Wyndham Rewards is offering a new promotion where you can easily earn a free night by completing two qualifying stays.
Here are the key terms:
- To get this members-only offer, just choose Masterpass when you pay online or with the Wyndham Rewards App. (Masterpass is similar to Visa Checkout as it allows for more expedited checkout in the future.)
- Complete your qualified stay by October 31, 2017 and earn 7,500 bonus points.
- Good for up to 2 stays.
- Bonus points offer is while supplies last and is for Wyndham Rewards members only
Back in the spring of 2015, Wyndham completely overhauled their reward program to make it more simple. The most significant change was that they did away with standard redemption tiers/categories that most other hotel programs use (category 3, 4, 5, etc.) and they put in a new redemption scheme where all properties (even all-inclusive properties) can be redeemed for 15,000 points per night.
You might be a little surprised to find out that Wyndham has a surprisingly wide network. You’ll find them in pretty much every major city in the US and in many smaller cities as well. And they have a large presence overseas, too. Now, it is true that many of the Wyndham properties are hotels/motels you might not be dying to stay at like the Days Inn, Super 8, Knights Inn, etc. However, Wyndham does have some solid properties located around the globe.
In a major city like Houston, it’s not hard to find Wyndham properties listed under $50 per night. So for this promotion, it might be worth doing a “mattress run” where you book two very cheap hotel stays just to receive the 15,000 points which can be used on properties that cost $280 or more! Just remember that with mattress runs, you still need to physically check-in to the property for them to count.

Remember that the Wyndham co-branded credit from Barclaycard is offering 45,000 points right now. With that sign-up bonus and this promotion you could easily get 4 nights free by hitting the $2,000 minimum spend requirement and dropping around $100 on this promotion. 4 nights at a Wyndham property could easily net you over $1,000 worth of hotel stays, so these offers are worth considering.
This is a pretty solid promotion especially considering the existing offer for the Wyndham credit card. But remember, this is promotion is for hotel stays and not hotel nights.
