How to use my last pesky invisible deposit?

I've got a value season studio deposit that expires in December 2012...a year left to use it. But what a hassle calling Rci's Wyndham desk to beg them to allow me to use those deposits for anything decent.

Question...what's the best exchange you recently got with a banked invisible Wyn deposit worth 28-42K Wyn pts?

Another question...what TPU value do you think a 28K Wyn invisible deposit might have?

I have a 6 TPU exchange on hold, and I'm wondering whether to use a 7-TPU deposit that expires in June 2012 or to use the invisible Wyndham deposit expiry Dec 2012 just to get rid of it/to be done with it. (Yep I know RCI's exchange fees are going up Jan 1...so I want to make my decision this coming week to save ten bucks.) TIA for opining on what you'd do in this situation! :hi:

I used my last one to reserve Vacation Village at Bonaventure, Weston FL (#4025) 1-BR for March 2012. Probably worth about 9-10 in TP

I had a value season studio that expires 3/31/12. I booked the Desert Club Resort, Las Vegas (Old Summer Bay?) in a two bedroom March 25-April 1, 2012. I think the TPU value at the time was 8.

I had another value season studio that also expires 3/31/12 and paid a fee to extend it until May 11, 2012 in exchange for a two bedroom at Wyndham Kingsgate. This has a TPU value of 10.

I still have one high season studio expiring 3/31/12 to use. I will need to extend it also.

28k was confirmed as 10 a while back because of rci glitch. As the process is manual, it is the CSR's discretion to bump it up by 1-2 points.

Thank you all. I think I'll hold out on using the invisible one...maybe I can get a "tenner" out of it. (I just made that up..."tenner"=10 TPU trade). :hi:
