rate them F

I lost 32000 wyndham points due to inactivity around the first of the year. I was relocated due to work last year and lived in corporate housing until we found a house to buy, we sold our old house and had a lot more important things requiring our attention than our stash of Wyndham points.
We found out there was a problem when Wyndham sent my husband no less than 3 e-mails warning him his points were going to expire, so he triggered some account activity and saved his points. Then we checked my account, they had my correct e-mail but never sent me a warning, just cancelled my points and account. When I e-mailed them to ask for some customer consideration, it took 3 times to get past CSR's that replied with form letters. Finally after 2 months of trying, I got a supervisor to look at my letter, the best she could do was offer to reinstate them if I stayed 4 times in a short period of time. I had no travel plans during the time frame so...
I gave up on my points, and will never stay at another Wyndham again in my life, they have poor communication, lacking customer service and no consideration for a loyal customer,,,my husband will be trading his 68000 points to airline miles and joining me in a boycott of their hotels. The worst customer loyalty program I ever joined!!! can you give them a F- ?!?

Thumbs up FFP mileage

Not sure if anyone is aware but this seems to be probably the only loyalty program that I know of (I could be wrong) that you can convert your points to FFP Miles and credit them to another person besides yourself.
