While in Las Vegas last August, they were offering to give me the original sales price of my 4800 pts resale toward 7000 points. I didn't bite so we'll never know whether they would have in the end. However, if I wanted another 2200 points or needed official points toward elite status like Emi, I probably would have taken their offer. Now whether I could have negotiate another $3000 off is another question
But then again, Waikoloa is a lot more expensive than Las Vegas.
PS. Sometime ago, the HGVC web site's loan summary tab had the original finance information so I saw the original sale price! Of course, it's fixed now so it only shows the original purchase date. That's how I knew what they offered was the original price.
