Caesars Wyndham Transfer

Caesars Wyndham Transfer

I don’t gamble in the Vegas sense, but I find Caesars Rewards points useful enough.  In fact, the wrinkles between Wyndham and Caesars lead me to transfer points between the two programs more than any other.  I cash out my bank points and rarely transfer them to travel partners.  It’s been so long, I can’t remember the last time I transferred.  Since I’m cashing out bank points, I couldn’t care less about how long alternative transfers take to travel partners.  But with the Caesars Wyndham transfer option, I care. Here’s why I do and the wrinkles I’ve recently experienced.

Caesars Wyndham Transfer – Why To Care

Wyndham Rewards points have perhaps the most unpleasant expiration policy of all hotel currencies.  Points expire after 18 months of inactivity (bummer, but fairly avoidable) and four years after they were earned (eww).  But to an extent, Wyndham points hoarders have an out.

Long story short, transferring Wyndham points to Caesars 1:1 then back to Wyndham refreshes the four year expiration timeframe.  But there’s a limit.  Members can transfer up to 60k points annually.  Periodically, the programs temporarily elevate that limit to 100k.

Another reason I like to transfer from Wyndham to Caesars is I prefer to redeem points for room rates and incidentals (including dining) at Caesars properties at one cent per point (actually a tad over).  Vacasa lovers enjoy redeeming for higher cpp valuations, but my family and I aren’t Vacasa/AirBnB/etc people.

Wyndham to Caesars

Wyndham advises that transfers to Caesars take 7 to 14 days.  In reality, I’ve seen points show up within a few days and most always within a week and a half.  Our last transfer this month took four days.  Unfortunately, there’s no small amount you can try to test the process.  Point transfers start at 10k and must be done in the same increments (technically, ordering multiple quantities of 10k).  Points are immediately deducted when a Wyndham member initiates the transfer.

Caesars to Wyndham

Want to transfer Caesars Rewards credits to Wyndham Rewards points?  Buckle up.  Caesars Rewards states that transfers can take up to six to eight weeks.  The minimum transfer amount is 5k, so testing isn’t as risky going the other way.  Transfers must be in 5k increments.

There’s good news and bad news here.  The good news is my most recent transfer took about a month, well under the six to eight week timeframe.  The bad news is that’s still a freaking month!  That’s a not insignificant amount of time since fully realizing a reward is impossible in the interim.

Another Wrinkle

The Caesars website and app are remarkably clunky in my experience.  Oddly and inexplicably, my Caesars Rewards credit balances have simultaneously differed on the website and the app.  Also, I haven’t received confirmation emails related to these transfers in the past.  Instead, I’ve received brief website confirmations after the submissions, which I screenshot.  I’d like a more reliable, transparent process, but perhaps that’s just picky.

Caesars Wyndham Transfer


Long story short, the process still works.  Ultimately, we’ve always received the points transfers on each end.  Still, those points are floating in space for an extended time.  So with this less than optimal setup, how do I mitigate my risk?  I tend to redeem the minimum amount per transfer and wait for the points to show up before I start the process again.  To complement this process, I proactively transfer points earlier in the year.  With a 60k annual limit and an early start, I can still easily transfer the maximum to meet my needs throughout the year.  Complicating matters is the timing of the temporary boosts to 100k.  After this appeared late last year, I pushed through a lot more than normal in one transaction, simply to maximize that limit.

Still, this isn’t a huge risk for us.  We aren’t exactly using a ton of points at Wyndham properties, anyway.  Nonetheless, we’ll protect ourselves where we can.  How has your Caesars Wyndham transfer experience been?

  1. In my experience, it’s only possible to execute one transfer back from Caesars to Wyndham per year. After that, they won’t budge.

  2. FYI for those that don’t know, Caesars points expire after 6 months of no activity. I’m Diamond Plus and have around $1300 worth of points currently in my account. From gambling. If you don’t earn at least 1 tier credit in 6 months your reward credits expire. Not sure about other things that may extend the time but I never go more than a couple of months (at the most) between casino trips. Just don’t transfer them and assume they will be there later

    • I use their Sportsbook app and assume that keeps my Caesars Diamond points alive. I don’t live near their casinos and people can probably bet small amounts a few times a year on a sporting event….but this is an assumption and would require legal sports betting in your state

  3. All of my Wyndham points expire in July 2025. Just did a 10,000 point transfer to Caesars. I will see how long the transfer process takes. Horseshoe Bossier City is my most visited Caesars casino. Maybe I see las vegas in my future.

  4. Initiated transfer from Caesar’s at the end of December. Points were deducted within a week and still haven’t shown up at Wyndham. I am trying to be patient but it’s absurd how bad this process is.

    • The points should instantly reflect in your Wyndham account when they’re removed from your Caesars account. I’d reach out to Caesars ASAP.

  5. I didn’t know about Wyndham’s hard expiration policy, so I just started the transfer of 60K of their points to Caesar’s. When the points arrive I might transfer them back to Wyndham, or maybe leave them in Caesar’s. Thank you for posting this information!
