    At Old Town Alexandria this week and was talked into going to the Owners Education on how to better use your points. Was told that I could enroll my 1 bedroom RCI fixed week in Galinburg and 2 bedroom Interval International fixed week in St. Augustine using PIC if I bought 108,000 points for $20K. He said I could use the points from PIC to offset maintenance fees. I turned down his generous offer and he basically said I wasted his time. Sort of rude if you ask me. I did get my $100 gift to eat at Chart house a new resort directory so that was good.

    I’ll be there in 3 weeks and probably make them mad too. Doing the 3 night stay for $199 and get a $200 gift card and $100 hotel voucher. I bought a 168k Bali Hai contract recently just to be able to go there every few years.

    The II week would have been eligible for PIC express for a limited time (5 years) only.

    You know, I mentioned that I thought it was a limited time and he said I can just renew it again. Basically he said I would be VIP Silver using the PIC properties if I paid them $20k

    They are such liars! One sales lady told me I would have to buy house keeping credits because I bought resale. I looked at my account and there are house keeping credits in it.

    The Chart House is pretty nice. Down on the riverfront. My wife and I busted one of OTA's $100 gift cards by $50 but it was great!

    Enjoy the dinner but otherwise, I'd probably tell the guy to kiss my whatever.

    He must be referring to PIC express. Properties not eligible in PIC Plus (which has no expiration), can sometimes be eligible for PIC express which expires in five years. You would have to buy at least 49,000 points per PIC week to renew. So anywhere from $13k to $17k if you went through telesales instead of the resorts.

    I cannot even say that is a half truth. Resale gets the same amount as non-VIP retail members. VIPs are the only ones who have unlimited credits. The rest only have to pay if you run out.

    You might be surprised. A number of us have been to them without our spouses.

    Many people have reported going without spouses. When they ask if your spouse is with you say, "My wife is not with me, but my girlfriend is. Can I bring her? She may not look it, but I swear she is over 18." :)

    LOL Yup! Those guys will do anything to get you in. I was at National Harbor a few years back and they did just that. They said, "Just bring a friend. Free breakfast!"
