When I purchased years ago they offered me $1500 rebate off the price.
I think it's their way of recording a sale for the full price without having to reflect the concessions they are giving to the buyers. It makes the product appear more valuable than it is. ;)

I don't think it's anything new. When they are trying to move either new or stagnant inventory they offer incentives. :)

There has been some type of incentive on direct purchase for as long as I have been aware of DVC. When I bought, they said the price per point (VGC) was $112. but that I would get a "special limited" discount of $15. per point.

BLT is not completly sold out. Mainly because DVD doesn't want it to. They need a jewel to draw you in, and then try an sell you on a more affordable option (SSR,AKV). I believe they have something like 2% of the points still available for sale at a ridiculous $160/pt if you really want it, but they're not going to discount it. I think once the Grand Floridian goes on sale, then they'll let BLT sell out.
