I am curious about what the purpose of this thread is. :confused3

Maybe you all should lobby for your own "Club-1000" board?

And then the rest of us can belong to the "Sub-Par-Club" board. Or the "Bitty Board." Or whatever we want to call it.

JimC has been the "new" keeper of the flame, after our last keeper retired.

It's just a fun thing, and I would hope nobody takes it personally.

Thanx for taking on the task of the flame keeper, Jim! :drinking:

I need to know exactly how you spend 3500 or so points a year. I'm not being nasty, I just need to know how you spend them. Grandvillas? Holiday? The winter months?

Kim,

This board is a place for people who own DVC to get together and talk about thier DVC. This thread meets those guidelines and does not have to have a point. While I am not a member of the 1000 point club - far from it with only 285 points, I am not offended by people wanting to express thier excitement about having that many. As long as they don't start making comments like you suggested - ie we are a inferior group, then they are fine.

You see there are many more of us than there are of them. Think Bug's Life - ants vs. grasshoppers. :)

If you take a look, you will notice that neither Jim, nor the original "keeper" are on the list.
Therefore, it's hard to make the case that Jim is tooting his own horn. :drinking:

I find no problem with keeping this list, or the thread.

Deep-Thots:
What's wrong with horn tooting? Alot of the threads on the DIS boards are ones in which people make "woo-hoo" posts looking to share in what they find to be happy about -- like 'my son struck a home run' -- or, 'I got a raise' --that sort of thing. I really don't see any suggestions here that should one not be on 'the' list that that's a shortcoming.

I bet most folks who acquire alot of points don't do it in one massive buy, but slowly over time as they save and can afford to do so. In that sense saying "I'm in the club" is a statement of accomplishment that gives the achiever a sense of satisfaction -- I think thats great! And truth be told, I suspect that most major point holders do alot of really nice things for their family, friends, employees etc with those points. And that's a good reason to accumulate points too.

I think it's fun to see this thread, and it's been in existence for a long time, deep thots, it's not just new today. There are many people are the DIS who enjoy discussing their trips, how many points they have, how they use them, etc. I've never seen a thread that implied people with a lot of points felt superior to those with fewer. If it offends you, the subject of the posts is easily identifed in the title and you can avoid it in the future.

Hey, having a 1000+ list is a Good Thing. We'll know who to hit up for transfers if they can't use all of their lovely points. Or if they feel like sharing their GV.

If we could do it, we'd have mega-lotsa points, too. I look upon these fine, point-blessed people as role models.

I'm another one who finds this very interesting. I'd be interested in knowing more about how y'all came to have so many points? Start small, then lots of add-ons or did you do it all in a couple big purchases? And did anyone get so many points so that they can live my dream-become a "Winter DVCian" (in our area we have many Winter Texans, in some places they're "snowbirds") I think it must be so great to have so many points and just "have to" figure out how to use them all.

I got the fever!

I missed the initial offering, as I visited WDW for our honeymoon in 1990. In 2000ish I stumbled on the DisBoards (please don't ask what happened to that UserID. I forgot the password, ya know!). I lurked and waited until 2003 to buy in. I bought 2 resales from the TTS via Jason (100% RECOMMENDATION!)
1) 400 Point OKW (almost a triple)
2) 300 Point BWV (a triple)

and then Disney had a super incentive for SSR.
3) 130 SSR points.

Haven't been home yet, and decided I wanted VWL. Lost out on a 270 point triple at $74 pp, I'm still smarting over that one.

4) November 2004, bought 2 - 120 point SSRs with incentive, 2004 points and 100 'Developer point'

5) December bought a 30 pont VWL direct from Disney to console my 'loss'

I rented out all the banked, developer points, and I have stayed at BWV in April 2005, OKW July 2005 and will be going to VWL December 2005, and SSR or BCV in April 2006.

I was able to buy these points via my corporation, as I also reward employees with a week at Disney. This structure made it very affordable for this purchase schedule, especially as I rented my 'excess' points. I don't think I'll be renting too much in the future, as I enjoy the 2BRs!

I think that it is neat to see the 1000 club. I don't think anyone is showing off. It is kind of like watching MTV cribs or lifestyles of the rich and famous. It is just fun to see how the other half lives.

Well, I'll say it--I'm a 1000 pt wanna-be! I might make it for about 15 minutes, then I will retire and sell my points so I won't have to eat dog food while vacationing in my OKW grande villa! :scared1:

I'm glad that someone took over as keeper of the points, since I like to know who has moved up(or down) on the list. Keep up the good work! :teeth:

Tony - I'm looking for a new job!

