Westin Timeshare Deal Data Points?

I got an email recently for a Westin timeshare stay. It's similar to ones I've received in the past but I've never done it. This offer is 5 days/4 nights Westin Cancun, free breakfast and evening cocktails daily, plus 15k MR points or $75 hotel credit, in exchange for sitting through a two hour timeshare presentation. Has anyone done one of these ? They say elite benefits "may" not be recognized and it seems the nights don't count toward status. Wondering if anyone has had experience with these. Did the stay/nights count for status? Did you get any elite benefits?

The t&c I got are below. Thanks!
