The Unheralded Perks of the Wyndham Card
The bonus on the Wyndham card was recently increased to match the all time high of 45,000 points. That is enough points for 3 nights in one of their hotels. That is a great bonus that can bring you $750 plus in value in big cities like NYC etc. But that isn’t why I think the card is undervalued. It is their partnership with Total Rewards that makes this card compelling to me.
Total Rewards Partnership
I applied for this card for myself – (denied) – and my wife (approved!) earlier this week. It isn’t because I love Wyndham hotels, I haven’t stayed in one in over 10 years (RIP Crystal Palace Nassau). It is because I love their partnership with Total Rewards.
That is $300 in food and drinks at any Total Rewards casino per year. So you are able to get at least 1 cent per point out of Wyndham points. You can also book Total Rewards hotels, including Caesars Palace and Caesars Nobu! That is amazing!!!
Perks Of Total Rewards
The card comes with Wyndham Platinum status which you can then status match to Total Rewards Platinum status. This comes with some nice perks:
- 15% discount in gift shops
- Complimentary parking in Las Vegas and Atlantic City
- Complimentary stay at the Atlantis (2 nights, does not include resort or maid fees)
- 10% discount on Norwegian cruises
- Buy one get one free shows (select shows only)
Those are some big perks and would offset the annual fee after one trip to Vegas if you maxed out the value. The card would also pay for itself if you take a trip to the Atlantis!
This is a solid bonus that I think anyone who goes to Vegas, Atlantis, or any other Total Rewards casino should consider. The perks you get from the partnership are pretty great.
Even if you loathe Wyndham hotels this partnership makes it worth considering.
