    I think if you had continued with the transaction you started, the fee would have been waived.

    It just shows how TPUs are all smoke and mirrors
    Maybe. I NEVER give them that week anymore. My own little sob story about TPU lite. I rent the unit for ~ 30% more than MF and have for at least 5 years now. It is a great example for what doesn't work anymore though.

    I only found it on the Platinum Benefits page. Are you seeing it elsewhere?

    When did you use the restore feature Jackie? Maybe it was a perk of platinum and they are now charging ?
    I just did it in December. I had a week expiring in June and they restored me to full power, which was nice since it is a high TPU week. There was no option, they just did it. The trading calculator told me the lower number but upon deposit the whole amount was restored.

    Platinum gets it for the first three months (so, more than six months prior to deposit) but have to pay for it closer in. From the Platinum perks description page:

    We want you to have more time to deposit! Ordinarily, Weeks deposits keep their full Deposit Trading Power when made at least nine months ahead of time. RCI Platinum members can deposit as close as six months prior to the start date of their Week and automatically receive full Deposit Trading Power.
    This is a nice thing if you are a "landlord", as it gives you some other options if for some reason you had trouble moving a week.

    I just tried to deposit a Week 10, 2016, and it asked if I wanted to restore trading power. $69.

    It would not Copy and Paste.

    You have already lost Deposit Trading Power!
    Your deposit's start date is approaching, but it's not too late to receive the maximum Deposit Trading Power available!

    Do you want to receive the maximum Deposit Trading Power available for this deposit? *
    Yes, restore to maximum Deposit Trading Power for USD 69.00
    (View Deposit Restore Guidelines)
    No, do not restore to the maximum Deposit Trading Power.

    2. Allows more exchanges . . . trying to get rid of weeks not being taken.

    I am glad I am done with the RCI numbers racket and rental machine. The grass is so much greener on the SFX / DAE / UKRE side!

    Interesting.
    I think it's a nice perk.
    You don't have to do it but it makes those otherwise useless late deposits valuable again.

    This can work nicely with some of my summer weeks with CMV.
    I wasn't getting good TPU's and II was restricting the late deposits too much with Flexchange.
    I think I will find use for this "perk".

    Seriously, nobody else finds this a good thing?
