How do timeshare gimmicks work?
Many times they will get you with the promise of a free vacation if you merely attend one 90 minutes presentation. Seems like a good deal, but really it is a trap! They will ask questions on your vacations that you have taken; Tell them you stay at the cheapest hotels you can find because you are there only to sleep and not for the amenities provided. Tell them spending a lot for a room, or having a kitchen is not for you; On vacation you like to eat out and see the sights. Getting the time down to 90 minutes will be the hardest because they keep switching you from one sales person to another with different sales pitches. Just tell them you have tickets for a play starting at such and such a time and need to leave when your time is up. Just don’t fall for their shady tactics.
They will try make it last for 3 hours, no way around it. These guys are hardcore. They will try to find out how much you spend on vacations annually, so low ball everything. You only go once or twice a year, you stay with family/friends, or you stay in a crap motel for $40 a night, you have an RV, you like tent camping or backpacking, you keep your vacations low-key. You get the idea. It will be easier if you don’t have children, because obviously children drive vacation costs way up. Just grit your teeth, keep saying no to everything, and never ever sign up for another one.
It can be easy to get out quickly, you just have to handle it right. Set an Appointment somewhere else to start 20 min. after the sales presentation supposed to be over. (Doctor, Dentist, show, water park, what ever,) Be cordial, let them do their job, let them know that you are broke and there is no way you can afford anything, bring the document (invitation) that states the time length, 30 minutes before it supposed to be over, let them know of the appointment. Leave. If you have been easily duped by sales men before do not even go! You are setting yourself up for disaster!
