    Pretty new to all of this. I have not yet been able to use my ownership because I can't figure this out. I have a Sheraton Flex membership with 81,000 points. My home resort is not available for that week. They suggest I wait to see if people cancel, which I suppose is an option.
    I can't quite understand how the exchange to II works. I might have some options there since my own resort is not available.
    I also thought that the Flex membership did not require me to book 7 days at a time but it seems like I am not able to book less so if anyone has suggestions on that I would appreciate it.

    I am determined to learn how to use this thing since I made the mistake of buying it. We do like to travel and I think that we can make good use of this if I can figure out how to do it.

    Appreciate any help anyone can offer.

    First off, Flex does not require a specific check-in day and you can make a reservation during your home resort period for anything from 1 to 14 days. Since you are within 8 months of the reservation, you are actually making a StarOption reservation which also does not require a 7-night stay.

    All you can do is keep looking and hope to catch an opening due to a cancellation. Or change your dates of stay. Right now I see there is availability at Sheraton Vistana Villages for either a 1- or 2-bedroom villa for check-in on Friday December 21 for five nights leaving Wednesday December 26.
