Westin Mission Hills Resort & Villas Palm Springs Timeshare Vacation Package ($389 for 5 Days / 4 Nights + Freebies)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday.  If you are stuck in the cold, you might be thinking about taking a vacation to a warm, sunny destination.  Maybe Palm Springs crossed your mind with their warm, year-round climate.  Not to mention, this is the second weekend of Coachella, which is a short drive away.  I just received a timeshare vacation package offer in the mail for the beautiful Westin Mission Hills Resort & Villas in Palm Springs.  They have several beautiful photos of the resort, but here are just 2 that stood out to me.  The timeshare vacation package includes 5 days / 4 nights in a 1 bedroom villa, 2 tickets on the Palm Springs aerial tramway, and a $100 gift card to Pacifica Restaurant, a nearby restaurant serving steak and local dishes.  The cost of the timeshare vacation package?  Just $389, but if you don’t know when you want to go, a $200 down payment is all that is required.  The timeshare vacation package is addressed to me and includes a unique preferred invitation number, but if you want to participate in this offer, you can try calling or emailing the contact info on the letter.

$150 Discount Code from Alaska Airlines for a 5 Hour Flight Delay from Hawaii

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  2 weekends ago, I was flying back home from Hawaii on Alaska Airlines.  Everything was going well until we got to Maui airport.  We were supposed to depart from Maui (OGG) at 4:15pm and land in Oakland (OAK) at 12:14am.  Unfortunately, our flight departed 5 hours later than planned.  Our inbound aircraft was coming from San Diego (SAN) and was supposed to depart San Diego at 7am.  But due to mechanical issues, that flight departed 10 hours later at 5pm (I feel bad for people on that flight who were stuck at the airport for 10+ hours).  The late inbound flight caused our flight to be delayed by 5 hours.  I was tracking both Alaska Airlines flights and here were the last flight emails I received for each flight.

Before Closing Wells Fargo Propel World AMEX Credit Card, Get $100 Airline Reimbursement

Good afternoon everyone.  During last week’s rundown of credit cards who charged me an annual fee in March, I wrote about my Wells Fargo Propel World American Express Credit Card.  In that post, I mentioned that this credit card has a $175 annual fee and I could not figure out how Wells Fargo could justify charging $175 for this credit card.  I also reminded myself that this credit card offers a $100 airline reimbursement credit each cardmember year.  And since the annual fee posted on April 2, I figured I was in a new cardmember year.  I then used this credit card to buy a $100 Southwest Airlines egift card.  A few days later, I received the following email regarding the $100 airline reimbursement.
