Bicester Village, the designer outlet shopping centre in Oxfordshire, is well known for its various airline and hotel partnerships, including with Avios. This article explains how to earn Avios on your shopping and you can often combine this with a cashback offer via a credit card cashback portal.

The latest Bicester Village promotional email had a slightly left-field offer in it – free Gold status with the Wyndham Rewards hotel loyalty programme.

Free Wyndham Rewards Gold status

Gold status is not exactly hard to earn – you get it after just three nights in a membership year. However, if you only have very occasional Wyndham stays then getting it for free is better than nothing.

The benefits are not huge, but they include a 10% points bonus, late check-out privileges and priority to receive your preferred room type (high floor etc).

Wyndham has 68 hotels in the UK, which is more than you might have expected. They trade under the following brands:

  • Days Inn (often found at motorway service stations)
  • Ramada (including Ramada Encore, Ramada Plaza and Ramada Resort)
  • Trademark (a new ‘soft’ brand – contains Trafford Hall in Manchester and Staindrop Lodge in Sheffield)
  • Wyndham

If you are on the Bicester Village email list, you can claim your free Wyndham Rewards Gold status via this link.

    I think one of Cruz’s most laughable things he ever did was wear a hi-viz vest in a room full of computers to give a statement and apology to everyone affected by the wonderful IT systems they used, that caused huge problems for just about everyone with travel plans (using BA). Many of those vowed never to use the airline again
