How do you know if a company or a promotional activity is a scam? If somebody approaches you with an offer that’s too good to be true, your first instinct would be to dismiss it as a scam. This is especially true if the offer is a free item without any responsibility on your part. It’s unbelievable, yes, because nothing is free these days. Sometimes, it’s the statement the promo rep makes that’s wrong. Throwing out phrases like, “absolutely free”, “at no cost” or “without obligation” to attract probable customers is downright dishonest because they need something back. If you’re the one approached, do not dismiss the offer as a downright scam. Ask questions to verify. Who knows? What they offer might be something you want.
Classic Escapes approaches possible members via a scratch and win card promo wherein the recipient can win a holiday. The scratch and win card is free of any monetary cost but you have to give something back. In order to play it, you have to attend a presentation. You don’t pay it with money but you pay it with your time. After the presentation, you scratch your card and if you’re lucky, you get to win a prize.
Is Classic Escapes a scam? There is a lot of negative feedback about it. Some are claiming that the cards they distribute are marked. They know which cards are going to win and which cards won’t. They determine which card to give you based on how you look. Those who have won holidays are complaining about the accommodation. They say it’s below expectation and the location is not commendable. Then there are members who claim that they weren’t told that on top of the annual fee they pay, they have to pay another fee for each holiday they take. There are a lot of unhappy members that will make you dismiss Classic Escapes as a scam.
But is it? While there are unfavorable comments, there are plenty of positive feedback, too. A lot of satisfied members sing praises about how the company conduct their business. They are happy as well with the vacations they have taken and feel that they are pampered during their holidays. Many of them have gone on repeat holidays with their friends and family.
Before dismissing a company as a scam, it’s wise to do a thorough research first. Find out how long the company has been operating. In the case of Classic Escapes, find out how many members they have. Having a lot of long-time members is an indication that they do their business well. It is also of utmost importance to know if what they offer is good for you. Classic Escapes is in the vacation business. If you don’t have the time to take frequent holidays then chances are, you won’t use it.

Beware of the hard sell that you get when you attend the presentation. It does seem like a good deal at first. However when you later realize it isn't what you thought it was or what you wanted make sure you let them know quickly. I was just outside of the 30 day cooling period and am now stuck with a package that I have not used (even the freebies) and cant use because although they say it isn't a time share that is what it seems like. Classic Escapes do not want to know if you have a complaint.What ever you do don't take the easy finance they offer to buy your 'dream'!
what a scam these cunts are....they are just after your money and you get nothing in return.
