Has anyone heard from their guide lately??
 
We went on the WL Mar 11th for 50 pts at the BCV with an Oct or Sept use year. I was wondering if anyone heard from their guide telling them how they were doing on the list? last time our guide called us had to be about 4-5weeks ago so I was wondering if I should call and see what's going on.

Mine only called when my okw waitlist actually came through a bit over 2 months after going on the list.

The Guides are busy selling VGF, larger contracts, more points, higher price, and more buyers. I would call your Guide for an update.

I guess that would be the best idea

We actually got a call from ours when we were staying at BWV earlier this month. He simply called to see how things were going. No sales pitch or anything. I'm sure the hope was that I would ask about GFV.

I'm just wondering how much longer it will be.

Spoke with my guide today. We are looking for 125 points at SSR with a September UY. He seems to think that maybe we can have something in the next couple of weeks with 2012 points thrown in :cool1:.

I was thinking I could get 2012 pts.but If i get a Sept use year and get them in Sept I won't get the pts and I wonder if that's what they want

That's what happened with at least, but I think maybe even two, other posters here earlier this year.

They were both wait listed for VGC points with a March UY. They both waited around a full year from when they went on the list.

Then right at the beginning of March, they both got their points. The guess at the time was DVC had bought back or otherwise acquired March UY points which didn't have any 2012 points, so they couldn't sell them to the wait listers until those points were out of the equation.

Just guesswork, and VGC is a much different animal, but you never know...

I got part of my waitlist @ VGC in may of this year. It was for june UY and I got the 2012 points for essentially no maintenance fee and got 2013 points pro r ated. That was a nice litle surprise for direct add on. So mayne no conspiracy theory.

If I don't get the points from 2012 then that would take my offer off the table. I can buy resale for 1/2 of the direct price, and even if I don't get any banked points, come out better. I gave them my CC for the $500 down, but was assured it would not be charged until I get a call from my Guide that they actually have the points I want.

Getting points "thrown in" is dependent on when you buy. If you are buying in the 2012 UY you get 2012 points, that is what you paid for.

Guides often make it seem like you are getting something extra but in reality you aren't.

A September UY would get 2012 points because you are still in the 2012 UY.

Points acquired by Disney are striped from the contracts and put into a pot by UY. They don't pass prior years points on to new buyers even if the acquired contract had them, it's not like resale.

Honestly, I don't need 2012 pts. because we are booking our vacation in Oct of next year so I wouldn't be in the window of booking those points.

CMOORE185 06-28-2013 08:30 AM

I don't even know who my guide is anymore it changes so much.

1. Don't buy a sold out resort direct.

2. If you ignore #1, you DO want those points because they will bank them for you at closing. In effect this will give you 400 September 2013 points, half of which you can bank into 2014 UY if you desired. Closing a new sale, they will automatically bank the 2012 points into your coming 2013 UY regardless of your usual banking window. They may act like this is doing you a favor. It isn't, rather it is just their standard procedure.

So even if you personally aren't going on a vacation in the September 2013 UY, you could rent those banked 2012 points through David's for $11/pt. At 200 points, your statement above is equivalent to "I don't want Disney to give me $2200 of effortless income, but it seems like a good idea to grossly overpay for BCV resale..."

In reality, at least the 2012 points would effectively drop your purchase price by $11/pt. How could you possibly not want that???
