The Grandview at Las Vegas 122000 points annually....
Hello all! the question is asked on what is better points or weeks and while I don't have that answer I thought I would pass on how I used this years points for our trip to Hawaii in Nov.

1.) 2 bedroom at the Grand Waikikian by Hilton Vacations Clubs for seven nights 69500 Points plus money for trade to RCI...

2.) 7day car rental from Enterprise - Chevy Tahoe 50,050 points plus 25.00

3.) 2 bedroom at Shearwater for three nights 40,920 points plus money for trade to RCI...

4.) 3day car rental from Enterprise - Chevy Tahoe 22,500 points plus 179.23

TOTAL RCI POINTS :183000 points ~$1000.00 a year paid for MF for Grandview

$1000.00 MF Grandview
$ 159.00 RCI Trade cost for 1(can't remember the cost for the trade)
$ 25.00 RCI cost for 2
$ 159.00 RCI trade cost for 3(can't remember the cost for the trade)
$ 179.23 RCI trade cost for 4
$1522.23 TOTAL for lodging and transportation for 10 days in Honolulu and Kauai........

:banana::banana: I feel that I have leveraged my points to the best I could because if you were going to pay straight up cash to stay in a two bedroom and vehicles you would pay TONS more then what I am.... oh and by the way the other couple who is going with us is paying half so now it brings it down to less then $800.00 for 10 days in paradise!!!!!!
