I sent my passport, printouts and info to apply for my Thai tourist visa last week, i received my passport approval with my $40 money order returned with a paper that states:

 

 

By the Order of the Ministry of Interior dated 30 November B.E. 2559 (2016), starting from 1 December 2016 until 28 February 2017, Thailand will launch a temporary Tourist Visa fee exemption scheme and a temporary Visa on Arrival (VoA) fee reduction scheme. Details are as follows:

 
1. All applicants applying for Tourist Visa (single entry) to Thailand during the aforementioned period will be exempted from the visa fee.
 
2. During the aforementioned period, Visa on Arrival (VoA) fee will be decreased from THB 2,000 to THB 1,000 for applicants of the nationalities which are entitled to apply for the VoA at the designated immigration checkpoints.

I thought I only needed a visa if I was going to be there more than 30 days.

Oh my bad, yes you're right, if less than 30 days then visa on arrival is fine. So this is good for people like me, but irrelevant for you, luckily :)
