Merge Your LaQuinta Returns And Wyndham Rewards Accounts Now!

In May of 2018, Wyndham Worldwide acquired LaQuinta Holdings for 1.95 billion dollars and added 900 additional franchised hotels to their large portfolio, in what was one of the least publicized hotel mergers ever. While this merger was met with a collective yawn from the points and miles world, there is one date that you should pay attention to.

On April 3, 2019 the LaQuinta Rewards loyalty program will merge into the Wyndham Rewards program.

If you have any points in the LaQuinta Rewards program, you’ll want to transfer them to Wyndham Rewards by March 31st.

Why do you need to transfer your points by then? I’m glad you asked.

What You Get If You Sign Up For These Hotel Programs

Miles and points are two ways to improve the way you travel and getting a healthy balance of hotel points is a major part of that.

That’s money you can use for something else on your trip.
