I have gotten conflicting answers on this from MS, so thought I'd refer this question to some people who actually know how things like this work. I need ONE night in October. Of course, nothing is available at the resort I want (BCV). I cannot wait list the night because I have 24 points and the room costs 33 for the one night. So, I need to buy 9 one time points. I was told by one MS rep that I could book a different resort and waitlist the night at BCV with the stipulation the one night gets canceled and the points get put towards the one night at BCV (if the waitlist comes through). However, the confusion seems to be the points--right now I can book a room elsewhere but it's going to be 48 points so I'd have to buy 24. If my waitlist then comes through, do they simply apply the 24 one time points to the new reservation, take 9 from my 24 and then give me back 15 points? One MS rep told me no, that I'd lose the extra one time points? Didn't make sense. Another told me yesterday that I should get the points back? Also, how plausible is it that my waitlist would come through if MS has to manually cancel the one night elsewhere since I don't have the point to book automatically? Anybody have a waitlist with one time points come through like this for one night? Hope this isn't too confusing!
