Wyndham Rewards today announced its elite policy in the light of the current Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic that is ravaging the world.
Gold, Platinum and Diamond members will see their status extended through December 31, 2021, and points expiry is waived until September 30, 2020.
You can access Wyndham here.
Here’s the update from Wyndham:
- All GOLD, PLATINUM and DIAMOND Wyndham Rewards members will automatically have their Member Level extended through December 31, 2021. (This applies to all members globally as well as the #EverydayHeroes offer above.)
- We are pausing the expiration of any Wyndham Rewards points until September 30, 2020. (Again, this is for all members globally.)
- We are committed to, and actively exploring, additional steps that we can take to help all Wyndham Rewards members globally, which will include relaxed Member Level earning requirements, among other options. Due to rapidly evolving circumstances, it’s too soon to share specifics, however, we will do so as soon as possible.
Wyndham is offering Gold status for all essential workers:
We’re honoring #EverydayHeroes with instant complimentary GOLD membership upgrades in Wyndham Rewards. It’s our way of saying thank you to all the people who are helping keep everyday life moving: think truck drivers, delivery drivers, warehouse workers, sanitation workers, grocery associates, healthcare workers and more
I am glad that Wyndham Rewards decided to do the same. The travel in 2020 is pretty much lost considering all the restrictions and bans in place. Perhaps we can return to some sort of normalcy in 2021.
