I own 2 deeded weeks purchased as resales at Maui Ocean Club and am considering adding more deeded weeks via the resale market, but a recent offer from a Marriott sales rep has me thinking:
1. My 1 bed ov purchased 2007 to be enrolled in points program valued at 3900 points. The other was purchased in 2011 so does not qualify for the offer.
2. Marriott to sell me 1 deeded week 1 bed ov they have in their resale inventory (14,000.00) valued at another 3900 points
3. Marriott to sell me 4000 points.
Total points would be almost 12,000.
Sales incentive of 300,000 rewards points
Total price for all the above is about 55,000.00
So I get the equivalent of 2 more weeks than I have now plus a bunch of rewards points to use for some great trips.
Thoughts? Should I do it or just buy another 2 weeks resale?

Follow up:

My thought to get the equivalent of 2 more weeks would be to buy a resale 2 bedroom ov with lock off and use each side individually back to back weeks for a 2 week trip.

What's the going rate for the resale 2BR lockoff? Do you value the flexibility that the DC offers at $55K less that 2BR cost? Only you can answer that. $55K is a lot of money for a 1BR and some points for sure.

You could just enroll your current week and then rent any additional points needed for just a little more than the MFs. $2300 for enrollment is much cheaper than $55,000.

Going price for 2 bedroom ocean view is 16,000 to 20,000.00 but I have no idea if any of them would pass ROFR.

If you look at the SOLD listings on Ebay, you will see that these units sell for a whole lot less. Of course, I don't know if they all pass ROFR.
