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.
We decided to buy direct too. I made my deposit yesterday and the points were in the account today!

meanwhile, I’m still waiting for my AKL resale points to load into the system even though we closed on that last month. Of course it’s the AKL ones that I need to book my next vacation.

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!
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.

we bought the direct points instead— which is more expensive but it doesn’t have any of the restrictions, which makes it a lot more attractive to us. We are planning Aulani for 2022 and now we have plenty of points to take the WHOLE family between the new points and my AKL ones without having to dip into 2023.

Now, the wait for the contract to close and the points to load to our account. I'm going to try and rent the 2020 points as they were banked from 2019 and expire at the end of May. Unfortunately, we can't schedule a trip between now and then.

Maybe Disney just made an end of the year push by taking a lot of SSR's in 2020.
