Major developments are currently underway not just in the hotel industry itself due to the challenges of COVID-19, but also in the marketplace of co-branded rewards credit cards. As hotel chains, not to mention airlines, have sold billions of their loyalty points to credit card issuers, consumers have been seeing higher sign-up bonuses, enhanced product benefits, and even new cards altogether appear – intensifying what was already a competitive atmosphere.

Now, Wyndham and Barclays have revealed both new and refreshed Wyndham Rewards credit cards aimed at luring wary travelers back to hotels. Here are the details.
