Just curious, considering the "add-onitis" that seems to be such a part of DVC life ... if you've added on since your original contract, how many times? We're sorta in the "acute" phase - I'd love another 100 at SSR.

Write-in's welcome!

Our second contract was a biggie to make sure our needs were fully covered at WDW. I don't see us adding on any more at WDW.

But I do have my eye on HHI. Someday maybe... :rolleyes:

We "added on" once by buying another 200 point contract at BWV on the resale market to go with our 230 point contract at OKW. They are different use years which can take a bit of juggling with points.

OT ... about your signature. I think it's cool that your son is in your signature, but I thought there were women in the marines too. So, shouldn't it be "Band of Brothers and Sisters?" :teeth:

Robin, you're absolutely right! ;)

There are sisters, too, but this particular photograph he sent us were just "the guys" - no sisters shown! And, sorta harking back to Shakespeare's Henry V (where the "band of brothers" quote originated), and the book and HBO miniseries by the same title, etc. - "Band of Brothers" is appropriate, I think. Jeremy's in the infantry, which actually is all-male, but I in no fashion meant to slight ANY of our women in ANY of the service branches!

But I digress. :rolleyes: Back on topic!

We have added on 3 times since our original contract.

Original contract: 200 pts. BWV Aug. 2000
1st add-on: 100 pts. BWV Sept. 2000 (2 weeks later!)
2nd add-on: 100 pts. HH Aug. 2001
3rd add-on: 65 pts. HH Aug. 2002

We just bought our initial contract less than 3 weeks ago and I bought an add-on this week. Give me a little more time and who knows what I might add!

Original contract bought in May, first add on this week! Haven't even used membership yet. :eek: Sorry guys, I blame this board for both contracts! This board put a spell on me to get my family in debt! ;)

Originally had 230 at BWV, then added on another 70. Bought 100 pts at BCV and just recently bought another 100 at BWV.

We started with 230 at OKW in 1999..................4 add-ons later we now have 300 at OKW and 300 at VB.......................on the bright side side though.........all of our pts were at $65 per pt.http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/family/biggthumpup.gif

P.S. Our 2 kids(29+17) will each have a DVC contract.

We only have 3 add-on's (220 OKW 96 original, 25 OKW 99, 100 BCV 2002 & 55 OKW 2003.) If was not for my DW, I think I would have many more :) Some times I am glad she shots me down on the add-on bug. Was called about a month ago for more OWK points, but had to turn it down because we got a new concrete drive way put in that week. I hope I can get her to go for am add-on at SSR for 100pts. Wish me luck.

We added on once.
BCV 200 initial, added 100 =300 total.
DW and I with "brilliant"(and expensive) idea.
We now need to do 3 more add ons, 300 points each.
The original 300 we will keep.
The add-ons we will give to our children when they turn 18 or 21.
So, I guess we will be calling Hassan (our guide) soon, but first, baby #3 has to arrive--scheduled for 10/15.
I guess one add on a year for the next 3 years.
This addonitis is contagious and the only known cure is to simply send the DVC all of your money and take as many points as you can.
And I speak as a health care professional (MD)when I say this--for your own health and well being I must insist that you excerise daily, eat healthy foods, don't smoke, and by all means, add on all the points you can.:teeth:
PS-You must also be very nice and pay homage to the Tag Fairy, this too, will make your life much happier.(Obviously, not above kissing up. :smooth:

Original contract plus five add-ons. At one point we were adding so fast, that the paperwork was not even here yet before we added more. DVC would just send new paperwork. It was probably poor planning on our part, as we didn't realize how many points we wanted. It turned out better for us though, as this way we have our points spread amongst several contracts.
The result means our last add-on was # .009 :cool:

Two add-ons (VWL & BCV) to our initial purchase at VB.

I voted twice. Once was an add-on to our original BCV contract and the second was the OKW resale.

Original contract for 270 points and added on 30 more. I want to add on another 50 . . . ..

We started with 230 points at OKW, and added on another 150 points there about a year and a half later. We debated at that time about purchasing our extra 150 at BWV, but decided we wanted them all in one place, since we intended to use them most often at OKW. I am thinking it would be nice to have a few points at one of the Epcot resorts for the F&WF.

We started out with 230 OKW pts. Added 100, then another 100, then 170 for a grand total of 600 at OKW!:D

We first wanted BCV but they just broke ground so we bought at the VWL. When they started selling for the BCV we jumped right on and the BCV became our 2nd home.Now I want SSR but have other things on the fire so im laying low for a while.

We started out with 170 BWV points. When I heard BW was selling out(a year after we bought maybe??) I mentioned it to DH, and he said oh yeah? Then later came back and said we need to add on 30 points so we have an even 200. I love him! LOL
Then in Sept 2001, I had my son-Yay!..but was sad we were missing our annual fall trip, so to cheer me up, I told DH we needed to buy HH points-50(I had never been but figured it would be fun), he said yeah right, but later that day said..Call DVC, but what good is 50, get 100. :D
Then last year I was thinking that we really needed more BWV points, but I really only wanted 25-30 more, so I posted a question on the AOL DVC boards asking about waiting lists for points, and a friend of mine read it emailed me and told me she was selling all her BWV points to buy BCV, and she had a 25 point add on she'd be more then happy to see me as a resale. Yay!
Soo, we have 225 BWV and 100 HH, and always bank(BW anyway) so we have no need for more, unless DH gets more vacation time..and a bigger salary! LOL

We bought 170 points initially and ended up adding another 130 shortly afterwards. Decided we needed another 50 and BWV was sold out so we bought VWL. I kind of wish all of our points were in one place, anyone wanna swap 50 BWV points for 50 VWL? :)

Maistre Gracey, you still can add on 990 more times before you break DVC's numbering system!

Bought my first 175 pts. - BWV
Added on 50 pts. - BWV
Added on 25 pts. - BWV
Added on 125 pts. - BCV

Total - 375 pts. I'm done. Can't take on any more dues. :(

Hey, sanddune! You definitely belong in the top 20 list for point holders. I'll let someone else edit you in. :D

09-08-2003, 04:20 PM
We added on once, giving us a total of 225 points, if I could sell my Vistana I would probably add on again, but we just bought DD a horse and are boarding him at a barn that is just sucking us dry when it comes to funds!!! Stupid us got her a show horse, so now she is pushing to show!! Chaching, Chaching!!!But after see the SAB pictures, that changes my thought of BWV!!!

09-08-2003, 08:39 PM
LOL at Maistre Gracey!!!:teeth:
You're safe for a while longer. The only other expense I have found more effective than the DVC addonitis bug at vacuuming your wallet dry is about to arrive, well in about 5 weeks. Dont expect to add on again until later next year, after our diaper expense tapers.
But then watch out, once our newest addition is out of diapers, I'm going to take all of that money that I spent on diapers and send it to the DVC. Heck, that alone could put me at #1. LOL
So relax for now.......but I'm gunning for ya!!!:p :smooth:

It would be interesting to see how this question breaks down by where you live. I suspect that East coasters add on a lot more than places that are further from WDW.
