I am a Platinum Elite member of many years and really enjoy redeeming my rewards points with family each year. I always get something that makes us very happy. I have been thinking about joining m\Marriott Vacation Club.Ive held off because after reading comments on this site, it seems nowhere near the easy expereince that redeeming points at a choice loaction has been. Can someone give me a heads up on this? Im worried about spending money on a less than happy outcome. Thanks!
