Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday! I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 8 offers that end this month. Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you. Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind.

More Information about Points Expiration:
Although Wyndham Rewards points typically expire four (4) years after completion of the activity for which they were earned, in some cases, they can be forfeited earlier. One cause of early forfeiture is account inactivity, i.e., the failure to earn, redeem or transfer points, for a period of 18 consecutive months. For more information on the expiration and early forfeiture of Wyndham Rewards points, please visit www.wyndhamrewards.com/terms.
