I purchased a TS at Wyndham a couple weeks ago. They signed me up for a Vacation Club Credit Account for the down payment. I sent the rescission letter in time (thanks TUG) and they have refunded the down payment to the Vacation Club Credit Account. Here's my question - is this credit account able to be used to buy resale? Or is it basically useless?

I think you know the answer... worthless. Actually a value trap, because while you could use it to buy a "resale account" thru Wyndham, you would be overpaying on a value basis.

To give some context, I always tell friends to never buy a timeshare unless they talk to me first. I have three examples (one friend, two family members), where this did not help because they bought a "resale contract" from Wyndham.

Thanks, I was afraid of that. Yeah, by saying buy resale, I meant off of eBay, or here, etc., not through Wyndham. Any recommendations on whether to buy from SMTN, ebay, myresortnetwork.com, or other?

I purchased a 5000 point Worldmark from them at a zero cost.

Can I ask how you get the Timeshare Nation bulk listing? I have been to their website but did not see an option for this and I find their website not very user friendly - lacking in search options and it does not appear to be as up to date as your list. Thanks!
I am not sure but this list will update.

Timeshare Nation maintains the bulk inventory listing on Google docs. It’s updated every week or two. There may be a no public version that the exit companies or developers taking trade ins update more frequently; you can see where the weeks are coming from by the inventory numbers.

When the list updates and you see something you like, make note of the Portfolio number. There is a contact us page. Fill that out and in the comments, mention what you are inquiring about, and include the portfolio number. Its easier to do it that way then search for the listing on their website.
