I sold all of my Wyndham contracts over the past few months but before I did I deposited some points into RCI.
I used to access my RCI points through the Wyndham site but now have no access to the Wyndham site.
I can call RCI to use the points but I (nor RCI) can figure out how I can access my RCI points through the internet.
Anyone have any suggestions?

You are lucky you can access RCI by calling. My understanding was that once you sold your last contract your access would be taken away as no one is paying for the account any longer and they did not have a way to start self paying. The advice generally is not to leave anything in RCI when you lose RCI access (transferring last contract) or transferring it to another persons RCI wyndham account.

Since your RCI is associated with Wyndham ownership, aka Corporate RCI account, you would lose everything in RCI when you have no more Wyndham timeshare.

Where can go to see the RCI points on the Wyndham website. I have been trying to figure that out so that I can use them.

RCI Points and Wyndham points are two entirely different systems. I don't see how you deposited RCI Points into a Wyndham account. Are you talking about your weeks you deposited?

I deposited some Wyndham points that I had not used into RCI.

I believe it is in the exchange tab but I no longer have a Wyndham account so don’t know for sure.

So I could have transfered to another RCI/Wyndham account but not to one of my other RCI accounts affiliated with any other resort?

I would call RCI Points and see if the deposited points even exist anymore. Then see if they can be associated with any other RCI account you have. For years, we have told people that as long as people keep paying for RCI membership, the little details of resort ownership is overlooked, and cash stays- like Last Calls- can continue to be booked. I know your situation is different, but maybe, by talking to a supervisor, there might be a way to rescue those points and continue your membership. It will cost the annual fee, iirc about $125/yr that you would pay instead of it being included in the Wyndam monthly nut. Oh, and the $239 exchange fee to redeem those points.

Worth a try anyway.

Wyndham points deposited with RCI can not be transferred or associated with anything other than an RCI Wyndham portal account. Unfortunately there is no way to extend a Wyndham portal corporate account by paying for it yourself.

I would bet that wyndham when you sold your contracts deleted your account and so did RCI. T would imagine you have no RCI account period. You need to re-establish your RCI account through your RCI resort. It would be like starting all over again. I have no idea where to start except from when you only had an RCI account. See if you still have that account number.

On my first Wyndham contract, I called to see if the transfer went thru and was told that it had.
He then setup my Wyndham account with the same number as the prior owner and then the rci account.

I suspect that if there were any points in the rci account, I would have received them like I did with the Wyndham account.

Perhaps the new owner of the op's original contract has the rci points in question.

Where is the un-like button? I don't like that information but it may be the case. I will check that out too as if that happened I may be able to get some use from it after all as the buyer I sold to is very legit.
I guess maybe I do like your post....we'll see.

To setup an RCI anything account, you have to own a week at an RCI Weeks resort. If you want RCI Points, you need to a BUY a RCI Points unit .. not just a WEEK at an RCI Points resorts, but a week a prior owner converted (and paid money for said conversion) to RCI Points.
