    Diamond Sampler Reservation Cancel Fee - $75

    Hello It is with embarrassment that I say I purchased a DRI Sampler. Waste of money and all the lies. Anyway I am where I am. We had a reservation for April, nothing much 4 days. We decided to not go. I booked in Oct 19. There is a $75 cancel fee. Which just irritates the S*^t out of me. Does...

    Diamond Now Require Seller and Buyer Affidavits

    this past summer, apparently Diamond now requires buyer and sellers to sign and notarize transfer affidavits. Check out the screenshot! Wonder if this is just stonewalling, or Diamond forcing sellers to use their Transitions program.

    Diamond Premiere Vacations Collection

    Free points to good family. 4250 points per year in a EOY even plan. I live in Europe now, so I cannot use the points. Annual fees about $950. Many locations in Arizona (Phoenix, Tucson, Sedona, Scottsdale, Payson, Pinetop) plus Mexico and Miami, Estes Park and South Bend, Las Vegas.

    Pay another year or default?

    Diamond does not accept Transitions if you have the points from a third party. I can pay up again for points I do not want, or I can let it go without paying and cast myself to the winds. Which is better?
