Pin Code/Discount Question

i have a pin code for 2014 discounts that expires tomorrow (1/5-3/2, 3/16-4/12, 35% off deluxe/30% off mod/25% off value). what i am wondering is, if i don't book now, is this code likely to become available to the general public eventually? we are planning on staying a few nights after our cruise in february but still haven't decided what resort we want to stay at or even the exact length of our stay, and i'm really not ready to book yet. what do y'all think?

The public offers do mirror the pins, sometimes having fewer dates.

If you know you'll be going I'd personally book a few nights so I could get the discount and then switch it around as it got closer. You'd still be able to adjust your resort and dates if needed with a little help from GS.

My pin for these dates was 20% off Moderates. Oh we'll, booked POR for late Feb.

thanks for the reply! do you know if that would still lock in a discount for me if i booked a mod & then later wanted to switch to a deluxe, or vice-versa (since the discount percentage would change)?

BOOK! Yes, IF there is availability still left, you will be able to make changes to different resorts, change days, etc. (sometimes certain resorts book up with pin codes, they only have a certain amount of rooms blocked for that pin) Book now, change later...there's just no knowing what the public offers will be and if you are lucky enough to get a pin, you should jump on it.

You can always cancel it or use a better/different offer too, but this way you will have at least locked in the pin code before it expires.

Just checked my wife's email, she had a different pin offer and had no idea what a pin code offer was. Hers was for Adult dining at kids price. The 20% seems to be a better deal.
