Thanks all. So with 2200 points, I’d be able to trade for any property I find in II, including (for instance) Westin St John, Aulani, Westin Princeville, etc?
All it would take is 1300 points for any 2 bedroom in II.
I bought my Hyatt week JUST for II. I very occasionally trade into Hyatt properties -- typically mid-week stays in Sedona or Carmel to rid myself of leftover points. Mostly I trade in II.
1300, 870, 430. The only numbers you need to remember. 1300 at most for a 2bd. 870 for a 1bd. 430 for a studio. Could be even less during shoulder/low season. But I always plan on the above numbers.
So, 2200 divided by 430 = five weeks, with some leftover points for Hyatt and/or banking in II.
Keep in mind that II trades are becoming harder as time goes on. People are finally seeing the light about buying a timeshare just to trade. So there is more competition than when I first started, back when it was "buy a week, trade for a week, it's always a week, no exceptions." Twenty years and people are finally starting to catch on. Oh well, it was a good run while it lasted.
