I was planning on staying at the Poly with the 30% RO discount, but when the summer discounts were extended, the Poly discount dropped to 20%.

I checked prices (rack rate) and saw that a garden view room at the BC/YC was about $100. per night cheaper than a standard room at the Poly when applying the discounts listed above.

What you need to be aware of though is that when I tried to book a room at the BC using the extended summer discount RO rate of 30%, only the Pool & Lagoon rooms (and above) were available for the 30% off discount. It did not apply to the garden view rooms. This made a big difference.

Originally I figured that a standard room at the Poly would be $379.81 per night including taxes after the 20% discount, which it was. I had figured that the BC/YC garden view room would be $283.00 per night including taxes after the 30% discount, for a savings of almost $100. per night. But since the 30% off only applied to the more expensive Pool/Lagoon rooms, the total price for one of those rooms at the BC/YC came out to be $343.36 per night including taxes.

So in the end the savings between the Poly and the BC/YC was only about $36.00 per night, not the $100. per night that I had anticipated. That made my decision easy. For the extra $36.00 per night I chose the Poly. If the garden rooms at the BC/YC had been available at the 30% off RO rate, I would have had a hard decision...

Keep that in mind when comparing prices between the two resorts if using the extended summer RO discount.
Oh, I did not know that. Thank you! That changes things for sure. I will check it out right away.
