Free dining with postcard PIN

I do not have a Disney VISA and the last time I was at Disney was in February 2006. I got the postcard PIN for free dining in November 2008 and had to use it by 12/31/08 (I believe) and it was good for virtually any dates during the first half of 2009. I was totalling surprised when I got it!

Okay here's a question... I can't remember what the dates etc were for the free dining with Visa... I forgot about it when I booked my trip with DH for this upcoming weekend... Is it possible we could get free dining? I used the Visa to pay for the trip...

Thanks!

Free Dining in November '08

We are Disney Visa cardholders and were sent a letter in Sept. with a PIN and an offer for Free Dining in November '08. We took advantage of that as a special bonus trip because we have a trip already planned for 10 days at the end of June beginning of July '09. We were able to use it with a 5 day 4 night pkg. There was no bounceback offer when we checked out either, but shortly after that they came out with the 4/3 free offer. I never received an offer in April for free dining in Sept. Interesting how the offers are different. Right now we are taking advantage of a 5x offer for Disney points on our visa in the categories of gas, dining, airline, and groceries. We had it until 12/31 and then got another offer to extend it from Jan. 1 - March 31 (I think I am remembering that correctly!) Hoping that we will get a free dining offer, but realizing that we just bought BLT as DVC members so will probably not be eligible if we are staying with points. Shucks!

We went last year in September. I booked it in January. Then got a pin in march and then the free dining went public. I did the math and for us, with where we were staying the free dining was the best deal. I also went through it with a CM and they agreed. We have bounceback for this year Sept. 26th - Oct. 4th (about a week later than we went last year). We haven't received any offers this year. No pins, no disney visa offers (even though I have one). It is just so random. Hopefully they offer it again for people although I am a little worried about the ADR 90 day window and free dining. Last year our DD3 turned out to be terrified of characters and I had a terrible, terrible time trying to get different ADR's while we were there. I was begging my way into places. Sometimes I would be checking 5 or 6 restaurants for a meal and nothing was available.

The bounceback is a special offer given only to those who have recently stayed at Disney.

The Free Dining early this year is available with a pin code and had a limited amount of time that you could book.

I doubt that they'd be able to help you out at this time, but it never hurts to call and ask.

Should I book the room and the tickets or book the room only, wait for the code and then add the tickets?

I know it started at the end of August and went to Oct 1st or 2nd. In September people were posting a picture of the flyer for the bounceback. If you do a search maybe you can find it. I know I saved mine I will look for it.

Has there been a minimum stay requirement in the past for FD?? I'm thinking yes but can't remember what it was.

TIA!

Jumping on board - we were originally planning a Dec trip, but may go down in Sept for our daughter's 1st birthday!

Does anyone know what the dates were for Free Dining in '08?

Also, I know you used to be able to book a trip starting the last day of Free Dining & have it good through your trip, but am guessing that's no longer an option, does anyone know?
