    If it helps, my deed was recorded on 5/19. Started calling on 5/27, got the member number and points on 5/29. I'd give it 6 business days then call in the afternoons to see if it's set up.

    That would be great if it was that quick. Can't wait to see if I'll be back to find availability in October or November.

    For contracts with banked points they do not last but a few days. Everything I have been interested in recently has been under contract within a few days. Not sure about stripped contracts.

    I had really slow sellers that also didn't read the closing instructions so docs had to go back and forth. I'll start calling DVC in a few days.

    Did you get your member number by mail or calling? If calling how many days after the deed was recorded did you start calling?

    Called and received my member number today exactly 90 days from initial offer. The points haven't loaded yet though any idea how long that typically takes?

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I'm not familiar enough with the boards to find the right place. If we buy a resale timeshare where the points start this September, would it be possible to apply those points to the vacation we already have planned in November? We are paying a rack room rate for a villa in Kidani. Thank you! We are debating over whether it would be worth almost twice the cost to buy direct or resale.

    Technically possible but highly unlikely you will find availability for November in September.

    We are first time DVC owners (100 points @ BCV) and were lucky to have sellers who were very prompt in returning their documents.

    Called dvc today and wouldn't look up if I have a member # yet. Said I have to receive letter and could take 14 days to months.
    Anyone having better luck, what options did you choose on phone? Reservations, etc.
