Wyndham Rewards transfer bonus to United Mileage Plus


Wyndham Rewards is offering a transfer bonus to United Mileage Plus through 8/31/23 that looks like a bad deal to me at first glance, but it might be attractive to those flush with Wyndham points that have mostly been earned at 8x.

Quick Thoughts

The ratio here at something like 30,000 Wyndham points to 12,000 United miles means that you’re not even getting half a United mile for each Wyndham Rewards point (it’s actually 0.4 United mile per Wyndham point and that value is constant in all three levels). Personally, I value Wyndham points at a bare minimum of 1c per point, so I’d have a part time parting with 30K Wyndham points for 12K United miles. That is primarily because of the partnership with Vacasa vacation rentals, where I’ve gotten outstanding value before (and I’m excited about an upcoming stay as well).

However, if you’re earning your Wyndham points at a clip of 8x thanks to the gas station bonus category on the Wyndham Earner Business card, that’s essentially like earning 3.2 United miles per dollar spent in that category. While I’d probably rather have Wyndham points around, I could imagine that some readers might be happy enough with that conversion.

I wouldn’t do this one speculatively, but then again if you don’t value Wyndham points much or have far more than you need, maybe this one makes sense.

[…] Wyndham has a transfer bonus to United MileagePlus for a single transaction through the end of the month. Assuming you’re normally earning at 8x with the Wyndham Business Rewards card, the conversion gives you an effective earn rate of 3.2x MileagePlus miles per dollar which is actually great. The tiers:– 6,000 Wyndham to 2,400 MileagePlus– 16,000 Wyndham to 6,400 MileagePlus– 30,000 Wyndham to 12,000 MileagePlusOf course there’s a big asterisk here: you can only do this once and the promotion caps out at 12,000 MileagePlus miles. For the math challenged, that means $3,750 in spend at a gas station with the Wyndham Business Card. (Thanks to FM) […]

This is a bad deal even if points were earned at 8x as that’s only 3.2x United miles.

Also, Citi points to Wyndham get the same United miles with this bonus as Citi points to Choice at the ongoing non-bonus transfer rate. 6,000 Citi to Wyndham gets 2,400 United miles. 6,000 Citi to Choice gets 12,000 Choice then 2,400 United miles.


Thanks for the heads up. Didn’t realize WR transferred to airline partners. If Vacasa redemptions ever die, this might be something worth considering, if you have a large stash of WR points. Just booked a Vacasa yesterday, 4 days for 54k points in Kauai ($1,900 retail value, 3.5 CPP).


I was disappointed that there was no vacasa in europe, but still found good redemption properties…including for rooms that fit 5 in both Malaga and The Hague


Can you let us know which Wyndham properties you booked in Malaga and the Hague that for 5ppl in one room?


There’s a partnership with Cottages in the UK. Also 15,000 Wyndham points per bedroom-night.
