Wyndham Rewards lacks the various points-earning options of many other hotel programs.
Without a major credit card transfer partner, your main earning efforts will be through stays at Wyndham hotels and with its co-branded credit cards.
Earning Points on Stays
The Wyndham Rewards earning structure is perhaps the simplest among hotel programs:
- Earn 10 points per dollar on paid stays at all Wyndham brands
- Minimum 1,000 points earned per stay
- Elite status bonuses: 10% for Gold, 15% for Platinum, 20% for Diamond
Earning Points on Stay Promotions
Wyndham Rewards frequently has bonus point offers. Log in to your Wyndham Rewards account and click “Offers” at the top of the main page to see if there is a targeted bonus point offer for you to register for or book.
Earning Points by Booking Meetings
With Go Meet for bookings, you earn 1 point per dollar spent on:
- Stays of 10 rooms or more on at least 1 night of the event
- Meeting rooms
- Event food and beverage
Earning Points With Caesars Entertainment
Wyndham Rewards and Caesars Rewards have partnered to let you earn the same 10 points per dollar with a minimum of 1,000 points on stays at more than 30 Caesars properties.
You can also status match between Wyndham Rewards and Caesars Rewards.
You’re also able to transfer points between Wyndham Rewards and Caesars Rewards.
Earn Points With Avis/Budget Rental Cars
Earn 100 points per day on Avis/Budget rentals. Compare that to other miles or points you can earn for the same rentals.
Earn Points by Credit Card
There are 3 Wyndham Rewards Earner cards from Barclays:
|Card||Points Earned at Wyndham and on Gas||Other Point-Earning Categories||Annual Fee|
|Wyndham Rewards Earner Card||5x per dollar||2x per dollar on dining and groceries||$0|
|Wyndham Rewards Earner+ Card||6x per dollar||4x per dollar on dining and groceries||$75|
|Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Card||8x per dollar||5x per dollar on marketing, advertising, and utilities||$95|
All 3 cards earn 1% for all other everyday purchases.
Earn Points by Shopping Online
Make purchases at participating online retailers through the Wyndham Rewards shopping site to earn points. Select the retailer you’d like to shop with and click “Shop Now.”
Earn Points by Completing Surveys
Earn 500 points for joining Opinion Rewards Panel and completing your first survey.
Earn Points With Home Chef
New customers get 2,500 points with their first Home Chef box and 500 points for each additional box.
Earn Points With Marathon Gas
Members earn points on their fuel and select store purchases at Marathon Gas stations.
Buy or Gift Points
You can buy or gift points for a fee (view current rates).
Earn Airline Miles Instead of Points
You can choose to earn airline/rail miles on your Wyndham stays instead of points. This is a great option for those with infrequent Wyndham stays that would not earn enough points for free nights.
Blue and Gold members will earn 1 mile per $1 spent at Wyndham and Platinum and Diamond members will earn 2 miles per $1 spent.
