Earning Points On Stays

Wyndham Points Calculator for hotel stays. Calculate total points based on Wyndham hotel spend and whether or not you use a Wyndham credit card.


Wyndham Rewards allows you to earn between 10 and 17 Wyndham Rewards Points per $1 spent at Wyndham brand hotels. You will earn 10 base points per $1 spent along with up to 2 additional points with Wyndham Elite Status and up to 5 additional points using Wyndham credit cards.

Getting Started and Things To Note

Wyndham Rewards Points are primarily earned booking hotel stays at Wyndham brand hotels. Before diving into how these points are calculated, there's a few other things you'll want to note in order to make sure you're receiving credit for your hotel bookings.

Sign Up For A Wyndham Rewards Account

In order to earn points in the Wyndham Rewards program, one must have a Wyndham Rewards account. Signing up for a Wyndham Rewards account is free and I recommend doing so even if you only plan on staying at Wyndham a few times during the year.

Book Direct With Wyndham

You'll earn Wyndham Rewards Points when you book directly through Wyndham. This means you'll need to book your hotel stay use wyndham.com, Wyndham brand websites, the Wyndham mobile app, or via the Wyndham reservation line. Using third party services such as Expedia, Hotels.com, or Agoda.com, will not count as booking direct and you will not earn any Wyndham Rewards Points.

You'll only earn Wyndham Rewards Points when booking at Wyndham brand hotels. Wyndham has a total of 19 hotel brands along with 7 destination brands. These brands are:

How To Calculate

When staying at Wyndham brand hotels, you will earn base points per $1 spent at their properties. Along with base points, you'll be able to earn additional points based on Wyndham Elite Status and with Wyndham credit cards.

Wyndham Base Points

You will earn 10 Wyndham Base Points per $1 spent on the base rate of the room at Wyndham brand hotels with a minimum 1,000 points per stay. So stays that cost you $100 or less will still give you a great return on points.

The base hotel rate is the price shown to you before taxes are added.

As an example, if your Wyndham Hotel stay costs you $200 before taxes/fees, you would earn a total of 2,000 Wyndham Rewards Points. If your stay costs $354 before taxes, you would earn 3,540 Wyndham Rewards Points. If you had a really short and/or cheap stay that cost you $100 or lower, you would earn 1,000 Wyndham Points due to that being the minimum number of points you can earn on a stay.

Wyndham Elite Status Points

As you progress through the Wyndham Rewards Membership levels, you'll be able to earn additional bonus points thanks to the accelerated earning benefit. Based on your level, this will give you bonus points on top of the base points you earn as a member:

  • Blue Member: No Bonus
  • Gold Member: 10% Bonus
  • Platinum Member: 15% Bonus
  • Diamond Member: 20% Bonus

For example, if you were a Wyndham Rewards Gold Member you would earn a 10% bonus 10% on top of the 10 base points you would normally earn. This means you would earn an additional 1 point per $1 spent for a total of 11 points. As a Platinum member you would receive a bonus 1.5 points for a total of 11.5 points and an additional 2 bonus points as Diamond for a total of 12 points per $1 spent. These bonuses don't sound like a lot, but Wyndham Rewards Points have decent value which still makes these bonuses worth it in the long run.

Wyndham Credit Card Points

Along with earning base points and elite points, you can earn additional Wyndham Rewards Points by using Wyndham credit cards offered by Barclays. The Wyndham Rewards Credit Card (Platinum) will earn 5 points per $1 spent and the Wyndham Rewards Credit Card (Gold) will earn you 3 points per $1 spent. This gives you the ability to as much as 17 Wyndham Points per $1 spent when you combine Wyndham Diamond Status.

Wyndham Points earned via credit card spend will be for the entire cost of the hotel stay including taxes and fees. So if the total cost of your Wyndham stay is $500 then you would earn either 2,500 (5x) or 1,500 (3x) Wyndham Rewards Points depending on which Wyndham credit card you would use.

If you're trying to decide between the two cards, I recommend using the Wyndham Credit Card Comparison Calculator to see which card would better fit your wallet.

Calculate Wyndham Points

If you're trying to estimate how many Wyndham Rewards Points you'll earn on your next stay, you can use the calculator below. The calculator will take into account base spend, your elite status with Wyndham, and whether or not you use a Wyndham Credit Card. This calculator only focuses on Wyndham spend. You can use the Wyndham Credit Card Point Calculators if you want to calculate how many points you'll earn across all categories on Wyndham credit card spend.

Summary

The Wyndham Rewards Program offers you the ability to earn up to 17 points per $1 spent which can be pretty good if you're able to redeem your points for more than 1 cent each.

If you're looking to earn additional rewards points with Wyndham, consider spending with Wyndham's travel partners which can earn you points via car rentals, gas station spend with Marathon, and even on DoorDash deliveries.
