I need help/advice, and know this is the best place to get it! Here's the situation: We own at BLT and are planning to make another purchase via resale, which would allow us to pick our use year. We are considering either BCV or BWV (and that decision is the subject for another thread, another time!). Our current contract has a September Use Year, which we didn't think really made any difference until later and now I understand that this is the WORST possible Use Year for us, as we like to travel the last two weeks of August. DOH! Luckily we haven't had to cancel a trip, but you never know! So now that we are looking to purchase a second contract, should we go to a different Use Year (May/June)? That would put us at two resorts and two Use Years. I am good with a spreadsheet, so hopefully should be able to keep track of things, but it would add a layer of complexity. Thoughts? Advice? Also, I have read a few things about booking with two Use Years that I am confused about and hope someone can help. I must be missing something. My understanding (please let me know if wrong!): At 11 months you can book at your home resort using only the points available at that resort (including any banked, current, borrowed, but only for that resort). I think I'm good with that. What I am confused about is what to do at the 7 month mark. What's the deal with transferring? Why would you need to? Let's say I own points at both BLT and BCV. If I call to book at BLT at 11 months out (booking with only BLT points), at the 7-month mark can't I call and try to add consecutive nights to that reservation (if available) by using my BCV points? Why would I need to transfer points to do this? Is the concern that they would be separate bookings and might have to change rooms? Can't they link the reservations to try to avoid this? I am confused on the whole transferring thing, I think. Thanks for any replies!
