1. Program Sponsor
Wyndham Rewards® (the "Wyndham Rewards Program" or "Program") is offered by Wyndham Rewards, Inc., an indirect subsidiary of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Inc., its successors and assigns. Wyndham Rewards, Inc. is sometimes individually referred to as "Sponsor."
2. Program Changes
Sponsor may modify, alter, suspend, delete, or add new terms and conditions for its Program at any time without notice. The foregoing includes, without limitation, modifying, altering, adding, suspending or deleting point values, redemption levels and opportunities, conversion ratios, Member Levels Benefits or any other aspect of the Member Levels Program (including, without limitation, conditions for membership in the Member Levels program), earning methods and ratios and/or the participation of Earning Participants or Rewards Participants (each as defined below) at any time without notice. In addition, Wyndham Rewards may convert the Wyndham Rewards Program and Members' points into different awards programs having different point values at any time without notice. This means, in the case of Wyndham Rewards, that the number of points needed to reach a reward level may be increased, the time for earning them reduced, or the rewards changed, so you may not be able to obtain, earn or claim certain rewards no matter how long you participate in Wyndham Rewards. To view or obtain the most up to date Terms and Conditions for the Program visit wyndhamrewards.com or contact Wyndham Rewards Member Services at the applicable number found here.
3. Program Termination
Sponsor may terminate the Program at any time upon six months' notice, without further obligation to the Member.

5. Points & Travel Partner Currency

Wyndham Rewards points can be earned through (i) "Qualified Stays" at "Participating Hotels", “Participating Destinations” and “Participating Caesars Entertainment Properties”, each as defined elsewhere in this Section I below, (ii) and for the various types of Go Fast® award stays at such properties, as more particularly described in Sections II(A) and (B) below. In these Terms and Conditions, Wyndham Rewards points are sometimes referred to as “Base Points”, “Promotional Points”, “Go Get ‘Em® Points” and “Accelerated Earning Points” (each as defined below in this Section I(5)); these terms are used herein only for purposes of distinguishing the various ways to earn Wyndham Rewards points and not to convey any differences in value or restrictions on use. For purposes of these Terms and Conditions:
- “Base Points” refers to Wyndham Rewards points earned by a Member for completing a Qualified Stay or any variety of Go Fast award stay at a Participating Property in accordance with the earning ratio set forth in the chart contained in Section II(B)(5);

As more particularly set forth in these Terms and Conditions, while Members can redeem Wyndham Rewards points for stays at Redemption Only Destinations, they cannot earn points or Travel Partner Currency for stays there.

For clarity, and without limiting anything contained in the foregoing sentence, an online booking for a stay at a Participating Caesars Entertainment Property or Participating Destination must be made on a website whose address includes “www.wyndhamhotels.com” in order for such stay to be deemed a Qualified Stay. If a Member checks out and then checks back in to the same Participating Property on the same day, it will count as a single stay for purposes of calculating a Qualified Stay. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 10, certain stays at Participating Hotels which meet the criteria set forth in clauses (A), (B) and (D) above, but which are booked through independent travel agents, may also be Qualified Stays; please check with your independent travel agent prior to booking to confirm whether or not the applicable stay will be deemed a Qualified Stay.

- The various forms of Go Fast awards described in Sections III(G-1) through (I-2) below).

