    Default Trading Places Clarification needed

    I had read on an earlier thread that as long as you have signed up for Romanace Rewards you have Trading Places priveleges. I am confused.

    If you look on Romance Rewards, it appears that you have to at least have achieved The Young Love status to receive a Trading Places Pass which means you have to at least be on your second Couples visit.

    I need clarification because the group we will be with will have one newbie couple.

    From the FAQ:

    Can I visit other Couples Resorts? (Trading Places program)

    Romance Rewards members will now be offered the privilege of complimentary day passes to a nearby Couples Resort. We're calling the program "Trading Places".

    In Negril, Trading Places is available between Couples SweptAway and Couples Negril.

    In Ocho Rios, Trading Places is extended between Couples Sans Souci and the NEW Couples Tower Isle.

    Here are the rules and conditions for the new Romance Rewards Trading Places:

    1. Trading Places is restricted to Romance Rewards members only. Since it may take several days for new Romance Rewards member account to be activated, only Romance Rewards members who have an active account upon arrival at your resort are eligible.

    2. Trading Places is limited to a maximum of 10 couples per day on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only.

    3. Romance Rewards members must sign up for Trading Places with Guest Relations 24 hours in advance. The sign up is only available while you are on property. Romance Rewards members may only sign up for Trading Places once per stay.

    4. Complimentary transfers from your resort to the nearby resort will depart at 9:45 am and will depart from the nearby resort back to your resort at 4:00 pm.

    5. Should you decide to leave the nearby resort prior to 4:00 pm, transfer costs will be at your expense. If you miss the 4:00 pm transfer, the nearby resort reserves the right to charge the current day pass rate.

    6. Activities at the nearby resort which require reservations such as excursions and scuba are not part of the day pass privilege. Spa facilities may be utilized subject to availability; however no coupons or credits from your resort may be used at the nearby resort.

    As long as you have signed up for Romance Rewards, then you are eligible for the Trading Places.

    The reason it shows this as a repeater perk on the Romance Reward page (for every level) is because it is. But it's also the only perk for those who have just signed up but have yet to stay at a Couples.

    Here's the link and information about Trading Places from the website. http://couples.com/10FAQ.htm#Can_I_v...ouples_Resorts

    There is no CSI, unless we're talking forensics

    CTI - Couples Tower Isle (Ocho Rios)
    CSS - Couples Sans Souci (Ocho Rios)
    CN - Couple Negril (Negril)
    CSA - Couples Swept Away (Negril)

    Ocho Rios and Negril are about 3 to 4 hours apart, depending on the drive.

    None of the resorts in the same city are connected by the same beach so you could not walk from one to the other that way. However, on the street, they are both just a few miles apart so it would be about a five minute cab ride.
