    I'm advising a friend who just purchased 81,000 points for the Villa Account VSN with optional Star points. She was in Arizona and was sold this package at the Westin Kierland Resort - and her 10 days expires on Friday. Any advice? The package price was $29,160 after it was all said and done. 2 separate packages - villa account VSN and other is air / hotel account SPG.

    Thanks in advance~

    Absolutely! RECIND, Research, Resale. She could pick up 81,000 Mandatory SOs at Kierland for ~$7,000

    She should rescind. Absolutely.

    The Westin Flex package she bought will have minimal resale value; if she wants to get into timesharing, she should do further research before buying.

    Many thanks to everyone on this thread. Your responses helped give my friend confidence that canceling her contract was the right decision!
