    RCI has extended the continuing promotion of combining weeks and receiving a 24-month extension before expiration. The last one was announced late December 2017 with an expiration of 31 March 2018. This time it's not so generous, with an expiration of 21 April 2018. I have a combinable week expiring in April, so this allows me to combine next month and then place an OGS for April 2020. I would not be surprised to see this extended again, so I have a note to call around 20 April for an update.

    I had the pleasure of informing one of the RCI Weeks agents of that yesterday. She was trying to sell me on the combine by 3/31 promo, but I had already seen the extension on the website. You'd think they would tell them these things.

    I have two deposits expiring in July 2018 that I would like to combine. What do you think the chances are that RCI will extend this promotion until July?

    This has been a continuous promotion for at least a year (formerly standard practice). I would log onto your RCI account on 21 April (Vacation Search and Deposits, Manage my Deposits) and check for an alert to see if this has been extended once again (highly likely).

    I'm debating whether to combine now (5 months earlier than I need to) or take my chances that they'll have another offer between now and the end of September. If they don't, I'll have to combine next time 7 months earlier than I would if I combine today.

    My crystal ball is fuzzy on whether there will be another offer.

    I contacted RCI by chat tonight asking about the possibility of them extending the promotion again. This is what the agent typed back to me.

    No that promotion will not be offered again. The rules for combining are getting ready to change. After tomorrow, there is going to be 2 options when you combine where you can combine for 1 year or 2. 1 year will be $129 and 2 years will be $179. That stinks....guess I'll go ahead and combine, I'll lose two months but I'll save $50.

    Just checked after they updated the RCI website, it is $129 for a one year combine and $179 for a two year.

    And for Canadians - in loonies - GST / HST included

    12 months $ 181 CAD
    24 months $ 251 CAD

    FYI - the fee to extend a deposit for 12 months is the same as combining
    so better to combine if you have multiple deposits .

    There are shorter extend time frames for lesser amounts.

    I waited a bit too long to take advantage of this promotion. I kept hoping they would offer it again, but I haven't seen any new offers. I have until August to extend and combine my deposits. Busy summer ahead, so I hope I don't forget.
