There's actually a website out there called "How To Get Free Stuff from a Timeshare Presentation." Can you believe it? How insane.
The author seems to be proud of himself by saying that, "the situation my wife and I faced was the need to get cheap Walt Disney World tickets." (Emphasis mine.) First of all, no one NEEDS Walt Disney World tickets and as eveyone knows, Disney tickets are not cheap because Walt Disney World is not a cheap place. If you can't afford to go buddy, then stay home!
The idea of timeshare to begin with is to reallocate money that you are already spending on vacation...so when he says that he was able to get through a timeshare presentation "without commiting (sic) ourselves to a long term financial situation" he makes no sense whatsoever. You're already in a long term financial situation if you are going on vacation and spending money on accommodations.
I won't bore you with the typos that this guy has all over his website, it's just not worth it..I mean after all, how hard is it to spell the word "presentation"?
His book goes for $6.99. I'll save you the time and expense of ordering this worthless bunch of paper. DON'T go timeshare presentations at all if you:
* spend less than $500 per person per year on vacation
* think that giving up 3+ hours of your vacation for tickets is a good deal
* don't understand the value of owning your vacation over renting your vacations
* have a closed mind
Look, timeshares are NOT for everyone. But if they aren't for you, why would you want to sit through presentation after presentation after presentation? Aren't you bored already? You know what, as a former timeshare salesperson, you bore me.
