Just left a Shell Vacation Club presentation at the Kauai Coast Resort. We currently own two weeks at the Cliffs Club that we thoroughly enjoy. When we told them that we came for the gifts, they made a final offer to allow us to convert our two Cliffs weeks for 9,000 SVC points that according to the sales person, would give us 3+ weeks at many resorts throughout the islands and world. The cost to us would be a one time payment of $4,490. Our maintenance fees would also be reduced by $200 annually.

Any Cliffs Club owners out there that considered or made the switch from weeks to points through SVC? What am I missing here? Not familiar with points but this seems like a decent deal.

Any help out there? The offer letter from Shell gives us a year to decide.

Well you can get shell points for free on ebay many with a years use thrown in. 9000 points will get you 2 2 bedroom units if traded through II however a week at Beach boy will cost you 4200 to 5500 in a one bedromm and 5800 to 6700 in a 2 bedroom so depending when you go, your points may or may not get you 2 weeks.

That being said, I love my shell points I just don't know I would be willing to pay several thousand to convert them.... I would just try and sell my cliff club and buy resale if I decided Shell was how I wanted to go
