After a long absence, Wyndham Rewards has brought back its Wyndham status match promotion. The last time we saw a status match was way back in 2018, although the offer was discontinued early in the pandemic. However, the offer is even more generous this time than the last one, with lower requirements to retain your status.

Wyndham Status Match Overview

  • Register or sign in to your Wyndham Rewards account.
  • Head to the Wyndham status match page here.
  • Submit your current elite status credentials.
  • You will receive your status within 5–7 days.

Status retention criteria

Once you have received your Wyndham status match, you must complete the following number of stays within 90 days to retain your status:

  • Gold: 1 stay.
  • Platinum: 4 stays.
  • Diamond: 10 stays.

Once you have completed the criteria, you receive status through the end of the year after the match. For example, if you complete the challenge in July 2023, you receive status through December 31, 2024. However, if you wait to register and complete your challenge in January 2024, you will receive status through December 31, 2025. That's assuming the offer is still available in January, however; the promotion could end between now and then, so waiting presents both opportunity and risk.

Wyndham Status via Credit Cards

This very generous promotion gives you an excellent opportunity to leverage your status from other programs. Even if your elite status is through credit card membership instead of nights in beds.

For instance, holders of the Marriott Bonvoy Bevy™ American Express® Card and the Marriott Bonvoy Bountiful™ Card both receive Marriot Bonvoy Gold status, which matches to Wyndham Diamond. In the same way, holders of the IHG One Rewards Premier Credit Card receive IHG One Rewards Platinum status, which also matches to Wyndham Diamond.

Remember, if you hold the The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, you can enroll for Hilton Honors Gold and Marriott Bonvoy Gold. Both match to Wyndham Diamond. Enrollment is required for select Amex benefits.

If you're looking for a shortcut to Wyndham Rewards Diamond status, remember that's a built-in perk for those with the Wyndham Rewards® Earner℠ Business Card. It comes with a $95 annual fee and is issued by Barclays in the U.S.

Our Take

Wyndham bringing back its status match promotion is excellent news. It is made even sweeter because it is more generous than the previous offer. Any time you can leverage status with one program for status and benefits with another, the points and miles gods are smiling upon you.

Remember to plan your stays beforehand if you take advantage of the status match offer. You can only use it once, and your 90-day countdown is live once you have matched. Therefore, it is essential that you know you will complete the needed stays to retain your status through the end of the following year. If interested, you can register for this offer here.
