Thanks everyone for the great advice. I think we're going to do 200 points at VGF but I have one last question. My guide said I will get 200 points now for 2013 then in Feb I will get another 200 for 2014. My plan would be to book VGF for late August using the 400 points but do I have to wait for my 2014 points to be available to do that or can I go ahead and book when my 11 month window opens? I guess I would be "borrowing" the 2014 points at that time?

You might want to check with your salesperson. February UYs aren't getting 2013 points (because the resort didn't exist in 2013 -- April is the earliest UY that will get 2013 points). So you won't get points until 2014. So you'd have to borrow your 2015 points to use for August.

But to answer your original question, all the points you own are available in your account, they don't actually deposit there each year. You have to have enough points in the UY you want to book a reservation in, so for a Feb. UY, an August 2014 trip would fall in your 2014 UY.

April is the first UY you can receive points for VGF. A Feb UY will not give you points until Feb 14 and if you want to book 11 months out for August next year you would book in September and would borrow your 2014 points from Feb that would only give you 200.

So ask for an April UY and you will be able to use your 2013 points and borrow against your 2014 points. You will also only be paying partial dues for 2013 points which is $1.04 per point due to the resorts opening date of October 23.

Just to clarify this a bit... An August 2014 trip would fall in the 2014 UY (if you have a Feb. UY), so to book the trip, OP would go online in September and use their 2014 points and borrow their 2015 points to get to 400 points. UY has nothing to do with when you book.

I will check with my guide tomorrow but when we spoke earlier this evening he said I am buying 2013 points now and in Feb 2014 I will get 200 more points. I will definitely ask again though to be sure I didnt misunderstand him. Thanks!

To be clear, there are only two real options here. Either you misunderstood him or he told you something that is factually inaccurate. Regardless, I wouldn't just glance over this. There is ZERO chance of you getting February 2013 points, so no matter how much he says this, it's not going to be the case. Good luck, please let us know what happens.

Yep, you were correct. I misunderstood what my guide told me last night. AKV would give me a Feb date but for VGF it will be April. I'm going with VGF! Thanks everyone for your help!

FYI,

You can purchase 100 at AKV and 100 at GFV and than alternate years.

For example you would have 200 points via borrowing for year 1 at AKV at 11 month mark.

In year two you would have 200 via borrowing for ressies at GFV at 11 month mark and so on.

OP already has plans to bank/borrow the 200 points total (for a 400-point reservation), so splitting the contract would make things more difficult.

OP, I'm so glad it all worked out! Congrats!
