Interval International — accommodation certificates
We regularly receive Accommodation Certificates related to our Prime Week at Hilton Head Waterside. In recent months, we've tried to use three Accommodation Certificates, one of which has now expired, one of which is about to expire, and one of which will expire in the fall. In each case the II Vacation Advisor told us (on the phone) that "there's nothing available in the US" for use with our Certificates. We have previously had some success with Bonus Weeks through RCI (for a different property), but using our II Accommodation Certificates has so far fproved impossible. Last year, the II Advisor persuaded us to use their "Getaway" program instead, which resulted in our paying several hundred dollars for the vacation. It seems clear that this is more profitable for them than the Accommodation Certificate program, which now seems like a scam aimed at getting us to pay extra fees for using an alternative reservation method.
