We swear that when we bought our platinum week 6 years ago we were told there were only 2 PP weeks. Now they say/show that there are 4 PP weeks. I need to pull out our contract from the safe deposit box to confirm but is anyone else familiar with this? Did I remember this wrong?:shrug:

Weeks 51, 52, 7 and I believe 13 are all PP weeks. Maybe you got confused because there are two weeks during the Jan.-April Plat. season that are PP weeks.

Currently it is 7, 14 (which really ranges from 12-16), 51, and 52. I am good with 7 and 52. 14 and 51 seem new to me.

I will go to the bank and find our paperwork.

I remember the 4 Plat Plus weeks from when we purchased back in 2005. They were pushing Plat Plus weeks and bought Pres Week. I wonder if your rep may have conveniently forgot to mention it if it was sold out.

I've heard it represented as there are 2 Plat. Plus weeks during the Plat. season of weeks 1-17 that you can't reserve. I think that's where the confusion lies. Weeks 51 and 52 are not considered part of the Jan. through April Plat. season.
