It is difficult to understand why the system has to be mysterious. The points system is completely transparent. You know how many points you have and how many points it takes to trade to the resort of your choice. Why cannot RCI make the weeks system similar? Tell us the trading power of our weeks. Tell us what power it takes to get a week somewhere else. The most plausible reason why RCI does not do that is that they want us all to pay them a bundle to join the points system. Or, perhaps I am paranoid.
