A few months ago Bakkt launched a promotion with Wyndham Rewards that offered the opportunity to earn a net 2,900 Wyndham Rewards points for free.

They’ve now partnered with Choice Privileges to run another promotion that can earn you some free hotel points – possibly.

Quick Thoughts

That Bakkt/Wyndham promotion was due to end last month, but it got extended and so you can still take advantage of that offer if you’d missed out on it originally.

In fact, for many people it might be better to do that offer first before doing this Choice Privileges offer. The Wyndham offer gives you up to 2,900 points with very little effort whereas this Choice partnership offers a maximum of 1,250 bonus points, but in reality will only be 500 points for most people.

That’s if you even get the 500 bonus points from the first part of this Choice Privileges promotion in the first place. I did that Bakkt/Wyndham offer in December and both sets of bonus points were credited almost immediately. I then linked my Choice account to Bakkt about 30 minutes ago but the 500 bonus points haven’t shown up yet. That makes me wonder if these Bakkt promotions are only available for new users despite the terms not stating that’s the case. It might just be that Wyndham points are credited instantly and Choice points take a little longer to come through, so hopefully I earn this set of bonus points too. In case you can only receive bonus points from one program, earning 2,900 Wyndham Rewards points will be preferable to earning only 500 Choice points.

That’s because for most people that’ll be all you’ll earn from this Choice partnership. There are 750 additional bonus points on offer for converting Choice points to cash, but that’s not worth it. For the Wyndham promotion it was worth it because you only had to redeem 100 Wyndham Rewards points to earn 2,000 bonus points. With Choice though, the conversion options are far worse. You can only convert points in increments of 8,000 points, with each set of 8,000 points being worth $25. That’s a redemption value of 0.31cpp which is poor value for Choice points, with the 750 bonus points you should earn not making up much for that.

What’s particularly strange is that after linking my Choice account, Bakkt sent me an email congratulating me for linking my Wyndham account and stating that I’d be receiving 1,000 bonus Wyndham Rewards points. My guess is that they didn’t set up their automated emails correctly and perhaps copied and pasted the same email template that they used for Wyndham customers for Choice customers too. That email states that I’ll be able to view my updated Wyndham Rewards points balance in the app in the next 24 hours, but perhaps that means my missing 500 Choice points will be showing up instead by tomorrow. What would be nice is if they accidentally credited 1,000 Wyndham Rewards points instead as I’d prefer that as an alternative.
