Are Timeshare Presentations Worth the Perks? + Interesting Offer

Before you jump to conclusions, let’s get this out-of-the-way. I am not saying that buying a timeshare is a good idea or that I would ever consider buying one- I wouldn’t.

The two main things I wanted to do were to check out another baseball stadium, Turner Field- home of the Atlanta Braves. And secondly,  just to visit a new state (although we only got to visit one city in Georgia).

Putting together our trip was relatively easy and cheap thanks to miles & points. Without miles & points I doubt that we would’ve taken this trip at all. It woud have been a pretty costly long weekend.

During our trip, the weather in Atlanta was really nice. It was pretty hot but with little humidity- making for some pretty comfortable weather. We did get caught in the rain heading back from the Braves game during our last day but it didn’t mess up our plans!
