DreamTrips Life is a new membership based travel club which promises that they can make it possible for anyone, who lives on any budget, to experience more and take world class vacations.

According to their video presentation available at VacationSooner.com, DreamTrips realized that people want to take amazing vacations and have “bucket list” experiences, but feel they can’t because of money issues.

So DreamTrips created a vacation club which could offer 5 star experiences to their members at 2 or 3 star prices. All you have to do is pay a one time activation fee of $200.00 and a monthly fee of $55.00.

How the Club Works

Using the same bulk buying strategies of companies like CostCo and Sam’s Club, DreamTrips buys tickets, books hotel rooms, and arranges experiences in large numbers so they can get discounted prices which they pass on to their customers, so they can then “Vacation Sooner.”

In addition, all the fees you pay to them are accumulated throughout your membership and then turned into Reward Points which can then be applied to Reward Trips. Every year on the anniversary of your sign up, you will receive 660 points. 1 point is equal to 1 dollar, and when these points are attributed to a trip, it will be discounted by that amount.

They also have an Online Mall, which features over 900 stores, including major retailers like Target, Walmart, Best Buy, and more. Each time you make a purchase at one of these stores through their Online Mall, a portion of the purchase cost will be added into a Vacation Bank for you and can be attributed to vacations you book at later times.

The Business Opportunity: Getting Started

Customers who choose can not only be Vacation Sooner members, but also representatives who can earn money by selling WorldVentures memberships to new members. All you need to do is pay a one time $99 activation fee and a monthly fee of $11.

Once you refer four active members – who maintain their membership – your monthly membership dues will be waived for as long as those members remain active.

After that, the earning matrix is dependent on how many members you sign up within certain periods of time. The video presentation does not mention monetary compensation; most of the compensation referenced is that of bonuses and sweepstakes entries.

If you are interested in becoming a vacation club member or a representative, or are looking for details about what recourse you have should you have complaints or issues with their trips or memberships, you’ll need to refer to their website or find an active representative in your area to get specifics.

Travel Club Controversy

Travel clubs do not have the best reputations, historically speaking, because of past trends with clubs taking members’ dues and then not honoring travel arrangements due to blackout dates and other limitations.

New travel clubs are trying to change these perceptions and create new understandings of their opportunities, though you will have to reach out to existing members to find proof of whether or not these new companies are worthwhile. Current members who are familiar with this organization are invited to please leave their reviews below.

    Look at it this way……You may already have decided to take a holiday in the next 12 months you will pay a deposit to a travel agent and book a “package deal” By Using Worldventures you use the initial joining fee as your deposit and you can choose your dreamtrip organised but the company or tailor make your own as and when you feel you can go when and where you want at any time and take advantage of the many trips and other benefits available. not to mention the concierge, the car hire rates, the cruises,day trips, restaurant deals, online cash back shopping mall, soon to be released social media interactive mobile app and much much more to come…. You can also have access to the booking engine which guarantees you the cheapest price or 150% of the difference back!…so its a win win situation the worst that will happen is you have a great holiday then cancel your membership – the best is that you have lots of amazing trips and have a successful business out of it. This is NOT a get rich fast scheme and you will have to learn the product in order to make the most of it and your returns will be reflected by your effort but it is a great deal and i just wish i had found it sooner. These claims do work and they are honored I know, I have and will continue to use them for many many more trips come and join us…..You Should Be Here…..Satisfied Customer I am happy to help if you want to join

    I find it funny that people still throw around the term “pyramid scheme”. Educate yourselves people!!! I am a licensed life insurance agent…INSURANCE THE ORIGINAL NETWORK MARKETING OPPORTUNITY!!! One day long ago, someone had a stroke of genius!!! He/she thought to themselves, “Why don’t we take what the insurance guys do, and apply it to other products and services???” Every MLM out there is a variation of what we have been doing in the insurance industry for decades!!! I am all for “true” network marketing opportunities!!! During my freshman year of college, many many years ago…My Intro to Business professor asked us a simple question. He asked the class, “What business model offers a new business owner the “ideal” opportunity???” After numerous guesses from the class, he smiled and said, “Network Marketing is the correct answer!!! Network Marketing offers a new business person the “ideal setup because, 1) It offers a LOW START UP COST compared to traditional Brick and Mortar businesses 2) Typically has a LOW OVERHEAD COST compared to traditional businesses, and 3) Offers a HIGH PROFIT POTENTIAL!!!” This came from a man who had been the CEO of a Fortune 200 company!!! I am posting this because I have recently looked into starting a MLM travel business, and I like what I see from WV/Dream Trips/Vacation Sooner. And believe me folks, I NEVER INVEST IN ANYTHING WITHOUT DOING MY DUE DILIGENCE!!! Truth be told, most times a MLM company runs into serious problems, it’s often because of bad business practices that become wide spread among the reps people in the field, not necessarily the company itself!!! Not to say that there haven’t been incidents where the actually company was the problem!!! But from my research I am confident about investing my money in this venture!!!

    Word of advice to all my Network Marketers…NEVER ARGUE WITH A FOOL, PEOPLE FROM A DISTANCE CAN’T TELL WHO’S WHO!!!!

    I have two questions. It’s simple. It’s not difficult to answer. This question will probably make-it or break-it for many. Can you opt out after joining? If so, will it require vasts amounts of paper work and months of processing?

    Yes you can opt out and it only requires an email. Full money back guarantee if within the first 14 days. I don’t know why you would though. The trips are VERY well priced and if you are some kind of cheap trip finding magician and can find the same trip cheaper they will still send you on the trip and give you your money back. Your trip savings account takes even more money off of the already cheap trip and if you Sell the membership and/or tell people about it and they sign up you get even more points for free to use as your savings. That feature alone explains why you can’t completely pay for your trip with points.. There are so many ways to get free point the club wouldn’t be profitable if there wasn’t a cash purchase portion.

