At the 7 month mark, can I use both my BLT and VWL points to book a reservation at BLT? Can the points be combined?

If they are under the same membership number, yes they can be combined at 7 months.

I don't think that you can use 11 points from one contract and 9 points from another to book a room that is 20 points for one night.

Potentially you can do the same thing if they are different master contracts even if banked/borrowed points but it is more complicated.

Thank you. They are all under one master contract--some at VWL and I just added on at BLT.

I am trying to plan for next years vacation already and just wanted to make sure that I could, at the 7 month mark, try to change my VWL ressies over to BLT and upgrade from the studio to the 1 bedroom--obvious, there has to be availability, but at least I know I can use the VWL and BLT points to do it at that point.

I didn't really want to have to borrow any points, but I needed points from both to get my 5th night.

Since you have BLT points are you planning to book some of your vacation at the 11 month mark? At the 7 month mark you can then add more days using the VWL points if rooms exist. At least you can have a good chance of getting something at BLT that way. You may have to move out of BLT if more days are not available, but at least you're in if you wanted to try the place.

Yes, my plan is to make 4 nights at BLT and then 1 night at VWL at the 11 month mark for each resort using the home resort points. Then, at 7 months, I will try to get the 5th night at BLT by canceling the VWL night and moving by combining the VWL points and the left over BLT points I have.

If there is no availablity to do this, I can just waitlist it. Worst case, I stay my first night at VWL and then move to BLT for the last 4--not ideal, but no biggie!
