I received a pin for free dining for our trip from 12/1-12/8. This is my first time at POR as CBR was the only other mod option we had. Also, the only rooms available were Royal rooms, and I opted for pool view. Not sure if you meant promos in general or pins. I should also note that I booked only a few hours of receiving the email.

We booked with a Disney Visa and were told no free dining offered with preferred rooms. That does not make sense to me. If I am willing to pay extra for preferred then they should be happier to get more of my money. :}

Apparently they can book up,all the preferred rooms without offering free dining. More money for Disney than if they gave you that room with free dining.

Discounts are made to fill rooms. Preferred rooms at resorts fill up fast, especially with families with small children. No need to offer discounts.

You cannot pick and choose what booking categories you want on a discount; they do not "need" your extra money, they have plenty of people booking those categories.

Disney got very, very savvy about two years ago with values and moderates and created booking categories based on requests and they are having no trouble filling preferred rooms.

You got 2 misinformed CMs. I have a POR preferred room booked for Sept.

Are you going the end of Sept? It seems that the weeks at the end of Sept is more popular then the beginning of Sept. I booked our POR preferred room with FD on the morning that FD was announced to the gen public but I have seen preferred rooms still offered as recent as a few days ago. Our dates are 9/2 to 9/10.
