These aren't necessarily "Wyndham Vacation Resorts." They are hotels and resorts which are part of the Group RCI exchange program.

We service more than 4 million vacationing families each year by offering Group RCI members and rental customers access to more than 200,000 properties in 100+ countries for specified vacation periods.
Group RCI is a part of Wyndham Worldwide (NYSE: WYN), one of the world’s largest hospitality companies across six continents. Wyndham Worldwide offers customers a vast suite of products and services through a premier portfolio of world-renowned brands.
I don't think that any Wyndham Rewards points could be redeemed** or earned* on these rentals. I'd say that this thread would be better suited for the Hotel Deals forum, but most of the properties do not appear to be well-rated. There are a few exceptions for some places which are in shoulder season or are simply off the beaten track. Pagosa Springs, CO, is nice.
* Correction: Buyers might "earn 5,000 points per qualified stay." I'm not sure if weeks bought from this sale would be "qualified stays," though. Someone else can research that, if they're interested.

So perhaps this should be moved to "Budget Travel" or Mileage Run Hotel Subforum?
In any case, thanks for posting, these are great deals and I wish I could take a week off next month.

**Correction #2: Wyndham Rewards members can redeem points for a gift card to apply towards the cost of Endless Vacation Rentals. (Or at least they'll be able to do so after this weekend's website replacement.)