    My boyfriend just introduced this idea to me and although he seemed like his mind was already made up wayyyyyy before he even told me about it, i am still having a hard time believing that this business venture is indeed legit. Don’t get me wrong, i have spent almost 2 hours carefully examining all of the testimonial provided and i have literally STUDIED the video on the webpage, but i’m still not quite sure on this whole idea! Maybe its because i don’t like my hard earned money, that i actually worked my behind off for, being played with or the scare of me investing my hard earned money into something and me not actually being satisfied with the product of what my money was spent on, or maybe both! i need more information and legit information. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP! Vacations are a must for us but the right way and cheapest way

    Your boyfriend is smart to invest in these trips and this amazing company. They have changed our lives. I have made over $600 in the past two weeks. This is legit, but recognize it isn’t a get rich quick venture. It does take trading – HIGHLY ENCOYRAGED! – but the vacations are real, the money making is real if you put in the time and effort. It takes 10 hours to be full time, 4 hours for part time. I have been on two dream trips and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!

    World Ventures is not a scam!
    Only those who are uniformed or who have became a member and didn’t do the things necessary to be successful would say otherwise.

    If you’re not waking up every morning and running your own biz, producing the product, managing the books, dealing with vendors, shipping, storage, and all of the above on your OWN; you are working in a pyramid! If you have a CEO, Regional manager, supervisor etc… you are in a pyramid and those at the top level are paid more. If network marketing is not for you, get your panties out of a bunch and go back to work building someone else’s dream!

    Getting online hoping to pass on your ignorance (lack of knowledge on the company) is very unproductive for you, and you’re not going to avert those risk takers, like myself, who are not afraid to push themselves to get more out of life. I’ve been with world Ventures for a few months and it has been awesome. Network Marketing is not for everybody. It is stated many time that the results are TYPICAL (They DO NOT SAY GAURANTEED!)…

    I’m a military member and I love what I do. I have no complaints on where I am in life. I’m also an investor and every investor knows what diversity is. Me being the risk taker that I am, I view this as another easy stream of income. The way I looked at it was, I’m risking a little under $300 bucks to possibly add more to my families life. If this is a ‘scam’ then it’s not life altering funds. The loss wouldn’t have me standing on the corner with a sign ad a cup asking for change or moving my family up under the nearest bridge.

    Whether you open your own bakery, barbershop, record label, flower shop, clothing line, daycare etc… you’re taking a risk and you’ll have to put up some type of funds to get started. It’s an investment, and most businesses don’t do very well in their first year.

    Laughing at the BS on this thread. World Ventures has changed names so many times, based in so many states. There is reason it changes names, because legally, the government cannot shut them down if they legally change their company name. The WV organizations has had the AG in multiple states close them down…this information is not hard to find. If you read the thread, it is almost humorous that all the people defending this scam say almost the same things, as if they REHEARSED the answer. Beware people, there is no free lunch and the people on this scam are bums looking for an easy way out.

    Easy way out? Really? I work very hard to be where I am. WV has NEVER been shut down lol…. Anyone listening to you needs to turn away.
    I began my venture less than a year ago, have been on two dream vacations and they were just that! I have also made 20 times my initial investment by sharing with family and friends. People who couldn’t take their families on vacation because of the cost can do it now. It’s a no brainier…. Check REAL FACTS, don’t take the word of an uninformed individual. I haven’t paid a monthly fee since I joined, but the company still puts the $50 a month into my account. For an investment of $361 I have a lifetime membership in the most elite travel club in the WORLD!
    I’m earning money, at the least $100 a week, since my advancement in the company it’s MUCH MORE than that.
    So you think it’s a scam? Good enough, we’ll keep having great vacations, making beautiful family memories while making money, and you keep working out dead end job

    Hi
    I have read some reviews and also a traveler myself both for works and vacation. This is a pyramid marketing. I don’t know much about it and I have a meeting set up with one of the representative to talk about some data and number. But here is my thought. I have traveled 1 time every single month for the last 3-4 years, been on over 31 countries in the world both for business and vacation and actually platinum on most of hotel group and airlines. The reason I am open mind about this is for couples of reason

    POTENTIAL PROS – (but these are only potential ….not guarantee yet until I can cross comparison simultaneously booking through my own computer with Vacation Sooner agent / sale rep computer to see which one has a better deal )

    1. Save time on booking – because every time I travel I have to search multiple search engine and call agent to get the best price for airline and hotel , but hotel and airplane ticket must be a good one. Of course they can post 5 stars or 4stars online but when you check in, it looked like a 2star hotel. That happened to me a few time
    2. Flexible date/ no black out, and the number of place/hotel/resort that you can travel too has to be big. I know through online search engine they are massive, but through this Vacationsooner group . I am not sure how big is the list of hotel and resort. SO there’s maybe a limitation on that

    CONS
    1. They said you can use point for your vacation , but all of the vacation has Cap on it. There are max allowable point you can use. For example, Vegas Vacation cost 300 dollar (point) , if you already have 500 point, you can only use 100 point toward it , and still have to pay out of pocket 200 dollars. SO in a way, you can’t really have a free vacation . Compare to traditional membership like Cruise / Airline/ Hotel – I have use free ticket/ hotel and cruise many times before for being platinum member – and Traditional membership with those are actually FREE – no cost for initial membership.

