Maybe of those who reported here but I have heard of others (unconfirmed).You are the first and only to report the free usage with resale when given back. My speculation is that perhaps they were coded as retail but it never hurts to ask when inquiring about certified exit.
Here are some possible reasons I think it worked out for us:
We purchased our resale units as pure weeks before the resort was bought by Fairfield.
Maybe they gave us all retail status when they took over.
A few years later they offered to convert it to points for a small fee (if I remember correctly under $1000 for two weeks), which we did,
Maybe the point conversion changed us to retail status.
I bet many longtime owners, who have been through many changes of Fairfield/ Wyndham, weeks/points may not know what their unit is coded as.
I know I didn't, and actually still don't know what it was coded...
Even the Ovation team member couldn't explain why, but recommended to grab it before it goes away.
When I contacted them about 3 months later to make sure everything was fine they said I was lucky as they were no longer offering the 3 years usage to anyone at my old resort.
I am just trying to point out that from my experience, there are no hard and fast rules... they seem to change at the will of Wyndham,
So again ask for everything and if you like the offer... grab it. If not, wait a few months and try again.
