How do you know you have a bounceback offer?
 
Do you get an email during your stay? How do they determine who gets one? Or is it more a period of time that they offer it?

Thanks

They normally leave the bounceback offer in your room. I believe if there is not one left, you can ask about it. :) Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

The bounce back offer currently is a page in the Be Our Guest book they hand you when you check in.

Just call ext. 8844 from your room phone and ask if a bouncebacks is available.

Yes, this is what they are doing now. I think a lot of people don't look at that booklet. There are a couple of tear out pages in it with the BB offer. I booked for August when we were there last week.

I don't think i have ever paid attention to that until i really started reading this forum. I will have to really check that out in November to see if there is one!

There's always been one in the Welcome Packet when I've gone, and if for some reason there isn't, you can ask for a Bounceback flyer at the front desk. I switched rooms during my last stay and left my flyer in the old room, so I went by the front desk and they gave me another one.

The flyer only lists discounts for Deluxe and Mod resorts, but they also have discounts for Values, it's just not mentioned on the flyers. Also, have your confirmation number for your current trip ready - I presumed that calling from the room meant they could see you were a guest, but I called twice and both times, they insisted on my booking number to confirm I was really a current guest.

I wouldnt have known this was there if not for the disboards. I am surprised they don't make more of an effort to get you to rebook before you leave. quite honestly I forgot about it and would have done it for September but forgot...if they had called to remind me I would have booked.

They have tried to make it easy by putting it in your room. Unfortunately in this day, people just spy them, and stick them in their suitcase before they leave and get home and toss it in the trash when they realize you have to book it down there.

I think putting it in your welcome packet is a great move forward, since they do not have to print a kadjillion of them. If someone ignores it in the welcome packet, or does not take the time to read it, shame on them.

I disagree but thats what is great about these boards, everyone has their own opinion. I was so excited to be there that we went out exploring and headed to the park to enjoy it. I didnt think to read it when there was so much to do!

If you don't have a flyer in the room and you don't ask the front desk if they have one, don't just trust the front desk if they tell you one isn't available. We've had that happen before. We were on the hunt for one a couple of years ago. I knew there was a bounceback available because of the disboards. We asked 2 different CMs at the front desk on different days and they both told us if there wasn't a card in our room, there wasn't one available. One of the CMs even looked around at the front desk area and said there must not be one. I knew there was because of the DIS. I finally figured out to just call 8844 and of course there was one available and we booked it. The phone line CM also told us that we probably would have had better luck with housekeeping than the front desk, since it is housekeeping that puts them in the rooms. She said it didn't suprise her that the front desk didn't know since they don't do the bounceback booking or the card distribution.

Actually, I think a lot of cards disappear from the rooms because people book the bounceback and then take the card with them so they have the bounceback dates in case they later decide they want to try to change their trip dates (guilty)...or in the case of my DD when she was a toddler because she liked the clock and the white rabbit that used to be on the card and insisted on keeping it. I had no clue until much later that it wasn't routine to put a new card in the room when a new guest came in or at least to check to make sure the original was there and replace it if it wasn't. I had always thought they were guest specific, but they aren't.

With this bounce back, can the dining plan be added without purchasing tickets? Thanks!

Kaarin 03-14-2013 09:53 PM

does anyone think the dates listed will be the dates when they discount rooms as well?
