    I'm sure its somewhere in here, but what are the drivers of who gets PIN offers and with what frequency? Is it more of a frequent guest situation? We're DVC, so there really isn't much in it for us, but I am interested for friends, etc.

    And that is the million dollar question, my friend! :rotfl2:

    No one knows for sure, but sometimes creating a profile on WDW.com or requesting a planning DVD, stating that you have been before, but not for a few years seems to trigger stuff...

    Interesting... sort of like playing hard to get - keep 'em guessing!

    Good to know!

    I also answer their surveys... we were stopped in DL to register our email. At first DH didn't want to but I did because I figured it could help with PINS... and, it didn't!:surfweb:

    And ... just how did you receive these pins?

    (said as a detective would when looking for clues)

    I am not sure of the correct answer to this question; however, I just paid off my September trip last week and received my first pin code ever (after about 15 years and staying on site) yesterday.

    I've been wondering myself how to get the PIN. I've ordered DVD's and been registred on WDW. Hope someday one comes my way.

    I was messing around on the Disneyland website the other day, checking dates and rates and the very next day I received a PIN for the Disneyland hotels. :woohoo: It was for specific reduced rates (not a % off or free dining or anything). I was already a member on the site, but logging in and checking rates obviously triggered something.

    I am hoping to go to Disney World in April though... so holding out hope for a PIN from them sometime soon. I signed up to the DVD, checked dates and rates, and have crossed my fingers and toes!!

    I'm kicking myself though, because I'm pretty sure I received a PIN several months ago from Disney World and deleted it as spam because I had no idea what a PIN was at the time. Thanks Dis Boards!!! :) Boy I wish I could get that email back and see what it was all about!!:rolleyes1

    I mostly get mine via email, from Disney Destinations. But I have also gotten a few by snail mail, in my maiden name, mailed to my parent's address :confused3 (an address I have NEVER lived at and I have been married for 12 years this Sunday!)

    I have been kind of wondering the same thing. For some reason I have gotten a semi steady stream of PINs for Disneyland when I want Disney World. :confused3 I use to live in So Cal and had annual passes but I doubt that has anything to do with it unless they stalked me and got my new Texas address as a couple of them came snail mail. :rotfl2:

    I wish I knew...:confused3 because my mom & brother who just went with us and go only every 3-6 years have already received two each but they are to my email account since that was how I had booked their last trip.

    Me... I have not received one yet.
