Frugal Family Fun: Review & Giveaway!

Wednesday, October 19, 2011 Review & Giveaway!

Family vacations are NOT cheap these days. Just getting to your destination alone can be ridiculously expensive. Then add in a place to stay, food and entertainment money and you are looking at a pretty expensive venture!  Timeshares are a great way to save money when you stay somewhere! is a great place to find timeshares and plan your next vacation!

What is

At, timeshare owners post their units for rent or sale to an audience of over 1.5 million registered users, or exchange it using Dial An Exchange (DAE).
Travelers come to to rent or buy timeshares units directly from the owner, often at tremendous savings compared with hotels or dealing with the resort itself.

What Does it Cost?

It's FREE to view the resorts, availability, and our timeshare discussion forums.
A RedWeek Membership, just $14.99, allows you to contact owners about available units, access thousands of resort reviews, and want ads. Posting your own timeshare for rent, sale, or exchange requires a nominal additional fee

I checked out the website.  Since I am not in the market for a vacation any time soon, it was merely to see how it works and find out more.  It seems to be a good place to find a great deal on a time share.  I like staying in a time share because you can cook your own meals and save a lot of money not having to eat out for every meal.  This is a great way to go when you are on a budget.

I also really like being able to find something close to home.  I like mini-vacays where I can visit something within a few hours driving distance and just get away for a few days.  Sometimes these plans are put together in just a few weeks. can help you find great deals on time shares even right before you are needing it!  I found a timeshare less than an hour away!  The rate was about $40 cheaper per night on Redweek than it was on the site for the actual timeshare.  So if we stayed for a week we would save $280! It is also a lot better than a hotel room-we would get a 2 bed 2 bath for $136 a night vs. a 1 bed 1 bath hotel for the same price! This is a great way to go!

So if you are planning a family vacation, check out and see what they have in store! You might be surprised with what you find-and how much you save!!
