DVC Online Tour---$40 gift card?

I got something in the mail saying that if I take an online tour of Disney vacation club, I receive a 40 dollar gift card. Has anyone ever done this? I would love that extra gift card to take on my upcoming cruise---however, I really have no interest in (and can not afford) the Disney vacation club. Will this be a one time thing or will they continue to hound me once I take this online tour?
Thanks!!!

I've done it and gotten a $40 Disney gift card. Saving it for our next vacation there! I got mine a while back (say 4-6 months ago) and the g.c. arrived shortly after. If it's actually FROM Disney (not some other generic company) I would tend to believe it's legit.

Someone else posted earlier this week that they had done this and received the giftcard.

We did this in October for a $25 gift card, and just did it again for the $40 gift card. We got offers in the mail for both. We called and the phone tour only took 10 minutes, then they sent some information on resorts and pricing. Less than a week later we got the gift card from FedEx, someone had to sign for it or they could deliver it to a local Fed Ex store for us to pick it up there. This time they already had our info in the system so they actually skipped the tour and just sent the gift card. We told the reps we have no interest in buying into DVC and are interested in just the gift card and they are happy to send it out. The reps do not pressure you at all, we did get a follow up call from the rep making sure we got the materials and the gift card, but haven't heard from her since.

I got the postcard in the mail and did this yesterday morning. It is an offer for Disney Visa cardholders and I was asked to provide a few digits of the card to prove that I had one.

The process was really easy. I called and talked to a representitive for maybe 10-15 mins and she sent me a link to the online tour materials. They are also going to be sending the promotional video in the mail.

The person I talked to on the phone was very nice and not at all pushy. There was no "hard sell" at all.

The number on the postcard to call is 1-888-838-1406. I don't see a code or anything. Not sure if you can just call or not.
