Forgive me if this has been explained elsewhere ... Bluegreen member here, searching for RCI points exchange. To initiate an OGS, the fee is $209. I understand this is refundable if no matches are made, but my question is if a match is made, does the $209 cover my exchange fee? I don't mind paying for an ongoing search, but $200+ seems like a lot to search for just a few properties. Thanks for any clarification.

$209 is the exchange fee. If you get a match, that covers the exchange.
I currently have three searches in place and only one $209 fee is required.
If I match one, they use the $209 but the other searches will still continue. If I match a second one, I would have to pay another $209.

BTW, RCI week exchanges are $209 for 7 days.
RCI Point exchange (thru BG) is $79 for 1-3 days, $149 for 3-6 days and $159 for 7-14 days. Different ownerships have different fee structures I believe
