We just did the owner update at St. George. I would have to say that it was the hardest NON sales UPDATE I have ever had the displeasure to attend.
He did try to get us to see the “VALUE” in spending just $40,000. If we parted with that menial sum we would be able to travel the world in style just using our credits. He explained that he is going to Maui next week and he will stay at the Marriott, fly and get his rental car for just 12,000 credits.

both the first guy, I’ll call him the “warmer up” and the “presenter” explained that they too were also Worldmark owners and only started working for Worldmark after having been an owner for one year. I think I’ve heard that from every timeshare sales rep i have ever had the displeasure to meet.

But back to this guy. He said he had 12,000 credits. Thats interesting because you have to buy 10,000 credits to be part of the new system?

He also said that the new system could be transferred to a new owner and that they would have all the same access that I would have. I explained that all other systems, limit access and charge about 1/2 of what a new credit costs to transfer. He assured me that wasn’t the case.

He also said if we have credits we wont use we can give the back and they would credit our account for the unused credits. I think they said that since I attended the presentation I have that now.

His head almost snapped off when I told him about the other timeshares I own. He said I could deposit the weeks with ravel & Leisure. A 2 bedroom would be worth 8,000 credits, but units with lockoffs count as 2 units at 7,000 credits each. This is when my hour was up and I left. He whined there was just a little more and I would miss the best part. What a shame I missed the best part! I guess I will have something to look forward to the next time, THERE WONT BE A NEXT TIME!!!

I still haven’t received my gift yet, they say it will be emailed to me. What’s the delay?

I know I don’t have to say this, but NOTHING WAS IN WRITING!

Thanks for listening.

St George is one of the worst in WM and that is saying something. Aggressive and abusive. The guy chased me out into the parking lot and started yelling at me for refusing the update. I had a chat with the manager, which doesn't do much good with Wyndham, where sales is king, but at least got me checked in at my next stay without any sales contact.

Thanks for the heads up. I have never said at WM St G as an owner, only ever exchanged in. Now that I own WM I assuming it will be a harder press.

The only reason we did, the presentation was that things had changed, and we wanted to see what they had to say. They did say that we will have access to Wyndham inventory like the travel share people going forward. He didn’t say how much it would cost to do that probably $50 or $100.

The maintenance fee offset program is if you aren’t going to use your credits you can give them back to offset your dues sounds interesting.
