The Wyndham Card Is Back With 45,000 Points [Good For 3 Free Nights] – But One Big Negative

Wyndham
Written by Charlie

The Wyndham card is back with 45,000 points for the bonus. That is good for 3 free nights! But, the new offer does bring one big negative to those wanting to keep the card.

Advertiser Disclosure

Wyndham revamped their program earlier this year and made it a flat 15,000 points for a free night redemption. That means everything from a lowly Howard Johnson to a high end Wyndham now cost 15,000 points per night. In addition, they also brought a new part called Go Fast to their redemption options. This allows you to use 3,000 points and some cash to secure a room. Along with those changes, they launched their new credit card offer of 45,000 points. Last week, that offer expired but it has popped up again!

The Signature Card Offer

While just about everything stays the same with the new card offer, there is one big negative. When this card was released in April, it took the anniversary bonus from 5,500 points to 15,000 points – another free night. Now, they have dropped it down again to 6,000 points for the annual fee of $69. While not a free night, it will give you enough points for 2 nights with their Go Fast redemptions.

The sign-up bonus on the Signature card stays the same, 30,000 points after first purchase. And, you will receive another 15,000 points after spending $1,000 in 90 days. That makes for a total of 45,000 points after spending $1,000 in 90 days. That equates to 3 free nights with their new program this year.

  • Earn 30,000 bonus points after your first purchase. Plus, earn an additional 15,000 bonus points after you spend $1,000 on purchases within the first 90 days of account opening
  • Earn 5 points per $1 spent on every participating hotel stay
  • Earn 2 points per $1 spent on purchases everywhere else
  • Earn 6,000 Bonus Points after your account anniversary every year
  • $69 annual fee

The Platinum Card Offer

The Platinum card saw the worst change – it used to be 15,000 points after first purchase and another 15,000 points after spending $1,000 in 90 days. That second bonus has dropped to only 3,000 points after spending $1,000 in 90 days. Certainly not as good as before and that would change it for me as a decision whether to get that card or not. Still, with no annual fee, it is a good card to move down to after your first year with the Signature card – but only if you wanted to earn Wyndham points as there is no anniversary bonus on this card.

  • Earn 15,000 bonus points after your first purchase. Plus, earn an additional 3,000 bonus points after you spend $1,000 on purchases within the first 90 days of account opening.
  • Earn 3 points per $1 spent on every participating hotel stay
  • Earn 2 points per $1 spent on purchases everywhere else
  • No annual fee

Summary

While it has been some time since I have last stayed at a Wyndham property, this card offer is pretty good. Getting three free nights at even high end properties (including all-inclusive resorts) as part of a credit card offer is great! This card is good if you want to take advantage of the 3 free nights a higher end properties. If you want to/typically stay at Howard Johnsons, I would just pay cash or use Priceline as this card is certainly not the best for the lower tier brands.

  • I’ve found a Days Inn near our HQ that totally acceptable (granted that wouldn’t make a great ad). It’s not the Hilton, but clean, comfortable beds, and fine for a night’s sleep.

    Between the credit card and 20 one nights stays (all reimbursed) I’m at 165,000 miles (11 free nights). Now I’ve switched to AAdvantage miles for the new Wyndham promo (3,000 miles bonus per stay).

    • Very nice! Actually, that is exactly what I look for in a hotel. If I can get one that has the higher end of things, great. But to me, a comfortable bed that I will spend 6 hours in is better than having a couch that I might spend 2 hours in. 🙂
