Earn 8,000 Bonus Wyndham Rewards Points — But…

Click on the image above to access the official Internet web site of this current promotion by the Wyndham Rewards frequent guest loyalty program.

Complete a minimum of two stays at participating hotel properties in the United States and Canada which participate in the Wyndham Rewards frequent guest loyalty program by June 30, 2014 and earn 8,000 bonus Wyndham Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points.

To put this in perspective, 8,000 Wyndham Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points is enough to redeem for both a gift card valid with Restaurant.com in the United States worth $25.00 and movie vouchers for two adults from Hollywood Movie Money.

In Canada, you receive two gift cards worth five dollars instead of the gift card worth $25.00 at Restaurant.com.

Wow…or — more appropriately — as some FlyerTalk members like to post: Yawn.

This “X-Treme reward” for dinner and a movie ties in with the promotion for the new X-Men movie Days of Future Past.

You must first register for this promotion; then complete your qualified stays at participating hotel properties — each at a qualifying rate — with arrival dates from now through June 30, 2014; and complete your qualified stays by July 7, 2014.

You can earn 8,000 bonus Wyndham Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points when you complete your second, third and fourth qualified stays — with a maximum of three rooms per stay — within the promotion period. Stays where you check out of the hotel property at which you are staying after July 7, 2014 will not be counted towards the promotion.

One qualified stay includes all consecutive nights at the same participating hotel property — regardless of how many times you check in or check out of the hotel property — at a qualifying room rate.

Allow six to eight weeks after completion of your qualified stays for the bonus Wyndham Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points to be credited to your account. You do not qualify for the 8,000 bonus Wyndham Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points if you do not show up at the hotel property where your room is reserved.

If you elected to earn airline frequent flier loyalty program miles or rail points in your member profile, you are not eligible to earn Wyndham Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points in this promotion.

Rates offered by most Internet travel agencies and certain other rates do not qualify. Super 8 hotel properties in China and Howard Johnson hotel properties in Argentina do not participate in this promotion.

Other terms and conditions apply for what I consider to be yet another lame promotion by a lackluster frequent guest loyalty program.

With only twenty hotel properties which participated, I even consider this promotion from October of 2012 which would have netted you 16,000 bonus Wyndham Rewards frequent guest loyalty program points for only one stay better than this current promotion…

…and that promotion was live before several perceived devaluations — all outlined here — to the Wyndham Rewards frequent guest loyalty program went into effect.

Needless to say, I will pass on this promotion — and I recommend that you pass on it as well. In my opinion, it is not worth staying at hotel properties which are mediocre at best — as my experiences listed here suggest — just for dinner and a movie for two.

    It was asked (by FT member Mauibaby2008) on April 5 in the WyndhamRewards forum:

    “So does this mean we earn 8,000 points on stay #2, 8,000 points on stay #3 and 8,000 points on stay #4 = 24,000 points after 4 stays?”

    but there’s still no confirimation of whether that is correct, a week and a half later.

    24000 points after just 4 cheap Super 8 or Days Inn stays doesn’t sound that bad (I’ve redeemed 16000 points before at hotels close to $200/night), but given WyndhamRewards reputation , none of us want to trust that this is the case without a confirmation from WyndhamRewards.
