    Does anyone know the best way to use up your RCI Savings Dollars? Seems like you got to spend a lot to use them up. Any advice?

    I tried using for restaurant certificate and restaurant argued they had cancelled their relations with the program. Arg. Every now and then in the mall you will see stuff drastically cheaper than even something Amazon may have, but this is very limited. Basically they are worthless. If the were worth money they would let you use them for exchange fees :)

    To me, not much value.

    The only one time I thought I would use was for a 2 night stay at a hotel I was paying out of pocket for. I got a slightly cheaper room than I could find anywhere else using the Savings Dollar (like less than $20 cheaper). But they had a better cancellation policy.

    In the end, I cancelled anyway. So, it worked out booking the room, but still never used any.

    I had the same kind of experience. Savings dollars are monopoly money and have very little value IMO.
