I know I'm new to TUG and TUG BBS but we've been rolling DVC around in our heads ever since we got back from our last vacation. We have some questions about direct vs resale in relation to how you can use resale points. Our most likely scenario would be to buy a bulk of our points resale (We would like to purchase at BWV or BCV but the downside to this would be the shorter contract therefore the shorter available time to enjoy our home resort) then add on 25-50 points direct from DVC to one of the newer resorts, Aulani most likely since Hawaii would be a common secondary destination as well. Talk to me about how I can use the resale points vs how the direct points can be used? Since we would be members in our own right after getting direct points would we be able to pull from the pool of our entire points to book cruises or use in the RCI exchanges? I'm a little confused in how this all works together. We would want to enjoy our vacation time for as long as possible without having to re-purchase a longer contract to continue the fun down the road. Thanks!
