Somewhere I read something in passing about extending the expiration date on an II deposit for a fee. I own Wyndham points and have 2 deposits left for this year and a really full calendar with 4 trips booked and 4 more Xyzs available.

Does anyone know if deposits can be extended and how much the fee is?
I have a 2br and a studio left.

Once you extend a deposit, you can no longer set up an ongoing search with it, and you have to use it within 59 days of check-in.

I think the fee might be:

$59 - 3 months
$99 - 6 months
$169 - 12 months

It used to be, you had to extend prior to the week expiring. Now, expired weeks show with "Extend Now". So I'm not use if, you use an expired week to do an online search (hudshut is correct, you can't setup an ongoing search). Then, if you find an exchange, if you can extend right then, paying the appropriate fee for however long the week has been expired for.

I believe the prices have gone up from the ones listed above.

I don't know any way to use the week to search for time periods beyond the current expiration date. You'll get the message saying that X is the last date you can search for.

So maybe it still shows you all expired, non-extended weeks, but you can't search with them until you've previously paid to extend them?

I already have a search going with the week I may want to extend. Does that make a difference?

Yes as pointed out, extending a week will change it to a flexchange-type week, where you can't do ongoing searches, and online ones less than 60 days out.

So say you have a week expiring Feb 1. You can only do an ongoing search until Feb 1. Once that date comes (and you haven't matched), you can extend, and start to search manually, for as long as you extension is good for. Even if it's for a year, you can still only search 2 months out at a time.

extend more than once?

Does anyone know if you can extend an expired week more than once? Or, is it one extension (3/6/12 months) and then you're done?

Found these terms when you go to extend a week:

Each resort week deposit may be extended twice, no more than three months after its expiration date. Extended deposits are limited to exchange within the Flexchange system. Regular deposits will convert to late deposits.

If I have a week that expired May 2012, looks like I'd have until August 2012 to extend it. But if I extend it for 6 months, do I then have up to 3 months after the new expiration date (Nov 2012) to decide if I want to re-extend it?

I heard back from II. Full terms:

- extension must be done within 3 months of expiration
- extension can be $69/3months $99/6 $189/12
- week only good for online Flexchange search, no ongoing search
- within 3 months expiration of the first extension, a 2nd extension can be done for another 3/6/12 months.

Overall not bad. One feature I wish they had was if you could do any online search with any expired (non-extended) week. If you found a suitable exchange, then it would let you immediately pay the extension fee at the same time you paid the exchange fee.

But I guess you can't have everything.

That is one reason I like SFX. For each deposit in prime time, I can get an expired week unexpired and deposit are extended by 18 months. I unexpired several weeks this year but my II and DAE expired weeks are gone for good since it was more than 3 months for II and DAE would need multiple extensions and not cost effective.
