Hi
Yes, we have had a point 'owner' at Vitality Assurance Vacations ( Cranberry) since 2016, but NEVER USED ONE POINT !
We had no interest in golfing, skiing etc., but had been on a number of cruises, and were assured by their sales guy, Mike Kelly, at the high pressure sit down, that the points were valid for cruising as well as at other resorts, through RCI . .
NOT SO . .
So I asked for a termination / cancellation whatever, and after being stone walled for months, was told that there was no way to end this contract, and further more, we were obligated for 25 years !!!
CRAP! .... Ridiculous !
I'd love to hear from ANYBODY who has successfully stopped this abusive situation.

1) If you signed a contract at a Canadian resort and reside in Canada - you are probably on the hook for 25 years
unless you wish to stop paying and enter a collection process that could affect your credit.

2) Re: RCI - you should be able to deposit you "week" into RCI and get use.
@Pianoguy - can you explain what you mean by "NOT SO" regarding RCI .

3) Do not pay anybody to help you "exit your TS" as those companies take your money too.

Hi, when we asked initially how to use our points as payment on cruises, we were basically told that we would be paying almost as much in ‘service fees, as we would if we just booked on our own….so NOT SO, just more BS.
Larry Law presents himself as a “great community supporter”, but hi organization is just slimy.

Hello. I’m also looking to connect with Club Cranberry TS owners. My family came up for our week and discovered that the property is being converted to a Retirement Residence. This construction includes the Club Cranberry building. To my knowledge no TS owners have been informed about the timing of this change and what that means for our Right to Use. You can look this up online under planning application

Yikes! I read that in one of the emails from Larry Law. I own at the fairways. They’ve sold most of them but still have some avail for us ts owners to book every other year usage.

I am a Cranberry owner also. Bought weeks then was convinced to convert to points. This started the clock over again at 50 years by which time my husband will be 129! Trying to give it away as the annual fees are too high for what we get and we are not interested in this sort of vacation any more.

Thank you for sharing! They are always trying to get me to convert to points for an additional fee but didn’t know the 50 year reset!

I'm also a Cranberry owner. Did you stop paying maintenance fees? I did, going to collections in 2 week's. Can't draw blood from a stone. Anyone else with experience doing this?
