Are buying Wyndham points worth it?
If you're a few points shy of a redemption and in need of points sooner than later, your best bet is going to be buying Wyndham Points to top off your Wyndham Rewards account. Wyndham does not have a large amount of direct transfer partners, so it will not be as easy to build rewards using partner credit cards like some of the other big hotel brands.
Just remember that when buying a large amount of points, you'll always want to make sure that you can redeem them for more than what you paid for them. The Point Calculator values Wyndham Points at around 0.7 cents per point on average, those there are redemptions that can give you significantly more value if you're able to research a few destinations.

How to earn Wyndham points
The best way to earn a large sum of Wyndham Points is through intro bonuses and everyday spending across Wyndham credit cards, Capital One Venture & Spark Rewards credit cards, and Citi ThankYou Rewards credit cards.
Venture & Spark Rewards credit cards
Capital One is a direct transfer partner of the Wyndham Rewards program. Venture Miles and Spark Miles can be transferred to Wyndham at a 1:1 ratio meaning that every 1,000 miles you transfer will earn you 1,000 Wyndham Points.
Capital One miles can also be redeemed for 1 cent each towards travel. This gives you the extreme flexibility as you could choose to transfer your points or use them to wipe away travel purchases.
For example, if you had 60,000 Venture Miles or Spark Miles, you could transfer those points to Wyndham and end up with 60,000 Wyndham points or use them towards $600 in purchases with Wyndham.
You can also use them towards car rentals, airfare, parking, and even transfer them to other airline and hotel rewards programs.
Citi ThankYou Rewards credit cards
If you own the Citi Premier® Card, you'll be able to transfer ThankYou Points to Wyndham Rewards at a 1:1 ratio. This means every 1,000 points you transfer will give you 1,000 Wyndham Points.
The Citi Premier Card is Citi's best travel rewards credit card and one of the best ones on the market when it comes to earning a high return across popular categories.
You can pair the Citi Premier Card along side other ThankYou Point-earning credit cards to maximize your spend and earn even more rewards which can be transferred to Wyndham or many other partners.
