Sheraton’s Tempting Timeshare Offer…Without The Timeshare Presentation

Sheraton Vistana Villages Orlando Vacation Package Offer Breakdown

As our loyal readers know I love a good timeshare presentation vacation package.  You can get a massive amount of value from a very small out of pocket price.  I am still waiting to see this awesome Hawaii offer to come back around! The downside to these underrated packages is, of course, the actual timeshare presentation.  It is 90-120 minutes of soul sucking dirtiness that you have to get through to enjoy the rest of your trip.  Some people skip these packages all together because they just can’t handle it. But, what if there was no timeshare presentation requirement?  This has happened to me once before and I just received a new offer for a Sheraton Vistana Villages Orlando vacation package.  Let’s take a look at the offer and break down the value.

Sheraton Vistana Villages Vacation Package Details

I received the targeted offer via email. The subject line was, Your Sheraton exclusive expires August 20.

Here are the details of the offer:
  • 5 Days + 4 Nights at Sheraton Vistana Villages in Orlando, Florida
  • PLUS your choice of 15,000 Marriott Bonvoy™ Points OR a $100 Gift Card to Planet Hollywood® restaurant at Disney Springs®
  • All for $269 with 12 months to travel
  • Must reserve by September 20th

Breaking Down The Offer

If I was going to book this it would probably be for June of 2021.  That would be right after the kids get out of school, it wouldn’t be the worst of the heat in Orlando yet and hopefully Covid is under control by then.

I plugged in some random dates in June and the price for 4 nights was $500, not including taxes and fees.  I left them off since there will be some taxes and fees on the package price as well.

The 15,000 Marriott Bonvoy points are worth around $100 to me.  I would probably take that over a restrictive Planet Hollywood gift card, even though I can’t stand Marriott.  If it was a generic Disney Springs or Disney gift card I would probably go that route.  But with it being restricted to one restaurant I put the value of the gift card at like $75.  The points come out ahead obviously.

So that is around $600 in value (which could go up if travel picks up and room costs go up etc.) for $269.  Paying only 45% of what something is worth is a good value for sure.

Final Thoughts

During normal times I would probably grab this Sheraton Vistana Villages vacation offer without a doubt. It is a big part of the reason I have been paying myself back with Ultimate Rewards, to take advantage of opportunities like this.

I don’t think I will this time around because of the 12 month time frame. I would much prefer being able to book something in the fall to ensure I can use it.  Otherwise I may be throwing money away if everything gets cancelled again.  I probably should call and see if they are able to work with me on extending the booking window.  Even though it isn’t a timeshare presentation I could still use the same timeshare presentation tricks, never accept the first offer.

  1. I purchased January 2020 for November 2020 dates and am planning on going (already had COVID!). My mom lives in Florida so she is going to come and stay with me and my two children in the 1 BR villa.
    At first I was skeptical and thought it was a scam. There are no taxes or fees on the package (I asked prior to booking), so $269 is what I paid in total and picked the 15,000 points. I have two Chase BV cards, one of which I just picked up for the bonus last October. Maybe that’s what triggered the offer? My other card I’ve had since 2011 and this is the first offer I’ve had like this. I asked the CSR how these are triggered and she didn’t know (no surprise there), said some people get several and others never get any.

  2. Mark,

    I purchased a package from this property on 4/19/19 that I haven’t used yet. They’ve extended for me multiple times now and the expiration date is now pushed out to 6/2021. Each time I’ve asked they said there was a fee to extend but have waived it.

    • I have no idea honestly. I keep getting timeshare phone calls every day after doing a Hilton one too. I got a very similar offer a few years ago because of Amex (same resort) so maybe they are just recycling that pool of people.

  3. I called and booked the package with a 2 bedroom villa for $538. They also extended the expiration date by 3 months.

  4. I may give them a call too and see what is up. We are just back from the Hilton 100K point timeshare thingy. We got it over on the morning of the 2nd day. Hard sell, but no go on our part. We were given a pretty crappy room too.

  5. Hey Mark – that’s kind of an intriguing offer… Any chance you could post the phone number on the offer? I didn’t receive an offer, but I may take advantage of it if they would offer me something similar over the phone.

  6. This is a pretty decent offer especially with no presentation. Agree that the one year time frame limits this opportunity but those who live within driving distance of Orlando, could take advantage without much risk.
