So i have the large side of my 2br lockoff ...and i don't know what to do with it...

If i deposit it with RCI before April 1st i get 24 TPU's
If i try to rent it....i won't get much
If i use it...well it won't be easy with work, so that might not even be an option...not sure

What would you do?

In my case I bought to rent or to use. I didnt buy to trade. .If Im not going to use it, I would try to rent and I would keep trying right up to the last minute. I would deposit it the day before check in if I failed...I know Ill get only 45% of its full trading power, but Id rather recover a few dollars of my maintenance fee than use RCI

If you can't use it and you won't get much for it if you rent, I would think your best bet would be to deposit it in RCI. That way you can use it for a future vacation or last minute getaway. 24 TPU can get some nice vacations.

Thats actually a really good point, the full point value of it is 27 so 45% off, i still get like 14-15 tpus for it...which isn't THAT bad
