Thanks! Now that 2009 is here, I expect this thread to become more active. Fortunately, others (Bubba's Mom and Goofy) have paved the way for date/rate threads and I just have to follow their lead.

I'm ticked I'm being told Super Saver does not qualify for Plat upgrade and I KNOW it does!

I'll add my booking adventure to date:

December 12 - 19
PBH
Club level 2 Queens
$335/night, but changes to $394 for the last night, the 18th (for 3 adults)
AAA Rate

I will wait to see if Universal extends the 7/4 promo, or something like it, then change to that - I am hoping that happens!

One observation: the term "supersaver" seems misplaced. I don't see the hotels use it to describe the current 7/4 promotion, and as a result it confuses me when mentioned by others (unless I am missing its use on the websites). I think it would clear things up if it were used to describe special rates given by the hotel properties, not outside organizations.

The AAA rate is quite less than the rates posted by the hotels for the same period. And I learned this: be careful when using any website for booking a "split" period; I have six days at value and one at holiday, or premium (the highest rates typically charged). The websites tend to give strange rate totals in this situation. I ended up calling AAA to get the correct rates in place. Added bonus: I now have the name and phone number of the AAA agent who booked my room, so it will be easy to change rates if and when a better deal comes along.
