The Wyndham Rewards Program is one of our favorite Hotel Programs on the market! This is because Wyndham Rewards is very straightforward when it comes to redeeming points for FREE nights. Their rewards can be redeemed in hotels or condos worldwide. You can also redeem their rewards at All-Inclusive hotel properties! How cool is that?

We love these points because of how basic they make it. Recently, we went to the Dominican Republic and stayed at an all-inclusive and absolutely loved it! Be sure to check out our article at the Dominican Republic Viva Wyndham V Samana for tips on how to get a FREE all-inclusive stay! Now, back to getting those Wyndham Rewards Points yourself!

You can earn Wyndham Rewards Program Points by

  • Booking Nights at any of their worldwide properties

  • Purchases made using the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Credit Card

  • Booking Business or Social Meetings at Participating Hotels

  • Completing Surveys via Opinion Rewards Panel

  • Booking Rental Cars through Avis or Budget

  • Purchasing Points directly from Wyndham Rewards

  • Participating in a Wyndham Vacation Club Timeshare Presentation

Free Nights

The best part of the whole Wyndham Rewards program is that Free Award Nights can be redeemed for only 15,000 Wyndham Rewards Points/Night. And as you can see, there are a ton of ways to earn Wyndham Points. Our favorite though is through credit card points by utilizing those signup bonuses! More about this later.

Wyndham Member Levels

Wyndham Rewards has 4 different Member Levels within their program. These levels are typically earned by the number of nights accumulated with the hotel brand. The Member levels each come with different perks. This should go without saying, but the higher the level, the better the perks. Included in the perks are late check-out, a welcome amenity, early check-in, Suite Upgrade, and Caesars Total Rewards Status Match. To be eligible to Match your Wyndham Rewards Status to Caesars Total Rewards, you need to have at least Platinum or Diamond Status with Wyndham Rewards.

Member level Perks with Wyndham are Blue, Gold, Platinum or Diamond. Blue you receive at enrollment, then 5, 15, and 40 stays in order.

Level up

There are a couple of ways to move up the member levels with Wyndham. The first way, we already know is to stay at Wyndham properties. To qualify for Diamond, as shown above, you’d have to stay 40 nights in a Wyndham Property! This way is a bit more cumbersome and time-consuming. However, there are alternate ways to get higher status without actually staying at one of their properties. Second, you can open up the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Credit Card. This card provides an automatic upgrade to the Platinum Member Level. If you are considering going this route, make sure that you choose the right Barclays Wyndham Rewards Credit Card. One of the cards has an automatic status and one doesn’t. Third and easiest, is the Wyndham Status Match, which we will get to in a minute.

Barclay Wyndham Reward Credit Card

The Barclays Wyndham Reward Credit Card typically comes with an offer of 45,000 Wyndham Rewards Points. This could equal 3 free nights at any Wyndham property. Lisa and I used our 3 free nights in 2018 in Oahu, Hawaii. Because of our Diamond Status, we were upgraded to an AMAZING one-bedroom studio! Included in the studio were a fully furnished kitchen, living room, and balcony! Another perk of the Barclays Wyndham Rewards card is you get 3,000-anniversary points on your card anniversary! These anniversary points will help you get to a free night quicker too!

Now, just to note, on the second option, the problem with the Barclays Wyndham Reward Credit Card option is that you only end up with Platinum Status. If you are considering trying to pursue a Caesars Rewards status match, you might already know that the best perks of that program come with having Diamond Status. Luckily, you can still receive a 3 Free Night Stay at the Atlantis in the Bahamas with Platinum Status. So that is something to keep in mind if you can’t reach Diamond. For people who are aiming for that Diamond status and already have a high-level hotel status with another hotel chain, you may qualify for a Wyndham Rewards Status Match. Fortunately, there are multiple programs that work with the Wyndham Rewards Status Match.

Wyndham Status Match

You can match your Hotel Status to Wyndham Rewards from any of these Participating Programs.
