    How does this happen? Is there a particular month that I should look for HHIC or did you just deposit and then wait for them to contact you? Does is just depend on what you are depositing? I don't know how to use II, Im a new member there. Do I have to put an ongoing search and if so, is there a cost for that and can I do that online or do i have to call?

    You really need to do an ongoing search online. You pay when you submit the search but they reimburse you if it doesn't come through. The more resorts and weeks you enter as acceptable, the more likely you will have success.

    Exchanged a 1 BR 2400 point Las Vegas Flamingo HGVC with SFX for a 3 BR Hacienda del Mar in Cabo.
    Since I'm diamond SFX, it was $149 for the exchange fee and $199 for the upgrade from 1 to 3 BR (if it had been a 2 BR unit, I would've gotten a free upgrade).
    Approx "cost" with Hilton MF and stuff brings it to about $900.

    I am at the Valdoro Mountain Lodge in Breckenridge, Colorado. This is a HGVC resort exchange thru RCI. I forget how many TPUs. Maybe 25 per week. I have two consecutive weeks here. It is a 1 in 4 year exchange. I booked about 18 months ago for a two bedroom unit.

    This is the best place I have ever exchanged to. The unit is beautiful. The service is great. The staff is so friendly. There is a free shuttle to take you anywhere in town. Parking here is free. There is no daily surcharge.

    I will post a review when I return.

    I use Sheraton desert oasis and get match to a 2 bedroom Westin nanea for 8/2-8/9/19. Would have prefer a sat checkin in 8/3 since we still be at Hilton Hawaii village till 8/3 but no other checkin dates available
