And I did all the booking for that holiday at least 6 months in advance.
I travel a lot. I knew I could use it, seemed like a no-brainer. There were a lot of families in the group. I may have been the only single person there. My saleswoman made notes about everything I said. But they roll over every year and never expire!
OK but you still have to buy them if you want to go anywhere. They also want to sell you the plan that covers your airfare and car rentals which I would guess is where they likely make very good commissions. I actually do travel quite a bit but I have my own preferences and I just kept repeating to my saleswoman that while I see the benefits for other people, I was not the right fit. I had to be able to make the benefit inapplicable to me.
I had to get pushy myself to finally get the saleswoman to tell me what the actual plan costs were. I got high-pressure with her and kept asking for the cost. OK then things got easier for me. Because I have a background in finance, I got specific with that and she finally had a tougher time responding. I was put at a small table in the corner of a bare room. I found myself wanting to stare him down as I would imagine I was at the point where a lot of people break. When he finally gave me the last papers to sign, acknowledging that I was conceding to some abysmal future of depression and regret, he seemed to want me to feel he was disgusted by me.
Sorry to make a long post here! That sounds like a terrible experience.
Who could it possibly be right for? Who needs this??? Instead of making payments to Wyndham, why not make deposits to an interest-bearing savings account and then use Kayak, Trivago, Homeaway, Vrbo, AirBnB, Hometogo, etc, to find a great hotel or vacation home? There were several families with small children at the sales presentation I attended.
If any of them bought one of those packages, I hope they have fully-funded college funds for each of their kids already. These might be good if they have a network of properties you can go to. You could go different places if you want. But it all depends on how the agreement is structured as to whether it makes sense. You bring up good points, though. This is based on past performance over an extended time period. Bottom line, forget the timeshare. I Love this and it is funny and true as hell. I had a similar experience and while my mom and I enjoyed our vacation, I signed papers and i bet by the end of that trip i cancelled.
Thank God I read every detail while I was on my few-hours trip to the Bahamas. How did you get out of it???? I have similar experience with the timeshare seller at the Hilton. First he was nice to me, bring me coffee, etc. He start making at fun like 20min. These timeshare seller is woste. I enjoyed reading the article and the discussions. I just wanted to share my experience with hopes that others will be knowledgeable.
If you are approached by sales persons for a timeshare, club, etc.
How To Sell Your Home For More Money
They want you to make a right-now decision. I am normally one who likes to take some time to make a decision, especially one that could cost thousands of dollars. The pitch will sound awesome, a chance to travel to exclusive resorts and receive the benefits of being a member. In our instance, we started with breakfast to soften us up and told us to just have an open mind. We were told that there never had been an offer like this before. During the sales pitch, they offered me drinks. I did not really drink, so I cannot blame it on the alcohol. There was a high-sales lady who was very persuasive.

They will start off with high numbers and ever if you still say no, they will keep pushing. Let me reiterate, do not make a right now decision, say NO. Take the free gifts and leave; in fact, RUN. If this is a opportunity for you, then it will come around again. Well, perhaps they have the money or know how they can use it as an investment.
Others may have given in to the pressure. Either way, during the signing stage, you will find that the sales person did not tell you the complete story. Some details will be left out, such as u must take that vacation in a year and a half. You are NOT obligated to sign, but at this point, you feel, well, compelled to do so.
After all, you will be helping that new sales person earn a commission to support their family. Just walk away!!!
YOUR HOME SOLD GUARANTEED!*
For some, you may can cancel. Once I signed and initialed on the lines, I went to read reviews. Boy, that was a mistake; it make me feel as if it was the worst decision that every made and on top of that, I spent thousands of dollars in doing so. If you can, read the reviews before you meet with them. This will give you more questions to ask. Okay, so here is what you will not get told. The free gifts and perks are nice. On top of that, you will have to pay a closing cost. I did not want to put the money on my credit card, which they do a hard credit check. So, I though I was out of the woods.
Guess how? Well, they will opened up a credit credit account for me and gave me 6 months We were told that we could ask for an additional 6 months if needed; well, not sure if I believe that one. So now, we have another credit card debt , a loan more debt and two hard credit inquires; now, my credit score will drop. Well, we were given 5 years to paid it off. The monthly fee for the loans is in addition to the credit card that we have to pay off. So now, we have two more bills to pay. Be mindful of the interest on the membership. Ask them that if you pay for 5 years, how much would you end up paying?
Ask them about membership costs. How much would that be over the cost of the membership. Think long term, not short term. I am not sure if you took the time to read this entire note.
