I just went to a sales presentation with my Dad (I manage my Dad's account). We are VIP Platinum, all points bought from developer.

All of our points are in 1 use year. Sales rep says if we buy a contract with a different use year, we can roll our cancelled points into the new use year (using cancel / rebook - points then go into the current use year).

If we buy a new contract, with a different use year, the sales rep is saying that in order for the new points to be VIP eligible, they have to be developer (not resale) points.

That is the critical point here, is use year factored in when determining VIP benefits? Do all points have to be from the same use year? If we have 1M in use year 1 and 128K in use year 2, do we get the VIP benefits on the 128K? Sales rep is saying only if the 128K are bought from them and that resale will really mess things up.

Not sure on this one. The postings on various threads indicate that if you are VIP Platinum with VIP eligable points than addtional points regardless of source would have the discount. I am not sure how different use years count for determining the benifits. I checked my ownership summary and each use year has a seperate line entry.

You don't have different USE YEARs and you don't have resale points --- WHY are you posting an answer you have not understanding of (and admitting such) to this thread? At least, I know and don't post answers to threads on Hilton or Marriott or Starwood, etc.

Sandi Bo (the OP) is an experience Wyndham person who is seeking a difinitive answer.

Thanks for the attack post. By the way you are wrong, I do have multiple use years. It nice to see that attempted censurship is alive and well on TUG.

As of this date, the Use Year rollover does work with regular VIP and resale points. I have Use Year points Jan and Oct, but the advantage is only good for reservations cancelled after Oct 1 as my Use Year changes to the current (like 2012) on Jan 1. Reservations cancelled after Oct 1, those points go onto my Oct 2011 USE YEAR.

Hope this helps.

PS I would get a July USE YEAR to get a broader range (6 months) of Use Year extension.

Thanks, this is what I needed.

So almost everything he was saying is true? Only correction is I don't have to buy developer points. :)

We have an Apr 1 use year (all 1M are developer points). What I want to do is purchase resale points with a differerent use year, preferrably Oct 1 (as Linda suggested to give the broader range).

That's my plan. Thanks all.
