USA TODAY Readers Name Wyndham Rewards Best Hotel Loyalty Program for Fourth Consecutive Year

Refreshed Wyndham Rewards Earner Card ranked top travel and hotel co-branded credit card

PARSIPPANY, N.J. (October 8, 2021) – For the fourth consecutive year, Wyndham Rewards®, the world’s most generous rewards program spanning more than 50,000 hotels, vacation club resorts and vacation rentals worldwide, has been named the best hotel loyalty program in this year’s USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards. Complementing the win, the newly refreshed Wyndham Rewards Earner® Card was named the best travel and hotel co-branded credit card.

The rankings mark yet another top ranking for Wyndham Rewards this year. In August, the program was named the number one hotel rewards program by U.S. News & World Report while in May, WalletHub named the program its Best Hotel Rewards Program for a sixth consecutive year. Nominees in the USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards are compiled by a panel of industry experts, and winners are chosen based on daily voting from USA TODAY readers over a four-week period.

“We created Wyndham Rewards to celebrate and champion the everyday traveler,” said Lisa Checchio, chief marketing officer, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “To have both Wyndham Rewards and our Wyndham Rewards Earner Card be voted number one by readers of USA TODAY is yet another vote of confidence that no other program offers travelers more value, more flexibility or more places to redeem their rewards. Thank you to our 89 million enrolled members, our hotels owners and our strategic partners for making this possible.”

Wyndham Rewards is the only hotel loyalty program to offer members a guaranteed 1,000 points with every qualified stay. Free nights start at just 7,500 points per night, while discounted nights start at 1,500 points plus some cash. The program’s Member Levels (status), which are among the most attainable in travel, allow members to unlock great benefits like a preferred room, late checkout and accelerated earning and more.

Last year, Wyndham Rewards unveiled an updated credit card suite featuring the Wyndham Rewards Earner Card, the Wyndham Rewards Earner Plus Card and the Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Card, the first Wyndham credit card created specifically for small businesses. All three cards amplify rewards earned on the road, as well as everyday purchases, with up to 8x earn on gas purchases and Wyndham hotel stays; up to 5x earn on marketing, advertising and utility purchases (Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Card only); and up to 4x earn on restaurant and grocery purchases.

Forbes Advisor named the Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Card to two of its “Best of 2021” lists, declaring the card “Best for Road Warriors.” Meanwhile, the Wyndham Rewards Earner Card was named “Best for Road Trips” on the publication’s list of “Best Hotel Rewards Credit Cards.”

Wyndham and its hotels continue to offer flexible booking policies, enhanced health and safety protocols through Count on Us®, and mobile check-in and checkout through Wyndham’s award-winning mobile app. In addition, Wyndham Rewards members continue to enjoy an extension of current member benefits and paused points expiration through the end of this year.
