I purchased a Shell Vacations Club membership in 2006, at the time of purchase Shell had RCI and Blue Green Timeshares as a partner. I never had a problem booking the location and dates I desired, with minimal lead time when Shell used these two partners. This all...

Shell Vacations Club Vacation Ownership Review

I have been a Shell Vacation member and now that Wyndham took over there appears to be a slow bait and switch. First at Anahem and Vegas sites that used to offer free breakfast. NO Longer! They used to offer free parking to Elite level member at Anaheim ( No Longer)

I bought mine back in 2005 under the same premise (one week per year in Hawaii) and found out 2 months later that my points wouldn't even buy me a weekend in Vegas for my birthday. Well, after 2 months had gone by, I was stuck.

No one ever figures out in the 7 day grace period that they won't be able to use their points like they thought they would.

I am not trying to give my points away. It's really a terrible scam and I cannot believe that they have not legislatively been shut down yet!

No matter how hard you try to not be a prospect, your timeshare company always considers you one.

I owned a Shell Vacation time share and they talked me into converting to the Point System. At the meeting I was very specific and told them I would only convert and pay the extra amount if the points they were showing me for Cruises were per Cabin for two people not...
