Deception is the key for this firm. I signed up to view the property at a golf tournament in TN.
The sales rep led me to believe we would be staying the resort for $99. I would receive $75 in rebates just to listen to the presentation. I informed the sales rep that I, my wife and my two teenage children would go to the resort. It turned out only one room was reserved for my family of four in a cramp hotel room, but for $100 I could upgrade and stay at the Bluegreen Resort " Mountain Loft".
The $99 vacation now cost me $199. Due to the presentation that took 2hours, 30 mins, plus another 2 hours to sign contracts and view "additional benefits", the vacation time turned out to be about 8 hours. There is no pressure in the sale overtly but, they'll find any way to get you to commit to the vacation club. I recommend reading the Pennsylvania AG's consent decree.
I had 10 days to terminate the agreement and sent the appropriate letter to the corporate headquarters with return receipt. The notification was received by the firm on August 09, 2012. I called August 28, 2012, to get the status of my refund and was told I failed to return the owner's kit.
I wasn't aware the kit needed to be returned and since BlueGreen had my phone number and e-mail address it just confirmed for me that BG is a shoddy, disreputable firm. Consumers beware.
