Hello

Mysteriously today I see an AC in my II account (via VSN) no deposit was made. No cancellations from Covid19. Anybody else? Too good to be true? II Stimulus package ;)?

These are what we call "freebie" ones. You just get them. II has been doing this for a few years now.
Just pay the exchange fee. Great deals out there, I spotted a bunch of thanksgiving weeks this morning with that new one.

There is only one place to look. If you don't see it, perhaps they haven't put them all out there.

Ironically, I called II the day before yesterday to ask them about Choose 2, which is pretty crappy BTW. Their grid still only goes through July and no Marriott or Sheraton weeks available with that program. He mentioned certificates and that they would likely see Marriott deposits, though would cost a bit more. I agreed, we have already booked two of them. I then asked if they ever know when more of the freebie ones will drop, and he said they aren't told. Lo and behold, we get one in each of our accounts the next day! So you all have me to thank for these :)

I'll put you on my Christmas card list when I get one. I had two trips booked with ACs that I had to cancel during the shutdown and was offered much more powerful ACs in return which I used to book Grand Solmar for Labor Day week and Marriott Oceana Palms in August. So I've got two great resorts for less than $300 each (I think one was only $229). I'm all booked up for the year and have a couple trips already booked for next year.

I'm perfectly happy to squeeze another trip in though!
