    Renting Marriott Vacation Club Vacations to Offset Costs

    Hi All, I have been researching Marriott Vacation Club Points for a little bit now. I have been seeing many pros and cons of the programs, and one major con seems to be the yearly point fees. I was wondering if anyone with Marriott Vacation Club Points have experience 'renting' or 'selling' a...

    Review of Sales presentations in a pandemic

    I have managed to tour WorldMark, Vistana, Hilton, and Marriott in the last 2 months. This is for two reasons. First, my house is being upgraded and therefore I needed places to stay. And secondly, I needed to use my points. I was very curious how the timeshare presentations had changed from...

    Selling our [# Deleted] MVC Points

    What is the best way to sell our two deeds? I called sellmytimeshare.com and they want $2000 up front. Then I called a broker from California and he said his fee was $3000 but only after we sell. I know I'm screwed no matter what we do, but what is the best way? Is Red Week any good? Or...

    ILG (Vistana Flex) and Marriott Vacation Club - Now what? Owner update?

    Has anyone listened to an owner update to find out how the Marriott purchase of ILG will impact Vistana Flex moving forward? I'm curious since I'll be staying in a Vistana resort next week and I'm wondering what will be shared if I do an "owner update".

    Marriott wants to transform the Sheraton experience

    Link between Marriott Hotel side and MVC

    I just booked a reservation with my DC Trust Points. It is showing up in my Marriott Rewards hotel account. However, the reservation I booked with my post-2010 week does not show up in my MR Rewards account. Folks have said Marriott hotel and MVC are separate companies. So why do my DC Trust...

    Would Marriott combine MVC with Vistana?

    Does anyone think Marriott would ever combine Marriott Vacation Club with the Vistana timeshare program? They did it with Marriott and Ritz Carlton destination clubs. They are linking Marriott Rewards with the SPG points program. So I wonder if they might combine the StarOptions program with...

    Anyone at Myrtle Beach to give update on condition

    Anywhere there now to give us an update on how it is looking? Marriott says it is "running normally", but of course, I'm a skeptic. Are all buildings completely opened? How's the indoor pool look (since its on a low spot)? Thanks!
