Even if hotel points aren't an option...never buy a timeshare.

Timeshares are a scam, steer away from them.

Hotel points. Haven’t paid a dime in years. One good thing about this gig.

Don’t do it.... “I’m so glad I bought that timeshare!” - said no one, ever

funny

Yeah op, horribly posed question - there is a ton of space between only points and bought a timeshare...

I own 2 timeshares. Once you get the hang of them not bad. But mine are paid off as well. So for me was a good investment. I rent out for a week and pay my taxes and fees. That leaves 4 weeks for me to use. I have points not weeks and that makes a difference.

Also check eBay lost of good deals on there

People will give you their timeshares if you will take over their annual dues. You can check out a great user website/forum called TUG- timeshare users group.

Usually I try to live in the moment, but other times things come to mind from the past that make my life feel like it could be a soap opera. For example, I crushed on a guy from school for a few years, and one night as a young adult, found us both drunk alone in my apartment. A few months later he texted me and said he just got married at the courthouse and that I should be in the wedding party when covid was over. It shouldve happened by now but it hasnt yet…👀🙂
