Default "Special Rate" emails from Disney

In the last couple of months I've received emails from Disney offering special rate codes SX6 and R4G but when I call they are exactly the same price as I got through the website, anyone else getting these emails? Looks like Disney is trying to trick people into thinking they are getting a deal when they aren't just so they will book a package.

Not tricks just advertising and the code is an advertising promo code. I've gotten those type f emails and they are just advertising.

Yup I got the SX6 code email twice and I am so glad I know better than to possibly fall for this kind of marketing scheme. If I have never been before and I saw that, I would think it was some kind of discount... so yes, I do think it is a way to get people to book when they see it.
Been there, Haven't done it all...GOING BACK!!!

Next trip "Home" - November 5-14th 2015 @ Wilderness Lodge!! 10 days at the most magical place on earth!

It is a discount, just one offered to the general public. There are those that do not read discussion boards and such and are unaware of available discounts. So it is a marketing tool but is not a scheme.
