My hubby and I got away for a few days in the Great Smokies last week. While we were there we were approached by a fellow offering us free tickets to one of the best shows in Pigeon Forge if we would go and listen to a 90-minute timeshare presentation. We went and we received the tickets as promised, but instead of 90 minutes they kept us there for 6 hours high pressure selling us on the timeshare. Just goes to show you, nothing is really free.

There is always a catch it seems. Glad you at least got the tickets after all of that.

It was a great show but that was the main event of our trip after using up those 6 hours on the timeshare promo.

@clrumfelt 6 hours is a long time to put up with that

I agree nothing is free. Me and my ex-husband had this happen to us in Florida we was offered free breakfasr at this place and come to find out they was trying to get us to buy a timeshare also but we didn't.

We didn't buy it either, and I'm so glad we didn't invest in that. Looked the company up online when I got home and found out they lied about lots of things and had some horrible reviews.

@clrumfelt Yeah never good to invest in something we know nothing about.

I have been through some of the timeshare high pressure selling and no question its terrible. We have sat all day after being told it would be the morning only. The last time I said to my husband don't think free dinner was worth it. We were on vacation and they took a lot of time that we could have been sightseeing.

We felt the same way about giving up our limited vacation time to the timeshare pitch for 6 hours. It was an education that's for sure.

There were very bad reviews online about that company. People lost a lot of money with them.