You know what my dream would be? Own enough points to live at OKW for 4 months a year.... or 5.. or 6... I think it's great many people have enough points to do something like that!!!

Right now it's storming so hard it's nearly pitch black outside! (just interesting to me, no one else..) what a downpour!

Well, we're at 920 points -- not in "The Club" just yet.
We got ours by;
230pts + 240 pts + 250 pts + 150 pts + 50 pts.

Our 'Goal' is to reach enough points so that we can spend from the 2nd week in January thur April at WDW -- to avoid our harsh winters. I estimate that will take about 3000 points. We are working and saving in the hopes of being able to reach that point level over the next 5 years.

"Woo-Hoo!" ;)

I think most who posted in this thread did it over time with smaller contracts. I think that is the best way to do it.

We started with 220 points and did 5 add-ons. We are working class folks. We have lived in the same house in a lower class, inner city neighborhood for 32 years. DVC is our ONLY luxury. We have many friends and family who work very hard but cannot afford nice vacations, so we almost always take someone along and treat them to accommodations when we go to WDW. We feel so blessed to be creating happy memories with our DVC. Right now MF are not too much for us, but at some point, when mom and dad need help financially, we may have to sell some contracts. In the meantime, we are really enjoying DVC. I would be willing to bet that lots of people use their DVC like we do, whether they have 100 or 3500 points!

We've taken (or sent) employees, and family members and friends, on vacations that they could only dream about. Seeing (or hearing about) their reactions are repayment for the points, MF's with a huge bonus to boot! :):):):)

Maybe we should have a "top 50 DUES" club... :scared1:

We bought into DVC fast and furrious. 2 resale OKW contracts for 200 & 230, then added shorty there after for 270 BWV points (for adult trips), and a total of 300 BCV points that are split up in 2 or 3 contracts (I forget... lol) We use BWV & BCV points for the 11 month window trips, and we use OKW points for everything else (mainly HHI and OKW). We invite family and friends often... and love it.

Major lurker with 200 points.

I think that it is great that these people have these points. I know that they are hard working folks and have saved to make these magical vacations. And giving weeks to employees, how wonderful is that???

:earsgirl:

So congratulations to you folks and feel wonderful when you take your great vacations!

You know what I am jealous of? (seriously here) Having enough vacation time to take advantage of HUGE numbers of points like that! I know there are lots of people with more money than I. I have NO problem with that (well...you know - I wouldn't mind more money lol but I don't begrude other people having it). I have a hard time "spending" our 250 points to get the right balance of "value" with "enjoyment". I don't spend willy nilly points, we try for the best times and seasons, we haven't yet stayed on a weekend (but are at the end of January at HHI just to check out the place for a long weekend!).

I am lucky enough to work where I can take off when I choose for how ever long I choose, but hubby worked for a company where time off is not given as freely (currently a stay at home dad - if this trend continues - vacation time will be a breeze to plan! woohoo! I kinda like him being home :) ). Spreading our vacations between Disney and other places we want to go and see means that 1500 or more points would be next to impossible for me to spend (and I do "rent" points cheaply - just enough to cover the maintenance fees - to family and friends....but that is within the 250 we have! If I had 1000 or more, I would need a full time point planner :p )

So - congrats to you all that have so many points and love them so. :) It wouldn't work for me for now, but I do often get add-onits!!! lol Then I think to how long it took me to spend our first years points this year and I back away from the phone :earboy2: So far, I have resisted!

Also, those of you saying things like "I am sure they work hard to get those points" may well be wrong. How do we know they weren't born with the proverbial "silver spoon" in their mouths?

I can't be 100% sure, but I'm getting the impression that some of the folks in the 1k+ club are using their points for business purposes. Not really the same as personal use.

Congratulations to all of you! If our DFamily ever decided that they want/can vacation with us to WDW on a regular basis, we will join the club. For now, we will work with our 500 points (unless we find ourselves always locked out of BCV at the 7 month mark, then an add on will be required for my sanity)!

Tony - I'm looking for a new job!

You know what my dream would be? Own enough points to live at OKW for 4 months a year.... or 5.. or 6... I think it's great many people have enough points to do something like that!!!

Right now it's storming so hard it's nearly pitch black outside! (just interesting to me, no one else..) what a downpour!

That just might be our 'final' retirement plan, Nov - Mar in Disney, then back to Jooisey!

I can't be 100% sure, but I'm getting the impression that some of the folks in the 1k+ club are using their points for business purposes. Not really the same as personal use.

