Bluegreen Vacation Timeshare
They are everywhere, those offers to go on a weekend vacation for free…You just have to sit through a short presentation about their timeshare program. Except it is not just a little presentation, they also have you sit one on one with a sales person who works really hard to sell you a full priced timeshare. We did that many years ago, and we were suckered in to a full price Bluegreen timeshare. Now, I say suckered mainly because we paid full price. After a few years, I started doing more research that I wish I had done in the beginning and found that the same number of points that we purchased could be bought for less than half the price of what we paid. Research is definitely needed prior to purchasing a timeshare, and resale is the best way to go.
We signed up for a free weekend through a booth at Bass Pro Shops in 2005, and were off for our free weekend in Charleston, South Carolina. Unfortunately, we did not get to stay at The Lodge Alley Inn as we thought we were going to. The Lodge Alley Inn is a Bluegreen Resort and is located in the heart of Charleston. We did get to tour the Inn and it was so beautiful, and looked fantastic. However, we had to stay a vehicle ride away from the heart of Charleston at a chain hotel on a not so picturesque marina. We still enjoyed our weekend thoroughly though we were very disappointed by the change of venue.
There are many places you can stay thru Bluegreen resorts, and the membership of Interval International (II) and RCI that you can join as members of Bluegreen. We have gotten the chance to stay all over the United States, and even got to stay at a great little country resort in England for a week. And the additional week(s) vacation through II and RCI are very minimal in cost.
