It's really funny as its cheaper to get 50,000 points ^ than 48,000 points:td:

In for 1-50,000 and 1 - 28,000

Bump to alert everyone for tomorrow!
I first saw this on the Choice forum of FT.

Someone mentioned that you can convert 2.5 WR points to airlines miles, including UA. Can you verify that this could be applied to this promo? If so, it's a great deal and I'll try to grab one. I also read in another thread that conversions are possible in batches of 8K, 17.5K and 30K points. I've been looking at the Wyndham site and it doesn't offer a lot of info and there's no FAQ in this forum, so I'd appreciate any comments.

I inquired of Wyndham about the conversion of these particular points to miles via the website several days ago but never received a reply. Frankly, I wouldn't bother unless I was sure they were convertible, and I can't find that assurance.

Are you sure that you can buy 2 separate certificates of different miles??

They're all sold out.

For those that missed out on the Wyndham points sale, and are looking to buy some hotel points, two of the Choice Privileges packages from yesterday flopped over to today. 32,000 Choice points for $120, 36,000 Choice points for $140.

Darn it! I missed all these!
I find it noteworthy that all the Wyndham packages sold out within 36 minutes while Choice points are still available after 30 hours :D !
