    1500 points will get me to Presidential level

    I'm thinking about buying a few DC points in order to get to the Presidential level. Right now, we own 5500 trust points that run from Feb 1 to Feb 1. We also own an enrolled platinum Shadow Ridge week that was part of a hybrid deal. The points from that week run from January 1 to January 1...

    Ritz Carlton Yacht Collection

    https://www.ritzcarltonyachtcollection.com I wonder if we will eventually be able to use DC Points to book cruises on the Ritz Carlton Yacht Collection. Has anyone heard anything about this?

    Marriott Resale DC Point Benefits

    Just double checking on this. 1) Do Marriott DC points bought on the resale market come with all the same benefits as buying DC Points direct after the activation fee is paid? As I understand they do have all benefits except the ability to convert DC Points to Marriott Rewards points. 2) Do...

    DC Points Bundled Program (Week + Points)

    Has anyone here purchased a bundled program from MVC that includes a deeded week and DC Points? It averages out to about $7.44 per point plus MVC throws in some perks so it seems like a good deal in line with buying all DC Points on the resale market. However, when I was reading the MVC...
