TA Shipboard Credits

Question for you DCL experts....

I'm anxious for Disney to post 2015 travel dates and am hoping to book a 2015 Alaska cruise right away. As I'm preparing my plan, I noticed that the DU ship credits currently offered say book now through August 31 and must travel by end of 2014. In your experience, does DU "always" have credits available? or do these offers come and go? The Alaska cruise isn't going to be cheap, so I was looking forward to getting some "free cash" to spend onboard. Now, I'm a little concerned that their won't be a comparable offer when I finally get to book and/or travel.

Dreams Unlimited has a good history of offering OBC. Occasionally they adjust the amounts that they offer.

I don't use DU but I always received shipboard credit from my TA and I would suspect DU is the same.

I had a good experience with DU. We had originally booked a May 2014 cruise with a $250 OBC. We changed it to April 2014 and the cruise fare went up significantly and they gave us the new OBC for $350

Is there a way you can check if your TA has remembered to add your OBC to your account?
Thank you for any advice you can give me.
