    I recently went to a HICV resort and purchased 40,000 points annually for $10,500. I was super excited and wanted to learn as much about timeshare ownership as possible which is how I found this website. You made me realize that my purchase was a bad deal and I was able to rescind within my rescission period. I even gave the sales manager an honest shot to renegotiate but he wouldn't budge. Oh well, now that I am not under any sales pressure I will slowly take my time to learn more about timeshare ownership. I am very interested in becoming a timeshare owner..for the right price!

    Welcome to TUG! Do some studying, and become an informed consumer. A lot of us did what you did, but didn't find out about rescinding and resale until later. You are at an advantage!

    Buy resale, Save Thou$and$!

    Welcome to Tug. Congratulations on your rescission. Have a seat and keep reading. There is plenty to learn here, and nobody has an agenda. You'll be able to find the answers you're after.

    Wow......that’s a huge number of points. I’ve never seen that many Hilton points for that price. I still can’t figure out how my Timeshare works. Ha! Glad you were able to rescind.

    HIVC is not Hilton. It is Holiday Inn.
