Bluegreen Resorts in Shallotte, North Carolina - Prizes not as advertised

My husband and I recently did the presentation at Charleston SC. The presentation was very nice and the money involved was not too bad. However we did not purchase the timeshare offer and were "rewarded" two $25.00 Exxon/Mobile gas cards for our time. One of the gas cards we were given as our gift was for $17.00 instead of the advertised $25.00. The hotel room we stayed was supposed to be downtown and it was no where near downtown. the rooms were clean and nice but not in a prime location as advertised. Make's you wonder if other things are not as they are supposed to be!!!

Try the sampler package its low cost and gives you a taste of what full membership brings. There are some resrictions on time and place but you do have a choice of approx 20 resorts.

The only way you will find out if it is right for you is to try it.

Bluegreen Resorts in Birmingham, Alabama - Ahh. bluegreen

I remeber when we signed up, they made fun of us because we are from alabama.. said only state he ever heard of that allows you to pawn your car title and still keep your car.. they all laughed me and husband sat there just speechless. we ve had a good experience with booking a room so far, but we have only stayed at one resort.. we have the "lowest package" due to my husbands job we arent able to take many vacations. I t makes me sad that we just cant afford it any more.. from it being drafted out of our account and maintence fees and now another due amount for taxes on time shares i believe.. we stayed at The fountains in orlando.. it is gorgeous... fantastic pool and the room was so nice.. my kids wanted to move there..

Thank you so much for posting information about BlueGreen Resorts. They are offering very inexpensive package deals to Las Vegas. The deals seemed too good to be true so I read the legalese agreement from the package deal website and discovered it was the BlueGreen...

Bluegreen Resorts in Kingston, Ontario - BlueGreen LasVegas

I recently attended this "90-120 minute" presentation in exchange for 2 "free" nights at their resort. 1) They should disclose the amount of time they need....at least 4 hours (if you show interest, then maybe 5 hours total). It is bad business to say 2 hours of your time, as after 2 hours you have just gone to the warm up presentation, where the guy talks about 911 and how he lost people and guilt trips you to spend extra time and think about your kids...(pathetic) 2) They are all warm, fuzzy and friendly...until you say "no" at the end. My guy said "you just don't get it", as well as "you're lucky we gave you the extra 2 hours" (as it went 4)...when really he should be thanking me for MY TIME. 3) All in all, if a company forces you to sign up on the spot, without allowing you to do your due diligence (on such a big decision), then they are not acting with fairness, honesty and integrity. I didn't even get a handshake at the end. He just walked away mad...lol.

I guess I was just looking for an excuse to go to vegas- but it was well worth it to sit through this presentation for two free nights. the rooms were nice, the hotel was nice, nothing to complain about!

considering a one night at the bellagio is $350. two free nights at bluegreen for 4 hungover hours listening to some guy talk is not a big deal.

and why would you walk that far to the strip? quit being cheap.

get a cab. or ride bluegreen's FREE shuttle bus.

You sound like you work for BlueGreen Henry G. My point was just to advise consumers that 1) you are promised that they only need 2 hours of your time which is completely false (it's more like 4-5 hours).

2) they tell you buy now or never & 3) are extremely rude when you say "no", instead of being polite and courteous. You seemed to miss my point, it has nothing to do with the "free" room nights (which is not really free at all, as they are the ones benefitting by getting scores of people to listen to their 4 hour presentation in exchange for a couple of nights with them in their empty rooms anyways...lol. Did I mention planes fly right over their property, it's a fair walk to the strip and many things don't work (Wi-Fi didn't work, pool was under maintenance, elevators creaked). Anyways, my point was that they are rude, inconsiderate, not honest upfront (no, they don't strap you in a chair, but the presentation does go on for 4 hours)....so everyone that is promised they only want 2 hours of your valuable time----it's a lie.

They actually have to lie to you upfront instead of telling you the ACTUAL time (on the contractual agreement you sign it says 90-120 min).

Anyone that attends one of these presentations clearly knows it's a lie, and that's just bad business from the start. If they have to be duplicitous about that right from the start, one must question what else are they being duplicitous about...(apparently a lot as I've read...)

You've got to be kidding. I suppose they strapped you into a chair and forced you to stay.

What sort of business would these people be running if they simply gave a talk and handed out free room nights to everyone without attempting to sell them something. If the future perhaps you'll not attempt to simply get something for nothing.

