

  4. The offer was not on my account when I logged in. However, when I clicked a link to the promotion someone posted, I was able to register.

  5. No offer here. No reason for them to miss me as a WR Plat with several recent and upcoming stays, I guess.

  6. @Mark D., I found a direct link and tried that method. Got a red error message: “Oops, it looks like you are not eligible for this promotion.”

  7. @Jackie – you turned down 25K points for a 1 night stay? I’d book at room at the Super 8 near my house for $79.00, check in and then go back home. Aeroplan has been offering a 35% bonus to convert Wyndham points to Aeroplan miles.

  8. I Also Have No Such Bonus Of “Stay 1 Night and Receive 10,000 bonus points”. I Would Also Think I Would Receive This Bonus As I Am Also A Platinum Rewards Member Soon To Be Diamond Status And I Stay Frequently. I Do Not Understand The Fact That I Didn’t Receive This Bonus. As The Person Stated Above That Is Also A Platinum Member You Would Think As Platinum Status (that requires ALOT of stays) That We Would Receive A Bonus Like That For Our Loyalty To Wyndham. As Stated From Above Person I Don’t Get It……
    I Just Emailed Them Asking Why I Didn’t Get The Bonus Or A Bonus For Loyalty. We Will See I Guess….
    And BTW Wyndam Rewards Is Always So Helpful and Friendly but Also I Called To Make Reservations The Other Day And Use “Go Fast” and I Have Before With No Issues, This Time I Was Told That There Were Only 3 Rooms At The Hotel I Requested For The “Go Fast” And I Was Told They Were Already Booked! ONLY 3 Rooms For Go Fast?! And This Is A Huge Hotel And You Would Think More Than Just 3 Rooms Would Be Available For Go Fast. It Should Be Any Room Available As You Pay Half The Amount and Wyndam Pays Half When Using Go Fast, So The Money Is Paid. It Is Ridiculous Only have 3 Rooms For The Go Fast Option. My Thoughts Anyway…..

  9. Just curious if anyone got points for both promotions.

    I only got the bonus points for my Wyndham stay, but I did not receive the 7500 pts for using masterpass.

    Has anyone encountered this? Is there something I can do to claim them?

    Thanks

  10. I did get both bonuses – for the stay and for booking using Master Pass. I booked two rooms simultaneously. One for me and one for my friends. But only wound up getting one Master Pass bonus.
