    New member question

    Selling Marriott points

    I have 1400 annual points at Marriot's Myrtle Beach Oceanwatch Grande Dunes. I enrolled my week a couple years ago and have only used them once and really only a couple times did I use my week when I first got it in 2008. How do I advertise my timeshare for sale, as a week or as points?

    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...

    Marriott DC trust points

    Concerning the Marriott DC program, we are enrolled owners and have no trust points. We would like to know if, for example, renting 2000 points to add to our current 2175 points from Grande Vista will open us up to trust point owners' level of property availability or must we buy trust points...
