If you’re a frequent guest at Wyndham hotels across the globe — including the company’s other brands, Ramada, Days Inn and Baymont Inn & Suites — you can earn free stays rather quickly by signing up for the hotel chain’s Wyndham Rewards With ByRequest frequent-guest program.
The program allows you to earn points every time you stay at a Wyndham-brand hotel. You can turn those points into either free hotel stays or free airline miles, your choice.
You can boost the number of points you earn by applying for one of two credit cards associated with the program, the Wyndham Rewards Visa Signature Card with no annual fee or with an annual fee of $39.
Joining the Program: Joining Wyndham Rewards With ByRequest is simple: You log onto the program’s online enrollment page and fill out a brief form that asks for basic information about yourself. The form will ask you to input your name, address and phone number. You’ll also have to create a username and password so that you can access your account online later.
The entire form should take less than 15 minutes to complete. Registering for the rewards program is free.
Earning Rewards Points: Once you join the Rewards With ByRequest program, you’ll automatically earn 10 points for every dollar that you spend during a stay at a Wyndham-brand hotel. Or, if you’d prefer to work toward a free airline ticket, you can instead choose to earn 500 free airline miles for every stay.
You’ll also earn free Internet access, expedited check-in service and free domestic long-distance calls after signing up for the program. After staying three nights at a Wyndham hotel, you’ll earn extra perks such as a welcome snack and drink and extra towels and pillows.
Earning with the Wyndham Rewards Visa Card: You can earn points even more quickly if you book your hotel stays, and charge other purchases, with a Wyndham Rewards Visa Signature Card.
You can choose from two cards: The Wyndham Rewards Visa Signature Card with an annual fee allows you to earn 16,000 bonus rewards points after you make your first purchase or balance transfer. You’ll also earn five points for every dollar that you charge during a Wyndham hotel stay and two points for every dollar that you spend elsewhere. You will have to pay a $39 annual fee for this card.
The Wyndham Rewards Visa Signature Card with no annual fee awards you 12,000 bonus points after your first purchase or balance transfer. It also gives you three rewards points for every dollar that you charge during your stay at a Wyndham hotel and two points for every dollar that you charge on other purchases.
The purchase interest rate attached to both cards varies depending on your creditworthiness. Depending on your credit, you’ll qualify for a rate of either 13.24 percent, 16.24 percent or 19.24 percent.
