Looking at your resort, I would say that you don't get trading power. You have bluegreen points and you use a grid based on size and season to determine how many bluegreen points for an rci exchange.

If you own something else tell me the resort, size and reserved week and I can look it up if you cannot through RCI.

I can look it up through RCI.com. I guess I just need to know where I can find that information. I searched around but I could;t find anything.

After you log in click on Manage my Deposits in the Home tab.
To the right you will see the deposit calculator. Or you should see the trading power for your fixed weeks or there is a deposit calculator next to your float weeks.

We currently have this

Goldenwoods Condominiums at Powderhorn Resort
Resort ID: 1528
Rel #: 00028
Unit: 101B
BR(s): 2
Max Occ / Priv: 6 / 6
Start Date: 27-Jun-2015

We want to go to Hawaii maybe in September. Is that possible with our current Deposit Trading Power of 16?

Please forgive my ignorance. I just started learning.

Looking at September right now everything is between 24-42. 16 would probably be too low for an exchange except for last minute.

I also have Bluegreen (Pono Kai, week 29, 2bed 2bath, ocean front, A208) and another timeshare at Dolphin's Cove Anaheim, floating week 2bed, 2bath and ability to reserve week 52 (resort #7602). I am considering joining RCI to combine both units. Could you please calculate my TPU for both of these units so that I can decide weather it's worth the expense.

TPU Power Looks Pretty Good

Pono Kai, week 29, 2bed 2bath, ocean front, A208

TPU Maximum appears to be 35 so that is what it would be for 2017 (the 2016 power is dropping as the date gets nearer with it currently at 32)


Dolphin's Cove Anaheim, floating week 2bed, 2bath and ability to reserve week 52 resort #7602

If you could deposit the week 52 then the power would be 56 TPU if other weeks it just depends. - I think I checked week 6 or 7 and it was 41 for those...still pretty good.
