Seems the founders (Mike Azcue and Wayne Nugent) were nominated for Ernst&Young's Entreprenour of the year in North-TX/AR/OK-area. Not sure what the criteria are, but the followers are sporting this like a medal.
Their idea is to sell hotel rooms at discount. Based upon statements from members, they can offer a price some 30 % below what other services can offer. The hotels are real enough, and there might be a real discount involved.
Even so, you have to travel a lot to make this a good deal. They charge a $300 sign-up fee, plus $60 a month. I ran the numbers, and I have to spend one weekend a month at a high-end hotel to make this a good deal.
And then the usual stuff comes up. If I can recruit 4 other people, their monthly charges will cover mine, and I can enjoy discount traveling without additional charges. So basicly, I can sign up for a bad deal, but if I can trick my friends into signing up for the same deal, I will get a good deal. Seems familiar.
Anyone else run into these guys?

One gutsy lady and I applaud her and her husband for standing firm.
