We went out to a presentation sscheduled for late in the evening on a weeknight.  We joined on March 26, 2013.  I am sure that they set up appointments late so people are rushed at the end when reading through legal documents.  we were told that their were thousands of locations to chose from.  We were told that we couldn't access website until we had been "verified" which would be in 2-3 days.  But you only have 3 days to cancel.  

We were not told that there would be a $275 Peak season fee for every vacation booked when our kids would be able to join us.  We were told that once we were verified we would get our ID number which would be needed to look at properties.  The agent split up the paperwork between us and so we both only were getting half the information.  I believe this is another ploy of theirs.  After signing up we came home and saw many complaints.  

We also saw 3 times as many people who were happy with their packages.  The better business bureau gave them an A+ rating.  We weren't "verified" for 2 weeks.  We immediately get online and see that the resorts were only in 20 states.  We were shocked.  Then once we started to see try to book a vacation we realized we had been lied to.  Most of the units don't even look like 2 star properties.  We were told they were 4 to 5 star properties.  No availability!!! This programs better suits older retired people who can go on the fly.  

It does not benefit families at all.  We were trying to go to Disney but we would use one of our stars, pay $189 a piece for 2 extra bedrooms and the $275 peak fee on top of the $159 fee for the week.  $812.  But if me and hubby are slfish and go without the kids while they are in school then we pay only the $159.  I would never suggest this "vacation club" to anyone. You can't choose your vacation it is chosen for you because nothing is available where you wanted to visit.
