If I could just come up with a way to pay our HELOC(home equity line of credit) with the Disney Visa or my SW card I would have it made!!!

2 years we have flown round trip free with SW rewards points!

Is there an offer to upgrade out now that includes a $200 bonus? I have been a regular DV cardholder forever but would upgrade now if I got 200 points.

I used to have the Disney Card and paid bills with it and paid it off immediately just to get the rewards for things I was paying anyway, but I found the system they have set up with having to order a reward card and then the money expiring very "user unfriendly". It seemed I often went around and around on the website and had to call to get card and rewards transferred.

IT made me wonder if they do this to discourage use of points/rewards and due to the expirations, I bet lots of them go unused.

I loved using them in the parks, but felt it just took too much time and effort.
I just changed for a cash back and use my cash.

Huh? I've found the website to be very user-friendly when it comes to ordering a rewards card or to transfer points. The points don't expire for 5 years unless you put them on a rewards card and then they expire when the card expires.
