I Received Southwest Airlines Travel Reimbursement Payment via Hyperwallet (2 Months Later)

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  Back in December 2022, Laura and I were both impacted by the Southwest Airlines travel disruption.  I filled out the online form, provided our alternative travel receipts (we ended up flying Alaska Airlines instead of Southwest Airlines), and then received this Southwest Airlines confirmation email with our case number.  That was back on December 30, 2022, and I expected to hear back from Southwest Airlines sometime in January.

On January 4, we did receive 2 emails regarding Southwest Airlines Gesture of Goodwill 25,000 Point Award Codes (which I wrote about here), but we didn’t hear anything about our case number through the end of February.  Since the email below does not have an email address that you can respond to, I submitted another request with Southwest Airlines and asked for a status update on our case.

Have you Read my Most Popular Posts of 2021?

Good morning everyone, happy New Year’s Eve!  Every year, I like to check out my stats from Google Analytics to see which blog posts were the most popular.  I created 2 lists by looking at all blog posts written in 2021 and then I looked at which posts were read the most in 2021, but written in previous years (#stayingpower).  I will list the blog posts from top to bottom based on pageviews, share the original published date, and provide a short summary of each blog post.  If you are curious, here were the most popular posts from 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.

$10 Statement Credit Posted for $50 PayPal Purchase (US Bank December 2020 Promo)

Good morning everyone, happy Super Bowl Sunday!  2 months ago, US Bank sent out a (targeted?) promo to US Bank credit card holders where you could earn a $10 statement credit for adding your credit card to PayPal and making $50 of PayPal purchases by December 31, 2020.  This was an easy money maker for me, so I added my US Bank Altitude Reserve Credit Card to my PayPal account and made a $50 purchase.  The $10 statement credit took a while to post to my account, but finally posted on February 5, 2021 (a day after my February credit card statement closed).  If you participated and completed this promo, you should see the $10 statement credit right after your February 2021 statement closes.

New AMEX App Feature: Split Purchases & Request Venmo or PayPal Payments from Others

Good morning everyone.  I was checking my American Express credit cards on the AMEX App and was shown a new feature where you can split purchases with friends and family members.  You make the purchase on your American Express credit / charge card and then you can request payment from your Venmo or PayPal account.  Supposedly, this is a “seamless way to split payments.”  In this post, I will show you how the process works.
