DVC Member offer received in today's snail mail
 
Save $500 or more when you Add On at least 100 vacation points at AKV or Aulani. Plus, choose either 4 5-Day WDW Park Hoppers or 2 Disneyland Premium AP. Offer requires current members to Add On 100 or more at those 2 resorts.
Does not state what the current per point price is.
Has anyone more details on this?
Are the 5-Day Park Hoppers passes with no start date requirements or caveats? (Can I wait until 2020 to use them?)
What do you all think of this offer?

I think that the offer is designed to get you to buy. You need to compare the deal to resale and see which is the better price.

Are you already an owner? Have you looked into resale?

I think the offer isn't very good. You can get PH for 40% off if you sign up for the F&W 5K this year (and in previous years).

Me too! With AKV being, what, $145 per point through Disney...with this offer that's $5/point off of 100 points...so $140/point plus the park tickets...BOOOOO! I just bought an AKV 100 point contract via resale at $66/point.

Why does this card mention a tour? Is this another opportunity to get the instant fast pass cards?

bakerworld 03-29-2013 07:57 PM

don't understand the ticket deal - discount amount ??

When I did the W&D 1/2 last year, they had a ticket offer from the event. I don't recall the prices, but they were very good, and you could pick from various lengths of days. I think I got the offer in an email after I registered for the race. It says it's for runners and their friends, so that's anyone who finds out about the offer, I guess.

There was some limitation on the range of dates the tickets were good for.

I looked at the site for this year's race but didn't see the offer. Maybe over on the WISH Events thread people might be discussing it and how to get the ticket offer.

XGrumpy1 03-30-2013 09:33 PM

I got the offer. I will not be taking advantage of it.

I got a similar offer for non-owners and I promptly tossed it as well. I have been toying with DVC purchase for years (still not ready) and retail is much more attractive IMO.

JAG107 04-03-2013 10:51 PM

Yeah this kind of offer is insulting given the recent price hike. They would maybe have sold this offer better by just saying "Get 10% off" instead of some free park tickets and a small cash incentive. Either way, my next purchase will be most definitely a resale contract.

Its on dvcnews as well for new and current owners:

http://www.dvcnews.com/index.php/dvc...g-a-promotions

Still doesn't make $145/pt all that attractive vs. resale, but I bet they get some takers.

Looking at the DVC sales charts they are selling way more points and contracts at AKV than other resorts so why the promo?:confused3

Just curious what might be driving it.
