Good for you, asking in advance of your cruise. I've seen threads where points bought while on the cruise were then questioned upon return home, and the cancllation deadline drew near.
I wouldn't purchase something of this magnitude without serious research..... hard for me to do while cruising.

We just cruised for spring break and wanted to add on a small number of points to what we already had. We got a $500 onboard credit. There were more incentives if you bought more points, but we knew what we needed going in to it so we stuck with the smaller contract.

We bought direct a few years ago and hadn't done any research. Not the smartest thing to do--I know. However, now that we've been members for a few years and are more educated about DVC than we were prior, we still bought direct. May still not be the smartest thing to do, but it is what we felt comfortable with. I think it is a personal decision and if you can afford it, do what you want. Now, if we were going to buy a large number of points again, I might buy resale. Basically, I'm no help at all.

From all I have been reading and looking at numbers, I think the next few trips we have scheduled I will rent points, should be about 50 for our next trip, and then in a few years, when we have the money saved up, we will buy resale. It seems that we can get 2x the number of points for the same price as buying direct.
I do still have one question about buying direct. If I was to buy direct at one of the "old" DVC resorts that contracts end in like 2041 or there abouts, do the new purchases end at that time or is it the length of the original contract and thius ending in 2063 or whatever.

Ends on the original end date.
Except for OKW which has some extended contracts out there for resale.

cseca is accurate. there is no benefit to buying direct except that OKW-2057 contracts can be rare in resales.

arent resale points only good at disney? not for trade through rbi on disney cruise lines? for some that may be a benefit. I am not a fan of being limited as to how I can use my points.

That is great for you!! I purchased my points with luxury money which I'm very happy to be in the position to have. I am very careful about spending and always have been that is just my nature. I don't think anyone wants to flame you. We are all free to make choices. It is just important that everyone has all the information so that can make the right choice for them whether it is through direct purchase or resale. I'm sure we will all equally enjoy our points. That is why we are here.

Sorry didn't finish I told my husband about how many people were Selling their timeshares we should see if Disney has the same thing. We didn't know anything about dvc until the cruise. But my question for the people that buy direct is have you used it for a cruise? What does it give you. Everybody keeps telling me is that it's not worth it. So why buy direct?

Hmm, first time I've heard of that. Guess you really do learn something new every day. Now, off to reserve my spot!

I was able to purchase our two contracts with cash and could have afforded direct prices. But beyond the fact that paying double made it nearly impossible to see any sort of savings on our accommodations, we also knew that all that extra cash would pay for a lot of flights to Orlando and quite a few years of annual passes. Different strokes, I guess.
