If I have a deeded platinum week can I trade my week into II for other resorts or do I have to use my points to trade I to II? I’ve already claimed my week for 2025 (June wk #24 WOR). Thx

If I'm parsing that question correctly, you're booked into your home week in Texas. That's that for the year. You used what you own.

If you convert that into points, that's where the choices come into play.

Correct. Now that I’ve done that rather than selecting the points, is it better to trade into II if I don’t plan to use that week?

Depends. What are you trying to accomplish? Where do you want to go?

You have only two good options -- internal Hyatt trades and Interval trades. Each has their pros and cons.

You have asked a loaded question.

I use points in both Hyatt and Interval. I plan ahead of time how many points I want to use for each and make sure I move points to EEE for Interval four months before my use week which extends their life for 2 years from your use week.

Unplanned points tend to go to Interval for that reason but I know I will use them in Interval.

After reading your post again, i think i may have missed an important point of your question.

You currently have booked your owned week for use - which is your exclusive right 6-12 months out. You don't trade in Interval with that week - you can only book in Interval with points. So if you want to book in Interval you will have to cancel your reservation to get your points back. Once you use any of the points from that week you have lost your exclusive right to your week.

Once you have your points back, you can book in Interval thru your Interval portal and it will use the points from CUP. But I prefer to move them to EEE before booking and it will pull from EEE before it pulls from CUP. I do that because i want the life of the points extended - which comes into play if you ever cancel your Interval reservation.

As I mentioned above I do use points for a combination of Interval and Hyatt reservations - but it requires planning. EEE is great with the points extention, but they cannot ever be moved back for Hyatt reservations.

Using a points system for Interval works differently that turning in a week for a week. For example, you cannot upgrade your unit size since the points requirements change. Changing from a 1br to a 2br will require extra points.

So just to understand because there’s so much info, I just need to cancel my week thru Hyatt & they will give me the points instead? Once I do that I can use those points for bookings in interval? EEE is not great as I will never be able to go back into Hyatt for as long as I own?? TIA

No, just for this year.

You can:

1) Use what you own. You are done until next year.
2) Convert to points and then spend them either on Hyatt timeshares or Interval timeshares (or hotels if you bought from the developer -- but hotels are the worst way to use your points)

1) Your week is worth a fixed number of points - week 24 at WOR should be 2000 points. You could have started using some or all of your points one year before your use week to book Interval, Hyatt , or a combination of both instead of reserving your home week. Your points have a lifespan and you just need to spend all (or as many as you can) before they expire. You used the 2000 points for your home reservation but if you cancel you will get them back.

2) Any points you put in EEE cannot be used for Hyatt. It has nothing to do with future points or any points you don't put into EEE. Each use year's allotment of points are unique and you spend them as you wish within the rules.

3) If you use your week every year you don't have to think about points. But you have options including staying less than a week and staying in a smaller unit so you can break up your points into multiple trips. The points buckets can be seen online under your contract. Each bucket has it's own set of rules. You can find a sticky this topic in the forum.