    2. This is the idea of saving money to do a vacation – pay first then money come back to you when you use it. The video said if you pay monthly 25 dollar and + 100 dollar initially , then all of it can convert to point. So here is the math 100 initial + 25/month x 12 month = 400 dollar that you pay out of your pocket , and you get back in point but it has to mature in 1 year. Also, if you book a vacation, you can’t use all 400 point, you can only use some of the 400 point, unless you book like a really expensive vacation i.e. 2000 and then use all 400 point , you still end up paying 1600 dollar. BUT in reality , that 400 point that you get discount for IS YOUR MONEY to begin it. A good analogy is like Putting money in the saving account, and continue to put money in the CD or saving account , and can’t really use it all when you need it, and over time , you don’t really earn interest . and if in case you don’t like it and want to close it or end your membership, you lose all the money that left in that bank account.

    Bottom line, I think this concept of Pyramid marketing have been done before, i.e. similar to other companies Nuskin, Mary Kay, Obage … for marketing on skin care product. The reason I give it some point is because it’s still better than Insurance ….lol….because every one of us still have to pay for our insurance monthly but we never get to use it. and in the case that we use it, it’s a headaches and we never get back the money value that we pay for. However , as for investment concept. This is not an investment, because I rather put my Money into Saving account , CD, or stock market, Earn EXPONENTIAL as well , and then when I need a vacation , I’ll take it out and pay for a vacation. and earn traditional point through hotel / air/ resort ,..etc. because if you know most of hotel/car/air point don’t apply if you book through a 3rd party agency.

    Hope this help

    You are misunderstanding …. These trips are already HIGHLY DISCOUNTED trips, then you can use your points, aka club dues, aka as your vacation club account. It works like a Christmas club account. I have used my membership many times and have NEVER been promised a 4/5 star hotel and ended up in a 2/3 star. There is no set cap or set of allowable points you can use on vacation, it varies. Would you rather pay thousands on a trip, or pay hundreds for that same trip? I know what these trips are like and for an investment of $250 ( which ALL goes into your travel account), it’s definitely worth it!

    So, let’s look at this from a business perspective. This “product” that a person in question is buying gives you a discount on your vacation. That’s great, but you still have to pay for the vacation because the points don’t cover it all. So let’s say I can do 2 trips a year, I am spending $800 for the membership in the first year. However I can only spend 400 ($400) points on each trip. Now I am a single man so no big deal. Flight is $1,300 for each trip, hotel is $400 (if you take away the 400 points) on each trip, that does not cover food or any added things. Now here is where your membership fails on me, and before you jump the gun, I am a president of a casino so I know how to run a business. So all this is, and I use this term for the lack of a better one, a vacation back. I would give you the money and you hold it till I want to use some of it. Now I know “sign people up” I don’t have time for that. Now anyone who is smart would invest the money for 6 to 8 months gain interest on it and then you can go on vacation. If your product work like that maybe. So this is a conventional scam, but it does lack true gain, and sadly the people who would need this the most are the same people who can’t afford it. Sorry to say till this product can gain interest with no labor, like a CD or a 401k then you will not get my money nor will you get anyone I know.

    If you took the time to really understand it, the dreamtrip product where the points would be used are not hotel or plane bookings. They are packaged experiences and the vast majority of them include extras such as excursions that most can not afford to do on a vacation they book as is usually done. I have busted my tail picking up so many extra shifts to take my family on vacations that can not touch the experiences being offered by Worldventures Dreamtrip products. All of us are not rich like you. If they want to help me save my $50/month so that I have 600 points at the end of the year so that I can take my family on a vacation that may be presented to me at a price of $2000, I’m gonna do it. Because guess what? You take that same trip with those same perks and you will pay $5000 for the exact same thing. So maybe since you are so rich and can afford to throw away $3000, this is not for you. But do not put down a concept that is making it a possibility for my children to see the world outside of cruise ship destinations without me having to bust my tail to pay for it. And a little FYI, my points (as is the case for hundreds of thousands of regular folks) cost me nothing!! Do your research a little better next time business man!! You have a nerve talking about other business when you are clearly in the business of taking hard working folk’s money every second of the day!

    President of a casino. Really?! The biggest pyramid scheme of all! Feeding off people’s addictions. You barely pay your employees minimum wage while you get paid handsomely! I would have been ashamed to share that. I bet you’re not brave enough to share the casino you work at your current salary.

    A very long review, but incredibly important to read. Here is how a pyramid scheme works:

    (1) People involved must pay a fee to be a part of the “company”. Usually some sort of product is promised them (goods, vacations, an unrealistic capitol return), but some pyramid schemes don’t even promise goods.

    (2) You make money back by getting a certain number of people to join. Always more than one person; that is how it is a pyramid scheme and not a tower scheme. The more people you are required to refer, the more successful the scheme, as people paying will increase at an exponential rate relative to the necessary referrals.

    (3) The company will do everything it can to seem legit as long as possible. The most common type of scheme is the “unrealistic return of capitol” scheme. A rep will vaguely tell you that they have an amazing business model that will triple your money invested in no time at all, and better yet, you can make your money back before than if you can refer 5 new people. Of course, some people will become suspicious after investing and demand a refund. If they don’t get it back, a shock will be created and the pyramid will collapse in a panic, so refunds are ALWAYS given and those people are encouraged to tell others in the company that their money was safely returned. Sometimes, the company will even return some of the money (10%) and claim that it is their first return on investment. This motivates people to further spread the word.

