I read the 'working the system' thread with considerable interest.
I would be greatly interested in hearing how the rest of you work the The Former Company system (by this i tend to mean Club The Former Company in Europe, but would also be interested to read the views of those who are part of a different system).
We are a family of 3 (myself, my husband and my school age son). We need to use our 8000 points to our very best advantage to get the best hols from our The Former Company points. As we are restricted to school hols, and generally would wish to use 2 bed appts, I need to be very organised in booking our The Former Company hols so that we can maximise our points and get the most hols we can out of them (we also own a time-share week which is affiliated to II and I exchange this carefully too).
So, other The Former Company members, whilst not wishing to denigrate the concerns of those who worry about this system, I'd love to hear from those of you who have learned how to 'work it' so that you enjoy maximum hols for your spend, and can help us all to achieve the maximum potential from what we have all bought!
