Barclays, a US credit card issuer, is offering their Wyndham Rewards Visa with a 45,000 point offer [this is not an affiliate link] after spending $2,000 in the first 90 days of card ownership. This is a promotion. This card has a $75 annual fee, which is well worth it for the sign-up bonus.
This isn’t a terribly interesting product for everyday use, however, this card is highly churnable, with reports of rotating accounts every three months. You’ll get Wyndham Platinum status, which has a number of perks: free Wi-Fi, early check-in, late check-out, but most interestingly, you get a 3,000 point annual bonus.
Using Wyndham Rewards
Wyndham Rewards points are redeemable for 15,000 points at any of their properties. While many of their properties are kind of gross (e.g., Howard Johnson, Super 8), they have some high-end properties. For example, the Wyndham Koloa Landing at Poipu Beach often goes for over $500/night. The Wyndham New Yorker Hotel, a nice property in central New York City, is usually available for around $300. Both of these hotels would go for 15,000 points a night, which means you can have three free nights under this offer.
Note that Barclays doesn’t issue credit cards to individuals with an ITIN – you have to have a SSN.
