    well, here we are at Bonnet Creek, our home resort. Checked in and SWMBO signed us up for the 'owners update' right away as we had an hour or so to kill. Must say I was pleasantly surprised. In and out in just over an hour including lunch (Pasta not a nasty sandwich) We were given the attached card and they kept to it.

    The salesman initially mentioned the 400k points that would bring us to the next ownership level - that wasn't going to happen. He then spent 15 minutes asking if we wanted to see a deal that could change everything - instead of just showing us the deal that could change everything :rolleyes:

    He wanted us to buy 84k points - the smallest amount he could sell. He did say if we bought the 84k points, that owning them would allow all our other points to be treated as developer points. now, we aren't going to buy!!! BUT

    Has anyone else heard such a pitch? and, what would that actually do? it would give us just over 400k points.

    I will say that they seem <seem> to be becoming a little more responsive to their owners. Again, note the uploaded pic. Also they were offering discounted Disney tickets - and the $100 more for the presentation actually makes a pretty good deal. They were also much much less pushy at the 'parking pass' desk.

    any thoughts?

    I was there end of Oct and was treated rudely once I said that I don't have any developer points and all six deeds I own are resale.

    It doesn't promise they wouldn't lie to you.

    If that were true, they'd be selling a lot of 84K contracts. Also, why wouldn't that be a feature of the 400K contract?

    Funny that the paper they gave you has the Worldmark logo on it. We are WM owners, exchanged in to BC through RCI last year and went to (or tried to) their presentation. They sent us out because they couldn't find anyone who knew anything about WM. They finally had us meet with someone whose solution was that we should trade our WM credits (and some $ of course) in for Wyndham points. Yeah, that's a good deal...

    The salesman parse their words very carefully so they are no overtly lying.
    If the 84K points costs roughly $16K-$20K, there is no way they will absorb your >300K points to give you all developer points.
    I personally wouldn't waste the time trying to get them to write down a formal offer letter, but you could do that to smoke this out.
