Our Verdict

Keep in mind COVID-19 and I never recommend attending these presentations if you struggle to stay firm/say no. Normally you can get a better than standard offer by calling in, we talk about this process here (sadly no Wyndham datapoints yet).

I attended one of these and will gladly attend all that they let me with packages like this. It was very easy to say no simply because it was a terrible offer.

The interest rate was a non-negotiable 16.99%.

LOL

How anyone is pressured into saying yes to that, I don’t understand. That’s absurd.

Gone to a presentation with Hilton and also Sheraton, with Hilton being the Softer Sell. I will say , call instead of ordering this online. I booked another presentation last year and calling in got an even better offer, same with the two I have attended before. 3 nights became 4 nights, asked for more points and they negotiated and added more.

I’ve done dozens of timeshare presentations over the years (no, never bought a timeshare at one) and the Wyndham salespeople are *very* persuasive. I’ve never caught them lying, as Westgate does, but the Wyndham folks really know how to sell. It’s a much harder sell than you’d get with Marriott, Hilton, or Sheraton.

Also, if you don’t listen to the whole sales pitch, they can charge you rack rate for the room. (Here, I’m talking about the discounted 3-night stay mentioned in this article’s title, not about a week from RCI.)

Here again someone is touching on presentation, which is never a DP for sane people. Kindly keep on-topic of getting signed-up for highest gift. Presentation lasts 120min, a 1-week certificate lasts 118 hours.

Everything is decided prior to presentation. Nothing is decided at presentation. So nobody needs to hear what you did at presentation. We do need to hear EXACTLY what you did prior to presentation

Just did this. Will be the 2nd such offer from Wyndham I’ve done; first was NYC 2 years ago. Did a similar Hilton deal in December.

Was able to negotiate a reduced $179 fee, the 15k points and a $100 AmEx GC. I wasn’t aware that there might be a “1 week free” option else I think I’d have asked for that.

1-week certificate is a standard gift to attend Wyndham presentation, since Wyndham owns RCI. Once certificate in hand, you basically pick any week from “RCI exchange listings” like you’re RCI member. Members would still pay Exchange fee+points for such week – you don’t!! Plus you’ve never bought anything, and never paid anything to attend presentation; it’s weird to hear you just paid a $179 fee to book yourself into presentation. If you pass thru any town with (still open post-lockdown) Wyndham SALES OFFICE, you can walk into presentation against their promise (preferably in writing) of 1-week free certificate.

Some people let certificate expire worthless (after 365 days of holding it), because free certificate is only bookable within 30 days of travel. This is your only disadvantage vs. any RCI owner, who may snap your desired week months in advance – before you try to book “last-minute”.

Competitor “Diamond Resorts International” also offer 1-week certificate to attend free presentation; but their resort certificates are full of fees – Wyndham’s has $0.00 before, during or after. Diamond Resorts, however, add a “cruise for two” on top; so throw away DRI resort certificate and only use their cruise certificate (good for booking a year out, for cruises as far as another 2 years out!)

Hilton Grand Vacations used to offer free 4-nights for presentation. Since Covid, that gift whittled down to like 2 nights. I wouldn’t attend for such low compensation.

BlueGreen seem to only offer 4-nights.

Holiday Inn vacations probably only offer 3 nights.

Marriott hardly offers any nights. Nor do SPG (Sheraton), who just pay you $150 cash at most

With all due respect to anyone who’ll post into this topic REHASHING PRESENTATION: this topic has zero to do with PURCHASE OF TIMESHARE/VACATION CLUB. This topic is about a particular one-time REWARD IN YOUR HAND that costs $0.00 out-of-pocket.

So the only problem with TITLE OFFER: Wyndham (in FL, NYC, Vegas + elsewhere) has always offered “1-week free certificate for $0.00, to be used world-wide within 1 year” to come to a presentation. Why accept a gift offer as described??

I’m a pretty polite person so when I did my first timeshare pitch deal (with SPG), I felt so awkward just giving a firm no and trying to be polite about it. Because of that the two hour presentation turned into 3.5 hours of hard selling.

Lesson learned for next time: I’m not saying to be a douchebag up front, but definitely set a timer for the agreed-upon timeframe, and when that timer goes off, don’t be afraid to stand up, tell them that your final answer is no, and that you have fulfilled your obligation to attend for x amount of time and you would like to leave.

Fair, especially if you don’t go in with a firm “no” in mind.

I think I’ve been to two or three meetings as an adult/HoH, and never really worried about “buying” at any point in time. Also went to 1-2 as a kid, with parent which might’ve helped train me for the “never say yes”.

If you’ll never buy their speal, can save time without reading.
