Quick Thoughts

This is an easy win. I did this previously, when the bonus was 3,000 points and it only took me a few minutes to earn a net 2,900 Wyndham Rewards points. After downloading the Bakkt app it only took a couple of minutes to register and then link my Wyndham account.

The 1,000 bonus points from that first step showed up straight away. I later redeemed 100 of those points for $0.35, at which point the 2,000 bonus points from the second step showed up.

Bakkt Wyndham points credited

Earning 2,900 net points + $0.35 for a few minutes of work was worth it to me even though I don’t anticipate using the Bakkt app again in the future.

Added the app, connected my Wyndham account successfully. I click on “convert” and declined to add bank account. But it does not list Wyndham in the convert account list, it only offers to add Choice Hotels to my Bakkt account. Suggestions?

Just got 3,650 net points like others have mentioned, but I got an error on the app when trying to link up my Wyndham account. I turned off WiFi and it worked using mobile data.


Just tried it and they dropped 3750 points into my Wyndham account (for a net of 3650)… not sure why it’s more than advertised but hey, who am I to complain? 🙂




I got it, too. They credited my Wyndham account 1000, 750, 1500 and 500, and I redeemed 100 points to trigger at least one of these credits. I guess even folks who aren’t active in Wyndham Rewards would earn enough points in this promo to earn a discounted room in the “Go Fast” category. FWIW, the process was pretty easy and the points credited immediately.


So if we did they when they ran the promo for 3000 we are not eligible for this promo?


FYI landing page was updated and looks like deal is going to be extended again, but now up to 3500 points (net 3400 after converting 100). New deal expires March 31 per the landing page in the link above


Thanks Stephen. Still worked for me in creating a new WR account and Bakkt account and converting to get the 2900 WR pts, as of 3PM PST.

Rebecca Meredith

Nice!! Thanks – this was so easy 🙂

Hey Stephen. Got the 1000 Wyndham points immediately. Just wondering if you keep a separate (and small balanced) checking account for things like this? Hesitant to give my “real” BOA account and was wondering how you handle this? Thanks!

Jan W

I must be missing something. How did you fund the 35 cents?


Thanks–easily done in 5 min. Big ? is, what can I do with 2900 Wyndham points? i had 0 points to begin with and now have 2900. I am a Diamond Member (thanks to you all!). Seems like I’d need to add more points to be able to utilize it for anything.

Easy to add more points by earning with the Wyndham earner credit cards or transfer from Capital One Venture cards. Redeem for Vacasa or Viva all-inclusive or Wydham hotel nights.

Art Leyenberger

Wow! That was easy. Thx for the tip.


seriously easy, plus immediately posted to my wyndham acct


Guessing this is a one time deal? Did this in Dec 21.

Deal has been renewed to Mar 22

Trying to take advantage last minute but not succeeding. Was able to sign up but when trying to make the 100 conversion receiving “Transaction Denied”, anyone had similar issue and found a solution?



Ever have any luck? I’m getting that error message now as well.

Hen Feder

They asked me for a bunch of documents and it was the last day of the promotion, so I just gave up.


At first I couldn’t get past the verify challenge, but by disconnecting from the wifi, I was finally able to create an account. I was easily able to link my Wyndham account and got my 1000. But soon after, my account was inexplicably locked. So I had to upload photos of my ID and a selfie. Now I have to wait 5-7 business days to do step two. I understand this is a financial institution, so they need to be careful. And I was glad to get some free Wyndham points. Still, turned out to be more effort than I was expecting. Of course.

I had the same issue, except mine got locked before I could even register for the Wyndham promo. Frustrating.

I can’t figure out how to redeem 100 points. It asks for a 16 digit cash code… How did others do this?

Captain Greg

Thanks Stephen!!


thx for the insight, i nearly bought a gift card thinking that was the ‘conversion’


I was locked out for security reasons immediately after providing a password. The flow went:
Phone, MFA, enter name/address, provide user name, provide password. Maybe because I used a Google Voice. Oh well.


Tricky app to navigate. You have to go into your linked Wyndahm account area and there is a “covert” button. All the other convert buttons don’t work.


That was easy-Now I need to research the Wyndham program to see how useful it might be to me.


I have download Bakkt 5 weeks ago for Choice points. 1k choice points did not post yet. Today I have added Wyndham and got 3k in minutes. Interesting if you can do it from the same app for different Wyndham accounts.

Tonei Glavinic

I can’t sign up for the Bakkt app – have tried different phone numbers but I get a weird CAPTCHA challenge and then an error message reading “Arkose verify failure”. I think this must have happened a while ago too because I already had bakkt downloaded on my phone.


Try to disconnect from your wifi and to use only cell phone network.


I did this last night. The 1k points appeared instantly, the 2k took a few minutes but when I check this morning they were in the account.

Completed my first Vacasa stay this weekend on Wyndham points. Took the family to a ski resort, had a 1br cabin with private hot tub for 2 nights for 27k total. It was sick. Have 2 more ski weekends lined up this winter through vacasa.


Hi Tom. Please share the vacasa cabins you booked. I’m always looking for a great deal. Thanks again.


I don’t know what I just signed up for but it worked. Took me like 5 minutes.


Nice! Worked great to add on to 2000 Wyndham points I got from a previous promotion. I will sacrifice the .35 rather than giving Bakkt my banking info.


You do not have to give them your banking info. You can convert the 100 points to 35c and leave that 35c in bakkt. In fact that’s what happens anyway even if you do give them your bank info because apparently you need $10 to cash out.


That’s what I meant. I will just abandon the .35 and leave it in Bakkt. I didn’t realize you needed $10 to cash out, so it’s a non-issue anyway.
