Even though Costco says 3 weeks to receive the card we got ours really fast. We had them within 3 days of returning from our trip. I think we got of the ship on Sunday and had our gift cards by Wednesday.

I spoke with a rep at Costco Travel recently and was told that you can transfer the cruise to Costco after booking it (and before PIF) and get the same cash card amount. Of course I found that out right after we had made the final payment on our upcoming cruise!

Regarding gift card payment application to Costco, or any TA.
I know some TA's have a minimum payment. I read here of an App or Website that allowed a consumer to consolidate all DCL cards to one , therefore bypassing said limit. And also easing the time on any website / phone with DCL or any TA.

I can't locate mentioned site.

DH and I are going on a cruise in a few weeks (we couldnít pass up the VGT deals), and we know for sure that we are taking our family on a cruise in August 2014. So based on my research, here are the steps that I think I should take:

1. Book the future cruise onboard.
2. List Costco as the Travel Agent.
3. Pay the deposit.
4. Contact Costco Travel after I get home to verify the reservation (and cash card amount).

Since Costco will be listed as the travel agent, the reservation is technically not a transferred reservation and I should qualify for the cash card, correct? Could someone who has done this before please verify if Iím doing this correctly?

Thanks so much for your help!
When completing the OBB and listing Costco Travel, do you need the name of a person to list as the TA or does Costco Travel and the mailing address from their website suffice?

This is awesome, as we sail in 7 weeks and are already looking forward to booking our 2014 cruise!

I think they did put a name on it. I am not sure though. I believe they used the same name on our previous reservation. Perhaps you could call up Costco and ask. Usually they are pretty friendly and will find someone who knows when you call.
