Beware Wyndham Resorts Calls

The last time my family spent a night at a Wyndham Hotel, it was to visit my mother-in-law.  It wasn’t the best experience, but it wasn’t bad.  The room was clean, but the heating didn’t work well in the room.  I didn’t expect to receive a phone call four months later from Wyndham Resorts, because we had spent a night at one of the hotels.

The call started out alright.  She was offering a four day, 3 night stay at a really good price.  She also added a free one night stay anywhere we wanted, since the locations for the other deal weren’t in-state.  Just when she had me hooked, she pulled the rug out from under me.  She asked some questions to see if I qualified for the deal.  It went well, until she got to the income.  My family doesn’t qualify because we don’t have a high enough income.

I know how these things usually work.  You stay at a resort for a big discount, or for free, and they ask you to attend a workshop/meeting about buying into their timeshare.  Sometimes it is worth it, sometimes it isn’t.  As soon as I told her no to the income amount, she ended the call.  Sorry, but you can’t participate in this offer.  Click.

Oh well.  That’s life.
