Wyndham Rewards is one program we haven’t covered
yet for their COVID-19 policies. They announced that no points will

elite tier members to the end of 2021. Since they now have status
extensions Wyndham has temporarily stopped matching status from other
programs. In terms of actual stays they are offering no fee cancellations

to 15% of total qualifying purchases up to a maximum of $40 in credits-
Personally I received it on the Platinum card. You can find this and most other offers on our Guide to American Express Canada ‘Amex Offers

loyalty programs while staying at home you’ll know that there can be
opportunities to pull value out of buying miles and points from the programs. Right now there are 9 different offers available in the market which we summarized on our global website. See that summary here.

Avianca LifeMiles has also put a pause on the
expiration of their miles until the end of the year. This is good news
if you are one who has taken advantage of their amazing buy miles offers
and are still sitting on a balance of miles.
