Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?
We went to one of their (The Advantage) high pressure presentations where they prommised to provide all types of travel accomodations at great bargain rates. After joining The Advantage, everything they said they were going to do was extremely late if at all. i.e. further interview to answer specific questions, provide membership number and card (with out which nothing was available) respond to questions through membership services and ultimately to providing reservation services.

With all of the prognastication, evasion and non performance we decided it was not for us. Upon advising them I wished to resign and have my fees refunded I have been totally avoided and they do not respond to phone calls or visits despite promises to do so.

They appear at this point to be a high pressure, non performing, slip shod, scam operation. If they have a business license it should be revoked. I intend to pursue this matter to some kind of conclusion.

We were victims too. How can the BBB give them a satisfactory rating?

I wish my wife and I found your web site sooner. We knew others had to have had problems with them. We were searching the Internet for "Advantage Vacation Marketing Systems" and found this story on the web.
My husband and I were so elated to say the least.

Stay clear of this company. They like to play like they are deaf and dumb? They are crooks and should be shut down by the Attorney general. Why is it the Better Business Bureau gives them a satisfactory rating?

Thank you badbusinessbureau.com! It was too late for us but we will be sending you a little donation for your wonderful service anyway.

Keep up your good service.
