Earning points with AAA rates?

I am quite new to the Wyndham Rewards program. I recently drove across the country with a friend, and many Wyndham properties were conveniently located and available on our trip. I booked each of the nights with the Wyndham app and chose the AAA rate.

Unfortunately, after the month delay in posting, I found all 4 nights at different hotels earned no points.

Is this normal? Did I get spoiled by Hyatt, Hilton & Marriott, all of which allow earning with AAA rates?

While I could be wrong, I don't believe so. AAA is one of the most common discount code for the travel industry. So I don't believe Wyndham will exclude AAA rate.

Having said that - have you checked with individual properties?

I've had Wyndham hotels not post automatically, special rate or not special rate. Did you try submitting a missing stay request online for each one? (I don't know if you can submit a missing stay request on the app, I've only done it on the website.)

Sort of related I guess, unlike Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt , etc if your room is paid for with points you don't earn Wyndham points for spend made on property and charged back to your room ............given that I wouldn't be surprised if deny points on certain rates.

The best thing to do is call or email them.

I stayed at 8 different Wyndham hotels back in July using the senior discount rate. The points from the 1st 4 stays posted when I got back home. The last 4 did not. I waited a week to see if they would post, and they never did. Sent a missing points request for each of the 4 stays. Waited another week, and didn't get the points or any kind of reply. I had to call to get the points added to my account. I never had more than 1 stay not post in any hotel program, let alone 4. It's like their system just stopped working after a certain date.
