    I recently read some posts that stated that you can join rci without owning a timeshare week or points. Today I called and confirmed it .Then I called II and they have a simular program called leisure time passport.A friend recently asked me to check on any resales at a good price I told him not to bother to just join rci& II and use whats available on thier last calls and extra vacations,which was plenty.The point of this post is if these programs continue to expand I can see alot more Timeshares being dumped.I'm not taking about your Hard to get into /peak season/great places close to home or top traders but just about everthing else.Does anyone else see this as a threat or a problem if you own a timeshare?

    Is the Leisure Time Passport something that the developer gives to somebody who didn't buy the first time they toured? And it's temporary to try it out is what I thought.

    Yes one year gold memberships are being sold by Westgate and some other developers. I don't know how much they are but you can also buy them on ebay $199.This still comes to less than mf's especialy if you use more than 1 week. I think RCI is only $89 per year

    Here's an auction on ebay advertising it. It's through GMAC:

    Sounds like it gives you access to the Getaways. I don't know at what kind of cost, though. Plus, it sounds like there is a time limit on the trial membership and they are wanting to sell you a timeshare. It says they will credit the $199 toward your timeshare purchase if you buy one from them.

    Interesting- because I called II a few months ago with the same inquiry and was told no.

    I wonder if the membership being offerred through GMAC on Ebay has the same listings/prices as a regular membership, or if the listings are more akin to condodirect. etc. (subsidiaries/affiliates of II).
