If You Buy a Timeshare, I Have a Bridge for Sale Too!

Why the hell do people buy timeshares? I mean you pay anywhere from $5000 to $150,000 for these properties that you can only stay at 1 to 2 times yearly...oh and sometimes you can buy a fractional one and only be allowed to go there every other year! Then when you get sick of going to your new purchase probably after the 1st or 2nd year if you want to go somewhere else you have to pay a transfer fee to transfer your week so you can enjoy a new destination. On top of all that crap you have to pay a yearly maintenance fee for the ownership privilege that you 'had to have'. Am I crazy or Am I missing something here? The only thing that you own are the bills!

What if I showed you a that there IS a better solution? By the sounds of it it doesn't seem all that hard to make happen. Anyhow... I was introduced to this company for a friend that was in the business. They are the marketing arm of a 21 year old company (I can't mention the name) that has been selling high priced memberships to luxury vacation resorts to the 'well-off' people of the US, Canada and Mexico for, you guessed it...21 years. I say 'well-off' because I thought rich or upper middle class or high class didn't sound right...you get my drift? Let's continue...these memberships would sell for $15,000-$25,000 depending on the type of resort quality that you wanted how many weeks you wanted per year etc. kind of like a timeshare right? In 1999 they opened it's doors and revamped the way this company sold their memberships. The new cost for these memberships is now $1595 for a 3 year and $3095 for a LIFETIME membership. Drastically reducing the cost of this product and implementing a commission plan so people like you and me could afford something like this and allowing us to earn from selling other people this same high quality product. Not only earn but earn BIG. Each sale earns you $500 on the 3 year membership and $1000 on the life time membership!

They were able to drop the price so dramatically due to three reasons.

1. The ability to market this in such a way that the 'company' sold hundreds of thousands more memberships due to the internet and it's explosive growth.

2. They were able to sell these because it's a high demand product (who doesn't want a vacation AND an inexpensive 5 star resort no less)

3. They've turned ALL members of this company into enthusiastic sellers and marketers due to the high quality luxury resorts they secure, the top-notch service they give, and the high commissions payplan they offer.

Lets do the math here. If you want to take your family on a week long vacation to a ski resort anywhere you are going to pay roughly $189 per night per room or maybe say $249 for a two bedroom that's $1743 for the week one time! If you don't want to get caught in the timeshare trap then do your research and for God sakes don't buy a timeshare it's only a big pain in the...
