FWIW, you don't need it. I just use faxzero to send in my brokerage statement, with the cruise details and my info on the cover sheet.

You also must cross out your identification number from your stock broker.

Here is the easiest way:

 

email GuestAdmin@Carnival.com

 

Attach a copy of your recent statement, and enjoy your OBC!

I did a print to PDF of the single page that shows the stock and pasted asterisks over the id# then faxed it with my booking info. We use ringcentral at work so I didn't have to really print anything.

Did this work because I was told it HAD to be a fax?

I've used the email to Guest Admin for a couple years, and as recently as a couple months ago. My email was acknowledged same day, and the OBC posted to my sailing within 2-3 days.

I just faxed mine in today. With Princess I usually get an email right away acknowledging receipt of the fax, but I haven't received anything yet from Carnival. I can't remember how it worked out last year on my Carnival cruise, but I know the credit was applied really quickly. Where do I look in my online Carnival account to see if the credit has been applied?

I always email (like in post #6), and I usually have it approved within 48 hours.  I've been doing it this way for the past several years.

Go to your check-in documents. Press the "print" option (you dont need to actually print them) and you'll be able to see the credit.

Yes I have a cruise in November, emailed my stockbroker statement on 10/14 and had a response showing the shareholder OBC was credited today 10/16.

There is no reason to bother with a fax.

Proof of email for the doubting thomas types:

For my upcoming Carnival Cruise, I sent it by fax and Carnival confirmed it through email. It seems Carnival’s preferred method of email but the other brands in the family prefer fax.

Thanks for the info and it did work however something that was in my email that doesn't seem to be included in yours was this line.

 

Please be advised that Shareholder Statement must not be email due to security reasons, for future please fax or mail statement.

And this is funny because they use a fax service that sends them an email with the fax image as an attachment.

I just gave mine to the snails last Monday.  If it goes as usual, I'll get a confirmation email the end of next week.

I emailed mine on the evening of 11/4 and it was posted the morning of 11/7. I just went back to check and my email confirmation dies not include the sentence about faxing. I did black out all account info.

How many months in advance can I request the Shareholder OBC ?  I have three cruises booked in 2020 -- May, June, and September.

Can I request the OBC for each of the three cruises in the same request ?

I just looked at my confirmation email from guest services for my request sent in on 9/14 for Journey's cruise in Feb.  Yeah, $250 OBC.  My confirmation says nothing about faxing it in the future.

 

I know the Carnival stockholders info on their stock page no longer lists email #, but it's never stopped me from scanning my broker statement with the the pertinent info showing and sending via. email.
