Are you referring to rolling your 2012 Staroptions over to 2013?

There is a long thread at the top of the forum, but you just call up Starwood and ask them to do it. Here is a summary:

How much does it cost to bank StarOptions?

Five-Star Elite Owners: No charge.
Three-Star and Four-Star Elite Owners: $79
All other Owners: $99

What is the deadline to request StarOptions Banking?

Starwood Vacation Network members can request StarOptions Banking no later than July 1.

Three-Star and Four-Star Elite members may request through October 1.

Five-Star may request through December 31.

The place where banking of StarOptions is explained on mystarcentral is in the "Using your Ownership" section of the "Guide to Starwood Vacation Ownership." Then you click on "Using StarOptions," and then "Banking or Borrowing StarOptions."

There is also a Sticky on the TUG Starwood Forum home page devoted to discussion about banking StarOptions. Salty
