We are coming down at the end of March to do some research. Looking to move there soon and this is the first of many trips before doing so. Therefore trying to keep the cost down as much as possible. My husband is in sales so the sales pressure doesn't affect us and we don't mind spending 3 hours listening to help cover our costs. I do know of some people that make this an affordable way to travel. We just have never done it! Any suggestions on the best ones to visit with the best promos is appreciated!

I second this idea. I can listen to anything for three hours if the price is right. Anyone know of any?

Time shares are an affordable way to travel? We've had time shares over the years; there's the initial purchase, there's the annual "maintenance" fees and some have reconditioning fees (updating, painting and furniture). Then if there is an exchange needed, you join RCI, II or other resort traders that you pay annual membership dues and then the exchange fee, which is generally higher if you're leaving the states.
From what I have experienced, it's cheaper to check with your local travel agent to get a package - flight and resort. Some of the time shares charge 20 to 30 thousand...Good luck If you enjoy timeshare presentations, then you know they never accept "no" for an answer

No one mentioned actually BUYING a Timeshare, though.
I think she is referring to listening to a sales pitch to score free Disney tickets or a weekend stay at a local hotel

No one is purchasing a timeshare...that would be silly since we will be moving there soon. Actually we just sold ours last year. I really don't care about the tickets etc. I just want a cheap nice hotel. With the impending move it is important to keep the costs of these research trips down. I am sure there will be many.

She was not referring to the purchase of a timeshare - in the context of what she wrote she was talking about hearing their sales pitch so she could get a good deal on a hotel.
Has no one ever done this?
I sat through a time share presentation in Myrtle Beach and we got free tickets for four to Medieval Times.
I guess I could google time share promos.
