Everytime I think I understand how things work I get myself confused again! We are looking to try for a reservation at HHI for next summer. We can go most any time from May through September. Mid October is the first time the 7 month window opens for our dates. We have a December UY. I have 50 points left in the 2012 UY. I already borrowed 100 points from my 2012 UY. Am I correct in thinking that come mid October I can only book a reservation using my 50 points? If I wait until December 1st I could use the 50 points in the 2012 UY and borrow 100 for the 2013 UY? Assuming my statements above are correct can I book using the 50 points and still be able to cancel my reservation later and bank those points? __________________

I thought that as long as the reservation was after your 2012 UY, you would be able to borrow from your 2013 UY? It doesn't matter when you make the reservation. It's when you stay and actually use the points that counts.

I'm not sure why you would want to bank the 2012 points into your 2013 UY. If you do that, you would not be able to use them for a reservation that starts before Dec. 2013.

Since you'll be staying during May-Sept 2013, you will be using 2012 points and borrowed 2013 UY points. This has nothing to do with when you actually MAKE the reservation. Do NOT wait until December to make your reservation (unless of course you decide not to go until July). You can start making reservation for next May NOW, using your 50 2012 & any/all borrowed-2013 points... Edited to change "banked" to "borrowed"... __________________ July '12 Swan/SSR, Dec '11 Kidani, April '09 off-site, May '07 off-site, July '86 off-site , , , ,
