Transfer Points To Wyndham Calculator
Use the Transfer Points To Wyndham Calculator to calculate the transfer of rewards from partner programs directly to your Wyndham Rewards account. The calculator will output how many points/miles you would need to transfer from each partnering programs to equal the amount of Wyndham Points you entered.
Capital One Miles
Capital One is currently the only program that allows you to transfer rewards directly to your Wyndham Rewards account. You can transfer your rewards at a 2:1.5 ratio meaning that every 2,000 Capital One Miles that you transfer will give you 1,500 Wyndham Rewards Points.
Capital One Venture and Spark Miles are best used to wipe away travel purchases made to the card at a 1 cent per point ratio. Transferring your points to Wyndham will typically devalue your points since you can already get a solid 1 cent value using them for travel. The reasons to transfer Capital One Miles to Wyndham is to top off your Wyndham account in the case that you're a few points shy of a redemption and do not wish to purchase Wyndham Points or you have a redemption that gives you exception value far beyond 1 cent per point.
Earning With Partner Credit Cards
Since Capital One Rewards is a transfer partner, this means you can use Venture Miles and Spark Miles credit cards to earn rewards transferable to Wyndham. Both Capital One Rewards programs only offer between 1 and 2 miles per $1 spent meaning you'll earn the equivalent of 0.75 to 1.5 Wyndham Points per $1 spent when transferred. The 2x earning cards do have annual fees, so you'll want to be aware of that.
Credit cards listed in the table allows you to earn rewards that are transferable to your Wyndham Rewards account. The earning rates for transfer partner credit cards are based on the transfer ratio when converting rewards to Wyndham Rewards Points. You can click on a card to learn more as well as calculate how many points you can earn based on your spend.
