Sell one contract & add to another?

I have 100 Saratoga pts that I want to sell , and I want to purchase 150 BWV pts. Will Disney buy back Saratoga and put that toward the selling price of BWV?

No, you'd have to sell, pay the commission then pay the closing and costs of BWV. You'll lose roughly $1100 assuming the same points accounting and purchase price. Likely your best bet is to add a smaller BWV contract of 50-100 points, at least from a cost standpoint.

I'm looking to buy 100 SSR points... You don't have an OCT UY do you?

That is a really good idea.

If you buy a 75 point contract and bank EOY, then you will have 150 points to use.

I think people's needs and desires change and in a few years, you may want to sell BWV and buy GF of Poly.

Keep SSR and use at 7 month window to book at BWV and/or look for a 75 point BWV to book EOY at the 11 month mark and keep both.

You can get very creative when owning a smaller high demand resort plus other points. You can reserve an entire trip (or portion of it) with the high demand points at 11 months out then at 7 months, book additional or replacement components with the other points. Another approach is to book the front end of a trip at 11 months then as the 7 month window approaches, book the first days with the other points and take the freed up high demand points and book the back end days. Essentially the walking idea but at the 7 month window and using non home resort points at the very end of the home resort window. While a little extra aggravation, these options have the advantage of either potentially booking a trip at the high demand resort for more points than you could get together banking/borrowing for the smaller high demand contract and/or allow you to work more with current UY points to minimize the risks associated with using banked/borrowed points. While not directly related, these type of approaches can be used to work with holding account points as well. Just remember that it's usually a good idea to book something at 11 months so you'll have a place to stay even if you have to move resorts or stay at a non preferred location.

That's a very creative idea on how to walk a reservation.

Maybe, there are many variations on this and similar themes and these play into my feeling that EVERY change to a given reservation should be a cancelation and rebooking. Otherwise it'll be hit or mis, allowed in one situation or to one person and not in another. This seems to be the Disney way, to be inconsistent. I'm of the opinion that the very best way to win with such issues is to have a lot of points and at least 2 or 3 home resorts, preferably one to use as a points cow. Remember you can also walk a reservation at 7 months just like you can at 11 months, it only has to be available for the first day plus there is the possibility some later days may not be available. Of course there's real costs to having high demand and extra points.
