Banking and borrowing points

Still investigating purchasing DVC. I understand you can bank points for following year. Let's say I have Jan. use year. So I bank my points. I decide to visit the following year in May. I make my reservations at the 11 month mark, can I borrow points from the next year?? I am confused about when that 3rd year of points become available. Can help me understand this? Thanks!! I only see doing this if taking extended family.

For purposes of your example, yes, you can borrow. Note that there is no January use year.

Point use is based on the time of the stay. You can book this years points into next year, and borrow from the following year so you have three years of points available for that one reservation.

so you get pts for feb 2014 and you decide to bank them. now they are valid for stays from feb 1, 2015 to jan 31, 2016.

starting in june 2014 (11 months out), you can book may 2015 with those banked 2014 UY pts + current 2015 UY pts (please note carefully that the pts are current based on the dates of the stay) + borrowed 2016 UY pts (if you need more to complete the reservation).

**remember that use year has nothing at all to do with when you can book. you can book your home resort at 11 months out.

so whether your UY was feb or dec, you can call in june 2014 to book may 2015. 11 months is always 11 months.**

always start by looking at what UY your stay takes place in. then you know you can use those current UY pts + banked UY pts from the year before (if you have any) + borrowed UY pts from the year after (if needed).

let's also look at what happens with a dec UY:

like i said above, start with what UY your stay takes place in - so for a may 2015 stay, you would still be within your dec 2014 UY.

starting in june 2014 (11 months out), you can book may 2015 with current 2014 UY pts + banked 2013 UY pts (if any) + borrowed 2015 UY pts (if you need more to complete the reservation).

you can still use 3 years worth of pts, but if you are thinking in terms of calendar years, you will wind up confused...
