polo towers time share presentation

beware of the brutal 4 hours of intense selling when you do the presentation. We ended up paying $2700.00 for a sampler package only to find out there is only 16 resorts to choose from and just 3 on the east coast where we live. Deception galore so just beware that when you think you get to go they take you down stairs to pressure you with the sampler package. All you will want to do is leave so they wear you down. Polo Towers is wonderful and would suggest the accommodations just say no to any sales pitch no matter what they offer you for a gift.

wow... looking back at astrofan12's last few posts.. what a sarcastic jerk.

People come here for advise about what to do (or not to do) in Vegas, and many are noobs, and your sarcasm is less than funny or appreciated. is your life so boring that you have to troll these posts and chime in on them with irrelevant commentary?

I for one have NEVER been inside a timeshare presentation, and often wondered how all that works.. so THANK YOU for your post Donice

I will say this..

we were scheduled to do one at Planet Hollywood, and I was drinking a Pepsi in a nice glass with a cherry floating in it (no alcohol, as I don't drink anymore), and they had a HUGE fit.. saying I was drinking and that was not allowed, and asked us to leave, but they DID give us some of the gifts (free Buffet or something), so if anyone has a problem "getting away" from the high pressure sales.. I bet if you told them you are drunk.. they would have to stop... yes?

There is a time share program

There are also many excellent webs on time shares.

We have had ours for 12 years - have had excellent lodging (i.e. $150 dollars for 7 days at Tahoe);

additional freebie vacations; and so many weeks to use (i..e. the combo stay at your time share and bank those at Interval International or Trading Place or wherever) are amazingly good deals.

You have to buy a time share that is affordable and you want to go

and if you hate time shares, do not want to save money, and love to pay top dollar - then of course do not go to any time share presentations

but please save us your stories - they are boring.....

and yes, I would not buy one in Vegas due to the low cost of hotels (gamblers usually get freebies so anyone who went to a time share presentation while there is well ......)

I have however stayed at Time Shares in Vegas for 2 weeks at a time (and its great to have a place to call home with a kitchen for that length of time). The cost per day is well free. for a spa jacuzz, steam shower, luxury suite......

There is a time share forum as well where you might want to complain more.

No one made you go to it

so it just shows in a city of sin you went to this.

Ah - next time read a guide book in advance.

thank you for your opinion. I also already own a timeshare which has been a wonderful opportunity for vacations when the kids were young. All I wanted to do is prepare someone that has never been involved in a presentation. Sorry you were bored with my opinion.

Give Astrofan a break on this one. I mean does anyone on the planet think that buying a timeshare directly from the timeshare sharks is a good deal???? Timeshares are not always a bad deal but you should always buy from an existing owner not the timeshare sharks.

" thank you for your opinion. I also already own a timeshare which has been a wonderful opportunity for vacations when the kids were young. All I wanted to do is prepare someone that has never been involved in a presentation. Sorry you were bored with my opinion. "

So you even own a timeshare and were surprised by the tactics they use at the sales presentation?

OP: based on what I have read, you can opt-out in during a 10-14 day cooling off period. I would hit google and arm yourself with some info then contact the time share and get out of it.

Time shares are absolutely horrid. I have several sets of friends that spend a good portion of each year trying to beg people to take the time share off of their hands for pennies on the dollar. There have been several years where they have had zero takers. So needless to say, they get hosed to the tune of several thousand a year for a place they don't even visit.

On the other hand, I frequent these time share presentations almost on a regular basis in Vegas for the free stuff. I don't mind the 4 hour sales pitch because I'm not buying anything no matter the price. Why buy one of theirs when my friends will beg me to take their time share for free?? Time shares should always be purchased on the secondary market if you really want one.
