So i got the call today that Bluegreen was celebrating their 49th? anniversary by giving out 4 day/3 night all expense paid stays in hotels they were affiliated with and a 4 day/3 night expense paid cruise as well.
I entertained the thought for a bit while he listed off all the potential places and fun i'd be having. Asked me had I ever been to St. Petersburg FL before, shortly after having confirmed that my sweepstakes entry was pulled from a St. Petersburg movie theater drawing ...
go figure. Then It gets to the part where I apparently have to front money to reserve a spot at one of the 2hr tour/showings of their properties (where im sure they try to sell me something), but supposedly the cost of the package is well worth it. I paused, he asked me "does that sound ok?" "what is it youre not sure about?", i told him i wasnt sure about fronting the money when i had no idea or plan to travel just yet, and then I was promptly hung up on. I have to think I dodged a bullet there.
Now my only complaint, really, is that it was a rude gesture and gave insight to their *** poor business practices. I guess I wasnt falling into the trap and was wasting their time so I was pushed away?
Im considering taking it out on places that affiliate with them since I cant very well do anything to them directly. I dont even know if they really exist.
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
Monetary Loss: $10.
Preferred solution: The company needs to find a better way to advertise its properties. The amount youre scamming people for probably barely pays the salary of the guys you have in the call center doing the scamming. And no property was sold!.
Bluegreen Resorts Pros: Cared enough to call.
Bluegreen Resorts Cons: Only cared about my deposit.
