Universal sent me a PIN code!!!

I've never received an offer from Universal before, and I'm so thrilled! They sent me 30% off for any dates between the end of August and Christmas Day. We have a lot going on this fall, we're supposed to be moving, but I don't know that I can pass this up, with the discount AND The Walking Dead experience taking over HHN.

We've been getting some lately too. We got 50% off our room in June.

That is kind of what I was thinking. I wasn't planning on going back to Orlando until next fall after the expansion was open and the crowds died a little bit, but Universal keeps sweetening the deal for me. I'm a sucker for a bargain.

I was kind of thinking discounts might scale back dramatically next year too due to the new HP.

Since I could go on and book now with the SMSM rate I reserved our room for next fall. I thought they might possibly cut back on those rates too and since we were going anyway I just wanted to lock in the room now at a discounted price.

No rhyme or reason as to who gets them and who doesn't..you can go to UniversalOrlando.com and sign up for email alerts, try pricing out a vacation etc..It may help your chances, it may do nothing
