    Are there any added bonuses besides points?

    I did ask if APs qualified for the 6 month interest free deferment and was told "no". That would have been sweet. But 1% or even better yet 2% rewards are enough reason to use the Disney Visa for me.

    Well, you can get 2 points per dollar spent, which are redeemable at 100 points for one Disney Dollar. :) Better than nothing, but nothing to blog about.

    Yes but if you spend (like us) $399 x 2 plus 6.5% tax = $840.87 you will receive 1% back = $8.40 or 2% back = $16.80.

    We had enough last year in Disney Visa Rewards we were nearly able to buy 2 new APs. That's real money.

    Took a couple of years to amass that many points at 1% but have since upgraded to the Premier Visa 2%.

    If you have the premier Disney Visa (the one with the annual fee), you earn 2% on most purchases from Disney, including tickets. If you have the Disney Rewards Visa (no annual fee), purchases from Disney get you 1% in rewards.

    I have $1100 on my Disney rewards card available for use, so we are using that to pay for our annual passes for next year. Then we will still have money left over to use towards our December trip. We put tons of money on our disney card each year so we get a lot back from them.

    When we bought our first DVC points we paid with our Disney Chase card:thumbsup2 (Which we paid off completely in the first billing cycle). Not a huge deal, but might as well make the best of the bonuses. :earsboy:
