Sunday Savings Series: Look for the Signs!

What’s wrong with this picture? (Besides the chipped nail polish..)

Everyone wants to save money on a Walt Disney World vacation. How do you know if a deal is legit? The first thing that you need to do is to look for the signs. If there is a major piece of information that is incorrect, you might want to stay away from that offer.

In the picture above, there is one major error. The offer says Orlando, but the tickets are for Disneyland. Last time I checked, Disneyland was still in California. I think that if they had moved it I would have heard.

I’ve had this ad come up in my Facebook newsfeed several times. Each time, there are a couple of hundred comments, most of them are people tagging their friends. I decided to do a little bit of research on the company. It is a real company, but they are selling timeshares. (I might do a post about that sometime soon.) For now I’ll just state that a timeshare presentation is not for anyone who gives in easily.

When you see a deal that seems too good to be true, don’t immediately fall for it. Look for the signs that something might be off. You want to save on your vacation, but remember that there are scams and deals with hidden agendas out there. Can you really trust a company that doesn’t even bother to have the right tickets in their ad? Unfortunately, many people don’t know the difference, and won’t notice this major faux pas. I hope that you won’t be one of them.
