We just received a phone call from Diamond resorts. 2 years ago we discontinued our club membership that used points to trade to other resorts. It was a very lengthy and painful process that was only successful since I used certified, registered mail, numerous phone calls, and finally a very nasty post to social media. We did keep our deeded week at our home resort that is owned by Diamond resorts. According to this phone call, they have a new program for owners of deeded properties that would allow us to see banked properties available for trade. They want us to attend a 2-1/2 hour long dinner/presentation and state that the new owners have signed a "pledge" that they will not use high pressure sales tactic. Has anyone out there heard this presentation? What's the catch?

If you had a lengthy and painful process with them then why would you want to have any further voluntary dealings with them. And high pressure sales is sort of open to interpretation. How good could the dinner actually be to have to listen to a sales talk?

What's the catch? You're going to be sucked into another club membership that you've already gotten out of once. Run, fast and far away!
