    Resale Progress

    Hello TUG Community, I am in the process of selling my 2 Wyndham contracts. Aside from the number of calls it took me to define exactly what I owned, it seems like my real estate agent is inexperienced with the forms/contracts involved. -Has anyone else experienced this? -Should a resale...

    CWA bad, CWS good, deeded better, estate planning

    Have meeting in an hour, but got a preview when we checked in about converting CWA contracts to deeded contracts, saving on MF, ARP no good with CWA, deeds are better for estate planning, "everyone's doing it!", and probably some more I'm forgetting. I'll be interested to see what deeds are...

    PIC Plus points vs. CWA points vs. UDI points

    Just left an update where it was explained to me that my points aren't really the best points, and that I needed to pay to "improve them"! I have looked previously and found some information, but are these 3 different types of points treated differently in any way? I have retail, PIC plus, and...

    Worldmark program questions, also as it relates to Wyndham

    We are rescinding on a retail Wyndham CWA purchase we made over the weekend before we discovered this wealth of knowledge. We were interested in Wyndham as we want to travel all over and the link to Worldmark was desirable as we live on the west coast and would want access to the supply of...

    Bought Wyndham CWA retail, still within rescission window, urgent questions!

    My husband and I purchased a Wyndham CWA contract over the weekend, thinking that buying retail offered benefits for long term ownership versus buying resell points. We purchased 126,000 points with 2 year VIP status, received 2 RCI weeks and 174,000 one-time bonus points. We have spent hours in...

    CWA can accounts be merged?

    I am in the process of buying a CWA account (282k) and was wondering if later I wanted to add another CWA account can those two accounts be merged so I would only have one account that I am charged a program fee on? That way I could pick up another resale account but lower my overall yearly cost.

    Needing information about renting units

    We recently went to a CWA sales meeting and learned about renting units to help offset some of the maintenance fees. Basically, we were told to buy units for weekends that will be in high demand, send the information to ExtraHolidays.com (where they keep 40%), and then wait for some money to...

    Wyndham CWA vs deeded property

    We just ‘traded’ our 400,000 points In CWA for a 126,000 additional points and a deed at Grand Desert for $28,000. Thinking we may have been duped yet again. Were told the new Blue Thread offers more rental opportunities and flexibility than CWA. Anyone wanna jump in with any thoughts? We have...
