Barclaycard has brought back the excellent signup bonus they had at the end of 2016 on their Wyndham Rewards Visa Signature Card. Interestingly, although there are two credit cards, both have the same name: the Wyndham Rewards Visa Card. What differentiates them is the fact that one has an annual fee of $75 and the other one has no annual fee. Both versions of the cards have had their signup bonuses increased as part of this current offer.
Enhanced Signup Bonus
The enhanced bonuses can be quite lucrative with the bonus on the card with the annual fee is enough for 3 nights at any Wyndham property. The signup bonuses are as follows:
- Annual fee card: 30,000 points after the first purchase, plus an additional 15,000 points after spending $2,000 in the first 90 days of opening the account
- No annual fee card: 15,000 points after the first purchase plus an additional 3,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days of opening the account.
How The Cards Stack Up
As is to be expected, the card with the annual fee has better perks and benefits, but whether you think they are worth it depends on your stay patterns.
This is a great offer, in light of the changes to the Wyndham Rewards Loyalty Program, where the company stunned the hotel world by pricing all award stays at their 7,800 properties at the same price, 15,000 points per night. Whether you choose to spend your points at a Travelodge or at a luxury property in the Caribbean, it will all cost the same. This great pricing policy was brought in along with other changes and new membership levels in May 2016. Have you decided where you would like to spend 45,000 Wyndham Rewards Points?
