Thread: Searching II with Marriott Points....

  1. #1

    Question Searching II with Marriott Points....

    I have such trouble searching II with Destination Club Points. Sometimes it works, but most times it doesn't. Grrrr. Using various point amounts, I Constantly get "Sorry we did not find any matches for your travel dates & destination." Meanwhile there's plenty of availability in weeks.

    Is it that there are really so few points deposited in II, or is the online search engine messed up? Or, my computer?

    Just wondering what others have experienced?

    If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

    BTW, I'm still keeping track of how many times you annoy me.

    Do you refresh your computer a bunch of times? I need to do that almost every search I do with my II weeks account. I don't have destination club points, so can't address that specifically.

    Yes, I've tried everything! My Starwood account has to constantly be refreshed, in order to be sure you're not missing any available weeks. But this is different. Nothing shows up, no matter what you do.

    The only thing that has been consistent for me is searching within a 2-3 month time frame. For instance, I usually get much better results with flexchange dates. Other than that, it's been a total bust.

    BTW, the point requirement is not lowered during flexchange.

    I have never converted my weeks to points so have never tried to search with DC points.

    Do you need to have deposited points to search? I will take a look later today.

    You are mentioning picking different point amounts....could that be the issue? Maybe the lower point amounts are equal to "blue weeks" studios and thus have poor trade power???

    You can search without depositing points, even "Short Stays."

    The chart gives you the amount of points needed for various size units, and also time frame...Peak, shoulder, etc. There does not seem to be any difference in points based on rating of Premium vs Select, etc. None that I can see anyway. For instance....A studio @ The Four Seasons in July is 1000 pts. A studio @ Westgate (a "Select" resort) is the same.

    I did 5 searches with 4500 2BR and search all destinations with a Nov-May 2015 search window….and I got one error of "sorry, nothing here"
    When I refreshed….it was normal again.

    So, it's most likely my account. I will call and have II check on it. Thanks!

    Yup, I can't see any availability anywhere using 2 bdrm-4500 points. Tried every which way, a number of times.

    If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

    BTW, I'm still keeping track of how many times you annoy me.
