In analyzing the comments in this thread, there seem to be two primary categories:
1) those that have a lot of points and use a lot of guest confirmations for others
2) those that may or may not have a lot of points but only use guest confirmations for others occasionally, if at all.
The OP and I seem to be in a third category, which is those with aging parents with a lot of points who cannot travel but, in my mother's case, hope to do so once their health improves. We (and I realize the OP's mother passed away ... my sincere condolences ... so she is no longer in the same situation) aren't looking to use GCs for others routinely, but just temporarily until normal usage resumes.
When I joined the Navy, the recruiting slogan was "In the defense of our nation, there can be no second best." The same goes for defending aging parents.
Would I litigate pro bono if Wyndham does something to my mother? Absolutely, like a [insert appropriate expletive here] pit bull. Would it be worth the time I put into it? Perhaps not, but I would certainly put up enough of a fight that it would be very expensive to defend.
But again, I'm looking for help on how to navigate what appears to be a clouded path without poking the bear.
Curious as to how this works. I've Airbnb-ed before but we owned the unit and could set up a multi month calendar for availability. How have ppl done it and are there resources on how to do it properly without triggering the ire of Wyndham? We would only be looking to do a couple weeks per year...
Good for road trips when you just need a night here and there on the way to a resort or a night pre and post cruise. There’s hotels almost everywhere. The foreign ones are nicer. Just need to check reviews first. Some are hit or miss especially along the freeways. Good for air too, gift cards, etc etc. Points pile up fast when using the card especially for MFs. Have to watch too cause i think you only have 5 years to use them up. Not a bad option if you can’t get to use it in a given year cause we all know sometimes stuff happens where you have to cancel best laid plans….
