    Hello, my two resale gold weeks finally hit my interval account:cheer:, and I need to exchange one of them, as we will not be able to use the week reserved.

    Looking to do a family vacation to Yosemite 2020. Since I will need to trade in either RCI or II, which exchange will actually give us the best options. Currently waiting for our Westin resale to finalize so I can start the booking process. TIA

    Marriott weeks deposit expiring July 15

    I have a 1 bedroom deposit expiring July 15, but my family won't be able to take vacation until 1st half of August. Would it be better to extend the week or exchange for something and then get a E-plus? I have not done either in the past. Thanks a lot for your help, Jane
