    I have had ads on Ebay, craigslist and of course here. What about friends and family? A friend of mine made an ad and posted it to her Facebook and asked a few friends to share it and she had more takers than she had weeks.

    I just charge my costs. The proportionate cost of the maintenance based on the points used, guest certificate and any ebay and paypal fees. If you book through private sources (friends/family) you can offer a better rate since you will not have to pay the ebay/paypal fees.

    Good luck. Its not easy but at least early enough in the year that you still have time.

    I figured it'd be just advertising and notifying Welk about it..I guess I'll have to make a thread about it.

    That is just for last minute rental section. You can list in the TUG marketplace for whatever you want.

    You should be able to rent out a week at the Lawrence Welk in Escondido for at least close to your MF's, it's only 45 minutes from the beach! If you book a summer or spring break week it shouldn't be a problem. Just try to book the largest unit you can and don't ask too much and it should rent with no problem.

    Trust me, someday you will use this if you can't get rid of it! T/S can provide wonderful vacations with very comfortable amenities. I hope you get to enjoy what it can offer in a future vacation.

    It's been a little while since I have posted in here..been busy and moving..fun stuff.

    Unless I've overlooked it I dont see a section where I can advertise what I have that I want to sell..I have some time saved up cause I was over seas so if someone can point to where I can rent out my saved time I would appreciate it.

    Thanks. :)

    Welcome back!

    In the red bar above at the top of your screen is a section called "marketplace." That is where the ads are.

    That's nothing $15 can't solve.

    Beefy's right. You own the TS. It has no value other than in it's use. Might as well use TUG to find out how to use it and have some great vacations. For $15 you can check reviews of where you can exchange into then if you still want to list it for sale or to rent some weeks out that's an option too.

    Best wishes
