Worth the wait to Black Friday?

Post by RhondaK » Thu Sep 14, 2017 11:04 am

We are going the GPRM in February 2018, (plane tickets already booked), but I have been hesistate to book our rooms as I would like to see if a better discount is offered. The discount being offered now is 15%, I can't remember if last years Black Friday discount was better then the early booking promotion or not.
Any input would be greatly appreciated if it is worth the wait or to take advantage of the early booking discount.

Last year Royal suites in RM in Dec was 35% off. At black friday, 10% additional was added to the discount.

Not sure if the same will be this year. Lot's of things have been changing.

Hope this helps.

I think last year's Black Friday was 10% off whatever was out there at the time. So, if they are still running the 15%, it would be 10% off of the 15% off.

Checked a posting I submittted last yr on Black Friday and RM was 30% off plus another 10 for black fri however I just got a e-mail that I don't understand. Says something about 2017 offers. Maybe someone will explain this to me.

Why do I even try ?

I have a reservation already booked in Feb. for PV that I got at a good discount rate. I was hesitant about doing it early as I knew that Black Friday would always give you a bit extra off. I corresponded with the TC about potential future discounts and whether they would apply or not.

Here is the response I got from them -

According to rebook for a better rate Please be informed that as long the reserved room category is available in our system we are able to proceed with a rebooking

That seems relatively straightforward to me but when I call in about this of course I am told sorry we can't do it. I have been a TC member for over seven years now and although there are definitely benefits available, the booking and the reservations are always a complete hassle. I have talked to two people at the TC about this year and get the pat answer sorry we cannot do this with the Black Friday discounts but then why send out an email that says TAKE AN EXTRA 10% OFF !!.
I guess it is too easy when you talking to someone over 1000 miles away to brush them off but I hate to say it, this is the last time that I will be brushed off - my TC membership is good for several more years with a lot of weeks left but the hassles just seem to be souring my vacations.

Sorry for the need to vent but I guess this is a case of Caveat Emptor and foolish me I trusted them.
