I'm not sure if this was posted and if it was, please feel free to delete or merge my post. While trolling around RCI, I noticed on the page that lists available deposits a banner for the above noted feature.

Long and short, you can deposit your week up to two weeks before check in and pay a fee to have the trading power restored to if you had deposited it at nine months. Here are the Guidelines for it.


While I was holding with Interval to cancel an exchange, I did a live chat with RCI and found out that the cost is 69 U.S. and 95 CAD.

Again, if this is a repeat, my apologies.

If that is the case, why would anyone with a decent week deposit early? Esp. if you are considering renting it out. Seems like a small price to pay for the flexibility. Maybe I should try renting out my week 52 in Orlando afterall if all it takes is $69 to restore full value.
