[Expired] Barclays Wyndham 45,000 Point Offer – Enough For Three Nights – Publicly Available

This deal has expired and is no longer being offered. View the best current credit card bonuses by clicking here.

Reposting as this is actually a public offer, if you scroll down to ‘terms & conditions’ it clearly states the sign up bonus under ‘Bonus Points’. Thanks to Parts Unknown for pointing this out (I actually searched, but I stupidly searched for 45,000 rather than 30,000 or 15,000).

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Barclays is offering a bonus of 45,000 points on the Wyndham card, broken down as follows:
    • 30,000 points after your first purchase
    • Additional 15,000 points after you spend $2,000 within the first 90 days of account opening

Card Details

  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 5x points per $1 spent on stays within the Wyndham portfolio
    • 2x points per $1 on gas, utility and grocery store purchases
    • 1x points per $1 spent on all other purchases
  • Anniversary bonus of 6,000 points
  • Annual fee of $75 (not waived the first year)
  • Automatic Platinum status
  • Standard Visa Signature benefits

Our Verdict

This is a somewhat common offer. but it’s as high as the bonus on this particular bonus goes. 15,000 Wyndham points gets you enough points at any Wyndham property, so this is three free nights anywhere. You can view the best uses of Wyndham points here. You can also do 3,000 points + cash, this used to be a great deal but they upped the amount of cash you have to pay in most cases so much less of a good deal than before. I think this is a good deal if you can make use of the Wyndham points, I’d recommend seeing if they have properties you like where you want to visit before applying. You can also get 1,500 more Wyndham points through this relatively easy La Quinta promotion (you’d still need more for another free night, but keep in mind you’d get some for the minimum spend as well).

I’ll be adding this to our best credit card bonus list as I do think this is a good offer and worth doing for a lot of people.  As always if you have any questions about Barclays credit cards, read this first. There is also at least one data point of Barclays possibly extending their 6/24 rule to this card as well.

The T&C link from that landing page states:
“Bonus Points

Wyndham Rewards Visa Card with $75 Annual Fee – Platinum Level – Cardholders will earn 30,000 Wyndham Rewards Points upon the first use of the card for a purchase or balance transfer.

Fifteen thousand (15,000) bonus points will be awarded after at least $2,000 in Net Purchases (that are not later returned or rescinded) has been charged to the new account within 90 days of Account opening.”

I’d go for it if I didn’t already have it

Does anyone know if this card is subject to Barclays 6/24 rule? I was recently rejected from the aviator red for this reason, and wasn’t sure if this 6/24 went to all cards now.

Same issue with aviator. Denied for Wyndham for too many new accounts in 24 months per reconsideration rep.

Looks like Barclays has extended their rule…

Thanks! Saw the email in morning and passed on it as I got stonewalled for Aviator a couple of months back. And my credit report shows 10 new accounts since 😀 Definitely avoiding it.

Just applied and denied as well. I’m well over 6/24 so that might be why.

Does anyone know if you can apply if you already have the older version of the cars that has 15000 annual and 2x on dollar but no platinum status?

Parts Unknown

You cannot, they consider it the same product.

And how do you know that?

I have this version of the card, too. Every year they offer me a credit of half the $69 AF. $34.50 for a free night at any Wyndham makes this card a keeper for me.

They give give you 15,000 points as well – or is this a benefit of the older card. My AF is $75.

HB, I too have held on to the legacy version of this card too — that annual bonus of 15,000 with a/f payment helps, plus you get 2x on EVERY dollar spent. (no category restrictions….. helping further is spend incentives I get 2+ times a year on the card.)

Interesting you note that “Every year they offer me a credit of half the $69 AF.” Do you have to call to a retention department, or do you get this offer sent to you unsolicited?

I call in to retention. This year they credited the full AF.

mr charles was wondering for some advice i dont like getting marketing emails because i ma the neat type that is very orderly and like keeping track of my email in an organized fashion however i feel that i miss out on alot of marketign emails like i have barclay cards but quickly unsubscribed to their marketing email because it was annoying now i see the 45k offer you posted here and i feeling that i missed out on an opportunity. maybe iw as targeted because i unsubscribed from their annoying marketing emails? how can i check in this scenario adnd in otehr scenarios liek when you had the 10 dollars of 30 dollars via paypal with citibank aa cards etc thank you for your help

Targeted for this; signed up for an rewards account a few months ago when I thought I’d be staying in a Wyndham location in June.

The generic link gives error “We apologize for the inconvenience, but our website is experiencing technical issues.”

Thinking about this, but no specific need for Wyndham nights and will probably get denied anyways given Barclays new “rule.” I also found the 30k / 15k $2k spend language in the Ts & Cs, like Parts Unknown.

I had this card in the past and received 45000 bonus points. Thanks to Doctor of Credit. I closed the card about a year ago. Should I be able to receive the bonus points again?

P.S. I receive this offer in the email also.

Just applied, went pending with 10 days, 30 days notice

application status check already shows denied. Will call recon.

Are you over 6/24?

yes, around 10/24. Hard denial. Called Recon. Emailed executive office, got a call back, still denied due to 6/24.

Interestingly enough….my player 2 applied and was able to get approved even though she is also around 10/24

I was denied. I called Barclays reconsideration line. They said they can approve me for the Barclays card only if I didnt have Wynd card for 24 months !!

Are you over 6/24?

I already got my wyndhm bonus of 45k points once in 2017 . Yes I am more like 25/24.


I don’t have any Barclay’s cards and was denied instantly for this card with hp. I’ll wait for the letter in the mail, but I bet it’s 6\24.

Applied and instant approval. I’m not sure I’ll go for the extra night (15,000 points), as I’m sure $2000 can be better spent on another cc, but the 2 nights for the first purchase will definitely come in handy very soon!

$2,000 for any Wyndham night is absolutely worth the spend. You’ll be kicking yourself later if you don’t do it.

Instant approval for me. $10,000 limit, 13/24, 4 inquiries in the last 3 months. I have the old x2 points everywhere, 15,000 anniversary Wyndham card still open from 6/2015, but have not applied for any Barclay products since then.

I have a general question……. my wife got the Barclays Arrival + World Mastercard w/ 50,000 points late last July (2017), used them, and cancelled it last month (June 2018). She had me added as a user. Do card companies typically look at husband & wife as the same account? Meaning….. if she got the 50,000 bonus, can I get it the next year? I’m guessing NO…. but wanted to ask. This Wyndham card looks pretty good, but she just cancelled her Barclays card. I’m wondering if I apply…. since it is another Barclay’s card….. if I will get shot down? Credit score will not be a problem. Thanks for any info!

Before I closed my Wyndham in May I transferred my points to LAQuinta which offers better hotel properties and to my needs of allowing pets free.
