If these items have been dealt with already please direct me to those threads.
1. Hgvc new resale purchase points now useful only thru rci, not for Hilton properties
2. There is value in a combination of points and dollars thru a part of hgvc which appears to operate as a travel agency- if so, is it really good value?
3. Hyatt now owns Starwood timeshares.

Thanks

Anita

Ps always good to check up!

1. I assume thats a salesman from HGVC told you that? - but nonetheless its not true like everything else the salesmen are saying. You can use you HGVC points for vacations throughout the system, and also on RCI.
2.If you mean booking cruises, special types of vatations - you have the option, but I don't think its the best value of spending your point,
3.That I have no knowledge about.

Regards.

Hyatt does not own Starwood.

Interval Leisure Group which owns II, has purchased Hyatt and Starwood.

Purchase is not actually final, it's in process. Most likely it will happen.

1. A lie. "His lips were moving."
2. The best use of points is as they were intended - for TS stays.
... Any other use devalues them, incl. HHonors point conversions.
3. Irrelevant.

MVP code

A few years ago I found a HHonors MVP discount code. It does not seem to work any longer. Does anyone know the current code? Thanks
