Can you earn points by reserving for someone else? YOU CAN NOW ON WYNDHAM!
The questions has been asked a million times. “Can I earn points for booking someone else’s room?” Until now, I’ve been able to find no other way. I occasionally book rooms for people who don’t travel much and don’t care to get into the points game. Now I have finally found a way to earn points for this.
As you can see, Wyndham will allow you to earn points while booking for someone else. I booked for someone without knowing this and I noticed some unexpected points, so I looked further.
I have Wyndham Diamond Status through matching my Founder’s Card Total Rewards Diamond Status so each dollar gains me 10 points.
I booked a room in North Dakota for a total of $340 (before taxes since that doesn’t count) which earned me 3,400 Wyndham points! That’s pretty solid. Wyndham will allow you to book a room at ANY Wyndham property in the world, including vacation rentals, and their Cottages.com program. I just learned about this Cottages program so there will be more info to come on that one. It’s a fantastic deal. You can also book any Caesars property with the same 15,000 points. That makes for redemptions that can be over .02 (HUGE REDEMPTION UPDATE ON THIS NUMBER!) per point during certain times of the year!
