From Wyndham: A Free Night (Almost) After 2 Stays


Wyndham’s current systemwide promotion—$100 in Wyndham Rewards gift cards after two qualifying stays through September 6—is a dud, riddled as it is with hurdles and restrictions. But its just-announced mobile-app bonus offer is a winner.

Offer Details

Between April 27 and July 31, Wyndham Rewards members can earn 5,000 bonus points for each of up to two stays booked using the Visa Checkout app for payment. {{{snapshot_limit}}}

Deal or No Deal

Rewards members normally earn 10 points per $1 or 1,000 points per stay, whichever is greater. So the minimum earned for two separate one-night stays would be 2,000 points. If those two stays were paid for using Visa Checkout, the bonus would be 10,000 points, for a total of 12,000 points.

With all award nights at all Wyndham hotels priced at 15,000 points, that means that you’d be earning almost enough points for a free night after just two paid nights.

That’s a pretty good value, as bonuses go. And it can be combined with the gift-card promotion, making a good deal even better. But just a bit better.
