I deposited a HHI summer week. It seems like the TPUs have recently gone up about 8 TPus. Will RCI adjust my TPU upwards if I call? Has anyone had their TPU adjust upwards? Also, has anyone been able to get on the deposit calculator? Elaine

I have been able to use the Deposit Calculator but only when logging in using Safari. When in Internet Explorer I can't get the calculator to work.

I am currently sitting on a 2013 HHI summer week and trying to decide whether to deposit. The TPU's necessary to trade into the available summer 2012 and 13 weeks have gone up a good bit the last couple of weeks. However, as of right now the amount being offered for my 2013 week as a deposit has not.

I did have a summer 2012 Myrtle Beach week that I deposited last summer where the TPU's increased after deposit. These were automatically awarded to my deposit/account which is inline with RCI policy. I would be suprised if a phone call would make any difference at this point but you never know.

how long after your deposit was the increase? More than a few days? I deposited in September for a June 2012 week---right before the cutoff for max trading power.

Right, the only thing that matters is the deposit calculator. My experience watching an area in which I own is that the deposit calculator moves less frequently, and with smaller total changes, than the TPU required to exchange back in.

However, when the deposit calculator gives a new (higher) value, weeks I had already on deposit are bumped up without needing to call. I even had a leftover that had been combined with something else, and the combination got bumped up as well. No call required.

I deposited the MB week in July and the additional automatic increase occurred during the second week of September.

They'll never retroactively lower the TPU on a deposit that you've already made, but they have been known to adjust the TPU value up. I wouldn't count on it, but it does happen.
