I got the offer for Apr-June and for July-Sept this year. Both of my offers were 5X rewards in groceries, dining, gas, & airlines with a minimum of $250. I got the offer at least once last year as well, but with a higher minimum (I think $750 or $1000) & I never earned any bonuses. The highest bonus I've earned was $13, but most months it's only been around $5. I'll take it though!

Just an FYI
I viewed my statement online last night and it showed $25 bonus rewards. I had purchased a plane ticket, so I am sure that is what put me over my $1000 minimum.

I haven't gotten any of the 3X or 5X rewards points (and I'm a Day 1 cardholder, too!), but earlier this summer I got a postcard that said if I pay my telecommunications bill as a recurring payment on my credit card for 2 months between July and SEptember, I'd get 25 bonus points. I quickly changed my phone and cell bills and got the 25 bonus points. perhaps that is what you have as well.

with the 5x rewards, typically it takes 6 - 8 weeks after the end of the program to get those bonus points...

It's actually 6-8 weeks following the date that the charges are posted to your account. So anyone who got the July-Aug-Sept offer might be seeing some of those 5x rewards in their statements right now if they reached their monthly threshold in early- to mid-July and they have a late-August or early-Sept closing date.

We've already seen some bonus rewards on our recent online statement.

I haven't been paying close attention, but it seems we've been getting our bonus rewards applied every month. This was the first offer of it's kind for us and I don't think I will use the card for awhile and see if that helps renew the offer for us.

Besides CC make my DH a nervous wreck even if I pay them in full each month. I'm sure he would like to breath easy for a few months heading into the Christmas season and then if they offer the 5x's offer (or something like it again) then I will drive him crazy again.

He'll understand when we are spending free money in 2011!!

We're doing this also. Ours was Apr - Sept over $250 (first one we ever got)

June bill = 30 bonus
July bill = 53 bonus
Aug bill = 56 bonus
Sept bill = 31 bonus

There was nothing on the May statement concerning the bonus rewards, so I would think that it will show up all the way through Nov.

I'm super excited because I'm hoping after Aug and Sept show up we might have almost enough to cover our family of 6 on the Dining Plan for a week!

of course by the time we're planning on going back it probably won't be enought

Disney Visa 5x offer

Does anyone remember if the 5x rewards included just airlines or did it include all travel, i.e. Disney travel eligible for the 0% interest offer?

TIA

The offers can be different from cardholder to another. Mine was for airline tickets but not for travel in general.

Disney packages are eligible for the 6 months at 0% interest. Room-only or ticket purchases are not. In addition, if you book thru a 3rd party like Expedia or Southwest Vacations, your vacation is not eligible.

I got my bonus points for this already. Just in time because we leave in 5 days!! Now I have to remember where I can get the card at DTD!

Bumping for everyone who signed up for the July-Aug.-Sept. 5x Rewards

Today is Sept 24!!! You have 6 days left to the month!! If you have any purchases to make in your 5x categories, get them done soon. This will be your last chance to grab those bonus points! Who knows when it will be offered again!

If I didn't sign up where would I call to find out if I'm eligible? And will they count what I spent on Disney Visa before we signed up?

Last month we put our airline tickets on Disney Visa.

you can't sign up for the offers. You have to recieve them either through snail mail, or e-mail.

DD has a card she has not used for months.

Yesterday she got an offer for 5X on everything she charges between now and Dec. up to $200 in bonus rewards.

Looks like I'll try to charge $4000 on her card between now and Christmas in order to collect.
