If you buy a DVC AP certificate and she doesn't have an ID with an address that matches the address on an ID whose name matches a DVC membership ID name, the certificate cannot be redeemed and (a cast member told me) cannot be returned (but I would hope they'd let you pay the additional amount to make it a normal AP?!?!).

We are in a similar situation, but a little different. My husband and I are resale members, so we are not eligible for the DVC AP promotion. My MIL and FIL are original owners. They are updating a title to include my husband's name, so he will get membership card. My ID address matches his ID address and his name will match on his ID and DVC membership card, so I can get a DVC AP on his membership once he receives his card (likely in February). His mom was able to purchase certificates for APs under her account at the promotional rate, but we can't redeem them until my husband has an actual membership card. If something went wrong, we could always add-on a 25 point direct contract to get membership cards for both of us, but that's spending a lot of money to save a little.

So, you have a few options if you want to get her a discounted AP:
1. Have her officially move in with your son so they have the same address.
2. Add her to your membership. ($250-500 closing depending on title agency).
3. Have your son add on a direct purchase of 25 points and put her name on that deed with his. As a direct purchase, she will receive a membership card.

Any of those options probably costs more than the savings of the DVC discount since it would only be 1 person 1 year before she's eligible anyway (assuming they will move in together no sooner or later than their wedding day).
I didn't think you could do a 25 point add on unless you were using the same names as the existing contract. My understanding is that you'd be creating a new membership and the normal minimums would apply. If I'm mistaken I'm sure someone will correct me

Now that you say this, I think you are correct. So down to only 2 options.
