Has anyone had luck in getting an exchange on the Big Island in Jan or Feb, on RCI?

I put up a week at my home resort Hotel Xcaret Mexico, for a week at a resort on the Big Island (Ongoing Search). Am I out of my mind or do I have a chance?

I would add to the Sightings Board. I believe HGVC did their bulk deposit earlier this year around April.

Hi mayamart, admittedly I am not super knowledgeable about such things. That said, I just searched for your posting because we will be in the Playa del Carmen area around the same time. I have access to Wyndhams Kona side and could look into a possible exchange... but where is your listing posted?
Thx

Hello! Where is the Sightings Board? I did a search and couldn't find it.

I'm sorry, but you have to have a paid TUG membership ($15) to access the Sightings Forum.

I belive you may have a few issues:
-Your Mexico deposit may not have enough trading power for a Hawaii exchange.
-We are getting close to the cut-off deadline for Jan./Feb. exchanges.
-Most exchange happen months in advance, so it's hard to get something at the last minute.
-To broaden your chances, I'd edit the ongoing search to include all of the Hawaiian islands.

What TPU do you get for your Mexican Timeshare. For Royal Solaris in Cabo I only get 9 TPU per week. I usually deposit 3 to 4 weeks and then pay RCI to combine them into 1 TPU of 27 to 36.
