Transfer Wyndham Points
I get a lot of questions about the relationship between Caesars and Wyndham, especially whether you can transfer your Wyndham Rewards points to Caesars- in short yes. In this post we'll cover how to make the Wyndham Rewards points transfer and why you might want to combine or transfer your points to or from Caesars Rewards. Since Caesars made changes to its rewards program, they now require Diamond members who don't earn enough points to pay 1,000 rewards credits to enter Diamond Lounges. Unfortunately if you attained your Caesars Diamond status by status matching from Wyndham Rewards Diamond, you wouldn't have earned any tier credits or rewards credits so you'll need to either earn the rewards credits or transfer them in order to access the Diamond lounges. Basically anyone who matched membership tiers from Wyndham Rewards would fall into this category. Additionally, people who have Diamond status from their Founderscard Membership have the same situation.
Of course, not everyone has Wyndham Rewards points either, luckily you can Buy Wyndham Points (here). I actually had to buy 2,000 points in order to meet the 10k point minimum for transfers. Also keep in mind you can only transfer a maximum of 30,000 points each year.
How do I transfer Wyndham Rewards Points to Caesars Rewards?
The easiest way to transfer your Wyndham Rewards points to Caesars Rewards credits and vice versa is to head over to this Caesars Rewards/ Wyndham Rewards partnership page and selecting the “Transfer My Points” Option. From there you'll need to enter your Caesars Rewards Account number and select a quantity. You can transfer Wyndham Rewards to Caesars Rewards Points in increments of 10,000 points at a 1:1 ratio (up to 3 times.) (If you're trying to transfer points to Wyndham Rewards it's the same page and process.)
Alternatively, you can transfer points transfer to Caesars Rewards credits by signing into Wyndham Rewards and navigating to the rewards redemption page, selecting transfer points to partners and the Caesars Rewards option.
How Long Does the Transfer Take
Although the terms say that the transfer could take 6-8 weeks, it actually only took about 2 weeks for my points to show up in my Caesars Rewards Credits balance.

Thoughts: Wyndham Points Value When Transferred
This is one of the better redemption options available for Wyndham Rewards members to get maximum value from their points especially for anyone who did the Wyndham Diamond status match to Caesars Diamond status. You'd not only be getting one cent per point in value but they're also gaining access to the Caesars Diamond Lounges which is not available for purchase. If you don't have the points in your account, you cannot get into the lounges. Another question I get about this partnership is, can you use Wyndham points for hotels in Las Vegas. The answer is yes but there are quite a few ways so we'll cover the details in a separate post.
