One of the lies that we were told, was that we could camp at Good Sams Campgrounds for 50% off. We are Good Sams members and currently get 10% off at Good Sams Parks.
Good Sams Parks have never heard of Bluegreen, and Bluegreen customer representatives have never heard of Good Sams Campgrounds.
As a matter of fact, if you call a bluegreen customer representative and ask any question concerning RV's, they can't answer it. Bluegreen does not have an "RV Package", but they will sure sell you one!!

When we became members, we bought the "RV" package of 3000 points per year and were told that we could use these points for Coast to Coast campgrounds. Well, if you look at the list of Coast to Coast campgrounds in the US, there are very few in places we would want to go.
We were given Bluegreen Encore rewards credit cards, and the balance of out membership charged to that. The card earns points that we can use to pay maintenance fees and Dues. They made the statement that we would have enough points from purchasing the membership to pay our "dues" for the next two years. Well, that statement was true, but misleading to someone that doesn't know the difference between dues and maintenance fees.
The truth is, the rewards points are worth 1%, or 5,000 points is worth $50.00. We paid $8,500 for the membership, and our dues and maintenance fees annually are $609.00. We can camp 12 nights per year on 3,000 points, and we pay $609.00 per year in fees, so we are paying about $50.00 per night to camp with Bluegreen, which is about what it would cost to camp without Bluegreen, except that we paid $8,500.00 for the "privilege" So, where is the benefit?
Every "benefit" you have as a bluegreen member has a fee associated with it. So, do your homework before you buy a Bluegreen membership.
