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:

Good evening everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 4 offers that are ending soon.  Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you.  Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind.  With that said, here are 4 offers that end soon.  Up first, IHG Hotels is offering up to a 100% bonus, depending on the number of IHG Rewards Club Points you purchase.  This offer expires tomorrow – November 8.

PSA: Keep Checking IHG Award Prices for Price Drops, Then Rebook or use Free Night Certificates

Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.  I have an upcoming trip to New York City and have been planning my hotel stays for a few days.  I really like the Kimpton brand that is part of IHG Rewards and there is a Kimpton Muse Hotel in New York City that is close to Broadway and Times Square.  I have 3 IHG Free Night Certificates from my Chase IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card and my old Chase IHG Rewards Plus Credit Card (no longer available) that are good for award redemptions up to 40,000 IHG Points.  When I searched for award nights in November through January, I noticed point prices ranged from 31,000 IHG Points per night up to 73,000 IHG Points per night.  I looked at the same few days over a week period and noticed that the point prices would change from day to day, based on the cash price of the hotel on that specific night.  In this post, I will share the point prices and the cash prices I observed over the next 3 months and share my thoughts and findings.  I will also show you how to use your IHG Free Night Certificates and use the fourth night free benefit.

AMEX Chat Reps Cannot 100% Confirm Eligibility for New Credit Card Sign Up Bonus

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  A few weeks ago, I was planning on applying for the American Express Marriott Bonvoy Business Credit Card.  As of October 18, the current sign up bonus is 125,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points plus 2 Free Night Certificates (up to 50K Points / Night) after spending $5,000 in 3 months.  I have never had this specific credit card before, so now seemed like a great time to pick up this credit card with an increased sign up bonus.  Before I applied, I reached out to American Express via their online AMEX Chat feature to see if I was eligible.  I will explain more below, but long story short, the AMEX Chat rep said I was eligible, but the AMEX popup said I was not eligible.
