Wyndham Adds La Quinta to Loyalty Program

PARSIPPANY, NJ—Wyndham Rewards has added new program benefits for its more than 70 million enrolled members around the globe, including the introduction of special perks designed exclusively for active and retired U.S. and Canadian military members and their spouses—all while welcoming more than 900 La Quinta hotels to the program’s portfolio.

Starting today, Wyndham Rewards members can begin taking advantage of the following:

A Faster Way to Free Nights

With the introduction of three distinct redemptions tiers, free nights (go free) now start at just 7,500 points per bedroom per night (half their previous redemption cost) at nearly 3,000 hotels while points + cash award nights (go fast) now start at just 1,500 points per bedroom per night, plus some cash.

New Places to Stay

Through the addition of the La Quinta brand, Wyndham Rewards members now have more than 900 new hotels where they can earn and redeem Wyndham Rewards points, including hotels in key destinations like Dallas, Miami, San Francisco, Seattle and Toronto, to name just a few.

New Benefits for Military Members

U.S. and Canadian military members (active, reserve, veteran or retired status) and their spouses now receive a complimentary upgrade to Gold level membership along with 1,000 bonus points on their first qualifying night. These benefits are in addition to existing discounts of 12% or more off the best available rate at participating Wyndham Rewards hotels. (Wyndham Rewards membership is not required to take advantage of the discount.)

“We’re incredibly excited about what these enhancements mean for our members, as they’re a direct response to what they told us they value most,” said Eliot Hamlisch, SVP of worldwide loyalty and partnerships at Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “As champions of the everyday traveler, our goal is to deliver a simple, generous program that offers rich, meaningful rewards alongside one of the largest, most diverse redemption portfolios in the world.”

Earn on Everyday Purchases, Redeem for Incredible Rewards

In addition to the above benefits, members can take advantage of new and expanded partners making it easier than ever to earn and redeem points outside of hotel stays.
