    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    According to expedia, celebration villas would run me $1232 for the week, vistana is $1890 versus $800 for the timeshare. They are not good deals, sorry.

    Girl you trying too hard in the wrong places. On the main website for celebration suites, a superior two bedroom suite that sleeps up to 10 during the week of July 4th, is only $145 a night. Expedia was even cheaper, so idk where you're getting your numbers from. Obviously idk when you're vacationing, but I doubt it's on a date more expensive than the week of the 4th.

    I won't comment on Vistana, as when I would stay there it was on my dad's dime when he had an RCI timeshare. I wouldn't be surprised if it was at least 200+ a night, as it's fucking amazing. I never bring it up unless people want a benchmark for accommodations in Orlando; they are really just that memorable and amazing. If it wasn't for first hand knowledge of what these timeshares and hotels look like, I wouldn't even still be responding lol.

    That is their smaller 2 br, but let's do that one: They have a $11 dollar a day resort fee for that place. (145+11)*7=1092. So still almost $300 more than the timeshare.

    Wait, 800 for the timeshare is for what? Is that what you're paying during your visit for cleaning or what not, or is that yearly?

    $800 is the yearly for the maint fee.

    My deal didn't end up happening, but you can buy the deeds for a dollar from people trying to get rid of them, so yeah, the first year you are paying $801, then $800.


    Note: Maint fees are different depending on where you go, so it takes awhile to find the right one. I probably won't be able to get one for awhile as I have to start looking again.

    For 1 week? Is the week set or flexible? And what are you paying when you get there?

    $1 sounds too good to be true to buy in, while at the same time if it is true, why are they selling their $800 a year time share? I feel like I'm missing key information in something that everyone would do, but most people don't.

    They're selling their $800/yr timeshare for $1 because timeshares are fucking impossible to sell otherwise and families grow out of them.

    It goes from being a slightly more affordable vacation location to being an $800/yr tax on you having tried to save money.

    Sounds like one of those free vacation offers. I mean sure occasionally you will find one that is more or less legit and awesome but most the time their is something not quite right

    Random Win: The irl Fuck Ya thread

    The old saying "if it's too good to be true it probably is" definitely applies in this case. Honestly this is something that shouldn't be taken lightly and every pro/con including possible financial instability from both the state purchasing in and personal should be taken into consideration.

    I know my husband and I have loosely discussed buying into Disney Vacation Club but it's agreed that will only happen after we are debt free which we are working towards and have a home first. We know several who own into it and it will likely fit our lifestyle well and would have the option to sell our points we don't use but in my example everything would need to align to make sense.

    I think there's way better options as stated above but being flexible might be key. Also being aware what events are happening can greatly affect costs also.

    Unfortunately it's not. It's usually a mix of visiting parents, helping friends, looking at houses, cleaning the apartment, picking up the yard, and whatever else I'm not thinking of. I don't get a full day of video games more than once every two months or more.

    This. I know three people who bought them on resale (all under $1000), it's not a scam. People sell them for cheap because they don't want to pay the maint anymore. The $1 sales after the ones that people can't afford the payment this year and want to get out fast.

    Go to sellmytimesharenow.com and just put a $1 for Orlando to see. Site is completely legitimate. The biggest complaints you'll read are from the sellers thinking their timeshare are worth more or upset on how long it takes to sell them.



    The "biggest" fallback on buying resale is you won't get the perks they offer for the new sales. For example, wyndham has a perk that allows you to use extra points for travel and tickets. You can't use that perk if it is a resale. But the bottom line is you pay a buck and you get that week every year for w/e it's particular maint fee is.


    I'm in the market for one in the summer (ideally July) and a $800 or less fee. They are hard to find but they pop up now and then. Just got to keep looking.

    Look at Ksandra, preying on the poor and unfortunate like a boss. As an American, buying someone's real estate for a buck is a win, no matter how you slice it.
