Wonderful effort, Brian. When I get a bit of time- and I'm not just on my Kindle, I will look through BSR & Mexico forums. Those should produce some savings testamonials too. I think we could get known savings over a $ million in the last 5 years.

Two separate running totals are better

what I also noticed, is that there is an equal number of folks who went to a presentation or were thinking about buying, that changed their minds and bought resale instead.

trying to figure out if thats worth adding in with the rescission or not.

It makes more sense to keep it as a separate count, especially since there aren't necessarily dollar savings associated with the mind-changers.

eh, I dont mind using the verifiable stuff posted in threads here...its more significant (to me anyway) in an industry that seems to flourish on fuzzy math and creative marketing figures.

This way there is no question.

Amount rescinded

I see you pulled my post about rescinding at Flagship Atlantic City (11/4/13). For your recordkeeping purposes, you can update the amount I saved to $9K. Thanks SO MUCH!

Saved money after finding TUG.

I saved $ after finding TUG. My husband & I attended a timeshare presentation back in late Sept. The sales person was a cocky little fellow that tried to control what I said and I wouldn't play his stupid little game. So, on the way home, I read everything I found at TUG on the ipad and read all about the resale market.

With my resale purchase I get a RCI membership. So, how do I join II? I mainly am interested in buying extra last call stuff.

You'd get an II membership the same way you got an RCI membership. Buy a resale week at an II affiliated property.

you are most welcome, it truly puts a smile on my (and many...many others here) face to read each and every person who finds TUG in time to discover the resale market.

I can think of no other place where one can save so much money with so little effort!

But, aren't some properties, both RCI & II?

Mindy

Yes they are but there is usually a benefit to using one system over the other. For example some Starwood properties are both but Starwood has a preference with other Starwood resorts in II so just by the fact you have Starwood you are in a better position that a stronger trader to trade for another Starwood.

Bought Timeshare with GeoHoliday Jockey Club..

Bought Timeshare with GeoHoliday Jockey Club, but thanks to TUG I had time to recind my mistake.

I had purchased 20,000 pts with GeoHoliday fo EOY for $8700. How they convinced me is affiliation with RCI and last minute deals would only cost me 5000pts a vacation so that is 4 weeks of vacation for every 20000 pts...

Something interesting I noticed. I read 3 of these story's in full & then checked the stats of the original poster. All 3 never posted again after they rescinded.
They got great advice, were saved a lot of money & left, never to return. Hmmm...
