My pin code for 30% off saved me money off my aph rate at hrh. About $30 off the aph rate. I also won't stay anywhere else.

Hello!
I think I got the same pin code that a few pp's mentioned. It's embedded in the e-newsletter, but does say its a unique offer code. 40% off PBR & RPR, 30% of HRH. Good Sundays-Thursdays, now til Christmas. Can't redeem on line, must call the 800# listed.

This is our first trip to UO, I'm used to Disney. Can anyone tell me if this is common to have to call to redeem the offer, or will I get a sales pitch. Not complaining, just preparing. Also, I skimmed the fine print, but want to know if the rules are as strict as Disney free dining or RO discount. Right now I'm booked with Travelocity for a Saturday - Tuesday. Can I just pay a higher rate for Saturday and get the 40% off Sun & Mon or do all dates have to fall between Sun & Thrus?

Thanks for your help. So excited about our trip, just trying to learn more about how Universal does things before I call.

No sales pitch. Nothing to sell.

I also received the pin code in the Newsletter, called and had a lovely chat with the representative and saved almost $50 from the AP rate. Which could develop into a bigger savings since I no longer *have* to purchase the AP. I still may, like I told my daughter, I've budgeted $500 for souvenirs and with the AP I could adjust that down to $450 but instead will probably keep the $500 budgeted and get $550 worth of stuff!
