There is a thread with a list of those that have 1000+ points. Very interesting to read. http://www.disboards.com/showthread....highlight=1000 With our new contract we will have 375 points (200 OKW, 75 HH and now 100 AKV)...long way off from 1000. I used to want 300, now I want 450 (def want to add to our HH). That should be enough for us.

Thanks for the link. It will prove to be interesting reading.
I am just getting this first contract and am already watching the resale pages carefully for those great deals!

Oh lovin'fl- there's never enough!
I once thought 150 was enough. With my latest add-on- I'm at 660 now. And I'm still itching to add more!

BLT 200 pts (Dec UY). 160 pts today, 400 available Dec 13, 200 thereafter, $95/pt

Will be interesting to see if this is a new trend or an anomaly
Wow...so sorry to hear that! I am very surprised that was taken...like you said will be interesting to watch the trend. Good luck on your next one!

Yes, it was definitely a weird week in ROFR land. A couple of SSR contracts bought back; now a BLT.

Meanwhile my VGC passed at $90, which I still can't get over.

$68/pt
Buyer to pay Fidelity fee and closing
Seller to pay full 2013 dues

Good luck to everyone!
Well, we found out this morning that Disney took our BCV contract. I'm so sad about it! It was the only good contract with a June U/Y, so now I'm back to square one with no other options right now.
The one time I've been mad at Disney...

Sorry for your loss, wishing you better luck on the next one.

FYI everyone, I just passed this week on 210 Pts at BCV for $68, but the contract was somewhat stripped with only 42 pts for 2013 before going back to 210 for 2014 and on. So if there is any logic to what gets ROFR'ed at BCV it would appear the line is somewhere between $68 loaded and $68 stripped. I also paid 2013 dues on only the 42 pts left as opposed to you that got the seller to pay them.

My use year was Feb in case that has any bearing on this and also I did not go through Fidelity, so no Fidelity Fee.

Well that stinks! Good luck with the next one. I'm thinking it is that June UY. They must have buyers that want June.....

Sorry to hear you lost your deal- Such an awesome contract for BCV unfortunately Disney seems to be snatching up the Good ones

I know people are sometimes told when buying direct that they should feel special about getting last year's points, but do they ever sell stripped contracts direct?

* I think you also have to exclude a situation like unextended OKW, where they are clearly being aggressive with ROFR for other reasons, like to extend the contracts.

We offered $52.50 on a VWL 150 point contract with UY October. Asking price was $55. 40 points coming in 2014, and 150 in 2015. ROFR'd.

Probably should have just paid the $55. Oh well.
Well, that shoots down my theory that stripped contracts are safer.

Question

So now that Disney has taken our BCV contract and there are no other June U/Y contracts out there, I have a question.

Are there real issues with having two use years? If our BLT June U/Y is for the same Christmas trip every year, but we need BCV points for a late August trip every year, would we really need to stay with June U/Y? What are the risks if we didn't?

Thanks for any advice!

I got a 150 Oct U/Y BCV contract for $60 which closed ealy Sept. Contract was stipped until 2013 so this oct I finally have full points coming in.

I guess I can count my lucky stars it passed.


Mom23wildbpys --- so sorry your gor ROFRed. That really stinks.

God, that stinks, so sorry to hear.

At that price I am now convinced that they are hunting Dec UY. I didn't hear yet and we went the same day.
