Default 2 Direct membership contracts question

Hi
OKW since 1993
I need an expert opinion, please
We have 2 direct contracts
200 pts OKW
25 pts OKW
Is it possible to sell the 200 points, keep the 25 and maintain the membership and blue card?
I would like to buy into a resort that has a longer ending date, which might be a resale contract.
I do NOT want to lose my blue card, etc.
Thank you so much!

When did you buy the 25 points?
If you purchased the 25 prior to the membership minimums being applied then yes.
If your purchase was after, then no.

Default 2 contracts

Hi
OKW since 93
We bought the second contract (25) shortly after the first one was purchased in1993 so yes it was before the restrictions changed.
Thanks

You’ll keep your benefits because you will be grandfathered in under the old rules. However, whatever new points you purchase will still be restricted. It gets tricky. Bottom line, you’ll still be eligible for member perks, but you may have to make a phone call if you want to book MM, for example, when staying on the non-qualified points. It works for some, and others have had to call. There seems to be little to no consistency. You will definitely still be a full benefits member though!

I, too, sold an OKW contract several years ago, but kept my BWV add-on. Since then, I've added direct and resale contracts and never had a problem w restricted v. unrestricted points. I believe that since I still have my original 1992 contract number with the various add ons as just xxxx.001-xxxx.012 that's the reason. I think that, in itself, is a good reason to stay w your original UY, keeping your original contract number.
