    for a family that does not live in my house or use my email! I contacted Disney and hope they can straighten it out, but really the poor LYNCH family is going to miss out on all these great deals--it is like they hit the pin code jackpot---summer special one week, cruise special another, free dining in the fall then the percent off after Tgiving.
    I have never gotten a pin code, but this adds insult to injury when it comes to my email in box!:rolleyes1

    Ouch. That is a Diz Villans move for sure. Give you OTHER people's pin codes. :rotfl:

    Yeah I know how you feel. We went with our friends this past August and since I was doing all the planning we used my e-mail address for them. They keep getting pin codes and I get nothing. Luckily none of their pins have been for my next planned trip around Thanksgiving time or I'd really be flipping out!:rotfl2:

    I would TOTALLY keep them for yourself! They came to YOUR email, right? I know you don't need them, but if your plans ever change......;)

    I got two yesterday. (Addressed to my mom; not me, since I booked her on our last vacation, then cancelled. ) It's like "they" KNOW we booked at Universal this year instead of Disney. So, so tempting.......:cool2: I may have to use them.....

    Does not ork that way. The PINS can be used by the folks named on them, only. If he called to use the PIN they'd say, only if your name is Mt. Lynch!! :rotfl:

    Yep I used to always get them for the Talpin family - whom I had never even heard of. I also get them for the people who have traveled with us (Just got free dining through 8/14 yesterday for friends that went with us in 2003. It makes me crazy. I have never EVER gotten a PIN code intended for me.

    That's because some other family is opening up their mail right now and wondering who the "??BLANK??" family. They are getting your pin codes.

    It drives me crazy to get them but so far, the deals haven't been for my travel dates.

    A pin code came for my brother the other day, and he only went with me for two (2) days on my December trip! He was listed as one of my travelers. I have never gotten one as many times as I have gone. Go figure!!!!:confused3

    We've never stayed onsite before, and we're not sure if SIL's family has or not. But a couple months ago, we got a code in the mail with SIL's family's name on it. I have no idea how their name got put with our address, since we don't share the same last name :confused3

    Have any of you asked Disney if you could use them? I believe I have seen some previous posts on here about people being able to use them, as long as it comes to your email.

    Same here--I keep getting them for someone I priced a trip out for years ago. I've written Disney, I've called Disney, I've begged Disney to change their records. Everything else I get from Disney to that e-mail comes in my name,just not the PIN codes.

    So, Monday, I got a free QSDP pin for-yep-that person.

    I went on a trip with a friend last summer and SHE got a card in the mail for free quick service dining in April-May. I'm the one who booked our trip!

    I did. The pin codes are for my mother, who went on a trip with us last year. I was told that I can't use them since we don't have the same last name.

    I did calla nd ask and was told no to using them. I wrote to them and asked for the name to be removed from my email address. Hopefully someone will be able to fix it.
