Bummer... We have 3 cabins in our group and 1 of the cabins didn't get it because they were on vacation last week so I thought I could wait to tell them about it when they got back

I have 2 cabins booked and the same master card for both sign and sail accounts. Do you think I will $50 OBC for both cabins? When will those OBC show up? When we embark? I hope I don't lose those OBC. Every little bit helps.

~~~Just read the terms and conditions and it seems they pulled it early~~~

I haven't heard of anyone "hearing" if they got it approved. I put mine in the first day I heard about it, and have not received any notification. I have read on another thread that it will be applied upon embarkation. I hope it's true!

I doubt it will show up until you either do your Fun Pass and enter the card for your Sail & Sign account, or until your card is "activiated on the ship. ??

Does anyone have a link to the original offer.

Just wanted to check the fine print for one of those "we can end early" clauses. If not will call and plead my case.

Here's the link. It says "subject to change with no prior notice". I missed out, too! If you get them to give it to you please let me know!

Thanks!!

I did fill out the form... We will see what happens.

I also applied for a Carnival MC to use on it. All my current cards are VISA. I will advise soonest. There are 3 other cabins linked on our same sailing and they have missed it, due to the fact that it said you have until 11/30 to do it. Reading back... I may still get it as it says the FORM must be submitted by 11/30/11????


This promotion has ended. Thank you for visiting!

Anyone have any clue what would happen if you change your method of payment (to cash or non-master card) mid-way through the cruise after they have applied the credit?

Here's how I see it - we put the form in and hope we get it applied to our OBC. If we don't, then we don't - it's not like it's "costing" us anything nor will it keep us from doing something - we consider it "bonus" for the vacation and will be happy to use it on our account, but if for some reason it doesn't show up on our OBC account, then so be it. For us, it would pay for soda stickers for the kids

What could they do?
The promo was a MasterCard promo, not Carnival cruise line promo. Im sure Carnival will not take it back.

That's what I was thinking too. I don't see Carnival caring one bit if that were to theoretically happen.

Don't be too bummed. I am not even sure if any of us will actually get it.

So far I submitted the registration and used my Mastercard to set up the onboard expense acct. And now what? I should see $50 in my acct automatically? If it doesn't show, what can I do? Nothing I suppose.

I also don't see how this promo works for Mastercard. They just give out $50 to people who may or may not have a ton of on board expenses? Weird.

Anyway, it was very kind of the CC'er who posted it. But I am not counting on it.

The OBC will not appear on your Funpass - you'll see it once you board - so the offer said
