Tips & Ideas
As mentioned at the start of this post, the catch with this deal is that you’ll have to attend a 2+ hour timeshare presentation during your stay in order to book one of these deals. With your time at the resort being fairly short that won’t be worth it for some, but for others this can be a great way to get a cheap getaway, especially because there are a few factors that make it more appealing than at first glance.
For starters, the redemption amounts listed above are the total costs per stay rather than a per-night cost. That means the 7,500 point resorts are effectively costing you 3,750 points per night, while the 15,000 point resorts are costing you 7,500 points per night.
It gets even better if you’re a Wyndham credit cardholder too. Seeing as you get a 10% instant discount on award redemptions, your cost will only be 3,375 or 6,750 points per night respectively.
Interestingly, the offer pages state that you can extend your trip for additional points if you’d like to stay longer. I doubt that you’d be able to extend at that low pricing; I suspect that you’d be charged the regular award redemption rate. However, having that option to add one or more nights to your stay could make this more worthwhile, especially if you’d be traveling a longer distance to get to the destination.
Another appealing aspect is that eligible properties include locations in Hawaii and St Thomas. I don’t remember seeing those included in past timeshare promotion offers – it’s usually places like Pigeon Forge, TN and Branson, MO. Being able to redeem only 13,500 or 15,000 points total for two nights in exotic locations like those islands is a great deal if you can handle the timeshare presentation.
Speaking of which, only take advantage of this offer if you’re sure that you can withstand pressure tactics from timeshare salespeople. I attended a Wyndham timeshare presentation five years ago, while Nick has done timeshare presentations more recently. We were both able to say no and walk away, but if you’d struggle to do that then the savings from this promotion won’t be worth the cost of a timeshare agreement that you sign. If in doubt, read the comments on the post of my Wyndham timeshare presentation post to see how unexpectedly expensive timeshares can become.
