"Congratulations" to tmc2469 who added on 1000 pts at SSR to give him a total of 3000 pts.http://users.pandora.be/eforum/emoticons4u/fingers/fing22.gif

Here is a post below from an earlier thread by tmc2469, on what he does with his points. This was before the 1000 pt add-on at SSR.

QUOTE]Originally posted by tmc2469
To answer a few questions posted here. We are fortunate to have accumulated 1,000 BCV & 1,000 BWV points over the years.

We did this for several reasons. We use approximately 600-1,000 points each year ourselves with various trips to WDW. At least once a year with our four daughters and a couple of times a year with just me and my wife. The girls love WDW and can't wait to go back. Since we have been members (1996) we seem to always have visitors each time we go. This April we have a family reunion with 23 of my wife's family.

The other 1,000 points we rent out each year and have for the last 2 years. We mainly rent to friends and family but have rented on the DisBoard many times. We did this so we can give each of our four girls 250-350 points when then turn 30. My wife and I wanted to make sure that their children, our grandchildren, can experience WDW when they have kids of their own. We have never had a problem with renting and have calculated that we will have paid off the points with the rent that we charge in just over 17 years (based on what we paid when we purchased the points plus dues and taxes each year.) This will give them just over 20 years to enjoy WDW themselves.

If I could I would buy another 1,000. but you have to work some time. [/QUOTE]

I could only guess what your dues and taxes are every year.Money has to be no object with all of the over 1000 club members.I have 400 points and mine is in the $1,800 range.I wanted to go another 100 points but my monthly payment is high enough.Im glad someone can do it.

Very smart to rent out points to cover the cost. Actually, that makes DVC a real good investment!!!

I thought that I had recalled reading that there was a limit on the total number of points that an individual could owe. I think it was:

2000 points per DVC resort

&

5000 points DVC total

Anyone ever heard of anyone being limited by the 2000 number or whether any lottery winner ever bought the 5000 limit. I would.

paulh and Divamomto3....rest assured, the CM's at WDW have no idea how many points you have, and you'll see no difference in service.

Likewise, I'm quite confident that MS will handle customers of all point range ownership equally.

I wouldn't think twice about that.

The Scribe is often not the history maker, but the recorder. That said, Homer and those who have followed have made a pretty good name for themselves.

Thus, in my book...Nick is our "Homer" ("Simpson" or "the author of the 'Illiad' and 'Odyssey'"...you pick). ;)

I am on the list but find it hard to say no to friends or family who want to rent points from me at cost. I charge them $6 for OKW and $8 for the other WDW reosrts and I have gotten complaints about too much $$$. I am not sure what a point actually costs but figure since we bought our OKW points when DVC started that $6 was enough to cover my cost there but the BCV and The BWV cost us more so we charge more. This OP says he rents the points to relatives and friends or posts them on the disboards but I am not sure that $10 is a fair rate for my points so I don't list there. Have any of you had experience renting points to others? I would like imput about how much to charge relatives and friends as well as what I should charge on the disboards..

Thank you,
Marylyn


\Here is a post below from an earlier thread by tmc2469, on what he does with his points. This was before the 1000 pt add-on at SSR.

QUOTE]Originally posted by tmc2469
To answer a few questions posted here. We are fortunate to have accumulated 1,000 BCV & 1,000 BWV points over the years.

We did this for several reasons. We use approximately 600-1,000 points each year ourselves with various trips to WDW. At least once a year with our four daughters and a couple of times a year with just me and my wife. The girls love WDW and can't wait to go back. Since we have been members (1996) we seem to always have visitors each time we go. This April we have a family reunion with 23 of my wife's family.

The other 1,000 points we rent out each year and have for the last 2 years. We mainly rent to friends and family but have rented on the DisBoard many times. We did this so we can give each of our four girls 250-350 points when then turn 30. My wife and I wanted to make sure that their children, our grandchildren, can experience WDW when they have kids of their own. We have never had a problem with renting and have calculated that we will have paid off the points with the rent that we charge in just over 17 years (based on what we paid when we purchased the points plus dues and taxes each year.) This will give them just over 20 years to enjoy WDW themselves.

If I could I would buy another 1,000. but you have to work some time. [/QUOTE]

My wife and I own 3500 points. The first 1500 we purchased at
OKW in 1993... followed by 1000 more in 1994. I then added 1000 at VWL in 2000.

It really isn't a big deal to us... My wife manages the points we use and then give the others away to family and friends. We spend roughly two months at the various resorts per year...

