I have an April use year and had points that would expire at the end of March 2021.

I had spoken to Member Services on two occasions but they said I would have to wait until next year to see what would happen about the expiring points.

So I emailed Member Services about the situation and and not wanting to lose the points.

I got a phone call today from Member Services and after discussing not being able to gain entry this year to America they asked what I was looking for (although I had thought I said n the email) I said I wanted to be able to bring the rest of my expiring points over in 2021. This would mean I wouldnít lose points and then wouldnít have to borrow half of my 2022 points to go next year.

They went off to speak to someone and came back and said YES!

It all got sorted out over the phone and the borrowed points from 2022 got returned to their year.

If you are in this position I would definitely recommend emailing.

Which group did you use? I have some points I would be interested in renting out either as points or as a reservation. But I am not very au fair with FB.

Hey Jan, have a look at this thread, I posted details on there about the FB page. It's a very busy page, several Dibbers have since managed to rent reservations / points on there.

Can I ask, were your expiring points banked from 2019, or were they 2020 use year? As I'm in the exact same situation, have 200 points from 2019, banked to 2020 which will expire in March 2021.

I've phoned member services and was told nothing could be done as they had already been banked. So I'm stuck with losing them and can't borrow what we need from 2022.

Can you advise which email address you contacted and how you worded it? As this would be ideal for us if we could get the same resolution.

Thanks

Iím the same with a use year of March and emailed once again (following Andiís post) and received a call yesterday from DVC - they were very nice but the bottom line was no we need to wait until January and before the RCI deadline and they would look again!

When they called I thought they were calling to say yes but afraid not! Seems no consistency here!

I think it's the inconsistency that's the issue too. We had bought one time use points and got 3 different answers before they eventually refunded them.

Will email anyway and see what they say

I have a December use year and had all of my 2018 points banked into 2020 due to a long planned Aulani trip. As they had already been banked I was told more than once that nothing could be done to save them, even though they extended the use of some earlier months points - so I ended up renting them out on Facebook - for less that they were worth, but I panicked and just wanted to get shot of them as I donít want anything that RCI was offering.
