I had an "owners presentation today. Well, let's say I had an insight to a great money making program for BG Corp..

To get back into TP you are asked to buy more points. A small matter of 30K to get back int the program. After a great deal of chatter, the offer went to $6,500 and no additional point purchase.

My bone of contention was the inability to secure reservations at their resorts ( I am a "silver member).

I mentioned the last BG Rotogravure mailing and it''s mention of three lovely resorts. I tried to book at all three, any time any room, for the rest of the year.

Guess what? No availability. The salesperson in his attempt to show me the resort time was available, used his computer and log in (with TP). How about that.

He showed me that BG is doing the same thing as RCI.

They are holding back inventory and allowing the people who contribute $$$$ to have a leg up on the rest of poor long suffering average Joes. Perhaps BG should be held up to the same principles as was RCI.

I have read about 50 BlueGreen complaints and the user called UK ends up commenting on almost all of these complaints. You know, it seem that UK likes to say that he is not a representative of BlueGreen.

I actually believe him. Only because BlueGreen makes a point of hiring people who gives their a positive image. UK certainly doesn't do that. UK likes to insult people and give them advice at the same time.

If he had any since, He could say something nice and offer good advice. Instead, he insults and then tells you to go to Yahoo to find information on how to use Bluegreen points. Why would anyone listen to him after he laughs at you and calls you a fool.

If UK is a BlueGreen employee, then it is easy to see the contempt that he feels for their consumers. If he is not an employee of BlueGreen, then he has waaaayyy to much time on his hands.

KA you are wrong out of 61 resorts only 13 of them are "weeks" and these are associate resorts . An Associate resort means that the do not belong to BGVC but they do have some inventory , how much you can look up in the Public offering multi site book you were given.

These rest of the owners at these 13 resorts are still fixed or flex week owners. there are a few in NC and a few on the gulf the rest are FL gulfside , but once Bluegreen at Tradwinds opens up on St Petes that will have that coast sorted

When you add up the availabilty at these resorts you will find that over 90% of the iventory is points based and hense a 2 day Min stay (3 days over a holiday )

You mention not knowning about fees .... how did you expect the resorts to be maintained or pay the staff for the next 999 yrs?

Come on nobody forced you into signing and how many shops have a 1 time only offer all year ,year in and year out

The problem is, if you dont have enough points for a "mandatory 1 week stay", then you are immediately eliminated from using many of the properties. I personally would not have signed up because the properties I intended to use the most are like this.

The package that I paid $9K for are selling on Ebay for $35! This is because so many people are trying to get out of their homeowners fees-also not mentioned when I signed up.

At the sales presentation, they force you to make an immediate desision or else you will loose the ability to get their "special offer". I will be contacting the attorney general in Tennessee where I got rooked into this thing!

yes if you let TP go then you have to buy more points, a $49 renewal fee is not mega $$$

Sorry but I cant get my head around you never being able to get your reservation since you are silver you can wait list a full month ahead of a charter owner.

To be honest if you are not prepared to plan that far in advance then why did you buy any kind of timeshare in the first place.

we have been charter owners then silver now gold and never had any problem with reservations even though we have to travel in the high peak summer period.

Not all units are in the BGVC if they were then all the sales force would be without a job since as you well know each and every point is linked to a deeded week/resort/unit.

The units BG rent out belong to bg the developer (unsold inventory and units that owners have not paid their fees on) and they can do what ever they want with them in the same way you can.... so they rent them to make some cash.

Instead of complaining on here look for the happy owners and lean from them .... then the penny will drop at last
