Do some owners get free HGVC guest certificates?

Do some owners get free guest certificates, and some have to pay for them, depending on the type of ownership? (Developer vs resale?)

I think Elite Preimere owners get free guest certificates.

Buying from the developer doesn't give free guest certificates for any other level of ownership.

I believe certain levels of Elite status give you free guest certificate... I am not Elite with HGVC, but it looks like at Elite Premier the transaction fees are waived.

Not sure if if you can get the certificate for free at anything less.. I know I have to pay...

For the amount of premium you would have to pay... you would be long gone from this earth way before you recouped your "investment"

I'm not Elite but my ownership is in a Trust and they've given them to me for free before.

I have first level of Elite and I DO NOT get free GCs. Perhaps at higher levels.

Guest certificates are complimentary for all owners when its a home week booking (your actual owned season/type).
