It also had an identical phone number to call for additional information. These are obviously not units posted for rental by actual property owners
They aren't. It is all the same inventory that Vidanta dumps into RCI, II, SFX, Koala and many more in order to generate leads to suck into a timeshare presentation. Vidanta has pretty much killed the owner rental market with their only pay maintenance fees on use setup. Meaning, if you don't go you don't pay so you don't need to figure out a way to recoup sunk money.

I have been receiving emails from them for awhile now, but I never respond. A couple of days ago I received something in the mail with a “time-sensitive gift” that “will expire soon.” Inside there is a “Redweek Travel rewards card” with a $500 credit on it…there is a number to call to activate it.
I won’t be calling.
I have only used Redweek to rent a few times.
