PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - Oct 17, 2011) - Just in time for the holidays, the Wyndham Rewards® loyalty program has great news for Canadian members: it has expanded the breadth of its Redemption Catalog to now feature over 4,000 pieces of brand-name merchandise in categories such as electronics, health and beauty, tools and of course, travel gear.
In addition to more than doubling the number of reward options available, the expansion brings with it an entirely new reward: MP3 music downloads. Powered by Puretracks™, members can choose from more than 3.5 million songs and over 30,000 ringtones, with new releases added weekly. Songs are available in a number of genres and start at just 349 points, making rewards attainable after as little as just one stay.
"One of our goals for Wyndham Rewards is to ensure that we're always providing members with redemption options that they find relevant and attainable," said Robin Korman, Wyndham Hotel Group senior vice president of Loyalty Marketing. "With these new choices, we're doing just that. Whether it's redeeming for a quick reward such as downloading your new favorite song or saving points to use towards gifts during the upcoming holiday season, this new catalog offers members more options than ever before."
The new Canadian Redemption Catalog is available now at www.wyndhamrewards.com.
