The points work like cash, and you can apply them towards your next vacation. The more points you have, the more opportunities there are that become available to you.

As of 2020, packages begin at around $22,000, and prices vary based on when and where you want to travel and on the number of weeks of the timeshare you purchase. People who are looking to buy into the program can make their purchase from presentations offered by Marriott employees, or they can buy resales, which can be a great way to save money. These are timeshares that the current owners, not the resort or developer, are selling. Resales are available on sites like eBay, SellMyTimeshareNOW and RedWeek.

These include the more than 50 premium Marriott Vacation Club resorts in places like Miami, Lake Tahoe, Orlando, Hilton Head, Oahu, Mallorca, the Virgin Islands and other locations.
