Unboxing Capital One Venture X Credit Card: Card Art, Welcome Letter, Brochure & Online Activation Process

Good afternoon everyone. A few weeks ago, I did a mini app-o-rama and applied for 3 credit cards: Capital One Venture X Credit Card, Chase IHG Rewards Premier Business Credit Card (read post), and Bank of America Alaska Airlines Credit Card (read post).

In this post, I will show you the Venture X card art, welcome letter, brochure, and the online activation process.  First things first, here is the front and back of the Venture X.  It is not very flashy and looks very simple.  On the back, there is a key icon.  I figured out that you can hold the card up to the screen when you sign into the Capital One app to complete the Two Factor Authentication.

Ask Me Anything (AMA) about Vacasa Vacation Rentals or Booking with Wyndham Rewards Points

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  A few weeks ago, Laura and I went to Hawaii for vacation.  During that trip, we stayed at a total of 3 Vacasa Vacation Rentals on Maui and Oahu.  I have 7 different Vacasa stays under my belt, so I wanted to reach out to readers to see if they had any questions about booking or staying at Vacasa properties.  A few months ago, I wrote Stop Ignoring Vacasa Vacation Rentals! Get Awesome Condos for 13,500 Wyndham Rewards Points per Night.  I also wrote Booking Vacasa Vacation Rentals with Wyndham Rewards Points is Really Easy (Just Call).  With that said, here are the Vacasa properties and dates of my past stays:

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.

Stop Ignoring Vacasa Vacation Rentals! Get Awesome Condos for 13,500 Wyndham Rewards Points per Night

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  A few days ago, I booked 3 more Vacasa Vacation Rentals for an upcoming trip to Maui and Oahu.  I am a huge fan of Vacasa (especially in Hawaii) and the booking process is pretty easy, you just need to call Wyndham Rewards. The price is right too at only 13,500 Wyndham Rewards Points per bedroom per night, if you have the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner+ Credit Card or the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card (or 15,000 points per bedroom per night without the credit card).  Here are the 6 Vacasa properties in Hawaii that I have booked and stayed at / will stay at.  There are actually a few ways to earn Wyndham Rewards Points that I will show you later in the post.  Let’s get started.
