    I am really having problems understanding the banking system, I just cannot get my head around it.:confused3

    My use month is September and we have not used last September 2009-2010 points yet. I think I understand that I need to bank my points in April (i.e. now eek) for use after the following September.

    My question is, if I bank my points now, what if I decide I really can afford a trip to Disney in either July or August, will I be able to use my banked points?

    Thanks for any help

    Hi,

    My understanding is that banking (and borrowing for that matter) are final transactions. If you were to bank your points into the next use year starting Sept 2010 they would be there permanently, they can't be borrowed back into 2009-2010 or banked again. You would always have the option of borrowing from 2010-2011 if you did decide to go this year.

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Thanks Tom, am I right in thinking that I have to bank my points now, or lose some of them anyway?

    From the DVC members site:
    Which I think means that since you, like myself, have a September UY yes you'll need to bank before the end of April.

    Yes, Tina, you would need to bank your 2009-2010 points by 30th April 2010 and those points would then need to be used by no later than 31st August 2011.

    If you decided you could afford a holiday, you would have the option of borrowing 2010-2011 points but don't forget that banking and borrowing are final transactions and so if you borrowed points and then couldn't go, you would have to use them by August 31st this year.
