    So my Welk friends, I've been told by resale buyers that resale points will remain in seperase accounts. This sounds like a problem, HOWEVER: I have been told by owner services that an owner can borrow/trade points with other owners.
    The seemingly obvious thing to do would be to trade points between your own accounts to combine say 240k from one with 300k from another to get a large prime season unit in Tahoe or Cabo. Anyone ever do this or tried it?

    Interesting question. First, I find owners services to be highly reliable in what they tell you. So ord probably true. One the other hand, while we had three different contracts: one was a fixed week, one was a floating week, and the third was Platinum Points. So there was no possibility of combining anything. I'll be fascinated to hear if you can borrow and combine your own points!

    The one wrinkle that comes to mind is that you may be limited to a 60-day booking window. When I wanted to borrow points from another year, the 60-day window applied.

    They're customer service has drastically improved in the last two years. And the booking windows seem to have expanded. I was able to be one click away from reserving a week at Northstar the week before Thanksgiving when I was just looking around. Ive only got the one account now and prolly won't get another for a couple years but definitely a strong possibility as my family grows
