Sorry, I wasn't clear. I am looking at buying Destination Points and want to be sure that are are no restrictions attached vs. buying though Marriott Sales. Assuming I pay all Marriott fees, is the use of the Destination Points the same as if I purchased them through Marriott Sales.Assuming you are buying resale points thru a private transaction and pay all the fees? Yes, you are enrolled as a points member just as if you purchased via Marriott.
Assuming you are buying resale week thru a private transaction? No, only Marriott can "energize" a resale week into points.
IMHO the best bang for the buck are resale weeks, but always buy where you really like to go......
You are absolutely correct, if you buy a resale titled week (i.e buying a 1BR OV at Marriott Ko Olina), you will not be able to trade the unit for Destination points or for Marriott points. If anyone buys a deeded week via resale, I agree that it needs to be somewhere you plan to use.
