OK, just looked at my statetement and I was credited $36 in the 5X rewards - Additional 4% line of my statement.

So, if if I am understanding this correctly, I spent $1900 in dining, groceries and gas last month? $1000 to reach the plateau then 900X.04 = 36? Am I calculating this correctly?

Yes. The bonus is earned on the actual month not your stmt month. Regular disney dollars are earned as your stmt cycles.

So you made your purchases in Nov? So they show up on your Dec Statement? The 5xs??? How come they are telling me this 5xs can not be put on my account until the promontion ends, which is Dec 31st...and than from there it can take 6-8 weeks to hit my statement, which would be my MARCH statement, for something I purchased in Dec ( our trip and airfare)

Ohh I am just so bummed about this...,sorry to sound like a debbie downer, but boy, if I knew it was going to work like this, I would have went with my CC that gives me instant miles and a lower % rate....

By the way I also spoke to the "manager" and they said there was nothing they could do...now what am I going to do with all those Disney rewards AFTER we are done with our trip? I do not see us going to Disney again by Dec of 2010...

WHo knows what they are actually doing. I was told (as in the past each month would post in the subsequent month due to the overlap of actual vs. stmt month. This offer my Oct bonus and Nov bonus amounts both posted on my Dec stmt that just cut. In past offers the oct bonus portion posted on the NOv stmt. I hopefully will have the Dec on my Jan stmt since we are going the beginning of Feb. I don't know why nearly every customer service rep tells a different timeframe and the card actually is posting the bonus portion differently for some! Who knows why 2 months bonus on one stmt. I did calculate my bonus and my amout is exactly correct.

I was told the same thing about it taking awhile for the points to actually be awarded!

well I guess all I can do is wait until my Jan 25th statement closes and see what shows up for disney rewards. It takes all of 3 mins to put the rewards on your already exisiting card, so I guess that is all I can hope for, even SOME of the bouns rewards with the 5xs would be nice. However I will be closing my card after this trip...not happy at all with them over this.

I agree. I have no idea what they are doing. And I really can't believe I spent $1800 in one month on food and gas. I know I did not buy and airline ticket. When I added up October, it came to about $700 for the month. I have not had time to go through my November statement yet but I am pretty sure I did not spend an unusual amount in those categories. Are we sure we are calcuating this correctly? I get the feeling that what they are telling us and what is actually happening are not in sync. I am not complaining, I'll take my 36 dis dollars but something is a bit fishy...

Don't forget the bonus is on ACTUAL month not stmt month. Are you saying you didn't spend the 800 over your threshold to get the 36? My Oct and Nov bonus portion were posted on my Dec 26 stmt just to let you know. It was combined - first time this ever happened. Also, are you positive that you had the categories? mine had no categories this offer. I did get $111 bonus for the 2 months (my Max. bonus amount was $200) This month I should earn the rest (just put my car ins. on the card) We go the beginning of Feb so I hope the Dec amt is there at the end of Jan.


Also, anyone get the offer for Jan-Mar? I called and was told no for me!

Actual month / Statement month what's the difference? A month is a month and $1800 is alot for one month, no? I'll look at my statement over the weekend and see how it adds up. As for the categories, again, I am only going by what I was told when I signed up -- 4 categories - Dining, Groceries, Gas and Airline Tickets over the $1000 threshold and the 4% is applied to the portion over the threshold which is reset each month. So in my case, to get $36, I had to spend $1800 in Dining, Groceries and Gas in a month. I know I did not buy airline tix...

I added up October and I spent about $700 in those cats. I did not think I'd get there in November. Now, December, I thought I had chance since we did buy alot of food and beverage for parties we hosted on Xmas and Xmas eve and for the upcoming New Years eve.

I received both my Oct and Nov bonus in Dec. It was combined and correct. The difference is that your bonus is on the 1st to monthend and I didn't know when you spent the money. Maybe your bonus is like mine for 2 months you have to figure what you spent Oct 1-nov 30 (take the 1000 off for each month) and then calculate on the actual month. Just a thought. I'm just trying to help you figure your bonus that's all and it is caluclated differently than the regular dollars. I earned 84 for the actual month of Oct and 27 for the actual month of Nov and all 111 were on my Dec 26 stmt. Look at all your charges and figure it that way.

My dec stmt already cut but I charged a big charge yesterday and that will be in the bonus for Dec even though it's already done. The promo runs through Dec 31 not my stmt date.

Wow that is great. Was his from purchases thatyou made in Oct or Nov?

The other day, the lady transferred 38 bouns dollars, from I think my Dec statement, which ends on the 25th....so on my Jan statement, will I not get anything??

We did out trip in Dec, so I do not understand why I can not get my bouns dollars in Jan and why they are saying April... It seems like others are getting them even before the promo ends...

I might have to call again and find out what my Jan statement shows for points, not that my Dec statement has closed.

I don't know where Apr came from The bonus (usually posted by month) is to be paid by 6-8 weeks from the month earned. I got Oct and Nov bonus on my Dec 26 stmt. The latest you should get the bonus is by your Feb stmt. I think as long as the stmt is near the end of the month Jan is more like it. I was told (when I didn't get Oct on Nov stmt) that it would be after the total promo ended (that would make sense if you didn't sign up right away and waited til now) but I signed up Oct 1. You most likely will have your bonus portion well before April. I hope I get my Dec bonus in Jan as we are going the beginning of Feb. I just ordered my giftcard with the minimum amount of $10 (to make sure I receive it) and then I'll transfer the rest just as we go!! (never take chances anything can happen!!) I only transfer the Disney Dollars when I will use them since they will expire sooner if on a card (Dec 31, 2010 is what I was told)

REALLY??? My card has an expiration date of 12/2010....I have not even activiated the card yet. Does this mean I loose all my rewards come tomorrow cause they are transferred on the card?

Oh good god, not sure how worth all of this was...
