administrator, please close this thread. clearly, no one wants an answer on this but just more ad nauseum discussion as in the thread you just closed recently.

So because in 5 days no one posted that they had booked a resort for less than a rental the OP now has the data to prove "NO ONE HERE HAS EVER BOOKED A DVC VILLA THROUGH CRO TO SAVE MONEY OVER RENTING"

This thread has been bizarre from the start and I don't think the assumption made is accurate either.

"NO ONE HERE HAS EVER BOOKED A DVC VILLA THROUGH CRO TO SAVE MONEY OVER RENTING"

Well , here you go then !

Here IS some hard evidence .........for a transaction that has actually been complete (not just hearsay) .

Granted , this is at HHI , but still a DVC resort that is bookable via the CRO route.
........And, yes we have done this (actually a few times) , and have receipts to prove it.

3 night stay over the "choice season" Feb/March . Fri/Sat/Sun stay for a 2 bdrm villa is 95 points .
We paid CRO rate with DVC discount for same room - total stay INCLUDING taxes and ALL fees - $514.80 for all three nights. Yes, $171.60 per night for a 2 bdrm villa , through CRO .

That equals $5.41 a point for the 95 point stay , via the CRO cash route.

There is NO way we could rent points for that stay for $5.41 PP........ from anyone !
Heck we dont even use our own points for that kind of cost saving via CRO.

So renting points is clearly MORE costly , than CRO route with a DVC discount in this instance . On top of that, even using our own points for this instance is more costly ! There is NO DVC property with annual dues lower than $5.41 a point to make this even a break even deal .


Plus, daily housekeeping for the stay, and full refund capabilities as an additional bonus (unlike renting points).

There are some HARD facts ............ with no ad nauseum discussion.

if you read my original post, you'll see that i speculated this below because NO ONE (til you) posted such. rather they posted junk.

if everyone had adhered to the op, this might have been a useful thread. that was the purpose. but read through the thread...gibberish and arguing attacks.

posts such as yours, the first of its kind, are the only way to answer this question.

i can't help with this anymore. most folks just don't understand or care that this is only way to get any evidence and learn anything.

carry on.

The OP has requested the thread be closed, so it's closed.