    (4) The bubble bursts. Oftentimes, nothing illegal occurs until this moment. The business owner has a goal in mind: a specific number of people before the company is no longer worth sustaining. Remember that in a pyramid scheme, profits are exponential, so the owner has made much much much much more than anyone else in the company, plus all of the money intended to be spent on the “investment” (or future vacations) is in his pockets. At this time, the owner vanishes completely with all the money. If it was a 4-to-1 referral system, roughly 3/4 of the investors will not break even by the time this happens. THIS is the illegal part: fraud.

    Observe that DreamTrips has already gone through the first three points. They have undoubtedly sent their members on a few vacations while still maintaining profits for the owner; this is to his advantage, as it legitimizes the company and boosts morale amongst the sales people. But keep in mind, the ultimate goal is NOT to provide fabulous vacations for as many people as possible. It is to make the owner millions of dollars in a very short time frame.

    Pyramid schemes get shut down, then people go to jail. They aren’t allowed to participate in the NY Stock Exchange ….lol.

    Looking to join, thinking twice. says:

    November 23rd, 2014 at 3:07 am

    OK so i was just shown this and i was about to join a payed some of it and i’m thinking of paying the rest but… Read the pros and cons and the rants and likes about this. I’m so confused, i mean yes scams are true they do exist and things that sound to good to be true normally are. I get it if you are not thinking of how your money is gained and just jump in, you could be being screwed and not know it. I mean i own a small business i know a when things are being sold. Things are always talked about highly and if you put enough time into anything rewards/payouts can be nice. But like all things Sales are not always better, Black Friday is coming up. All that is used for is for people to buy and spend not save. So sure if you where to buy two TVs for $500 each and black Friday comes along and they go to $250 its a deal… right? WELL!! kinda. Its a way to pull you in. Now that you saved that extra $500 you will maybe(highly likely) spend it somewhere else.

    Anther example of selling Technics A sweet shirt is priced at $80 and a sale goes on and drops it to $45!! that’s great so you grab two so you can have two of them for a cheaper price. Now sure if you where going to get two and you showed up with $160 and it was $45 you saved. But really its a trick to get you to spend just a little more. $10 more really, now $10 its not a lot but so many people go for it. SO you have 300 people buy two for the lower price. Well you just made a $3000 profit.
    This could be and is i’m sure is anther one of those kinda of selling Technics.

    Now here is where it gets confusing… Those who claim to be like Federal agent’s and say its a scam. Well I see there views as a caution, if this was against the law why can it still go on. Now i know this world is not ran on morals its by money so yes those big money making member’s could hold off any law suit forever. But i mean one comment and then nothing??? really? If its bad do more comment on this plz. Show me reasons not just facts.

    Oh and yes those who say the money is just shared well you need to wake up a little more. Its not, i mean sure they move some numbers around and make it look that way but their is a higher agenda somewhere. Always is all Jobs work in the same way. One person starts something and gets the benefits from all. Somewhere some how someone is paying. Those who don’t get into it and quite payed your check. Those few people you brought in and paid the joining fee paid your check. Why do you think its points not money given back. That money is given to someone else just like a bank. Banks don’t really have the same amount of physically cash as they do money on accounts. It was considered a scam too.

    Now if this is truly a good deal and works, great! but i don’t want anyone to have to end up paying me just because they can’t find enough people. On top of that i don’t want to be one of those guys either. Now i have so many wishes to go see the world. But currently don’t have the means. So this a a tempting offer the extra cash would be so nice. I could get my business running even more, i could start building my PC’s and selling those. So much it would speed up with this. I’m torn left and right on this.

    I mean I’ve done the number crunch very quickly so don’t hold me dead on for this. But if you did this right you could get a big enough group together and then have the group just stop growing and then throw the monthly all into one payment and then all pitch in for trips and stuff. You could cut all lose by the last people on the list. And really keep the sales on the trips. And have no one getting the short end of the stick.

    I don’t know i have done some good amount of thinking on this it would be very easy to put this out and get enough people not knowing what they are really doing and getting paid for it so no real questions are asked. And they don’t even know who but somewhere maybe 100 years from when they start suddenly lands and really hurts someone. I mean either this is a handy way to earn money or its a way to fk people over and not even realize it until its either to late. And that 50/50 chance of this could be really hurting someone else for my enjoyment that’s holding me at a stand by.

    While NOT ILLEGAL, World Ventures does work off the old “Pyramid Scheme” setup. You PAY CASH to recruit people, and make it back from the cash of your recruits. Logically, someone has to lose money for you to get paid…

    Again, not a pyramid scheme, just a pyramid concept! Think of your job, top of that pyramid is CEO, then co CEO,
    then managers, coordinators, team leaders, associates, EVERY business in the history of businesses is a pyramid!!

    RZ says:

    A “Pyramid Scheme” is when people sign up by paying a fee and recruit other people who also pay a fee. The recruits also recruit new members and so on and so forth. There’s only money being exchanged; there’s NO service or product sold; THAT’S ILLEGAL.
    The reason these ‘Network Marketing’ companies look like a Pyramid is because you can recruit new members and you also make money off of your recruits’ efforts, and their recruits’ efforts. Basically, your everyday Sales Team. With the difference that in a sales team you CANNOT hire your team. So this model works better for the sales person.
    And with this company, Representatives don’t have to hire new representatives to make money. All they have to do is sell the travel club and they make a commission off of that sale.

    While at a first glance I would also say that this is a pyramid scheme, I am interested in hearing why these ppl defend vacation sooner to such a high extent. I currently reside in Canada and I am intrigued to learn more about this concept. I am curious to know how this works.

    Hi NF, what is your definition exactly of a pyramid scheme?

    By definition “A pyramid scheme is an unsustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public.”

