I have 1,800 staroptions remaining for this year. Is there any way to use them?

I don't think so, unless you are 4 or 5 Star Elite, in which case you can roll them over to 2012.

Starting in 2012 you can roll the options into the next year even if you aren't 4 or 5 star elite, but it will cost you $79 to do so. You will have to do some thinking about how many options are worth the cost. It has me thinking about how I use extra options to add days to weeks, or take short getaways for a few days just to use up the options.

bobpark, ... "I have 1,800 staroptions remaining for this year."

I just looked at the StarOption chart. There is no (not even 1) SVO resort where you can reserve 1 night in the tiniest room in the lousiest season for less than 2,000 StarOptions.

Getting the StarOptions down to less than 2,000 is pretty efficient use, IMO. You did good in 2011! ... eom

I think it would be cool if we could convert our leftover tidbit options into resort dollars that we could spend at the resort restaurants or on activities.
