If you do it online, it does. See below.




Yes, you are.



see above


If you try to book a reservation from an April UY 2017 points for a reservation such as below the system will not let you do it. I just attempted to book it and have copied and pasted the response. Sure, I can call MS. The point I am making is that the owner the OP is referring to did not have his/her facts straight. Perhaps they did something such as this online and never bothered to call MS, just told the OP they had to wait another month to get the points. I don't know. The owner sounds ill-informed to me.

Except the crossing UY's is not about "waiting for points". As mentioned a CM can do it so that demonstrates it's not waiting for points. There is something about online - probably somebody felt it was too confusing for owners - but that was a programmers or management decision to prohibit it online and make an owner wait on a new 11 or 7 month window to open up. As with all reservations it's about the booking window, not about waiting for points to be deposited.

Oh, I know that. But from the sounds of what the OP is saying, it doesn't sound if the owner knows. That is my point. Either that or he used it as an excuse.

When I wrote that, I was doing it from the mindset of what the OP said the owner had told him - not what I know. Maybe that makes it more clear? Guess I should have written it differently but I was trying to think of how the owner could have come up with what he told the OP.

No I get you now! Text can be difficult sometimes. What is in our mind only goes to text, no facial expressions or tones to get. What you said makes sense to me