I agree, and they are probably getting a great tax right off for using it for business.

To all with 1000+.....you lucky people! Enjoy every one of those points...whether you use them yourselves or give them away! :grouphug:

My understanding of the terms (that I used BTW!) are that a 'triple' has 3 UY of points available, such as all 2003 UY banked into 2004, and all 2004 UY points available, and all 2005 points intact, for when the 2005 UY starts!

A near triple is almost a triple, but more than a double.

Toot Toot!

As to the business angle, I can only speak for myself, that buying them through my business saved me a 'real' or 'effective' 40% of the cost, plus made my maint. fees and interest deductible as well. Of course I have to report my income from renting my original 'bonus' points, but that was worth it. However, I was able to maximize my benefits from this arraingement, YMMV.

Well -- speaking as a 'near' "club" member ( 922 pts @ BWV) I can say that we regularly try to attend the Flower & Garden Festival, The Food & Wine Festival, and a Christmas time visit with our points. Idealy each trip is at least 10 nights, split between BWV and OKW.

When we stayed at OKW back in Sept when Hurricane Jeanne came thru there was an "older" couple (Im in my 40's) that we started talking to at the little bar area. Not sure of the name of it but there are only like 5 seats in there and they had excellent conch fritters! But anyways...during the conversation they mentioned that they were staying for about 6 weeks! I couldn't believe it! They told us that they were DVC members and they were just super friendly. After the hurricane ripped thru we went back to the little bar area and there they were again! (or maybe still) Happy, tan and so relaxed. I was thinking to myself Wow...how fantastic to be able to spend that amount of time at OKW in Disney. I want to be just like that couple when I grow up! :) :) :)

I was in the 1,000 point club. 500 at VWL and 500 at SS.

Believe it or not.....it was too many points for me and my family. Thus, I sold 500 points via TTS and I am very happy joining the 500 point club.

I thought there was a maximum of 2000 or 2500 points per person. How did someone get 3,500 points. Besides the maintenance is around $13,000 per year....ouch!!!!

The way someone could have 3,500 is that there is a total you may own per resort and a total you may own over all - so I am guessing that the 3.500 owner is a multiple resort owner.

*wonders if there is anything I can do to butter Tom up to get started on those add-ons* :crazy:

:mickeybar


I believe the maximum is 2,000 per resort and 5,000 overall. But I suspect some careful deeding can bypass this. Just as you can get around the $100,000 FDIC coverage at your bank, you could put contracts in your name, your spouse's name, you and your spouse's name, etc. It is possible that DVC would aggregate common control in their limitation but I don't believe that to be the case. Someone may be able to check the paperwork to be sure on this point.

I have been doing some calculations, (uh-oh), and it seems that 1000 points under the new incentive would be around 83,000. Now, given that a new SUV costs around half that, a two income couple that just drive old cars and have no car payment could well afford the 1000 points. As for the maintenance fees, well that would entail some extra income, say 80 dollars per week.

Boy, call you tell I want to be on the list!!! :rotfl2:

JimC Thanks for the update.

I wish I could explain the 73 points as the end product of advanced calculations :teacher: involving Ordinary Differential Equasions, Calculus, LaPlace Transforms and the cube root of the Lost numbers (4 8 15 16 23 42).

Or better yet the 73 points allow us to stay a full three months during the winter.

Sadly, the truth is much stranger, and perhaps sadder than that.

I had been on a waiting list for EITHER Sept. or Dec. BCV points, just one day shy of 7 months, when my guide called and said she had some available points. I took em all, which turned out to be 73 December points, still no September points available!

However, when the Contemporary DVC becomes available I will buy 127, or 227 points to 'even' my total out again!

Anyone know what the maximum allowed was?

Welcome to the DIS and our forum :) I believe the maximum was 2,000 points.

I note your signature says you are contract number 270. Congratulations on a smart move on your part. We are part of the should have club. It took us ten years after our summer 92 tour to finally join.

The maximum at any one resort is 2000 points and a total of 5000 points.

Some have reported skirting these limits by having some points in the name of one party and more in the name of the spouse - so it is possible to hold more than 500 DVC points.

Sadly I am NOT in the club but I do have a bit of insight...my inlaws have a bunch of DVC contracts as well as Marriott timeshare weeks in Florida. They travel to Florida the 2nd week of January every year and return in April. Their entire stay is split between DVC (typically OKW and BC) and one of the Marriott vacation club resorts in Orlando. They did not want to have to worry about a home or even a condo while they are not in Florida (now I understand after the hurricane season we just had YIKES).

