    Since you paid by credit card, if it were me I would call the credit card company and dispute the charge, explaining that you already sent a rescission letter. I wouldn't wait for Wyndham to act on the letter.

    You did good by rescinding. I too drank the koolaid almost 10 years ago. I did not know about this site. There are only a couple reasons why you would want developer points. First, is VIP. It's debatable whether the perks are worth it. To the occasional vacationer, I'd say thy were not. If you have large family gathers where you would need multiple rooms, or you want unlimited house keeping credits, additional guest certs, or some of the other perks, it might be worth it to you. The cost of VIP is not worth those perks since I would rarely use them. Supposedly they are eventually going to take away the cancel rebook game that people use to get reservations super cheap point wise. Again, not really worth the extra 70k (or more) and the additional monthly maintenance fees. Second, if you want to go to ClubPass locations (Worldmark resorts). If you want to do that, you would be better off buying a WorldMark contract on eBay. I think eBay is the best bet for the majority of vacationers. If you vacation a one or two times a year and don't need multiple rooms eBay will get you the most bang for your buck. Good job on doing your research so soon after the sale. Not many people think to do that.

    I think you did the right thing. I went to one once fully aware I was not buying but to get the free week. Holy moly are they slimy people. I went fully prepared with my purchase agreements, receipts, and everything else. The guy asked how many were there just for the free week. Everyone raised there hand. He then asked how many are buying. No one raised there hand. Went into his spiel and I feel sorry for the uneducated that were there. There were 6 parties. We were the ONLY ones that didn't get suckered in. The ones that did have no way to finance the purchase and no way to afford the MFs. Only one of the groups were at our resort (there were 3 Wyndham's in the area). While having a cocktail at the bar, the one guy came up to me to talk about it. He told me his family bought in. They conned him into 500,000 points for some odd $75,000. I spit up some of my drink and we started talking. He asked why I didn't buy. I told him I rented a 2BR unit for just over $400 for the week. His family paid 2x that for 3 night (Fri - Mon trip).

    To make a long story short, they went back the next morning to rescind. First, he couldn't understand how it was about $600/month for the loan and another about $200/month in maintenance fees. He insisted that the 500,000 points were free. I told him he'd be wise to contact a local attorney to make sure he got out of it properly.

    HELP! Can someone confirm the address to which to send my rescission letter? My Wyndham contract says I have 7 days to rescind, but gives no information on how to do so. It is now the LAST Day of my rescission period, so I am panicking a little. I have the letter mostly written and I am ready to run to the post office to send certified mail, return receipt requested. But I need an address (and any other requirements detailed)!! I see a Las Vegas address within this thread, but my contract says that Wyndham Vacation Resorts is in Orlando (6277 Sea Harbor Drive). I'll send to both addresses if I don't see an answer here quickly. Thank you!!

    Send to both! Send certified mail now! Needs to be postmarked today. If it's to late for USPS then send UPS or FedEx.

    Resale is definitely a great way to go, but even doing resale, please do your research first. Find out what you want before you buy. There are also poor resale purchases. Learn a lot here and ask a lot of questions and you will do fine.
