ORLANDO, Fla. (April 21, 2014) – Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), the world’s largest vacation ownership company and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE:WYN), continues to drive excitement for the Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes with two new winners. Owners Phillis Scott and Lionel and Norma Theriot attended prize presentations at WVO resorts, showcasing the cars won in the sweepstakes. Ms. Scott, who has been an owner since 2013, qualified to win the fifth car in the sweepstakes — a 2014 Infiniti JX35 — during an owner update at Wyndham Grand Desert in October 2013; Lionel and Norma Theriot, owners since 1996, qualified for the sixth car — a Cadillac Escalade — during an owner update at Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort in December 2013.
“My favorite part of owning with Wyndham is basically I can go anytime I want to,” said Phillis Scott. “I love the people, I love the resorts; when I come to Wyndham, I’m at home.”
In her short time of vacation ownership, Ms. Scott has learned the many benefits of ownership and has a wish list of resorts she would like to visit. The Theriots, having been owners for more than 17 years, are veterans at using their points and have visited numerous resorts across the country.
“Before we retired, we would joke that work was getting in the way of our vacations,” said Norma Theriot. “We started purchasing more points every time we’d go somewhere,” added Lionel Theriot. “The plan was when we retired, we wanted to have enough points so we could travel all the time, and it’s working out great!”
“I am so pleased we could present both Ms. Scott and the Theriots with these luxury cars as part of the Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes. Every day is a great day to give away a car, but being able to bring these valued owners to our resorts and treat them to the Wyndham experience they’ve come to love is truly gratifying,” said Jeff Myers, WVO’s chief sales & marketing officer. “Both Ms. Scott and the Theriots ideally maximize their ownership by spending time with family and taking advantage of the great locations of our world-class resorts.”
As a part of its Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes, the Company gave away one luxury car every other month throughout 2013. Wyndham recently announced that the sweepstakes was extended through 2014, giving four more winners that chance to win a luxury car worth up to $50,000. Owners and guests are automatically entered in the sweepstakes when they attend a sales presentation or owner update at a participating resort. Previous winners of the sweepstakes were George and Judy Maykowskyj of Colbert, Wash.; Chris and Melissa Todd of Humboldt, Tenn.; Wydea Winters of Charlotte, N.C.; and Hollis Cox of Iberville, La.
