Can someone clarify for me what the June 30 expiration date for a Starwood II deposit means? Do I need to initiate an exchange by 6/30 for travel any time in the future or do I need to exchange for a week that completes by 6/30?

According to the reference guide on MyStarCentral, it says:

"You must begin your exchange request on your Resort Assignment no later than June 30th of the second year after the Use Year being assigned, or your Resort Assignment expires."

This seems to suggest that I can initiate the exchange by 6/30 but travel any time including after 6/30. However, in the assignment email I got when I deposited the week, it says:

"If you accept an Interval International confirmation for travel for a check-in date later than the expiration date of this Assignment, you will be subject to the relinquishment of an alternate Use Right or Use Year."

The latter seems to suggest that if I don't return by 6/30, I can't use the expiring deposit.

Does anyone know what the current rule on expiration is?

Thanks!

The one time we've used II, I seem to recall that it wouldn't offer us anything that crossed the Jun 30th date, so I think that your stay has to end by no later than Jun 30th.

I believe if you do an online search, it will correct the date if you go past the allowed time frame, and that will tell you what it is.

Do you mean when you enter dates for the search? Does II even know what you've "designated" for trade with Starwood? In my II account (which is developer/SVN account), I can't tell which place holder maps to which week and no matter what week I select, I can put in any dates I want up to 2 years into the future.

Yes -when you enter the dates for an online search, it will correct the dates, if you've gone past the allowed timeframe for the week you have "designated for exchange."

Yes - When you designate your week for exchange with Starwood - they contact II - that's why you have to call Starwood to "designate your week for exchange," under the 2009 rules.

Under the 2009 rules, Starwood uses the earliest week available (that you have designated for exchange) for any trade. So say you have a deposit in the bank for 2011 and 2012 - they would automatically use 2011 - IN THEORY! :D

They will not use a week that has not been "designated for exchange," IN THEORY.
