Thinking of Adding On via Resale
We've been a member since 2010 and bought direct and paid in cash. We purchased 170 BLT points for a family of 5 staying at a BLT 1 BR Theme park view every other year for a week during the Dream Season.
Since then, we have actually taken a trip every year, and was able to stay at a 2BR OKW, 1BR AKL, and 1BR VGC + a Deluxe Family Stateroom with Verandah Dream Cruise (perk of the purchase + $) while also renting out some points... so I feel we're well on our way into getting our $$$ back.
Since then, we've been blessed by another boy, so we only have until 2014 to squeeze into a 1BR so I'm really thinking of adding on. I was hoping you can help me in deciding the right # of points, the UY and which home resort. Or help me talk thru my options.
Here's what I think my options are:
1. Add on more BLT points with same UY (April) enough to have points for a 2BR EOY. This will mean just an additional 50 points.
This will keep everything simple and as I understand it, same Member ID? But I might have to buy direct or wait for the perfect/right contract to come along which could take a while.
2. Get another mid-sized contract on another resort that the kids will really like, BCV/BWV/AKL with a different UY. I'm leaning 150 points BCV @ $75. My current preferred option.
The reason I want a different UY is that I always wanted to have the option to do a last minute December, January (MLK) or Feb (President's day) trip -- but I would have already banked any remaining points by November 30th. So I'm thinking maybe I should get a UY where I bank by end of March (so July UY?)
While more expensive than below, AKL/BVW/BCV are rentable properties. And since I'm finding us with extra points we were able to rent (not HAD to rent) these previous years, I wanted to make sure renting is still an option.
3. Get the cheapest points. 150 points SSR/HHI/Vero with a July UY.
Once I decide to have a different home resort than BLT, it doesn't really make sense to keep the April UY. The only thing I don't like about #3 is that I don't think these points are "rentable". Transferrable yeah, but not sure how easy/many opportunities for those there are out there.
