I need some viable suggestions on how to salvage 10,000 points that will expire(Oct31) prior to transfer of Worldmark the Club membership. Easiest way or any options would be helpful. Thanks in advance sorry for the duplicate post

Have the seller book anything to hold them - Indio - Galena ?

Book what you really want with either current or borrowed

Get on the phone with a vacation counselor - cancel the "holding" reservation apply the oldest points to the desired reservation

The simplest way to save them is to have the seller book what you want to use. The date of use can be as much as 13 months in the future from the date the credits are scheduled to expire.

Is it only worldmark that you have 13 months from expiration? I was looking at some wyndham points that would have been good until end of year but wasn't sure i would go anywhere before january. could I have gotten that and booked a vacation for next summer using those 2008 points?

They share the name Wyndham but that's where the similarity ends ...

Like Lira and yen two different currencies
