Although Credit Card Insider does receive compensation from some card issuers as advertisers, this does not in any way influence our judgement of a card in our reviews. Learn more about how we rate credit and charge cards.

The Wyndham Rewards® Visa Signature credit card provides points with every purchase that can be redeemed for rewards at Wyndham Hotels and Resorts. There is no annual fee, and the card comes with the benefits of Visa Signature.

The Rewards

3 points will be awarded for every $1 spent on eligible hotel stays within the Wyndham Rewards network of hotels and resorts. 2 points are awarded for every other dollar spent.

Members of the Wyndham Rewards network include:

  • Wyndham Grand and Wyndham Garden Hotels and Resorts
  • TRYP Hotels
  • Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham
  • Ramada Worldwide
  • Night Hotels
  • Baymont Inn & Suites
  • Days Inn
  • Super 8
  • Howard Johnson
  • Travelodge
  • Knights Inn

After the first purchase is made, 12,000 bonus points are awarded for new cardholders. This is the equivalent of up to 2 free nights.

Points can be redeemed through the Wyndham Rewards network for stays at participating hotels. Special discounts and offers can also be found on the Wyndham Rewards network website.

The Benefits

The exact benefits that come with this card are unspecified, but it is a Visa Signature card, which is an upper-level Visa benefits tier. For a full listing of all the benefits that Visa Signature offers, take a look at the Visa Signature section of our guide to credit card benefits. Keep in mind that your card may not include all of the benefits listed.

The Bottom Line

This card was designed with Wyndham Hotel and Resort customers in mind. If you get this card and use it at your leisure, you’ll be able to accumulate points for discounts and exclusive experiences at a variety of resorts.

There’s no annual fee for this card, so, as long as you pay off your balance in full each month, it shouldn’t cost you any money to earn discounts for hotel stays. If you get this card, be sure to look into the extra Visa Signature benefits, many of which can be very valuable for shopping and traveling.
