Update 4/2/21: Note that some of the payouts that were scheduled to end on 3/31 have now been extended to 4/30/21, including Things Remembered 124X, Bloomingdales 27X, Charlotte Tilbury US 62X, Dior 41X, Crabtree & Evelyn 46X, Hugo Boss 27X, Kate Spade 27X, Lumens Light + Living 31X, Ashford 23x (great place to get a deal if you’re into nice watches and rarely pays out more than 6% via portals) – and many more (the ones expiring tomorrow are far from the only great rates – tons of stores are offering a lot of points). Remember that the “5x” promo runs until April 8th.It’s not only the airline shopping portals offering a chance to earn more rewards than normal right now.
The Wyndham Rewards portal is offering up to 5x the standard base points across most retailers available through the portal which is resulting in some excellent rates at popular retailers.
- Earn up to 5x the standard rates when shopping via the Wyndham Rewards portal.
- Direct link to offer.
- Expires April 8, 2021.
- All displayed merchant offers already include the 5X points.
Wyndham Rewards is currently running five weeks of deals and this is part of the second week’s offering. When checking through the full list of retailers and their rates, there are some fantastic earning opportunities available.
LifeLock is currently at 15,619 points which is enough points for a free night at thousands of Wyndham Rewards properties. I’d rather wait for Rakuten to return with a 100% offer for LifeLock seeing as I’d earn that in Membership Rewards, but this is still a solid offer.
There are excellent rates on lots of other retailers. Groupon is at 46 points per dollar spent which is a phenomenal return. Even if you only value Wyndham Rewards points at 0.7cpp as per their Reasonable Redemption Value, that’s a return of 32.2% which greatly exceeds the rate you’ll earn on any other shopping portal.
They’re offering 39x on 1-800 PetMeds non-prescription purchases which can be stacked with an Amex Offer giving $15 back on $100 of spend or a Chase Offer giving 15% back. There’s 27x for Bloomingdales, 23x for Nike, 19x for Macy’s, 15x for Dell and much more.
Another notable rate is 11x for Apple. We occasionally see portal rate increases for Apple, but they tend to only last for one day which means that if you don’t immediately jump on the rate increase, it’s gone. Wyndham Rewards is advertising these rate increases as being valid through April 8, so if they really do maintain these high rates for the next month, that’s a lot of time to rack up a ton of bonus points.
