Marriott Vacation Club Reschedules Appointments
Quite the turn of events here. The Marriott Vacation Club has called numerous people in the ToP Facebook group to reschedule their appoints that were canceled late last week. This is one of the more bizarre things I have seen in this space. They also said that they would honor the 50,000 point offer for attending. We also have numerous reports of people's previously scheduled meetings going through per normal. At least for anyone that didn't originally have their meeting cancelled.
If you are not sure what is going on, you are not alone. Let's play a little catch up together though. ToP broke the news on this deal about a week ago, where you could attend a virtual timeshare presentation for 90 minutes and would be given 50,000 Marriott Bonvoy points for attending. It seems like the offer became too popular and Marriott Vacation Club decided to say it was a rounding error to anyone that came to the party late. They then called a ton of people back, mere hours after scheduling their appointments, to cancel their presentation and withdraw the offer. This seemed to happen to anyone that called later in the day. Anyone that called in the evening or the following day was told the offer was no longer available.
Now they are calling people back to schedule those meetings once again. We have multiple data points of this happening and I expect more to roll in. We also have reports of them calling people for new appointments that had filled out the online form a week or so ago but never heard anything. So, if you missed out last time it may be worth filling that out and hoping for a call back if they need more spots filled. I would also check your voicemails if you had your appointment cancelled last week to see if you have a rebooking opportunity.
I would love to think my article about all of this played a role in things, but who knows if they ever saw it. Maybe they simply didn't run out of their advertising budget after all and decided to set some more meetings up with people that showed interest. It doesn't really matter though, as long as our readers get what they were promised. That is the important part.
Good luck to everyone out there, I hope many of you get the deal. May the odds be ever in your favor!
