Ever since DAE and Redweek formed the partnership, I noticed there were fewer good weeks online at the DAE web site. I compared DAE and Redweek online inventory in some regions lately. It appeared almost all DAE online weeks are listed at the Redweek web site, but some Redweek exchange weeks are not listed at DAE web site.

Both Redweek and DAE members can pull the good weeks from the DAE inventory. That can reduce the chance for the DAE members to get the good weeks. I am not sure whether I should deposit my 2009 weeks with DAE now. Would you please share your experience?

Thanks!

I'm a DAE member, but not Redweek for exchanges. I recently got a 2BR at Sheraton's Desert Oasis in Scottsdale for Thanksgiving week through DAE. I think that's a good trade. I got it through the online inventory, not through an ongoing search. It's hard to tell about 2009. Not much online yet.

I deposited a week about 6 months out with Redweek and immediately lucked out with a trade I wanted. Mine went from pending to available ()while they make sure I can deposit with them from resort mgt) and there was my trade I wanted. Same Day.

Both units were East Coast of USA. Still have some Redweek points to use leftover.

Think they might be trying to segment the market either by locale or deposit period? Redweek does not offer any bonus for a deposit and they evaluate each and every offer for Point value.

There's a network out there

The independent exchange companies have some sort of network that they use to fulfill exchange requests if possible. It's sort of like a multiple listing service that real estate companies have. Some exchange companies use them more than others.

So go ahead and put in a request for the week you want with DAE. I'm going to guess that they will ask other exchange companies in their 'network' for the week you're looking for. Getting the week will depend on who has the week you want and what DAE will have to 'pay' for it to give it to you. The week you want could very well come from redweek.com inventory.
