I'm so confused. I am shopping for non-deeded points. Saw this offer for 1 time price for annual points?? What's the downside. Seems too good to be true.

I'm shopping for a non-deeded points plan. Any advice appreciated.


This is a points manager. You are buying into the ability to leverage access to a large pool of points with VIP benefits. My jury is still out on this, but WinPointVIP is well regarded by others here.

Its a legit offer

Just know you are dealing with a guy (not Wyndham) that gets points form owners that have too many and uses these points to make reservations for his customers (members)

I am one of the points suppliers to WinPointVip. If you buy into the program it is quite possible that your reservations will be made in one of my accounts

In my opinion, you are taking something you don't have to pay for, and paying for it. With these points managers, you still have to pay for the points you use, but on top you also are paying a buy-in fee. You can rent directly from a Platinum owner and accomplish the same things without the buy-in.

You are getting ACCESS to the points only. You still have to pay as you go for the points you use.

I believe the current cost for the points is an additional $6 per thousand that you use up to your annual allotment.
