"Free dining" requires paying rack rate for the room. Getting 30-40% off rack rate, even if only for the room, could very possibly save you more than paying full price and paying for meals in advance, which is essentially what "free dining" is.
This is exactly what I was thinking. When you are booking a deluxe hotel, the room discount usually results in much higher savings than free dining. You need to run your numbers again assuming a 30% discount on the deluxe room (and then add in the cost of the dining plan) to get a better idea of your options.
