Tyler and Sasha M. faced so much pressure from their timeshare salesman that they were almost pressured out of the purchase. The couple went through a grueling timeshare sales pitch that lasted nearly seven hours, during which they could not see the rest of their family that they were on vacation with or much of anything outside the saleroom and property tour.
We hope the couple’s written account below will help shed some light on the mischievous sales tactics used by timeshare salesmen. The names of people and places have been changed and/or redacted for privacy reasons.
“We were presented with so many great perks along with the timeshare purchase itself that it was hard to say no. We were on the fence for a while, and the salesman kept leaving the room and coming back with more perks and stuff to get us to buy. We were pressured in so many ways that we were about to just throw in the towel and decide not to make any deal.”
However, the couple eventually purchased the timeshare once they considered all the “freebies'' and false promises made along with their timeshare. They were even promised a “free trip to Hawaii” that they never received after asking several times about this free offer once they’d purchased the timeshare.
Tyler and Sasha were able to use their timeshare for the first couple of trips, but they soon ran into the same problem that many timeshare owners similarly face--not enough points!
“During the time frame that we were able to take those few trips, we weren’t able to successfully book without pulling advance points from the following year. Which in turn caused us not to be able to go on another trip while using our package that we already pay monthly fees for!”
Tyler and Sasha soon found themselves caught in the neverending “timeshare trap”, where they constantly had to “upgrade” or “purchase more points” for the vacation they needed for their family.
“Any trips thereafter, due to no available points (unless we purchased additional points) or lack of points for the trip, were paid for solely out of our pockets, which is obviously even more stressful. We’ve even lost several weeks due to our family being too busy or it simply not working with our schedules.”
The couple has plans to save for their child’s college tuition and other future expenses (future trips, retirement, etc.) After seeing an advertisement for Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG), on social media, the couple decided they would give the timeshare cancellation process a try and see where it might get them. With assistance from WFG, Tyler and Sasha have happily escaped their timeshare trap and can hopefully plan a vacation again soon!*
