    Timeshare Traveler Episode 174... Is Timeshare Industry Consolidation Good?

    With the recent announcement by Hilton to purchase Bluegreen, the timeshare industry consolidation continues to grow. In the last five years we have seen Hilton buy two timeshare companies, Marriott by one and Club Wyndham buy a travel company. In this video, I will recap the recent purchases...

    Debating default on my newly bought timeshare

    Good morning Ya'll, Like a lot of people (though that doesn't make me feel any better) I fell for the BlueGreen sales pitch. We planned to say no so we didn't do any through research beforehand and by the time a big enough red flagged hit us it was already passed the rescind time. If...

    Corporate Consulting Associates

    Has anybody heard of or had experience with Corporate Consulting Associates out of Cheyenne, WY? Recent visit from rep claims they can cancel my annual fees through the settlement between Bluegreen and Bass Pro Shops. Of course, they want a fee upfront, always a bad sign.

    Is it possible to book Bluegreen Associate Resorts?

    I'm curious if anyone has some insight on Bluegreen Associate Resorts. My guess is that they only allow a small number of units for bluegreen owners, like RCI or other timeshare collaborations and therefore it is possible to book them, but they are very very limited. As far as I remember I have...

    Evaluating Bluegreen resale points

    Hi All, We're evaluating several timeshare systems and have ruled out Disney - won't travel there enough to make it feasible at their high prices, and the system is now rapidly changing so we may not be able to resell when we need to divest. For Disney, it's probably better to just rent the...

    It is embarrassing to admit but my husband and I are professionals with advanced graduate degrees. However, we bought into Bluegreen I think we made a mistake.
