    My points for BCV came in I have one question though, my daughter will be the purchaser I am wondering what an associate means which is what I wiil be temporarily. when I pay it off which will be early next year we are transferring back in my name and she becomes the associate. Does the associate have the same perks except for the discounts not really sure what it means.

    An associate can book a reservation. You will find the specifics on the DVC Member website.

    Transferring title requires legal documents and a new title.

    Associates get no perks. No discounts, no member card, no discounted PAP. You can't go up to the Top of the World Lounge.

    i always thought of it as a convenience thing. i have been an associate on my grandparents membership for years and until he passed away recently my grandfather was on mine. i often made reservations for him.

    associates...i believe... are about access/ability to book but not ownership.

    I thought they eliminated associates to try and mess with Brokerage Rentals.

    They limited the number of accounts an individual can be an associate member on.

    They didn't eliminate associates they limited a person to being an associate on 4 memberships max.
