how you can use your week as RCI Points.
The RCI Points For Deposit program, meaning "get points in return for
depositing weeks", has been available through RCI for several years now. Not everyone can participate. Here are the rules:
- 1. The resort you deposit must be an RCI resort.
- 2. You must be a North American resident owning a North American Points Membership and depositing weeks from resorts in the Americas or Africa from resorts that are NOT converting to points. The points values are listed in your points directory as well as online on the RCI website, based on what you own. The points you receive from depositing will be 100% of the directory amount providing you deposit the week at least 90 days prior to the start date of the deposited week.
- 3. The resort you are depositing must not already be or become an RCI Points resort nor any type of points resort. Note: Before you buy RCI Points for purposes of using the RCI Points For Deposit Program, it is your responsibility to check if you resort has any plans of converting to RCI Points because if it does convert you would no longer be able to use the RCI Points For Deposit program.
- 4. You must have exactly the same names on your week AND points memberships.
Summary: Points for Deposit Points members who also own at Weeks resorts can choose to receive points for their Weeks deposits via the Points for Deposit program, (for non-commercial use only) even if that resort is not a points resort. The Weeks ownership is not actually being "converted"; however, those deposits can be used to receive points. The member decides which weeks to convert and which to leave in Weeks, one deposit at a time.
Note: You will only pay one RCI Membership fee even though you have both a
weeks membership and a points membership.
A simple phone call to RCI Points department is all it takes to deposit your week and get points in return.
The points you receive are good for travel for two years from the date of
deposit, so any points you don't use the first year automatically carry over to the second year. You can also borrow points from future years, or rent points from RCI for a particular year for only 2 cents per point.
