Aaargh!!! I usually trade with II, but I have 42,000 points in my RCI account that are due to expire at the end of the year, so I'm exploring some options. I haven't used this account in over a year, and I'm going crazy trying to book a week. I've gone over the tutorials, and everything works fine until I choose the week, then I get the message I have "INSUFFICIENT POINTS". This happens when I *know* there are enough points to book the week - there's only one available week and it's worth 10,500 points! I called RCI, but gave up on the advisor, when every single question I asked made him put me on hold for several minutes, so he could ask his supervisor. I'm beginning to remember why I don't use RCI very often...

Has anybody else had the same problem with an erroneous "insufficient point" message preventing them from making a reservation? Is there any away to fix it, or am I missing something obvious?
