Bluegreen Resorts in Meriden, Connecticut - Blue green won't return our money!

We vistited bluegreen resort at Hershey Pa. after 2 hours of promises we bought in, For 1200 points and it only cost us $200. down payment and $360. a month for six months.That was the sevice fee all we had to do was pay extras for are trips. We were going to get a cruise and a yacht trip for a week and 3 free vactions with R.I.C resorts, a deed in are names for a villia in the fountain hotel in Orlando FL. Plus a bunch of other things and 200 extra points per vaction. But when we got home. we got a call that they losted are bank reciptes and would'nt be able to get the nexts payment from the bank. So after think about how good everything was going to be I started to look into the promises they made which by the way turn out to be as hard as traveling on 1-95 @ rush hour we dicide not to send them are info again. because after all that was personal info that just up and walked away. we also asked them to return are money since we had 30 days to change are minds but we have yet to recive any money back and that was last july. I guess the saying is true if it sounds to good it more than likely is.

Bluegreen Resorts in Thorntown, Indiana - Very skeptical

I was suppose to attend the 2 hour seminar tonight, but was told to reschedule because my husband was not with me. OK, that's fine so I came home to look up information about this company and saw most reviews are very negative and there are a lot of pissed off people. Now I am having second thoughts about even attending the "meeting". If I go, I am suppose to get a free 4-night cruise on Royal Carribean. Of course, we need to pay for flight to Florida, pay the port-fee and drinks on the ship. After reading so many bad reviews I am wondering if I should forget the whole thing. Anyone do the free cruise deal?

I've been getting calls non stop from these Bluegreen people for the last three days. When I called back today, a young professional smooth talker type told me that I had "won" a similar 4-day package.

Now, being a person who hasn't won anything since a cake in the 3rd grade I instantly became suspicious. Is it possible that I actually won a vacation in a contest I never applied for? Why are they so anxious to get a hold of me to give me something for free?

Nothing is free, kids. After reading all of these horrible reviews I'm going to go ahead and save a tank of gas and skip the meeting.

Tina,

Hi! Better to loose $158.00 then put up with this headache and heartache the rest of your life.

They are trying to scare you...they should have given you a paper that states what they are giving you for free in exchange for you attending.

Check that over...there might be more info...I wish we had checked before we went...they are banking..literally on your fear and your busy life, and your kids to think you won't do the research...you are better off not going...book a weekend away and be glad it will be paid for and you are done! Good luck!!!

I understand, we are scheduled to camp at one of their VA resorts very soon. We have already paid for the weekend ($80). We have to sit in on a sales presentation suppose to be 90-120 minutes.

However, after reading the reviews yesterday on this site we are deciding to cancel even though we will loose our $80. We have 3 children and do not want to be pressured and "kidnapped" as reported in a couple of the responses for 4 hours.

According to the rules if we cancel within 72 hours, they will not charge us additional $78 for a no-show. I'm skeptical about this for we can't loose $80 (but are willing to) but we can't loose an additional $78. I will fight it if they charge us.

We have been Bluegreen members for about a year now. So far we love it! (We have 18,000 pts every other year.) We had no problems booking at the resorts we want. The condo's and facilities like the pools and the grounds are BEAUTIFUL! The staff bend over backwards...

I AM STILL WAITING FOR ONE OF YOU WHO LOVE BLUEGREEN TO BUY MY POINTS.

IN THE MEANTIME I HAVE FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE FTC, & ATTORNEY GENERAL.

BY THE WAY, FOR THE UNHAPPY READERS, THERE WAS A CIVIL SUIT BROUGHT AGAINST THEM , AND IT WAS WON.

HATERS UNITE. IF IT WAS ANY GOOD, PEOPLE WOULD BE CONTACTING US FOR OUR POINTS.

My husband and I bought a Bluegreen timeshare in Gatlinburg in 2006. We had no idea we were staying at a timeshare but they offered us our stay free to come and listen to the presentation. We went and finally they conned us with no maintenance fees till 2008, our stay...

You have no other blemishes on your credit because deadbeat financing is the only way YOU will get a loan.

BEWARE-Bluegreen Resorts quickly gives unclear information to get you to sign up!

Be careful before signing! After sitting through a two-hour presentation you will be so tired of people talking TO you and AT you that you begin to listen without fully hearing the details. I just signed up yesterday and they told me that it will take 30-45 days before I can make a reservation. Guess what?? After that time frame I will have entered the blackout period and I will not be able to book until September! After I will have paid seven months! By the way...there are no cancellations allowed! Run away as fast as you can!

Timeshare is good if you know how to use it. First of all, they do not hold a gun to your head.

They do not "make" you stay for a 3 hour presentation. You are an adult - hopefully, you can get up and leave. Dont blame them later. Secondly, read you documents - dont sign something you havent read.......simple.

Third, read everthing you are given about making a reservation and how the system works. If you dont understand - call the resort operations people - not the sales people. The sales people have done their job and will not take their time to explain. They are paid on sales.

The operations people are going to serve you in the future - treat them nicely. Dont be a *** because you bought something you now dont want. There are lots of perks for timeshare owners who know how to use what they bought. Like weeks for $199!

Learn to use it. Pay your fees on time - you agreed to be a member - be a good one.

read the contract. blackout dates are listed twice and they read it out loud to you before you sign.

don't be a fool. don't be be mad because you signed up for a program that has rules and regulations, if they didn't, idiots like you would screw everything up. it's a time-share, when you reserve a date, don't be a mindless punk and cancel. other people are relying on you keeping your date.

it makes it run smoothly.

i've been an owner for 2.5 years and if you plan ahead and have half a brain, it works pretty well. a lot of times you won't get your first choice of room but don't be a greedy, you're on vacation, shouldn't be in your room much anyways.

Yeah, we signed and now, we regret it.. we see things now that we didn't see when we signed on in 2005. Bluegreen vacation resorts is a rip off. They have highly trained sales people which will tell you everything but the truth. They talk a "good story"...

I am not writing a complaint about Bluegreen. I have read some of the reviews below and I am stuned. I have owned since 1999 and have LOVED mine. If you know how to use your points you can vacation more than a week out of the year. We vacation 4 times out of the year...

I, too, am a happy bluegreen owner. I started with 8000 annual points and did run into some difficulties.

But I studied and planned in advance (most jobs want you to plan your vacation at the first of the year), and was able to get most everything I wanted within a week or two of the dates I preferred.

I have upgraded twice so that I can vacation more. And, I am finding that with the bad economy I can get anywhere, anytime I want as long as I book it 10-11 months out.

We recently sat through the 120 minute presentation, and the sales person did a great job of hiding the "fine print". Fortunately, when I said "no", my wife and I didn't get the high-pressure, guilt pitch.

Maybe I was firm enough that they understood that my no mean no. We were also fortunate that we were given our $75 with no hassles for sitting through the presentation. I am very leary of the sales pitch that says, "for today only". That is a dead giveaway that something isn't quite right.

Now that I have read all the reviews, I'm certainly glad that we walked away. For those of you who are considering this "deal", I would be very, very cautious.

What a load of sadoes you lot are, moaning because you cant get availability when you folks we have NEVER had problems with availability.

Who in there right mind buys a timeshare as an investment to make $$ (god theres on born every miniute) you of all people should lose the lot if you ever think that time share is there to make YOU a packet. It is for the enjoyment of taking vacations you ***

By the way the only people making money out of you lot will be the lawyers (god bless them ----- give them your money so the can pay their M/F LOL )

Get a life and yes i am looking forward to going to New York on my points very soon
