    No they do not expire..However would suggest you add or use points once every year or so in case the rules change!!!

      Actually there is a maybe, in that no activity after a certain period of time may cancel the Marriott Rewards account.  If in doubt call the Rewards line for clarification.

        SS:

         

        Agreed, it is a two year timeframe for inactivity.

        See Item #8 for answer to point/account expiration.

          Wonder if you can be reinstated if dropped?  I know the airlines have a provision for this.

            Good question. Maybe the 'powers' can weigh in. There's nothing in the T&C that I saw to address re-instatement. My guess would be probably not because all the changes in their programs I have encountered regarding points are to get them to expire. Expiration = less liability. The timeshare program as re-done has points expiring after two years whether you use them or not.....no extension even with activity. Use them or lose them.

              That's a bummer but beneficial to Marriott Vacation Club I am sure.  Don't they change names at the start of 2012?

                New management team takes over as of November 1 of this year I believe. I didn't take the bait to join the new timeshare 'Points' program, so my weeks/points aren't subject to expiration.

    Under the Terms and Conditions of the Program, if there is no point activity over a two (2) year period, Marriott reserves the right to expire any points at that time. However, I doubt they would do it but one never knows.....

     

    If you have a Marriott Visa and buy something...the points addition from purchases does keep the activity calendar window moving.
