Default 1 question about using DVC points

1- If I have contracts for 95 points OKW and 68 points AKL for a total of 163 points. Both contracts were purchased direct sale through Disney. What if I purchase a Disney resale after market for say 100 points. Resort doesn't matter for my question. Would I be able to use those 100 points plus my 163 points for a total of 263 to say book RCI a Disney adventure trip, a cruise, or club level at say BCV?

I also get that using points for cruises and club level rooms is not a good use for point value just curious if it can be done that is all.

Thank you,

Rob

Resale points can still be used for RCI but not for any of the other exchanges that you list. So you'd have 163 points for the Disney collection exchanges and 263 points that could be used thru RCI.

Think of it as 2 buckets.

Direct Bucket - Pretend these points are red and can be used for anything.
Resale Bucket - Pretend these points are blue and all restrictions apply.

If you combine the red points and blue points in one bucket, you can still see the difference in their colors. By putting them together the colors don't change.

Direct can be used like Resale, but not the other way around.

Feel free to correct me if my bucket analogy is wrong!!!

Can use direct but not resale.

For cruises you are always better off renting ALL points and paying cash.
