We are thinking to deposit a couple weeks with them. One a SA week and one a summer Myrtle Beach Week. Does anyone have any thoughts??? Thanks

They get a fair amount of interesting weeks. You have to keep watch on their inventory list, and know the areas that are worthwhile to put in requests for. They have confirmed exchanges for me next summer to the French Riviera and an English canalboat. I like the free membership and the request first system.

DAE will do everything they can to get your request for you. They work with various trading partners. I have always gotten what I wanted and know that Donita will do whatever she can to get my trade. Now isn't that different from the BIG BOYS?

DAE was the first to offer a free week as a door prize

They are terrific and seem to really care about their customers. I am looking forward to my first exchange experience with DAE.

My experience is that they are very friendly and caring about their customers indeed. However, their inventory is limited. I currently have 4 DAE credits , have (had) many requests, but ít seems to be very hard to get me a week. I expect one or two of my credits will expire unused.
I am also a RCI member and every time when I put in a request at both tradingcompanies, RCI wins.
I would recommend a request first at DAE.
