This link is where you get the discount. WordPress says this about DreamHost, & DreamHost has this to say about WordPress.

Automattic (the company behind WordPress) and DreamHost have cut a deal. Automattic obviously gets a cut of the amount you pay DreamHost. However, what DreamHost gives you is not on offer via their homepage or any other promo code I am aware of. This is a complete win-win-win situation for Automattic, DreamHost and the user who signs up.

I totally understand that this is still shared hosting and 1TB is an overkill for all practical purposes. However, I believe for a fact that DreamHost does let you use what they promise if you actually try to use it.

And before I could actually post this, I did a bit of research and found the following within my acocunt under rewards:

Although you can always create as many custom promo codes as you’d like, we are now offering special “DreamHost Invitations” to a select few customers.

DreamHost Invitations:

* Are each good only one time!
* Up our plan features to 2TB disk and 20TB bandwidth!
* Give $150 off a 5-year signup or $200 off a 10-year signup!
* Still give you a full $97 for each referral!
* Are way better than regular promo codes.. but are in very limited supply!

Please note: if anbody who used one of your DreamHost Invitations is ever disabled for fraud/spamming/illegal activities, you will immediately loseWeight Exercise all current and future invitations… so please be discriminating with these things!

Aw shucks! You don’t currently have any unused invites.. we told you they were special!

We’ll notify you when you’re given some.
(To not be notified, please just modify your contact info to not receive “DreamHost Promotions”)

So, its either via WordPress or via this special code that seems to be floating around. Else you are opting for 500GB which isn’t any less. I will leave you with this blog post by DreamHost which explains thier business model of overselling in a very slapstick way.
