Is it possible to be a platinum member on a resale at Welk?

I just went to the developer presentation and signed on the dotted line for 1 week 1bdrm for 14,000 with platinum benefits. After reading here on TUG, I plan to rescind tomorrow and look for a Welk unit resale. Will Welk honor platinum for resale units or not?

As far as I know, Welk does not discriminate against owners who buy points resale. You are buying into a Welk Resorts Platinum Owners Association points system that allows you to reserve (use your points) at any of the eligible Welk resorts (San Diego, Branson, etc). You are not getting title to a particular unit per se like in the older Welk Resort units, you are buying enough annual points from the Association to reserve that particular size unit each year. Each size unit has a different point value.

The most important thing to keep in mind is the number of points you receive every year or EOY. This in turn gives you your unit size that you can reserve (1BR, 1BR Deluxe, 2BR etc.). For example, I own 300,000 annual points which entitles me to a 2BR lockoff unit every year.

The offer sheet that you signed, I imagine, was for a 1BR EOY for the $14,000. Correct?

Good luck in your search.

The sales manager said that if we didn't buy the platinum deal that day if we came back we could not buy the platinum deal never!

Is that true?
