“Our cards were specifically designed with road warriors and road trippers in mind, offering rich rewards not only on gas purchases and hotel stays but other everyday spend categories as well. What’s more, they’ve come at a time when, in light of the pandemic, driving has become the go-to means for travel,” said Eliot Hamlisch, executive vice president, Loyalty and Revenue Optimization, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “To receive this kind of recognition—especially so shortly after launching the new card suite—is a testament to the thoughtful work that went into creating each card and the tremendous value that each provides.”
