Revised DVC Incentives


#1

The incentives for new members to purchase and for existing members to add-on has changed.

The previous developer points incentives for BLT/AKV have been replaced with a free cruise on Disney Cruise Line:

[ul]
[li]Add on 100 points: a 3 night cruise for 4 people (160 for new members)
[/li][li]Add on 125 points: a 4 night cruise for 4 people (200 for new members)
[/li][li]Add on 200 points: a 7 night cruise for 4 people (270 for new members) [/ul]
[/li]
Details are available HERE.

Great incentives, too bad I’m not in the position to add more points.


#3

hmmm, we are still within the ten day period. I looked at the link but does that mean they are replacing the developer points with the cruise and the cost per point is the same? We weren’t planning a trip between now and Oct 3 but thinking of renting out the points. However it seems a lot of people are doing the same thing. I wonder if we can get the cruise instead.


#4

If they fancy creating an incentive where they pay for my points then Ill definatly be interested! Its still way waaaaay out of my league :frowning:


#5

Wow. Wow. Dang it! I already used my developer points but the cruise would have been an AWESOME incentive. I think I would have actually preferred that, especially considering we cancelled a cruise for June cause it was too much cash & we decided to buy 100 BLT points. Argh, oh well.


#6

dang! we would of liked the cruise A LOT better! they are pretty expensive but I don’t have 4 people. lol! so one way or another wouldn’t have worked out. lol!


#7

I kinda think the 7 night cruise was a better value than the 320 Developer Points. BTW, are they still offering the $5 off incentive too?


#8

What would a 7 night cruise for 4 cost–just a ballpark figure? Renting points at $10 a point would get you $3200, I would think a 7 night cruise for 4 would be a lot more than that.


#9

After all my complaining about the new point structure for 2010, I ended up with 28 points I can’t even use this year. So I guess we have enough points after all and I don’t need to add on. BTW, I hate to burn unused points. What can I do with so few?


#10

Can they be banked?


#11

Yes. They are still offering the $5 off per point.


#12

They are leftovers from the yar before. It’s use them or lose them time for me…


#13

$5 off per point, plus a free cruise. Alright stop it, you’re killing me! :pinch::laugh:


#14

I get it. You could offer them for transfer I guess. You and the other member work out a deal and you call DVC and have them moved to the other account.


#15

Any idea when the cruise has to be taken by?


#16

I just checked, and a 3 night cruise for 2 adults 2 kids in December would be at the cheapest $1700. So definitely a better deal than renting the points at 10 per point for 100 points.


#17

I wonder if, since there would only be 3 of us going, they would make it a 7 day cruise for 3 if we bought 200 more points…not that we’re actually going to buy any more, but I was just wondering… :mickey:
