Maybe I missed it, but my recollection is that Monday Madness was 8 cents a credit. Just now on the WorldMark website, it shows that MM is now 9 cents a credit. Am I mistaken, or is this new?

The change was announced about a month ago, effective on Jan 1.

In addition, the following developer-sponsored programs will be increasing on Jan. 1, 2020:
  1. Fax Time will increase from $.08 per credit to $.10 per credit for reservations booked once in red season every 5 years and unlimited reservations during white and blue seasons.
  2. Monday Madness will increase from $.08/credit to $.09/credit when booking online, and from $.09/credit to $.10/credit for reservations booked through the Vacation Planning Center.
As I mentioned in another post, Wyndham has probably recognized that out their credits at rates that are a better value than owning is not helping sales.

Thanks, Eric. It's good to know I was right. I'm finding MM is one of the biggest pieces of my WorldMark ownership that I'm using - a lot. Six of the seven most recent/future reservations are all booked through MM. My 2019 use year is half over, I'm booked out past my 2020 anniversary date (August), and I still have 10K of my 12K credit allowance for 2019 remaining. I fully expect to have those credits roll over.

The way Wyndham is moving things around ... I suspect cash bookings in red season are going to get far less appealing on a go forward basis...

Mainly $80 nightly minimum for IS, MM, and other special offers.
