What interesting replies. We have 3 contracts at BCV for 450 points - we love it there for ambiance, the pools, and location. We also have 200 points at Hilton Head - we have had many wonderful summer vacations there and bought the points for peace of mind in booking the popular summertime. We have absolutely magical vacations at WDW. We have borrowed points the past couple years so only had a handful of points for this year (a short stay at Vero Beach). So this year we are taking our RV to Fort Wilderness for 12 nights. Sigh - a couple months ago I couldn't stand it and waitlisted for 8 nights at the BCV, borrowing isn't that bad, is it? Not holding my breathe though as it is the first week in July. Sigh again.

We have one master contract and 4 small add-on contracts. The master is at OKW, bought in 1992. Two small add-ons at OKW purchased in 1995 & 1996. We then bought a 100pt add-on ( two 50-pt contracts) at BLT in 2009, just to be able to get a few nights in a theme park view 1 bdr in December for our annual pilgrimage. Total of 385 pts, which has always been sufficient for us and we typically have a few points to bank each year.

We recently purchased a house in Orlando, so I think our add-on days are done -- but we have no intention to sell. Will probably use points to go to VGC.

We bought based on "buy where you want to stay " and what parts of the family will be with us.
For trips with grand kids we have 660 pts.at BLT because MK is the center of attention.
For other trips we have 300 pts. at my favorite-BCV.

We have two contracts. 100 pts at VWL bought direct and a 60 pt resale contract at BCV. They are different use years because it was hard to find what we wanted on the resale market with the same UY as the direct contract. It hasn't been a big deal though. We just treat the contracts separately and bank/borrow to book each trip using only one contract. Then the next vacation we use the other contract. Has worked just fine so far!
