    I followed up with the company about a week ago since I had not received an email or anything from RCI. She said they were probably busy and that she would send them an email at the end of the week to check on the status.

    Of course yesterday was a holiday but still, does RCI usually take this long to transfer? I've not done this so I have no frame of reference.

    Still no word or any email from RCI. It was 5/13/19 when the broker sent the email saying she had signed me up for RCI. 5/21/19 Dawn said RCI was probably backed up. So I've been patient, but this seems excessive. I emailed again requesting an update. I'll keep the thread updated as I find out more info.

    I would not be patient with RCI. I would call and escalate.

    As of Friday June 14th I finally got the email from RCI. I'm not familiar with the way the exchanges work, so bear with me. I'm showing my timeshare in there and it says I get 21 Deposit Trading Power if I were to deposit either my 2020 or my 2021 week. My DTP credits balance is 2. So it sounds like the previous owner deposited the 2019 that I was supposed to have use of and used 19 of them.

    I haven't decided if I'm going to complain to the broker or not. I really don't think the broker knew ahead of time, but then again they are the ones who represented the sale as having 2019 usage. When I bought it I knew there was a chance the 2019 was a bust, so I'm not put out that much. I have to decide if it's worth the hassle.

    To top it all, I notice in the RCI platform it shows "RCI Weeks Membership Valid Thru: 30 Jun 2019." So I'll have to pay for a year of RCI just to use my 2 measly points? By my calculations my $430 in MF earns me 21 DTP units, so that makes a unit worth $20.48 each. So paying $99 to keep those two units seems like a very bad deal since there's nothing I can do with them prior to June 30th. Are my calculations sound? I appreciate any input.

    Of course if I think I will use RCI in the future maybe I'll keep it anyway but really wasn't to keen on the idea. I guess I have 10 days to decide ... tick tock tick.. LOL

    I would contact Timeshares4u / Dawn and let them know and ask for a reimbursement of 2019 MF or prepayment of 2020 MF.
