I got the Wyndham Rewards card recently and the bonus should be posting any day now. I’ve already noticed that beginning in January, almost all higher end hotels will not be available for “Go Free” award nights.
That is a bummer because I wanted to book now for February. On FlyerTalk, they do say that the all-inclusive hotels won’t be participating (as some were to begin with).
I’ve also noticed that a lot of their hotels are not participating in the “Go Fast” program. If all you can use your free nights for are low end hotels, who will want the card?
A few months ago, Wyndham made changes to its rewards program. They announced all hotels could be booked for 15,000 Wyndham points.
But there’s been some confusion surrounding this new program.
Are the Wyndham Rewards Wyzard and His New Rewards Program Not as Magical as They 1st Appeared?
I’ve written about how to take a Disney vacation for cheap using miles and points. And how you can get airfare and a 5-night stay at Disney hotels Dolphin and Swan from just 2 credit cards!
There are so many hotels near Walt Disney World where you can stay using points or weekend night certificates. So how do you choose?
You Can Stay at the Disney Swan Hotel Using Starwood Points, but There Are LOTS of Other Great Options Near Walt Disney World!
I checked TripAdvisor for the best hotels close to Walt Disney World. Here are some top picks you can book with hotel points!

There are some hotel and airline chains in which you can transfer points/miles to points/miles and vice versa for 1:1 or 1:2 or better ratio.
What site can I go to to know what hotel or airline accepts transferred points/miles from other hotels or airlines?
Great question! You can NOT transfer airline miles from 1 airline to another. And you can NOT transfer hotel points between hotel programs. But it is possible to transfer hotel points to airline miles.
Let’s 1st look at transferring hotel points to airline miles. And later we can take a look at transferring airline miles to hotel points.
You Can Transfer Hotel Points to Airline Miles. But Should You?
I’ll explain how to do it. And if it’s ever a good idea to make the transfer!

I’m totally new to miles. My wife and I would like to go to Hawaii. I have enough American Airlines miles to get us there, but need help with hotels.
Where should I start? What’s a good chain or card to collect miles on for Hawaii?
Planning a trip to Hawaii is very exciting, Brian! Congratulations on earning the American Airlines miles to get there!
