Wyndham Rewards Members Can Now Turn Points Into Cash With Bakkt
Earn up to 3,000 Wyndham Rewards bonus points when you link accounts and convert your points
Wyndham Rewards members can now convert their Wyndham Rewards points to cash thanks to a newly launched relationship with leading digital asset marketplace Bakkt and its highly-rated Bakkt App.
Available starting , members of Wyndham Rewards can easily link their account within the Bakkt App, unlocking the ability to instantly convert their points to cash using the app. Once converted, members may then deposit the funds into their bank account, send them to a friend, purchase discounted gift cards or use them for online and in-store purchases via both Apple Pay® and Google Pay, among other options. Members may also use the Bakkt App to purchase additional Wyndham Rewards points, either via funds they’ve received from converting other loyalty currencies to cash or through another preferred payment method.
“Wyndham Rewards prides itself on being the world’s most generous rewards program, which means we’re constantly looking for new ways to help our more than 90 million enrolled members engage with and receive value from the program,” said Eliot Hamlisch, executive vice president, Loyalty & Revenue Optimization, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “By teaming with Bakkt and further broadening the program’s appeal, we’re not only creating opportunities to pull in new members, we’re giving existing members even more reasons to stay and earn points with our expansive portfolio of hotels.”

The program’s Member Levels (status), which are among the most attainable in travel, allow members to unlock great benefits like a preferred room, late checkout and accelerated earning and more.
