    I was speaking with my guide about a small add-on for one of the legacy resorts. Assumed it would be the $130pp advertised price. He said that for existing DVC members, a direct purchase would include a $7pp break, making the effective price $123.

    I hadn't seen this anywhere else. Has anyone else heard this? I haven't added on direct for several years.

    Yes, my guide also told me they were $7 off, along with BLT.

    I was just told all the sold out resorts were $7 off per point.

    "legacy" and "sold out" means they are not in current sales like aulani, VGF or AKV.

    Is there a minimum to get the incentive (other than the minimum add-on of 25)?

    I don't believe so, but many of the resorts still have waiting lists, depending on your use year.

    We were on a WL for BW pts at the $115 promotion and our guide called us about 3 weeks after the 6 month deadline and said the pts were now $130 with $7 discount per point if we bought 50. The smallest amount you can purchase direct is 25 pts - won't let you buy anything less that 25 because were were thinking about adding 15 points onto another contract but no.

    My guide didn't give me a minimum nbr of points as to when the $7 was effective....I may ask again. He still owes me a return call about a possible wait list for what I want. I imagine there is one, or he would have already been back to me to make a sale! I was hoping that much of the WLs had cleared now, after the March price increase. Also many may have dropped off since they weren't able to execute in the 6 month grace period.
