We will be going to an Owner Presentation (we already own at MOC and Waiohai but decided to buy an Encore Package) later this year. I've already made reservations and already have the presentation scheduled. The choices are: (1) 50,000 Bonvoy points (I have over 500K of these already); (2) $300 American Express gift card; or (3) 650 Destination Club points (we're in the program but only have no more than 400 points since we basically always use our Maui weeks). Looking for some help from many of you who already have done the analysis of which option is the best value. I'm inclined towards the DC points because added to the 400 we have, it may allow a 3-4 day stay at Ko Olina in 2022. But open to other recommendations.

If you can and will use them, the DC points are likely the best. I generally take the dollars if I can easily use them but sometimes they are restricted so it depends on the specific options on the list if they are restricted (like HHI last time when we got $350).