    In WorldVentures we get paid a once off direct commission for referring a person who joins the Dreamtrips travel club, not for recruiting. Our product is Dreamtrips and our service is Rovia. Rovia was the winner of the Worlds Best Travel Search Engine in 2012, and just this year alone Dreamtrips won the Worlds Leading Travel Club in North America, Africa, Asia and Europe at the World Travel Awards. We are currently operating in 28 countries and our co-founders we nominated at finalists in 2010 Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the year award. I highly doubt that Ernst & Young, the 3rd largest auditing firm in the world would back WV if WV was a pyramid scheme.

    I would be happy to discuss things further with you if you like.

    funny how not one person has mentioned where they went or where they are going….they simply say “on a vacation”….Hmmmmmm. Also no clear answers about how you make money or how much and how soon. One last thing…after a year you get $660 in pts. the last time I looked it cost about 5X that to take my GF and our daughter on a vacation, so I will be doing this for 5yrs before I can take my first vacation?…..No thank you. BTW I am only looking into this because an aquaintence looked me up after years of not talking to him and out of the blue started to try to sell me on this. Not sure what I think yet!!!!

    The money you put in does not go to the company it goes to the company and right back to you once you sign up so that u can take a vacation. Tf is wrong with some of you. Therefore Sam’s is a scheme too hun because you pay them to use their products their merchandise in bulk instead of retail. Sams does not give you your money back when you sign up to go shopping!

    Yes, but Sams is once a year under $50. These folks are taking way way more plus the credit card gets billed every month forever, not once a year. Plus, I would want to see what vacations are out there before I buy and that does not seem to be possible. Sounds like a scam to me or a timeshare i do not want.
    Why is it that Priceline or others like it do not do this? The business model of vacationsooner would not be tolerated with a publicly traded company like Priceline that is why!!

    There are a couple of things I have noticed, reading these comments:
    1. No one involved in this organization is specific. They never say, “I’m taking a Trafalgar Tour to the Canary Islands for 9 days for $300 per person.” They only say I’m going on vacation in three weeks for pennies. This same phrase is repeated over and over.
    2. The answers appear to be written by very young (and often aggressive) people, or older people who seem financially desperate. Again, no specifics are given, only that they now own BMW’s any fly all over the world.
    Why not take the $1,000 you pay in the first year and put it towards a nice holiday?

    Actually Kim you pay $860 in the first year. $200 of which you can’t use with the other $660. I’d rather save $1000 on my own and take my own trip. Plus why can’t you use all of your points on one trip??? You can only use set amounts and still have to use MORE money. Sounds like a waste of money.

    As a member of World Ventures, and a paralegal by trade, we aren’t allowed to share the exact pricing, but that’s not to say that we can’t give a ball-park figure for a trip we plan on going on, and sharing that information. Also, I assure you I’m not financially desperate by any means, but chose to have another stream of income. What’s wrong with that? I’ve been on several amazing ‘dreamtrips’ and will never travel any other way again, thanks to this awesome company! As far as the putting the ‘$1,000.00 you pay in the first year and putting it toward a nice holiday’.. you actually accrue $660.00 in a year, and are able to put every single penny of that toward a ‘holiday’ or few, because it rolls over every year. :)

    my kids’ dad and I were talked to by a “worker” named nancy. today he went to a meeting. he of course is thinking of joining. me- never will I spend $ when my kids need shoes, clothes and food. ask me when was the last time their dad paid for any clothes and shoes? vacation sooner Is a scam to people who CANT afford it. if it was $5 then yes. because it’s not then nope. and nancy’s selling story wasn’t a story. her husband and herself has good paying jobs. of course they can do it. one of their ” members” named Elizabeth will go to her sisters for her financial help to pay this company because Elizabeth cant afford it. she thinks she can but she cant. Elizabeth has a job but its not a good paying one. my kids’ dad has my family paying his bills. he took out a 401k to get Christmas presents and internet. taking out money to pay that money is just dumb so he can spend more money on this company while his kids don’t have shoes, clothes. get real scammers.

My questions are how much do you get paid to sign-up each person? If you continue to sign-up more do you get the same pay for each or does it increace? Also, is there an option to apt out if this dosent work out and would i get my money back? He was not able to answer these questions.

    To be a Rep, it’s 360, with a 65/mo fee, until you get 4 people, then it’s waived for forever. To be a traveler (the product) it’s 199, again with a 55/mo fee until you get 4 people, then being waived. Regardless of whether or not you get 4 within any period of time, 55 points of the monthly goes into a piggy bank & after a yr (on your anniversary date), you get to use those 660 points toward trips. Also 200 of the initial membership fee goes immediately toward a trip! It’s a win-win! #tywv

    I am a Federal Agent and this is absolutely a pyramid scheme. If you are lucky enough to make any money your are only earning from recruiting others to joing the club. You are not selling any goods or services.

    This is directly from the www.ftc.gov website:

    Multilevel Marketing

    In multilevel or network marketing, individuals sell products to the public — often by word of mouth and direct sales. Typically, distributors earn commissions, not only for their own sales, but also for sales made by the people they recruit.

    Not all multilevel marketing plans are legitimate. If the money you make is based on your sales to the public, it may be a legitimate multilevel marketing plan. If the money you make is based on the number of people you recruit and your sales to them, it’s not. It’s a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal, and the vast majority of participants lose money.

    If you’re considering buying into a multilevel marketing plan, get the details.

    If it sounds to good to be true then it is and you should keep your hard-earned money in your pocket.

    What you’re spewing are false claims. We are a multi-level marketing company, of which Donald Trump and Warren Buffet have hundreds in their ownership. We are a legal entity. A pyramid is not.

