Wyndham Rewards ...
The Wyndham Rewards program caters to leisure and business travelers who visit popular destinations in the United States, Europe, Mexico and Asia. As a Wyndham Rewards member, you'll earn points when you stay in any of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts' more than 8,000 properties across several distinctive brands, including Days Inn by Wyndham, Dolce Hotels and Resorts by Wyndham, Ramada Worldwide by Wyndham and Wyndham Grand. Wyndham Hotels & Resorts' alliance with Amtrak and numerous air carriers – such as American Airlines and United Airlines – also allows you to earn miles or points. You can earn points on car rentals, too, thanks to Wyndham's partnerships with Avis and Budget. Wyndham Rewards also introduced a partnership in 2017 with Caesars Entertainment's Total Rewards program, allowing members to link accounts, status match and earn and redeem points at Caesars properties. Additionally, you can earn rewards points on hotel and everyday purchases if you have one of two Wyndham Rewards Visa credit cards. Earned points can be used for hotel stays, vacation rentals, flights, gift cards and retail purchases. What's more, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts' acquisition of the La Quinta hotel franchise in 2018 means Wyndham Rewards members can transfer points to the La Quinta Returns program and redeem them for free nights, and vice versa. La Quinta Returns members can also status match their membership to the related Wyndham Rewards elite tier. Both programs are expected to merge in spring or summer 2019.
