Loews Daylight Savings sale- not!

Logged on this AM to take advantage of the Loews daylight savings sale. Not seeing much of a savings. Royal Pacific standard room unchanged at $304 per night, Jurassic Park room down from $609 to $559. Kinda what I expected, much ado about nothing!

I second this, I am actually paying less than the spring savings rate on our stay in april, and I could have gotten the same rate as spring savings a while back with stay more, mind you I am only paying a dollar less than this per night but still

I was helped by a computer glitch during the winter and secured a room for $259 per night with Stay More. It was only for 2 nights and I don't think I should have gotten a discount...

What I really wanted was a discount on the family suites, but not sure I want to pay $600/night...

Checked rates again. It's a little lower, but not much. The APH rate is still better and worth getting 1 ap for the rate.

Edited to add - I checked May 2-4 and no discount for 2 nights.

Showing me about a $20 discount at Portofino Bay for 3 nights May 29-June 1

People on Facebook are irate and here is their response just a few minutes ago

We sincerely apologize for the technical difficulties yesterday evening into the early hours of today. Our booking engine is up and running so you will see the discounted rates once you select the type of room you are interested in. The promotion is subject to availability. For those of you interested in Universal Orlando hotels, the discount is based on length of stay, so the longer you stay, the more you save. We encourage you to call with specific questions:

So no sale at all- WOW!

It's not Universals fault it's Loews hotels, but do what is best for your family.

Last night after having no luck with their website, I called the hotel and I was told they wouldn't be able to book reservations using this sale until 7am this morning.

I called back right at 7am and I was just told that the dates I wanted were already sold out for this promotion.

Really?!

Yeah, it looks like all they did was relabel the Stay More Save More rates as "Cyber Spring Forward" rates. When I put in my dates, the rate I'm getting is EXACTLY the same thing it was yesterday for SMSM, just with a new name. Oh, and free Wifi.

Yeah that was pretty crappy They still have nothing posted for my dates late June except for rack rate, can't get any other discount to show up.

Well maybe no Universal this trip if they don't at least put out a APH rate
