Hi,

Has anyone successfully transferred their contract from one home resort to another? I hit a brick wall with TPI when Wyndham Waikiki Beach Walk cancelled their affiliation with Trading Places and cancelled our premier access membership. We get 168k points alternating even years and prior to 2020 I was able to book a week at any of the premiere access resorts (Beachwalk dropped out, but Mauna Loa worked fine) and deposit it into TPI, which gave me an exchange + bonus week. This allowed us to travel every year despite our low points. Well it all went south when I tried to make my deposit in January and Wyndham denied it. After countless calls to both TPI and Wyndham, the gal I spoke with in customer service at Wyndham this morning said that it may be possible to transfer the contract (home resort) to a TPI friendly resort like the Wyndham Mauna Loa. Of course, I could be trying to shoot a moving target if Wyndham Mauna Loa cancels their affiliation with TPI. And God only knows what the costs are.

I'd like to explore all options before accepting the fact that we'll only be able to travel every other year through Wyndham.

Thanks in advance,
Bonnie

The price of changing your contract probably wouldn't be worth the bonus week. Also, as you said affiliation changes. Your best bet would probably be to just pick up a resale odd year contract.

Here, Timeshare nation, Ebay. I always see 168,000 odd Bonnet creek if you need ARP for Orlando.

Thanks so much! If I purchase 168k at Bonnet Creek, can I use those points at the Mauna Loa on the Big Island, which is 154k for a 1 bedroom? Sorry if it's a stupid question, but since we only own at Waikiki Beach Walk, using points for other locations in Hawaii were never an issue. I guess the question is does it matter where your home resort is? Thanks again.

Points are points at 10 months out. If you don't come to FL, maybe look for a low MF odd contract. This one is for Hawaii. There are tons of nice Wyndham resorts near you in CA that you can also use the points for. Indio looks beautiful and they have a lazy river.
