Earlier today I posted a link to the updated Shareholder Benefit Request Form.

They'll accept forms with expired dates but the version I posted is the current one.

FYI..They're accepting request for more than 90 days. I recently submitted a request for my January 2018 & March 2019 & already have the stock credit for both cruises, $250 each. I learned about this from another post on CC.

Thanks to CC members for this information. One of the many reasons for joining CC.

I decided to test this out and it's true!! Used to have to wait until final payment to apply for the shareholder OBC, but last week I sent in my requests for a cruise in Nov. 2017 and May 2018. Within 3 days the OBC for both of them was in my Personalizer! Hope this policy continues.

Just to add to this information:
If you FAX in your request you can wait a short while then call 800 872 6779 ext. 3031

This is the number and extension where you can verify that your FAX was received. They will ask what telephone number (or area code) the FAX was sent from and then look it up and apply the credit right then while you are on the phone. Be sure to just put in the extension when asked in the very beginning of the recording as that will take you directly to the proper people.

Note: If you use one of the Internet FAX services (several free ones - just Google for the info) then be sure to tell the person on the phone that is what you did. That way they don't hassle about a phone number. I used one this time (no longer able to FAX from work as I no longer work - YES!!!) and when I told the person on the phone she found my FAX right away and applied the OBC.

I've had mine rejected in the past but I'll give it a try & see how it works out today. It's one less thing I have to keep myself reminded of.

I was just filling out my shareholder form for my October cruise and noticed that it said that the benefit could not be used for gratuities. I know that some of my shareholder benefit has been used to pay for gratuities in the past. Is this a new policy?

Thank you Carnival Corp. We bought around $11, and have probably gotten back our original cost in OCB's over 27 cruises. A great benefit!!

It's a simple credit to our onboard account from which any debits are paid including gratuities.

GAH! Sorry about that. Stupid mistake that could cause a lot of frustration. Many thanks for catching that and giving the corrected information.

I was a bit slower and paid $18/share. The return on my investment has been nothing short of fantastic. I just wish my other investments had the same return and I have collected many times on the OBC both on Princess and CCL cruises making the investment return even better. I love it that it applies to all 9 of Carnival Corp cruise lines. We will have received 5 OBC for this year alone. Cruise on my fellow cruisers.

Happy to help as all of us share useful information with each other like you posted.

I've had to recently call them for 2 cruises to have it placed in my wife's credit account. We jointly own the CCL shares & requested it in her name but unfortunately they automatically issue it to the first name on the booking...me. I receive the same amount in military credit so we want equal amounts in case we use credits to pay to book tours before sailing.

I've read posts that by calling Princess to book tours they can share our credits but prefer to have equal amounts to be able to reserve tours using the Cruise Personalizer.
