Reviewing my Embarrassingly Wrong 2020 Travel Predictions

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend and a Merry Christmas (if you celebrated the holiday).  Since 2020 is almost over (thank goodness!), let’s review My Wildly Ambitious 2020 Airline, Hotel & Credit Card Predictions.  To be honest, I totally forgot that I wrote this post and I haven’t looked at it since it was published on December 30, 2019.  Here is what I wrote last year for my predictions and my thoughts on each prediction (correct in green and wrong in red):

My 2020 Airline Predictions

  • Alaska, American, Delta, or United will introduce a “Cash and Miles” payment option for award tickets. Clarification: This is not to be confused with Delta’s “Pay with Points” option where you get 1 CPP for each Delta SkyMiles for paid flights. I’m thinking more along the lines of the way British Airways and Avianca do it for award tickets.  No?  I haven’t booked any airline tickets in 9+ months, but I don’t think this prediction came true.
  • Allegiant Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Spirit Airlines, and Sun Country will announce a merger, but I’m not sure who will merge with who.  No, there were no airline mergers in 2020 among these airlines, but I expect to see some mergers of domestic and international airlines next year.

10 Things I’m Thankful for in 2020

Good morning everyone, Merry Christmas Eve!  As 2020 winds to a close, I wanted to share 10 things I am thankful for this year.  I hope you can relate to some of these things and have other things you are thankful for as well.  If you want, please share what you are thankful for in the comments.  Without further ado, here is what I am thankful for in 2020:

Laura

It goes without saying, but I am very thankful for my wife, Laura.  She has been my constant stay at home companion and has made this year special.  I don’t know what I would do without her.  I’ve enjoyed watching TV shows, Hallmark movies, BBQing and making dinner, baking cookies, going for walks around our neighborhood, helping me with puzzles, and much more.  I am also very proud that she finished her Masters Degree this year.  She is incredible and I love her so much.

Strange Things About my New Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card

Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well.  A few days ago, I wrote Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card Application & Reconsideration Process.  In that post, I wrote about my application, reconsideration, and approval process to get the new Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card.  Long story short, I had to send physical copies of my driver’s license, social security card, and a utility bill in my name to Barclays to verify my identity (even though I am an existing Barclays credit card holder).  That was just the first of many strange things related to this credit card.  In this post, I will go through some of the other strange things I noticed.  But first, here is the front and back of the credit card (nothing strange here).

Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card Application & Reconsideration Process

Good morning everyone.  Earlier today I wrote Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card Application Process & Reconsideration Phone Call.  In today’s post, I will write about the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card, my application process, and the hoops I had to jump through to get approved via the reconsideration process.  First off, the Barclays Wyndham Earner Business is a relatively new credit card from Barclays but the credit card has some great features.  The sign up bonus is 45,000 Wyndham Rewards Points after spending $1,000 in 3 months.  You also get Wyndham Diamond Elite Status (great for matching to Caesar’s Diamond Elite Status), 10% rebate on redeemed points toward free nights, and 15,000 points every anniversary you keep your credit card, all for a $95 annual fee.  I was hoping for an instant approval on my credit card application, but Barclays had other plans for me.
