Stay tuned for more information on how to save your expiring ClubPoints!
When Do Hilton Grand Vacations ClubPoints Expire?
Your current year’s ClubPoints expire on December 31st at 11:59PM eastern time each year. No matter which method you decide to use, be sure to take action well before this date to avoid losing them.
It’s recommended to set a calendar reminder to alert you a few weeks before the end of the year to ensure you have enough time to decide how to preserve your ClubPoints. With that said, let’s explore your options!
Saving ClubPoints For Next Year
If you have ClubPoints that are set to expire at the end of the year, one option is to simply save them for next year. This can be a good idea if you’re not sure what you want to do with your points yet, or if you know you’ll have a use for them in the near future.
It’s important to remember that saved, or banked, points are still subject to expiration at the end of the following calendar year, so be sure to travel with the saved points within the next calendar year.
Converting ClubPoints to Hilton Honors Points
Another option for preserving your expiring ClubPoints is to convert them to Hilton Honors points. Hilton Honors points allow you to stay at the wide network of Hilton hotels, so this can be a great way to keep your points alive and travel to places that don’t feature any HGV resorts yet.
It’s important to remember that HGV club points can be converted for use immediately or for use in the next calendar year, so be sure to use the right method for conversion on your member dashboard.
Depositing ClubPoints into RCI for an Exchange
If you’re a member of Hilton Grand Vacations Club, you also have access to the RCI exchange program. This program allows you to deposit your points into your RCI account, which can then be used to book exchanges at RCI-affiliated resorts.
This is a great option if you’re looking for a way to save your points and extend their life, as RCI deposits won’t expire for the following 2 years. It’s also a good option if you’re not sure what you want to do with your points yet, as you can always use them for an exchange later on.
Choosing the Best Option for You
When it comes to saving your expiring ClubPoints, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. The best option for you will depend on your personal circumstances and what you plan to do with your points.
If you’re not sure what you want to do with your points yet, but you’re confident you will be traveling to one of the many Hilton Grand Vacations resorts next year, saving them for next year is always a great option.
If you think you may be traveling to a resort that is affiliated with RCI in the next 2 years, you can’t go wrong with depositing them into RCI for an exchange.
If you’re looking for a way to use ClubPoints to travel to Hilton Hotels, converting them to Hilton Honors points could be the right choice for you.
