My wife and I were on vacation a few years ago down in Destin Florida where we had a Condo rented for a week. While at the resort we were approached by a staff member and we were offered a free $50.00 gift card and a free dinner if we would take one of those Time Share Tours and we bit. The nice lady took us on a tour of the condo room we would be buying or she thought.
After the tour we were taken to a room filled with tables and other prospective buyers that reminded me of a new car dealership. They were asking $16,000.00 and they really put on a good pitch until I said that was too much money so the nice lady lowered the price down to $12,000.00.
Not only would we have to pay the 12K but the yearly maintenance fee was $850.00 a year plus taxes and insurance.
I finally told the lady we were only here for the $50.00 gift card and free dinner, after I said that the nice lady turned into a complete ass. I will not tell the rest because I sort of got out of control but I received my freebies.
The same thing happened to my wife and I last year in Charleston South Carolina. We were walking down the street in the historic district when we were approached by two young ladies I thought were college students. We were offered a $50.00 Bass Pro Shop gift card if we would take a one hour Time Share Tour and of course I accepted. We also explained to the ladies were not going to buy anything and the only thing I wanted was the gift card and they agreed. I will not tell the part where I was escorted out of the condo by security but I still received my gift card.
