Well, after some consideration and frustration with Wyndham, I have to pay attorneys to get out of my Club Wyndham Access contracts. I have been a Wyndham member for the past 7 years and was enjoying my vacations, right up to the point being sold on Club Wyndham Access (CWA), which really isn't a club and doesn't provide access. The promise was, 'VIP' club membership (priority service), Advanced Priority Reservations (greater availabilty) and access to Worldmark properties. As I was approaching Platinum level, I fell for it. They sold me 461K points for $65K and a month later told me I needed another 105K points for $14K. Between mortgage payments and maintenance fees, I was spending $2K per month for a service that provided nothing above what I had when I owned 105K. Then, they changed the website in January, providing fewer options, no visibility on points use, no means of verifying balance due and directed me to a 'VIP' telephone line, where I waited 40-50 minutes on hold to discover what I wanted wasn't available. This action will cost me all 2 million points (from Wyndham and secondary market) but will save me $23K per year.
