We decided to buy direct too. I made my deposit yesterday and the points were in the account today!We just bought some points direct. Inventory is very very low out there, especially for our UY. Granted, it’s pricey, and we’ve always previously bought resale, but the ease and convenience are great. I’d say it was about 5 or 6 hours from the time I called DVC to make the purchase to the time they were loaded into our account on the website. Wow. Our digital white card changed immediately to blue, which was nice! Though it’s not particularly logical, or practical either, I started to feel that we were missing some of the magic without the blue card.
I spoke to the agent and they’re not budging. He said that the offer I sent seemed like a no brainer to him but explained why they’re stuck at that price.Yes! That’s the one! It was the first ever Aug UY resale (that I’ve seen), and I was pretty stoked. But alas, they aren’t really budging on that crazy price.
Had we entertained the thought of that many points back during the summer incentive, I would’ve purchased direct for sure!! Good luck to you in whatever you decide!
Maybe Disney just made an end of the year push by taking a lot of SSR's in 2020.macman123---$105-$11210-100-SSR-Aug-100/20, 100/21, 100/22- sent 12/20 - passed 1/13
