Wyndham & Total Rewards Launch Partnership (Status Match, Ability To Transfer Points & 15,000 Points Per Night)

Wyndham Rewards & Total Rewards have launched a new partnership. Effective tomorrow you’ll be able to status match between the program.

  • Wyndham Platinum = Total Rewards Platinum
  • Wyndham Diamond = Total Rewards Diamond (Total Rewards Seven Stars will also earn you Wyndham Diamond status)

Some things to note:

  • Must be 21 years old to be a Total Rewards member
  • You must complete the status match each year (just linking your accounts again).

Other Benefits Coming

There are more benefits coming from this partnership later this year. They include:

  • Transfer of points between the programs at a 1:1 rate (maximum of 30,000 points transferred in each direction)
  • You’ll be able to book Total Rewards properties for 15,000 points per night

Our Verdict

Total Rewards Diamond/Platinum status is quite valuable as it includes a complimentary trip to their Atlantis property in the Bahamas. The Total Rewards credit card also frequently offers lucrative spending bonuses so this new partnership might make that card worth picking up so you can redeem the points for Wyndham free nights. The SPG & Total Rewards partnership recently ended so this new partnership isn’t a huge surprise.

What are your thoughts of this new partnership?

    Never thought my Wyndham Diamond status would get me much…guess I will have to read up a little more on the worthwhile Total Rewards Diamond benefits.

  2. bob says:

    what that hell are Total Rewards?

  3. Aj says:

    @bob a pretty darn good hell that will save a lot of money if you are traveling to Las Vegas

  4. JL100 says:

    I’m Wyndham Diamond so hopefully this will get me Total Rewards Diamond. Main benefit for me would be access to Diamond Lounges in casinos in Vegas, but I never stay there so discounts would not be a benefit. More of a MLife customer.

  5. Nate says:

    Are you saying that by having Wyndham Platinum Status, I would be able to get 2 free nights at Atlantis (solely by doing the status match)?

  6. Chris says:

    Booking those weekend nights in Vegas at 15k Wyndham points is a nice perk. Wonder how they will tier our the points. Can’t imagine Harrah’s and Caesars costing the same

    • NinjaX says:

      this relationship will last a year tops. they will readjust just like Mlife Hyatt. Its a no brainer.

  7. NinjaX says:

    aw crap. cmon. better enjoy the dilution while it lasts. gee, why not just have Wyndham also reciprocal match to AA Executive Platinum while youre at it…

  8. escot says:

    Wow, thanks for the news/alert Doc. Prompted me to check our family Wyndham status (for the first time). Happens my wife’s WyndhamR account has Platinum status simply from having the newer Barclay’s WR’s credit card…. wow. Another older family WRs account has an older version of the card — which apparently didn’t (yet) get the Platinum status….

    Nasty Footnote, those mentioned resort fees for Atlantis…

    $49.95 plus a $3.75 VAT charge per room per night, totaling $53.70 per room per night

    PER NIGHT. Ruins the whole thing.

  9. bob says:

    Total Rewards Diamond lists ‘No Resort Fees’ as a benefit so shouldn’t that apply to the Atlantis trip ?

  10. Clyn6 says:

    I did something that I think was a mistake. I called and asked about Platinum status for my Wyndham card. I was told that was not available for my current card with $69 AF. I was told I could upgrade it for just $6 more a year and get Platinum status, which I accepted. For this $6 I also would receive 6,000 points each year from CC + 3,000 pts from Wyndham website. $6 for 9,000 pts sounded pretty good to me.
    Later I realized I probably could have re-applied for the new version of the card and gotten the bonus again! Has anyone tried this yet? I guess the up-side is there was not credit pull or new card to note on credit report.

  11. Frank says:

    I’m curious as well… do Diamond members pay resort fees at Atlantis?

  12. Clyn6 says:

    NinjaX; I have read all I can find and it looks like the Diamond says 4 nights at Beach towers, no mention of upgrades or coral towers. Where are you finding the waived resort fees info? I sure cannot find that.

  13. Clyn6 says:

    This commenter says resort fees waived is no longer offered; jeremy says: February 8, 2017 at 1:11 pm

    • NinjaX says:

      best to is to just call and verify. you have to call to book anyways. this could be YMMV now. people went this year and last year with waived resort fees. but either way, resort fee or not, the “free” towers are complete shit. obviously the alternative is $300 to $700+ per nite for better towers. so ur choice.

  14. Frank says:

    Can a diamond bring 2 kids along at no added cost?

    • NinjaX says:

      no clue wat ur referring to man… atlantis?

      • Frank says:

        Yes Atlantis

        • NinjaX says:

          yes but go call. shit changes all the time. it should be free though. if not, just be sneaky and dont tell them.

          • Frank says:

            Aren’t there wrist bands, therefore impossible to sneak people in?

          • NinjaX says:

            i dont know how old ur kids are but it depends. the extra cost is $50/person. the standard occupancy is 2. apparently there are wristbands, but i didnt get shit. it looked to me like you just walk in honestly. if you stay there then you have access to everything. as i said, go call and ask. however, if you want to be safe, you can declare ur kids. i dont have kids so i cant say for sure but i paid $50/person for 2 extra people 4 total in a room cuz i didnt know. it didnt look like it mattered. same with any hotel.
