When you buy a resale week, the reservation capabilities will (should) be what is set forth in the underlying ownership document. For example, if you buy a deeded week at Point at Poipu (I use that because I am familiar with that resort), you can reserve for seven nights in the view category associated with that deed, with check-in on Thu - Mon. (No Tue or Wed check-in.) There is no provision to roll over a usage from year-to-year - if you can't make a reservation your option is to deposit with an exchange company (taking a resort bulk-banked week).Isn’t it also the case with resale points that you have to book standard 7 day reservations in a unit type (with possible check in dates specified by the resort but usually Fri, Sat, or Sun)? Or are they flexible on this? I’ve always wondered about this point because I bought resale points but I never had to use them outside the Club. I always made purchases to bring them in. But the salespeople frequently used the line that making reservations other than a standard week was a benefit reserved for Club members.
If you buy in the Hawaii Collection, your reservation will be whatever the trust allows - what you will receive are trust points, which are then used to make a reservation. I'm not sure if the trust allows points to be rolled over from year-to-year, of if there are limits on check-in days.
