When I took the tour last year, I think the 2 bdrm plat 9600 points were around 40K.

When we purchased in 2003, we traded in our Flamingo (purchased resale) and purchase an additional unit to get Elite status. I negotiated for a while and got a discount off the price instead of taking an incentive in points. The incentive was 7000 points. I received $3000 discount instead of the incentive.I also got an additional discount off for multi units. It worked out pretty well for us. You get better negotiating powers through the call center.

Emi, what kind of trade-in value did HGVC give you for your resale Flamingo unit? Developer price at that time (or perhaps the developer price the original purchaser of your unit paid?)

How do they figure out what to offer as a trade-in price?

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.

We received $15700 for the Flamingo Platinum (7000 pts). I'm not sure what the price was on the last day of sale at the Flamingo. We toured HGVC at Las Vegas Hilton when they opened in late 1999 and we were told the grand opening price was $16000. Flamingo was sold out at that time. I think $15700 was a fair equity.

We also own Marriotts and when I asked if I can trade in a resale, I was told I can but they will only give me what I paid on resale. I would have to present the documents to prove the price. In comparison, HGVC is pretty generous.

That's interesting - so it sounds like they offer the developer price from the time of purchase. That is pretty generous for someone interested in buying more points from the developer..
