I just bought a DAE Bonus Certificate to give as a gift. Giving it to a non-timeshare using couple. I am looking forward to seeing what they think. I'm gonna try to coach them on how to find out about the various resorts they can choose from. Who knows, I may even convince them to join TUG so that they can read the reviews! :wave:

I received an email about that voucher. What kinds of places can you book with that voucher?

Mostly second and third tier resorts in off season times all around the world - but in those areas of high supply there are some quite nice places. Booking is for travel less than 60 days out.

Be sure to warn them about the sales weasels...and tell them if they consider buying, make sure they go resale.

A few years ago I gave non-timesharing friends a honeymoon trip as a wedding gift. I told them to stay away from the surveys/resort tours/etc. They ended up going anyway... and told me a month or so later that they actually purchased. It was too late to rescind and they were thrilled with the purchase, so I left it alone. In hindsight, I realize I should have given them more info on buying retail vs. resale.
