1. Join the Wyndham Rewards

There are three types of rewards programs available to join, each with their own perks and levels of savings. Enroll in Wyndham Rewards and earn points at over 7,000 hotel locations in 12 hotel brands to use towards rewards such as a free night's stay, airline miles, gift certificates, merchandise and more. The program is free to enroll and rewards are guaranteed after as little as one night stay.

Additionally you can apply for the Wyndham Rewards Visa Signature Card to score even more savings. The card with no annual fee earns 12,000 bonus points on your first purchase, 3 points for every $1 spent at participating locations, and 2 points for every $1 spent everywhere else. The Visa Signature Card option with a $69 annual fee ups the ante with 30,000 bonus points (worth approximately 5 free nights) on your first purchase, 5 points for every $1 spent at participating locations, 2 points for every $1 spent everywhere else, and 5,500 bonus points (enough for 1 free night) every year on your anniversary.

2. Save with AAA

Be sure to mention that you're a AAA member when booking to receive 10% or more off the best available rate at participating Ramada hotels. The website has a AAA information page where you can enter your travel information and search for discounted rates, and CAA members are also eligible for this discount.

3. Ask About Other Discounts

Ramada boasts discounts for AARP members, group discounts, organization discounts for reservations of 10 or more, government employee and corporate discounts. Seniors and AARP members save up to 20% off the best available rate and can use the AARP information page to enter membership information and search for the best available rate. The other discounts available can vary by location so be sure to ask when you're making reservations to take advantage of one of these great offers.

4. Best rate guaranteed

When you book online or by phone, Ramada guarantees you will get the lowest rate available. If you find a lower, publicly available rate for the same hotel on the same date, Ramada will match the rate and even give you a 10% discount. For example, if you book through Ramada and then find a better deal on a discount website like Expedia, Ramada will match and discount the rate, guaranteed.
