but that Leanr More link leads to a 404 Error Page.

Meanwhile, while there's an 18-month "thing" mentioned still in the T&Cs, it isn't called "expiration":

14. Point Expiration, Cancellation and Account Inactivity

Except as may otherwise be required under applicable law, Wyndham Rewards points expire four (4) years after being posted to the Member's account, unless the points are forfeited or cancelled earlier due to membership inactivity (as more particularly described below), or otherwise in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. All accrued points in a Member's Wyndham Rewards account may be cancelled or forfeited if the Member has no Account Activity (as defined below) for a period of eighteen (18) consecutive months. For purposes of these Terms and Conditions, "Account Activity" means any point earning, redemption or transfer activity involving a change in the Member's Wyndham Rewards point balance, in each case, conducted in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. All issues related to the value, redemption and expiration of Travel Partner Currency will be governed by the terms and conditions then in effect for the applicable program.

I don't like that I can no longer see the 18 month date. I am just going to use all of the points from 2 of our accounts ( my wife still has the CC so if we use it every 6 months we are safe) and be done with it. We have about 200K now that I cancelled our Dominican AI trip

I found that Caesars is a great value for us, 10K points = $100 at Caesars and you can transfer 30K each per year

Every condo we want is 30K and there are only a couple ( Fort Myers beach) hotels that we would ever stay at that still take 15k/night.

I also cancelled all of the Wyndham CC's ( except my wife's as she gets 15k a year for renewing) so having activity every 18 months would be a PIA on the 2 other accounts.
