Can I sue for a refund due to misrepresentation during a travel program that I purchased?

Details given in presentation do not match those actually given. Contract was signed stating that “I agree this document is consistent with the verbal description of the benefits and services of the membership made by the seller”. True … the contract did match what we were promised, but unfortunately, it does not work as it was stated in the presentation.

It is difficult to guide you as to your ability to sue with out knowing more of the details.  Generally speaking, the misreprensentation must be what is known as a "material" misrepresentation and they had to have known or should have known that it was.  Seek help.  Good luck.
