    Two separate half-shares (A:Odd Months and B:Even Months) from Warner Springs Ranch, now defunct. Loved that timeshare!

    I bought an EOY Kauai Beach Villas for $1, then gave it away on TUG to buy two annual weeks there for $1 and $3. No closing costs on any of them. One even came with an unused week.

    We bought two Sheraton Desert Oasis units and two Sheraton Broadway Plantation units back in 2008, during the easy Starwood-to-Starwood trading days. We got free weeks with three of the four units. These units got us a dozen weeks in Hawaii, two in London, and others.

    We dumped those units when Hawaii trades became difficult. And bought two more Westin Kierland units and one Kauai Beach Club.

    All on eBay. All cheap. All worked out as they should.

    Gosh. Except for 1.5 million Presidential Reserve points at Wyndham Bonnet Creek, everything I own came from ebay.

    Four weeks at The Resort on Cocoa Beach, four weeks at Quarter House in N.O., two weeks at Maison Pierre Lafitte in N.O., two weeks at Orlando International Resort Club, two weeks at Wyndham Santa Barbara, and single weeks at Pine Acres Lodge, Suites at Fisherman's Wharf, Grand Beach, and Club La Pension; plus about three million Wyndham points -- Ocean Walk, Royal Vista, and Bonnet Creek -- all acquired on ebay.

    I have bought (and subsequently sold) Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach, Marriott Desert Springs II, Maui Lea, and the Donatello. The most I ever paid was about $500, but most were less. Some came with free weeks. I have since moved on to buying off of Sumday's website after a particularly sketchy deal on one of the units that took forever to close with a difficult pcc, although everything turned out ok in the end. We still own too many weeks so I am taking a breather from buying although I do a lot of window shopping on ebay.

    Except for several bought from Hoa's and direct exchanges, all of the timeshares I have owned have come from ebay it's a long list and I am happy to say that I have made money on each one when I sold it except for several that I just gave away:

    Island Park Village Resort week 6, week 23, High Float, week 52, Mt Amanzi, Perna Perna Mossel Bay, dikolo, Silverleaf Villages, Tropic Leasure Club at Magens Bay, Tangalooma Island, Pelican Resort, Regattas Of Abaco, Inn of Silvercreek 1/4 Share, and week 28, Peregrine Townhomes, Landing at Seven Coves, Oyster Bay resort, MROP Rotator, Club Regina, Perrenial Vacation Club, Hotel on the Cay, Palace Resorts, Foxrun, Fairfield points, Sand Pebbles, Shell Vacation Club.

    Long time tuggers will probably recognize the "fads" if you will....South African weeks, Austraila for RCI points, foxrun, hotel on the cay (bulk purchase). It's been interesting through the years lots of great trades. Glad to be down to 2 weeks and my shell points and only trading with the independents.
