No worries I've also seen some of the false reports in the past. I might have questioned this too if I hadn't seen so many people posting similar stories. Those stories are the reason I didn't give up and kept calling back week after week and it finally paid off for me. I'm not sure if this is the first year that people have been "given" free dining. I haven't been following the boards for the last couple of years but back when I did, I don't remember anyone being able to get it without a PIN or a GP offer. I just know I am thrilled and still in shock that I got it this year.
