More Barclays Business Credit Cards Bugs & Finance Charge / Interest Fee Errors

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  A few weeks ago, I wrote Barclays Business Credit Cards Now Visible on App & Website (Along with Bugs and Earner Grow Card).  Since then, there have been other issues / errors with Barclays: PSA: Check Barclays Accounts For Erroneous Foreign Transaction Fees and Some Barclays Wyndham Earner Business Cardholders Being Charged $149 Annual Fee (Should Be $95).  These seem to be growing pains for Barclays as they bring business credit cards onto their personal website and app platforms.  Unfortunately, it looks like I can add one more issue to the list: finance charge / interest fee errors.  Let me explain…

I received the following email regarding my Barclays Wyndham Rewards Business Earner Credit Card statement.  The amount was for $145.13 and payment was due on September 30.

Barclays Business Credit Cards Now Visible on App & Website (Along with Bugs and Earner Grow Card)

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  2 weeks ago, I wrote Barclays Wyndham Rewards Credit Cards: Business Earner CC Online Portal & Personal Earner Plus Upgrade Offer.  In that post, I said that beginning on August 15 (yesterday), Barclays business credit cards would now show up in the Barclays App and on BarclaysUS.com, along with all of your other Barclays credit cards.  I kind of forgot the launch date but discovered the change when I signed into the Barclays app this afternoon.  At the top of the screen was my Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card along with an Activate Now button (my card was activated in 2020 when I received the card).  Maybe Barclays needed me to activate the card in the app in order for it to work properly.  I’m not sure.  I clicked the Activate Now button and then had to verify my identity by entering the last 4 digits of my social security number and the 3 digit security code.  I then clicked the Activate button on the bottom of the screen.

My Experience Booking Vacasa Vacation Rentals with Wyndham Rewards Points

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  A few weeks ago, Greg the Frequent Miler wrote 2 great articles about using Wyndham Rewards Points to book Vacasa vacation rentals (article 1 and article 2).  I wanted to provide my experience booking 2 Vacasa vacation rentals, so I followed the 4 steps that Greg laid out in the second article:

How to book Vacasa Vacation Rentals with Wyndham points

Here’s the step by step process that I recommend:

    1. Start your search here: www.vacasa.com/search?maxbeds=1&place=/usa/
      This link filters to a maximum of 1 bedroom. If you want more than 1 bedroom, change the filter, but keep in mind that 2 bedroom units cost twice as many points.
    2. Use the Vacasa website to find properties that are available for cash rates for your dates of interest. I recommend finding at least three options that would work for you, if possible.
    3. Email Wyndham to inquire about those properties and dates, here: triprewards.fulfillment@wyndham.com OR call: (506) 646-2943
    4. Put a reminder on your calendar 31 days or more before your stay to remind you to cancel if it doesn’t look like the stay will work out. Bookings are non-refundable within 30 days.

Updated at 1:50pm PT on 3/15/21: I logged into my Wyndham Rewards accounts and saw that I received 462 points as a “Barclays Adjustments.”  See the screenshot below.


Updated at 12:40pm PT on 3/11/21: I received a letter from Barclays stating that they are aware of the issue and that they are crediting my account for the correct number of points I earner.  See the full letter below.


Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  Last month, I wrote Category Bonus Points Not Posting Correctly for Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card.  In that post, I wrote about a few examples where bonus categories were not earning bonus points on the new Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card.  I am happy to report that Barclays has fixed the issue.  Here is the update I received from Brian today:

My most recent Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Card statement closed and I received both (a) 5x on new utilities charges for electric and gas charges (each of which received only 1x on the previous statement) and (b) an “adjustment” of points equal to the additional 4x on the electric and gas charges from the last statement about which I inquired via secure message via the card’s website.  So, hopefully, the issue is fixed now!
