Wyndham is offering an awesome status match opportunity for those who have status with another hotel program. With this match you’ll be given either Gold, Platinum, or Diamond status (based on your current status with the matched hotel program).With the match, you’ll receive your respective status for 90 days. Within those 90 days, if you stay at a Wyndham property on an eligible rate for either 7 nights for Platinum or 14 nights for Diamond, you will keep that status for the entire following year. For those matching to Gold, you’ll just receive that status for the following year regardless of how many nights you stay at a Wyndham property within the 90 days.
The matching opportunities include:
- Wyndham Rewards Gold status: Just have a loyalty account with any other hotel chain
- Wyndham Rewards Platinum status: Marriott Silver, Hilton Silver, Hyatt Discoverist or Explorist, IHG Gold, Radisson Silver, Choice Privileges Gold or Platinum
- Wyndham Rewards Diamond status: Marriott Gold or Platinum or Platinum Premier, Hilton Gold or Diamond, Choice Privileges Diamond, Best Western Diamond, Hyatt Globalist, IHG Platinum or Spire, Radisson Gold or Platinum
What is great about this promotion is that many times just having another hotels credit card can get you the status match. For example, those with the IHG credit card receive automatic Platinum status. With the Wyndham match, this will get you Wyndham Rewards Diamond status! Also, many of the Hilton credit cards come with Gold status. Another automatic match to Diamond status!
The main benefits of Gold status is the you’ll receive late checkout. For those who are able to receive Platinum status, you’ll also receive early check-in, bonus points, Caesars Entertainment Total Rewards status match, and Avis and Budget car rental upgrades. If you are fortunate enough to end up with Diamond status, you’ll receive suite upgrades (even on award stays), a welcome amenity, the the opportunity to gift Gold status to a friend (even though everyone will end up with Gold status with this promotion!). You can check out all the benefits of having status here.
While there is no set end date to this status match opportunity, I’d make sure to strategically request your status. It also could take 5-7 days for your match to process so do not wait until the last minute!
