My Negative Experience Moving / Reallocating Credit Limits / Prepaying Bill with Capital One Spark Business Credit Card

Good afternoon everyone.  A few weeks ago, I did a mini App-O-Rama and applied for 3 business credit cards.  One of those cards was the Capital One Spark Cash Select Business Credit Card.  That credit card currently has a sign up bonus of $500 cash back after spending $4,500 in 3 months.  I applied for this credit card and was instantly approved.  The only problem… my credit limit was exactly $5,000 and I needed to make a $5,000+ charge.  Before continuing, please read my post from this morning: My Positive Experience Moving / Reallocating Credit Limits / Prepaying Bill with Bank of America Business Credit Card.

I recently purchased a flight through the Capital One Travel portal, so I wanted to write about the booking process and timeline from booking to receiving the $300 travel credit.

Unboxing Capital One Venture X Credit Card: Card Art, Welcome Letter, Brochure & Online Activation Process

Good afternoon everyone. A few weeks ago, I did a mini app-o-rama and applied for 3 credit cards: Capital One Venture X Credit Card, Chase IHG Rewards Premier Business Credit Card (read post), and Bank of America Alaska Airlines Credit Card (read post).

In this post, I will show you the Venture X card art, welcome letter, brochure, and the online activation process.  First things first, here is the front and back of the Venture X.  It is not very flashy and looks very simple.  On the back, there is a key icon.  I figured out that you can hold the card up to the screen when you sign into the Capital One app to complete the Two Factor Authentication.

Stop Ignoring Vacasa Vacation Rentals! Get Awesome Condos for 13,500 Wyndham Rewards Points per Night

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  A few days ago, I booked 3 more Vacasa Vacation Rentals for an upcoming trip to Maui and Oahu.  I am a huge fan of Vacasa (especially in Hawaii) and the booking process is pretty easy, you just need to call Wyndham Rewards. The price is right too at only 13,500 Wyndham Rewards Points per bedroom per night, if you have the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner+ Credit Card or the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card (or 15,000 points per bedroom per night without the credit card).  Here are the 6 Vacasa properties in Hawaii that I have booked and stayed at / will stay at.  There are actually a few ways to earn Wyndham Rewards Points that I will show you later in the post.  Let’s get started.
