    I hear you! Our sales rep said there was no rhyme or reason, except maybe banked points. All different use years, 5 different resorts and various prices. One of the Bay Lake contracts they bought was at 96! However, keep positive, he said they had over 30 approved over the last few weeks.

    Sounds like anything under 60 is getting taken back. We are going to try another one, SSR, 225, 3 banked pts. Then nothing till June 2014, full pts. from then on. $65 pt. I think that might be a little high since no pts. for a year but not sure if waiting will result in the price dropping?

    I really like Sharon from the few times she and I "spoke" via email or on the phone, but I don't think Fidelity's support is as good as other places (specifically TSS).

    You're right that no news is often good news, but I put an email into Jason at TSS just to make sure.

    Jason got back to me within about 5 minutes (this is the norm; so impressed) and said my contracts aren't on the list.

    Don't get me wrong I like fidelity so far too. I just know they probably handle the same volume of sales with half the staff of the TSS so you have to be patient. So far though my dealings with them have been quick given that I'm in Hawaii and they are in Florida. My contract was negotiated and submitted to rofr within a week of being offered and this was when.Sharon was on vacation and their contracts person was sick.

    weren't the 15 contracts only from TSS that were taken? that's what I'm thinking or how I read it anyway. Would they know if any were taken from other agencies?

    I'm guessing they only know what they had taken, so there are probably others from other resalers.

    Fidelity knewROFR Monday and said several were taken 3 BWV's that I know of!

    Now I am not sure what to do we just put in a full price offer on 350 point BWV 60.00 PP and it comes with 654 points on June 1st!

    Of course I still am not sure what is going on with the sellers since they told Fidelity in a email (when told about the sale) that they would call her Monday and that they were away. She indicated sellers remorse a possibility (?). Since the contracts are not written I am wonder if I should go in around 62.00 - although we are at the tip top of what we wanted to spend since we were in the market for 200 - 250 points. If this goes through I will sell my other SSR contract and stick with BLT and BWV, still at the max budget! Just not sure what to do.......:confused:

    Wow! That was quick. We went to ROFR on the 19th. I guess no news is good for now.

    Do you think that having currently available points is what is making Disney take contracts?
    Our contract went to Disney on 3/13 and we still haven't heard. We won't have any available points until August so I'm trying to stay optimistic...

    Mine went to Disney on 3/8 and still no news per Scot at TSS. Hoping no news is good news. He said they usually hear on Tuesdays, so we'll see what happens next week.

    Correct. Jerry said it was 15 of their contracts. Just as an aside, I think TSS has been fantastic to deal with. If Jerry isn't there, anyone will take the call and help.

    I called TSS today to see what BWV was passing at since I am in the process of buying a contract (offered full price considering more) and I was told just today they found out there were a few BWV taken one at 64.00PP, 2 contracts at 69.00 each, and 1 for 66.00.:scared1:

    We did not go through the TTS, but we have offered $96 for BLT. It's been just a bit more than 2 weeks since ours was sent. I am concerned. We have a call into our broker.

    Wanted to update our info. We had to re-negotiate due to the fact that there were not as many banked points as there was in the listing. Our new info is 160 points, Dec UY, 37 2011 points, 160 2012 and forward. seller pays MF and closing. $59.38 per point (originally $68.75 with 160 2011 points) I was very confident with our original offer, semi- confident with our second offer until I read this thread. Was submitted to Disney March 27. keeping my fingers crossed.
