Sign Up Bonus Posting Speeds for Capital One Spark Miles & US Bank Triple Cash Rewards Business Credit Cards

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  I hope you had a great Veteran’s Day Holiday yesterday.  Last month, I applied for 2 business credit cards and I wanted to share the details of how quickly the sign up bonuses posted for each credit card.  Up first, let’s talk about the Capital One Spark Miles Business Credit Card, which is currently offering 50,000 miles after spending $4,500 in 3 months.  Up next, I will cover the US Bank Business Triple Cash Rewards Credit Card, which is currently offering $500 cash back after spending $4,500 in 5 months.

Reminder: Max Out 10% Citi ThankYou Points Rebate on Citi Rewards+ Credit Card (10K Annual Limit)

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  One of my favorite sock drawer credit cards is the Citi Rewards+ Credit Card.  This credit card has a pretty decent sign up bonus at the moment (20,000 Citi ThankYou Points after spending $1,500 in 3 months), but my favorite feature of this credit card is the 10% rebate on redeemed Citi ThankYou Points.  You can receive up to 10,000 Citi ThankYou Points rebated each calendar year, you just need to redeem at least 100,000 Citi ThankYou Points in a calendar year.

So why am I reminding you about this today?  The 10% rebate posts to your Citi ThankYou Points account when your statement closes.  If your statement closes on or after January 1, that will count toward your calendar year 2022 10,000 Citi ThankYou Point limit.  Therefore, you probably only have 1 or 2 more statements between now and January 1, 2022.  I will show you how to see how many rebated Citi ThankYou Points you have already received this year and suggest 2 good Citi ThankYou Point transfer partners to use.

Wyndham Timeshare Vacation Package: 3 Nights + 15K Points for $149 in Las Vegas, Orlando, Oceanside & More

Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well.  This morning, I received an email from Wyndham Vacation Resorts for a 3 night stay in Las Vegas, Orlando, Oceanside and 6 other cities + 15,000 Wyndham Rewards Points for $149.  You have more destinations available and it’s $50 cheaper than the Wyndham Vacations Resorts deal I wrote about in September.  These vacation packages require attending a 2 hour timeshare presentation (please see the terms and conditions before booking).  You may be able to get an even better deal if you call the Wyndham Vacation Resorts phone number (1-877-393-8405).  The phone reps really want people to attend the timeshare presentation and have the power to give you more incentives, like more free points or a $100 Visa gift card.

I’m not sure if this matters, but I am in California, I have Wyndham Rewards Diamond Elite Status and I have the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card.  You need to book your reservation by November 24 and you must complete your stay within 12 months.  Here is the email I received from Wyndham Vacation Resorts:
