Last Updated 2022-09-28 By R.Flowers III

Wyndham Rewards members can earn up to 20 points per $1 spent at Wyndham brand hotels. This includes base points, elite status points, and Wyndham credit card points.

How are Wyndham points calculated on stays?

When staying at Wyndham brand hotels, you will earn between 10 and 20 points per $1 spent based on your elite status and whether or not you use a Wyndham credit card to pay for your stay.

Method Points Earned Per $1 Spent
Base points 10
Elite status 1 - 2
Wyndham credit cards 5 - 8

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. This means hotels that cost you $100 or less will still give you a great return on your spend.

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 $350 before taxes, you would earn 3,500 Wyndham Rewards Points.

If you had a cheap stay that cost you $100 or less, you would earn 1,000 Wyndham Points since it is the minimum you can earn on a stay.

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 up to 20% bonus points on top of the base points you earn as a member.

Level Bonus Points Earned
Blue Member No Bonus 0
Gold Member 10% 1
Platinum Member 15% 1.5
Diamond Member 20% 2

For example, if you were a Wyndham Rewards Diamond Member you would earn a 20% bonus on top of the 10 base points you would normally earn. This means you would earn an additional 2 points per $1 spent for a total of 12 points.

So a hotel that costs you $200 before taxes and fees would earn you a total of 2,400 Wyndham Rewards Points. That's 2,000 base points plus 400 bonus points from elite status.

Wyndham credit card points

Using a Wyndham credit card to pay for your stay can earn you up to an additional 8 Wyndham Points per $1 spent. Unlike base points and elite status points, you'll earn Wyndham points on taxes and fees when paying with a Wyndham credit card.

Points earned with the card will post to your Wyndham Rewards account when the statement ends. They are not added to your account balance shortly after a stay like base points and elite status points.

Credit Card Points Per $1 Spent
Wyndham Rewards Earner Visa Card 5
Wyndham Rewards Earner Plus Visa Card 6
Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Visa Card 8

Taxes aside, a $200 stay as a Wyndham Rewards Diamond Member using the Wyndham Rewards Earner Plus Business Visa Card would earn you a total of 4,000 points. That's 2,000 base points, 400 elite status points from the 20% bonus, and 1,600 Wyndham credit card points.
