Just received an e-mail saying VIP Gold and Platinum privileges will include being able to read magazines. Bet you'll have to go to their update to receive it!

Hold the presses.

Through VIPeek you'll have the world at your fingertips while on vacation in 2016. Beginning Jan. 11, we'll test a new service called PressReader* at select resorts — giving CLUB WYNDHAM® Gold and Platinum Owners complimentary cover-to-cover access to more than 4,500 electronic periodicals in 60 languages.

PressReader makes staying connected easier and greener with:

• Downloadable content to save for later
• Publications that span all generations and genres
• Audio narration
• News from your hometown
• Unique access to a global perspective on world events
• Locally sourced information on your travel destination

Check with Guest Services on your next CLUB WYNDHAM vacation to learn more.

Of course, if you prefer getting a USA TODAY® delivered to your door — you still can. Just let us know as you're checking in, and we'll deliver one to you each morning.

"Ultimately, anyone with even a passing interest in the news should give PressReader a try. If you're a new user, you can download seven current-day issues of any paper free of charge. After that, each issue will cost you 99 cents--or $29.95 per month for unlimited access."


Kinda neat I suppose; obviously not worth paying $40,000 or whatever for VIP.
