Wyndham has introduced the new Wyndham Rewards Visa Signature card from Barclays offering a fee and no-fee version. The card with no annual fee offers a 12,000-point sign up bonus with first purchase or balance transfer, three points per $1 spent at Wyndham Worldwide family hotels, two points per $1 spent on all other purchases and a low introductory 0 percent APR on balance transfers for six months. The Wyndham Rewards Visa Signature card with a $39 annual fee offers a 18,000-point sign up bonus, five points per $1 spent at Wyndham Worldwide family hotels, two points per $1 spent everywhere else and a 0 percent APR on balance transfers for six months.
Bottom line: Hotel awards with Wyndham Rewards start at 6,000 points so new cardmembers can earn two free nights with the no fee card and three free nights with the annual fee card just for obtaining the card. This is a relatively basic, no-frills card geared toward guests who frequently stay at Wyndham Worldwide properties. The best feature is that cardholders earn double points on all purchases, which means you can earn a free night at the lowest level hotels for every $3,000 spent on the card, even if you choose the card with no annual fee.
