Uh-Oh: Wyndham Rewards Has Stopped Offering Status Matching (For Now)

Wyndham Rewards Status Match

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to mourn the loss of a well-loved member of the travel community – the Wyndham Rewards status match. For the last 18 months or more, Wyndham offered to match your status in another hotel chain to status with Wyndham Rewards. That opportunity is sadly no more, because when checking the status match page last night, this is the message that greeted me. This is a disappointing turn of…

Some Hawaii properties closing and cancelling reservations

Reader usernamedchuck reached out to let us know that his upcoming stay next month at the Club Wyndham Bali Hai Villas in Kauai was proactively cancelled by the hotel and it looks like the Wyndham properties in Hawaii may be closed through the end of April (not surprising given the current situation). That led us to also find that the Wailea Marriott intends to be closed through May 25th. In usernamedchuck’s case, he was already…

Wyndham Rewards Adjusting Category Levels Of Some Properties (300 Up & 500 Down)

Almost a year ago, Wyndham Rewards changed how you redeem their points for reward nights. Prior to that, every one of their properties cost 15,000 points per night regardless of whether you were staying at a $40 per night Super 8 or a $300 per night property in Manhattan. That April 2019 change resulted in some properties halving to 7,500 points and others doubling to 30,000 points. Wyndham Rewards has now announced that they’ll be…

[Time to hop on board] From zero to hero on the status-match-go-round

If you followed this post last year and matched from some other hotel status to Wyndham Diamond to Caesars Diamond, it’s time to match back from Caesars Diamond to Wyndham Diamond. While I matched to Wyndham Diamond last year, it was a temporary challenge. I did not complete the necessary nights and thus my status dropped to “Blue” (general member) in late summer. My Caesars status stuck as was expected (that status expires at the…

Doing Disney off-property? Magic Village is a great property.

Last week, I spent a few days at the House of the Mouse. I made what used to be a fantastic redemption with Wyndham Rewards points. It isn’t a very good value on points any more (though it may not be terrible if you’re flush with Wyndham points). However, it is still a potentially excellent deal if you’re paying cash and looking for all the comforts of home on a trip to Disney where staying on-property…

Earn Double Points With Wyndham Rewards Shopping Portal

Wyndham Rewards Shopping Portal 2x Bonus

We shared details earlier about all the holiday bonuses you can earn through Upromise and five different airline shopping portals, but they’re not the only ones running a promotion. The fairly new Wyndham Rewards shopping portal is offering double points on purchases until December 2, 2019. Even with the bonus it might not offer an amazing rate compared to other portals, but it could be worth taking advantage of if you’re a few hundred points…

(EXPIRED) Wyndham Rewards shopping portal promo: double points through 7/15

Two pieces of news in one here: first, Wyndham Rewards has a shopping portal (who knew?). Second, they are offering double points for purchases made by 7/15/19. The email I received indicated that the double points promo sounded targeted, but I see this advertised on the main shopping portal page before logging in and based on the terms I think it should be open to all members (indeed the payouts shown already reflect the double).…
