Dean is absolutely right about the "value" of VIP in Wyndham: it is worth nowhere near what you pay to get it. That's not surprising, because the development/sales arm of the company pays the management arm for the "perks"---and that money has to come from the sales of timeshares. If the perks really were worth even close to what they cost, the development arm would go broke quickly.

One thing to add though:
What this seems to me for me is that I can rent points from him much cheaper than I could own the same points.
This is true only for resorts and times at which inventory is plentiful relative to demand, because those discounts are only available for short-term bookings. Bonnet Creek happens to be such a resort---it's *huge*. But, many others are not, especially during peak or even shoulder seasons.
