Marriott Vacation Club Announces Change to their Timeshare Points Program

Starting on July 16, 2009, the Marriott Vacation Club will be adjusting the number of points required for redemption stays at Marriott Vacation Club resorts. The properties will be assigned category levels, and each level requires a certain number of points before the free night can be redeemed. Guests must reserve a stay for a minimum of 5 nights to receive the fifth night for free, which will be automatically applied. This new policy will apply to all Marriott Vacation Club redemption reservations booked on or after July 16.

Reservations are for Deluxe Guest rooms, unless an upgrade is desired. An additional 5,000 points per night are required to upgrade to a 1-bedroom, 10,000 for a 2-bedroom, and 15,000 points are needed for a 3-bedrooms villa. Not all properties have the same room types, which is why the new category levels per location has been assigned.

For those who wish to redeem their points at the current award schedule, you should make sure to book your accommodations AND order your certificate from Marriott Guest Services on or before July 16, 2009. Blackout dates will apply. Unused Marriott Vacation Club certificates cannot be redeemed for stays that haven’t been completed by July 16, 2009.
