    A saw on someones website that they were giving thier guests an option to sit through a 90 minute timeshare presentation in order to recieve 50% off hotel at an AI. Has anyone of you heard of this or know about this? I have searched everywhere on the forum and found nothing.

    I don't want to put my guests through that torture yet now that I thinking about it it wouldn't be a bad deal for us if we had the time before our guests arrived.

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks!

      Here is the website for one of the options!

      I believe it is restricted by resorts. So if your site is El Dorado or Azul It might be worth it for the bride and groom because the stay is typically longer.

        Yikes! I'm not sure that sounds like a good idea. Is the presentation before they go on the trip or after they get to the resort? Those timeshare presentations always last over the time allotted and the people are so pushy and not fun. Do you really want your guests to feel that pressured and put off during your wedding? And do they really get 50% off the AI... or is it some coupon type junk that just adds up to 50% off?

          If you truly get 50% off your stay, and it's something you could do before your actual vacation, then it may be worth looking into. The 50% off and the extra benefits like 20% off at the spa could make it worth your time, but I'd be very skeptical and check it out thoroughly before committing to anything. And if I had to go to the presentation while I was actually on vacation, that would be a deal breaker for me. I don't want to waste my vacay time listening to their sales pitch.
