Can I do anything with 175 points?

I have 175 points that were banked from last year. I'm heading to MGO in a few weeks and won't be at another Marriott timeshare for the remainder of the year.

Is there anything productive I can do with this small number of points while at MGO (or otherwise) before they expire?

I would combine that with another 150 points and get the $110 resort credit to use for food/beverages/market at GO.

The maintenance on the borrowed 150 pts is more than the certificate is worth. Might want to just let them go or you can get an off season golf certificate which is only 200 pts and good for a year from when you get it. If you play or know someone who does to gift it to it might be worth $39 to borrow 50 pts 🤷🏼‍♀️

I suggest you offer these points to another points owner for free or for a nominal amount and move on. I think Tug has a place where you can offer these free to another user and just transfer them.

Can’t transfer banked points.

Sat Sun Mon at Harbour Pointe in Hilton Head during low season (early Dec restart Jan skipping holidays)

Not sure when you go to Grande Ocean, but you can get at least one midweek night any season if you find inventory. Its nice over there by the marina, and you could case it out if you have not been before.

I could go in Dec Jan if you cannot use :<)
