The best value of Wyndham Points come from redeeming them at Wyndham Vacation Club and Caesars Entertainment properties. This will give you an between 0.8 and 1 cent per point on average meaning that 10,000 points would have a rough cash value of $80 to $100.

How to quickly earn Wyndham points

The easiest way to earn lots of Wyndham Rewards points is through intro bonuses and spending across Wyndham credit cards and credit cards offered by transfer partners.

Capital One Rewards credit cards

Capital One Venture Miles and Capital One Spark Miles can both be transferred to Wyndham Rewards at a 1:1 ratio. This means transferring 1,000 Venture Miles or Spark Miles to your Wyndham account will give you 1,000 Wyndham Rewards Points.

Miles earned with Capital One's credit cards can also be redeemed for 1 cent each towards travel purchases which gives you a good amount of flexibility when it comes to redeeming your rewards.

For example, 75,000 Venture Miles could be converted to 75,000 Wyndham Rewards points, redeemed for $750 towards purchases with Wyndham, or be put towards any other travel expenses such as airfare, parking, car rentals, and more.

Another big plus is that Capital One Cards earn a flat-rate across all purchases meaning there's no bonus categories to worry about. These cards also feature no foreign transaction fees which means you can earn miles on purchases worldwide.

Citi offers a good handful of credit cards that earn ThankYou Rewards Points, but only the Citi Premier Card allows you to transfer those points to Citi's full list of partners including Wyndham.

Thankfully, the Citi Premier Card is one of the best travel cards in the market thanks to it's high, uncapped 3X earnings across popular everyday categories and travel.

How much are Wyndham points worth?

The Point Calculator values Wyndham Rewards Points between 0.8 and 1 cent each on average meaning that 10,000 points has a cash value of $80 to $100 when used towards free nights.

Redemption Point Value (in cents)

Wyndham maintenance fees 0.5
Gift cards 0.33 - 0.37
Merchandise 0.2

Redeeming points for free nights

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.

Wyndham Redemption Cost
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.

Caesars Entertainment

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.

las vegas harrah cash cost las vegas harrah points cost

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 Resorts

Redeeming your Wyndham Points at Wyndham Vacation Resort properties will give you around 1 cent in value. These properties consist of the following destination brands:

  • Club Wyndham
  • Worldmark
  • Shell Vacations Club
  • Margaritaville Vacation 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 Resorts 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 Resorts 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.

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.

Cottages.com

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.

Landal GreenParks

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.

Transferring points to partners

Wyndham Rewards Points can be transferred to over 10 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.

Other ways to redeem Wyndham points

Wyndham offers several other redemption options outside of booking free nights. Points can be used for gift cards, merchandise, tours & activities, and fuel discounts. You can also donate points to charity or use them towards owner maintenance fees.

All of these redemptions will typically give your points a value of 0.5 cents per point and lower.

Gift cards

Wyndham Points can be redeemed for gift cards with over 100 different retailers for 0.33 to 0.37 cents in value. The higher the denomination, the more value you'll get out of your Wyndham Points.

The denominations offered for each retailer will vary, but most are in your standard $25, $50, and $100 denominations. The table below lists the value you'll get out of these redemptions.

Denomination Points Needed Value
$25 7,500 0.33 Cents
$50 14,000 0.35 Cents
$100 27,000 0.37 Cents

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

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

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

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)

Redeem for cash and more with Bakkt

With Bakkt, you can turn your Wyndham Points into cash or use your points to pay for everyday purchases online or anywhere Apple Pay and Google Pay are accepted.

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.
