The Importance of Use Year on the DVC Resale Market

By Noah Belachew | Content Writer

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.

What is DVC Use Year?

What are the DVC Use Year Months?

There are eight Use Years to consider: February, March, April, June, August, September, October, and December

Next, let's talk about three important rules to keep in mind when it comes to the DVC Use Year Calendar

The last day to bank DVC Points

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.

Buying an additional contract

If you purchase an additional contract, a different Use Year will require two membership accounts.

Cancelling your reservation

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.

Consider DVC Use Year when buying a DVC resale

Does Use Year matter if I already own DVC?

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.
