    I have had the Disney Rewards Visa since early 2003, and I've only received a promo/bonus offer once. Finally got a second one! Yesterday they sent me a mailer offering a $40 Disney gift card if I did the DVC guided online tour. I had to call and talk to somebody for about 15 minutes, but I was told I'd get my gift card within 30 days. It was just a basic time share sales call but no pressure. I did a search but didnt' see this posted, but I'm sure that I'm not the ony person who has received this offer.

    You're welcome. I was going to throw it away at first because I thought it was one of those 'apply for credit card and get a $40 gift card promo' and since I have two Disney visa accounts - didn't want to open another one. But it was a quick $40 for about 15 minutes of my time. I am thinking of getting my husband to call since he has his own Disney visa account, but honestly I don't think he can handle the 15 minute sales call. He doesnt' do well with that kind of stuff. But it would be another $40 gift card if I just could get him to do it.

    Hmm, we are actually considering DVC and I have the Visa. I wonder if I can ask for this offer somehow? Did your mailer come with a phone number?

    We got this in the mail today!
    I was excited to do an online tour, but wound up talking to someone on the phone.

    Can't wait to put this in my giant stack of gift cards :goodvibes

    We got this offer in the mail too. My husband doesn't want to call and I didn't want to call for him on his offer but it says in the fine print "Only 1 gift card per household". So... I guess there is no chance of my husband and myself each getting one. Hey, $40. toward our next trip to Disney is better than nothin'!:yay:

    Thanks for posting this. I may have thrown out the post card if I had not seen this post and been watching for the offer.

    This information is also on the Budget Board. I did not receive the card, but do have a Disney VISA. Hubby called and just said he was interested in the online tour for the $40 gift card. They asked the first 6 digits on the card. It lasted about 10 minutes and the card should be here in a few weeks. I love free money for our trip in May!:banana:

    We got this in the mail and my husband made the call in early December. Like others have said, he said it was 10-15 minutes and there was no pressure at all. He found everything to be pretty interesting. If only we had an extra $16k or so sitting around! :lmao:

    The giftcard came pretty quickly...much quicker than I expected. It came via FedEx, and my husband actually had to sign for it! He received a follow-up call from DVC (which he didn't pick up) and they sent us additional materials in the mail a few weeks later.

    Good luck! Yay for free money to spend at Disney! :banana:

    Hmmm...we have the Visa, but I hadn't noticed any mailers regarding this. I wonder if I tossed/shredded by accident? :confused3 Or, they figured out that we took the tour when we had some extra time on our last vacay, got a $100 gift card, and didn't have the extra cash to buy :rotfl:

    i received a letter in the mail stating i would get a $40 gift card since i had a disney chase visa if i called about dvc info. i called, talked about dvc and got info in the mail. that has been almost 3 months ago. NO gift card yet. i call about it every week and get the run around. really surprised disney handled things this way.

    I did this. There was def. no pressure, although we did end up buying. It has been over a month. We have purchased DVC, but we still have not received our gift card.

    I received this offer in the mail as well. I called and took the survey. They said they would send the visa card..they did .. I was away and could not get to fed ex to pick it up in time.. it went back and I have been trying for months to get it reissued. Some one told me he would take care of it.. still waiting....

    I did it in the Fall and got the card. Did not buy DVC, they still call occasionally.

    I called last night. The phone call lasted about 12 minutes. They did not pressure me at all. Asked how often I visited Disney and told me some general DVC information. He said I would receive a packet in the mail which would be coming in the next few days and the gift cards are taking 2-3 weeks and sent by Federal Express.

    Received the card & plan on calling. Did a search on here to see if anything came up & here I am! Then I noticed the date the thread started. Glad to see I'm not the only one who did a search & started the conversation back up. I plan on calling as we have a trip planned for this summer & who doesn't love free Disney money?!?

    I'll have to look at the card tonight but it had a personal ID number to give when you call.
