I am VIP with resale and voted YES. I purchased resale with the understanding that at any time the contracts may not receive VIP benefits. They are my best contracts, maintenance fee-wise. I book a lot of reservations more than 60 days out and don't receive VIP benefits for what I book. I'm can't imagine Wyndham is doing this for me - but it's much simple to manage the way it is currently set up. If I book spring break, thanksgiving, summer at the beach, Christmas - I have to plan to pay full points and no discounts. Managing my reservations using developer points versus resale would be a pain in the a**, but doable. I think ya'll are worrying way too much about something that really doesn't matter that much. Maybe that is why Wyndham leaves things as they are - likely in the end not a significant difference in availability or points usage. And I still say they need the revenue (maintenance fees that are being paid). Pre-voyager, with cancel/rebook in play - it was a whole different ballgame.
