Question for you:
Are boobs and hands polarly charged, thus causing the inevitable joining of the two? If so are some breasts simply charged backwards?

On a scale from 0 to 24...wait, 3 to 24, where 6 is the lowest and 12 is the highest, how freaking high re you right now?

She's got you high, and you don't even know yet.

www.tradingplaces.com, www.intervalworld.com, or just post here or some time share forum there will be hundreds of time share owners that will rent their weeks to you. Craiglist is good also.

You should get yearly invitation to meetings, go and complain, my time share group is very vocal, maintenance is always a concern. Although it has gone up, it's still extremely low compare to the market avg, which I've heard is around 800-900/yr

I think I've seen some timeshares like mariott vacations in Vegas. So do I have to look for specific programs to rent from? Can I only rent on the week the owners have it?

That's why it's $900 now b/c everyone is from out of town and no one is flying there to complain. Mine is from Vegas and most owners are from Cali, short drive for them. I haven't been to any of the meetings myself but I do read the newsletters.

Whenever I go to any resort or Vegas they always try to sell us this timeshare cr@p. They usually target people on the streets that are a couple and the first thing they ask is if you're married, if you're not they leave you alone for some reason.

I'm surprised why any of you would even think its a great deal.

Why would you visit the same place every year? Some say you can swap timeshare areas but even then a hotel is much cheaper and less of a hassle.

This timeshare is a major big scam but you idiots keep falling for it. Almost as big as those Paypal or Nigerian scams out there.

They give you a free BigMac meal and you buy a $5K timeshare from them.

Only thing a timeshare is good for is siting through the bullshit pitch and collect free incentives/vouchers/drinks from the hotel .

Depends on how you look at it, a week in Hawaii will cost you $2000 at a semi decent place, still it has a bed, bathroom and tv. Nothing like a timeshare resort, which is like a luxury condo. When I brought my timeshare, maintenance is only $300, exchange fee was $100 so for $400. I got to stay at a two bedroom luxury suite. I was too cheap to pay for hotels in Hawaii, with timeshare, I was visiting nearly every year. Plane ticket was $350/pp in Feb and March, hotel was $400, car rental was $350, with food it was less than a hotel stay at doubletree. So it made a lot of sense.

So no, it is not a scam, the only problem is, maintenance fees continues to go up, exchange fees goes up. The value of timeshare goes down and everyone is giving away their timeshares. You can get a nice timeshare anywhere for just the maintenance fee without the commitment. I've enjoy my timeshares but don't recommend it. When I brought mine over 10 years ago, there is no way you can get anything for $500/week. It was great at that time. To make things worse, my current employer has $199/week timeshare deals without buying one. None of that was available more than 10 years ago.
