Hotel Buy Points Promos Ending Soon: Choice, Hyatt, Radisson, IHG, La Quinta & Hilton

Good morning everyone.  Since Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner, several hotels are running buy points promos now.  I wrote about 7 airline buy miles / points promos yesterday and I have all the latest offers on my Buy Miles & Points Page.  Always check the math to make sure that buying points makes sense for you.  Do not buy points speculatively unless you have a use in mind.  With that said, here are the 6 promos that are ending soon. First up, Choice Hotels is offering a 25% discount when you purchase Choice Privileges points.  This offer expires on November 26.

When Will the 6,000 Wyndham Rewards Anniversary Points Post to My Account?

Good morning everyone.  I had a great time at the Chicago Seminars travel conference and enjoyed meeting several TWG readers over the weekend.  It is always great to put names to faces.  In credit card news, my $75 annual fee posted to my Barclays Wyndham Rewards Credit Card on August 31.  One of the main reasons (or only reasons) to keep the credit card is the 6,000 anniversary points.  I was anxious for the 6,000 anniversary points to post to my Wyndham Rewards account, but the points posted slower than I expected.

My Barclays Credit Card Retention / Targeted Spending Offers for September 2018 [Letters Added]

Updated 8PM PT on 9/18/18: I just received the confirmation letters from Barclays and added both letters to this post.

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  Last week, I noticed that my $75 annual fee posted on my Barclays Wyndham Rewards Credit Card.  I signed up for this credit card during my September 2017 App-O-Rama and received 45,000 Wyndham Rewards Points as a welcome bonus (enough for 3 free nights, which I still haven’t used yet).  I wrote a similar post about my Barclays Credit Card Targeted / Spending Offers for May 2018.  In today’s post, I will share my retention / targeted spending offers on my 3 Barclays credit cards.

Convert 20,000 JetBlue TrueBlue Points into a Free Wyndham Rewards Hotel Night (15,000 Points)

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  A few days ago, I showed you how to status match and transfer points between Wyndham Rewards and La Quinta Returns.  But what if you wanted to rack up Wyndham Rewards Points for free nights at any Wyndham hotel (including all-inclusive hotels)?  Wyndham Hotels are not the nicest hotels in the world and paid rates can often be very cheap, but every now and then, paid rates can be extremely expensive.  For example, Travel at One Mile At A Time found a Wyndham Hotel that was charging $1,500+ for a 1 night stay during the big eclipse last year.  Granted, that is very extreme, but I am sure you can find some hotels charging $300+ a night if you looked hard enough.

How do I get more Wyndham Rewards Points?

Wyndham does sell points, but you can only buy 10,000 points per year…

Step by Step Guide for Wyndham Rewards to/from La Quinta Returns Status Matches & Points Transfers

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.
