I think UY are the most overrated part of a contract. If something ever happens less than a month out, and you have to cancel, your points will be in holding anyway. Distressed points can almost always be rented, at least for enough to cover MF's.

Just my .02 cents.

I think that with the initial contract, UY doesn't really matter, at least not for us. We tend to go whenever and end up using points at HH before they expire. (Nice benefit of living in SC!)
However, when adding on, I do think it matters. If you buy the same UY as the original contract then the points are easily pooled at 7 months, no hassle of transferring points or joining ressies. That's the reason we went through an "off" broker. I had a really hard time finding BWV in March UY. Took longer, but now happily have both BLT and BWV under same contract.
Good luck!

Sorry! We have 2 June UY and I know they are hard to find! Both our June are desperate though because my mother (who travels with us and wanted the DVC card for discounts on AP's) is named on our second one. They are both ok sized (100 and 150 points) so we don't really have any problems managing them separately. Originally I was only looking at June UY and finding nothing for our 3rd. But then I realized we take a spring trip every couple of years so a June UY is not ideal for those trips. We are currently in ROFR on a Feb SSR contract that fit our needs.

If you have a decent amount of points with your BLT and you add another contract with a decent amount of points then I think a different UY wouldn't be bad. We have 200 OKW June UY and added 75 HH Aug UY (and the new AKV contract is Aug UY too) and it has worked just fine. If we need to use both, as we just did this past January, then it can be tricky with booking part of the resie with one contract and part with the other (getting the right number of nights/points with each membership...you can't book a partial night...for example: say I need to book 5 nights at 32 points each night and I have 75 HH points...I can book 2 nights at 64 points and then have to book the other 3 nights with my other membership that would need to have 96 points). With only having 75 of the HH points, there's only so many nights I can book, so a larger contract would be better (now I will have 175 with Aug UY and that will be better). You can also transfer points over from 1 membership to another once per year as well and then book the entire resie at 7 months out (since you can only book the home resort at 11 months out). Also with banking/borrowing, you can use 1 membership with each trip (alternating trips between memberships). I'd prefer to have all my contracts with the same UY. It would just make booking a simple thoughtless process, but it's not a huge effort to make the 2 UY work. Good luck on your hunt!

Thanks for the advice everyone.
I'm thinking that I should stick with one use year, mostly because I like
to keep everything simple and tidy.
I wonder if there's a better time of the year to find June U/Y contracts? It seems like they're so few and far between that I might not find another one.

Good luck to everyone else waiting to get waived by Disney!

I would have preferred to keep the same UY as well. I have a June UY BLT and was searching for months for a June BWV. I never could find anything. It seemed June never showed up. An August UY came available with the points I was looking for at the price I wanted to pay. I went ahead and jumped on it. Hopefully, it will not be too troublesome to handle. However, as luck would have it, the day before I got the notice that we passed ROFR, a June UY BWV showed up with the exact points I was looking for at just a slightly higher price. So, had I waited another month, I may have lucked out. Oh well. Keep your eyes peeled. If you are patient (as apparently I was not patient enough), one should come available. Be ready to act fast though.

Well I have a new offer out on a BLT contract but instead of a Dec UY, it is Feb. I can live with that. Also hoping that maybe a Feb UY will have a better chance of passing vs a Dec UY.

On the other contract that got picked up I don't know if it was the Dec UY or being loaded. My agent was shocked it got picked up but did say that they did get a lot of contracts picked up this week.

At that price I am now convinced that they are hunting Dec UY. I didn't hear yet and we went the same day.
Good luck. We will have to see what happens with other contracts to see if this is the start of a new trend. I hope to have a new deal go to Disney next week.

So we are new to the thread, beck and I... We put in a contract on an SSR stripped of 2012 points fully loaded 2013, 2014 at SSR, $59 a point, buyer paid closing, maintenance. Not the lowest number out there but, we've tried to find one of those "great" deals for months and not had any luck...

We've been following some of the ROFR's lately and we'll be happy if we don't get ROFR'd at $59 a point... It's a 200 point contract so we're in the same boat with some of you sitting back and waiting! All the best!

Also new to this thread. Contract submitted 2/5 for ROFR.

110 SSR, Dec UY, 21 banked from 2011 expire 11/30/13, all of 2012 (already banked) and 2013 coming 12/1/13. Buyer pays closing and MF. $65 (Which I now see is high, but that's ok. Hoping that means we'll pass ROFR. It's our first purchase and would be bummed if we had to start all over again!)

Congrats and good luck! One thing to think about, if you want to go on a trip this year you can borrow your 2013 points into your 2012 use year. Basically it's like swapping your 2012 and 2013 points. Keep in mind, though, that these points would need to be used by 11/30/13, so if you think there is a chance of your cancelling the trip, there is risk involved. Good luck with ROFR!

Thanks! We are thinking of taking a quick summer trip since we'll have 21 points to use up, and would need to borrow a handful of 2013 points. I'm looking forward to when everything's settled and I can see what's available to start planning.
