You can also call to see if they have it attached to your name. I did get the pin by email, but when I called they also had it attached to my name so I didn't even have to tell them. Sadly, I was just getting quotes today.

Completely random.

I tend to side with those who claim that ordering the planning DVD, saving unreserved trips in your personal profile, and maintaining a pattern of activity on their website tends to keep your account in the "tease them with a discount pin" category. My experience is that I'm receiving pins for dates corresponding exactly to the same time periods for which I am researching lodging availability while logged in.

And for those who wonder if having reservations will lessen the opportunity to receive a pin, rest assured this isn't the case. My 2010 trip was on the books for well over a month when I was blessed with a pin allowing me to convert from room only discount to full-up free dining.

But I will agree that the chances of getting a pin are exactly ZERO if you haven't opened a profile and registered an email at the main Disney site, opting in for marketing emails and promotions.

However, like many others I have done all of this and never get a PIN number. Others seem to get a new pin offer every few months.

Well, all I can say is YMMV. But I'll pass some at you in hopes you get one for when you can use it...

Same here. I have never received a PIN by email, snail mail, or had one attached to my name in their system. I've signed up for everything I can possibly sign up for and have more planning DVD's and maps than I could use in a lifetime.

Your date was also included in the current bounce back offer, so it likely will be included in the public discounts (whenever they're announced).

Pin

We have gotten a pin almost every year whether we were going or not but not this year. DH and I are going from 9/26 to 10/2 for our 20th wedding anniversary. Free dining ends right before we leave but we managed to get a 30% room discount for 2 days of our 5 night/6 day stay. Well, I guess 2 days is better than none. And, we ARE going to Disney so we can't complain too much.

us too - but I think Disney has "our number" aka knows we're hooked and thus isn't bothering to send us pins.

I stopped getting pin codes when I bought my first AP in 2010.
