VGC add on question?

I have a Dec UY. And from my understanding VGC will open in Nov. If I added on 75 points, would I also get '08 points as well? Or not because it is a new resort?

I believe you would get 2009 points. We have an Aug UY and recevied 2009 points. I think the Feb - Jun UY don't get points until 2010.

You would receive 2009 points. Since the resort doesn't open until Nov 2009, there are no 2008 points to receive.

I'm not sure what the cutoff is for 2009 points, but I do know that June UY gets 2009 points.

Looks like it might be UY up to 6 months prior to scheduled opening get the points, others don't.

Thanks for clarifying, I knew our Feb UY wouldn't of received points until 2010, but it really did matter to us as we wanted all our VGC points under our Aug UY.

Yes, our guide came off as rather sneaky on this issue. I wanted the June UY at GCV for the sake of getting 2009 points (she was pushing Feb, which as mentioned, would mean we'd receive no points until 2010). We actually had to shred our first set of papers on the add-on because they "accidently" sent us a contract with Feb 2010 UY. Ugh.

Still, I shouldn't complain. The 4 night cruise for four (with gratuity included) appears to be worth >$2500, and we have our 125 GCV points available without borrowing in just a couple weeks, and we got the points for $104 each ($8 off, decided we'd rather pay $104 per point with a great cruise than $96).

If you're willing to use rationalizing math... you could argue that 125 points at GCV costs $14,000.00, but DVC took $1,000 of the top, then threw in a $3,000 cruise, then gave us another $1000 worth of points, making the purchase really cost only $9k, or about $72 a point. This is questionable logic, but it sounded good to the Mrs. When we bought one of the early SSR contracts five years ago I think we got a worse deal. Maybe DVC has felt the effects of the real estate market a bit.
