Wyndham Rewards has released a summer promotion for stays of two nights or more. It’s billed as awarding members a free night but it’s actually a bonus of 6500 points. It’s a good promo to keep in mind if you’re considering a short getaway as travel begins to open up, especially if you plan on heading to New Brunswick where Wyndham has a large number of hotels.
Even when added to the minimum base points of 1000 per stay, the 6500 bonus won’t get you a free night at most Wyndham properties. It’s an unusual loyalty program in that it has only three reward categories – 7500, 15,000 or 30,000 points per night are required for a “Go Free” redemption. Unfortunately, there are relatively few properties in the lowest category.
However, there is also a points & cash booking option. During the last Wyndham promo I wrote about opportunities to save on hotels using “Go Fast” rewards which are particularly helpful if your points balance falls under the realistic minimum of 15,000 for a free night or if you wish to redeem points to reduce the cost of a higher category room.
- Go to the promotion page on the Wyndham website to register by September 2, 2021
- Make a qualifying stay of two consecutive nights or more June 1 – September 6, 2021
- Earn the bonus up to three times
(There is also a promotion to get a 35% bonus when you buy Wyndham points until June 30, 2021)
Terms and Conditions
Capitalized terms used without definition in these offer terms and conditions (“Offer Terms”) will have the meanings ascribed to them in the Wyndham Rewards program terms and conditions, available at www.WyndhamRewards.com/terms (the “Program Terms”). As more particularly set forth below, this promotion (“Offer”) offers Members the opportunity to receive 6,500 Wyndham Rewards bonus points (the “Bonus”) for up to three (3) Offer Qualifying Stays (as defined below). The Bonus, when added to the minimum of 1,000 Base Points a points-earning Member earns for a Qualified Stay pursuant to the Program Terms, results in earnings of at least 7,500 Wyndham Rewards points per Offer Qualifying Stay. 7,500 Wyndham Rewards points are good for 1 standard bedroom per night at thousands of Participating Hotels, subject to availability. At most properties, a Go Free award applies to room rate only, including taxes. See the Program Terms for more information about how to redeem Wyndham Rewards points.
To qualify for this Offer, a Wyndham Rewards Member must: (i) first register for the Offer by completing the registration process on wyndhamrewards.com, wyndhamhotels.com or any of the official brand websites of any participating Hotel Chain, or through the “My Promotions” section of his or her Wyndham Rewards Member account on wyndhamrewards.com or the Wyndham Rewards mobile app, in each case, between June 1, 2021 and September 2, 2021 (the “Promotion Period”); then (ii) after registering but no later than September 2, 2021, book a Qualified Stay of two (2) or more consecutive nights at a Participating Hotel on wyndhamrewards.com, wyndhamhotels.com, any of the official brand websites of any participating Hotel Chain, the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts mobile app, or via the official toll free reservation number of Wyndham Rewards or any of the participating Hotel Chains, or directly with a Participating Hotel; and (iii) begin such stay no earlier than June 1, 2021 and complete it no later than September 6, 2021 (any stay fulfilling the requirements set forth in the foregoing clauses (i) through (iii), up to a maximum of three (3) such stays, an “Offer Qualifying Stay”). Maximum of three (3) Bonuses per Member, regardless of how many stays are completed by a Member during the Promotion Period. A no-show does not count as an Offer Qualifying Stay. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in these Offer Terms, if a Member number is associated with more than one (1) Offer Qualifying Stay with the same check-in and check-out dates (“Same Date Stay(s)”), only the first such Offer Qualifying Stay to be processed by Wyndham Rewards will count toward this Offer (and the additional Same Date Stay(s) will not be deemed Offer Qualifying Stays).
For clarity, Members must register for the Offer before booking and completing their Qualified Stay(s) in order for any such stay(s) to count toward this Offer, and any stay that has a check-in date prior to June 1, 2021, and/or a check-out date after September 6, 2021, will not be counted towards the Offer. Stays at Participating Caesars Entertainment Properties, vacation club resorts and vacation rentals, are not eligible for this Offer. Go Fast and Go Free award stays are also not eligible for this Offer.
Qualified Stays are subject to certain restrictions, including, without limitation, that such stays cannot be booked via any third party website; see the Program Terms for more information about Qualified Stays at Participating Hotels.
A Member who is eligible to receive a Bonus pursuant to these Offer Terms will typically receive it within two to four weeks after the completion of the applicable Offer Qualifying Stay.
Members who complete an Offer Qualifying Stay pursuant to these Offer Terms, but have elected to earn airline miles in their Member profile will earn base miles in accordance with the Program Terms and the Bonus in the form of points; accordingly, such Members will not earn enough Wyndham Rewards points from an Offer Qualifying Stay to redeem them for a free night.
The Offer is exclusive to Wyndham Rewards Members. Wyndham Rewards, Inc. may cancel or modify the Offer without notice. The Offer is subject to full Program Terms in addition to these Offer Terms, and is void where prohibited.

If you need a hotel stay of two nights or longer, this promotion is a convenient way to pick up some extra Wyndham points. The program doesn’t get a huge amount of attention in hotel loyalty circles, but with an enormous number of properties around the world, it doesn’t hurt to have some points to use in future travels either for a free night or to save by using points & cash.
