10 minutes wait time at 9:00 sharp this morning. Then midcancellation an earthquake rocked the CSR's home (they are working from home in Utah because the offices are closed due to COVID-19). A couple of minutes later she confirmed everything was OK. And she then cancelled my reservation.

As always, amazing reps working above and beyond.

Question, we also have reservation 4/4-4/11 using destination points. Are they putting your points into a holding account where you can make reservations 120 days prior, but these points terminate on 12/31?

Correct...into holding account that can be used 120 days prior to check in on a new ressie. Expiration date remains whatever they were to start with, so if they were calendar year 2020 points that expired 12/31/2020, then that expiration date remains.

The points termination date is unchanged from whatever it was before reservation. If you had borrowed next years points for example, they terminate next year. The holding account has always existed, it just was 60 days in advance, they've given us 120 days now during this event.

If I were you I would call tomorrow morning (if you can). You will be 63 days out...you don't want to let your cancellation go unconfirmed and have your points stuck in a holding account.

Yes, and if you can't get thru on the phone you may want to consider cancelling on line.......

Called at exactly 9 AM this morning and was live with Arlene at 9:02. Cancelled an Ocean Pointe reservation starting this weekend. My wife is the lead for her social service organization's COVID-19 response team, so no way we could have down time right now.
