Complaint Review: Save on Resorts - Carlsbad California
Save on Resorts Travel, Select Resorts and My Getaways Free Cruise and Flight Scam Carlsbad California
*REBUTTAL Individual responds: Brains
On 3/10/15, we received an offer from Norwegian Cruise Line for an 8 day/ 7 night cruise of 2 adults (approximate retail value $1499). Additionally, if we responded within 72 hours, we received round trip airfares for 2 adults. So we called the number provided, spoke with Trish (844-663-1378 ext. 3357). She confirmed that we did qualify for these to free gifts, and set the time for the 90 minute sales presentation that we needed to attend in order to claim these prizes. She stated several times that we did not need to buy anything and that we would indeed receive the cruise and airfare at the end of 90 minutes. On 3/21/15, we attended the sales presentation at the Red Lion in Eureka, CA. The program is being put on by Save on Resorts. What they would selling was travel lifetime membership. At the end of the sales pitch, the cost was $5,995, plus yearly dues of $199. We declined and left with our certificate for the cruise and flight. This was all presented to us as a package gift. We could use the flight to travel to our desired cruise port. On 3/22/15, we mailed the voucher to Travel Select Rewards to redeem our prizes. On 3/27/15 we received the confirming email from IIG Promotions. After reading and reviewing the email, I called IIG Promotions and spoke with Debbie. Bottom line after speaking with her, I learned that we cannot use the flight in conjunction with the cruise...they have to be 2 separate vacations. Additionally, the cruise will cost us at least $500 per person possibly more. I told her that I thought this was a scam, very misleading and that I would be throwing away the free vouchers.
