Wyndham is doing a lot right these days.
With its industry-leading network of almost 8,000 hotels, and free award nights at any of those hotels priced at just 15,000 points a night, Wyndham should be a contender for any stays where there’s a network hotel at the desired price point. Discounts and bonus points make the case even stronger.
This new promotion is a case in point.
Through October 31, Wyndham Rewards members can earn 7,500 bonus points for each of up to two completed stays booked and paid for onor the Wyndham mobile app using Masterpass. (Masterpass is MasterCard’s digital wallet app that allows one-click payments at participating companies, online and offline. You’re not limited to MasterCard-branded cards as the preferred payment method.)
Deal or No Deal
With free award nights at any Wyndham priced at 15,000 points, this promotion offers the possibility of earning one free night after two separate one-night stays. That’s great value.
Aside from the qualifying stays, the big hurdle for most will be the requirement to pay using Masterpass. Doing so requires setting up an account, including details of your linked credit cards, shipping address, and so on. It’s probably a five-minute process, maybe less. And it may or may not be a service that you’ll want to use on an ongoing basis.
Worth it? Almost certainly, yes. Eyes on the prize: a free night after two paid nights.
