I got the same offer... what kills me is that you only get the 3X rewards for the $ spend OVER the $3000. Wow! I signed up, but doubt I'll even make an extra point -- unless some major stuff goes wrong causing us to use the credit card for a major purchase. I'd rather not get a couple extra Disney Dollars if I have to buy some major purchase, KWIM?

I got the 3x rewards offer as well, and I believe mine was for over $1000. Luckily, my husband drives a semi and is using our Disney card for fuel right now, so hopefully we can rack up some major points .

I got the same over $3000 limit and thought it was because I put so much on it for Christmas.

I got an email offer and accepted it (I thought it was for $1,500 but the email got deleted) but then got a post card offer for $3k, now I have no idea.

Did you guys receive your bonus points yet? It didn't show up on my January statement like they said it will. I called again and the rep said he sent a inquiry to the marketing dept and I will hear the results of the investigation in 12 days.

They should show up the month following you earning them. If your January statement includes ANY December activity, then you won't see them until your February statement.

My guess is that since you have already recieved a statement in January that it includes December activity.

When I was first offered the bonus dollars, that was how it worked (I got October's in November) but this time they didn't give it to me like that. I called and said they would give October-December to me in January because its prorated and easier to give it all at once in January. But that didn't happen either.

3x is better than nothing!


This is the first time I have received the promotion without having the amount of "extra" purchases having to be in a special category.. unfortunately, the purchases have to be over the $1,000 hurdle. I am pretty excited though, because I "saved up" a bunch of purchases this month and was able to rack up a ton of extra points. The extra points usually show up 2 months after... so for January, I would see them on my March statement.


I love the bonus points!!!!

So I also got the 3x bonus points on all eligable purchases BUT I can find nowhere what is considered eligable? I looked all over the mailer, online, tried to call. Im planning on putting some hotel and airline on there later this week and im hoping those will do the trick. Any ideas on whats eligable?

If it does not specify certain categories (grocery, gas, hotel, etc) then it should be for everything.

if its everything that would be great. We use this as our gas card and with gas prices being so high myabe this will make me a little less mad knowing i get something back.

Thanks!!!!
