PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - July 14, 2014) - Wyndham Rewards®, the only hotel loyalty program to offer guaranteed rewards after just one stay, is helping members win big this summer with a chance to receive up to 10 times the points for qualified stays plus a newly launched sweepstakes in which two lucky members could each win up to $1,000,000.
Now through September 15, 2014, members who visit www.wyndhamrewards.com and register for the program's "Unpack Your Bonus Promotion" will receive the opportunity to virtually "unpack" a suitcase and reveal a bonus that will multiply points earned on future stays by up to 10 times. Bonuses range from two times to 10 times and are good for up to four qualified stays. Stays must be completed during the promotional period.
Members can also enter for a chance to win a prize of anywhere from $10,000 to $1,000,000 this summer via the program's "One Million Dollar Sweepstakes." To enter, members need only visit www.wyndhamrewards.com/win or call 1-866-996-7937. Non-members may enter by enrolling in Wyndham Rewards through one of the above methods, or in person at any participating hotel. There is no cost to enroll in the program or to enter the sweepstakes.
"Summer is that time of year when we all want to get out and travel," said Mike Mueller, vice president of loyalty, marketing and partnerships at Wyndham Hotel Group. "Whether it's a week at the beach, a road trip down the coast or just a quick overnight getaway, no one offers their members more hotels or a faster way to rewards. Plus, with bonus points and a million dollars on the line, this could be the year that the family vacation lets members bring home a whole lot more than postcards and souvenirs!"
Upon conclusion of the Wyndham Rewards Million Dollar sweepstakes, which ends September 15, 2014, two grand prize winners, one from the U.S. and one from Canada, will be randomly selected from all eligible entrants to participate in a yet-to-be revealed special event where they each will have the chance to hand pick a prize from a group of 50 random packages. One will contain the $1,000,000 prize and the remaining packages will contain a prize of $10,000. Whichever package each winner picks, that's the prize that he or she will receive. If the $1,000,000 prize is won, it will be paid as a ten year annuity in USD or CAD, depending on the winner's residence.
Both the Unpack Your Bonus Promotion and the Wyndham Rewards Million Dollar Sweepstakes are open to all eligible residents of the U.S. and Canada. For full terms and conditions of the Unpack Your Bonus Promotion and the official rules of the One Million Dollar Sweepstakes, visit www.wyndhamrewards.com.
