Disney Visa holder received $40 gift card offer for DVC online tour

I have had the Disney Rewards Visa since early 2003, and I've only received a promo/bonus offer once. Finally got a second one! Yesterday they sent me a mailer offering a $40 Disney gift card if I did the DVC guided online tour. I had to call and talk to somebody for about 15 minutes, but I was told I'd get my gift card within 30 days. It was just a basic time share sales call but no pressure. I did a search but didnt' see this posted, but I'm sure that I'm not the ony person who has received this offer.

You're welcome. I was going to throw it away at first because I thought it was one of those 'apply for credit card and get a $40 gift card promo' and since I have two Disney visa accounts - didn't want to open another one. But it was a quick $40 for about 15 minutes of my time. I am thinking of getting my husband to call since he has his own Disney visa account, but honestly I don't think he can handle the 15 minute sales call. He doesnt' do well with that kind of stuff. But it would be another $40 gift card if I just could get him to do it.

Hmm, we are actually considering DVC and I have the Visa. I wonder if I can ask for this offer somehow? Did your mailer come with a phone number?

We got this in the mail today!
I was excited to do an online tour, but wound up talking to someone on the phone.

Can't wait to put this in my giant stack of gift cards

We got this offer in the mail too. My husband doesn't want to call and I didn't want to call for him on his offer but it says in the fine print "Only 1 gift card per household". So... I guess there is no chance of my husband and myself each getting one. Hey, $40. toward our next trip to Disney is better than nothin'!

Thanks for posting this. I may have thrown out the post card if I had not seen this post and been watching for the offer.

I'll have to look at the card tonight but it had a personal ID number to give when you call.

The postcard with the offer says the gift card will be mailed out 30 days from when I make the call. Wondering if this was your experience? We're 50 days out so I need to get on this so it comes in time. Would hate for it to be waiting for us after we get back!

It took 12 days for my card to arrive. When I called I was told it was taking between two to three weeks for the gift card to be sent. The call only took 10minutes and I was not pressured in any way. I was sent a very nice DVC packet to read. It also had a DVC coloring book for my daughter. It was worth my 10 minutes for the $40 gift card. Wish I could afford to join DVC.

One more question before I call...the postcard says it's an "on line tour." Does this mean I'll need to be at a computer when I call?

I got the offer and called - they really didn't even talk to me , just took down basic info, transferred me to someone else who said it would be mailed to me. Got the packet a few days later and the fedex with the giftcard arrived yesterday (maybe week - 10 days)

No pressure. Lots of info.
