Cost rising for timeshare week transfer to points. How often does this happen?

Hello, everyone. My partner and I bought two platinum timeshare weeks at the Boston Custom House earlier this year, and one of the things we liked was the ability to convert them to Marriott Rewards points each year, if we wanted.

 

When we first got them (around February or March of this year), Marriott charged $119 to convert one week into Rewards points.

 

I just converted one of next year's weeks, and the charge is now $124. While $5 isn't going to break the bank, I'm concerned about the percentage increase. Does this kind of thing happen every year? If Marriott feels that a percentage like that is okay in this economy, we could get into some big numbers and serious compounding down the road.

 

If a more experienced Marriott timeshare owner could share their thoughts on this, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!
