I need some advice on the value of VIP status with Wyndham. I originally bought 115,00 points direct from Wyndham at La Cascada last year but when I came home and did some research here and other places I recinded my purchase in the alloted time. I then went to E-bay and bought 154,000 points re-sale for a few dollars and I love it! We just used some of those points at La Cascada last week. One of the member services staff was reviewing my file and said that my points are listed with Wyndham as "Not Re-Sale" which means they could be applied toward VIP status. After a long discussion/sales pitch, they convinced me to buy an additional 154,00 points from them for around $21,000 and gave me VIP status. Now, just like last year I am wondering if this is worth it or not. They said that VIP eligibility is going up to 400,000 points in October. They also said that Wyndham rarely makes the mistake of mis-coding the points status in their system and that this was a rare opportunity that I should take advantage of. I don't know if this is a common "mistake" or not. I have a few days to recind this new purchase. Has anyone else encountered this or have any advice for me? I don't know if VIP status is worth $21,000.
