    Do you know that tug has a permanent swap section in the marketplace?

    Whereas tug marketplace offers a permanent swap section it is difficult to find. If you never looked at it please go look and tell me if it was easy to find, maybe I am doing something wrong. Free one time exchange ads are easy to find.

    I know permanent timeshare trades are a longer shot but I believe they can happen.

    I do think tuggers could possibly succeed at times with permanent trades as sometimes one wants something else but doesn’t want to commit until they find a home for what they own.

    Couldn’t find it! I consider myself to be fairly savvy. How would I find through here? Assuming those exchanges are 1x exchanges. They appear to be.

    I've browsed that section multiple times using the "all exchanges" option - don't recall ever seeing an ad for a permanent exchange, although maybe none have been posted.

    I honestly havent approved a "permanent exchange" ad in recent memory.

    there would be an indicator on the regular exchange ad for those that the poster indicated they were interested in exchanging permanently vs just a single use.

    It is there and there are a few listings but you have to find the menu for timeshare marketplace and then select permanent swap. I have not found a way to get to this menu easily. I have to select a prominent marketplace section such as for sale, or the regular exchange and then I can access the menu to permanent swap.

    I do feel if it was easier to list and see permanent exchanges, Tug members would look and maybe a few would be successful. Anyway could we experiment to see if there is a demand even if only with a tug members post? We could keep a running post in exchanges titles “Permanent Swap”. One could say what they have and what they are looking for.

    id imagine we could add a SORT drop down option to the direct exchange list that would allow for sorting by permanent exchange or not as an easy solution. ill send an email to ask.

    Not sure that will stand out. One has to easily see and know it’s available to use something. If you can do I could for awhile update a post to remind tuggers it’s available and to check it out.

    So I put a few ads in for permanent exchanges. They show under exchanges and if you can find the tab for permanent exchanges they are there too.

    You actually go through the process for exchange and there is a box to check off if you are interested in a permanent trade.

    Long shot but they are good weeks that have some resale value but figured maybe someone has something I want that could use mine. I do like them and use them occasionally and they have great trade value but figured I would try to get my favorite place. Nothing ventured nothing gained so I am trying, costs nothing as a Tug member because of the free ads we get as part of our membership each year.
