Timeshare Deals That Will Jingle Your Bells Timeshare Deals That Will Jingle Your Bells Newsletter - November 2010

Everybody loves a deal — especially around the holidays. By shopping the RedWeek Bargain Resales pages you can find incredible timeshare resales at resorts around the world.

If you prefer something a little further south, there's a two bedroom timeshare unit at a five-star rated resort in Tennessee that includes eight Nascar Park tickets each year, also selling for $0.

Prior to making any timeshare purchase, we recommend that you gather as much information as possible before making a decision. A good place to start is the RedWeek Resources section. First-time buyers may find our Timeshare Pros and Cons, and Timeshare Purchase Options pages particularly helpful.

Member Review:

What a great time we had at the La Belle Maison. Not too far from Bourbon Street and within walking distance of the river front and Harrah's casino. Canal Street is just a block or two over. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Weight room was awesome!
