    Points vs Weeks

    I owned a week, and was just upsold into upgrading to points (I still have my week but can use its points now). I paid a lot for the upgrade. Did I get scammed? Related and really important question, how many RCI points does an average week in a 2-bedroom unit cost?

    What exactly does a week number assignment along with floating mean?

    Brand New to Tugs. I was gifted a 13 week (weeks) timeshare; studio.. Attitash Grand Summit. Joined RCI and signed up as a Platinum member. I do not use the timeshare since I own a home nearby. So I put all 13 weeks into the timeshare rental program. If I were to do nothing else with the...
