About Bluegreen Vacations Club
Bluegreen began in the mid-1980s as a small company that sold and renovated residential properties in New England. Its vacation ownership business started with MountainLoft, a resort located in the Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Bluegreen has been an industry leader since the start. In fact, it formed one of the first partnerships between a retailer and a vacation ownership company. The alliance between Bass Pro Shops (the large retailer of fishing and hunting gear) and Bluegreen Vacations helped the brand create a new resort. The addition to the Bluegreen Vacations family focuses on an outdoorsy lifestyle. Known as the Wilderness Club in Ridgedale, Missouri, the resort continues to be one of the most popular Bluegreen resorts.
Today, Bluegreen offers excellent vacation ownership to over 220,000 members at over 60 resorts. Members can use their points to book their perfect vacations year after year, no matter where they want to go. Through partnerships with vacation exchange networks, Bluegreen makes it possible to get flexibility out of their vacation ownership options.

How Do Bluegreen Vacations Club Points Work?
When you buy a Bluegreen vacation ownership, you receive an allotment of points representing your timeshare value. The amount of points your vacation ownership is worth depends on a number of factors. These include the size and type of the unit, the season and week of ownership, and the popularity of the resort.
Points needed for various vacations at Bluegreen resorts range from 3,000 to 15,000. It all depends on the time of year, location, and length of your trip. Vacation owners can choose to borrow points from a subsequent year or save their points instead of going on vacation.
Bluegreen Vacations Club points work in a few different ways. Owners can also use their Bluegreen Points to travel the world. Bluegreen has partnered with Resort Condominiums International (RCI), a vacation exchange company. RCI allows vacation owners to deposit their points and use them to exchange the value of their timeshares for a stay at a resort almost anywhere in the world.
