I had some points expiring so I figured it was better use them for an upcoming trip rather than book a random one- night stay somewhere.
We’ll be visiting Argentina and Uruguay over Spring Break.
During our time away, we’ll be spending a night in Colonia, Uruguay. I booked the Days Inn Colonia Casa Del Sol for 15,000 points. If I had paid for the room, it would’ve come to $132US.
This definitely isn’t the greatest value for our points but it saved us some money for our trip.
Up until a couple of days back, an award night at any Wyndham Hotel cost 15,000 points to book. It didn’t matter if it’s a $40 room or a $200+ room.
Now Wyndham Rewards offers three award tiers. Rooms can be booked for 7,500, 15,000 or 30,000 points.Last night I did a search for our hotel in Colonia, Uruguay. To book the exact dates and same hotel room, it now only costs 7,500 points!
I’m pretty sure that I’ve read somewhere that if this happened, the difference in points would automatically be refunded to our accounts.
I checked my upcoming booking and it now stated that I had booked the room for 7,500 Wyndham Rewards points. However, no points were refunded!
I’m now wondering if I should contact Wyndham or wait a few days and see if the points difference gets automatically refunded to my account.
What would you do?
