    Default Military Discount???

    I saw a post on Facebook that mentioned a military discount. Does it apply to retired military? Can it be added to any other current booking specials?

    Thanks,

    I hope you get an answer soon!!! I've always wondered if you get the discount if you were honorably discharged. My son served in Iraq and is now out.

    thank you for your service!

    Retired and active duty military receive a military discount. I used it for my reservations in 2011 and my booked reservations for 2012 and 2013.

    Here's a link to an earlier message.

    And here's a little more from Randymon:

    Thank you for the info. I sent my travel agent this info and asked her to check into this for us. We have already booked but have not paid it all in full so hoping maybe we are still able to get the discount.

    Anyone from the resort want to make an official statement on this? It sounds as if there is no problem with getting the discount for routine specials, but what about for the early booking specials like is goin on right now for 2013? Specifically, can you add the military 10% discount to the G13a rate and resort credits?

    I tried to get the discount booking through AMEX travel, wanted to use points to help pay, but Couples would not honor it. Even though they say it is OK to book through a travel agent if booked directly with the resourt?

    Randymon,

    I contacted Couples via e-mail about this and was told we were not eligible for the military discount because we booked through a TA and not directly through Couples. Is that not correct? We're 2 weeks from arrival at CTI/CSS. Would appreciate clarification.

    Thanks,

    Bart & Bug
