For the first time, I made a spacebank into RCI yesterday (Sunday). I am waiting for the credits to appear in the WM-RCI portal.

Does anyone know how long it will take? I know Exchange Dept doesn't work on weekends, so I didn't expect them there this morning, but I hope they're not so backed up that it takes a long time.

I will report back on my experience.

I have an Exchange on "hold" that I will not "confirm" until I see the spacebanked credits in RCI. I want the expired/old credits to be used for this Exchange, and the date of the Exchange is farther out than any reservation in my WM account.

I just saw the 10000 credits have appeared in RCI. Happened sometime between 4 pm and 7:15 pm PDT on Monday (next day after spacebank).

Further info:
I waited to confirm the RCI Exchange until this morning.
I see now that the 10,000 have disappeared from the section:
Credits banked in RCI account* 0

Do you have to call to spacebank? How do you specify which credits to use up or they take the oldest automatically.

Yes, you have to call WorldMark.
I make sure the oldest credits are "loose" in the WM account, by setting up a dummy reservation that is earliest reservation in the account. Wait overnight for the "shuffle". Cancel, right before calling VPC, to make sure that the oldest credits did shuffle into that reservation overnight.
Since the oldest credits are now loose in the account, VPC enters the quantity to be spacebanked, and those will be the ones taken.
Before hanging up:
Get VPCs name
Ask for the confirmation number of the transaction

Credits will be deducted from WM account immediately.
Credits will appear in RCI within 24 - 48 hours.

Good to know. If some of my trip plans fall through, then I will have some expiring credits that I may need to send to RCI.
