Qatar Airways just added an interesting offer up on their website that requires attending to a 90 minute timeshare presentation during the stay. You can read more about this offer here.
You will get two nights at the brand new JW Marqui Dubai (you can read my review of this hotel here) with breakfast + 10000 Qatar Airways Privilege Club miles for $199.
Word of warning: Under no circumstances should you actually purchase a timeshare. They are an utter waste of money and you would likely regret the purchase for rest of your life.
If you don’t mind wasting 90 minute of your time and can keep your cool during high pressure sales pitch, there is really no downside for this offer.
There are some restrictions to qualify for this offer that you can read on the terms and conditions below.
I guess that I have to recruit a wife so that I can start taking part for this timeshare presentations. This offer looks rather good.
