Wyndham eases Rewards requirements

Wyndham is relaxing requirements for Wyndham Rewards participants to earn member levels (or status) in 2020, reducing the number of nights members need to stay by 40 percent.

The relaxed requirements build on Wyndham’s earlier efforts like extending the expiration of any previously earned member levels through the end of 2021 and pausing points expiration through Sept. 30. They also complement Wyndham’s recently unveiled summer promotion, which offers members 2,000 Wyndham Rewards bonus points with every qualified stay, up to a maximum of 10,000 points over five stays.

Wyndham Rewards members will unlock Gold membership status when they stay three qualifying nights, Platinum when they stay nine qualifying nights and Diamond when they stay 24 qualifying nights. Only stays in 2020 will count toward the new requirements, including those from earlier this year, which will be retroactively applied. Member level benefits vary by level and range from perks like late check-out, preferred rooms and points accelerators to suite upgrades, welcome amenities and more.
