Update on Wyndham 16,000 Bonus Points

Share with a friend

Here’s an update on Wyndham 16,000 bonus points offer: after I posted and tweeted about the Wyndham 16,000 bonus point offer a few days ago, Wyndham tweeted back and said that the offer is targeted.

Update on Wyndham 16,000 bonus points offer:

  • The offer is targeted to select Wyndham members
  • You must have received a direct mail offer
  • Only those who received the offer will receive bonus points

Unfortunately, the terms and conditions on the Wyndham website do not specify that the bonus point offer is targeted.

I’m still waiting to hear back from Wyndham to see if those who were emailed the original 16,000 bonus points offer this summer, but did not take advantage of that offer, would be able to take advantage of it now.

So if you were planning on staying a one of the new 20 Wyndham properties and did not receive the direct mail solicitation, you might not receive the bonus points.

I say might because there has been some posting that the bonus points were awarded but given that it’s subject to the whims of whatever customer service representative you receive, it’s a crap shoot.

Hopefully you hadn’t made any nonrefundable prepaid reservations.
