Card Details

Annual fee card:

  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 5x points per $1 spent on stays within the Wyndham portfolio
    • 2x points per $1 everywhere else
  • Anniversary bonus of 6,000 points
  • Annual fee of $69 (not waived the first year)
  • Standard Visa Signature benefits

No annual fee card:

  • Card earns at the following rate:
    • 3x points per $1 spent on stays within the Wyndham portfolio
    • 2x points per $1 everywhere else
  • No annual fee
  • No anniversary bonus
  • Standard Visa Signature benefits

Our Verdict

Standard bonus on the annual fee card is 30,000 points after first purchase and on the no annual fee card it’s 15,000 points after first purchase. They offered this same bonus in December of last year and when they first launch all award nights at 15,000 points. As mentioned all Wyndham properties cost 15,000 per night, so there can be some good value to be had at their higher tier properties. If you’re looking for lots of nights, this isn’t the card for you.

Wyndham has some nice properties (read our list of the best properties they have here). But I wouldn’t be doing that unless I had a specific redemption in mind. You can read our full in depth review of these cards here. In addition Wyndham recently announced and introduced some loyalty tiers, so I’m kind of surprised this card doesn’t offer any status benefit at all (e.g low level status on annual fee card or option to earn high tier status through a large amount of spend on the card).

this offer is in existence from quite sometime. there were URLs available on reddit and flyertallk. Couldn’t apply as I was not a permanent resident.

Don’t worry so much about that. I know a bunch of people have cards from Barclay while they are F1, J1, J2 or H1B holders.

on a J1 and have accumulated 15 cards from all the major banks over the past years. SSN is required, of course

Applied for Wyndham, rejected, then recon and approved today for my first barclay card

William, there’s a type in your post.

“$69 Annual fee card: 30,000 points after your first purchase…”

It should say 45,000 points.

Read the post again it’s “$69 Annual fee card: 30,000 points after your first purchase and an additional 15,000 points after you spend $1,000 within the first 90 days of account opening.

Oops gotcha!

Your old offer link was still valid…

It’s tougher than other chains to get info on this card, but I assume it has to be similar to the Arrival+ since that’s probably the most popular Barc card. I’m coming up on one year with the $69 AF card, and I saw that you can’t have two of the same cards at once – at least for Arrival+ – but I would prefer to downgrade the first card to no annual fee to keep a credit history with them. Is it possible to downgrade that $69 AF card to the no annual fee version, and then reapply for the $69 AF, or will they detect I’ve had that card with the account number and deny it for a duplicate.

Looking for advice from anyone with experience churning any Barclay’s card, not just the Wyndham card.

Supposedly it’s churnable but don’t trust me on this… BTW what annual bonus version did you get? If you got the one with 15k annual bonus and you still like Wyndham cards, then I’d suggest you keep it. It’s hard to say if they will ever offer that card again.

That what I was referring to when I said I saw you cant have two at once…nothing about if downgrading is considered a different product that would allow me to apply to same card again though :/

Drew: I downgraded when Arrival Plus’ fee was due. I waited a while and applied. I was denied because I currently held the Arrival card. Barclay said they did not process a hard inquiry since I was not getting the card bonus.

This is exactly what I was looking for, thanks. I’ll be closing the account and hope I’m approved when I reapply.

I don’t think the offer has been gone for months. I know I had written about it a couple of months ago but the link had changed from the one in December.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page
layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

I tried to check if you have reported Bank of Texas for the bonuses.
You have not (I might be wrong).

Here is the link

Heard that there will be a status benefit for card holders, TBA soon.
