There is box for comments that you can attach to the match.
I didn’t complete the match and submit the docs because have no planned Wyndham affiliated stays coming up. Would like to hear from readers how fast they are processing these.
Thanks for a LoyaltyLobby reader that alerted us this morning about this status match opportunity that must have been recently launched.
Here are the terms and conditions of this status match promotion:
Pursuant to these terms and conditions (the “Status Match Terms”), each member of any hotel loyalty program identified below (each individually, a “Hotel Loyalty Program” and collectively, the “Hotel Loyalty Programs”) who has achieved status in such program pursuant to its terms and conditions is eligible to apply to match his/her Hotel Loyalty Program status to the equivalent Member Level of the Wyndham Rewards Program, as set forth in the chart here (the successful completion of such process hereinafter referred to as the “Status Match”).
To request the Equivalent Member Level, an eligible Hotel Loyalty Program member (an “Applicant”) must: (i) visit https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/wyndham-rewards/status-match and either sign into their existing Wyndham Rewards account, or complete and submit the “Join Wyndham Rewards” form to become a Wyndham Rewards Member; and (ii) complete and submit the Status Match Request Form, including proof of their Hotel Loyalty Program status. Upon Wyndham Rewards’ verification of an Applicant’s Hotel Loyalty Program status information, such Applicant will receive the applicable Equivalent Member Level. Member should expect to receive such validation via email between 5-7 days from submission of his/her Status Match Request Form. Such Equivalent Member Level will become effective upon such verification. Unless extended or superseded in accordance with the Wyndham Rewards Program terms and conditions (the “WR Terms”), each Wyndham Rewards Gold Member Level obtained pursuant to these Status Match Terms will expire in accordance with the WR Terms. Each Wyndham Rewards Platinum Member Level obtained pursuant to these Status Match Terms will expire ninety (90) days after the date of the applicable Member’s Status Match verification email (the date of such email, hereinafter, such Member’s “Effective Date”), unless, prior to the expiration of such ninety (90) day period, Member completes seven (7) Qualifying Nights or his/her Wyndham Rewards Platinum Member Level is extended or superseded in accordance with the WR Terms. In the event that Member completes seven (7) Qualifying Nights within such ninety (90) day period, his/her Wyndham Rewards Platinum Member Level will remain in effect through December 31 of the calendar year following the calendar year in which such 7th Qualifying Night was completed, unless it is extended or superseded in accordance with the WR Terms. Each Wyndham Rewards Diamond Member Level obtained pursuant to these Status Match Terms will expire ninety (90) days from such Member’s Effective Date, unless, prior to the expiration of such ninety (90) day period, Member completes fourteen (14) Qualifying Nights or his/her Wyndham Rewards Diamond Member Level is extended or superseded in accordance with the WR Terms. In the event that Member completes fourteen (14) Qualifying Nights within such ninety (90) day period, his /her Wyndham Rewards Diamond Member Level will remain in effect through December 31 of the calendar year following the calendar year in which such 14th Qualifying Night was completed, unless it is extended or superseded in accordance with the WR Terms.
Members who obtain the Wyndham Rewards PLATINUM Member Level or Wyndham Rewards DIAMOND Member Level as a result of the Status Match will receive all of the perks offered to PLATINUM and DIAMOND Members, respectively, who earn such status as the result of completing the requisite number of qualifying nights at participating properties, with the exception of the points bonus (3,000 Wyndham Rewards points for PLATINUM Members and 6,000 Wyndham Rewards points for DIAMOND Members). For clarity, the point bonus is not available to members who have obtained their Platinum or Diamond Member Levels via the Status Match.
Should Wyndham Rewards be unable to verify a Member’s Hotel Loyalty Program status, as determined in its sole discretion, the Hotel Loyalty Program member will not receive the Equivalent Member Level.
For clarity, Hotel Loyalty Program members must be or become Wyndham Rewards Members to apply for the Status Match. Any Applicant who has already obtained the Wyndham Rewards Member Level this offer otherwise would have afforded them will retain such preexisting Wyndham Rewards Member Level in accordance with the WR Terms, and the Status Match will be deemed ineffective.
Any Hotel Loyalty Program member who completes a Status Match in accordance with these Status Match Terms, and subsequently upgrades to the subsequent status in the respective Hotel Loyalty Program, will be eligible, at the time of such upgrade, to apply for a Status Match to the subsequent Wyndham Rewards Member Level in accordance with these Status Match Terms.
Status Match eligibility is not transferable and may not be substituted for or combined with any other offer. A Member Level earned pursuant to this Status Match cannot be transferred, purchased or sold. A Member’s Hotel Loyalty Program status and the benefits applicable to each such status are subject to the applicable Hotel Terms and Conditions. A Member’s Wyndham Rewards Member Level status and the benefits applicable to each Member Level are subject to the full WR Terms. This offer may be cancelled or modified at any time, without notice, and is void where prohibited.
