The way things have gone previously, I feel they dropped a zero from their time estimate of 12 to 15 hours. 120 to 150 hours seems more appropriate.

Seems unlikely this will result in the launch of Abound but is instead another step on the way like Ron Essig referred to in his website updates message on the owner homepage. They haven't announced anything changing their late October launch date. But you never know ;)

I received an email last night from Marriott to update my account because my weeks are in a trust. They said it is for " Online enhancements to Entity ownership accounts". I now have three Marriott numbers. One for the trust, one for me, one for my wife.

I logged out and back in and reduced the search to 6 properties and was able to view the search results so you might be correct about 10 being too many.....thanks.

We got the same email last night.
If we read the email correctly, we may not actually to do anything because we already have the login for the trust and the trust is under my name as the primary. And, up until today we've already have three accounts, one for the trust, one for myself and one for my partner, both of us are trustees of the trust.

I'm thinking, the more search properties you use, the more system memory it takes. Maybe their system is seriously getting hammered right now, so reducing system resources makes everything work better.

I get the same message when searching with just 2.

All they need to do is offer more stock and take the proceeds to hire competent professionals to fix their ANTIQUATED IT SYSTEM and trained their staff accordingly to run it and call it a day.

I had these problems for months, including the Outside Booking Window error message. I agree with the other posters that limiting your search to fewer properties can help. I have had days where Chrome was better, then the next day, Edge was better, and then the next day Firefox was better. On some days, only my iPhone using Safari seemed to work. Then, the biggest fix for me, and which has worked continuously well now for the past few weeks, is to just close the entire browser - not just the web page or tab you are using - but the entire browser. Then reopen and log back on and everything seems to work great for the rest of the day or two. When the errors come back, rinse and repeat. So if anyone is having these problems, try it. It did wonders for me.

No. Seeing normal site and even did a points search.
I was able to log back in, but I had to reconnect my ownership first.

What do you mean by ' reconnect my ownership first'?
When I logged in, I was presented with a screen asking for first and last name along with Owner Number asking me to Connect our Ownership. When you create an online account, it is just that, a website profile. It apparently needed to be connected to our ownership number even though it had been previously.

I didn't have this issue/prompt.
