Earning My Ears

Has anyone brought direct from home? How did it go and what can you expect? Do they give you a hard time if your looking for the 100 point min?
We purchased our contract from home (just last month) and our guide was also Don. Maybe the same one? We had the same experience. It was very, very easy.We bought our first contract from home, having never been through a tour (though spent a lot of time researching and crunching the numbers). Our guide, Don, was helpful in every way possible. Any info I needed, sent instantly. He was honest, didn't try to pull wool over our eyes or anything of the sort. We purchased when the minimum was 75 (purchased 80). Don didn't push back at all or try to upsell.
For the most part, if you go in knowing what you want to purchase, you get connected with a guide, let them know what you want (resort/points/UY) and then from there they just give you the pricing info. If you like, pay or set up financing. Only issue you could run into is if you're requesting points from an already "sold out" resort. You may have to go onto a waiting list if the amount of points/UY is not available.
We paid cash up front so he took my credit card info and we were all set.
Welcome package and documents came about 3 days later through FedEx. Signed and sent back in.
From this point, we never really got confirmation when our contract closed, but about a month after we sent in our paperwork, my wife and I got our blue cards and a nice welcome home 8x10.
We recently purchased from home and had the same experience as others mentioned. We did tons of research so we pretty much knew what we wanted. Our guide (David) was fantastic and tailored the approach to us based on what we needed to know. He covered the basics for us and gave us the details we needed. Later that day we gave the go-ahead and paid our deposit (are financing it until end of year when I will pay it off). Our package arrived. If you have questions with the paperwork, they have a special set of cast members who can explain everything if needed. We signed and sent them back. Next, we were handed over to a fantastic guy in member services who booked our welcome home trip. The last step was to speak with a cast member to go over all of the details with membership. We found this very helpful since it have us a lot of information and some strategies on how and when to book.Has anyone brought direct from home? How did it go and what can you expect?
