Please help!!

Ok, so my husband and I got caught up in the time share scheme in order to get a free helicopter ride in Vegas a couple weeks ago. After going back to the hotel, we realized we signed up for a horrible deal, and we really can't afford it right now. I read the contract and followed the rules by sending a letter by mail to the rescission department in order to cancel my contract within the 5 day window. It was postmarked on day 4, certified mail, and now it was returned to me! It never made it to the destination. It says that it is "not deliverable as addressed, unable to forward." The address on the envelope is exactly what was in my contract. I have no idea what to do now to get out of this. Do I have any other options?

For clarification: Is the "Discovery Program" you reference in the post title the "rental before buying" trial program? That is, is this a program that does not involve a real-estate transaction and has no ongoing obligation for dues/maintenance fees?

This post, #9, has the same POBox but different digit in the zip code. I wouldn't know what to recommend at this point.


Maybe stick the envelope in another envelope, include a letter to show the postmarked date, certify it and mail it. Can't hurt.

Agree with above, when I did a google search I came up with a different zip code (one digit different than that shown in the attachment photo)

P.O. Box 690189
Orlando FL 32869-0189

Yes, it is a 2 year trial program. 1 time purchase price and no ongoing fees or maintenance.

You didn't buy anything to rescind. Sorry you bought something you don't feel able to afford, but really, people do that all the time. That helicopter ride wasn't 'free' after all, so chock it up to 'experience'.

Thats the original zip code I wrote but the post office corrected it to 8.

I would just put that envelope into another envelope and send the whole thing again. They will be able to see that you send in the 5 day window. I don't know if they will process it, but it looks reasonable to me.

As far as what the others are saying that you didn't buy anything to rescind, I don't know anything about that or what you bought. It looks like they gave you an out since you have instructions on how to cancel the purchase. If it's not something that you can cancel (you didn't buy a timeshare, only a vacation), you probably will just be out the money, but I am not familiar with why they would sell you a vacation and give you instructions on how to cancel it if you can't cancel it.

You may want to send an email to rescissions.wvr@wyn.com and explain the situation. I attached two Wyndham rescission instructions or tried to.

Nice to know that the PO Box in Orlando still being used as a Wyndham rescission address.

Even if you can’t rescind, you simply overpaid by 100 percent. Wyndham points are $6/1k, but the discovery program is $12/1k.

mind sharing how much you’d save with rescission?

Orlando FL 32869-0189 may still be a correct Wyndham rescission address, apparently.

I would save $2000 for 12,000 credits.

Note, that this post is NOT about rescinding Wyndham Points, but Worldmark credits. Two different systems and two different costs.

That's what I ended up doing, mailing the original unsealed envelope again. We'll see what happens.
