Exclamation Disney Rewards Visa Bonus Offer

If you have a Disney Visa Rewards Card, you should be on the lookout for a special rewards offer I received today by email. Basically, it gives you 5X reward dollars for all purchases during each of July, August and September over $250 in dining, gas, airlines and groceries (if I am reading it correctly). You have to register to get the promotion, but be careful, as the email got caught in my Outlook Junk Mail folder, so I almost didn't see it.

I got the 5x offer for groceries, but every grocery store I have gone to has shown up as the "other" category on my online statement. Does anyone know why this is and if I'll get 5x rewards???

Thanks!
Kristi

I think Chase is full of crap on this one.

I have made food-only purchases at Kroger, Tom Thumb, and Albertsons. All 3 show up as "other". Those are the only grocery stores I know of in my area.

Anyone seeing something show up as grocery?

The other odd thing is that these stores all show up as grocery on other credit cards...a little suspicious...

It would help so much if you just called them and asked them. I did. It's the easiest way to resolve something instead of assuming the worst. When I asked about my Kroger showing up as other, the customer service representative stated that it is a grocery store on her list so it qualifies.

Also, Marybrat, I have had a Chase card since day one and have never received an offer. When this came out last month and was mentioned on this board, I called Chase and asked if I was eligible. They said they would give me the offer. All I had to do is call and ask. They can only say either yes or no. If they say no, it's no different than what you are getting now.

By the way, the customer service rep stated that there are different offers for different people. Some have a $250 hurdle to get above, some have $500, and some have other categories. She did not know how each got their limit.

I did this promo 6 mos. ago. I was very strict and only made purchases specifically stated. Even called to make sure which gas statiions gave the "gas" credit (can't go to BJ's, super Walmarts, etc). Still, I only recieved about 35% credit of the total I think I should have gotten. Even then, I had to keep calling to get the credit. I'm not participating in this promo anymore.

Same offer

I got the same offer last month but I have to spend $750 and above to qualify. I questioned Publix as showing up as other and they said it counts as a grocery store. So I saved my bill and will question it again if I don't get the credit!

My amount was/is $500. I don't put groceries and such on my Visa card, but I did spend close to $2000 in airfare at just the right time, so got the extra points for that purchase.

I also got the offer with the $750 limit in order to qualify. I can't see spending over 750 in any one category in a month. It seems they look at your history and pick a number you usually don't reach. Doesn't make me happy.

this offer was brought up here a month or so ago. I did ot get the offer, but based on a suggestion to call and ask for it, I did and was told "no". Just last week, I got a follow up letter saying that I called and requested the offer but the offers go out to "selected" card members (guess I was not one) and only them. Oh well. I use my card a lot so maybe it went to lighter users?

I shop exclusively at Albertson's and I earned an extra $58 in bonus dollars for my purchases there. I have no idea why yours show up as 'other' but call them for sure.

I just called Chase to ask if I was eligible and was told that it rotates through different customers every quarter and that if I did not receive the offer this time I might be on the next rotation.

We have two disney visa accounts, and my DH always seems to get the offers! I'm the one that spends the most money, but he always gets the offers. Doesn't make sense to me! However, we received the same offer, but ours didn't go into effect until we had spent $1000! I didn't even bother calling to sign up for it. Shortly after that, Midwest dropped our flights and we had to spend A LOT of money on airfare for our cruise. I wish I had been thinking because airline tickets was one of our categories, and we would have earned a big chunk of reward dollars on our airline tickets alone. Live and learn! It does make me mad that they seem to want to offer rewards to those that don't use their cards as much. I charge everything on my card but always pay the balance off in full every month. I don't think they like that.
