    Seeking information on RCI Points

    We had a two bedroom lockout (two units with 2 bedrooms) at Woodstone at Masanutten in Virginia. A few years ago we switched from weeks to points, at some cost. It generated 130,000 points each year and maintenance fee was about $800. We traded our Woodstone unit as part of the down payment...

    Want information on points

    We owned a four bedroom lockout at Woodstone in Massanutten for about 20 years, I think. Although fees were rising, sometimes we could rent it, and it served as well as a low key place to relax or let our son ski, etc. A year or so ago we gave up our units as partial payment for an Estate at...

    Having trouble setting up OGS (Ongoing Search) in RCI Points

    I cannot figure out how to set up an ongoing search in RCI. If I put in a specific resort that has no availability, an option for an ongoing search shows up briefly, but won't let me click on it. Instead, the website defaults to showing me all availability worldwide. This is very...

    RCI offering to merge 2 separate accounts

    Hi, We have 2 separate RCI accounts for 2 timeshares and RCI has always said we could not combine them, when I asked previously. Now they are offering to combine them but are adamant that one specific one has to be collapsed. In my opinion the one they want to collapse is the more valuable...

    Worth it to upgrade to RCI Points?

    We have a fixed week that we can covert to RCI points for a hefty fee. We also have Wyndham Points with RCI Nightly Stay access. Would we be able to access significantly more RCI Points inventory (e.g. Keys) with RCI Points compared to what we would get via Wyndham's RCI Nightly Stay?
