Renting points will almost always come out cheaper even when compared to value lodging. None of the DVC units are value but more oftern than not renting is as cheap or cheaper than paying rack rate even at value, and most of the time its’ just a cheap to rent compared to promotions. The only time Iive seen that I couldn’t beat the promotions was during a buy 4 and get 3 free and if even then it was still cheaper to rent other than value which was about the same.
Cheapest studio low season will run about $100. Rack rate for the same room is about $250 with tax. which would discount to $163 with 35% discount.
Really depends on where and when.
