This past week, Wyndham Rewards announced that the program is expanding to the Middle East and Asia Pacific which means broader access to Wyndham hotels and more ways for members to earn and redeem their rewards. In addition, the program is set to expand in Australia, New Zealand and throughout Latin America by the end of the year. With this recent expansion, we thought it would be a good idea for you to know more about the program to either remind you of all the great benefits that come with the program or to have you start thinking about joining the program. Wyndham Rewards is FREE to join and offers numerous ways for members to earn points. The rewards program offers over 6,500 locations worldwide where you can earn and redeem points. For every stay at Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, Wyndham Grand Collection, Wyndham Garden, Wingate by Wyndham, Ramada, Days Inn, Super 8, Baymont Inn & Suites, Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham, Howard Johnson, Travelodge and Knights Inn members receive 10 points for every dollar spent or airline miles, which depends on the number of miles per dollar offered by airline partners. Wyndham Rewards also has a loyalty recognition program, Wyndham ByRequest, for those who stay at Wyndham Hotels and Resorts. ByRequest is a free membership program that entitles members to exclusive rate discounts, free internet, and late check-out. ByRequest members earn 10 Wyndham Rewards points per dollar spent or 500 miles per stay. Wyndham Rewards offers several options to redeem points. Some of these include free nights for as little as 6000 points, room upgrades, gift cards, rental car discounts, airline miles, shopping, and even to go to must-see events. To get to these great rewards even faster, Wyndham Rewards has a Visa card where for every $1 spent members receive 5 additional points on top of the regular 10 points on hotel stays and 2 points everywhere else Visa is accepted. New members receive 18000 or 12000 bonus points with the first purchase depending on the card. Wyndham Rewards can now be earned at all corners of the world which gives members plenty of opportunities to earn points during your travels. If you have not already done so, be sure to add the Wyndham Rewards program to your UsingMiles dashboard. You can keep track of all your points and see how close you are to receiving free nights and other great benefits!
