it was posted on here some time ago that the visa booking OBC was a code and there could only be one code on a reservation. so the OBB OBC was actually a code and so you couldn't use both. the OBC TA's offer is not a code and therefore you can get the visa OBC perk and their offer or the OBB OBC and their offer but not all three. the KSF is a code and therefore can't be combined with the visa booking code. if you do a search i'm sure you'll find other threads asking that.

the one thing that was combinable was the $25 OBC for making an online reservation and the visa $50 OBC (or any other OBC offer) because the online was wasn't a code. but that $25 isn't offered any more.

not sure why the future cruise consultant said you could get the visa one and the OBB OBC unless something changed very, very recently. we asked last year cuz it can't hurt and they confirmed we could have one or the other (we still used the visa card for the deposit, gotta get the points )

Correct. As has been discussed before, the on board rebooking OBC & 10% offer off is booked using a booking code. You can only have one code (or "offer") per reservation, whether it be the on board booking, Kids Sail Free, FL resident rate, military rate, etc. Disney Visa uses another code, & u can't use two.

There USED to be a $25 credit given by DCL for booking online (not matter who booked it- yourself or your TA). That did not require a booking code, but instead, it was an offer from DCL, & it was combinable with the Disney Visa $50 OBC.

You can combine OBC given by TAs with anything, as again, no code is used - its simply money given to clients from their commission.

The only way you can get the $50 Disney Visa OBC is by booking a rack rate stateroom & by using it to pay for your deposit & balance. I cannot speak about the *GT rates, as I do not have experience with them & do not want to answer incorrectly or assume.

We just recently upgraded to Premier....do they have the 5% offer very often? I would love to pay off balance at 5% instead of 2%.

I think it was a promotional offer for the 1st month I had it then I got 2% sorry my message was wrong. Even at 2% we still earned quite a bit for using for gas and groceries.

Just to add to this. I was booked on one of the Pixar cruises (Wonder out of LA) on a VGT rate and I did receive the $50 OBC for using my Disney Visa. So that is one case where a discounted rate and the Disney Visa OBC can both be used.

I have a reservation booked at a discounted group rate (PCC 4.0) and was told by my DU TA that even that was not combinable with the Disney Visa $50 OBC.

Yes.

I was sailing under OGT and got the $50 credit there. I booked in board a future dummy cruise and was told the $50 OBC will still apply on top of the OBC for booking on bord.

Of course, we'll see in two years...

I see.. In any case, at least this past August, *GT rates did give us the $50 OBC.

Yeah, they have given you incorrect info. I use my Disney Visa exclusively. I've booked every cruise with it. That's 6 sailed & 5 currently booked. Not counting the 1st 2 cruises or the 2 we got Florida Resident rates for, they have all been on board bookings with the deposit & balance paid for with the Disney Visa. No $50 Disney Visa OBC. I didn't expect it tho because I knew it wasn't combinable with any other offers.

The DU OBC & Castaway Club OBC gave me $475 total OBC on the last cruise & the one coming up in 48 days, so you won't hear any complaints from me! $475 is a lot of loot