We have provided stays for several parties who otherwise would not have traveled to Walt Disney World. Oftentimes we will stay at our home in Celebration and arrange friends to stay at one of the DVC resorts. In response to the number of PMs that we have received, no we do not rent our points.

Big deal, it isn't enough that you have tons of money you feel the need to brag and flaunt about it. Wow impressive making others feel inferior because you have so much.


Updated: i'm not trying to make it ugly (see post below) just trying to give a perspective on how people that aren't well off feel. It doesn't hurt to have opinions.

From: Icy-Dog : am on the list but find it hard to say no to friends or family who want to rent points from me at cost

WOW! Renting points to family and friends. I am glad you are not in my family!

We just treated my brother and his wife to 5 days at WDW this summer. First time for her (she is over 40), and he has not been since 1972.. Just to see her/his face was enough for me.

Let's see, renting points for a 2 br: 32x5=160ptsx$6=$960..
GEESHHHH.....:rolleyes:

If you feel inferior I would check the mirror. You may have self esteem problems. I really think it's you with the attitude probelm. I don't feel he was bragging but simply answering the qwuestions of others about how he uses his points. I am floored that he lives practically in Disney World and has the largess to make his timeshare available to others so that they too can enjoy all that is the Disney Experience. I wish I had the money to do the same but, that being said, I hold no grudge that this couple does.

I was talking about friends and distant relatives. We always give our points to our kids, sisters and nieces etc. We always seem to have at least a couple of people with us and then we get larger accommodations to make them comfortable. Even with only my niece with us we get a twwo bdrm so she feels she has some privacy. In December we are taking close friends and again with no renumeration. In April we took the whole family to Vero. We rented a beach cottage and two hotel rooms to accommodate our party of 12. We didn't want anyone to be squashed so we had a lot of rooms.
I'm sorry you misunderstood my post. I also wish I had 3500 points, and that I lived in Celebration, and could afford to give my points away. I don't, but I'm glad someone is able to do just that. More power to him

How generous of you to share your points with your loved ones! If I was in your position, I'd do the exact same thing. To see both adult and kid's faces when they walk into MK for the first time, even if they've been before, is priceless!

OKW in 1993... followed by 1000 more in 1994. I then added 1000 at VWL in 2000.

It really isn't a big deal to us... My wife manages the points we use and then give the others away to family and friends. We spend roughly two months at the various resorts per year...

That's great to hear how you share with everyone! Good for you! :sunny:

Thats very nice of you to share your pts with familiy and friends. I notice your location says "Pennsylvania", does that mean you have a winter home in "Celebration" also or do you live in Florida all the time?

Our main residence is in Southeastern Pennsylvania... We built our home in Celebration in 1997. Just spoke with one of our neighbors and he reported no problems from the storm...

Welcome fellow southeastern PAer. You have a great combination. Delaware Valley for seasons, Celebration for winter and DVC for fun!

King Leo, if you need to adopt a son, please let me know ;)

Although, I'm Southern born and bred, my father's bloodline is from the Main Line area.

When the thread first started I had 1225 points. I sold 290 BWV pts and then added 150 Vero Beach pts leaving me with a total of 1085. I still make the cut, whoopee!!! ;)

Just bought our 175 last week, so I only need 6 more contracts like that to make the list....;)

I think it is great that there are so many people who love DVC so much. Speaks well of the whole bunch and it makes me proud to be a small part of it!

As for those that rent to family, I totally understand that! My cousin just bought a ski condo in NH that we are hoping to stay at next year. And we will pay the same price as anyone else he might rent to. He has costs to cover and my family will create the same wear and tear on the place that any other would. No judgement here. Hopefully we will be in a position for more points someday, although DH would say that we need to at least use the ones that we have once before we consider an add on!

Be careful DVC points are like peanuts.:laughing:

I am glad I only have two children. Then I will only need 600 to 700 points to give them vacations. To be honest, that is what my plan was to do anyway. I have 371 points and just joined.

I totally understand the big points... I think 700 will be fine for my needs. My family is so small a shoe is too big for us.

I am slowly inching my way there. When/If CRV becomes a reality I will probably then be at the 1000 mark.

I wish I had that kind of time to spend away! But.....our points serve us quite well, no complaints here. Anyone who owns is fortunate, enjoy all!

I didn't know there was a club, I own 1,410 points and between my brother and sister along with myself we own 4,000 points. We use half or more and rent the rest.

We all need to keep in mind that we are all fortunate to own any size piece of the DVC pie!!!

I know many families who will never even see WDW, let alone, whenever they please ( Like all of us).

wether you own 150 pts or 1500 pts, I think we are all lucky....

Love WDW!!!!:cloud9:
