I do like the "Stay Calm and Buy Resale."
There's also:
"Ask my about my $1 Timeshare"
or
"Ask my about YOUR $1 Timeshare" ;)
or
"Yes, you should rescind! Ask me how."

1. "Adopt a pre-owned timeshare... and save thousands!"

2. I recall seeing this somewhere a while back, and I love it... "I don't always buy timeshares, but when I do, I buy resale" (in the style of Dos Equis - The Most Interesting Man In the World)

The Cancun-arrivals exit-area parted like the Red sea when I walked through wearing this. DH and friends were behind me and pointed to me when they were approached: "We're with her."

It was funny watching them read the shirt. Salesperson kryptonite .

sorry, things got a bit busy...i still need to make a poll for folks to vote on the next round of tshirts then create them in tspring.

sofar I have:

1. "Adopt a pre-owned timeshare and save Thousands!"
2. I dont always buy Timeshares, but when I do, I buy resale"
3. "I cancelled/rescinded my last retail timeshare purchase!"
4. "Ask me about my $1 Timeshare"
5. "Ask me about YOUR $1 Timeshare"
6. "I bought my timeshare for $1, ask me how"
7. "yes you should rescind, ask me how"
8. "Why pay retail for a Timeshare when you can buy one for $1 instead?"
9. "I am considering a $1 TUG Resale offer for this Timeshare"
10. "I only buy $1 Timeshare Resales on TUG"
11. "I Will buy your Timeshare for $1"
12. "I will buy that Timeshare for $1"
13. "Timeshare Users Group taught me how to buy this timeshare for $1"
14. "Every Timeshare owner benefits from knowing about TUG!"
15. "Ask me how you can save thousands of dollars on your Timeshare purchase"
16. "Timeshare Resale owner/buyer and proud of it!"

Ill give it till the end of the week to add any more slogans here then ill create a poll and design a shirt with the winning slogan on it for purchase.

Well, none of our TS were resale purchases (bought years ago, before the internet was such a good source of information), so that eliminates quite a few of your options above for us, and right now I'd vote for number 14. But actually I most love the one that @SandyPGravel is wearing in the photo above your post, and I would buy that one!

I get a kick out of these provocative and humorous tee shirts. As time goes on, I go to fewer and fewer presentations. But perhaps I'll buy one of the next lot of tee shirts.

I thought that all of this was a great idea. So I posted it on Interval Intl. on a string regarding tee shirts that people wear on their TS vacations. Most wore tee shirts promoting a local sports team or college or university. I didn't mention that these are available for purchase because I thought that it might violate one of Interval's rules. It will probably be deleted but maybe not. But perhaps a few people may join Tug or may have their eyes opened in regards to resale timeshares.

vs antagonizing the sales reps...I like to think these shirts engage more "bystanders" to strike up a conversation with the TUG member wearing it!

These shipped out today. All 6 of the initial orders were different colors!

They are available in over 20 colors of tees and about half a dozen colors in the Football Raglan.

The teeshirt design to cope with timeshare presentations has a limitless horizon as I see a competition for the best non confrontational design whilst passing a message to the presentation person and their 'manager' would sell very well, image with potent repost folks that is the aim.

This is a great idea. Should be standard issue for anyone flying into CUN, PVR, or SJD.

I just ordered the "latest 2019" shirt from Hip Together, but I also ordered the TUG Island Logo Pocket Print shirt from Amazon, so now I'll have two TUG shirts to choose from! I wish the one from Hip Together had the TUG Island logo on it - would help keep it from being sort of plain. Do we still get a year's membership for buying a shirt? If not, that's fine, just curious!
