In this system, my understanding is that if you deposit you week, the week deposited is 'chosen' for you. However, if you have a deeded week - Is that the week they must deposit? And do you get to make your reservations a little earlier with a deeded week?

A few in S and VA, a single resort in NC, MD, PA, and UT, plus Jamaica and the Bahamas
With a true fixed week, your actual week is deposited into II. There are very few fixed weeks system wide. Most are float weeks or fixed/float. Starwood does not pick a week for you. You get the blended value of all the weeks in your season at your resort.

There is no actual week deposited - you basically get a deposit "credit."

However, if you have a deeded week - Is that the week they must deposit?

All weeks are deeded - I think you mean "fixed" or "floating" week - if it's a true fixed week, meaning you own and can use one specific week only, then they have to deposit that specific week.

And do you get to make your reservations a little earlier with a deeded week?

True fixed week - automatically reserved for you about 18 mos. before check-in - the date is fixed.

Floating week - you can make a home resort reservation 12-8 mos. before check-in.

What RESORT are you considering? - most do not have true fixed weeks in the Starwood system.

Its been a few years since I deposited a week, but i recall that you can request a different week, even a different resort then your ownership to help get a desired trade.

For example, if you owned within the Orlando area, but wanted to trade back into that area......to avoid a black-out, you cold have a WKV or WMH unit deposited to help get your trade. Not sure if this has changed.

It has changed - now you get a generic credit. Also - there is no Orlando blackout with II - that's RCI. To my knowledge, WKV and WMH are not affiliated with RCI.

SDO. It seems the week would be deeded, but it actually floats. Not a true fixed week.

Unless you buy in the new Flexoption program, ALL Starwood ownerships are "deeded" - that just means you get a deed for one week at the resort - it has nothing to do with floating or fixed.

SDO was sold as floating weeks. There is a week listed on the deed, but that is just for titling purposes - they aren't true fixed weeks.

A "true fixed week" is a deed in which you get the same week every year, it's fixed, and the reservation date cannot be changed.
