Wyndham Hotels & Resorts and Barclays just launched a brand new credit card program for their 10-year co-brand partnership. This refresh includes three new cards that can help you maximize rewards and earn free nights at Wyndham properties faster.
The three new cards include: Wyndham Rewards® Earner℠ Card, Wyndham Rewards Earner Plus Card and Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Card. The new suite of cards replace the old Wyndham Rewards® Visa® Card, which is now closed to new applicants. Old Wyndham Rewards card holders can continue to use their card or migrate to one of the new cards.
CNBC Select shares what you need to know about the new cards.
Wyndham Rewards Earner Card
The Wyndham Rewards Earner Card is the entry-level card with no annual fee. This card is similar to the old Wyndham card and continues the same welcome bonus offer: Earn 30,000 bonus points, enough for up to four free nights at participating Hotels By Wyndham, after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first 90 days from account opening.
However, the new card is better thanks to increased rewards rates:
- 5X points on Hotels By Wyndham and gas purchases
- 2X points on restaurants, at grocery stores (excluding Target and Walmart) and on eligible purchases made at Wyndham Timeshare properties (including maintenance fee and loan payments)
- 1X point on all other purchases
- Plus earn 7,500 bonus points each anniversary year after spending $15,000 on purchases
Beyond rewards, you’ll receive Wyndham Rewards Gold membership, which includes free wifi, late checkout, preferred room selection and more. This perk also remains the same as the old card.
Wyndham Rewards Earner Plus Card
The Wyndham Rewards Earner Plus Card is the more premium offer with elevated rewards and benefits. This card has a $75 annual fee, though that’s much lower than luxury credit
