Wyndham Rewards Visa card review

Wyndham Rewards Visa card

2.2 rating

The Wyndham Rewards Visa card offers an above average rewards rate on hotel and general purchases; but Wyndham points aren’t worth as much as the average card rewards point, so the hotel card’s rewards program isn’t as valuable as it seems.

A good choice for cardholders who want an easy way to earn free travel, but don’t want to pay an annual fee, the Choice Privileges Visa Signature card offers a large enough sign-up bonus to fund several nights at a budget-friendly Choice hotel, such as Comfort Inn, and an above average rewards rate on regular purchases.
