Probably only sent to select owners

Hi
I havent received one but Marriott sometimes sends them to preferred members first, people that have multiple weeks or may have made referrals so others bought timeshares through them. After that they will reach out and send to others if they still have weeks available. Is the offer giving more than newport coast or are they offering other spots?

There is no week 53 gift of time for 2009 for resorts that have a fri., sat., sun., check in. When did you get this letter and how much did the weeks cost?

The offer was only for NCV. I received it several days ago and was able to book 12/26/08 - 01/02/09.

This is the content of the email that I received:

Exclusive Owner Offer from Marriott's Newport Coast Villas

Marriott Vacation Club® would like to invite you to experience Newport Coast's spectacular fall and winter while enjoying the benefits of ownership at Marriott's Newport Coast Villas. Newport Coast is a year-round destination and perfect for the traveler who seeks beautiful Pacific Ocean sunsets and all the features of the Pacific's Riviera. Explore fine dining and shopping, walk through the art colony of Laguna Beach or pack a picnic and spend a day on the beach at Crystal Cove. With the opening of the latest phase, Marriott Vacation Club is able to offer a bonus week at Marriott's Newport Coast Villas.

This is an extra week available for occupancy over and above the week(s) you own. See below for details.

As a valued Owner, we are pleased to make these weeks available to you for a low nightly maintenance fee, depending on the season and the selection of either a 4- or 7-night vacation. Each villa will receive a complimentary departure clean; and you may elect to receive a daily tidy for a minimal fee. Below is an outline of the units available:

2-Bedroom Villa

10/13/2008 - 1/01/2009
Monday Arrival (4 Nights Only) $499 plus tax

Monday Arrival (4 Nights Only) $399 plus tax

Please note this is a limited-time offer and prices do not include applicable occupancy taxes. We urge you to act now, as availability is limited.

We hope you enjoy The Gift of Time

Gift of Time

I received this about 3 weeks ago and was able to book Dec 22-26. I think there is an earlier thread about the offer here somewhere. We are very excited since we own here and this will be our first stay.

The general MVCI "Gift of time" weeks from prior years were eligible for depositing and trading in II. Before buying one, I specifically asked the person handling the transaction if I could trade and he said I could. I went on to deposit it with II and received a great trade.

I wonder if these are weeks that Marriott owns and rather than banking them with II they are essentially renting them internally to current owners.

I received this offer on 9/26/08, and I am not an owner at NCV. I have stayed there 3 times, so I must be in the database somehow.

Hi, I also had this e-mail offer, and am NOT an NCV owner, nor have I ever stayed there. We do own 1 Marriott bought DSVII and a resale MOC.

I own THREE Marriotts (one direct through Marriott and two on private sale) but did not receive this offer. Is there a contact I can approach for this offer?

It is most likely geared toward certain geographic locations just like the preview packages are.
