I just checked my online statement and didn't see the offer. Did you have to click on something first?

I think you only have access to the $200.00 if the invite is mailed to you.
When we got the 200 initially I threw it out cause I read the fine print that said for new members, NOT the case per chase visa.... you can STILL apply of you are credit worthy enough....

THEN ....Same thing here...... we get another, 150 this time, EXCEPT, it was his (ds a TEEN) initial, I first applied under my husbands name, he was turned down (they said he had recent credit, long story short, he got a SW visa, also chase just weeks earlier (free R/T tik ) but I was still concerned so ran a credit check, he is over 800 and they turned him down Thats a joke based on our "financial pix"
Anyhow, I applied using SAME invitation code, just put my first name and ......... then got approved and free $150...
Meanwhile we already BOTH have Disney Visas and now we have THREE! No issues here, I Never pay interest so its a no brainer for us.......He uses his, I use mine and third one I am using for business stuff....(it is not under my business and is not a business card)

It's a new application offer although apparently some people who already have the card have gotten it.

Ours was a new account and this was our first monthly bill after the initial first purchase. My 200 rewards were there. That was actually under my husband's name. I received a $150 offer this week and for the heck of it, went on line, entered the invitation code and was approved. Maybe I'll get $150 on top of his $200. Would help out on our trip later this summer.

You should do one of the free credit reports for your daughter. If she is getting offers like this, there is a chance her identity has been stolen. This is one of the best crimes because parents don't think to check a credit report for a minor. Someone can get a SSN for a minor and have at least 18 years to use it before it's noticed. Heard a news report on this. go to annualcreditreport.com and you can get a free credit report. Her financial livelihood could be ruined before she even gets started.

Yes! My card came yesterday and I made my first purchase last night. Had to purchase anti-virus for my computer cause it got a virus.

I had made res. for March, then cancelled because of a conflict. Shortly after that I recieved the offer. So maybe the cancellation triggered the offer.
How long after you applied did you get the card in the mail? I got the offer in the mail and DH applied a few days ago. I wanted to put the final payment for my vacation on his card so we could get the $200 credited to his card. I'd like to do it this way because I'm not sure how long it will take Disney to mail out a gift card after first the first purchase and we leave for vacation on June 15th. Final payment is due tomorrow so I don't think it's going to work out unless they have super speedy delivery!! BTW I did not do anything special and had no cancellations so I'm not sure why we got the offer But I'm glad we did

I'm SO glad you asked this -we're in the same situation. I got "my" Disney Visa (with dh as my co) a few years ago, the we got the $200 offer at my parents house (our last name) so we applied with dh as the main and me as the co - got approved and thus have 2 different cards. Used his once and got the 200 disney dollars

Just got another $200 offer sent to our house in our family name - I didn't know if I should bother to apply for it but hey it's $200 in our pocket if it comes through. Thanks to you all I'm going to send it in - fingers crossed they don't figure out we already have 2 cards!

Since it goes as rewards - you can spend it for most anything Disney. You can use your reward card for food, tickets, hotel, merchandise - most anything at a Disney store. We use ours every trip for most of those items.

Thumbs up we did it--$200 coming our way!

We too received this promotion in the mail. I'm the primary on our "original" Disney Visa card and DH is now the primary on this card.

I think I would have just thrown away the offer if not for this thread.

Thank you, thank you!!

I have a Disney Visa that expires in November - any chances they'll send the offer to me to renew the card? Or does it have to be a completely new account?
