    Wyndham is pushing for me to purchase another 34,000 points which will move us to VIP status Emerald/Advantage (300,000) under the new tier system which implements the end of next 2020. No one can give me a list of VIP benefits. We were VIP the first 2 1/2 years as new owners as part of our new purchase. In the last 3 years, since it has been gone, I haven't noticed any loss. Always was a rule when we tried to use VIP, don't apply, upgrades for this unit don't apply, etc. Can someone other than a Wyndham sales person explain the pros and cons?

    No one can really answer what the new VIP will actually be because I think even Wyndham has not made it official. There was a post on which someone had a picture of a VIP flyer with some new tiers. One can guess that the new 300k level will have lesser benefits than the current Silver level. Perhaps only 15% discounts, a shorter upgrade window, etc. Definitely no unlimited housekeeping.

    I believe that to qualify for the new level a purchase was going to be required after the program is rolled out and those already at 300k points would not be automatically given VIP status. So it would do you no good to purchase now anyway.

    I got the impression that is was post-roll out as well. But then things aren't going to be said and done until it gets rolled out, and even then there is no telling when the winds of change will breeze through again.

    They showed us the sheet. It was going to be called the Emerald level but they already changed it to Advantage. He stated and the sheet showed that the point level was 300,000-499,000 and all those in that point spread would have the new VIP formly Silver status. He did say that unlimited housekeeping was going to be probably grandfathered in to current 400,000 VIPs. 15% discount will be the new VIP discount. Not sure the VIP status is worth $9500 for 34,000 more points.
