My husband and I bought into the Shell Vacations Club several years ago and it has been one of the biggest mistakes of our lives. We were never given our "sign on bonus trip" since the sister company didn't exist and they only sold us 2,500 points with the promise that it would give us a fantastic week long vacation in a 5 star resort.
We were told that if we saved our precious points for two years we could vacation for two weeks. What a deal!!! Or so we thought until I tried to cash in our points...I soon discovered that 2,500 points barely covers the cost of airplane tickets for two let alone a weeks vacation for four. We have fought with Shell Vacations for years to let us out of our contract...even after they admitted their sales person was wrong in misleading us and they were sorry we didn't get our "sign on bonus trip".
Then to further add insult to injury they send us a nice letter that informs us that they had a security breach at one of their offices and we may be victim's of identity theft. Well here's hoping our identity gets stolen and the thief takes over our payments. I will NEVER recommend this company!! They are crooks and have no business owning a license to sell anything.
Shame on them! BOOOOO!
