I'm the happy owner of a timeshare in s****. />
To make a long story short, I got hooked into a sampler membership, which allegedly would allow me to try this out during the off season. Whenever I found a weekend that would work to try the sample points and fit within my schedule, I found that a) they were booked already or b) the only thing available was a studio. I wasn't able to even attempt to book a vacation until I got a package which took a month and a half out of the fall, ruining a chance for a vacation over school fall break. In the spring, same story, I did get a couple of days in a studio over spring break, but any other time that my daughter was out, no availability. (And this was in their "off season". Heaven help the poor buggers trying to schedule during the summer.
The final straw was an offer to extend my points, I thought I'd try a different resort, and see if it was any better, no luck, I wasn't able to get a resort that I wanted, and got told that I needed to schedule something or lose the points. I did so to save the points (what a waste) and then I found that I couldn't get off work, I find that they want $50 more for me to cancel, because it took 48 hours not 24 to call these jerks back.
It is hard to believe that I seriously thought about spend 12-24k for their worthless points. After nicking me for nearly $900, for crap that they didn't let me use, they are more concerned about nicking me another $50 bucks, rather than showing me why I should buy a membership. Thank God I found this site, and see what scum they are, before I waste one more nickel. I assume that one of their minions will rebut me, I'll be back. I for one know how an HONORABLE timeshare company treats customers, run don't walk from Bluegreen, cause they can't even spell honorable or ethical !!!