    That’s what it sounds like to me. Vague descriptions by others and info. (until actually joining, I guess). I don’t see any way to make money OTHER than get other foolish people to “join.” And then, you just get a portion of your monthly fee credited back. And so on and so forth. Beware, people There’s a big red flag here.

    Hello Elizabeth: I respect that you don’t know what you don’t know. I don’t say this to be rude I would like to quote something you said,
    “Not all multilevel marketing plans are legitimate. If the money you make is based on your sales to the public, it may be a legitimate multilevel marketing plan. If the money you make is based on the number of people you recruit and your sales to them, it’s not. It’s a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal, and the vast majority of participants lose money.”

    The first two words in this statement say NOT ALL. that implies that SOME ARE legit. The money we make in our company is made from selling a membership. Period. The same way SAM’S CLUB makes their money. SAM’S does not make a cent off of the products sold in their store. They make the money on memberships and buy their products in bulk and pass on the savings to the consumer. We are not a get rich quick business, that isn’t what we are about. We sell memberships to people and they can do what they want with it..they can choose to take discounted trips (that were bought in bulk) or make their own trip on their own website, they may also choose to become a representative (just like the ones who sell Mary Kay, Avon, Skinny Wraps, Plexus, to name a few) and go to work building a team of people and make some extra money. How much they make is up to how much work they want to put into their business.. No work equals no pay, just like any where else. I might add that Education is a wonderful thing to have. I know a lot of people who have gone to college and got a degree. This is great especially if they can find a job when they graduate. Not all the time but sometimes, people pay a lot of money for a piece of paper that got them very far in debt. Sometimes that degree gets people a “job” fulfilling someone else’s dreams.
    I not here to argue, just help pass along a little knowledge. Have a blessed day.

    Yeah, it sounds like a pyramid scheme to me. Paying a monthly fee to be in a club to accumulate points towards a goal, and not receiving goods or services on a regular basis…yeah, pyramid scheme. From my understanding, representatives recruit people so those people can pay the monthly fees, and so on. It just seems risky. Sounds like it would be a better idea to just save the money you’d pay towards fees, and plan your own vacation. Sometimes in life, there is no real short-cut. You just have to be patient. #AllMyOpinion #iWillCheckMoreSourcesForReviews

    You aren’t ever refunded in cash but in Travel Dollars meaning you have to re-book further trips through Rovia to get the benefits

    So if you did find a whole trip cheaper elsewhere (which you can do if you don’t mind booking through two different sites for airfares and accom) you’re still out of pocket in real money terms

    People have to try things for themselves, instead of being easily deterred by ignorance. MLM is a 167 billion dollar industry. Warren Buffet, considered to be one of the greatest financial minds of all time, bought 3 MLM companies in a 5 year span; here in Chicago we like to call that a clue. As far as WV membership, every penny you spend can be used towards for travel. If everything cent, go towards travel, in actuality how much are you really spending?

    The rep portion is optional and is not for everyone. The travel industry is a 8.7 trillion dollar industry, by far the largest in the world. If all I have to do is pay 100 bucks down and 11/month to get a crumb of a 8.7 trillion dollar pie, I would like to consider that a deal.

    Its okay to be skeptic, people once thought the earth was flat. The choice for WV is a simple, you either want to travel at retail or wholesale (with tons of other perk); thats it. You even have a opprtunity to make money sharing the concept. Anyone who tries to make it more than this is truly over thinking this thing. If you want to continue to pay full price to travel, by all means do so, but refrain from bashing a concept you know little about.

And they also charge .75 cents processing fee… For each customer but the Avon rep puts in the order and when it asks for number of customers they only put 1 so they are charged .75 cents once and they get to pocket all the other .75 cents from each of their customers

    WV is a travel club. You pay a membership for a “product”(travel).I’m sure if they could bring you Ireland in a suitcase to make you feel better about paying for this membership then they would. How many other things do you pay a membership for (gym, sam’s, etc.)? How often do you use these services? Who do you tell/refer about you gym/sam’s “memberships” and don’t receive a dime. Do your research.

    Wiseone first off u don’t pay to work there, u pay to be a member to get the benefits making the extra money is a bonus, the money u pay goes straight to u as vacation points which u can use on your first vaca. Each point counts as $1. Pyramid scemes don’t give you benefits like this company, discounts everywhere, a personal assistant, car rewards, and everything u spend comes back to you as a percentage to your points. The whole thing helps you take vacations that you could probably never take unless u saved for months. Why not get paid to to help people have fun for less while it helps u also. I’ve tried pyramid schemes those are hard to sell. This sells itself. My group all just graduated from Morgan university and we’re all doing well for ourselves while vacation and being genuinely happy. So it’s all up to u. I never heard of a person that never to a chance that became successful. And 1 more thing bill gates owns Priceline gets a percentage of ur money everytime u book on his site, why not have your own and get your percentage too

Last time I checked no booking company pays you when you book thru them. No airline company pays you for booking directly thru them. Unless you know the business, learn the business, join the business everyone will have their personal opinions whether good or bad. If you have doubts speak with a rep and ask them the questions you may have, not someone who isn’t a member. Just my thought. If the company was a scam there wouldn’t be BMW’s all over paid for by World Ventures. Folks life is about taking chances. You will never know if this works if you don’t take a leap of faith.

It’s pretty simple to do. Please if you have not tried the company your knowledge is not what it should be to talk down to others. Knowledge is power but then again it is easier ti sit back and talk down about something and then say……oh….I didn’t know.

