Booking Vacasa Vacation Rentals with Wyndham Rewards Points is Really Easy (Just Call)

Good afternoon everyone.  A few months ago in April 2021, I wrote about My Experience Booking Vacasa Vacation Rentals with Wyndham Rewards Points.  The booking process has come a long way since April, so I wanted to provide an update and show how easy and quick it is to book a Vacasa Vacation Rental using your Wyndham Rewards Points.  Here are the steps I recommend:

  1. Start your search here: https://www.vacasa.com/search?maxbeds=1&maxrate=350&place=/usa/ (this will show all properties that have 1 bedroom and cost less than $350 / night)
  2. Enter the city or state you are interested in
  3. Enter your check in and check out dates (this will only show properties that are available for the duration of your stay)
  4. Then look at all the properties that have ratings / reviews, focusing your attention on properties that have the best / most / recent ratings
  5. Then look at the photos and read the description (some properties charge a resort fee or parking)
  6. Once you have identified your top 1-3 properties, it is time to book the reservation

For an upcoming trip to Maui, I settled on this Vacasa Vacation Rental: Hale Kai O Kihei 207 – Kihei, HI

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:

4 Buy Miles / Points Promos Ending Soon: IHG (100%), Choice (30%), Wyndham (25%), & Southwest (75%)

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.

Capital One Spark Miles Business Credit Card Application Process & Welcome Documents

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  2 weeks ago I applied for the Capital One Spark Miles Business Credit Card.  I haven’t had a personal or business Capital One credit card in many years (despite submitting a few credit card applications over the years).  I decided to give Capital One another chance since they recently improved the transfer ratios to almost all of their transfer partners to 1:1 (1,000 Capital One Miles = 1,000 airline miles).  This time, my Capital One application was instantly approved!  In this post, I will share details of the application process and the welcome documents I received from Capital One.

Are Points Posting Slower from Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card? [Fixed Now]

Updated on 10/8/21 at 11:45am PT: I believe this issue is fixed now.  My recent statement closed on October 5 and my Wyndham Rewards Points posted to my account on October 6.

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  I’ve written a few posts about the new Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card over the last few months including this recent article: More Barclays Business Credit Cards Bugs & Finance Charge / Interest Fee Errors.  I may have discovered another issue with Wyndham Rewards Points posting very slowly from Barclays to your Wyndham Rewards account.

As you can see, I received 716 points on 9/21/21.  Before September, my points would post between the 5th and 8th of every month, usually 1 day after my statement closes.  The description also changed from “Barclays Earning” to “Barclays Marketing, Advertising, Utilities Earning”.
