With ZorkFest Las Vegas approaching (really hope you can join!), here’s an idea to keep in mind to save tremendously on Las Vegas hotels, especially during holidays, weekends, and peak summer travel.
Wyndham Rewards and Caesar’s Entertainment Total Rewards announced a partnership in 2017. With Wyndham’s new and improved Wyndham Rewards program, where all free nights are just 15,000 points per night, Las Vegas redemptions are something to keep in mind.
I just booked my Memorial Day Weekend stay in Las Vegas using Wyndham points. With rates in the $300-$450 range that weekend, redeeming 15,000 points per night was a fantastic value.
Unfortunately, the only bad news is that resort fees are still applicable for Las Vegas properties on “Go Free Awards”, but YMMV asking the property to waive them at checkout.
Below is an example of two Total Rewards properties available using just 15,000 Wyndham Rewards points per night on Sunday May 27. Other desirable properties on the Las Vegas strip include Paris Las Vegas, The LINQ, and Planet Hollywood.
New Promotion: Stay Twice, Earn a Free Night (15K points) – Cheap and Easy Way to Free Nights
Wyndham currently has a great promotion happening now through June 30th (stays must be completed by July 1), where members can earn 15,000 bonus points, in addition to any points normally earned, after completing two separate stays at any Wyndham Rewards hotel.
With Wyndham stays (aka Travelodge) costing as low as $27-35 in some US cities, I’d consider this promotion worth mattress-running for, especially for future Las Vegas stays. You could essentially “stay” twice for less than $75 total to generate the 15,000 bonus points.
Registration is required in advance of first stay.
Additionally, Wyndham Rewards members can now save 10% off the best available rate (does not require pre-payment) at all Wyndham Rewards hotels globally when they book direct, through a preferred corporate travel partner or an approved travel agent. This savings is applicable to the stays needed for the promotion to earn 15,000 bonus points.
Vegas hotels can be expensive during the high season, and it’s nice to know that there are free night options available. During my last visit to Las Vegas, I was able to use my annual free night from my IHG Rewards MasterCard for a free night at the Palazzo. It’s good to know that Wyndham points can be another fantastic alternative.
