Got an interesting DAE offer e-mail. If you have a deposit at another exchange company, they will give you a DAE deposit credit for $199. So, it's like getting a bonus week for $199 + exchange fee - seems like a good deal! Call by August 31.

Here are the details copied from the e-mail:

Do you have an open credit with another exchange company, but want to take a vacation to one of DAE's worldwide destinations?

We'll give you credit for that deposit in our DAE system for just $199!

Proof of outstanding credit is required and this is a call-in special only.
Deposit credits will be issued and will expire 1 year after the outstanding
credit is to expire.

Interesting. I have opened my DAE account while ago, but never really look into this company. Will take a look into it. I'm taking 2 months off right now before starting my next new job, so i don't mind to travel one more time before that...
