I woke up to a great announcement this morning about how La Quinta Returns members and Wyndham Rewards members can now enjoy a 1:1 point transfer and complimentary status match between the two programs.
In case you missed it, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts finalized its purchase of La Quinta late last week, so this is the first step as La Quinta its integrated into the Wyndham family.
I’m particularly excited to now have the ability to convert my La Quinta points into Wyndham points as I never had a chance to previously use them during my travels.
A few years back, Wyndham had made some positive improvements to the Wyndham Rewards program, where all free nights are just 15,000 points per night. Additionally, you can use Wyndham Points at Total Rewards casino properties and status match all the way up to Wyndham Rewards Diamond if you got in on the Total Rewards Tier match.
How To Instantly Transfer Points & Status Match Between Programs
You can transfer points instantly between the two programs in increments of 1,000.

Similarly, La Quinta Returns Gold and Military Rewards Gold members may match to Wyndham Rewards Gold status, while La Quinta Returns Elite and Military Rewards Elite members may match to Wyndham Rewards Platinum status.
I’m pleasantly surprised to be able to consolidate my La Quinta points into my Wyndham account, where I’ll have more use of them.
