I find it highly insulting that an increase in points required for a redemption does not lead to an increase in points awarded for a MVCI owner turning in their unit for points. This will make the points option worthless (as it already has for me), and there will be no advantage to buying a MVCI unit from Marriott. There will also be an increase in units turned in for resales, further hurting Marriott's efforts to sell the units at "retail" and driving down the value (and selling price of units) further. Bad move, Marriott. In times like these, you hold the line on stuff like this, and raise point requirements when no one's looking.
