250 Wyndham Rewards points per DoorDash Order

This isn’t brand new, but I think that in the midst of all of the commotion around the Chase Sapphire Reserve increasing the annual fee to $550 and also adding a $60 yearly DoorDash credit + free DashPass, we have largely forgotten this little extra hack.

All you have to do is go to https://experiences.wyndhamrewards.com/food-delivery and enter your Wyndham Rewards number before clicking over to the DoorDash website. You’ll earn 250 Wyndham Rewards points. Had I thought to do this in December, I would have kept alive the 3,000 Wyndham points that expired on me.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

It’s essentially a free $2.50 back on each DoorDash order. Even if you only do a handful to use your CSR credits, why leave points on the table?

Using Wyndham Rewards

Wyndham Rewards free nights start at 7,500 points a night (and go to 30,000 a night) but remember that you can also transfer Wyndham points to Caesars Rewards. 1,000 points would get you entry to the Caesars Diamond (Laurel) Lounges (which aren’t free to a matched Diamond) or 2,000 would get entry for you and a guest.

As well, from 1,500 Wyndham Rewards, you could book a GoFast (cash and points) rate.

You can also now top up Wyndham Rewards from Capital One Miles.

Since most of us are on the Status Match Merry Go Round anyway, sporting Wyndham Rewards Diamond Status, we may as well get some extra points!


If you don’t have your DoorDash account, you can get $5 off your first 3 DoorDash orders with my referral link.

As a reminder: Bookmark the Wyndham / Door Dash page as you do need to visit that page every single time to get the points. 

Are you collecting all your points?

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
