    Has anyone done the 90 minute presentation to get free tickets to a show. Seems fishy but curious how it really works

    My friends did this in Mexico and Hawaii for other things. Time share stuff I assume? They got everything they were promised. I would assume Vegas would work the same.

    Yea time share but to get Michael Jackson one tix for $60 each and a free stay at the jockey club should be worth it

    If your willing to go through the hard sell that they do and if they deliver the stuff that you want then fair play to you for doing it. It's not something that I would do as I have had my fair amount of arguments with time share when holidaying in Europe.

    I'd rather not spend my vacation time doing things I don't enjoy.

    We had done that in our earlier years. We were "this" close to actually signing once. They had distracted logic when they were offering a a ton of Sheraton Hotel points. Luckily I finally snapped out of it in time.

    Just be warned. The streets are littered with people that were 100% sure they would not fall victim.

    We have done this a few times.....TAKE WARNING.....the one we did in Vegas was for a vacation club and they promised $80 cash once it was over.......HOWEVER, they put us in a van and took us somewhere, where didn't know where we were and couldn't just walk out if we wanted to. They did pony up about 3 hours later with the $80 but I will never do one again.

    This, a thousand times this. I've heard too many horror stories. Don't do it!

    DON'T DO IT, I have heard the 90 minutes stretching into hours and then they don't give you transportation back to your hotel if you don't buy. Not worth the money you are trying to save when you take both time and a cab into account!

    I have done it, and would do it again if with a spouse. We got 2 shows, and a buffet. Got to pick from quite a few mid level acts.The worst part is they shuttle a group of at least 15 couples, you do not get your tickets till everyone is done with the hard sell, and after they shuttle us back. If you are on a budget and in Vegas for 4 days plus, I would recommend it. Have the wife ask about her insulin injection during the sales pitch, and then act like you forgot her juice. This may get you done quicker.

    They usually take about 2 hours. 60 minutes to present, 30 for the pitch, and 30 for the shuttle back and forth.

    May have to give this a shot. More free stuff, the more I have to gamble with
