Gold/Platinum Special Merchandise Offering ?

Our next cruise will be our first one as Gold CC members. What is this "Special Merchandise Offering"? It says, "Take advantage of special onboard shopping opportunities. What exactly is that?

You get a discount based on your CC level.

Well, the letter we got on our last cruise says, "Receive a 10% discount of select merchandise onboard the ship. Certain restrictions apply."

At the bottom the restrictions are pretty extensive:

alcohol, all DVD's cameras, collectible originals, celebrity memorabilia, framed Disney dollars; framed Disney gift cards, framed ticket media, artist sketch program; auctioned art; artisan watches; handmade (products physically touched by an artist/vendor); stained glass, paper art and sculptures; mosaics; ceramics; artist signed vinylmation; electronics; periodicals; postage stamps; special orders; tobacco. May not be combined with any other discount, offer or promotion. For personal use only and may not be used to purchase merchandise with the intent to resell. Not valid on previous purchase. Valid Gold or Platinum Castaway Key to World card must be presented at time of purchase.

The discount does not apply to any merchandise purchased on Castaway Cay. It only applies to merchandise purchased on the ship.

If you purchase on the ship the answer is yes. I purchased a VB bag and last year purchased a D&B bag and got the discount.

The designer handbags used to be excluded. I am glad they changed that as my DW loves her some DCL Dooneys.

Awesome, thank you. Now I just have to hope the one I want is in stock.

Anybody know if the discount can be applied to Chamilia Beads? Reading the description, I am sure it won't apply to David Doss prints.

Yes, I had the 10% discount applied to a Chamilia necklace and beads in November on the Dream, and also on the Fantasy last March.
