    Default Just booked a "free" wdw trip

    Thanks, SR! I've been cashing out for Disney Giftcards exclusively for the last 2+ years. I figured that sooner or later I could book a "free" trip if I saved long enough.

    Well, that time has finally come! I booked a 7 day trip later this year at the French Quarter for DH and I, found out from the cast member that I had a free dining pin code attached to my name, and still had an extra $150 in Giftcards left after booking the trip. How cool is that?

    My only expense is airfare. I found nonstop SW flights for $110 pp each way, snagged them, and am now going to spend an entire week at WDW for the $439 I spent for flights. If I get my act together, perhaps I can earn some more Giftcards to spend while I'm there.

    Thanks again, SR!

    Wonderful, enjoy your trip!

    I hope to do a "free" vacation to WDW next year with my SR $$. Last time we stayed at a value, really hoping to have enough for a mod next time. Would love to hear about FQ; that is the resort I am leaning towards right now.

    That is so cool! You can't beat an entire week at Disney for that price, and how cool that you had a free dining credit!

    I'm hoping to cover a lot of next years trip with SR gift cards. Things are tight for us, so having things like SR is what gives us the chance to go on vacation.

    Sounds like fun! I love being able to shave even the smallest amount of cost by using gift cards earned on SR, but a whole trip can't be beat!
