What changes are being made to member levels?
We’re replacing point bonuses at the PLATINUM and DIAMOND levels with accelerated earning, which will be available to GOLD level members and above. This is the only change to member levels.
Will PLATINUM and DIAMOND members still receive their point bonus in January 2020?
No. These will be replaced with accelerated earning.
Members will continue to receive 10 points per dollar spent on their room rate for most Qualified Stays (referred to in these FAQs as “base points”). In addition to those points, GOLD, PLATINUM, and DIAMOND members will receive extra points, calculated as a percentage of the number of base points earned for the stay as follows:
- GOLD level members: 10% of base points
- PLATINUM level members: 15% of base points
- DIAMOND level members: 20% of base points
How does go get ’em work with accelerated earning?
Accelerated earnings (if any) will be applied to a stay first, followed by go get ’em. In instances where accelerated earning pushes a member’s points earning above 1,000 points for a stay, go get ’em will not be applied. For example:
A GOLD member stays one night at a rate of $80 (before taxes and incidentals), earning 800 base points. Accelerated earning is applied (calculated as 10% of the base points earned), which adds 80 more points, for a total of 880 points. Because the total is fewer than 1,000 points, go get ’em is then applied, adding an additional 120 points and resulting in a total of 1,000 points for the stay.
A DIAMOND member stays one night at a rate of $125 (before taxes and incidentals), earning 1,250 base points. Accelerated earning is applied (calculated as 20% of the base points earned), which adds 250 more points, for a total of 1,500 points. Because the total earned with accelerated earning is over 1,000 points, go get ’em is not applied.
How will accelerated earning work for members who choose to earn travel partner currency?
Accelerated earning will only be available to qualifying members who choose to earn Wyndham Rewards points.
Will accelerated earning apply to go fast stays?
No. Accelerated earning will not apply to go fast stays.
Will accelerated earning apply to promotions?
Terms will vary by promotion but in general, accelerated earning will likely be calculated based on the number of base points earned (i.e. not on the number of base points + the number of promotional points earned).
Will go free/go fast award nights count toward my member level?
Yes. All award nights will continue to count toward your member level.
