I bought 3 $100 ecards yesterday, got them in just a few minutes, applied them right away. I looked this morning out of curiosity and the $500 ecards are apparently sold out, but there are still $100 ecards left.  I'm glad they brought them back, and hope they continue.

 

just curious, can you check your transaction history on the aarp site and tell me what it says for status/shipping method? Mine currently looks like this:

I purchased 5 $100 e gift cards last night and my status looks like yours. No email and it doesn’t appear my card has been charged yet.

Which is why I only deal with my Carnival PVP.  TA are a pain and I prefer to avoid the middle man.

Normally do it all myself also as I do the research anyway but this time required I use that TA because of point usage. It would also have been a couple days after final pmt (I booked just before final pmt and don't cruise often enough to have cards on hand) so that may have been the reason. Just wish ecards had been available at the time.

Got enough to use onboard and for excursions though so some savings.

I'm showing both the $100 and $500 e-cards in stock.

Any limit on the amount of gc ?

 

I don't think so, but I'm not absolutely certain. I know people have bought a large amount (dollar wise). If there is a limit, I'm sure it'll tell you during the order process.

My PVP said we could get a payment cancellation and pay with a different form of payment as long as it’s before final payment with the exemption of the deposit.

 

Well, that makes our decision for us. We booked & paid the deposit without any gift cards, so when another user said we could change the payment method, we thought about doing it with the deposit. But if it doesn't apply with the deposit, we don't need to worry about it.

Mine came right after the transaction was complete. I’ve seen people say that they didn’t get theirs right away but they paid debit. I paid credit and it was instant. 

 

I've always bought my e-cards with my debit and they came right away. I don't think that's why.

 

For anyone who still hasn't received theirs yet, check your spam folder first. Otherwise, call AARP. My guess is they'll tell you to wait at least 24 hours. I'm not speaking from experience, just have a feeling they're going to say wait a little longer. I hope I'm wrong, good luck.

What is the web address for the e-gift cards

ty

 

https://www.aarp.org/rewards-for-good/

 

You have to create an account, which is free and does not require an AARP membership. You'll earn points for signing up. You can also sign up to receive email newsletters and some of those will give you a promo code to enter on the RFG website for 150 points each. Once you are logged in, click on "Earn Points" near the top. There you can take short quizzes to earn more points (up to 5,000 pts./day). When you're ready to purchase the gift cards, click on "Redeem My Points." Then go to "Gift Cards - Travel" to see the Carnival cards. You cash in 1,000 points for 10% off every $100 card you buy or 5,000 points for each $500 card. Making them $90 and $450.

Just a heads up, I called their help line (888-842-2891), gave them my order number and they had the gift cards emailed to me in under a minute. 

I then ordered another eCard that arrived in email in minutes without having to call.

Ironically, I also received an email from UPS letting me know that the regular gift cards I ordered on Monday night will be arriving today. 2 days is not a bad turn around.

I also ordered a couple e-gift cards yesterday and got the confirmation email but no gift cards yet. Nothing in my junk folder. I will likely call them if it doesn't show by the time the credit card charge changes from pending. 

I called today and was told the e-cards typically show up in e-mail within 10 minutes.  She re-sent the email and I had it before we ended the call.

I have a question about using the cards. I ordered a $500 card. Do I have to use it all on one purchase or can I split it up among several? I want to apply them today two different cruises so I was wondering if that's possible? 

 

You can split it. I owe like 187 on my next cruise. A $500 gift card is going to cover that and the remainder is going on the cruise after that.

Yep, you can split it. For cruise payments, just choose the "Other Amount" option instead of the balance option, then enter the amount from the card you want to use. Pick the gift card tab and you're all set to enter the card info.
