On vacation, I found a pretty foolproof way of getting timeshare "awards" without sitting through the whole thing. I'd let one of these grifters harass me into attending a session, sound incredibly excited and interested for about the first ten minutes, and then break in and ask them if my "recent personal bankruptcy and the foreclosure on my home" would affect my ability to sign up. They'd immediately tense up and give me the look of death and tell me I wasn't qualified, and I'd just say, "That's too bad. I really wanted to do this. Please give me my prize." And they would. Every time. And off I'd go.