In addition to their winter in Florida, they also like to visit WDW during one of the holidays or festivals....this year it's going to be F&WF, last year it was F&GF. They are originals to DVC...bought their first contract at OKW the first year it was available so the points were much more affordable then LOL!

I ams sure if you always stayed 2 br for 10 days instead of 5, 6 o7 . We go in the winter to Fla. I would probably book a few Easters or summer months at HH. I would also trade to Concierge and go to the Sagamore on Lake George every summer. Then I would use my points for a Disney cruis-

Sounds like I would need 2000 pts.!LOL!

Add-ons are addictive. It is a good thing these are deeded interests. Because if it they were not they could set up a monthly program like they do with their stock. We buy a set dollar amount of Disney stock each month directly from the company. Have the dividends reinvested that way as well. Now suppose you could subscribe to a similar program at DVC?

How do you spend 3500 points?????? Do you LIVE at WDW only in grand villas????? We just bought 150 points and are banking them into the 2007 use year. So we'll have 300 points to take a vacation. We'll probably spend 12 nights in WDW in a studio and 3 nights in VBR in a 1-bedroom.

I don't think that anyone should feel bad about their "modest" contracts. I mean, we bought into the lowest possible contract we could get.

Sure, 500 + points would be nice.....but, I know that there are a lot of families who only get to go to WDW as a "once in a lifetime" sort of thing. I'm just happy my parents bought into DVC and are going to will it to me when I am of legal age!!!!!!!

The DW and I bought 200 points in February after returning from a cruise. After getting back home we called up our sales person and added another 50. The DW worries that we have too many points, but my opinion is how could you ever have too many points!?!? Even if you're not able to use them all, you can always let friends or family use them. Way to go 1000 pt. club! Hope to join you someday if I can convince the DW.

Right now, we only have 400 points. But, we are thinking about buying a large contract at HHI. My question is that the dues are going to be in the $1900 range. So, with that said, is it better for us to just pay cash for the nights we stay and not buy? Please tell me the advantages of owning a large contact given the maintenance fees are higher with the larger contracts. Thanks.

This thread brings a :) to my face! I am glad that you all have been blessed in such a way to have 1000+ points. My husband and I just purchased our first 200 point contract 2 weeks ago. I would LOVE to retire at DW (although I don't like the humidity in the summer)! I am glad too that so many of you have wrriten about sharing your points with family and coworkers. I hope to be able to do the same thing now and in the future. I guess you can say I have an "Oprah" complex!! Meaning, I want to be able to give as much as I can to those I can, since I have been blessed with so much!

Right now, we only have 400 points. But, we are thinking about buying a large contract at HHI. My question is that the dues are going to be in the $1900 range. So, with that said, is it better for us to just pay cash for the nights we stay and not buy? Please tell me the advantages of owning a large contact given the maintenance fees are higher with the larger contracts. Thanks.

The maintenance fees are higher but you get the same relative value in a large contract as you do with smaller contracts. The concerns I have with large conracts is that they are likely to be harder to sell and you cannot split them if you wanted to reduce points or gift to children. I prefer to buy multiple contracts in the 100 to 300 range. I think that keeps them within the sweet spot of the market without getting so small that closing and sales costs become overly burdensome on a per point basis

I am curious about what the purpose of this thread is. :confused3

Maybe you all should lobby for your own "Club-1000" board?

And then the rest of us can belong to the "Sub-Par-Club" board. Or the "Bitty Board." Or whatever we want to call it.



Hey we own 225 points and never look down on those bloated 1000+ point owners.:lmao: We all work hard for our money and if they want to spend it on points so be it. Good on them. Why not have a discussion on what to do with all those points? Maybe they should start a poll and see how many people in the 1000+ club "wasted" their points on a cruise (someone else's words not mine) :lmao: How about finding out how many of those point misers actually slept five in a one bedroom?:rolleyes1

No need for envy; our money is the same colour as theirs. They are not DIS rockstars (tongue in cheek) and they go on waitlists like eveyone else and go poop everyday just like the rest of us.....Lighten UP!:happytv:

I have used all but 2 of ALL of our 2009 points...

Although we have 3 trips pending with those points... It's still sad to see zero points for 2007, zero points for 2008 and 2 points left in 2009 :guilty:

I wonder?

I have seen too many Richard Pryor / Superman movies. But that got me thinking. Hum, if we could get a few leftover DVC points here and there, just think we might be able to stay one night at a DVC property.

