Maybe I've missed something, but aren't you going to need a 2 bedroom villa very soon?
Do you need the 11 month window at BLT to get what you want for the time you want? If so, my advice is to stay with BLT and really look at buying direct. You are only buying 50 points so the difference in price (dues will be the same no matter how you buy) gets you the points quickly and you want them for 2014. 11 month windows for 2014 trips start opening in February, 2013 less than 3 months away.
If you get a different resort, you will be booking part of your 2 bedroom trip at 7 months, doing a split stay or alternating resorts.
If you decide to alternate by banking and borrowing, will a 50 point contract get you the villa size and length of trip you prefer? And if you are going to bank and borrow, chances are good that you will have a few leftover points that you cannot use. Will you be OK with letting them expire unused?
Given what you say you want to do with the extra points, my advice is to buy BLT so you can consistently book the 2 bedrooms there during the home resort priority booking period. For the last minutes trips, home resort won't matter (except for the dues). Is the few hundred $$ you might save on 50 points at SSR vs BLT worth it? I wonder. Wouldn't be for me.
