I learned everything I know from PAT (grayfal) so credit where credit is due.
Here is what I do. I first make a great reservation (like 4th July). I don't say anything to the rep at the time. OR, if you have a well deeded week already, then the reservation is not necessary.
Then, I call Starwood Owner services and say that I would like to have my (reserved or deeded) week deposited in II. I am really nice about it but mention right away that my unit is NOT in SVN and therefore I would like to have my exact week deposited.
They always say they can't because they have a special II "team" that does the deposits. I say that because I am not in SVN, I actually "own" the week I reserved and therefore I would like to have that very week deposited (due to good trading...). I tell them that in the past, they put me on hold and contacted their "II department" to have my very week deposited. In the past, they have "created" special weeks that are my exact reserved week and have deposited those in II.
I usually hear confusion (hmmmm, we've never done that before...) so I just keep saying over and over again that I am NOT in SVN and by my contract I am entitled to the week I have deeded/reserved. I basically just repeat myself over and over again and keep asking that they put me on hold while they contact their II people to do the deposit.
I have always been very nice about it and usually the reps are very nice too. But I find that I need to be on the phone for a while (I set aside my driving commute in the morning, LOL). And I just say the same thing over and over and over again!
1) I have reserved/have my deeded week
2) Not in SVN so this week is "mine"
3) Need to create this week in II for me especially so please put me on hold and contact the II deposit department and they will know what to do
4) I have done this in the past many times
5) It is in my contract that as a resale owner I can do this.
That's it. Just say it all nicely and politely and over and over and over again till you get what you want. I have yet to even have to talk to a manager.
I have deposited Falls, PGA and SDO this way with absolutely no problems at all. But you definitely cannot call and ask for a range of weeks. You can only ask for either your deeded or reserved week. Otherwise you are out of luck.
