    Yes. As long as you bought from the developer or from Marriott Resale, which I did.

    That's true. I guess Vistana was relatively innovative in creating that system of a home resort and internal points trading right off the bat.

    These new programs give Vistana a great opportunity to create more inventory to sell with existing resorts/units, but I just wonder if they could have made it a bit simpler from the start, as now you have several different programs and purchasing methods for a single timeshare company.

    So the rule hasn't changed. The purchased prior to date is not December 2017, it is June 2010. As long as one purchased an external resale week prior to June 2010 or purchased a true developer week (not a Marriott Resales week) you can enroll the week in the Destinations Club program. Not necessarily sure why December 2017 was mentioned as that date really has no relevance on if you can enroll or not. Marriott has been offering some deals lately where people can enroll for varying fees or often for free with a presentation or Encore Package purchase.
