Does anyone know how to redeem these on the cruise line? i see from the visa card info that the rewards are valid on cruises but how does this work? Any info is appreciated.
So, if I understand correctly. I use my card for everything. Get a reward card, pay off the cruise, and get more points to use for OBC?That's what I'm doing. Unfortunately, between final payment and sailing I'll have only accrued ~120 points/$$$. But those will marry well with the OBC I got from Disney & my TA.
Can you tell me when the Rewards Card expires? I was told it has an expiration date on the front, so I should not request the card too soon before the cruise when I plan to use it.I just got a new one and the expiration date was at least a year from now. (sorry, I'm too lazy to get up and go see right now ) It took about a week for delivery, but be sure to allow plenty enough time before you need to make final payment. Transferring reward dollars onto the card takes a little time, too, but I think it's only a day or two.
Then, the points I accrue between final payment and cruising I'll transfer back to the rewards card and use toward our onboard expenses.Have you actually used the points onboard?? I was told they don't accept the points onboard. We just used the points at the parks instead, so it was no big deal. Just curious for the future.
yes I have used the points on board. I have just used a bunch of points for my upcoming cruise and am saving more for the OB spending.My card expires in March - so probably expiration depends on when you get. When we went to Disney two years ago- I redeemed my points into a gift card that was accepted at all Disney locations. Saving points now for a cruise - half way there!
My current card expires in Dec 09. Got it a month or so ago. My last card also expired in a December so I think the cards all expire in Dec regardless of when they are ordered. When you call to get one you can ask when it iwill expire.
