I have just been contact by a company, WROMAN, and been informed that the ORE exchange company will be converting to a Points system equivalent to RCI beginning May 1, 2006. Does anyone know anything about this? Why wasn't I told about it from ORE? Something smells fishy here. :eek:

To me, is sounds as if some of the resorts that ORE has an interest in, will be changing to the "availability of switching to the RCI points system".

WROMAN is a "third-party" authorized to sell RCI points--and they usually want you to buy "more", at a hefty price.

You can call ORE and ask your questions. Their "customer-service" is great !!!

I own at an ORE resort (Champions' Run) that is in Points. I was able to convert my week to Points for RCI's fee, plus $1. The manager of the Resort did the Points conversion. It was my impression, thought, that my resort lets anyone authorized to do Points Conversion do conversions for their members. So, I probably could have had Wroman do the conversion -- at a substantially higher cost, of course. If other ORE resorts now are in RCI Points, Wroman may try to get some of the conversion business, even if lower-cost options are available. Perhaps that's what the salesman was really trying for.

The phone call you received sounds like a Wroman scam to me. If ORE was really going to an internal points system, why would Wroman even know?

I'd call ORE and ask.

I was told here on the board that Wroman did Points conversions for ORE, but as I said, I was able to get my ORE-managed resort converted for the RCI fee plus $1.

It took me a while, however, to find out that the manager of my resort (Champions' Run) is authorized to do Points Conversions. Various people at ORE suggested other people to do the conversion. I don't think ORE was trying to stear me to an expensive Points broker, I think they just didn't know much about the process.

At which ORE resort do you own? I thought Champions' Run was the only ORE resort in Points.

We own at ORE at St. George and also a MROP week. After talking with ORE headquarters, I've learned that converting to points is an option not a must. Thanks for everyone's comments.
