    US Marriott Points vs Asia Pacific Points, or should I be looking at others like Hyatt, Hilton or Welk points?

    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?

    [2015] History of Marriott DC Point Price increases

    I know when I went to a presentation a couple years ago the Sales person had a sheet that listed the date and the price of the price increases. I thought we had something like that on TUG. Am I missing it? Does it exist? If not, do you think we can build it and add it to the FAQ? I...
