I went to a timeshare sales pitch at orange lake back in 2007 and Diamond in 2010. They want $20-44K for developer cost. Thanks to TUG I have purchased a total of six on the secondary market for pennies on the dollar and sold or gave back 3 I could no longer use effectively due to relocation. I now have three HICV I picked up at South Beach, Smoky Mountain and Lake Geneva for $1 each, one Platinum and one Diamond. I'm now looking at my first Marriott EOYO and Hyatt EOYE. TUG has literally saved me tens of thousands of dollars. Thank you TUG and Thank you TUG Community!

not particularly.

the folks who are more inclined to send nastygram letters are the scammers and upfront fee shysters that get reported here in various threads etc. especially when those forum posts start showing up when you type in the companies name in google etc.

sadly our 15mil or so isnt much of a dent in the multi-billion-dollar timeshare retail sales industry!

Can not thank you all enough for this website. Wife and I and our daughters took a trip down to Myrtle Beach this past week and stayed in the new HGVC Ocean Enclave. Play was absolutely amazing. We did the sales pitch and ended up taking a 4100 point Silver for 23k, 15,000 bonus points that must be used within an allotted timeframe and HOA fee annually of $885. I give them credit as I am not one to jump on what appears to be a good deal without researching, but they got us. We paid 3k down and was set to take on a 10 year loan at $4800 or so per year plus the HOA annually. Fortunately, I did research when I was back in the comfort of our own home and came across this site. I immediately signed up and paid the $15 annual to do more research. We will definitely still be picking up a time share but with the knowledge on this board, I will not be better suited to play the hand! I was able to send out the certified rescind letter this morning with USPS which is 4 days, and within the approved timeframe in our contract. Thank you all for not just helping me, but the many others I have been seeing on here that have been helped.

It is nothing against the sales team with HGVC, it was more that the deal was not as good of a deal as I thought it would be.

As far as the Ocean Enclave, the place is amazing. Understanding we were there in offseason, we had some things to do while we were down there.

Thanks again all, and I look forward to being a part of this site as we continue to search for our timeshare in Myrtle.

~John
