    We are in ROFR on a 50 point VWL contract through Fidelity. They said I could pay my $1000 deposit/earnest money via credit card, so I did to get the points. When I received my statement I saw they charged me twice.

    I called and they researched and are now applying the full $2000 deposit to my purchase. This works better for me as I get more credit card points. It would have been bad had I not caught it.

    Just make sure you watch your statements if you pay in this manner.

    Thanks for the heads up. When I bought through them I used my debit linked to checking so that would have been quite a debit. Anyhow nice contract, was looking at that one for a while. Hope you pass. :shamrock::shamrock:

    Thanks! It matched our current resort and UY so I felt like it was fate. Disney has not exercised and ROFR on VWL for a long time so we are hoping they keep it that way.
