RCI Weeks Program

Green & Noblin, P.C., along with co-counsel, filed a class action in New Jersey in 2006 on behalf of RCI Weeks Program members. Through its Weeks Program, RCI offers its members the option of depositing their vacation week in a spacebank to exchange it for a comparable week from the spacebank. Plaintiffs allege that RCI actually rents out the most desirable and highly demanded vacation weeks from the spacebank, thus depleting the most desirable options available to Weeks Program members who seek exchanges.

If you meet the definition of a class member, your rights may be affected.