    My husband and I joined World Ventures one year ago. There is nothing about this company that is a scam! They are a very honest, caring and fast growing company. Yes you get cheap trips and can make money if you want to do some work of sharing it but most important is the personal development that this company helps with. We had done Amway, I did Party-lite and when we saw WV we didn’t hesitate on jumping aboard. No product to sort and distribute, no errors in orders to have to fix and a lot less time involved. We have qualified for our BMW, Residual income and grown as a couple all in 6 months(Sept 30, 2014). My husband would never be caught in front of a crowd with a microphone in his hand and now 6 moths later he stands up in front of a group and shares our story and the product.

    It was the best thing we did getting involved. Like others in the world today we didn’t have the money because my husband had lost his full time status at work but we put it on a credit card and have made back 4x the amount we paid.

    I’d like to leave you with one quote: “To get something that others want, you have to do something that others won’t” So you may not want it now but in the near future you will be asked again and again and again by all different people that you know and you will miss out on the best time in the company to get in. It’s a new company and yes you are going to read negative comments about it, just like when Amway, Mary Kay, Walmart, Target, Macy’s and any other big company went through. So the big question is do you trust the person who showed it to you? If so don’t hesitate and come aboard.

No thank you.. I can purchase my own vacation and I don’t have to hassel my friends, family and neighbors.. ugghhh good luck to you people involved. Im sure your family and friends run the other way when they see u LOL!!!

    Laura,
    Not everyone is that way and I agree we should always be professional in what we do and say. I love this company! There are lots of people who will put the company down because they do not have all of the information, been burned before or just think it is to good to be true so there for it can’t be. Please look it over and if you have any questions I will be more than happy to answer them for you.

    I good friend of mine has been with this company for 2 years. He tells me he loves this company and that I should truly look into this company. Trouble is outside of their website I am not finding a lot about them. It does sound like you may be able to take some very nice trips at a reduced cost. I have a very good job with great benefits. I do need to find a good part time job and it sounds good but after reading some of these comments not sure. Need help. Any great ideas for research on this company?

    Brandy, I do not know where you are living.. But if you are in the Dallas area.. Check out the Corporate Headquarters in Plano, Texas. You can take a tour there and ask all the questions you want :) If your not close,, give them a call.
    you can also do a research through ERNST & YOUNG the number one auditors. Worldventures has a 1000 page report in their database. where they put the white glove to our company. We have won 3 Travel Awards since 2011.

    I have worked with the company for over a year.
    Its truly awesome , and i understand if you have a full time job , but the trips in general are worth it … if just being a member.

    Depends on what kind of information you are looking for.

    I have been looking into this. My wife is head over heels about it, I am a bit more skeptical. I have done some background checks on the people that are in this, and I have found them to be legitimate and are making money with this Network system. But there is the catch 22 here also, if you do not believe in this it will show when you share it. Then you are paying money out and not getting others in producing a bad experience. The main idea is to get others to use this Vacation Experience and they have a good time on vacation and a little of that money from their vacation, help you and help others too. Yes the upper people are making money but so can you. Yes, you can earn points to help bring down your vacation costs, in some cases to almost nothing. The company also uses some of the money to help other, humanitarian trips (a group of people goes to another country to help families in need). As far as I see things, I give a little money in and could get some back if I get other involved or maybe not. I will use the Vacations Club and see what happens. As a company and the people involved, I think it is worth the time and effort, and if I can help a family or child in need, personally, that would be the icing on the cake. Win or Lose I plan on having FUN.

    I am a mechanical engineer who has lost the last five of my jobs due to outsourcing over seas and other reasons outside of my control. My wife is a doctor who is seeing the total destruction of the profession she loves from the unintentional affects of the new health care law.

    We saw World Ventures Dec.11, 2013, today is March 13,2014. We entered this endeavor with the understanding of no guarantee’s of profit or success. That is the very same way we both entered or primary careers, no one guaranteed me work after my training and no one guaranteed my wife she would make it through medical school and her internship. I did find comfort in finding out Warren Buffet the billionaire owns several multilevel marketing businesses. I really don’t mind following his lead on that one!

    As of today we are totally satisfied with all that World Ventures has presented itself as. We see great value for the dollar in all that World Ventures provides in their products and services.

    I made the decision to share this opportunity with several of my closest friends. As a direct result of my efforts my wife and I qualified for the BMW car bonus in 78 days. In my thirty seven years working in the industry I love never once was I given the opportunity to earn a BMW as a performance bonus. We are having a blast, meeting wonderful people and we are profitable. What conventional business you know of sees profit in three months?

    I have found many who take advantage of others in many industries, there will always be people who lie cheat and steal. In my last job two million dollars went missing between the CEO and the CFO, the company went bust, as Vice President of Engineering I qualified for 275 dollars a week unemployment. Are all CEOs and CFOs crooks? No, I just happen to know two that are! If you believe multilevel marketing is a scam then don’t do it!

    If you still don’t know what to think after reading my personal opinion from my direct involvement I defer to Sir Richard Branson, and I quote “The best way of learning about anything is by doing” so take his advice and go find out for yourself.

    Success is not for the chosen few, success is for the few that chose!

    I hope this was helpful, best wishes to all!

    Let the negative people have a closed mind to this and be negative. They are not the people you want to be vacationing with or working with anyways. We only want fun positive people who are willing to work a little bit and travel at the same time. “If you buy someone’s opinion, you buy their lifestyle.” I’m buying the opinions of the happily successful people in the world, not the sad negative people.

    I agree with you Ann. The rude comments left by people in the club to people who are just asking questions. Trying to do the research before jumping in is appalling. For me $200 is a lot of money then the $50 a month is a huge chunk out of my monthly income. For me it comes down to the nasty comments my members. People who will talk to others that way are not the kind of people I want to associate with.

