Wyndham Timeshare Vacation Package: 3 Nights + 15K Points for $199 in Anaheim, Orlando, Las Vegas, NYC & More

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  This morning, I received an email from Wyndham Vacation Resorts for a 3 night stay in 11 different cities (including Anaheim, Orlando, Las Vegas and New York City) + 15,000 Wyndham Rewards Points for $199.  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 September 26 and you have 12 months to complete your stay.  Here is the email I received from Wyndham Vacation Resorts:

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.

My 2022 Midyear Review of Airline, Hotel & Credit Card Predictions

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. Much like the corporate world with midyear reviews, I thought it would be fun / embarrassing to do a midyear review of My Wild and Crazy 2022 Airline, Hotel & Credit Card Predictions.  I copied the list from the previous post and will see how many predictions I got correct and how many were dead wrong.  But remember, there is still 6 months left in the year for the remaining predictions to come true…

My 2022 Airline Predictions (1 / 7)

  • Alaska Airlines or Southwest Airlines will bring back their “convert travel funds to airline miles” feature. – I still cannot believe this feature exists but Alaska and Southwest are not using it.
  • American Airlines will return as a Citi ThankYou Points airline transfer partner. – I still cannot believe that Citi can’t get American Airlines to come back to the ThankYou Points portal.
  • Avianca will give Turkish Airlines a run for their money for domestic Star Alliance awards.
  • British Airways will let you use Avios to pay the taxes, fees, and fuel surcharge portion of award tickets.
  • Delta Airlines, Southwest Airlines, or United Airlines will introduce a “Miles and Cash” payment option for award tickets (pay 10,000 miles or pay 8,000 miles + $40).
  • JetBlue will partner with another US airline for award bookings. – Yes, you can book JetBlue flights using American Airlines miles.
  • United Airlines will be a transfer partner with Brex, Citi, or American Express.

7 Buy Miles / Points Promos Ending Soon: Alaska (50%), Air France / KLM (120%), United (90%), Spirit (80%), JetBlue (60%), Etihad (50%) & Wyndham Hotels (25%)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday!  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 7 offers that end in the next week.  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 7 offers that end soon.  Up first, Alaska Airlines is offering up to a 50% bonus, depending on the number of Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles you purchase.  This offer expires tomorrow – June 25.

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:
