It has been quite some time since I belonged to RCI and I plan never to have anything to do with RCI again in this lifetime (...or in the next lifetime either, if one should become available).


I am thinking that timeshares salespeople and RCI will be available in the next lifetime if one ends up in hell- or as my mother used to call it "where the interesting people go"

to get back to DAE, I tried them about 5 years ago and though they were friendly and eager, it was hard to get an exchange I wanted in the US. Don't know if the same problem exists today.
Can someone say more about Platinum Interchange?
