I own week 29 in Royal Sands in Cancun. I am confused with the different offers you have been sending me. I received a special offer for 2004, No. MX4C2, that if I deposit my week, they will give me an Interval Vacation certificate. It says it is good for one year and the certificate has a grid showing anticipated availability of accommodations for a travel period. If the certificate is redeemed within 59 days or less of the travel date, I may select a destination available through the Flexchange.
I also received the same offer, Code MX5TC2, for 2005.
Now I received an offer that if I sign for five years automatic renewal of membership in Interval, they will give me a bonus Resort Accommodation Certificate.
My question is: what is the difference between a Resort Accommodation Certificate, and Interval Vacation certificate, and a Flexchange Bonus Certificate? With the first two, am I only limited to selected resorts that you give, or would it be like a regular deposit week where I can choose any resort in the Interval book? What is the advantage to commit to five years automatic renewal? What happens if I do not want to deposit my week during this five-year period?

For all practical purposes, the certificates are the same. During the flexchange period, you are eligible for all member deposited weeks that are of equal, slightly less or better quality.

The advantage to the last offer you received is that you are guaranteed to receive an AC for the entire five year period. Other members who own the same week as you may not have the same advantage. You have no obligation to deposit your week during the five year period. Furthermore, you can cancel your auto renewal at any time. If you do cancel the auto renewal, you would not be eligible for the automatic AC program after that date.
