    I own at SSR and now AKV (both small contracts 50/55), both with August UY

    I'm thinking ahead for 6/2010 - may want AKV 1 bd SV (150 for 5 nights)
    I will have:
    55 AKV points 09/10
    55 AKV points 10/11 (borrow)

    Can I use 40 SSR points banked from 08/09 UY (Aug.) at the 11 month window since they are banked? Or can they still not be used at AKV until the 7 month mark?

    We're considering other options (split stay between THV and AKV, etc.), but I should know how using banked points works, regardless of whether we want to use them this trip or not!

    At 11 months, only points (banked, borrowed or current) from AKV may be used to make a reservation at that resort. At 7 months, you may use points from SSR and other resorts.

    You can reallocate your SSR points into the reservation at 7 months - as long as there is still availability. If there is a waitlist, you won't likely be allowed to switch non-home points into a reservation made at 11 months.

    Good luck! :)

    Points can only be used at a non-home resort 7 months out, no matter if they are banked, borrowed or current UY.
