How did you get this offer? The only one I can find is a $40 credit after you use your card. I would love to get 200 bonus points!

It came by snail mail! Yeah that's the only reason I went for it. I couldn't believe it was so good. So I will get rid of one of my other cards and use this one if when I read all the info it is comparable.

I am in the same situation. I had 3 fraudulent charges on my statement this month that they are taking care of right now, but I got my card in 2 days. They overnighted it via UPS. I was shocked, but thought maybe because they see I have purchases like everyday on my card and payments all the time. Whenever I charge something I come right home and do a web transfer from my bank so I don't carry a balance but earn my points too. I wish my threshold wasn't $1000.

DId you figure you bonus out? It's only earned on amounts in your categories (if you have them) over the threshold each month. Can't answer your question unless you have figured it out based on your offer and purchases. Yes, of course it can be correct, no it might not be.

I just got the same thing in the mail too! Had no idea that this card (and the dollar earning promotion) even existed. I am kicking myself that I could have been racking up bonus dollars all this time.... I am excited to get my stuff in the mail and start learning how this all works? I have read some of you mention a cap on how many funds you can earn... what is the limit? How do the limits work?

I will try to answer off the top of my head. I know the yearly rewards cap is like 750 dollars, so basically you would have to charge 75,000. I am not sure if there is an exception when you are recieving bonus reward offers to the yearly cap. As to your other question about expiration, this one boggled me too when I signed up. It is not the expiration date on your credit card but the expiration date on the rewards card that you will order to transfer rewards dollars to. When you call to get the rewards card (looks like a cc) it will expire say 12/10 and then any rewards you transfer to the card will expire on that date. So if you aren't going to use them keep them in "your account." I believe any rewards that I am getting right now expire in 2014 or 2015 w/out transfering them to card so they do expire but far into the future. Hope that helps.

Every month you will see a new rewards amount say you charged 300 bucks so 3 disney dollars and each month on your statement it will print when the disney dollars expire like I said not until 2014 or something like that.

it says 1 reward left, with 38 that transferred over already. That 38 was the regular rewards from the trip, but we have not received the 5xs rewards yet.

I was enrolled in the Oct to Dec 5x bonus, I didn't get any bonus points until my Jan 10th statement.

Got my January statement and I racked up 42 bonus points in December. I ended up buying a ton of gift cards at Stop and Shop during the last week in December and used them in January for food and gas plus all my holiday grocery shopping and holiday travel (gas) helped. So thanks to this promotion, I added an additional 78 Disney dollars. Not bad...Any word on Jan-March? I am buying ariline tickets this month which would be nice to apply toward the bonus...
