Just enjoyed a stay at Marriott's Ocean Pointe Resort .
Was offered an "Encore Package" for 5 Days/ 4 Nights

Tier 1 - $995. w/ 50,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points
Tier 2 - $1295. "
Tier 3 - $1595. "

Expires June 2021
The $1295. will get us the Myrtle Beach or Hilton Head and/or typical 2BR Suite. (Looking at Summer time frame 2020 or 2021)

- We are not current owners (We sold our Marriott Time share 2 years ago ..and NOT planning on buying again)

Thoughts on this package ? Is it worth the $ ?

Thank you

It's not a bad deal IF you want a four day timeshare vacation at one of the available resorts, IF you don't mind wasting a half day of that vacation suffering through another sales presentation, and IF you can say "no" at that presentation.

Figure the Bonvoy points are worth $350-400 against the purchase price.
