That way, only TA members will get them, as they are a lot more likely to leave that valuable feedback devs want (need). Giving them out in huge bunches is pointless and inevitably seen as a mistake.

These codes can be easily obtained at: http://www.expedia.com/medialounge just scroll to the bottom and you should see what you are looking for.

Ya live and learn, man.
Giving out codes here is not pointless as you claim. If the app is good, people(or "lurkers" in this case) may tell their friends about it which will in turn boost sales(it's all about the money!). Also, "lurkers" are also capable of providing beneficial feedback to the devs. Besides as the policy goes: First-come, first-served. And you double posted.

(Oops, saw that!)
Of course giving codes out here is not pointless! And some Lurkers may well tell their friends about it. That's a given. My point is that if a dev wants to increase his/her chance of getting MORE attention and people creating buzz, spreading the news in the small window of time they have, that helps promote the app and it makes sense to want to sell the most you can of your creation. It's a pretty big community here, and that's what we do. PM makes sure only members get the codes. They will thank you and give you the valuable feedback you need which is very helpful. Sometimes finding out how to make your app even better in the future! How many times have we seen a dev dump 50 codes at once and not get a single word in response? Kind of a waste really. Well, a dev could try it this way, and maybe try it the other way and see if it works better for them, man. Most of us here want to see indie devs succeed, and we like to help when we can. Sometimes a little advice works well.
