Yes, a big hint: It won't be called a Summer Promotion (which is what you called it in your thread title), because the current promo ends July 8, and that was already called the Summer Promotion! Here is the US variant of it (still going on for 5 more days):

https://www.wyndhamrewards.com/trec/...ARVEL&variant=



And then there's already this brands-specific promo (at least in the US) that runs through the end of the year:

https://www.wyndhamrewards.com/trec/...R2012&variant=

Best Available Rate + 1,000 Wyndham Rewards Bonus Points*

*To qualify for the Best Available Rate + 1,000 Wyndham Rewards Bonus Points Program a Wyndham Rewards member must (i) book the member rate that offers 1,000 bonus points and stay at a participating Wingate by Wyndham®, Hawthorn Suites® by Wyndham or Wyndham Hotels and Resorts® property in the US, Canada, Europe, Mexico, Caribbean, and Bahamas between April 2, 2012 and December 31, 2012, and (ii) complete their hotel stay by December 31, 2012 (the "Promotion Period"). Members who check-out after December 31, 2012 will not receive any bonus points. Each individual hotel must elect to participate in the bonus point rate program. If a member has elected in their member profile to receive airline miles or rail points rather than Wyndham Rewards points, they will receive their regular airline miles or rail points in connection with the Best Available Rate plus the bonus 1,000 Wyndham Rewards Points. One stay includes all consecutive nights at the same hotel regardless of check-ins or check-outs. Members should allow six to eight weeks after completion of the stay for the bonus points or airline miles or rail points to be credited to their account. The program and its terms and conditions are subject to cancellation or change at any time. Click here to learn more about our Best Available Rate.

So can't you just wait until tomorrow already???

(Many promos at many companies aren't announced until they're live. So there's nothing necessarily unusual about still no word a day before the launch date.)

Quadruple points from second stay (UK)

Nothing in my inbox, but just logged in to my account to make a booking and was confronted by a banner: Quadruple points from second stay. Clicked the "register" button and it is now listed in my list of promtions.

it's 4x points OR MILES (at least in US) on 2nd-5th stay

Check the details page. The US main page says "How does 4x points sound", but the details page:

https://www.wyndhamrewards.com/trec/...UMMER&variant=

says it's either 4x points or 4x milles on your 2nd through 5th stay.

So is the UK version really only for points (not available for miles)? Or did you just miss that in the details?

(Not that I'm sure whether it's worth doing it for miles in the UK. In the US, it's usually more productive to earn points and then convert to miles later, except for Southwest Airlines, since Southwest earns a flat 600 Southwest points per stay, rather than earning proportional to points like all other airline. But since Southwest only flies so far within the US, I doubt that many people based outside the US collect Southwest points.)

No such mentions in the US version. Does that mean that Super 8 in China participates in the US version but not the UK version, or does it simply mean the US version T&Cs are incomplete at this point?

(BMI sounds simpler. Its program either doesn't exist already or is about to not exist, merging into BA's Avios since BMI has been bought by BA.)

2400 Southwest points are worth about $40... that's not so bad.

Exactly. Because Southwest points are a "flat" amount unrelated to the cost of the stay, but WyndhamRewards points are proportional to the cost of the stay (and I tend to only stay in inexpensive Super 8's and Days Inn's and Baymonts in the suburbs, on one-night stays), on any "multiplier" (2x, 3x, 4x) promo, or without any promo, I always value the Southwest points (under the "miles" earning settings) over WyndhamRewards points.

It's only when WynhdamRewards does a "flat" points promo (earn XXXX bonus points with your stay"), rather than proportional, that I choose to earn Wyndham Rewards points.

(Obviously, that math might work differently for someone staying in higher-end Wyndham brands, and/or someone usually doing many-night stays. Southwest points earnings don't go up as the cost of your stay does, but WyndhamRewards earnings do. So eventually there's some stay cost at which WyndhamRewards earning beats Southwest earning, but I don't ever come close to crossing that, so I've never worked out what it is.)

Further to sdsearch's comments on earning Southwest points, I want to maximize earning Southwest Companion Pass Qualifying Points (CPQP) this year. I have plenty of Southwest points so I don't care about maximizing them unless they're CPQP.

When someone completes this promotion, can they please post if the bonus points are CPQP? I had a Wyndham stay in May where the bonus points were not CPQP but I believe some earlier promos have been.

Please explain how we would tell. I don't have use for CPQP (I pretty much always fly alone, plus I don't earn enough points in a year that it'd be enough for CPQP even if every point I earned was CPQP!), so I'm unfamiliar with how you tell which points are CPQP and which aren't. And I'd bet several other people here might be like that.

(I won't have my first WR stay under this promo until a two and a half weeks from now, and won't have my second WR stay under this promo until a month from now, so my info may not be early enough to help you necesarily, unless you're planning to do your stays in early September, but someone else who may be doing stays earlier might also not know how to determine which points are CPQP.)
