The Penny-mile Free-night Wyndham Rewards Promotion Is Back and Even Better!

[Update (October 18, 2012): Offer terms have changed. Read today's update first. You might get lucky, but proceed at your own risk.]

It’s a wonderful day for all of us interested in earning more Wyndham points that can be transferred to your airlines of choice. Yes, the recently expired 16,000-bonus-point-per-stay Wyndham offer I first wrote about on August 14, 2012 is BACK and even BETTER!

This time around, you can earn ~54,000 Wyndham Rewards points for as little as $150. Those 54,000 points can be converted to ~21,600 traditional airline miles or ~16,200 Southwest Rapid Rewards points. Even if you don’t like airline miles or the Southwest Companion Pass, you will end up with enough points for three free nights at a midtown Manhattan hotel. Best of all, the confusing “must click through email” clause has been taken out of the fine print.

To earn the maximum number of Wyndham Rewards points, you should follow the three steps below:

1. Enroll in Wyndham Rewards if you don’t already have an account.
2. Register for promotion #1 (an extra 5,500 points for your 2nd stay).
3. Book and complete 3 separate stays at one of the 20 listed properties before November 26, 2012 to receive 48,000 bonus points (don’t forget to use your Chase Freedom card). [You have until December 31, 2012 for this promotion. All you lose is the 5,500 points in step 2 if you choose to book your stays after November 26, 2012.]

I wrote a follow-up update post to detail my own experimental experience. To get more details on how the promotion works and other tips and tricks, be sure to check out my original post, the update post, and reader comments on both posts. The list of 20 properties is exactly the same.

Lastly, here is a comparison of the fine print of the current promotion and the last one. Happy booking and best of luck!

    There’s a corporate code 8000000066 that gets 20% off. Do you know if it can be used with this promo? Thanks

      KoolFatKat, I believe this will be a qualifying rate. Thanks for sharing!