    Ann says:
    March 5th, 2014 at 10:09 pm

    Looking at the other comments, There are a lot of rude comments form the people who do actually believe in this company. I don’t know if i want to buy into a company who has members who go on and leave rude remarks to someone who wants to know about the company, but is a little weary with all the scams out there. Do i really want to buy into a company who says that you are LAZY and IGNORANT for questioning if this is light??? I DONT THINK SO. There are a lot of scams out there, and just because i ask if this is real or a scam does not mean i have not looked into this company, just that I’m concerned that like all scams ( pyramid or not) that they are real and light and not just too good to be true. these comments from people who have bought into this company makes me second guess wanting to do so myself. As of now i say Im out, and nothing here has changed my mind.

    ok so when you take a vacation. 1. you have to take it with other members so there is a bigger discount for going? 2. what if I don’t want to go with others. 3. they say you can earn $ to pay for vacations. but I caught you cant use all your $ for a vacation. just part of it?
    And I have been in Amway and Quixtar basically the same company revamped. Same reasoning of what looks like a pyramid. this concept is taking out of text, because the more below the better benefits for the higher ups.
    Also I am not a fan of anything that thinks you should promote your whole life for its benefit. like make it or break it. I watched people lose out on their lives and their kids lives to reach that residual income. and then something in the business happens. and its all lost. never to regain your lost time. I was even an advanced unit leader for avon. over 70 people under me. a lot of time recruiting and training. I fell, and with my injury.my business fell too

    1. You don’t have to take it with others.
    2. if you dont go with others then you still get the same price , or you make your own trip. 3.you get money back 2 ways .. through travel dollars and dreamtrips reward points.

    Networking marketing is a great business form , it just take the right work ethic and product to work.

    About 30 minutes ago, I talked with a wonderful, older couple about this company, and I had been researching it the moment we set up the meeting a couple days ago.

    What have I learned? The company makes its money primarily through recruitment and membership fees. Do I have a problem with this concept? Not in the slightest, honestly.

    I think the concept is legit, there is an opportunity to make SOME money. Get rich? Possible, but unlikely. Make a little bit of profit? Probable if you extend the effort, just like anything else. The true profit center is memberships, on the percolation theory. Is it for me? No, not really.

    I dont think anyone is truly getting scammed, but I think it’s just not the type of project I’m interested in investing in.

    Spend money to make money, it’s a concept true for most business ventures, I’m just not interested in this process.

    So at the bank you work at there is a president right, and he makes the most money because he’s on top, and then under him there’s a vice president and some other guys that have been there awhile, then you’ve got managers under them and so on all the way down to the bank tellers and maintenance people, who make a tiny fraction of what your bank president does. So you tell me what kind of shape does that make?

    Fred says:
    February 4th, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    A pyramid scheme is an unsustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public. Vacations Sooner is supplying a quality product and service to people in exchange for money. Pyramid schemes are illegal and if this was one the U.S. government would not be accepting their tax dollars and they would be shut down instead. Just because it’s shaped like a pyramid doesn’t mean it’s a scheme to trick people out of their money, it is solely generating extra income for people who put the proper amount of work into it.

    Vacations sooner sells a service to people (highly discounted travel to amazing places all around the globe), if you believe in this idea you tell your friends about it, if your friends want to travel for really cheap and sign up through you, vacations sooner sends you a check. Pretty simple.

If you truely think Dreamtrips is a scam you stand to gain more than anyone. Because you “know” it is a scam then you “know” you can go on the trips for FREE! If you find it cheaper on another site(which you clearly do) you will go on the trip 100% free of charge. I hope it works for you honestly I do because you will be a member and realize that you made the right choice when you compare the prices for yourself. Think of me on your first trip.

    Fred you are either completely ignorant or your already involved in this scam and you’re trying to goad others into believing this bull shit. This is a scam like Avon is a scam and Mary Kay is a scam and bream is a scam. The only difference with Avon is that you get what you pay for as far as a product. This vacation idea is stupid. Why would anyone do this when we live in an age where we can hop online and find our own discounts thru the many many reputable sites that don’t force you to drop a monthly fee down. People like you don’t deserve the internet because it’s just an outlet for you to spread disinformation and con hardworking people out of their money.

    Why do you care so much if others are benefiting financially from this company, pretty sure that’s how every single company works in America, people make money, it’s just how the world works. If you want to be a closed minded person to a revolutionary new concept then don’t get involved, this company is going to succeed whether you do or not, so in the mean time don’t tell people this is a pyramid scheme because you are just flat out wrong. The company pays taxes to the government, if it was an illegal “pyramid scheme” the government would have shut it down a long time ago. OPEN YOUR EYES AND MIND UP. Not everything has to be structured like the corporate world which is obviously corrupt and only working out pretty well for a select group of people. This company is here to stay whether you ignorantly call it a pyramid scheme or not.

    Dude nobody is going to sit here a type out an entire explanation of how network marketing companies work to you just because you are too lazy to do the research yourself. It’s a somewhat complicated business model but it works and you are capable of understanding it, I promise. If you are really interested then educate yourself, read some books, I recommend The Business of the 21st century by Robert T. Kiyosaki and Go Pro by Eric Worre. This is a legitimate business, just because it looks better than most of the shitty business you are used to in America doesn’t mean you should just dismiss it as a pyramid scheme, that is extremely ignorant of you. If you don’t want to get involved then fine, the company will continue to operate and generate amazing experiences and revenues without you, but please don’t go around telling people this is a pyramid scheme because I have a good feeling you don’t know a damn thing about network marketing.
