free hawaii trip... not as exciting as it sounds

Getting a free trip to Hawaii should be a very exciting experience. Unfortunately for us, a "free trip" has been anything but exciting for almost a year now.

Last April we went to a time share presentation and actually bought one. As an incentive, they gave us a few gift's, one of which was a free 4 day trip to Hawaii, Airfare and Hotel. We were definitely excited since we were already planning on a Hawaii trip to visit my FIL. We had to wait 3 months before we could send in our form and then we "thought" it would be a matter of them getting in contact with us and making arrangements. (I would like to mention this trip is through a second party, NOT our time share.... that would be a major bummer since we bought into it).

Well, 3 rounds of back and forth "Forms" and 4 different "Picked Dates" and we still haven't gotten our free trip. And we most likely won't. Why?! Because I will be having a baby soon and "that's not their fault". Not that we were blaming them, but after postponing on us for months and MONTHS couldn't they at least say they would try to work with us when we are able to take the trip!?

Needless to say, after the 3rd date they denied us, we decided we would just go ahead and plan our original trip to Maui... which is finally less than a week away. I started packing this past weekend (only because I needed to try on everything in order to find out what fits my belly... I REFUSE to buy any maternity clothes). All I need now is a good book and "maybe" a new purse and sunnies.

  1. Ugh that sounds so frustrating I'm sorry it didn't work out! I feel like those typs of things rarely work out and you just end up getting screwed in the end. Your trip to Maui sounds fabulous though!

  2. What a pain! But I'm glad you get to go still even if it's not free like you had hoped. Do you find you like the timeshare so far? I've heard all about them but didn't know what people though of them who owned them.
