    A week’s stay at a timeshare for under $400 with RCI or Interval International

    In order to keep my costs down living in timeshares all year round, I use both RCI and Interval international for special deals. Usually this means that I book timeshares within two months of my stay. This is when timeshares that have excess capacity lower their prices. I will be doing a...

    Interval International Platinum Escapes

    Hi all - Would someone kindly walk me through the 'clicks' on the II site to find the Platinum Escapes? I have a Platinum membership but don't see where to find them. (It's probably right under my nose) Thank you in advance.

    Our Independent is signing w/ II

    I received wonderful news that our Independent TS in the Sierras was able to secure a deal w/ II. Wonderful news because I have not been thrilled w/ RCI. It’s our only resort in 2. The TPUs are never enough since we are tied to school schedule. And I do like II platform better. Can’t wait...

    Marriott buying Hyatt/Interval TS
  14. tahoeJoe

    Has Anyone done the math?

    Hyatt is both a weeks and a points program. As such if a weeks owner trades through Interval they use their associated Hyatt points to secure a studio, one bedroom, etc. The larger units require more points. However, in a pure weeks based ownership (Marriott, Vistana, etc) if one trades their...

    II's E-Trade Plus with HRC points

    Does anyone have experience with using Intervals E-plus on an exchange using HRC points? I have used E-plus with my Marriott weeks and if I confirm a re-trade within 60-day of arrival there is no additional fees for a larger sized unit.

    Unit Number when Exchanging a Marriott Property on II

    I am trying to exchange into Interval a week that I have. I know I've seen this before but what are they looking for when they ask for Unit Number. If I remember right it was a 4-character code like ABCD or something along those lines. Where do I find this code? Thanks in advance. :)
