Hello:

Last year I lost 11,000 FF points, because I could not use them. I am in need of 5,000 FF points so I can ad them to my 65,000 points and deposit it with RCI as one BR at high season week. Any one not using their points?

Thanks
Phil

Why not go to the Yahoo FF board and rent them from someone?

Can't you "rent" them from FF, too? $25 per 1000 sticks in my mind, but, then again, I might be thinking of something else.

Phil,
Why not just make two deposits for 28,000 pts. then you would only lose 9,000 pts this year. If you own other weeks that are deposited with RCI you can search with those weeks. Then if you find something you can always call and try the old bait and switch. Or if you start looking really early. those small weeks will pull 2 bedroom FF spacebanked resorts. I know this is a fact because I did it with three exchanges in 2005.
Good Luck!

Hi Phil

I dont think the folks that responded understand what you were looking for. I too am looking for some extra Fairfield Points. Yes, you can buy, rent, steal, or ask anothr Fairfield owner for some. Hopefully, cheaper than you can do any of the above, and or better yet, free.

I had a friend who never used or banked his points as he was not happy with the small fee's and never did understand how the point system worked, so every year, he lost 112,000 points. Lol, he was so unhappy that after paying for his resort, he gave it away, FREE.

FF will sell me or rent me or what ever you call it 1000 points for $10., if i want them now, and or $5 per point if its within 90 days of the actual booking.

Larry.

Phil,

If you need 70K points and you only have 65K, you can make a reservation that requires 70K points and borrow the 5K from next years points. The reservation would have to be within the 90 day window (I think, it maybe less) to be able to borrow to make the reservation. Cancel the reservation the next day and then you will have your 70K to make your deposit. You can't directly borrow to make deposits, but this allows you to get around that.

Be sure you inquire with FF what you can do with 'cancelled points'. I know there are restrictions on their use.
