Please post your great exchanges here - current exchanges only please.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


I would be interested in knowing what trades other Tuggers accepted. We see alot of sightings but that is somtimes different than what we are willing to trade our deposit for.

I just traded a 5/2009 2 bedroom deposit from Resort on Cocoa Beach for a 2 bedroom Grand Mayan Nuevo Vallarta 2/2011 and a 5/2010 2 bedroom deposit from Resort on Cocoa Beach for a 1 bedroom at Buganvillias Puerta Vallarta 2/2011.

Traded thru RCI

I think that's a great idea. A lot of the best weeks are probably scooped up by ongoing searches. What shows up here is the 'leftovers'. I think we'd get a more full picture of inventory / trade power if we also had a sub-forum for accepted trades.

Since this is about exchanges I'm going to move it to the Exchanging Forum. I doubt there is ever going to be enough demand for a sub-forum but the a moderator 'may' make this a Master Thread for completed exchanges if there are enough posts & interest.

I can "stick" a thread at the top of the board with the title, "Please post your great exchanges, here." Will that work?

BTW - I would suggest that we make it current exchanges only, since information about exchanges very far in the past isn't really useful.

However, my guess is that the cagiest traders aren't going to post their best trades, because they may not want to give away their "tricks of the trade."

I think a sticky would be a good idea.

What a nice idea. The greatest trade in the forty-eighty U.S. states have been to the Marriott's Ocean Pointe, West Palm,FL and the Marriott's Grande Ocean, Hilton Head Island,SC. We had ocean front villas on both exchanges.

We deposited a Gold week at Marriott Oceana Palms and a Gold week at Marriott Desert Springs (both 2 bedroom, both in May of 2010). Starting January 2nd, we'll be spending a week at Marriott Kauai Beach Club, followed by a week at Marriott Maui Ocean Club (both 1 bedroom, but it's just the two of us this time).

Close to the most shallow Great Lake
Good Idea

But I think we need to designate which exchange company was used and include that in the header, e.g. RCI, II, DAE, SFX...

Since RCI, and occasionally DAE, are the 2 I use, I prefer not to wade thru posts that don't apply. Seeing all those Marriot trades done thru II turns me a tad green with envy...

traded through II

I traded to 2BR Marriott Barony Beach Club, HHI, SC during spring break of 2010 with my 10,000 worldmark points.
Also traded to 2BR Marriott Fairway Villas, NJ for Aug 7-14, 2010 with my 10,000 worldmark points.
Marriott Fairway Villa was a benefit of "sightings", thank you! :)

Oakmont
DAE Miami South Beach and $99 bonus week

I just confirmed a south Florida on the beach trade request for a January 2010 1 bedroom at Westgate South Beach. I traded my 2 bedroom September 2010 week at Oakmont in Pigeon Forge TN. I also got a $99 bonus week because of the current DAE promotion for 2010 weeks.

I was thrilled to deposit an expired 2008 Studio week at Los Abrigados. ILX actually deposited a studio at Varsity Clubs of America-Tucson Chapter
VTY for us to trade with since we had to do a last minute cancel.

We traded for a 3 bedroom at the Marriot Marbella in Spain for our college student. Yeah baby!

You mean that they gave you a 3 bdr. Marbella for your Varsity studio ? Unbelievable ! We stayed there three years ago. There must be a secret deal somewhere ! What dates did you get at Marbella ?

Yup - 3 bedroom for the studio - incredible huh!
It's at the tail end of his semester abroad in Amsterdam. Not beach weather but should be good for sightseeing and relaxing after new years in Barcelona.

We exchange primarily thru II using Diamond points. We just got back from a trade thru "The Club". Spent a wonderful week in a 2BR Loft unit overlooking the Pacific at Otter Crest, Oregon.

Next up (II trades): Highlands Inn, Carmel, CA and Marriott's Newport Coast Villas in Newport, CA.

Amazing that you got the Easter week!

RCI trades: We are now at Wyndham Bonnet Creek, 1 BD from a 28K deposit and next week at HGVC Sea World, 2 BD for a 28K deposit. Of course, this is October!
