RCI Points fees and benefits help please?

Hi Everyone:

I am still trying to get everything straight with fees and benefits with RCI points. My future points account is still in the transfer process from the seller and it will take a couple of weeks or so. I also want to explain these to my wife and parents, who are also owners of this timeshare.

1) What is the exchange fee for using my RCI Points? I plan on doing mostly "Instant Exchanges" within the 30-day window as I have a triennial unit (16,333 points a year).

2) Can Points also be used for booking only a night or two at a resort? If so, do they discount the exhange fee for less than a week?

3) The "Instant Exchange" weeks are at Weeks properties only right?

4) What is the cost for paying out of pocket for the discounted nights at the RCI Points resorts? I remember something about them being $49 for one night, $59 two nights, etc? Are these available only at the Points resorts?

5) How much are "Last Call" weeks at the resorts when I pay for this out of pocket? ($200 or so for a week?)

6) Are the "Last Call" weeks booked at Weeks resorts, Points resorts or both?

I apologize for the amount of questions. I did try to research this by doing searches on this site, but it was a little hard to find these answers.

If anyone can answer, one or more of the questions, it would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you.
