Default 2nd Lifestyle Preview

I was down for my 1st Lifestyle Preview in May '07. I'm planning my 2nd one in March. I was told when I called for a reservation that you can only get a guest member card and no free meals, etc. I have read on TOTV many people have come back a 2nd, 3rd and 4th time on Lifestyle Preview. If anyone reading this post has come back more than once, can you please let me know how it worked.

Thanks for your help! Can't wait to get back!

My 1st preview was in 2003. I attempted a 2nd in 2004 but like you, "only 1 per customer" Fortunately at the time "Village Dollars" were being used so since we had some left we were able to use those for "freebies".

I came down in 9/06 for the first time and was planning to rent for a second week (9/07)through the villages rental for one week. They offered me a second life style preview instead of renting. I received the same benefits as the first time. I clearly told them prior to the second life cycle visit that I was not planning on buying until late 2008 or early 2009.
Interesting point was that I also rented with a private party for a week in 11/07 and received the guest pass. The agent that showed me homes the second time gets the data on the renters and sent a email prior to my arrival in 11/07 for my third visit.

Kits: That is all consistent with what I have recently been told by TV sales staff.

kitscottage, maybe you're not getting the freebies because your return visit is within 12 months? Perhaps you only get the deals if your visit was more than one year ago??

Our first visit was in April 2007 on the Lifestyle and our second was in December 2007 - same realtor and same lifestyle plan. Did not even ask for the Lifestyle Preview the 2nd time. They just gave it to us.
We did not buy but plan to as soon as what we want becomes available.

I've been on two life preview programs. The way I understand it, your TV rep wiill arrange it for you.

When I emailed my rep and told him we would be there at Thanksgiving, he put it in for us

You folks are missing the point of the Lifestyle Preview Plan. It is supposed to be to find out about The Villages and if you like it, buy a place and move in. Not to rip The Villages off for every freebie you can get as many times as you can. I don't want you kind of people moving here. Go rip off Dell Webb or Stonecrest!

Hi We were offered the Lifestyle Preview 2 times. 1st through the web page, The 2nd offer was given by our salesman but we did not take him up on it. Just bad timing Xmas.

My friend and I will each be buying a house in TV in about a year. I don't think it's greedy to ask for a 2nd Lifestyle Preview considering the profit they will make on 2 home sales.

I was told last week you can come on down a 2nd time but the freebies are not included.

I don't think anyone's ripping TV, it's all marketing
