3k+$65
Not anymore!
In a very Wyndham-typical move, they completely devalued the Go Fast (C&P) program without notice a few days ago.

It's now tied to the paid rate for the given night and basically offers something like a 35% discount on the paid rate in exchange for 3K points.

Plus, not all hotels even offer the Go Fast rate at all. For instance the Ramada Netanya has not Go Fast availability for the next few months at least.

I am not sure that is true, it is possible that it's a function of peak season vs. off season. I noticed that as well...

No, it's an official (unannounced) change

It's Wyndham. They're sneakier than any other hotel chain. Surprised it lasted as long as it did.

"Shhh" cancelled  >:(
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

They definitely killed it.

Used this extensively

the wyndham card gives 45k points at times, thats 15 room nights at 3k plus $65 each

at netanya ramada got 4 people in suite room which is normally $400 or more during high season

includes breakfast (if you eat the hashgacha) which is awesome and rivals the waldorf

was never sure why on ddf people didnt like the ramada much, i think it's a very decent hotel

fun while it lasted
