I guarantee you this is collusion on the part of Holiday Inn Club Vacations. If you remember, when HICV took over Silverleaf Resort, they were insistent on all Silverleaf members coming to an owner's meeting. That meeting was an attempt to coerce Silverleaf member to switch from their Silverleaf timeshare to a HICV timeshare.
Why? ...because HICV timeshares have no bonus time!!
So, when that didn't work out for them, this is their Plan B. Keep increasing the rates of bonus time so it isn't free any longer and Silverleaf members will opt to switch out of their Silverleaf Timeshare to a HICV timeshare.
THAT WILL BE THE NEXT OPTION THEY WILL ANNOUNCE WHEN THEY SAY THEY ARE OFFERING AN OLIVE BRANCH TO SILVERLEAF OWNERS.
According to what I have been told, all Silverleaf Units are close to 100 % sold. That means that HICV has maxed out all available units, regardless if the timeshare owner uses that unit on their purchase week or they have banked it for another week or location. HICV has has also raised the maintenance fees for 2019 as well.
So, Bonus Time IS NOT for empty units that haven't been sold yet. So, there should be no additional costs incurred by HICV for renting them out as Bonus Time. If everyone used their units on their timeshare week and location, there simply would not be any available Bonus Time.
A class action law suite will only make the attorneys rich. What every Silverleaf owner should do is file a consumer complaint with the Texas Attorney General and site collusion and how HICV has falsely stated the reason for raising fees. (They simply want to get rid of bonus time).
Send me an email to email@example.com and I will send you the link to file a consumer complaint with the Texas Attorney General and what to state.
If enough of us do this, the Attorney General will take this seriously and file criminal charges against Pat Connoly and Holiday Inn Club Vacations.
