That is correct, you will receive your airline miles for your hotel stays and after two stays get a bonus of 10,000 points.

Also to clarify, there is a limit of 2 bonuses.

I am inquiring on the international offer indeed.

And I understand that the bonus is only available in the currency of points (10,000 WR points), but my question is regarding the standard earning for hotel stays, i.e. 500 miles per stay in certain frequent flyer programmes.

So if i set my earning preference to miles for all stays, will i still receive the 10,000 bonus points after every 2nd stay for up to 3 bonuses in addition to the standard mileage earning?

In case you have provided the wrong info (as your two posts are contradicting themselves) above, you should really edit.

This is also clearly wrong. See t&c; "Provided they have complied with (i) to (iv) above, Members can earn 10,000 Wyndham Rewards bonus points for every two Qualified Stays completed during the timescales set out at (iii) and (iv) above, subject to a maximum bonus entitlement of 30,000 Wyndham Rewards Points"

30000/10000 = 3 and not 2

Gosh, not only are IMHO 10000 points worth much more than a couple movie tickets, but WR lets international people earn a bonus on 6 stays (3 10k bonuses times 2 stays each) but US people max out after 4 stays (2 movie ticket bonuses times 2 stays each)? Why such a discrepancy? (And obviously it also causes confusion!)

Hello, Thank you for pointing out the posts and letting me clarify. For our International members (all countries outside the US, Canada and Mexico); If your earning preference is miles and you are registered for the promotion, you will earn miles for your hotel stays and receive the bonus in points.

As for the limit, please let me verify the terms and conditions and get back to you.

Thanks!

Hello,

I am researching the bonus limit and will get back to everyone shortly.

As for the US, Canada and Mexico members they are receiving two movie tickets (limit of 4 tickets), double points / miles (limit of 4 stays) when booking online and a mailed comic book after second stay.

Thanks!

I think posts from official representatives containing wrong info also need specific editing (very easy), as some might not thread the whole thread etc., not only adding a new post.

Thanks for helping out in any case. You presence is highly appreciated

Can someone please tell me what this promotion is?

Stay 2 and get 2 nights? Does this mean I can stay at any 2 Wyndham properties and get 2 nights free at any Wyndham properties?

Well, can you please tell us where you've seen this? That would help!

One possible guess: The main promo (for USA) is:

For every 2 stays (up to 2) you get double (ie 2x) points or miles, plus you get 2 movie passes (or is it one movie pass for 2 people?).

Asia not included?

So this 10,000 bonus pints stay is only for Europe and Africa?

I am planning some stays at the new Ramada Manila and new Microtel Manila Mall of Asia. This would have been a great promo and will give me alternatives from the groups of hotel I am currently using.

Hello, I am sorry but The hotels you mentioned would not qualify as Manila is not a participating country. See below for participation hotels from the terms and conditions of the promotion.

“Participating Hotels” are Ramada®, Days Inn®, Baymont Inn & Suites®, Hawthorn Suites®, Howard Johnson®, Dream®, Night®, Knights Inn®, Microtel®, Travelodge® (U.S. hotels only), Wingate® by Wyndham branded hotels and Super8 – however Super8 China does not participate in this promotion. Wyndham Hotels and Resorts® properties located in Europe, North America, Latin America, the Caribbean and China also participate in this promotion.

I would read it as the 'properties located in Europe, North America, Latin America, the Caribbean and China also participate in this promotion' restriction only applies to Wyndham Hotels and Resorts properties.

All other brands should be included worldwide, except for Super 8 in China.

Hence, the properties in the Phillipines should perhaps indeed qualify. Can WR rep clarify further?

Also, with regards to the maximum number of bonuses that can be earned under this promotion (Non-US version), it is 3 times 10,000 points right? not just 2 bonuses as some mentioned earlier.

I registered for the 10k points after every 2 stays up to 30k points offer but the email confirmation says instead that I will get double points or miles, so which do I get?

Thank you ldnlhj and WR2!

This is great. I have been loyal to another hotel group but the new Ramada and Microtel in Manila is a great option with their competetive rates ( <$100) and great location. They are brand new hotels as well ( less than a year). Also the points to miles conversion is very good compared to other chains of hotels.

Now its time to try Wyndham.
