"The Standard Reservation period for an internal Wyndham reservation begins the first day of the month that is ten months prior to check-in"
The SRP begins exactly 10 months in advance by date. Example, if I want to check in on December 22, the SRP begins on February 22 at midnight.
"A member taking advantage of the prime time season is required to either check-in or check-out on the resort’s designated check-in day(s)."
This is no longer true except at a very small number of legacy resorts. Check-ins can be on any day of the week.
"Wyndham Reservation website and/or Member resource website can be found at the following web address: www.wyndhamvacationresorts.com."
Although that website redirects to the current website, the direct URL for the owner website is now clubwyndham.wyndhamdestinations.com.
"On the first page, bottom left, of that website there are “Resort Specials”..."
This is now in the menu structure, "Deals and Offers" then "Owner Travel Deals." It's not specifically only 6 weeks out, and the percent off can be as high as 50% (but typically less), so I'd probably leave that part out and simply refer to them as "last-minute"
"You should conserve transactions by doing more than one on the same business day."
This is no longer true. Also, any reservations done online are now free of charge even if the allocation of RTs is depleted, but phone reservations done after that point are charged $39. (Prior to being made free during the last year or so, online reservation transactions were $19.)
So many changes. I'm using underlines for text I've added, along with strikethroughs, because there are changes throughout this section.
"As a member of Club WyndhamSM Plus and regardless of how you obtained your points you are provided with Housekeeping Credits (HC) at the start of every Use Year to use when making your reservations
or when depositing points with RCI® or II
. Wyndham gives you one credit for each
70,000 points allocated to you each Use Year. Housekeeping Credits or “Maid” Credits are deducted from your Wyndham account at the time you confirm a reservation
or when you deposit points with your assigned exchange company
The credits required for a reservation or deposit is determined by the size of the unit and the length of stay. Each reservation, regardless of length, uses one housekeeping credit.
Depending on the way you choose to vacation, you may find that you have enough credits for your entire Use Year.
However, IF you take several small vacations in a given Use Year; more “Maid Credits” are required, and IF you use all the credits available to you during your Use Year, you will be required to purchase additional credits if needed.
If you deposit points for an exchange using your assigned exchange company, the appropriate number of credits is taken from your Housekeeping Credit allotment for 7-nights in the size unit represented by the points deposited.
Example: A deposit of 28,000 points with your exchange company or a reservation through Wyndham for a studio unit requires 28 credits. When booking a reservation during the Express Reservation window you have the option to borrow credits (HCs) from the next Use Year. HCs cannot be used to request additional daily cleanings during a stay.
If you need an additional HC
to make a reservation, you can purchase
from Wyndham at a current cost of
Notice in the chart below that IF you stay in a 1-BR Unit at a resort for just two nights the deduction from your credits will be 63. But, if you stay in a 1-BR for 7-nights the deduction is also 63 credits
. Note that regardless of whether you stay 2 nights or 14, in a studio or a 4 bedroom unit, each reservation requires one housekeeping credit.
If you take a lot of short vacations you can use up your credits quickly."
[and then omit the chart]
"During the Standard Reservation window, an owner of Wyndham points that does not have enough points to complete an internal reservation can exercise their option to rent additional points for $
per thousand. However, that option to rent during that window allows for the rental of just enough points to complete a portion of the last night’s stay. If you are attempting to confirm an “Express Reservation” in the 90 day reservation window before check-in, you are allowed to rent as many additional points as you need for that vacation up to the total amount of points that you own.
The Wyndham fee for renting during the Express window drops to $8 per thousand for on-line transactions. The regular cost to rent points is $10 per thousand.
I'm going to submit this and keep reading, just to keep this post from getting too long.
