Let me understand this: I have an enrolled week, whose initial reservation started Feb. 14, 2018, and I traded it via II for a week in Oct. 2020. If I decide to re-trade that week, I can only accept a trade or re-trades for a week up to Feb. 14, 2021? Or are you saying I can re-trade it initially as far out as possible (up to Feb. 14, 2021), and then I can re-trade it again with no restrictions on the date?
Your week is good for 2 years in II.
You will see an expiration date next to it in my units.
That date is true- you must use your week by then or it expires.
The neat thing about an enrolled Marriott week is there is $0 exchange fee to exchange to another Marriott.
When you retrade on II more than 24 hrs after confirmation without eplus you lose your exchange fee and have to pay a new one (this is standard).
With an enrolled week exchanging to another Marriott with the $0 fee you don’t care that you lose the $0 and repay the $0.
So you can just keep retrading to Marriotts losing 0 and paying 0 as many times as you want.
Note that this is a retrade- all manual exchanging.
Steve was saying if you can’t keep your original exchange but are not sure where you want to go or can’t find availability make a retrade more than 60 days be before your current check in date and select a new Marriott all the way out to your expiration date to keep your self out of flexchange and then keep looking to retrade to where you would like to go. You are not required to do this- if you are super organized and feel OK that you will always retrade more than 60 days ahead- but I do it as Steve mentions just to be safe.
You can extend a week on II by paying the fee to extend- I believe it’s $99 for 6 months- but the extended week is in flexchange limited to manual exchange and booking 60 days ahead of check in.
You can also buy eplus to extend your expiration by a year if you are not in flexchange for $59. That will still be manual exchange, but not in flexchange unless you are already there.
