View Full Version : Time window for banking??

03-18-2002, 04:21 PM
If we buy a Dec use year resale, is it too late to bank the available 2002 points already? Ie, does 9 months fall March 1 or March 31 or some other date? Any help appreciated greatly! Thanks.:confused:

The banking deadlines for a December Use Year are 100% by May 31....50% by August 31.....25% by September 30. You can't bank between October 1 and November 30.

Just to add a little to what PamOKW has already said:

The 2002 points would be those added to the account on 12/1/2002. You would have until May 31, 2003 to bank 100% of them into the 2003 use year.

If you were talking about the points that went into the account on 12/1/2001 (These would be the 2001 use year points), you would have until May 31, 2002 to bank 100% of those points into the 2002 use year.

If you do not bank or borrow, the 2001 points are good for stays between 12/1/2001 and 11/30/2002.

If you do not bank or borrow, the 2002 points are good for stays between 12/1/2002 and 11/30/2003.

PamOKW and CarolMN,
Thanks so much for the clear information! Sounds like it's 6months then instead of 9mos. That's great news. I am shopping and researching for/with my sister (who is a Twin City neighbor CarolMN!) and it's getting very exciting as she figures out exactly what will work for her. I fell in love with OKW on my last trip and am very glad that's where she wants to buy.

One thing to keep in mind - you can't bank until your contract closes. So you have to leave enough time for the paperwork to go through.

You might want to have the present owner bank those points for you if you think you won't have enough time till you close.
