A few weeks ago I wrote about the confluence of 2 different Wyndham promotions that would allow you to get 25,000 Wyndham points after only 2 (cheap) stays.
(READ MORE: 17,500 Wyndham points for 1 night stay (enough for a free night anywhere)
The 25,000 points was the confluence of 2 different promotions
- First, stay one time, get 10,000 points – this promotion seemed to be targeted but widely targeted
- Secondly, get 7500 points for staying at a Wyndham and paying with Masterpass – this could be repeated twice for 25,000 points total
Remember because of Wyndham’s lack of award chart – EVERY hotel costs only 15,000 points / night – even all-inclusive Caribbean resorts or New York City hotels that run for $400 / night – you can truly get some amazing value.
Of course, you can always just stay in a Super 8 like I did 😛 (READ MORE: True budget traveling – a tale of two Super 8s)
$5 off 5 different Wyndham brands
Here are coupons / promo codes for $5 off each night. They are each good for $5 off the “Best Available Rate”, and are grouped by brand
- Super 8 – $5 off/ night
- Knights Inn – $5 off/ night
- Howard Johnson – $5 off / night
- Microtel – $5 off / night
- Travelodge – $5 off / night
These promo codes are good through September 29th. Booking a night after clicking on one of these links may pay me a commission. Considering you can often find cheap hotels for ~$50 all in (depending on where you live), this can be a 10% or so savings
Remember that (unless you booked a non-refundable rate), if these coupons help you to get it cheaper than you did before, you can always cancel your original stay and rebook
Are you going for it? Did you already make your Wyndham stays?

“awesome” and “Wyndham” really don’t belong in the same sentence. So say you are willing to mattress run at a Knights Inn for say $50. Does a couple of these stays worth enduring for a nicer Wyndham property stay? Not in my opinion.
Sorry to be so negative as I do appreciate this blog. It’s just that Wyndham is not a great program to invest in for most travel hackers unless you drive long haul for a living, which would actually work out well for this program.
What???? No Days Inn Code? That’s it, I’m never commenting again!!
It would be interesting to see how the real travel hacker audience breaks down. I’ll bet not as many readers are primarily Hyatt and Hilton as you would be led to believe.
I’d bet Choice and Wyndham stays are more common than post/replies would indicate. Maybe throw in IHG and Club Carlson.
Keep in mind that even though you stay 2 nights in a row it only counts as 1 stay. You need at least 24 hours before you can book another stay at the hotel to have it count as day 2. Any suggestions would be helpful. I’m staying in greenville SC for 4 days, what is the best strategy to book rooms to get the most points and savings.
I just stayed in Anderson at the Microtel. I booked a night, then the next night took advantage of the Marriott infinite points promo, then back to Microtel.
What is masterpass
It’s a payment network like Paypal. More details in the original (linked) post
I will never stay to Wyndham Hotels again you guys don’t care about your customers don’t contact me via email with this kind of garbage
I hear you. The Knights Inn, Howard Johnsons and Microtels have alot to be desired, we stayed at The Galvan Hotel in Galveston 4 nts, $160 including taxes a night, for 60k pts saving over $600. In October, we’ll be staying at Beacon Hill Boston for 15k pts saving $250. Meanwhile leaving our vehicle back home at the Days Inn for each of these trips saving another $50. The program is good, just work it.
Wyndham has some all inclusive resorts. I stayed at the Viva Azteca in Playa del Carmen this July. It was not luxury, but not horrible either, and a decent price when using 15k pts for all drinks and food and right on the beach. Ramada, Baymont, and Microtel are usually decent for an inexpensive stay.
