You can now get 45,000 Wyndham hotel points when you sign-up for the Barclays Wyndham Rewards credit card and spend $1,000 within 90 days.   You will also get 20,000 Wyndham points after spending $1,000 in the 1st 90 days if you sign-up for the no annual fee version of this card.

For a Limited Time You Get 15,000 More Bonus Points With the Barclays Wyndham Card and 8,000 More Bonus Points With the No Annual Fee Version

This is better than the 30,000 or 12,000 points you used to get with these cards.

Wyndham hotels includes Baymont Inn, Days Inn, Hawthorne Suites, Howard Johnson, Knights Inn, Microtel, Ramada, Super 8, Travelodge, Wingate, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Wyndham Garden, and Wyndham Grand Collection.

Barclays Wyndham Rewards Cards

There are 2 versions of the Barclays Wyndham Rewards card and you can currently earn an increased sign-up bonus on both cards.

Barclays Wyndham Rewards Card ($69 Annual Fee)

Here’s are some of the benefits you get with this card:

  • Get 30,000 points with your 1st purchase
  • Get another 15,000 points when you spend $1,000 within 3 months
  • 5 points per $1 spent at Wyndham hotels
  • 2 points per $1 in everyday spending

Barclays Wyndham Rewards Card (NO Annual Fee)

This card’s benefits include:

  • 12,000 Wyndham points after your 1st purchase
  • Another 8,000 Wyndham points when you spend $1,000 within 3 months
  • 3 points per $1 spent at Wyndham hotels
  • 2 points per $1 in everyday spending

Take a look at the Wyndham award chart to see what you can do with the points you earn.  Wyndham has increased the price of award nights without notice previously, so I’d spend these points sooner rather than later.

You Could Get 2 Nights at a Wyndham Tier 6 Hotel With 45,000 Points or 2 Nights at a Wyndham Tier 3 Hotel With 20,000 Points

Transferring Wyndham Points to Southwest

Transferring points from Wyndham to Southwest does count towards the Southwest Companion Pass.  But you don’t get as many Southwest points as you used to when you transfer from Wyndham.  You now get only 1,200 Southwest points for every 6,000 Wyndham points you transfer.

So the 45,000 Wyndham points will only give you 9,000 Southwest points (7.5 x 1,200 Southwest points).  And 20,000 Wyndham points will get you only 4,000 Southwest points.

Should You Sign-Up for This Card?

Probably not!  Unless you stay at a lot of Wyndham brand hotels and are running out of cards to apply for.

However, it’s important to choose your Barclays cards wisely!  That’s because Barclays has become strict about only allowing folks to get 1 to 2 Barclays cards per year.

Carefully Choose Your Barclays Applications!

In my opinion, the Barclays Arrival Plus and Barclays US Airways are better choices.  The Barclays Arrival Plus card is 1 of my favorite cash back cards.  And the Barclays US Airways card won’t be around much longer.

For folks who are new to miles and points, you can find lots of better options in the Hot Deals tab.

Bottom Line

For a limited time, you can get 45,000 points with the $69 annual fee version of the Barclays Wyndham card and 20,000 points for the NO annual fee version of the Barclays Wyndham card.

These cards may be a good option for folks who stay at a lot of Wyndham hotels.  Otherwise, because you can only apply for 1 to 2 Barclays credit cards per year, the Barclays Arrival Plus or the Barclays US Airways may be better choices.

But as always, do what works best for you!
