Under our Marriott overlords, banking deadlines have changed, and it's based on your Marriott "benefit level" - they don't use the Vistana "Elite" member terms any more. You can find your Marriott benefit level by logging into your online Vistana Acct. and clicking on your blue name at the top of the page. As in the past, you can bank online by clicking the Staroption Banking link at the top of the same page. Banking is free now.

Select owners - June 30
Executive/Presidential owners - Aug. 31
Chairman's Club Members - Oct. 31

DeniseM, Are you referring to banking 2024 StarOptions? We own EOY-odd at WKV, non-elite level in Vistana, ineligible for Marriott Abound. This is what I see:

Yes - 2024.
What you see listed for 2025 is the earliest date that you can deposit 2025 Staroptions - the 2025 deadlines (LAST day to deposit) will be the same dates, except in 2025.

Tonight's the deadline to bank for "Select Owners." The website seems pretty slow right now - don't wait too long and get stuck in a slow website:

*** Select owners - June 30 ***

Executive/Presidential owners - Aug. 31
Chairman's Club Members - Oct. 31
