I had an account set up for the longest time and had no luck getting PINs. I set up a new account with a different email address and have received at least 3 in the last year. Of course my DH also received one via snail mail (weird because he never does the booking). We are in southwestern Ontario.

Sorry to ask this, but what are PINS and how do you earn them? We are Canadian also and I've never even heard of PINS!?

PIN codes are special discount codes that are given out to people. They can only be used by that person. You can't "earn" them, it's just kind of luck of the draw.

Yes have hope! We are booked for September with a room discount pin.

I have no idea they decide who gets them, but both my email and my husbands get them.

I save a lot of vacations and request a DvD planner every year?

I'm from Quebec and never heard of them.
Do you get them by being registered on the WDW website?

Ok, I do have an account though...
Oh well, I guess it's just luck then.

I'm from southeastern Ontario and have been getting pins for the last few years. We booked our current reservation for April back last fall and received a PIN a few weeks later that we were able to apply to our stay. Saved us over $400 on the room. We've gotten 3 more pins since then, but haven't been able to use them, since we won't be going back again this year.

From Sask and I have had PINS before, but not with the consistency and frequency that some others seem to have!

Laura, if you don't mind, what was that PIN for? I'm actually heading down on the 28th of Sept and now I'm curious as to what discounts may already be in the ether.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Sneakiestpete, thanks for your post. I am from Saskatchewan also and it gives me a glimmer of hope but I do think there are way more pins offered to the eastern provinces. Anyhow I logged in to both my and my dh's disney accounts last night and saved a couple of vacations on each. I am even thinking of setting up a third account under my work email or maybe setting up a new hotmail account for the benefit of a third account.

I kind of sound desperate don't I?
