What do you think of that confirmation. Looks strange.
"Points protection". Is that an RCI thing? The top paragraph starting with "John" clearly looks to be added afterward in a different font and the wording seems strange.

Could be RCI. That is something on every confirmation. I should check my recent confirms for Hilton Kings'Land.

Looking in the RCI Resort Directory, it is listed as "Sheraton Broadway Plantation", though the confirmation seems to indicate "Sheraton Broadway Plantation Resort". The capitalization of the R in Resort would make me think it is pulling from the resort directory, which doesn't seem to include the word "resort".

The username on TUG is christep551

No TUG posts, name doesn't match the name on the confirmation sent to me.

It could be an RCI confirmation.

I am still looking for a one bedroom premium (even a small one bedroom) for 8/20-8/27, if anyone has anything for me.

There is still weeks inventory showing for a one bedroom premium for those dates, and I have no one bedrooms to book it.

Will Vistana let me use next year's week for this year????? I have a premium one bedroom for next year.

After trying so hard to get a week to match what I needed for a guest we have that needed this particular unit type and date, I rented this one for $1,399 from Redweek. I would have paid a TUG member $1,200 for a week. Just saying. What I am willing to pay for a rental is more than the $800 per week, and I don't like the rule that says I cannot state that in my request. I should be able to say, "I will pay more than $800" and not have my post taken down because I said that. Let me pay what I want.

I think a TUG member would have helped me for the higher price.

In all reality, I am not sure why there is a limit in the LMR Wanted forum. I can understand it in the rentals offered. If they are more than $800, then they can go to the TUG Marketplace, but for want ads, if it is last minute you should probably expect to pay more. Especially given some of the resorts I see some people asking for here. Like "I want beachfront in Florida in the summer". No one should realistically expect to only pay $800 for that, last minute or not.

When I asked for something several months ago, I stated in my post that I would pay more, and my post was taken down because "there is a posted limit." That's wrong, and I am glad you agree. I would never expect to pay less than someone's cost on what I need and am asking for.
