When does Vistana/Marriott preference end?

I am using my Marriott account to watch a Vistana unit for next year that is still under preference and wondering when it would typically be out of preference? Does that happen at midnight on the 21st day or ?

There is no defined length of time. In years past the 21 days (Marriott) and 30 days (Vistana) have been mentioned. There was also 24 days (I believe the old Horizons brand). Those number of days don't really mean much now. We often see deposits fall out of priority in as little as a few days. There is also a preference of Marriott to Vistana that is shorter than the Vistana to Vistana priority period.
