Then a few days later, I cancelled the whole thing. Anyone care to guess what happened to the holding points? They went poof. Re-categorized as whole bankable points.

This is of course left me with the wondering with the following sort of scenario...

I have 10 holding points

I have a reservation for 12/20-25/2019 (it is within the 60 days).

I go to modify the reservation and select new days 12/20-25

It pulls up all the days available, because they are because I booked them. I select them and go to book.

It asks which contracts. And I choose my holding points.

Bye Bye holding points.

Interesting experience.
Very interesting. Your theory sounds like it should work if the system does consider the modification as essentially a new reservation. Thanks for sharing your experience.

A few days later I cancelled the reservation in its entirety, so about 40 days out.

The holding points were then re-classified as regular points.
We've never had points go into holding. How do you know that your points were re-classified as regular?

Nice workaround to know about. Last year we had to cancel two reservations and ended up with holding points.

We used them with little problem, but this info is very interesting. Hopefully another ten years will go by before I need it.

In the point rundown, it shows I no have zero holding points and the points now show up as current use year, bankable points.

Interesting! I don't plan on having any holding points ever, but life happens sometimes, so I am sure I will forgot about this trick if I ever need it. Hopefully not, and thanks for sharing your experiences.
