For this year, I got a good bonus from work so that took care of this year and I was even able to get the deal for the PAP
THANKS AGAIN
I'm confused. I just went back and read your post again. I'm glad you got out of the jam this year, but if I'm understanding correctly you didn't rent out any points or apply any money towards your loan? After rereading your first post, it was easy to see the stress that you were feeling when you wrote it. My concern is that at some point in the future you are going to have the same experience. I'd still suggest that taking one year off, take the money that you would've spent on tickets, travel, expenses and couple that with the revenue you get from renting your points and pay down your loan balance a bit. I think you will be glad you did in the long term. But I could be wrong. Good luck.

That would drop your fees by 30% right off the top.

Seeing how you have been able to use it for three years I wouldn't look at it as a loss. The amount you saved on those vacations probably offset the price difference.
Wow - I guess I have been out of the loop. We purchased AKV points a few years ago and we just added on this summer. We should have looked at re-sell. $65 - $75 is cheap compared to what we paid - UGH! I don't think I will tell my DH this.

I see your point, we are going to take a break after using the PAP and we are also thinking of probably seeling one of my contracts to my sister, she wants to buy 100 points from me. But again we are looking at diferent option for the future, also one big bill that we have with my son in a private HS will be done by next year and he is getting a scholarship for College, so things are looking good.
thanks again for your concern!

Thanks for clarifying. I think this is a good pointer that we really don't know the whole story about anybody's situation and our advice is generic and not specific. Obviously saying goodbye to the tuition bill will mean a whole different situation for you. I simply took notice of your initial panic and didn't want to see that come up again. Glad to hear that you've got it covered.
