That’s right, Marriott corporate members can now take advantage of the E-Plus benefit, too! E-Plus allows you to re-trade your confirmed exchange up to three times for a low, one-time fee. Click here for more information, or read our FAQs to help answer all of your questions. Additional details can also be found in the Buyers’ Guide.

What? I read this from your link. Retrades to other Marriott properties have been free. Does that now go away? Or is this for non-Marriott trades?

This was posted today by II in their Community > Discussions > Exchange > E-Plus
as a reply to an enrolled Marriott Owner who was now seeing the option to buy E-Plus next to a recently confirmed Marriott to Marriott exchange.

A few in SC, VA and FL, a single resort in NC, MD, PA, NY, UT, ME, WI, and TN plus Jamaica and the Bahamas
I would think they were still free. The links though link to standard eplus info- nothing specific to a Marriott corporate account. Does this mean one could do a free M to M and then add eplus and retrade into a non M without any additional fees or would it only apply to non M exchanges?

Unless they went out of their way to do the programming, which would be uncharacteristic of II, it probably means you can add E-Plus and then trade into non-M for free. That is how it works right now for a non-corporate account. Initial trade for the lower M-M fee and then trade into non-M for no charge.

This would be a huge plus for enrolled weeks if this is the case. With a corporate account, the exchange fee is still getting paid in some way. Perhaps through some type of arrangement between II and Marriott where II gets a portion of every members DC Annual Fee, or perhaps whenever a trade is made in the corporate account, MVC pays II a set amount to cover that trade. So trades are not really free, we pay them as part of the DC annual fee. I may have the opportunity to try this out in the near future.

If it works, it means an enrolled owner shouldn't have to pay more than $59 for an instant exchange. Trade Marriott to Marriott, add EPlus then retrade in to the non Marriott. It won't work for OGS though.

Has anyone confirmed if Marriott to Marriott exchanges are still free ? E-Plus covers non-Marriott exchanges ?
