Question re: online booking with transferred points

Hi all,

Does anyone know if you can see availability at 11 months if you only have transferred points for a resort? I will be wanting a hard-to-get room category at a resort I don't own, and am thinking that having transferred points for that resort might be the way to go--but only if I can see rooms at the 11 month window once the points are in my account.

That's a good question. I not sure, but I doubt it, because the points don't show up on your account. Hopefully someone with experience will let you know. Otherwise can you let us know at the 11 month period if it worked?

Edit: I just checked the online booking page on the MS website and it shows this:

You can't use transfered points to book online at any time frame. You HAVE to call MS to use transferred points. If you get transferred points, they DO retain the home resort booking advantage, but you will lose an hour because you have to call MS, while others can use online. Maybe with the website changes they will add the ability to use transferred points.

<sigh> I guess this won't work for me. I was really hoping to be able to view availability so I could be opportunistic about grabbing a room when it was available, since at 11 months our dates will be flexible.

I think the only time you see transferred points in your online account is if they are the same resort and UY as one of your own contracts. I own BWV, Oct UY points so there is already a place in my account that holds those points. If I transfer in BWV, Oct UY points they can just increase my existing point balance for the appropriate UY (Oct 2012, Oct 2013, etc). If I transfer in BWV points with an Apr UY or BLT points of whatever UY, there is no place in my account to add those points so the information about those transferred points is stored in some other way that MS can see but our online account at dvcmember.com cannot.

The exception to this as noted by the previous poster is IF you transfer in points from the same home resort and use year as one you own, then you will be able to see those points in your account and use them for online booking. I just did this when I transferred in BWV June use year accounts to my BWV June use year account.
