Register for FTU Virtual Seminar on Saturday, June 11 ($25) or Free with Online Annual Membership

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  If you are not busy this Saturday, June 11, I highly recommend attending the FTU Virtual Seminar (tickets available for $25) or free if you have the FTU Online Annual Membership.  The seminar starts on Saturday, June 11 at 8am PT / 11am ET.  I have attended all of the FTU Virtual Seminars over the last 2 years and they are always well done, educational, and entertaining – and I am sure this seminar will be no exception!  Click here to view the complete 3-4 hour schedule and lineup of speakers.

If you register for the seminar, but are unable to watch the live stream, you can access the recording of the seminar and watch later on.  This is also a great way to re-watch your favorite presentations and catch any details that you originally missed.

I’ve written about the FTU Online Annual Membership a few times, but it is a great deal at only $69 (regular price is $129).

With your FTU Online Annual Membership, you get access to a ton of free and discounted content.  You get complimentary access to the FTU Virtual Seminar on June 11 and all future FTU Virtual Seminars.  You also get a $49 discount code for the next in-person FTU event (that $49 discount will cover most of the cost of the annual membership).

After you sign up for the FTU Online Annual Membership, make sure to register for the FTU Virtual Seminar (you are not automatically registered for the event).  Just go to the June 11 FTU Virtual Seminar page and you should see the price drop from $25.00 to $0.00.  Just add the item to your cart and check out.  You will then be registered for the FTU Virtual Seminar and you will receive all the event emails, updates, and final schedule.

After you check out, you will receive a confirmation email.  You will receive the link to join to FTU Virtual Seminar on Friday evening or Saturday morning.

If you have any questions about the FTU Online Annual Membership or the FTU Virtual Seminar on June 11, please leave a comment below.  Have a great day everyone!

Barclays Sent Me a Letter About Missed $95 Annual Fee on my Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.  A few days ago, I got this letter from Barclays regarding the $95 annual fee on Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card.  Apparently Barclays did not charge me the $95 annual fee when they should have in December 2021, so to correct this issue, they charged me the $95 annual fee in April 2022.  So much for bank error in your favor (Monopoly reference).  I’m not sure if this is a widespread issue or if it only happened to me.  In this post, I will share the timeline of events.
