I was let their hard-sell tactics convince me to buy a time-share on BlueGreen Vacations (I heard the pitch at their Hotel in Orlando: "The Fountains". I regret every year what I did. If could have been vacationing with my family renting via other venues twice a year for one week each, and will be saving money.
Reserving with Bluegreen, at least that you are retired, it a hassle. In order to get something decent, you need to book months in advance. The option to exchange the points don't even look into it. For example: For a cruise for 10000 points I get $400 towards the value of the cruise via Bluegreen. What a rip-off.
The points are "use it or lose it" so you better be very good at planning your future vacations.
BOTTOM LINE: I regret becoming a member every single time I need to deal with Bluegreen Vacations (Customer service or WebSite).
