If New Changes, Question About "Old Grandfathered" Resale

We purchased 420 resale points in 2009 for SSR.
When DVC changed their rules a year or so ago about resales no longer being able to use their poitns for CC and DCL, we were grandfathered in and our points were seen when booking as points purchased from Disney.

Now, if there are new changes coming, I'm guessing that we will still be grandfathered since we were once already? I know nothing is certain but just wanted to throw it out there.

Thanks.

Disney can do what ever they want but I would expect that any additional restrictions would be grandfathered also.

I think you're safe assuming you'd be grandfathered, the only issue that might get you could be related to a VIP system if one were to be developed.

Thanks Dean, why would that be? Is it the amount of points or just thinking that they would make something called VIP which would be only for direct sales. I'm guessing you are the same Dean from tug due to your avatar, is that correct?

Thanks.

While I'm surprised they haven't created a VIP program, it seems unlikely this late in the game. However, IF they did, it'd likely be based on how many qualified points you owned so you'd have to both have enough points to qualify and have those count as retail points (inc those before March). I have participated with TUG over the years but not as much the last year or so.

Dean, would you give us your best guess at what that qualified points level could be? Are we talking something as high as 1000?

Thanks, and I get this is all rumor, spit-balling.

We've had this discussion before so I don't want to get too involved in it this time. My guess is somewhere around 400 & 800 qualified points for a 2 tier system (plus the based level), 400, 700 & 1000 for a 3 tier system and so on. Once you get to 4 or 5 levels, you likely drop the qualifying amount to around 300 to start. I doubt referrals would be included as a criteria. Bluegreen has 4 levels above base, Marriott has 2 (timeshare), I'm not sure about Wyndham so I'll let others comment that are more certain.
