Hello again. Today I wanted to blog about getting the most flexibility out of the new RCI Weeks exchange system. Over the years, our subscribing members have told us that they want more flexibility from their RCI Weeks membership and now we are doing exactly that. We have just introduced enhancements that give our members many more choices when making an exchange.
Consider this: you have a Deposit with a trading power of 20. You find an exchange vacation you want with a trading power of 15. You confirm that vacation (never wait as it may not be available later!) and immediately get a Deposit Credit on your account that has a trading power of 5.
Now, take that Deposit Credit with a trading power of 5 and search for a second exchange vacation. There are plenty of exchange vacation choices in the system with an Exchange Trading Power of 5. Find and confirm that second vacation and you have successfully used your one, original deposit to get 2 vacations. Pretty cool!
Now, take the original example in which your Deposit has a trading power of 20. What happens if you find a great exchange vacation but it has an Exchange Trading Power of 25? No problem! You have at least 2 choices here. You can use any Deposit Credits you have on your account and combine them with your unused Deposit and hopefully that will give you enough trading power to obtain that exchange vacation with a trading power of 25. OR, you can deposit your next year’s vacation week, and combine it together with your current unused Deposit to have more Deposit Trading Power to be able to confirm that exchange vacation with higher Exchange Trading Power.
The icing on the cake is that even after combining your Deposits and confirming the exchange; you still get a Deposit Credit on your account for the difference between the trading power of the Deposit you used and the trading power of the exchange vacation.
One piece of advice, don’t ever let your Deposit Credits or Deposits expire. You never know when you are going to need that extra Deposit Trading Power to book the exchange vacation that you want. For more information on combining deposits, check out our educational videos on RCI TV or visit Inside RCI.
How will you use this new flexibility? Any ideas?
