I've been meaning to deposit my 2009 Gaslamp week (July) and haven't done it. Finally decided to try going back to RCI, but I know I would have better trade power a year or more out. We haven't used RCI for a few years now. Will I lose a lot of trade power?
Thanks,
Liz

Hi Liz, I own at a So California resort a couple of blocks from the beach and I just recently deposited a July 2009 week with RCI. This week seems to have the same trade power as it always has even when compared to other weeks that I've deposited a little bit earlier. I've also deposited one of these summer weeks as late as December and didn't really notice any difference in the trade power.

IMHO, I think the summer weeks on the southern California coast are valued quite high by RCI as long it is weeks 25-33.

Also, my resort is a VRI managed resort like Gaslamp and I've gotten a couple of super trades in the 30 day priority window to other VRI managed resorts within RCI.

Good luck with your trade!

Strong traders do fine with RCI when deposited "late". I've deposited as late as 6 months out & I still see great trades. Go for it.

I have a July 09 summer beach week that I am not depositing until Dec 08

I asked the same question a while back. I am waiting until Dec. to see if direct trade, etc. comes thru 1st. Elaine
