    Is there a cost to start an Ongoing Search? (Resale only owner)

    You must prepay the exchange fee in order to start on ongoing search. This is waived for RCI platinum account holders -which I believe Wyndham accounts are not eligible to upgrade to platinum accounts. Periodically RCI has promotions which allow you to start an ongoing search without pre-paying. If you don't match or accept a match or cancel the search without a match the pre-payment can be refunded to original form of payment or retained as a credit on your RCI account- your choice.

    My idea is to do an ongoing search but not deposit the points until there's a match. I see that if a match is found you have 48 hours to accept it, and I see that Wyndham says it might take 48 hours for the points you deposit to register with RCI. Do you know if a points transfer usually occurs faster than the 48 hours Wyndham is quoting?

    I’ve never had a problem depositing points in time to confirm an ongoing search match after it hits.

    Also, I think right now is one of those times where they’re allowing OGS to be set up without paying the exchange fee in advance.

    Yes "RCI instant search and book feature". It is a VIP gold and above. Our program for VIP gold and above is you can look and if you find something you can hold it for i think 24 hours to think about it. Talk it over with the dw. Also we see all available matching your criteria. So start broad.

    If you see something that is points, switch to nightly stays. Thats basicly how i use it. People are spoiled, most never owned a week period. Mine was at Fox Run, around june 14th. There wasn't anything to do but RCI, or bye, bye week . when Fox Run split with Wyndham, that was the start of points, Fairfield.

    That's not what I was referring to. Anyone can set up an ongoing search, and when it matches they will hold the reservation for (I think) 72 hours. That is plenty of time for us non-VIPs to deposit the points and confirm the trade. We were not discussing holding exchanges that appear in open inventory.
