Anyone signed up or bought Hilton Grand Vacation Resort timeshare ? Any thoughts or input ? The numbers they pitched seemed great but once I took a step back and did my calculations it turned out to be not the greatest “in my prospective”, also did some reading on the reviews and the are mixed. Wondering what’s the input or feedback based on your experience

You can always buy timeshare memberships on the secondary market. I'm sure there are plenty on the market right now with this economy.

I’ll check it out. Thank you thank you

Or just rent someone’s points for the week you want to use it. Often people will rent their confirmed week if the can’t use it at less than the yearly dues (just to get something back), then you don’t have to pay the upfront cost:)

That’s a great idea, that would save me the lifetime commitment and I don’t have to deal with the whole maintenance fees and contract. Any idea where to find one ? Would prefer to stay away from eBay

My in laws have one. I don’t know the details of the economics but the vacation club resorts you have access to mostly suck and are ALWAYS booked up for anything even halfway desirable. They end up converting almost all their points every year into to HHonors points at which point the economics break down.

My friend in-laws going through the same nonsense of everything is booked at least 10 months in advance. They are with the Marriott and they mentioned that the maintenance fees are increasing on yearly bases 10-20%

Willing to sell you points for the year at a Hilton property. Let me know if you’re interested.

Also willing to sell it if you’d prefer going that route

Hi, sorry just seeing this. Would you please message me ?

I work there now it’s an amazing product if you learn to use ur correctly and actually within the Hilton system is is availability especially with the recent acquisition of diamond
Adding a ton of new resorts and they are being brought up to Hilton standards every day

If you have a few target locations just google the city + timeshare rentals:) definitely skip eBay! You can also find deal sites by searching Marriott or Hilton specifically if you want a certain brand / property.

Good luck!

Will do that and save myself the lifetime commitment. Thanks

My pops has 30k Marriott vacation club points in a living trust. The 2br/2ba are nice but you have to book ahead for the desirable properties at least 10 months out. Maintenance fees are like 40-45% of point value so roughly $12k a year.

Did just use it to book ft Lauderdale for 3 nights for $74 total. It has its ups and down but $1k a month on maintenance fees is crazy to me.

Ya the maintenance fees are ridiculous and they increase 10-20% a year

I have a timeshare with vacation village (paid off) that I'm willing to part with for free. I got tired of the same issues that everybody else mentioned. But, let me know if you are interested 🙂

Hi, sorry just seeing this. Would you please message me ?
