Disney Vacation Club is contacting non-members who have expressed an interest in DVC with an attractive new promotion--a $1000 gift card plus a "free vacation" with their first DVC purchase.
The basic terms of the offer are as follows:
Experience unforgettable family vacations for years to come. When you purchase a minimum real estate interest in a Disney Vacation Club Resort before January 15, 2009, receive a complimentary Disney vacation* getaway plus a $1,000 Gift Card that you can use during your trip.
Plus a little fine print to outline the complimentary vacation:
The complimentary Disney vacation includes accommodations for 5 nights in a one-bedroom accommodation at any Disney Vacation Club Resort, is available only to first-time purchasers, and requires the purchase of 220 or more vacation points. For purchases equal to 160 or more vacation points, purchasers receive a 3-night stay in a one-bedroom accommodation at any Disney Vacation Club Resort. Reservations must be booked by and stays must be completed by October 3, 2009, or the offer expires. Accommodations subject to availability. Restrictions apply. Only valid on select Disney Vacation Club Resorts.
This offer is not much different from recent promotions which offer a $6.25 discount off of the base price ($6.25 x 160 points = the $1000 gift card) plus a set of Developer's Points. Whether the set of Developer's Points or this "complimentary vacation" is a better offer would largely depend upon the dates and resort booked.
