All of my contracts are resale. Some are “blue card eligible” and only one has the post 1/19 restrictions. Absolutely no regrets. I purchased a fully loaded VGF contract in 2017 (Dec 2016 UY) with banked 2015 points. I paid $10 less per point than what the sellers had paid in 2014 and almost $40 under what the direct price was at the time.Question is in the title
Any owners now regret buying direct over resale, or vice versa?
What have you learned and what wisdom can you blanket us newbies with?!
I purchased all 500 of my points direct and I don't regret it. I paid $97/ppt for 200 points at BLT in 2009. Then, I added on 300 points at CCV (direct) last year. I paid $163/ppt. Resale contracts, only a year later, are around $155. By buying direct, I could break it into 2x150 point contracts in my choice of use year and get the points right away. The whole process from deciding to buy to signing was about 1 hour. The points were in my account a couple of days later.Why would you continue to buy direct when you already had the perks from your initial contact(s)?
I assumed they meant when it was in it's active sales. At one point the VGC direct points were down in the $80's with incentives. With resale at $190 or higher for small contracts? That could cause some regret.Why would you continue to buy direct when you already had the perks from your initial contact(s)?