28. Dispute Resolution/Binding Arbitration; Governing Law; Waivers of Jury Trials & Class Actions; Limitations of Liability
PLEASE READ THIS PROVISION OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY. IT PROVIDES, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THAT CERTAIN DISPUTES MUST BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION. IN ARBITRATION YOU GIVE UP THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING. IN ARBITRATION, A DISPUTE IS RESOLVED BY AN ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES ARE SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN COURT PROCEDURES, AND ARE SUBJECT TO VERY LIMITED REVIEW.
Any Disputes between Sponsor and any Member or Members (collectively, for purposes of this Section I(28), the “Parties”) shall be resolved as follows:
A. Definition of Dispute. The Parties agree that any dispute, claim, suit, demand or controversy arising out of or relating to the Program (any “Dispute”) shall be decided initially by Sponsor, after notice from the Member.
B. Negotiation Period. If a Member disagrees with Sponsor’s decision, the Member must notify Sponsor and attempt to negotiate a mutually agreeable resolution within 30 days (“Negotiation Period”). Any Dispute that remains unresolved within the Negotiation Period must be resolved exclusively and finally by individual arbitration, administered by the American Arbitration Association, or by another reputable arbitration service if the AAA declines to follow any aspect of the Terms and Conditions, on a confidential basis.
C. Neutral Arbitrator/No Jury. Any Dispute will besubmitted to a neutral arbitrator, for a final and binding determination, known as an award. The arbitrator is an independent decision maker, appointed by an arbitration service, who reviews and weighs evidence provided by both Parties, and issues an award enforceable in court. Decisions by an arbitrator are subject to very limited review by a court. The Parties expressly waive and relinquish any and all rights to have a court or a jury resolve any Dispute.
D. Individual Basis/No Class Actions. The Parties expressly intend that any Disputes will be arbitrated on an individual basis. There will be no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or litigated in any way on a class, mass, or other collective basis, and the Parties waive any right to bring or join any representative or other claim brought on behalf of the general public, other members, or other persons similarly situated.
E. Applicable Rules/Location. This arbitration agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. § 1 et. seq.). The arbitration shall be administered under the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules, available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879 (the “AAA Consumer Rules”), except that the Parties expressly agree that the AAA Supplementary Class Rules shall not apply, given the express class waiver above, and further agree that Rules 14(a) and 53 of the Consumer Arbitration Rules shall not authorize any arbitrator or court to find that any class, mass, collective or representative claim may be arbitrated. The arbitration shall be held in New York, New York, unless the Parties agree to another location in writing, or the arbitrator decides to hold a telephonic hearing, or to reach a decision based solely on the Parties’ submission of documents, or to designate another location reasonably convenient for the Parties. If the AAA declines to follow any aspect of these Terms and Conditions, the parties agree to use another reputable arbitration service, which shall apply the AAA Consumer Rules in administering the arbitration proceedings. In the event of any conflict between the AAA Rules and these Terms and Conditions, the Program Terms and Conditions shall be controlling.
F. Stay of Proceedings. In the event that a Dispute involves both issues that are subject to arbitration and issues that are not subject to arbitration, the Parties unequivocally agree that any legal proceeding regarding the issues not subject to arbitration shall be stayed pending resolution of the issues subject to arbitration.
G. Final and Binding. The arbitration award shall be final and binding on the Parties. The arbitration submissions, proceedings, and any arbitrator’s award shall be confidential, unless and until a party seeks confirmation, vacatur or the entry of judgment on an arbitrator’s interim or final award from a court, at which point the Parties may make only such limited disclosures as are necessary to obtain or respond to such a request for relief. Judgment on an arbitrator’s award may be entered in any state or federal court of competent jurisdiction.
H. Payment of Fees. The payment of all fees for registration, filing and administration of the arbitration, and the payment of arbitrator fees, shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and applicable law, unless otherwise stated in these Terms and Conditions. The Parties shall bear their own legal fees and legal expenses for any arbitration proceeding.
Complete Waiver of Jury Trial. TO THE EXTENT A CLAIM BY ONE OF THE PARTIES AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE ARBITRATION PROVISION ABOVE OR TO THE EXTENT AN OTHERWISE ARBITRABLE DISPUTE IS LITIGATED IN COURT, THE PARTIES HEREBY UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY AND ALL SUCH CLAIMS, DISPUTES, OR CAUSES OF ACTION, WHETHER NOW EXISTING OR HEREAFTER ARISING, OF ANY KIND.
