Part of owning timeshares is that when you use them you are offered to take an owner update. Many people hate the sales presentations and most people prefer to take the money offered as a way to pay for eating out. But my Philosophy is to always take the points... Hopefully I will make that clear through this video that it is the best option.

In this video, I provide an overview of what is typically offered and then I jump right in and explain three examples of how taking the points is the best idea. I start with a Hilton example, then follow that up with a Club Wyndham example, and lastly with a Marriott Vacation Club example... Take the Points.
