We made a last minute swerve from BLT resale to OKW direct. My budget-minded husband liked the more-for-less point chart math. I’m highly susceptible to sliding scale marketing incentives (does it help that I know I’m being played?). For EOY we really don’t need much- my family is more sensible than me and says a 2 bdrm is enough space for 6 (as I silently scream “but look how cheap the grand villas are! we’d never get that at BLT!”). So how much do I round up on a contract to allow for point variations?
My “standard” 8 night stay in a 2-bdrm costs 311 points beginning in 2022. Is 320 EOY (a 160 pt contract) sufficient for point shuffling? What do you do with the random bits of points left over? Or do you go under and buy the additional so there’s no wasted points? (In this case a 150 contract and buy 11 points to cover the difference).
I know purchasing DVC (to do it, where and how much) is all highly personal but crowd sourcing wisdom and points of view has been really useful!
