soooo, supposedly, my drawing at a recent convention won a disney prize pack. I do not have the full details because my husband was not home and she is calling back tomorrow to give us the run down but she mentioned a 7 day disney cruise and something about daytona beach. Then comes the bait and switch. Trust me, I am already rolling eyes at myself for being mildly curious. But taking the kids on a disney cruise was up there on my list.
So she says that when they give out a free vacation, its not really free because you have to pay taxes on it. so their way of getting around that is to offer us a promotional offer that is way better and not something we have to pay taxes for. A registration fee of $500 plus 90 minute timeshare BS seems to be the catch. But she swears that's all we have to pony up in order to have these 2 vacation experiences. And shes going to call back tomorrow to give us the spiel.
I know these timeshare things can sometimes work out and be a killer deal...other times they are a set up and run longer than promised or are filled with aggressive sales pitching and coercing to try to get us to buy something there is no way we can afford or even want. So level with me here...is this worth finding out more on? am I getting suckered into the cliched bait and switch that I will be sorry for? Or is there a genuine chance that the $500 and 90 minute timeshare thing will be worth a free family cruise?
