The Wyndham Points Value Calculator will calculate the average cash value of your Wyndham Points based on the average redemption values listed in the table. You can enter any amount of points in the table.
Wyndham Award Stays Redemption Values
|Caesars Entertainment, Wyndham Vacation Club||$0 - $0|
|Wyndham Award Nights (go free)||$0 - $0|
|Wyndham Award Nights (go fast)||$0 - $0|
|Gift Cards||$0 - $0|
Wyndham Awards Nights
Wyndham properties are broken up into three different costs and are split up between go free Award stays and go fast Award stays which are stays using all Wyndham Points (go free) and stays using a mix of points plus cash (go fast).
|go free Costs||go fast Costs|
|7,500 Points||1,500 Points + Cash|
|15,000 Points||3,000 Points + Cash|
|30,000 Points||6,000 Points + Cash|
Using your Wyndham Points for a go free Award redemption will give you around 0.6 cents per point on average while booking a go fast Award redemption will give you an even lower average of around 0.45 cents per point.
If you're trying to get better value out of your points for a Wyndham go free booking, you can use the 'Dates Flexible?' option when you pull up the hotel's details page. This gives you a range of prices and will give you an idea of the cash cost across multiple days.
You can also get great value by aiming at popular vacation/travel locations. For example, you can book a 3-bedroom villa at the Magic Village Views Trademark Collection for 30,000 points per night.
The cost in cash of this hotel ranges in the upper $200s to lower $300s, but you'll also be charged taxes & fees along with a cleaning fee for the stay. This pushes the price up to give you an easy value of more than 1 cent per Wyndham Point.
Beach destinations can also give you good value for your points, especially during a good time of the year. The Wyndham Grand Cayman is a good example of easily being able to redeem your points for more than 1 cent in value.
You'll find that there's a few good redemptions out in the world when it comes to using your Wyndham Rewards Points at standard Wyndham properties for free nights, but it requires a lot of research and effort to find them.
You can redeem your Wyndham Rewards Points for free nights at Caesars Entertainment Properties starting at 15,000 Wyndham Points per night. It's very easy to get more than 1 cent in value booking stays at Caesars Entertainment properties, but it's also very easy to get a very, very bad redemption rate as well. This is due to the their rooms heavily fluctuating in price.
You don't want to use 15,000 Wyndham Rewards Points booking a room that would normally cost you $35 per night since that would give you the worst value in the history of redemptions. You'll want to aim for the days that normally cost the most. For Harrah's Las Vegas, this would be the weekends.
The easiest way to get the most out of you bookings at Caesars Entertainment properties is by using the flexible dates option. This gives you an idea of which days are worth using your Wyndham Rewards Points and which days are not. Again, be sure to avoid those days in which the hotel only costs a couple of dollars per night.
You'll also want to note that resort fees will apply when booking Caesars Entertainment hotels. This fee cannot be paid with points. The fee will range from $10 to $35 per day plus tax.
Wyndham Vacation Club
Wyndham Vacation Club brands consist of properties that makes you feel like you're at home. They typically include home conveniences like kitchens, multi bedrooms, separate living areas, pools, and more. Wyndham's Vacation Club brands consists of the following destinations brands:
- Club Wyndham
- Shell Vacations Club
- Margaritaville Vacation Club
These brands will display in search results as normal when booking through the wyndhamhotels.com website. You can use the brand filter 'Wyndham Vacation Clubs' to filter the selections to just these hotels.
Booking stays at Wyndham Vacation Club brands will typically give you more than 1 cent in value. Even if you fall slightly under 1 cent in value, these properties provide a lot more in terms of lodging than the standard Wyndham brands and the extra conveniences you'll have access to can make it worth the booking.
For example, Club Wyndham Resort at Avon in Avon, Colorado will cost you 15,000 Wyndham Points per night for a 1 bedroom presidential suite.
Looking at the cash price for a few dates in October the room prices range between $160 and $200 per night depending on the rate you book. This gives you more than 1 cent in value.
You can get even more value booking in November as it gets closer to Ski season which is when the price of this hotel starts to go up meaning you'll get more bang for your buck.
Other Destination Brands
You can redeem your Wyndham Rewards Points at the remaining Wyndham Destination Brand hotels which consists of:
These brands have their own booking portals and will require you to call in to use your Wyndham Rewards Points. The amount of Wyndham Points it costs to book these properties will vary.

Landal GreenPark properties consist of bungalow parks in the heart of nature located in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Denmark, England, and Hungary.
Wyndham Rewards Points can be used to redeem over 100 different types of gift cards will range between 0.33 and 0.37 cents per point based on the denomination. Gift cards are broken down into $25, $50, and $100 denominations which can be redeemed respectively for 7,500 points, 14,000 points, and 27,000 points. The higher the denomination, the better value you will get out of your gift card redemption.
Do note that the Restaurant gift certificate is the only gift card that does not follow suit. This gift card will give you 1.1 cents per point due to only costing 2,200 Wyndham Rewards Points.

Wyndham Rewards Points can be used to buy merchandise. This includes brand name items ranging from chairs and handbags to coffee makers and Apple products. The value of your points when redeemed for merchandise will vary depending on what you're going for, but I found most redemptions to give you around a value of 0.2 cents per point. This is a pretty low value, but that's to be expected when using rewards for merchandise just like any other points/miles program.
Merchandise redemptions is about the lowest you can go in terms of redeeming your Wyndham Points. If you're trying to empty your balance this could be a decent route to take, but I would recommend transferring your Wyndham Points to airline partners before going this route.
There's several other redemptions that you can use your Wyndham Rewards Points for. This includes redeeming points for Tours & Activities, discounts on gas through Marathon's Make It Count program, and donating to charity.
Tours & Activities
Within Tours & Activities you'll find your usual redemptions for outdoor adventures, tours, treasure hunts, and things of that nature.
Marathon Make It Count
Make It Count is Marathon's rewards program and it offers the ability to earn rewards with Marathon or with Wyndham, Southwest Airlines, and other program. Points earned with Marathon can be redeemed for CentsOff fuel awards, eGift cards and more.
Donate Points To Charity
Lastly, Wyndham Rewards Points can be donated to 15 different charities with all of them starting at 500 points which is the lowest redemption rate with Wyndham. Charities includes:
- Save the Children
- Fisher House
- Christel House
- Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation
- Armed Services YMCA
- Operation Homefront
- Team RWB
- Team Rubicon
- Clean the World Foundation
- Starlight Children's Cancer
- National Parks Conservation Association
- Hope For The Warriors
Wyndham Rewards Points can give you great value when redeemed at Wyndham Vacation Club properties and Caesars Entertainment properties. Redeem them for stays at Wyndham's standard properties is a whole different story.
The only other redemption option outside of the ones listed above is the ability to transfer your points. You can transfer Wyndham Points to airline, rail, and casino partners. With the exception of Caesars Rewards, you can transfer 6,000 Wyndham Points for 1,200 airline miles or rail points.
