No. Just responding with my thoughts on what I was told. I didn't know it would be deemed "an argument".
Am I missing something about what I was told about the mega renter just pushing his points off to the future? Did I misinterpret what it means that they were shut down? Was it only a temporary suspension but they'd be able to rent to their heart's content in the future?
I'm sincerely puzzled.
The point about moving points forward is that it reduces the owner's risk (nothing to do with suspensions). That applies to moving points several ways.
One, moving to a future year. I rarely had to do this -- 2020 was an obvious exception. There were at least a couple of years when the number of points at year end didn't justify paying the fee to move them to the next year.
Two, moving to later in the same use year. 2A -- cancelling a reservation fifteen days before check-in, recover the points, and book a new reservation. 2B -- using the much-discussed "cancel and re-book" procedure. Using "cancel and re-book" just for my Bonnet Creek spring break reservations would generate 1 million to 1.5 million points that I could use for summer or holiday weeks. I did the same thing for Bike Week at Daytona, although demand for that week tapered off the last three or four years and I ended up canceling more reservations than I rented.
I had a lot of repeat renters whom I came to know fairly well. They constituted at least half of my rentals. For these folks, I didn't use market pricing. I used "cost plus" pricing, a formula that resulted in a much lower price. A week at market price might have been listed for $1,200. My regulars got it for $450 or $500. I was not in the business to make money. I was in the business not to lose money. (I failed at being a wannabe slumlord.)
Also, I did a lot of renting through TUG's Last Minute Rentals, which had a cap of $100/night at the time.
