The term "use year" refers to a month. The first day of every UY month is when owners will receive their annual allotment of DVC points.
There are eight Use Years to consider: February, March, April, June, August, September, October, and December
The last day to do this is 8 months after your use year. So if you own a December Use Year, your last day to bank points is July 31st.
If you purchase an additional contract, a different Use Year will require two membership accounts.
Doing this within 30 days of check in will put your points in a holding account.
Ideally, you should travel early in your use year. This makes it easier to ensure you spend, bank or borrow points with plenty of time left in the year.
It depends! If you’re browsing DVC and already own a contract, you’ll want to consider whether you want to keep your DVC points under one membership or have some flexibility with multiple.
Not really, it's all down to personal preference. There's no distinguishable difference in costs that are tied to a Use Year, so pick what works best for you.
