  7. Automatically receive a Wyndham Rewards Gold Membership.

  9. No annual fee.

Disadvantages

  1. The free night is typically not worth a lot since most Wyndham hotels are not very expensive.
  2. Note that Wyndham points expires after 18 months for inactivity, and expires after 4 years no matter what. Therefore it is not a good idea to accumulate a lot of Wyndham points if you don’t plan to stay in Wyndham in the near future.

Recommended Application Time

  1. Barclays value the number of recent hard pulls a lot, we recommend you apply when you have less than 6 hard pulls in the past 6 months.
  2. We recommend you apply for this card after you have a credit history of at least one year.

Summary

We recommend applying for the Barclays Wyndham Earner Plus for a higher welcome offer, and then downgrading it to this no annual fee version when you don’t want to pay the annual fee anymore. It’s really nice that the reward night discount and card member discount are also on this no annual fee card.
