Who can turn down the offer in free airline tickets and resort stay in exchange for listening to a 60 minute timeshare presentation?
This is a fairly common sales tactic. Offer a free night at a resort in exchange for your time at a timeshare presentation. Most people understand they might be inconvenienced in exchange for a “free” gift. It is easy to underestimate how inconvenienced you will be in these situations.
Typically you can choose not to attend the presentation, if you pay the room rate. Make sure to read, and understand, anything you agree to in exchange for the “free room”.
Leave your checkbook and credit cards in the room, and answer every question with no should you choose to attend. The presentations are typically exercises in high pressure sales for more than an hour. The duration of the presentation is key for the sales process. Everyone says no when they walk in the door. The sales team knows you want to get out and enjoy the resort. Their job is to wear you down until you say yes.
By all means, accept the offer if you want to test your will to resist a high pressure sales pitch.
