Timeshare resorts offer different plans for using their units. One of the options is the points-based vacation plan.

Learn more about this system and why many owners want to sell their points.

In order to gain popularity and reduce its bad reputation, the timeshare industry found itself obligated to innovate its timeshare systems.

 Nowadays, there are different plans to buy a timeshare, and one of the most popular is the points system.

Timeshares were first sold as fixed weeks. That means the owner has the right to use the unit during a specific week each year.

If the owner wished to stay more than a week, or bring along more people and guests, he had to buy another week.

Timeshares worked like this for a long time, but being this complicated and inflexible, we needed to think of something new to attract more customers.  

After, the fixed-weeks system, floating time was introduced. With the floating time, timeshare owners had the opportunity to stay at the resort during a specific season, and the week period was no longer fixed, but determined by the year's season.

Now, the points system is gaining popularity.

This article will explain more about the points system and why there are so many timeshare points for sale.

Timeshare Points System

Timeshare points system was introduced as a way to innovate in the timeshare industry.

This vacation plan has been introduced in recent years.

The points system allows the use of the unit in different seasons each year, and not only for fixed weeks, like most timeshares do.

In this concept, the club members acquire a number of annually allocated points.

These points are used to exchange for holiday accommodations.

Advantages of the points system:

  •  It is much more flexible than the fixed-week program
  • You may choose your location
  • You may choose the size of the unit
  •  You may choose the length of your stay

Disadvantages of the points system:

  • There is no guarantee you will be able to book a certain week due to the FCFS (first-come-first-serve) basis, so you have to make reservations with long anticipation.
  • There’s a high fee for joining a Points Club
  •  There are annual fees you have to pay, even if you don’t use the unit
  • The value of the points will decrease from the first purchase price, as happens with a regular timeshare.
  •  If you don’t use them, points can expire
  • They never seem to be enough. Most times, you have to buy additional points to exchange your timeshare, stay at a bigger unit, or stay for a longer period.

Points vs. Weeks and Timeshare points for Sale

There’s been lots of chatting about which system is best, and the points system seems to be more accepted than the week program, even if the fixed weeks are still more known.

For week owners, the cost to converting weeks to points is very high.

Because of the flexibility of the points system, many timeshare owners would be happy to convert their weeks to points, but the fee they have to pay is absurdly high.

Nevertheless, both programs are essentially the same: It’s still a timeshare. These are some companies and organizations where you can find some timeshare points for sale:

  •  RCI Points®
  •  Wyndham Fairfield Resorts
  •  World Mark
  •  Disney 
  •  Marriott 
  •  Hilton 

The amount of points required to stay at a certain type of unit, or for a certain period, will vary depending on the points value system provided by the resort.

As well as with regular timeshare units, there are numerous timeshare points for sale on different websites, and the price on the resale market is way less than the original purchase price.

If you are a point owner willing to sell your timeshare points, there are a number of websites where you can list them, such as eBay, RedWeek or TUG’s, but don’t expect to sell them easily.

Timeshare points are hard to sell, and there are still many people who don’t understand how they work.

On the other hand, if you want to buy timeshare points, it is always better to buy them from the resale market than straight from the developer.

Nevertheless, if you are looking to save money, timeshare points are not an option. Travel agencies make vacation packages that end up being cheaper than owning a timeshare, without any commitment to a resort.

We are not telling you not to buy timeshare points, but before making any purchase, it is important that you understand all the terms and conditions a timeshare contract establishes, and how the timeshare points system works.

Want to get rid of your timeshare points?

Regardless of how timeshares are presented, either as a fixed-week program or a points-based system, it is a fact that there are a huge number of timeshare owners who want to cancel their contracts.
