Wyndham Rewards Double Points Groundhog Day Promotion

Earlier this week Wyndham Rewards announced a Groundhog Day promotion, whereby they’ll be offering double points for up to four hotel stays. Registration is required in order to qualify.


The promotion is only valid for stays booked at qualifying rates between February 3 and March 21, 2014. Hotel stays must be completed by March 28, 2014, to qualify for the promotion. As I said above the promotion is capped at four hotel stays, though you can earn the bonus points for up to three rooms per stay. Bonus points should post six to eight weeks after the completion of the stay.

Furthermore, if you have the Wyndham Rewards Visa Card you earn an additional 500 points per stay. Those bonus points should post six to eight weeks after the promotion ends.

Frankly I think Punxsutawney Phil would be embarrassed to be associated with this promotion. This is a lackluster promotion compared to what’s being offered by just about every other brand, including:

Not only is the qualification window shorter, but previously booked reservations don’t qualify and the bonus itself isn’t that great. Then again, I’ve never really found that Wyndham Rewards even tries to compete with the “big” programs.

Anyway, can’t say I really stay at Wyndham properties much, and for that matter can’t say I really like their rewards program, especially after they devalued their mileage transfer ratios without any advance notice earlier this week.
