Not resolved

I hate RCI. It is indeed a scam and every good thing that you are told at the initial presentation has an even higher price to pay.

In trying to use my points toward a flight, the website failed me. When I tried to use it the next day, flight prices had skyrocketed. I still booked my flight, which only used about half my available points. When I tried to book another flight, the website said I had 0 points, which was untrue. I am a RCI Platinum member and I own at a resort with 122,000 yearly points and have 61,000 points for use, and I only used 31,000. I called, waited about 20 minutes, and spoke to a rep who said he would have to transfer me to get the issue resolved. Waited another 10 minutes, and the line hung up on there end. Called back, waited another 20 minutes, and the representative said that the person assigned to my case was now GONE, and I will have to wait until tomorrow (when prices may have changed AGAIN) to get my issue of missing points resolved.

Nowhere on the website does it say anything about them putting a hold on the remaining points. The website also says that I am to conduct as many transactions as I would like.

I am absolutely outdone that I have to go through this much trouble for a program that I'm paying so much for. Stay as far away from RCI as possible.

Wow surprising. My points work fine, usually when I use them toward something like a cruise or air it gives an additional discount. Prices for air can change all the time, people say bookign air mid week is best so it doesnt sound like the price change thing had anything to do with RCI. When calling, you always have to make sure you dial the right department or else you will be transferred about. For example calling RCI main line doesn't help if you have a question about points, the points department has their own phone number.

Maybe you just arent used to booking travel, I never had any problems.

I am so glad I cancelled my timeshare within the 7 day period. After reading so many negative reviews all over the internet, there is clearly an issue(s).

I completely agree. I wish I had never gone on that tour in Vegas.
