If that were the case, we'd have "run out" sometime halfway through the first day we offered it.
That's correct - the offer is only good for people who do not have current DreamHost accounts. As such, it'd be literally impossible to buy 2 as by the time you finished purchasing the first you'd be a current customer. I suppose if you had two web browsers open and clicked both the purhase buttons at the exact same time... :>
We do have some automated checks in place to verify that people aren't taking advantage, though to some degree we rely on the good ethical nature of our customers (which is, for the most part, pretty reliable).
As for the plan itself, we no longer officially offer it but there were a lot of stragglers out there who found out about it late (it seems that it took on a cult like status among some), so we have left the promotion code open and still honor it.
