Fast forward to yesterday when my Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card statement closed. On the statement, it showed that I received 20,000 bonus Marriott Rewards Points from “Bonus on Premier Plus Upgrade” and an additional 10,000 bonus Marriott Rewards Points as a “Courtesy Adjustment.” I also earned 20,000 Marriott Rewards Points from a referral (thank you whoever you are), but let’s ignore that in this post.
During our trip to New Zealand, we spent four nights at the Holiday Inn Rotorua. I chose this hotel because I could expect a consistent experience, and the price was in line with other properties in the area. Rooms are available for 20,000 IHG points per night, but I chose to pay cash (since our rate was about $94 USD/night including tax, using points would have gotten a value of 0.47 cents per point, which is below average even without considering the points we earned on the stay.)
Good afternoon everyone. Yesterday, it was announced that Wyndham Rewards and La Quinta Returns were allowing status matches and points transfers between both programs. This is great news if you have status or points in one program and want to get status or move points over to the other program.
Since I recently signed up for the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Visa Credit Card and received the 45,000 point sign up bonus, I have a lot of Wyndham Rewards points. I do have a few La Quinta points that I would like to transfer over to my Wyndham Rewards account. In this post, I will show you how to move points between Wyndham Rewards and La Quinta Returns and how to status match from one program to the other.
In this month’s updates, there are some major and minor changes. I reviewed the changes to my American Express Blue Cash Everyday Credit Card and there are some changes that affect cash back credit cards. I also reviewed the changes to my American Express EveryDay Credit Card that earns Membership Rewards Points, and there are some changes there too. Lastly, some changes affect all types of credit cards. There is a lot to cover, so I will try to bold the most important stuff.
