A Super Wyndham Hotels Promotion Is Now Open

Wyndham LogoThe hotel chains within the Wyndham group range from inexpensive (Knights Inn, Days Inn, Microtel, Super 8, Howard Johnson, Travelodge, Ramada) to pricey (Wyndham Grand Hotels), yet they all offer a free night for 15,000 Wyndham Rewards points. This seems illogical, but it does make for some interesting arbitrage possibilities.

Right now Wyndham is running a ‘stay 2 nights, get 1 night free’ promotion. The free night is actually 15,000 points, which can be used to rent a room in some very nice properties. The promotion runs through June 30, 2018, and is limited to one free night per Wyndham Rewards account.

Last Fall Wyndham ran a very similar promotion. I did two one-night stays in inexpensive Days Inn properties while traveling in Missouri, and earned the 15,000 point bonus. With those points I spent a free night at the downtown Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront hotel, which provided an incredible view of the Chicago River from my room.

Note that, as per the Terms & Conditions, hotel nights must cost at least $25 to count toward this promotion. I see Wyndahm properties in north Austin, San Marcos and New Braunfels listed at $49/night (plus ~$7 tax). Do two 1-night stays at these (you must check in, but you don’t really have to spend the night) and you will earn a free night at an aspirational hotel like I did.

In addition, you will earn 1000 points for each stay. Even if you don’t stay at a Wyndham property, you can always purchase 5000 points for just $55 on their website.
