We Have the Antidote To Freezing January Temperatures, But You Have to Act Fast

It’s January. No surprise here, it’s been cold in most areas of the United States lately. But do you know where it’s not cold? The Dominican Republic. Yep, highs in the upper 80s this week. Imagine stepping off the plane and feeling that warm blast of humid air and tropical fragrances wafting toward your nose. In no time, you’d be on the beach, drink in hand, watching the sunset. Sound good? Keep reading for a wrap up of January’s member promotions, which are about to fade into the sunset if you don’t act fast.


Pictured above is Presidential Suites Cabarete in Puerto Plata, an all-new resort that is included in our January promotion, sure to warm you from a Jack Frost’s icy grasp.

This month’s promotion is open to all members: enjoy a $97* exchange fee for Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Dominican Republic resorts, plus get entered to win 2 adult All-inclusive fees. It’s the perfect antidote to the winter blues!

In addition to that promotion, we also have another one open to all members. In January, deposit a red or gold week and get entered to win 1 of 3 RTX weeks.** It’s a vacation bonanza!

If you find the Dominican Republic is a bit too far to travel, or you have let your passport lapse, we’re featuring four gorgeous South Carolina and Florida resorts this month as well. It’s the off season, which means no waiting for a table, no crowded beaches or attractions, reduced traffic, but bright, sunny weather is the norm, perfect for golf, fishing, and lounging!
