Default Point transfer for multiple use years

We are are currently a Sept use year at BLT and are considering a resale purchase at another resort for a Feb use year. Can you transfer points from one contract to another since they will be different member numbers?

Great tutorial, Mike, I was wondering how I was going to explain this to my son and DIL.

I am confused. We got three contracts and three different use years, Feb, June and Dec. On our VGC with a June use year we have 173 banked points and 180 coming. On our BLT with a Feb use year we have 100 bank points and the 100 points for the year. On our SSR with a Dec use year we have 25 for the year and 150 coming. The accounts are not linked. Ok, we want to take a vacation to the VGC in November of '15 that is going to use 260, we also want to take a vacation in March of '16 that needs 166 and in May of '16 for 135 points. How can I utilize my points to stay at the VGC with all the points I have?

Thank you for your help in advance.

For the November trip you are going to need to use the 11 month booking window so you will use your VGC contract, for the trips in May use the contract with the points that expire first DO NOT use the VGC contract you will need that for the 11 month booking window in november

I added a diagram to the first post in this thread to help explain things.

Default 1st - thanks Mike that helps...

but we have a Dec. contract with:
9 points from 2014 and 200 from 2015 and 200 from 2016 etc.

So if we are travelling in the summer of 2016, are we borrowing from 2016 since contract month is December?

And then can we use the 9 from 14', 200 from 15' and say 91 from 16' to use 300 total in summer of 16'?

And if so,
we could then use 109 from 16' and 191 from 17 for summer of 17'?

and then 9 from 17' and 200 from 18' and 91 from 18' for summer of 18'?

Am I correct or lost? We can only travel in the summer and it looks like we need 300 points each time.

First, the 2014 points will need to be banked ASAP if you want to use them in
the 2015 UY. The banking deadline is July 31. They will expire Nov 30 if you don't use or bank them.


Second, the summer of 2016 is in the 2015 UY. That means that you can use banked 2014 points, current 2015 points, and borrowed 2016 points then.

For the future, figure out the UY you want to travel in. By banking and borrowing, you can bring points into that UY. You can make reservations 11 months ahead of when you want to travel as long as you will have enough points at the time you want to stay. And keep a close eye on the banking deadline at the end of July.

You seem to understand the difference between UY and calendar year. That is the fundamental thing that will make a difference.

So the December contract date probably isn't good for me since we only travel in the summer?

Essentially we are going to have our points at Saratoga Springs and make a reservation there at the 11 month window and then when it is 7 months out, switch to somewhere else if open.

If it costs me 300 points to stay at Poly for say 10 nights, do I use those points at Saratoga first and then switch?
