That’s enough for up to 1 FREE NIGHT1. Simply book by 1/31/18 and complete up to 3 Qualified Stays by 2/28/18 to earn bonus points for each stay.That’s enough for up to 1 FREE NIGHT1. Simply book by 1/31/18 and complete up to 3 Qualified Stays by 2/28/18 to earn bonus points for each stay.

Interesting promotion. I'm on the fence about this one. I completed the last one; paid a little below $90 for both stays, obtained gold status and will use the points towards a $179/room (before taxes). Basically getting that room for half off, so that made sense to me at the time.

If this promo was the same stay twice get 15,000 points I'd be much more inclined to do it.

I agree with you. I would also participate if this was 15,000 points for 2 stays.

Any experience if I can book two different hotels the same night, check in for both, and it counts as two stays? I found a $14 and $15 rate in Vegas with the $10 off app code, and I'd book a room at both hotels to earn the VISA checkout bonus and hotel stay. That's 3K (VISA checkout stay 1) + 5K (VISA checkout stay 2) + 1K (room 1) + 1K (room 2) = 10K points for $69!

I found this to be the confusing part:
"Visa Checkout is not available for payment when a booking is made through WyndhamRewards.com."
Indeed, you can't use Visa Checkout at WyndhamReward.com. You have to pull up the Visa Checkout promo page there, then click the "book now" button from the Visa Checkout promo page, and it takes you to brand new website (which I've never seen before) with a totally different look (and which requires a separate login) and only there can you use Visa Checkout.

And once you use Visa Checkout there's no indication on the screen that you used it (it populates the credit card you used in the normal credit card field).

This is the part that I don't like. It was the same way for the MasterPass promo. There's no indication on the screen that you used it! My points posted for both of my stays though. I'm thinking there may be some trigger or indication on the backend if the MasterPass or Visa Checkout was used.

Has anyone completed any stays and have their points post for this promo yet? I know the last one there was some time in between them posting.

As a side note, I've decided to do this offer after all. Originally my travel plans had me cutting about even, so I was on the fence. But then, the destination(s) changed a bit and the value of the promos doubled themselves in value. Calculating right around a 64% savings for 3 nights. That's worth it, for me. Will throw in my data points, once I have them!

Points and cash ?

Anyone know or tried for a points and cash booking and did it work?

1. If you read directly above your post, you'll see that no one has reported the bonus posting on any stay yet!

2. Post 1 above has the T&C, which says you only earn on a Qualifying Stay. A Qualifying Stay (for the purpose of earning points, not for the purpose of elite status) does not include any kind of reward stay. And a points + cash stay is considered an award stay, not a paid stay, so it wouldn't be a Qualifying Stay for this promotion.

3. Visa Checkout does not work on WyndhamRewards.com. So can you even pay the cash portion of a points + cash stay with Visa Checkout? Don't you have to book a points + cash stay at WyndhamRewards.com?

No one has stayed with Wyndham using this promo yet? Don't see any data points posted yet.

Quick question, for anyone who may know. I have read that you can buy up to 5,000 points per year. Is that calendar year? Example: Buy 5,000 points on 12/28/2017. Then you can buy another 5,000 points on 1/1/2018. Or does it count from the time you buy a year?

I've made 2 stays so far. One stay was 1 day into the promo, nothing posted yet.

I have my first stay under the promo next week, the second stay the week after that. The third stay will be in January sometime, but the third one I haven't booked yet.

It is probably too early, but has anyone been successful in booking this promo through a cashback portal and receive the cashback ?
(I was successful with the summer promotion).
