Question about exchanges in II


Jan 15, 2009
Reaction score
Is it better to deposit first or request first for an exchange? We have an exchange in (deposited) a year ago and put in for an exchange for a specific week in January 2009 for February 2010 right now. In addition, we recently paid our maintenance fee for 2009 and know we aren't going to our home resort this year - should we deposit those weeks right away even if we don't put in for an exchange right away? Are we further ahead "in line" for an exchange if we deposit the weeks and not put in for a specific exchange? Am I making sense? We are looking for very popular weeks since I work in a school and am limited as to when I can take a vacation.
