Hyatt Residence Club Timeshare Vacation Packages at San Antonio Wild Oak Ranch & Bonita Springs Coconut Plantation

Good morning everyone.  If you are looking for a discounted vacation, check out these timeshare vacation packages from Hyatt Residence Club.  They should be open to anyone who meets the age and income requirements (differs by property).  In exchange for booking the discounted vacation package, you will be required to attend a 90-100 minute sales presentation.  I have attended several timeshare presentations over the years.  In most cases, I know more about hotels and loyalty programs than the person trying to sell the timeshare.  And remember, if they were as good a deal as they sound, why would you need a team of salespeople to sell properties.  Lastly, people will sell their current timeshare on eBay for as low as $1 just to get out of the deal.

With that said, here are 3 “Featured Vacation Offers” currently listed on the Hyatt Residence Club website.  The three properties are:

  • Hyatt Residence Club Maui, Ka’anapali Beach
  • Hyatt Residence Club San Antonio, Wild Oak Ranch
  • Hyatt Residence Club Bonita Springs, Coconut Plantation

I Successfully Converted My Discover It Miles into a Second Discover It Credit Card

Good afternoon everyone.  2 weeks ago, I wrote How to Convert an Existing Discover Credit Card into a Different Discover Credit Card Online.  In that post, I shared how I was able to convert my Discover It Miles Credit Card into a Discover It Credit Card.  I had an existing Discover It Credit Card before the conversion, so I now have 2 Discover It Credit Cards (useful if you can max out the $1,500 quarterly spending bonus categories on both credit cards).  The previous post ended when I received this confirmation email that my request was processing.  Fast forward to now when I received my new Discover It Credit Card.  I will share some insights into the process.  The process started on February 27.

Add Funds in the Starbucks App to Trigger Starbucks AMEX Offer (15% Cash Back)

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is off to a great (sleepy) start.  I was at the Seattle FTU travel conference over the weekend and enjoyed listening to the great presentations and talking to many new and returning attendees.  In other news, there is a Starbucks AMEX Offer that came out a few weeks ago that I recently linked to my American Express Blue Business Plus Credit Card.  With the AMEX Offer, you can get 15% cash back on Starbucks, up to $5 cash back.  $5 may not seem like much, but that is basically a free drink and 15% discount on Starbucks is a pretty good discount.  You can sometimes buy more discounted Starbucks eGCs online, but those are prone to fraud and I didn’t want to risk my Starbucks account to save a few bucks.  With the AMEX Offer, it clearly states that “app reloads” will work for the AMEX Offer, so that is exactly what I did.

Come Say Hi to Me at FTU Seattle this Weekend (March 9-10)

Good morning everyone.  I am heading to Seattle this weekend for a fun-filled FTU (Frequent Traveler University).  If you are heading to the travel conference, say hi if you see me.  I will be wearing my Travel with Grant shirt on Saturday and Sunday.  It is always fun to meet TWG readers and catch up with old friends.  If this is your first FTU, try to meet and talk to as many people as possible.  Preferably, try to find people that live in the same state or region as you do, since you can swap MS stories and share local tips & tricks.  Even though I am not giving any presentations, feel free to ask me any travel, bank account, or credit card related question.  If I do not know the answer, I will probably know how you should ask.  Here’s to good weather, great conversations, and a fun weekend talking about miles, points, and travel!
