Research would probably be the best idea in buying a time share instead of just doing the first one that a big tittied blonde pitches to you.
I'm sure it's a nice place, but booking vacations a year in advance sounds like a huge PITA, as does messing with points, as does being limited on where you can go. Have they ran the numbers to see if they're actually saving anything vs. just picking up the phone a month in advance and booking a room?
