hi i will be purchasing my first timeshare at the westin kierland villas and a very very cheap price from a timeshare reseller however the reseller has told me that the staroptions will not transfer and i am under the impression they will. is there any reason why staroptions won't transfer, that is the only reason i am purchasing

All the TS at Kierland are, what we here on TUG call, mandatory. This means that all the week at Kierland must be in SVN. So every week at Kierland will receive StarOptions.

This info is only true for mandatory resorts and mandatory phases at resorts which have both mandatory & voluntary phases.

FWIW, at an "owners update" at SVV this Thanksgiving, the sales manager used the terms voluntary and mandatory. So it might be part of the SVO terminology, too. James, any insight?

Steven,

Just nod and take your savings to the bank. The "mandatory" often sell for much more so you may be getting an even better deal than you thought!:banana:
