There is new info about making a deposit in SFX using your HGVC points.

It used to be, you could only deposit your home resort where you actually owned. It has recently changed to where you can now reserve any week with HGVC and deposit that week with SFX. Sometimes the news doesn't always reach the front line in a timely manner.


So... for example, go ahead and reserve a week at HGVC in one of their Hawaii properties. There is no need at that point to mention depositing with an exchange company. Then login to your SFX account at www.sfx-resorts.com/memblogin.htm and click Deposit a week.

Complete the deposit form. We will then send that to HGVC who will verify the dates and size are correct, and then sign off on it. At that point it will be credited to your SFX account for an exchange... Plus a Bonus Week as per our offer.

Always glad to find out there are more ways to maximize the use of HGVC pts. Has anyone tried this yet?

I booked a 1Br Gold(3400 pts) reservation at my home resort and banked it with SFX for a 3-1 promotion. Already exchanged/used two out of the three.
