PARSIPPANY, N.J., Oct. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyndham Rewards, the world's most generous rewards program spanning more than 30,000 hotels, vacation club resorts and vacation rentals globally, today announced it has once again been named the best hotel loyalty program in the USA Today 10Best Readers' Choice Awards and that the Wyndham Rewards® Visa® Card has been named the best travel and hotel co-branded credit card.


This marks the second consecutive year that Wyndham Rewards has taken top honors in the hotel loyalty program category. Nominations are sourced by a panel of travel industry experts, including editors from USA Today and 10best.com, and winners are chosen based on daily voting from USA Today readers over a period of four weeks.

"In a crowded loyalty landscape, it's thrilling to know that our program and credit card were ranked number one by those who matter most: our members," said Eliot Hamlisch, senior vice president, Worldwide Loyalty and Partnerships, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.

This year's ranking comes on the heels of Wyndham Rewards introducing a host of new features this past spring, all centered on making the program even more rewarding for its millions of members around the globe. Among the many enhancements introduced: free nights at thousands of hotels starting at just 7,500 points, new places to stay with the addition of more than 900 La Quinta® by Wyndham hotels and more ways to earn and redeem thanks to relationships with DoorDash, Viator, Marathon gas and others.

Added Hamlisch, "When we evolved Wyndham Rewards, it was in direct response to feedback from our members and the benefits and features they told us they value most. This latest honor is a testament to the significance of that work and the continued importance of celebrating and serving the everyday traveler."

This fall, Wyndham Rewards members can earn up to 30,000 bonus points, enough for up to four free nights, when they apply and are approved for the Wyndham Rewards Visa Card. For more information, including full promotional terms, visit www.wyndhamrewards.com.
