Just found out at my destinations apt. that I can exchange my time share weeks for points, but for the life of me, I do not see on this website, how to do it. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for assistance!
You need to got to the Marriott Vacation Club International web site, or call a Vacation Club advisor at 888/682-4862. I convert most of my weeks into Marriott Reward points every year and have had some great vacations between Marriott hotels and the time shares. Also, look into travel packages, probably the last great deal offered by Marriott Rewards.
That's good advice. The MVC WEB site is not very user friendly as yet.
Thank you so much for your comments. I have been working on it since i read your post, think I need to call the company to complete my exchange.
Are you referring to Marriott Reward points or Marriott Vacation Club Destination points. If your weeks are enrolled in Destination Club, you can convert to DC points and use them for nights at other MVC resorts. These can be a fair value and are very flixible.
Converting to Marriott Rewards points is no longer a good value. The amount of MR points that are provided for your week haven't changed since the program began several years ago. However, Marriott has significantly increased the MR requiremetns for a stay. When I purchased my timeshare in Orlando, 110k MR points would get me 7 nights at any hotel/resort worldwide, air fare for 2 on major airlines, a Hertz full size rental for a week, and a cruise certificate. Now, the same amount of points will get me a 5 night stay at a Courtyard. During that same time, my maintenance fees have also increased from about $350 to $1100.
Thanks for your post. Especially your last paragraph which makes imminent sense.
Thank you for your comments, I hope I can get some new vacation options since I did. Not go with the destinations program. Am hoping the points exchange will add something new to our current vacation experiences.
