June 21 - Sept 15 get double points for up to 4 stays after 1st stay.

A good deal for many people!

But not valid on stays longer than 3 nights? Did I understand that correctly from the T&C's?

I had planned on staying @ a Ramada for almost a month this summer, but this may change things. I hate the idea of checking out every 3 days to stay elsewhere for a night and it's a pain for housekeeping, but if Wyndham wants to provide incentive for me to spend 1 night in 4 at the competition, so be it.

Where do you see that??? I don't see anything about a maximum of 3 nights in the T&Cs. What I see is "a maximum of 3 rooms per stay".

However: You do not get double points on your first qualifying stay! (Only on your second, third, fourth, and firth qualifying stay during the promo period.) So you should do a cheap one-night stay first somewhere else, before you do that month-long stay at the Ramada!

Here's the complete T&Cs (I'm posting them here for posterity, as the link will stop working when the promo ends, but some people will want to know what T&Cs were later on):
2013 Summer Promotion “Double Points” Terms and Conditions

To qualify for the "Summer Double Points" promotion and earn double Wyndham Rewards® points, the member must (i) register at WyndhamRewards.com/double or 1-866-996-7937, (ii) book two stays between June 21, 2013 and September 13, 2013 at a qualifying rate with a participating hotel and (iii) complete their hotel stays by September 20, 2013. Members will receive double Wyndham Rewards points starting with their second qualified stay at a participating hotel during the promotion period. One stay includes all consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of check-ins or check-outs. Members will receive double Wyndham Rewards points, starting with their second stay within the Promotion Period for up to four (4) separate qualified stays (for the second, third, fourth, and fifth qualified stays) with a maximum of 3 rooms per stay. Member stays with check-out dates after September 20, 2013 will not be counted towards the promotion. Rates offered by most on-line travel agencies and certain other rates do not qualify. Members should allow six to eight weeks after completion of registration and stay(s) for the bonus points, to be credited to their account.

A coupon for one free 20-page Shutterfly photo book will be distributed between June 21, 2013 and September 13, 2013 upon check in at participating hotels in the U.S. only. Shutterfly photo book coupon is only available while supplies last. Offer expires 10/4/2013 (11:59 P.M. PST). Offer is good for one free 20-page 8x8 hard photo cover photo book at shutterfly.com.

I'm confused by this part. If I've elected to earn airline miles, do I get double airline miles or regular airline miles with the bonus given in the form of Wyndham points?

Hello,

You would receive the regular earning for the stay, but the bonus will be Wyndham Rewards points.

Hope that helps!
