Re: Re: Happy to find Marriott Points friends
Right now I am not sure of when we will take our trip. I will be sure to remember the dates you have discussed. You are right that my dates are from 9/1/13 - 8/31/14. I have to bank my points by 2/28/14. It seems like may owners book their vacations very far in advance. I don't know if I will be able to do that. I see that you can exchange, but how do you exchange points? Or can you?
Your best bet is to read this Marriott points system FAQ at TUG. It will answer a lot of your immediate questions. http://www.tugbbs.com/forums/showthread.php?t=197346As for the timing of booking your vacations, the farther out you can book, the more availability there will be. There will be more available at 12 months out than there will be a 2 months out. That said, it varies greatly by resort and time of year. That said, in a recent newsletter from the Marriott Vacation Club Trust Owners Association, most reservations are being placed between 1 and 3 months out, so all hope is not lost if you can't plan a year ahead.
