    I know. Both times we bought direct we got those "extra" points. We felt like they were giving them to us. :rotfl: Have since figured out they "gave" us nothing we didn't pay for.....just saved the MFs on nearly a year's worth of points.

    Initial purchase was in late Sept so we did owe a few months' MFs because we have a Feb UY. When we added on it was after Thanksgiving the next year. We had a bit of a mix-up and had to disregard the first set of papers. By the time everything was settled we really only owed a month's dues for those year's points. 310 BLT points that we got to use without paying most of the dues on them.

    But you paid a whole lot more per point for the direct points that the member fees you didn't pay don't count for much.

    This is true, if we had bought resale at an older resort. But when we bought BLT there were no resale contracts and when we added on the few resale contracts were nearly the same as we paid. No closing costs. I still feel like we saved something. :confused3
