Wyndham Rewards’ New, Non All-Inclusive Sweet Spots

Wyndham Rewards’ New, Non All-Inclusive Sweet Spots
Caroline Lupini

This year Wyndham Rewards has made several changes to their awards program, which has likely affected many devoted members. Eight all-inclusive properties were removed from the Wyndham Rewards program on June 1, which affects any travelers who are hoping to redeem and earn points at its Viva Wyndham locales. And back in April, Wyndham Rewards changed its award chart from offering a flat-rate 15,000-point redemption per night for all hotels to a three-tiered point system that ranges from 7,500 to 30,000 points per night.

Fortunately, there are still plenty of great hotels and resorts that fall in an affordable price range. In April, about 3,000 properties went down in price from 15,000 points per night to 7,500 points per night (mostly budget hotels like Days Inn and Super 8). There are over 6,000 properties that fall into the 15,000-30,000 point per night range. If you’re looking for a nice resort to redeem your points at now that you no longer can at Wyndham all-inclusives, here are 5 fantastic resorts that are still in a great price range for you and your family.