Bluegreen Resorts in Gilbert, Arkansas - Lied & misrepresented facts

We were lied to when we purchased our second vacation package. We were told that we would retain the 9000 points from our first package and also be gived 2500 additional points with our second purchase. We found out later that these original 9000 points could only be used at a resort 900 miles away without a $187 transfer fee. Bluegreen was supposed to take our payments out of our bank account. They didn't, and then were trying to charge us a late fee for their incompetance. We have subsequently turned this information over to the Arkansas Attourney General, and to the Missouri Better Business Bureau. Iam quite sure you will be answering to both of these organizations soon.

Well John if you knew what you were doing you would know how to work the system my friend but it appears that you have little or no idea.

I for one will not tell you but let me say we have almost 60000 points and paid less than half your $39k and also have lots more benefits than you would have had. The payback period was very short and even with the mf we save $$$$$ on renting the same accom. (and by the way we do travel the world with it). Soon off to Orlando for a couple of weeks taking into account the mf we will save around $2500.

I hope you do take your $39k and buy a rental property but good luck in making $9000 a year net profit out of it and by the way you will need your expensive vacations to get over the stress factor from trying to rent your property and maintaining it to a high standard never mind the taxes you will have to pay and the marketing costs along with the cleaning costs and insurance ...... you are welcome to it my friend.

We will just continue to enjoy our timeshares no matter where abouts in the world we happen to be, we will cook if we want or eat out we will take family or friends all at a fraction of your costs.

By the way do not think you will be able to enjoy your weekends for free all the time and remember all those presentations, meanwhile we will take as many or if not more weekends than you will be able to stack up in a year for just a few $ on bonus time, not to mention our free week anywhere in the world.

So my friend you may think you have got one over on us timeshare junkies but boy we left you miles behind on getting value for money.

Enjoy you purchase and we will enjoy our stressfree hasslefree vacations for many years to come

Bye dear John

My husband and I purchased our Bluegreen Vacation Club package in April of 08 in Gatlinburg Tn. When we got home we took out a personal loan with a lesser intrest rate.

So Blue green was paid off. I did make me angry when in Oct I received a statement that I owed 700.00 in maintance fees and we hadn't even used the thing. Then in April of 09 we got a statement that we owed 129.00 for vacation dues. I wasnt sure what that was for but paid it.

I have to say we were planning a trip in April and were going to stay in about 4 different resorts but I didn't book them until about February and I was able to get into every one that I ask for. We stayed in a cabin in Gordonsville VA outside the Shenandoah Valley for a couple of days and then went to Williamsburg Va for 3 days and then onto Hershey PA for 4 days then back to Gordonsville VA and stayed in one of their YURT's. I have to say that our stay on every leg of the trip was wonderful. No problems checking in or out.

They were what they had promised. We did go through a sales pitch the first leg of our trip that did take a few hours and yes they did want us to buy more points , but after sitting there for about 4 hours talking with them with me asking some questions that I wanted answers to, we said we would have to think about it and would let them know in the morning. I dont think they were to thrilled about it but what were they going to do. We came in the next morning and told her no that we would use the points we had at the present and if we decided to buy more later I am sure they would be available.

She thanked us for our time and wished us a good day. Could we have not wasted so much time the day before Yes, you bet cha. You can get up and walk out any time you want... I will have to say that I think if you learn how to use the vac club it is a good thing.

My husband has 7 weeks vacation and we have to put in for them in Oct for the next year. So we know when our vacations will be in advance. We still dont know all there is to know but did find out alot the day we spent talking to the saleslady in VA, so it was time well spent. I will say that I am not happy about the bonus points that your suppose to be able to buy.

When I booked my vacation I had to book it all at one time and then had to go back 30 days before I arrived at my first Resort and book my bonus points and they charge a 35.00 fee for every resort you change. Also taking a risk that they wouldn't be available. That I didn't like. I didnt see why we couldn't do it all at one time.

I felt like that was just another way of them making money. I have 6000 points left over and have to use them before April of 2010. Hopefully things will go well now that I know more about how to book. I know this was long but I have read all the negitive things about Bluegreen and I too was mad when I first bought in that all I did was pay and hadn't even used the program.

But I say learn how to use it and then you'll see it may work for you. I am still not 100% sold on the program and how they do business but my trip in April was wonderful and I had no problems.
