[QUOTE=princesslindsey;1015305]Getting a DVC room is dependent on DVC members banking their week. So, the sooner you request a room, the higher on the list you will be. For example, the time I just requested for October 2012 is so far in advance I have to be near, if not on, the top of the list. As soon as a DVC member gives up their week for that time period, RCI will contact me and tell me I can have it. [/QUOTE]
Thanks, and it sounds like you have an excellent plan and get great deals!
And though it is an awkward transition, it brings up a question I would like to ask the other DVC members here –
Am I nuts to think that if someone banks their DVC points for a use year, shouldn’t they open up that slot for other DVC members first? Shouldn’t we as DVC members have first shot at that resort?
I think the swaps with RCI and II should take place not when a DVC member [U]banks[/U] their points… but rather when they [U]book[/U] an RCI or II property – at that time, they can offer up their week.
Just my opinion.
