below is a posting on the Forums concerning Wyndham rental, transferred and PIC points that might be of interest here on TUG. Kendra

Sandy,
I do not think we want to distiguish between rented from Wyndham or another member. We do it then they may do it. At the present time they are all treated a Regular points. You use to be able to transfer PIC points as I pointed out to VC several times when challanged that the directory said you get regular points and it say you can transfer regular points. HOWEVER they have change the directory to say you get PIC points now.

They still say you can transfer regular points and you can credit pool regular points. SO show me where it says you can not credit pull the transfered points.

Glenn - too late!!! It sure looks to me like Wyndham is already making the 'distinction' between THEIR rented points and OUR rented (transferred) points. With that in mind, I would agree with Sandy - we need new terms and I propose, in agreement with Sandy - rented points and transferred points.

As to the question you raised about PIC points being transferred - below is a string of emails between myself and Deanne Gabel on this topic - read from the bottom up for the correct sequential order. And again - no other explanation of what/how/when the changes were made or any 'FairShare Plus governing documents' to back up the change that effected me in about a week's time (as in on Monday I could do it and on Friday I couldn't!!!!) I will also post this thread under the PIC section of the Forums.

I also believe this 'thread' about Wyndham changing rules/regs indiscriminately is 'too large' a topic to be buried here (rental points in credit pool) and will post this thread in Owner's Den - Wyn/FF Points Ownership Forum where more owners might see it. Kendra

At this time, your request for an exception to rent your PIC points has not been granted. Elaine

You did indeed advise me on Feb 12th in reply to my Feb. 1 inquiry (and Feb. 7 follow-up with note about Joe) that "On page 14 of the directory, it states that only Regular Use Year Points are eligible for transfer. There haven’t been any changes, as this has been the rule for several years"
Continuing a discussion of what the directory says - On page 312 it states "These (PIC) points combine with your regular FairShare Plus points for even more vacation options!" I know they can't be used to pay maintenance fees, placed in the Credit Pool or used to make a ARP reservation but there is no written restriction that they can't be transferred.

Before July 15, 2006 and up until a few weeks ago I have had no difficulty in transferring PIC points. Would you consider an 'exception' to this rule until it can be more clearly defined in the next directory? I have committed points to a nonVIP who has already paid and I would have transferred the points to her weeks ago if I weren't having so many delays with RCI crediting me with the proper deposits.

I do not believe that many members will be/are affected by this particular rule and you might consider including PIC points to be transferable as it will make less work for the Wyndham VCs. If PIC points can't be transferred, then VCs will make guest reservations using VIP Platinum benefits for those who 'rent' the points from those of us who provide them. This would require a heavier workload for your VCs and, or course, me as of the 'rentees'.

Did not know that as I have done this several times in the past. I have made commitments and received payment already (and have transferred some PIC points already). Can an exception be made on my points for this year? Kendra

Thanks - I had dinner tonight with Joe and he said that during all the time he was in charge of the Margate call center he never heard that you couldn't transfer PIC weeks. I don't believe that the directory makes a determination one way or the other. Kendra

Tell me it isn't so!!!! I'm making arrangements to transfer PIC points to another Wyn owner and I'm being told it can't be done!!! I've done it several times before, what happened? Where does it say we can't and if not, since when????

Somebody is posting on the yahoo group that they want to rent Wyn points and can make arrangements to transfer cancelled and/or limited points. If those can be transferred, why not PICs?
