RCI® Elite Rewards® Credit Card
RCI® Elite Rewards® MasterCard® credit card—already the credit card of choice for many timeshare owners—has undergone some exciting changes. An agreement with Barclays means prospective purchasers of timeshare in Mexico and the Caribbean will be eligible to apply for the card and cardholders in North America will continue to enjoy features that can make the card—and its Rewards—even more valuable for them while on vacation and all year long.
“We’ve worked closely with Barclays to develop this program to be an effective way to help support the sales efforts at RCI affiliated resorts,” says Jeff Parker, senior vice president of product management and resort operations for RCI. “The Elite Rewards program extends the impact of the card beyond the sales table to support the RCI subscribing member lifestyle. We expect cardholders to earn and redeem Rewards for as long as they are RCI members.”
The RCI Elite Rewards credit card point-of-sale program was re-established in the Mexico and Caribbean markets to support sales efforts at RCI affiliated resorts in these regions.
Upon approval for the card, Barclays is offering a 0% introductory interest rate for the first six billing cycles on the timeshare down payment. For developers at affiliated resorts, this helps counter the objection heard most commonly at the sales table: Potential owners don’t have the down payment. The popular Rewards program will remain basically unchanged. Using the card for qualified everyday purchases helps cardholders accumulate Rewards, which they can choose to use to offset some of their RCI subscribing membership and RCI transaction fees.
The RCI Elite Rewards credit card can help make vacation ownership possible for many prospective purchasers. And while the RCI Elite Rewards credit card offers cardholders great benefits, it also enhances the value of their RCI membership.
