I guess Flash Dale in not combinable with D discounts

Recommended Posts

Since I am checking prices for myself (diamond) and other family members (gold) it seems they get a $75 Flash Sale discount that I do not get. I can only assume it is not combinable.   So instead of the $226 cheaper price for me than what they have, it is now only $150 difference. Just doesn't seem right.

That's one of the common ways that Royal has found to diminish C&A perks.  Anytime they want, they can designate part of a price to be some sort of "special discount" that may not even lower the total price.  However, because it's "special", it's not combinable with C&A discounts. 

 

They can lower a price this way and have it not apply to a large chunk of C&A members on that cruise.

Yep.

 

I wish Royal would take 1/10th the time they spend figuring out ways to diminish benefits and come up with deceptive promos/sales, and put that towards making their website work reliably.

Is Flash Dale one of the performers on an Atlantis charter?   :classic_blink:

And does he wear Alter Lateral Flash?

Sometimes a TA can sweet talk their reps at RCI to allow both, but not as often as it used to be.

Yep, the Royal marketing is really annoying. In the last three or so promotions I've checked, if you read the small print the so-called ''ínstant ''savings'' have never been combinable with C & A discount.

You read my mind . I am truly taken aback how inventive the constant promotions (let's not call them sales) are; the advertised price may seem attractive but the end price seems to remain the same whatever the 'deal' !
