Timeshare Presentations: Is The Free breakfast Worth It?

Think about this; If timeshares were good enough, Why would any resort give you a tour and a free breakfast to get you to attend their sales presentation? Learn how timeshares trick people to go to their presentation, but best, how they are convinced to walk out of there with a timeshare contract in their hands.

Is there such a thing as a free gift?

If the timeshare offer seem too good to be true, they probably are. Vacationers are offered free breakfasts, activities such as horseback riding or scuba diving, or even week-long vacations just to attend a short 90-minute timeshare presentation. They are told that there is no obligation to buy a timeshare, just to listen and learn about the great deals or investments being offered. In return, they will enjoy some free gifts to compensate them for their time and thank them for their interest. While some of these presentations are legitimate, most are timeshare scams that use high-pressure sales tactics to lure clients into purchasing high-priced, low-value timeshares.

The timeshare presentation experience

The timeshare presentation experience normally starts out in a pleasant manner. The clients enjoy a lovely breakfast or lunch with an ocean view, tour some beautiful properties and enjoy free alcoholic beverages. It seems that the timeshare presentation will be short and informative; however, the 90-minute presentations quickly turn into 3 or 4-hour nightmares.

The pressure

Throughout this stressful process, the potential buyers are offered several different packages, each package getting progressively cheaper as they try to work within the client´s budget. If the client is not getting persuaded into purchasing, they will bring in new salespeople to offer an even better deal. The aggressive salespeople do not allow the clients to leave peacefully. Some clients have even told us that when they asked to leave after 4 hours of listening to the timeshare presentation, they are told to wait for transportation to pick them up to drive them back to the resort. Another 4 hours later, they were finally released, distraught and exhausted after being coerced into signing a fraudulent timeshare contract.

... and to entice the sale...

During the timeshare presentation, clients are often presented with more offers of free gifts or services if the timeshare contract is signed. Common promises include such things as large discounts on airfares, cruises, or VIP service at five-star hotels and resorts worldwide. Sometimes they are offered additional points in their vacation club package that can be redeemed for international cruises or stays at other international resorts. These gifts are scams used by the timeshare sales people to close the sale. They will give certificates to the clients for them to redeem their special offers. However, when the purchasers go to use these “gifts”, there are extra fees involved to redeem them, making the “gifts” virtually worthless. It would be cheaper for the clients to book the vacation as a non-owner than it would be to use their special offer. Other times, the salespeople state that the free offers are limitless; they do not expire and/or can be used for friends and family in addition to the timeshare owners. These promises are never put in writing, and when the clients try to use their certificate, they are told that this offer has already expired or only applies to the owners.

The salespeople will tell clients that their offer to receive the free gifts is only valid if they purchase now. The potential buyers do not have time to wait and think about the purchase because the offer will expire today. The salespeople are very good at convincing clients that they want to help them by offering them a great deal, and clients often feel pressured into purchasing due to these deceitful and insistent sales tactics.

Reality

Legitimate timesharesales will not claim one-day sales or unrealistic gift offers. If the timeshare is not a scam, their offers will be the same regardless of whether you purchase today, tomorrow, or one month from now. As atimeshare purchaser, it is important that you take the time to do the research about the property in which you are interested in purchasing a timeshare. Make sure that you search for client reviews online to ensure that they are not a scam and that their offers are valid and being successfully enjoyed by their clients. A timeshare can be an enjoyable purchase if you are investing into a plan that will suit your vacation needs, and have the flexibility that your family desires. Do not feel pressured into making a timeshare purchase based on the gifts that are offered today only. Before investing thousands of dollars in a binding commitment, ensure that you are purchasing a comprehensive vacation package that will offer you the freedom to travel when and where you want.

    I dont have any clue about those kinds of "traps " , i go to mexico very often , i visited vallarta,cancun, mazatlan , and many others, sometimes salespeople tried to approached me and try to sell me something, a friend of mine one time felt on that trap and at the end of the timeshare presentation , the salespeople force him to buy something, but at the end my friend never accepted, " those people are a total a fraud" that was he told me.

    Of course not ! , actually i dont get it why people still felt in those types of scams, the salespersons are very annoying when they make the effor t to sell something, even if you say no , they gonna try to make you pay for something, at least force you yo go to a timeshare presentation in exchange for a free breakfast or a free ride to somewhere else, its a risky thing to say yes, so the better option is to say no no no and no always

    I have to admit that when someone offer something "free" is very tentative, also make us felt on a comfortable situation, but if we think a little , why they offer something free if at the same time promise the best quality ever ? something is weird isnt it? dont trust in the word "free" obviously is a trap

    Very good points, thank you for the tips. I was recently tricked into doing a timeshare presentation and I’m definitely going to use your tips when I go. Basically, I was at a fair and was told that they were doing discounted stays at a resort in Florida. I agreed, filled out the paperwork, and paid. At the end of the paperwork, before the signature page, the guy said “oh by the way, you will have to do a brief presentation when you are there.” There was nothing stated about timeshares, but I did some research and figured it out. No problem, I get to stay at a resort for pretty much nothing and thanks to your tips, I won’t have a hard time with the pushy people.

    I think it's a nice option for save money, avoid the hard sell and choose from an almost endless array of destinations and resorts.

    I attended a similar presentation once. I told them I never make a major investment without consulting with my financial counselor or lawyer. They said, “We have a financial counselor here that you can talk to.” The scamminess would be hilarious if it weren’t so blatantly aggressive. But all your reasons for saying “no” are right on target.

    I’ve never been a proponent of purchasing a Time Share. Both my in-laws and my parents own Time Share’s, but I really think it’s a waste of money. However, I can always “borrow” their weeks and go on vacation, so I guess not all is lost.

    Tengan mucho cuidado, no se dejen engañar.. esas platicas donde supuestamente te regalan cosas, solo es un gancho para que caigan, siempre duran horas y no te dejan en paz hasta que aceptas
