    Per the leaked new T&C of the merged SPG and MR programs. It looks like nights stayed at Vistana properties will start counting toward Elite Night credit. I wonder, will this extend to owner stays?

    7.2 Vistana Signature Experiences
    7.2.a Vistana Signature Experiences Additional Information.

    7.2.b Vistana Participating Properties. Due to the nature of Vistana properties, special conditions apply to their participation in the Loyalty Program as follows:

    i. Members will earn Elite Night Credit for a Qualifying Stay at Vistana properties.

    ii. Members will earn Points or Miles for all Qualifying Charges at Vistana properties.

    iii. Eligible Loyalty Program Members may also earn Points or Miles through Rewarding EventsSM when they book and hold qualifying Events at Vistana properties.

    iii. Members do not receive the following benefits (as defined in Section 4) at Vistana properties: Complimentary Enhanced Room Upgrades, late checkout, Suite Night Awards, Guaranteed Room Type, 48-Hour Guaranteed Availability, or Your24.

    iv. Free Night Awards at Vistana properties must be booked at least one (1) day in advance of arrival. Vistana properties either do not participate or do not fully participate in the “No Blackout Dates” benefit at this time.

    When I read this I was concerned because the definition of "Qualifying Stay" discusses paying a "Qualifying Rate". However, that same language (7.2.b.i.) is also in the section for MVC members and MVC members have been earning elite night credits for their stays.

    I'm happy!!!!

    When in August does this take effect?? I assume the 18th, the same date as the points merger???

    oh...this could affect the justification for the MR/SPG credit cards, right? It would make things a bunch easier with an extra xx nights... from ownership stays

    edited: It would be very nice if all our timeshare stays counted as elite nites.......that would be 7 nites (14 for lock-off?) of extra credit.

    sorry for the confusing first post.
