I’ll tell you why. On April 30th, I started the process of giving away my Branson contract. I had to get an estoppel which took 20 days because they screwed up the first one. We then filled out a sales agreement. Once that was done, LT collected payment from the buyer for closing and transfer fees. Paperwork was filled out and completed. The paperwork got mailed and Wyndham received it on June 24th. When you account for the time we started the process, we are in week 13. It’s been with a Wyndham for 5 weeks and I expect at minimum it will be another 3-5 more weeks. So that’s 4-5 months worth of maintenance fees I’m paying while waiting for the process to complete. So even though the buyer took care of the fees, in the end, it will have cost me $885 in maintenance fees on points I cannot use.I did PM the OP but still wondering. I understand the OP was asking for fastest way to get rid of their points. I also understand that possibly would be the Ovation program. I also wonder why the owner doesn't just give the points away on TUG and have the buyer pay all transfer costs? It's not very tough to post on the bargain board and I'm positive there would be takers. It seems to me why would you give something back to Wyndham that you paid for and have the company profit off it, when you could give the points to someone individual who would benefit from them so very much. IMO the easiest way seems to be what our society is leaning towards instead of the best way.
As I detailed above, Ovations took less then 4 weeks from start to finish for my Ocean Boulevard contract. If I would have done Ovations with Branson, I’d be done by now and I would have only spent $177 in maintenance fees. $354 if they were running slow and it went more then 4 weeks. I would have saved at least over $500 if I would have went with Ovations instead of giving it away.
