You’ve heard all about trading power before… but now you’ll be able to see it! Every holiday week deposited with RCI is assigned a trading power at the time of deposit, known as Deposit Trading Power. The ability to see the trading power of your Deposit will enable you to make holiday choices that best fit your needs!
Deposit Trading Power is a value assigned to your holiday week upon its deposit with RCI. Your Deposit Trading Power is determined by the following components:
1. The Supply, Demand, Utilization and Classification for your specific Deposit, resort and region
Supply - How many similar Deposits do we already have?
Demand - How many members want your Deposit?
Utilization - How many deposits like yours have been confirmed by other members in the past?
Classification: Did you deposit a resort, a boat, or an RV, etc.?
2. The season in which you own
3. The size and type of your unit
4. The comment card scores for your resort
5. How far in advance of the Deposit's start date you deposit
Deposit Trading Power is used to determine the exchange* holiday options that are available to you. When searching for an exchange holiday you will be able to choose to see all available exchanges in the system or only those that have an Exchange Trading Power that is equal to or less than your Deposit Trading Power. If you would like to make an exchange using only the Deposit you searched against you will be able to book exchange holidays with equal or less trading power.
Upon depositing your week with RCI, your trading power will appear next to your deposited week in the “Manage Your Deposits” screen.
After depositing, your Deposit Trading Power value will not decrease. You will be able to use your Deposit Trading Power to decide how best to use your holiday week.
If you have the same week every year, and do not need to get it assigned from your home resort, the current trading power value of your eligible week will be displayed to the right of the week in the “Manage Your Deposits” screen. The value listed is the current trading power you will receive if you deposit today. Remember, timing of deposit can affect trading power so this value may decrease if you choose to deposit at a later time.
Tip: In order to deposit a week with RCI, your maintenance fees must be current. Make sure you pay your maintenance fees to your home resort as soon as possible.
If you need to get your week assignment from your home resort or if your week is not yet eligible for deposit you can still estimate your trading power. RCI has developed a Deposit Calculator to help you determine the approximate trading power of your Deposit, and the impact of the timing on your Deposit.
The Deposit Calculator:
Allows you to enter the start date and unit configuration of your Deposit to determine the approximate trading power of your week before your deposit.
Calculates your Deposit Trading Power in real time based on the information that you input.
The only component of determining your Deposit Trading Power that you can control is timing of deposit or, when you decide to deposit your week with RCI.
Depositing 2 years to 9 months in advance of the start date of your week will give you 100% of your available Deposit Trading Power to use when exchanging.
Your Deposit Trading Power will not go down once you have deposited.
Deposit Trading Power is used to determine what exchange holidays are available to you.
