Did your new DVC premium annual pass make you go broke?
 
Please let me explain......now that my DW has our new premium pass....she says that EVERYTHING is on sale!!!! But honey, it's 20% off... :-)

We bought tons of stuff on this trip.....but seriously ... We saved a ton of money as well..... As most of the items we bought, we would have purchased anyway.

How about you?

We had two trips planned next year. Thanks to the PAP's the kids and I are making an extra week long trip! DH is going to stay home to work, so he can buy our air fare :lmao:

I took it a step farther.....
Decided we needed to make our trip in June extra long :cool1:
Which required more points than I had :eek:
So, I just added on :woohoo:

So, the "huge" savings on my passes cost me several thousand in the end :rolleyes1

I have no doubt they knew they would be getting their money back several times over when they made this deal. I can't wait to "save" more money with my PAP next year :cool1:

We wil get 14 nights out of our PAP's that we will renew next month (at the promotional price:woohoo:). We love the 20% discount! We have used it to buy some of the pricey collectibles that we otherwise may not purchase. . . so yes, we are going broke!:sad2:

We hadn't been back in almost a year and a half (last trip was a GV at OKW for seven nights and used up a lot of points). So we had a F&W trip for us, plus the guys wanted to run the half marathon in January, so the PAP came in handy. But we really didn't buy much junk- just two new umbrellas because the others were broken and a couple of shirts at OKW. We really don't need any more junk.

I feel a whole lot better about paying 80% the price of junk rather than 100% :rotfl2:

They knew what they were doing when they waved those PAPs at us and emptied every ride into a gift shop. :yoda:

DVC/Disney math at it's very best.. it is rational but only to other members!

We bought a lot with our PAPs the last time we had them. We APs during our December 2011 trip & still bought more. June 2013 we will have PAPs again. I am sure we will buy again!

Our boys even said to DH on our last trip: "Dad, you get 20% off, so just buy it"!
Trying to figure out how we can squeeze in 2 more trips before they expire in October. :)

We did buy a lot of things we wouldn't typically, needless to say we got a lot of Christmas shopping done!

hidingmickey 11-20-2012 09:08 AM

I can wait to save, uh spend, uh save! December trip is 13 days, may trip will be 12 days (with a 3 night cruise thrown in -do we get a discount on things on the cruise too?), then another 12-14 day trip in Oct! Can't wait!

Oh and is there a food discount with the card? Or just when you buy TIW? Can you tell we haven't used it yet ;)

DougEMG 11-20-2012 12:18 PM

We've got three trips planned for our PAP, so I can only imagine all the stuff we'll end up buying now that everything is "such a good deal" at 20% off.

Jenn 11-21-2012 05:20 PM

Well we weren't even gonna buy annual passes until we saw the deal! So it's costing me about $1700 for 4 annuals! Too good to pass up!
