Barclaycard has increased the sign up bonuses for their Wyndham credit cards. There’s two cards and strangely enough they have the same name, but different designs and one comes with an annual fee of $75 (used to be $69). The annual fee card is the only one worth it, even though the fee is not waived the first year.
This card comes with a $75 annual fee. Currently there’s a 45,000 points sign up bonus. You will earn 30,000 bonus points after your first purchase. Plus, earn an additional 15,000 bonus points after you spend $2,000 on purchases within the first 90 days of account opening. There’s also a bonus of 6,000 points after your account anniversary every year.
This card earns 5 points per $1 spent on every Wyndham hotel stay and 2 points per $1 spent on purchases everywhere else.
Wyndham simplified its rewards program last year, so now you get a night anywhere for 15,000 points. With the bonus from this card you can get three nights, so this would make sense if you use it for stays at some of their high end properties.
This card also earn you Platinum status. That gives you Total Rewards Platinum which then gives you a complimentary 2-night stay in the Beach Towers at Atlantis. You still have to pay resort fees and housekeeping fees, but it’s a great side benefit nonetheless.
This card has no annual fee. Currently there’s a 18,000 points sign up bonus. You will earn 15,000 bonus points after your first purchase. Plus, earn an additional 3,000 bonus points after you spend $1,000 on purchases within the first 90 days of account opening.
This card earns 3 points per $1 spent on every Wyndham hotel stay and 2 points per $1 spent on purchases everywhere else.
The bonus on this card is probably not worth the hard pull.
The same increased bonus comes around occasionally. They actually offered it last Junes as well. If you’ve been waiting for an increased offer on the Wyndham cards, then this is the time to apply. You can get 3 nights at some of their best properties and also free nights at Atlantis through Platinum status. All of that for a $75 fee.
