Re: Re: When to rent points for use in 2016?
I appreciate your help in providing info regarding points. Since I did not buy my TS directly from Marriott, I lost some benefits such as not able to exchange for Marriott reward points. Plus I should have bought every year use so I could rent or trade one year. Comes from not knowing about that. I decided to enroll my TS in Marriott's destination program to be able to exchange with other Marriotts. Buying points, this way we get a vacation each year, maybe a bigger vacation some years cuz of the TS. We had gone to an update on our diamond resorts TS earlier this year and decided, I would rather join the Marriott program versus Diamond Resorts, especially if plunking down lots of money. I checked and if buying resale points though cheaper, I could end up having to pay the enrollment fee of $2395 which was waived. Thus maybe I could save a few K's. I discovered this vacation point exchange site from TUG when looking into further info about Marriotts point system. Renting points could save me a ton of money especially on the maintenance fees. I have 10 days to decide to cancel which is by Saturday. But wow, I love this renting of points already!! I'm trying to read all the documents Marriott gave us. Thanks for your help.
