Bluegreen and other timeshare sellers use illusion and deception to trick you into purchasing. They make you believe what you spend on vacations yearly is a waste of money. That's a lie because there are hidden things you do not see in the sales pitch. Let me highlight what you're missing between the lines.

1) There is no maintenance fees or a contract with your yearly spending nor customer service issues.

2) EXAMPLE: If your monthly payment is let say 125.00 monthly. Only 35.00 is going toward your payment and the rest is paid toward your interest. (Bad move) you will be paying three times the cost of your time share after its all said and done. ( that's with any loan) those who know interest earn it, those who don't pay it.

3) if maintenance fees are not paid. Your privileges are suspended and interest is added until the unpaid balance is paid and it is reported to the credit bureau affecting your credit and score. There is only one advantage to buying if you do buy and you have fair credit. (You can receive a credit score boost, because your credit report will show a mortgage being paid on your credit report. That's it).

4) Bonus points and regular points are usually mixed when they are used by you. EXAMPLE: They will pull from your new points earned instead of using points that are about to expire. When this happen you could lose your expired points along with you newly earned points. Make sure you are sure which stock pile of points they are applying to your vacation and check your account monthly.

5) unless you buy there high end package you will rarely get your dates and a resort where you want to spend your vacation. Eventually the herd you into a lane as a non user stuck with a timeshare you can not use and you end up upside down when you try to sell, settling for pennies on the dollar if you are lucky enough to sell and you will still owe them money that you will pay or ruin your credit. Interest is also charged on the unpaid balance. TRANSLATED: You will still have paid them what they wanted for the time share and still retain possession of the asset.

2) If you have to finance to purchase Bluegreen, and it could be a problem, you probably should not be buying. 3) Would you expect any company to do otherwise ?

5) I started out with 7,000 points and had some great vacations. If you learn how to use it, you will enjoy it.

That is correct. They will also tell you that they are an owner when they are not.

They will tell you that you can use bonus nights anytime, but that is a lie. You can only maybe and I mean maybe use them in an off season or a resort that is not booked often. You can never use them in myrtle beach in the summer. You can get better cruise discounts on " vacations to go".

They know this all but they lie to you. They train their employees to lie or not know any better. They will sell you a cheap package and when you come back for owner orientation they will try to sell you a more expensive package because you cannot book a vacation unless you are a silver member or above. That is $30k plus.

These are all facts. They are liars trust me.

Untrue. I have friends who are getting bonus time in Branson, over the busiest week of the year, 4th of July.

That is just one example. Learn how to use what you chose to purchase, just as I have done.
