Got $1? You can buy a timeshare! And we'll throw in a sunset cruise in Hawaii, an Orlando hotel stay, tickets to a top Vegas show and for those of you in the Poconos, a lovely set of Melamine dishware just for listening to us talk about it.



These days, people are practically being paid to take a timeshare week off someone's hands. Look no further than eBay and you'll find auctions on timeshares for $1.
