Like many...I got talked into a timeshare with HGVC. I was vaguely familiar with some time share stuff and determined to say no. After about an hour of saying no and them coming back with more, we said yes. Ended up purchasing Elara 3400pts EOY (we are huge vacationers, so didn't want tied in more points than we could use). Purchased for $11k and guy gave us 10,000 pts we could use for 4 years. I liked that we could change points to use with regular hilton hotels(is that worth it). And they said we could purchase 7 day hotel stays for like $350 (or 1 or 3 day stays for cheap prices) (perk of buying "with them"). So first...does this "perk" make purchasing through them worth it? Should I rescind and buy resale? Are there ANY perks that make purchasing through them "worth it". The guy made it seen like you can use this perk to make money by selling these stays to others. I was determined to leave empty handed but they would not stop. Again I like alot of things about this program, but not sure if the "buy through them perks" are worth the price tag.
