Interval is offering an 'bonus week certificate' for 3 and 5 year renewals. Has anyone ever used one of theses? Are they like regular accommodation certificates? Does anyone know the typical expiration date of these certificates?

I think these types of certificates are usually restricted to only booking in Flexchange. Meaning you can only make a reservation with the certificate 59 days or less from the current date. I believe they expire one year from issue.

Is the promotion for basic or platinum renewal? I received one for renewing/extending my platinum membership. It occasionally sees a little more inventory than the freebies, but not enough to sway me to renew early again. I can’t make an exchange request either.

ETA- @dioxide45 is correct, mine is on a 60 day rolling window and expires 1 yr from when it was issued.

Thanks for the information. This would be for a basic renewal. Getting one of these does move the needle a little for making a decision on renewing for one or three years.

Last time I renewed I waited until close to renewal date and received an offer that was really low, I think 3 years for $109 or something.
You might try waiting unless the bonus week has value to you.
