  1. I’m tempted to try this. A few years ago I did a vacation on the Big Island via Hilton. I went to the presentation and within 30 minutes I was out of there. Kept saying no and the salesman decided to give up on me. I had fully expected to be strong armed for 90 minutes.

  2. My time is valuable. 15000 points isn’t worth 90 minutes and the perpetual harassment of emails and phone calls after the meeting and having to chase Hyatt to get points posted

  3. Delta 1414 was leaking PREMIUM fluid on the passengers and they should be grateful that the airline deigned to give them that.

  4. Went to a timeshare presentation at a European ski resort, out of curiosity. The salesperson gave up on me eventually after I repeatedly said I have no time for a timeshare due to other vacation commitments and too many “free” hotel nights to use myself anytime soon and seemed to have an answer for every question that indicated it wouldn’t work for me. I wanted to say “Don’t want to waste your time on me as I am just here for the freebie”, but the other travel party members there for their own “freebies” told me that I shouldn’t do that under any circumstances.

  5. and if your single 7,500 points for 90 minutes which many land you in one of the Hyatt House homeless shelters for the night with pop tarts for breakfast which can kill you off thankfully after the excruciating painful 90 minutes sales pitch and the ongoing follow up grief till you buy

  6. 7500 Hyatt points is about 2/3 of a $230 night for me at a resort with a good breakfast and reasonable club or maybe 2 off-peak nights at a Category 1 hotel costing $90-120 per night with a basic breakfast included.

  7. CLT pax was probably taking a breather after a 20 minute misconex and AA. Waiting for his next flight 7 hours later.
