I am sure there are plenty of threads on this but I thought I would just post my question. I own a silver season week in Marriott Vacation Club at Ocean Watch in Myrtle Beach which I enrolled into the points system a few years ago. I currently get 1400 points for my week. I am looking to buy some additional points because some of the places I would like to go to, I fall just short of the needed points even if I borrow from the following year. A couple things I would like to know. If I buy resale points am I able to combine them with my current Vacation Club points? I heard Marriott will charge a fee for buying resale. Is this true? Will I be limited on only using them at certain resorts? My goal is to have some additional points to make a vacation work such as going to Marriott's Newport Coast, CA. For the 6 nights I would like in June 2019 I need almost 4000 points but will only have 2800. Any input or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

There are 3 paths that you can take and it depends on whether you want to own the points or rent the points:
1. Buy resale point, going for around $4 per point to pass ROFR, and MVC will add another $3 per point with a minimum of $3000, plus a couple of hundred dollars in junk fees.
2. Rent points from 2 sites that are maintained by TUGgers. You don't get tied to on-going ownership of points. Points rental is about $0.6+ per point.
3. Buy a hybrid (week + points) package from Marriott and the price per point is fairly close to option 1.

There are no restrictions on resale points as long as you pay MVC's junk fees.

How do I find the cost of the Marriott Junk fees
