How much are Wyndham Rewards points worth? The answer is about 0.8 cents when redeemed for free nights at Wyndham brand hotels. This means that 10,000 Wyndham points are worth about $80 in value.
Here's our full valuations for Wyndham Rewards points:
|Redemption options||Redemption value in cents|
|Wyndham maintenance fees||0.5|
|Gift cards||0.33 - 0.37|
Free night awards: 0.6 cents to 1 cent per point.
The best value you can obtain from Wyndham Points will be when you use them for free nights at various properties including Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, Wyndham Vacation Club, Vacasa vacation rentals, Cottages.com, and Landal Greenparks.
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts
Redeeming your points at Wyndham's standard 19 hotel brands will give you around 0.6 per point on average.
Wyndham's reward redemptions are split up into two types called 'Go Free' and 'Go Fast'. Go Free awards are when you redeem your Wyndham Points to cover the entire cost of the room and Go Fast awards are when you use a mixture of points and cash (but mostly cash).
There's three different redemption levels for Wyndham free nights as shown in the table below.
|go free Costs per night||go fast Costs per night|
|7,500 Points||1,500 Points + Cash|
|15,000 Points||3,000 Points + Cash|
|30,000 Points||6,000 Points + Cash|
When searching for Wyndham hotels, there's no real way to find out if a hotel has great value without running calculations. The costs in cash and the cost in points are all over the place and there's no real structure to the rewards system.
As an example, I looked at the first 15 Wyndham hotels that popped up for a search in Atlanta, Georgia during the fall.
For go free awards, the best value was the Micro Inn & Suites Atlanta Airport which offered 1.14 cents per point and the worse option was Super 8 Austell/Six Flags which offered 0.45 cents per point. The overall average of all 15 hotels was 0.7 cents per point.
For go fast awards, the best value was LaQuinta Inn & Suites Atlanta Airport North which offered 1.33 cents per point and the worse option was still Super 8 Austell/Six Flags with 0.4 cents per point. The average was 0.74 cents per point.
As you can see, there's not a big difference in value between go free and go fast awards.
Wyndham Points can be redeemed for free nights at Caesars Entertainment properties starting at 15,000 points per night. These are best booked through the www.wyndhamhotels.com/caesars-entertainment page, but you can also search for them using the standard search in which they will appear along side Wyndham's other brands.
Caesars Entertainment properties can easily give your Wyndham Points a value of 1 cent per point without too much effort, but you can also easily get 0.2 cents in value if you book on day in which the hotel stay is extremely cheap.
For example, here's a look at the cost in cash and cost in points to stay at Harrah's Las Vegas.
With this booking, you could accidentally end up paying 15,000 points for a hotel that's on sale for $35 per night.
Caesar's standard room rates hover in the upper $100's to lower $200's most of the time, so you'll end up with an easy 1 cent or more in value. Just be sure to keep your eyes open for promotional pricing which is pretty common with some of their properties.
Also note that Wyndham Points cannot be used to pay the per-night resort fees that Caesars Entertainment properties charge. This has no bearing on the point value though since it's not included in the price listed on the search results page.
Wyndham Vacation Clubs
Redeeming your Wyndham Points at Wyndham Vacation Club properties will give you around 1 cent in value. These properties consist of the following destination brands:
- Club Wyndham
- Worldmark by Wyndham
- Shell Vacations Club
When searching on the Wyndham site, these brands will show up in the search results as normal. You can use the brand filter option to limit the list to just showing the Wyndham Vacation Club brand.
It doesn't require much effort to get good value out of these hotels, but the hard part will be finding award availability, especially in the more popular locations such as Hawaii and Las Vegas.
Even if you get slightly under 1 cent in value booking a Wyndham Vacation Club property, it's usually still a lot better than your standard properties since you'll have access to extra conveniences that comes with these condo-like resorts such as kitchens, separate living areas, pools, and lazy rivers.
Wyndham Vacation Rentals
You can use your Wyndham Points towards vacation rentals via Vacasa. These consists of unique homes and condo-style resorts across the globe that are great for those looking to enjoy the luxuries of a home when away from home. This is also a great option for group vacations.
You will need to call in to Wyndham directly in order to redeem your points for Wyndham Vacation Rentals.
Wyndham Points can be used to book properties at unique cottages in the UK, Ireland, France, and Italy with Cottages.com. You'll need to call in to book these properties using your points.
Wyndham Points can be redeem at Landal GreenParks properties. These consist of bungalow parks in the heart of nature located in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Denmark, England, and Hungary. You'll need to call in to book these properties using your points.
Point transfers to partners: 0.2 cents to 0.4 cents per point.
Wyndham Rewards Points can be transferred to a handful of travel partners at a rate of 6,000 Wyndham Points for 1,200 points or miles with the only exception being Caesars Entertainment which is 1,000 points for 1,000 points.
Converting points to airline miles isn't the best use of Wyndham Rewards Points, but it can be worth it if you're a few miles short of a redemption and need to top off your frequent flyer account.
Gift cards: 0.33 cents to 0.37 cents per point.
Wyndham Points can be redeemed for gift cards with over 100 different retailers starting at 7,500 points for a $25 gift card. The denominations offered for each retailer will vary, but most are in your standard $25, $50, and $100 denominations.
The only gift card that does not fall in line with the redemptions above is the Restaurant.com gift card which offers 1.13 cents in value due to costing 2,200 points for a $25 gift card.
Merchandise: 0.2 cents per point.
You can use your Wyndham Points to purchase merchandise which includes brand name items ranging from coffee makers and handbags to chairs and Apple products. The value of your points will vary depending on what you're going for.
When testing various items, I got an average value of around 0.2 cents per point. That's not to say that there aren't some hidden gems buried in the many items available.
Tours & Activities: value varies.
Wyndham Points can be used to book various tours and activities around the world. This includes live entertainment, outdoor adventures, treasure hunts, and more. The value you get out of these type of redemptions will vary.
Maintenance Fees: 0.5 cents per point.
Wyndham owners can apply Wyndham Points to cover payment of maintenance fees, RCI exchange fees and more. Redemptions start at 10,000 points for a $50 credit for:
- Club Wyndham Plus Assessment Fees
- Worldmark by Wyndham Dues, for TravelShare Members
- RCI Domestic or International Exchange Fee - Club Wyndham
- RCI Domestic or International Exchange Fee - WorldMark by Wyndham
- Shell Vacation Club Maintenance Fees
- Vacation Sidekick Annual Dues ($59.95 credit)
Tickets & Experiences: value varies.
Wyndham Rewards points can be redeemed for Minor League Baseball tickets and experiences through the Wyndham Rewards Shop portal. Experiences includes the ability to throw out a first pitch, make the "Play Ball" announcement, and much more.
Charitable Donations: unknown value.
Wyndham Points can be donated to more than 10 different charities starting at 500 points. This is the lowest redemption value available for Wyndham Points.
