We are in Orlando at the moment (staying offsite boo!) and we have met with a guide about buying points, we always thought we would buy resale but as we are overseas we can buy direct with finance and the finance doesn't show on our credit score (big bonus for us as we want to move in a few years). Our friends bought last year and were 'given' free points when they bought their points. Our guide isn't working at the min so I spoke to a guy on the phone who really spun us a line, he first tried saying he didn't know what we were talking about, then that the offer finished last may and once I told him our friends didn't buy till September he said it was the end of September. He then said it was 10 free points for every 100 points, now our friends said it was more than that so I have no faith in him or what he told me at all. So what I basically want to know is, can you negotiate with the guide? If it was a case of getting extra points thrown in from Disney, we would probably buy direct for the ease. Plus we have a different sort of finance here in the uk, when we take out a loan we have to pay all of the interest back even if we pay the loan off early, which is different to the Disney finance where we would just pay for the interest we used (as we would certainly pay the loan off early). Sorry for such a long winded post, and thanks in advance for all of your help!
