FYI, you can only do this if you are an existing member and they must be same UY as existing contract. New Members must buy 150 points as a 1st purchase.
To clarify, does it matter if my only contract is via resale? Im an existing member via resale, then I begin to acquire small contracts with the same UY as my original resale contract?

You are now deemed a member so can buy direct at 'Existing Member' prices.
Ok great! Another question, is blue card 150 or 175pts currently? We have 125pts, so if I’m understanding correctly we could buy 25-50pts direct and that would give us all the blue card benefits? Thanks for your patience and insight!

You currently need 150 points direct for the blue card. If your current 125 points are from resale, you'll need to purchase another 150 points direct from Disney to get the blue card benefits.

Since you are an existing member, Disney won't require you to purchase the 150 points in one go. You could "add-on" with three separate direct purchases of 50 points, for example. (I'm not sure what happens if Disney raises the "blue card" direct minimum point requirement in the future though.)

Edit: If your current 125 points are direct, I think adding on the 25 points direct from Disney should get you there.

To anyone that may know:

If you are an existing member and you are waiting for Disney to add the new contract (same use year) to your Member ID, does it just show up on the account automatically or will I get the 2 emails with the club ID/activation code? Thanks

You get a "Welcome Home to DVC" email from them when the contract is loaded onto your account. The only email I got was the Club ID one and then after waiting 24 hours, I messaged them via chat to get the points loaded. Of course, you can wait it out that part as well. I am just impatient.

I haven't always gotten an email when a new contract with the same UY has been loaded. I did get one when I bought a contract with a difference UY at a different resort.

I did not get an email when my new contract (same resort, same use year) loaded. I just happened to notice it show up on my dashboard one day.

Okay, cool. This was what I was expecting as it didn't make sense I would have to activate anything given the UY. Thank you, guys.
