I traveled to Grand Discovery in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  This trip was made in response to a call received at our home approximately two weeks earlier.  The call was made by a representative of Grand Discovery and informed us of an opportunity to purchase discount vacations.  The caller also advertised that we would receive various gifts in return for traveling to South Carolina and meeting with the Grand Discovery representative.  These gifts included two (2) free roundtrip flights to any major airport in the continental United States, hotel accommodations for three (3) days and two (2)  nights at over 1,000 locations in the Marriott, Ramada or Radisson Family of Hotels, and a three hundred dollar ($300) gift card to Wal-Mart. 

In consideration of these gifts, my husband and I traveled to South Carolina to meet with the Grand Discovery representative.  During our visit, we were informed that Grand Discovery offered a Lifetime Membership in Grand Resort Travel.  This Lifetime Membership enabled members to travel to various resorts throughout the world at a discount of up to 65% off the published resort rental rates.  During the sales presentation, we were shown a book of resorts and cruises which members could access throughout the world at this discounted rate.  We were assured that these resorts were not limited and booking was guaranteed at any location desired so long as three to four week notice was provided to the company.  Further, the Grand Discovery representative assured us that Grand Discovery would price match offers made by any other travel agency including discount providers such as Expedia or Carnival Cruises.  


In order to provide credibility to this sales opportunity, the Grand Discovery representative showed us copies of various customer letters illustrating a high level of satisfaction with the company.The first indication of a problem appeared in reference to the Wal-Mart gift card.  Instead of giving us with a $300 gift card to Wal-Mart as promised, Grand Discovery provided us with a brochure for $300 in retail merchandise rebates.  The brochure advertised that a $25 gift card would be provided each month the customer purchased $100 of merchandise from Wal-Mart.  This offer was available for a total of twelve (12) months and required the customer to mail in their receipts each month.  The offer also required the customer to mail in a check for $9.95 the first month.  This $9.95 was to be refunded to the customer on the gift card for the first months purchases.  After making our purchases, we immediately began trying to use our Wal-Mart gift card.  As required, we provided proof of at least $100 worth of purchases through receipts for the months of September, October and November. 

When the Wal-Mart rebates did not function as advertised, we contacted Grand Discovery Travel to inquire into a possible problem.  Multiple messages were l