Hum, we do embroidered T-shirts, hats, and tote bags. We can not do any copyrighted Disney characters but could come up with something cool, "I love DVC", "My Nth trip to Disney World" "Disney Daddy" or just monograms or names, or a cool design.

Thoughts?

I think it's something like $5000 a year. I own 320 Vero Beach points--those raise the maintenance fees up significantly.
Vero = 320
BCV= 300
AKV= 250
OKW=510
Maybe someone will do the math for me to get the actual total since I'm not sure of the rate per point anymore.

$8 off AKV per point
$5 off BLT per point
7 day/6 night stay at BLT any dates in a 2 bedroom MK view plus Disney VIP fast passes for everyone registered for the stay, for every day.

The year before in 2007 they offered a free cruise in a balcony cabin Cat 6 for two. We took that for 250 AKV points. Plus like $700 in gift cards.

You got the equivalent of (X amount --how many?) BLT points for six nights in, say, Christmas week. Could you fill in the blank.. I'm too lazy to look it up.

That sounds like the deals they ran when they had the special DVC gathering in SoCal last year. Casey, the DVC infomercial girl made an appearance. I think for a huge add-on(400+) you got a Disney Adventure trip or a II exchange plus gift card and developer points.

11-10-2008, 07:12 AM

If you take the 6 night stay at Christmas it is worth about 500 points or so.

BTW, Can we get in on any secrets or strategies anyone has used in gaining these amounts? I mean other than saving and working hard while maintaining your everyday lifestyles...
I make a very good living as does DH- we have 5 kids 7 - 17 yrs old... I would love to have 200 for each of them as a wedding gift as they are older

Just curious, do you rent out some of the points to pay the MF`s? If not, I would think it`s a waste of money to have that many points, plus pay the giant fees every year. The MF`s alone for that many points would cost more than a trip every year, no? But I am a measley 200 point owner. Would love to have more someday.

You are right. Our yearly dues are about $6000, which would buy a trip every year and we would not have the initial investment cost. But we go multiple times and bring friends and we probably would not do that if we were paying cash each time. I will say that this year, for the first time, we have considered whether we might have too many points because health issues are keeping us from traveling for a while. We ended up renting out some points because we're not sure when we can next go to WDW. We also had a cash reservation at HHI that we had to cancel and I am really bummed about that. For now the hope that we will be able to use our DVC points again before too long is keeping us going!

I'm still "almost there" but we are reconsidering BLT. DH and I both love the decor of the 1-2 bedrooms. These incentives could be what will bring us over the top!

I know what you mean! We might pull the trigger this time which would put us on the list.

And just so you know, it's your fault!! We finally tried Vero Beach after all of your positive posts about it so now I need enough points to stay there too.

We just added on 60 at the VGC so that brings our total to 1200. I was not sure how to get us added to the list on the first page of this thread so I PM's JimC. Hopefully that is the right way to go about this but if not just let me know.

This is a good place to be...DVC heaven!!!:woohoo:

Congrats!

Thanks again. I would love your portfolio of resorts. We have OKW (which we love) VB (which will be a bear to sell) BCV, AKV and BLT.. We like/love VB but it is so easy to get in there now at 7 months, it is a shame to pay those high maintenance fees. Right now resales are going for less than what we paid to join the DVC in 1992, at the original OKW resort, and that was 17 years ago. I think VB is an anomoly in that it is the only contract we own that has actually gone down in price. Of course, any other timeshare --except DVC--- has gone down in price long before this recession.

I am thrilled to see the newly revised list. Now I can DH cold hard facts that I am NOT the only crazy DVC member with what he calls 'too many points'. Personally I have not hit my point ceiling yet so looking forward to the add ons still coming our way...Hawaii anyone??

We need to be removed from the list....

I sold 130 point BCV contract so that leaves us with 870 points.

The DVC reps told me on a recent DCL cruise that it will be awhile before points go on sale and that they will be expensive. Now we heard the same rumors about BLT, and although BLT is somewhat expensive, it is not off the charts. My guess is that the per point price will be about the same, but that the points required for a stay will be higher than the requirements at GCV. We're only going to buy enough points for a stay every 2-3 years, because we have Hilton Grand Vacations Club on the Big Island and will want to make a long enough trip to justify the flights from NJ. But I'll be happy to post a trip report. We're going to Hawaii August 2010, and I hope that some kind of visitor center will be open then.

I need to know exactly how you spend 3500 or so points a year. I'm not being nasty, I just need to know how you spend them. Grandvillas? Holiday? The winter months?

And a little under $20k in annual dues?!?!?!
