· Lie About Your Age: Timeshare salespeople want to know how old you are, based on the principle that if you are older you have more solid finances to afford a timeshare. Also several timeshare groups have minimum-age requirements for owners. So they will often ask if you are older than 25. In this case, you aren't. Even if you are pushing 45 or 50, tell them you are 24.
· Just a One-Night Stand: Since the goal of this initial casino floor timeshare pitch is to get you to attend one of their seminars, the sales folk will often ask if you are in town for three days or more. Again, you aren't. Tell them you are here for only one night and leaving early in the morning.
· Keep Moving: After you check-in, focus on finding the lobby elevators and nothing else. Timeshare sales people hang out near the check-in desks and are ready to pounce when you're in a good mood. They also hang out by the elevators at some properties too so keep moving and stop for no one.
· Nothing's Free in Vegas: Remember that. So when someone asks if you would like something for free, always know that there is something else they are not telling you.
