I am now in the process of purchasing another loaded 150 SSR, this time for $80 a point. I am not a good haggler, but when I saw the loaded contract I decided to jump. I also decided to sell my now stripped 25 pt contract. Since all the contracts looked stripped I thought why not and listed it for $100 a point. Listed it this morning and it was sold by 10:30 full asking price. WOW! I know I probably overpaid for the new contract but thought it would be months before I sold the 25 point one.
Wow!! You sold a stripped AKV 25 point contract for $100 PP? And you bought it loaded for $85 PP? That's ridiculous! Congrats. I'm thinking about buying a few low pt contracts at VGF direct and turning them if its worth it in a few yrs.

I guess some one was in a real hurry to get the Great deal.

2. I had a second contract sent off to Disney to start the ROFR process. VGC, 160 points, $106/pt, only 2014 points available (i.e. stripped). This works fine for us because we don't need any points before 2014/2015 anyway. And I would guess that it helps it get through ROFR.

We're on the west coast, and it seemed like having some VGC points would be a good add-on. But then I'm done, I swear! I can quit any time!
What day did you close? We closed on May 30th and I'm wondering how close we are to getting our membership#.

You're an existing member, right? Have the points shown up on your online member account (if so...when?)? I hope they have loaded the points by now.

We closed Monday the 3rd, so it was faster than I expected. I think our title company got them the docs that day. Some other title companies maybe aren't as fast?

You closed on June 3rd and already had your member info and account set up yesterday? (Did you get your info in the mail?)

What date was your deed recorded on the Orange County website?

I closed on the same day and was told by Fidelity that it would take 2 to 4 weeks to get my info from Disney. Seems like this process has taken forever. It's actually been 70 days.

Yes, it surprised me too. I haven't gotten anything in the mail. I was calling to ask a question about something else and a very friendly CM gave me my member number after asking for a bunch of identifying info. This is after I'd been calling every few days to try to wheedle the number out of someone and been rebuffed at every turn, so I'd just given up. According to that same CM, our packet has been sent out, but I haven't seen it yet.

Our deed was recorded on the 4th. Have you checked for your deed yet?

Just the main number. I spoke to a Member Admin CM early on, who verified that they'd received the deed and said it would be about 2 weeks to get it into the system, and then I'd need to wait for mail to come.

At some point last week, they changed the phone system so you can't reach Member Admin directly; they route you to a Member Services CM first to make sure you really need to talk to a Member Admin person. I guess Member Admin was getting swamped with calls from people who didn't actually need to talk to them. A few times I did talk to MS people to ask questions, and mostly they answered them and would look up my name to see if the account was created, which it wasn't. Sometimes they wouldn't talk to me because I didn't have a member number. Usually I just called back and the next CM would be more willing to answer general questions.

Anyway, on the 11th I called to ask a question about titling, because I was making an offer on another contract and I wanted to make sure I knew what the requirements were for both contracts to be on the same account. The member services person looked up my account, said I was in the system but she couldn't give me my member number because they didn't have any other non-public information about me (my SSN, to be specific), but she transferred me to member administration, who answered that question about the titling and also verified that I was in the system and my packet either had gone out or would go out the next day. Since I knew I was in the system, I called back to see if another CM would look me up, and I got the same response - yes, I was in the system, but no, they couldn't give out my member number unless I had a SSN listed. (Which reminds me - I need to call and give them my SSN so if I ever am in a situation where I don't have my member number I can get it back. ) So at that point I gave up and figured I'd just need to wait for the mail.

But I called yesterday about something else, and the CM volunteered to give me my member number, after verifying a bunch of information on the account. I wouldn't count on getting another CM to do the same.

Well I got this email from Fidelity just now:

Good News!

Disney has waived their Right of First Refusal on your BoardWalk Villas purchase and you should be receiving closing documents from the title company in 2-3 weeks.

Then got a phone call telling me that they made a mistake and the contract was ROFR'd, not waived. Unbelievable! That's strike 2 for me and running out of patience. Here are the details:

BWV 210 points, August UY - $70/pt, 420 points on 8/1/13 (210 banked from 2012) all pts forward, buyer pays closing costs, maint & admin fee.

Are you serious???? I would be furious! TTS and Magic Vacation Title are the way to go. At some point the customer service is worth the extra cost per point.
