May 01, 2014 // Franchising.com // PARSIPPANY, N.J. – Movie fans rejoice. Wyndham Rewards®, the only hotel loyalty program to offer members Guaranteed Rewards after just one qualified stay, is celebrating its role as the official global hotel partner of X-Men: Days of Future Past with an X-Treme promotion for members: dinner and movie for two starting with their second qualified stay.
Provided in the form of 8,000 bonus points - enough for a $25 Restaurant.com® e-certificate and two Hollywood Movie Money® certificates - the multi-month stay-based promotion is one of several key promotional initiatives to be launched by the program in coordination with the film, which arrives in theaters May 23, 2014.
"By all accounts, X-Men: Days of Future Past is poised to be yet another summer blockbuster from the team at 20th Century Fox," said Mike Mueller, vice president of loyalty, marketing and partnerships at Wyndham Hotel Group. "What better way to celebrate its pending arrival with our members than by giving them the chance to actually go and see the film and have dinner included."
In addition to the stay-based promotion, Wyndham Rewards is offering collectable, character-based X-Men hotel key cards at participating properties around the country as well as an interactive quiz on www.facebook.com/wyndhamrewards where members can discover which character's travel habits most closely align with their own. Two lucky members will also receive an all-expenses paid trip for two to the official red carpet premiere of the film, as a part of the program's recent "X-Treme X-Men: Days of Future Past Sweepstakes."
"We couldn't be more excited to partner with Wyndham Rewards for our biggest movie of 2014," said Zachary Eller, senior vice president, marketing partnerships at 20th Century Fox. "Wyndham's massive scale, touch points and unparalleled rewards program allow us to communicate to consumers through channels we would otherwise not be able to reach."
The Wyndham Rewards 2014 X-Men promotion is available now through July 7, 2014 and is open to U.S. and Canadian members. To be eligible for the 8,000 point bonus, which may be earned on the second, third and fourth qualified stays, members must first register. The Restaurant.com e-certificate is not available in Canada. Canadian members may redeem Hollywood Movie Money and two $5 gift cards instead.
