Today has been the most relaxing day! I am currently sipping some Starbucks while Joshua is on the golf course. I wanted to share with you how we ended up in St. Augustine and tell you about Bluegreen vacations while I have a moment to blog!
Joshua and I booked this trip originally because back in December he got suckered into recieving Bass Pro Gift Cards in exchange for a three night stay with one of Bluegreen’s locations. He loves Bass Pro. What man doesn’t? Being the skeptic I am, I didn’t want to do it, but I let him win the battle and we signed up then and there. We figured we would pick somewhere warm and take a trip with just one another, so St. Augustine sounded perfect! Neither of us had been before.
What is the deal? I know some of you are wondering! You arrive in the evening of your first nights stay. The next day you attend a group presentation for about an hour. Next you are matched with a personal representative where you are given a tour, numbers of what it would cost to own a TimeShare, and where your further questions are answered. After you complete this process, you are free to enjoy the rest of your vacation! We started at 8:45 a.m. and were finished up around 12:30 p.m. The key: The fewer questions you ask, the sooner you get to leave.
Would I do it again? The trip has been great for the price honestly. There’s not been any hidden fees thrown at us in what I seemed to believe sounded like a too good to be true scenario. YOU DO however, have to have a backbone unless you intend on buying into a Time Share before you sign up on one of these trips with Bass Pro. I hate telling people no and sometimes end up feeling sorry for the salesperson so I had to remain quiet and let Joshua be the no sayer! I do think it could be a program if you and your family travel a lot, and you have the finances available. We left with buying anything, but I’d say it’s worth hearing for yourself and getting to vacay at the same time!
P.S. this swimsuit is under $20 and my hat can be purchased through a phone order with Gifted Boutique!
