I booked our week vacation already and have about 350 DP left. What do I do with them so I don't lose them?

You can bank them to 2021 and have more points for next year.

If you don’t want to bank the points go to the MVC site and click ‘use points’, then ‘explorer collection‘ to see options for using your points.

Or you can just give them away to someone who is in need.......

I was going to say that, you beat me to it. Yeah, bank them so you can use them next year + whatever points you get then. You have at least until the end of June depending on your ownership level.

How exactly does banking work? How long will they be good for? Do they have the same exchange power/level as next year's points?

They have the same usage/power as any point for the time covered. Please learn about your options so you can maximize your benefits.

Points can only be banked once so that extends the expiration by a year and once they are banked they can’t be transferred meaning you can’t sell or gift them to someone else. Banked points also can’t be borrowed.

Travel insurance to protect your vacation? Don't remember the DPs needed, but you can buy for next year if you are already insured for this year. However, banking makes the most sense, if you are likely to have use for them.
