Club Wyndham

Posted 06-12-2012 at 02:55 PM by Krista

My husband and I recently enjoyed a three day weekend in Panama City at the beach with our girls. My family didn’t do many vacations when I was growing up, and the ones we did were always at the beach. (Unless visiting grandparents count? Nah, I didn’t think so!) As such, I am a huge beach lover and have really been wanting to experience it with my girls. We did go last year, and my husband transformed from a sand hater to a beach lover! What an unexpected surprise that was!

We were really excited to go this year. We had an absolute blast. The girls played in the sand and my husband enjoyed taking my oldest daughter out into the water to tackle waves together. It was her absolute favorite part of the vacation.

On Monday when we loaded up the car to go home we were approached by a guy inviting us to a presentation for Wyndham resorts. They promised a free three day, two night stay and a hundred dollars. We had talked about bringing the girls back soon, so we agreed. Though we walked in with absolutely no intention to buy anything, we left with what our agent called a “starter vacation home.”

I won’t bore you with all the details, but basically each year we get a certain amount of points that can be redeemed for hotel stays, car rentals, even plane tickets. The best thing, in my opinion, is that we get a deed to our property and it can pass down to our children, so in this way we will be able to help them have vacations.

    Wyndham is really great. They will call you every trip to try to sell you something so we just politely tell them on the first call that we are not interested in any more points. Being able to use a huge number of resorts and then even the RCI ones is amazing. Everywhere we have stayed has been nice. The timeshare is actually my parents but they let us use our points just like you plan to do with your kids one day. You are right about the deed. I think Wydham is the only one who does that and it is a big deal.
