Interesting. As already pointed out, the discount is not significant.
For my part, if I wanted this product, I would prefer it bundled with
Xandros; and I already have a discount for that with my PC Authority
cover CD.

I also have Lindows, Morphix and Lycoris from PC Authority; a rich
source for distribution junkies.

Announce the meeting in the usual manner. By established practice,
anyone who attends is a 'member'. Announce the code during the meeting.
Or, take orders (cash?) during the meeting, return the code to
interested parties/payers.
