|About these ratings|
The Wyndham Rewards program awards points that can be redeemed for free hotel stays, Amtrak Guest Rewards points, airline tickets, car rentals and gift cards. You can earn points every time you stay at a participating Wyndham Hotel Group hotel. You'll also have the option to collect points through the company's partners and on everyday purchases made with your Wyndham Rewards Visa credit card.
As a member of the Wyndham Rewards program, you will accrue points through qualified stays (rooms booked directly through Wyndham) at hotels within the Wyndham Hotel Groups's extensive network. Baymont Inns and Suites, Days Inn, Howard Johnson, Knights Inn, Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham, Ramada, Super 8, Travelodge and Wingate by Wyndham all award 10 points or two airline miles for every dollar spent toward room costs. If you book a stay at a Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham hotel, you'll accrue five points per dollar applied to your room rate or 500 airline miles per stay. If you stay at a Dream Hotel, a NIGHT property or TRYP by Wyndham hotel, you can earn 10 points per dollar applied to your room rate (excluding additional taxes or service charges for meals and beverages) or 500 airline miles per stay. Lastly, if you book a room at a Wyndham Hotel and Resorts property, you can accrue 10 points per dollar spent or 500 miles per stay. You can also earn between 50 and 500 points through qualified car rentals (full-priced rentals made directly through partner car companies, such as Avis and Budget). Points can also be earned by using your Wyndham Rewards Visa Card to pay for hotel stays and everyday purchases. You'll also be rewarded for using partner services like FTD.com, LifeLock and Energy Plus. Should you need additional rewards points, you can purchase them through Points.com.
Wyndham Rewards points can be used for free hotel stays at participating Wyndham Hotel Group properties. The number of points needed to cover a free night's stay varies by hotel tier. A free night in a hotel assigned to the lowest tier requires 5,500 points, while a rewards stay in the highest hotel tier requires 50,000 points. Below are the numbers of points required to redeem a free night in several popular destinations:
|Destination||No. of hotels||Calculated cost of least expensive room (in points)||Calculated cost of most expensive room (in points)|
|New York City||13||30,000||30,000|
The calculated costs shown above are based on booking searches conducted by U.S. News on June 19, 2014. We analyzed room rates for one-night stays arriving Saturday and departing Sunday four weeks from the research date.
You can also use Wyndham Rewards points on airline tickets, Amtrak Guest Rewards points, car rentals, gift cards and other merchandise. The program's partnership with various air carriers allows you to redeem accumulated points for miles. Points required for airline miles are based on individual airline rewards programs. You may also redeem points for merchandise, magazines and gift cards. Additionally, you may opt to donate your points to charity.Membership » « Overview
