Updated on 10/8/21 at 11:45am PT: I believe this issue is fixed now. My recent statement closed on October 5 and my Wyndham Rewards Points posted to my account on October 6.
Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well. I’ve written a few posts about the new Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card over the last few months including this recent article: More Barclays Business Credit Cards Bugs & Finance Charge / Interest Fee Errors. I may have discovered another issue with Wyndham Rewards Points posting very slowly from Barclays to your Wyndham Rewards account.
As you can see, I received 716 points on 9/21/21. Before September, my points would post between the 5th and 8th of every month, usually 1 day after my statement closes. The description also changed from “Barclays Earning” to “Barclays Marketing, Advertising, Utilities Earning”.
My December statement closed on 12/7/2020 and the points posted to my Wyndham Rewards account on 12/8/2020.
My January statement closed on 1/5/2021 and the sign up bonus and regular points posted to my Wyndham Rewards account on 1/6/2021.
My April statement closed on 4/5/2021 and the points posted to my Wyndham Rewards account on 4/6/2021.
My September statement closed on 9/5/2021, but the points didn’t posted to my Wyndham Rewards account until 9/21/2021.
I understand that waiting an extra 2 weeks for your points to post is not the end of the world, but if you are planning on making an award booking or a Vacasa reservation, then it can be frustrating to check your Wyndham Rewards account every day to see if the points posted. It’s difficult to go from seeing the points post the next day to waiting 2 weeks for the points to post.
I’m not sure if this issue only affects me or if it affects all Wyndham Rewards credit card holders. Have you noticed a delay in points posting to your Wyndham Rewards account in the last month? If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
