Transfer up to 100K from Wyndham to Caesars (and why you might want to)

7

For almost a month now, Wyndham has had an increased limit for transfers from Wyndham Rewards to Caesars Rewards. While that part certainly isn’t news, we hadn’t reported on it and realized that we should flag it for readers who had missed it and provide a couple of scenarios where this transfer might be of interest.

The Caesar’s/Wyndham Match is back!

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Valid May 17, 2022 to September 5, 2022
  • 100K limit is cumulative annual limit (so if you had previously transferred from Wyndham to Caesars before the promotional period, those points count toward the 100K limit for 2022)

Why you might want to do this

Transferring from Wyndham Rewards to Caesars rewards doesn’t necessarily seem compelling on the surface, but there are several reasons why you might want to consider this:

  1. Save Wyndham points from expiration. Moving points from Wyndham to Caesars and then back from Caesars to Wyndham will sort of “renew” the expiration. This technique has been of limited usefulness in years past as the annual limit of 30K points is pretty low. However, the ability to move 100K is a nice increase.
  2. Get 1c per point in value toward Caesars stays. Caesars Rewards points can be used toward on property-spend at Caesars properties at a value of $0.01 per point (toward things like dining, lounge access, spa treatments, and hotel stays) or you can use them to book rooms online at a value of $0.01 per point. While Wyndham Rewards points have uses that yield greater potential value, $0.01 per point is still a reasonable enough redemption, particularly if you are a Wyndham Business card holder and you are earning a lot of your points at a rate of 8x at gas stations.
  3. Potentially combine points with someone else. This is a your mileage may vary situation, but you may be able to combine rewards points with another member by first moving your Wyndham points to Caesars. I have read some reports of Caesars Rewards members being able to combine points in-person at a Caesars Rewards desk. I assume that both members need to appear in person at a Caesars Rewards desk and I’m not sure if you’ll need the same home address. I don’t have experience with this, but if you’re going to Las Vegas you could try it out.
  4. Transfer to Caesars sportsbook for site credit. I haven’t tried this, but I think it might be possible to convert Caesars Rewards credit to site credit at the Caesars online sportsbook, though rules here might vary by state (and many states do not have online sportsbooks). Similar to #2 above, this probably only makes sense if you are earning Wyndham points at a nice multiplier. H/T to Dave from Basic Travel Couple for this idea.

Personally, I’m happy to have Wyndham points on the Wyndham side for Vacasa vacation rentals, but extending the expiration of your points could certainly be an appealing reason to consider making this transfer. Furthermore, if you’re going to Las Vegas, you certainly may be happy to be able to cover Caesars charges if you’re earning most of your Wyndham points at 8x.

As of January 2023, it looks like you can transfer 60,000 Wyndham points per year to Caesar’s : ‘Transfer up to 60,000 Wyndham Rewards points per year to Caesars Rewards’ loyalty program and enjoy Vegas-style rewards.’

Just a quick dp, you absolutely can transfer rewards credits to online sportsbook credits, if you wanted to.

Be careful when transfer Wyndham to Caesars if you aren’t using in 6 months, card in machine or will expire.

Looks like the transfer limit from Caesars to Wyndham is still 30k per calendar year: “Maximum of 30,000 Reward Credits can be converted to Wyndham Points per year.” I wonder if Caesars will increase that limit too.

1Between May 15, 2022 Eastern Daylight Time (“EDT”) and September 5, 2022 EDT (the “Promotion Period”), the calendar year limits on the number of Wyndham Rewards points that may be transferred to Caesars Rewards Reward Credits (a “Point to Credit Transfer”), and the number of Caesars Rewards Reward Credits that may be transferred to Wyndham Rewards Points (a “Credit to Point Transfer”) will each be increased from 30,000 (the “Standard Limit”) to 100,000 (the “Increased Limit”). Each of a Point to Credit Transfer and a Credit to Point Transfer may hereinafter occasionally be referred to as a “Transfer”.) Any Point to Credit Transfers or Credit to Point Transfers made in calendar year 2022 prior to the Promotion Period will be count toward the Increased Limit for such type of Transfer. For example, a Member who has transferred 15,000 Reward Credits to 15,000 Wyndham Rewards points between January 1, 2022 and the commencement of the Promotion Period will have the opportunity to transfer a maximum of 85,000 additional Reward Credits to Wyndham Rewards points during the Promotion Period. The Standard Limit will come back into effect for each type of Transfer immediately upon expiration of the Promotion Period. Offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Reward Credits and Wyndham Rewards points will be posted to the applicable account within six (6) to eight (8) weeks after the completed Transfer. Reward Credits and Wyndham Rewards points obtained via Transfer do not count toward Caesars Rewards Tiers or Member Levels. All Transfers are final and non-refundable. Caesars Rewards and Wyndham Rewards reserve the right to terminate this offer at any time. Caesars Rewards Reward Credits obtained via a Transfer are subject to the Caesars Rewards Rules and Regulations, and Wyndham Rewards points obtained via a Transfer are subject to the Wyndham Rewards Program Terms & Conditions.

looks like 100k both ways
