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.
Good morning everyone, happy Friday! Laura and I just finished selling our old home, buying a new home, doing a few small home improvement projects around the new home (painting rooms, changing lights, etc.) and unpacking boxes. I haven’t had much free time to write blog posts over the last few weeks, but now that the dust has settled, I have more free time now.
A few weeks ago (in the middle of packing and moving), Laura and I went to Maui for her Spring Break (she is a teacher). We flew Alaska Airlines roundtrip from San Francisco (SFO) to Maui (OGG) using my Alaska Airlines Companion Fare. Since we both have Alaska Airlines MVP Elite Status, we were upgraded to first class on our return flight. In my experience, I have had good luck getting upgraded when flying on less popular routes and on less popular days (like weekdays).
We used AutoSlash to help get us a good deal on a Hertz rental car. The new Maui airport rental car facility is very nice – I wish all airports had a rental car facility and tram system like the one at the Maui airport. We stayed on the South Shore in Kihei in a Vacasa Vacation Rental. The rental cost 13,500 Wyndham Rewards Points per night and I used a combination of points from my Barclays Wyndham Rewards Business Earner Credit Card and transferred Capital One Points to Wyndham Rewards to top off for an award. Here is the view from our Vacasa Vacation Rental:
Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well. Yesterday, I received an email from Wyndham Vacation Resorts for a 3 night stay in Anaheim, Orlando, Las Vegas and 7 other cities + 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 February 8 and you must complete your stay by December 31, 2022. Here is the email I received from Wyndham Vacation Resorts:
Good morning everyone, happy Friday! I just wanted to share that my 15,000 anniversary points from my Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card just posted to my Wyndham Rewards account. I opened this credit card on October 25, 2020, so this is my first round of anniversary points. I would have assumed that the points would have posted closer to October or November 2021, but better late than never.
Good morning everyone, happy New Year’s Eve! Every year, I like to check out my stats from Google Analytics to see which blog posts were the most popular. I created 2 lists by looking at all blog posts written in 2021 and then I looked at which posts were read the most in 2021, but written in previous years (#stayingpower). I will list the blog posts from top to bottom based on pageviews, share the original published date, and provide a short summary of each blog post. If you are curious, here were the most popular posts from 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
