I have been trying to purchase a gift card from the Carnival site and every time my purchase gets cancelled.  Does anyone know why this might be happening or where else I can find them?

For long term planning check the Allstate topic and the AARP topic on this thread.

 

To buy some in the near future, some retail establishments have offered them in the past.  I think I remember people mentioning Krogers, Publix, and maybe Home Depot.

This is just me but I would think twice about buying a Carnival Gift Card right now.  At this point, nobody knows when cruising will restart.  Your money could be tied up for quite a while.  Then if you decide to not cruise or to cruise on another line, you now have money invested in a card that you can't use.

Do you have a credit card that accumulates points? I have a Citi credit card that I frequently use. I've always redeemed for dining gift cards. I'll soon have enough points for a $100 Carnival gift card. Same with a Bank of America card my wife had been using.

Bank of America has excellent credit cards. Great cash back rewards. One that has excellent travel insurance included. Which card I use, depends on what I am purchasing.

Can you tell me which BOA cc has travel insurance?

Re-enter your credit card information and check the entered expired date.  That is what resolved it for me

PREMIUM REWARDS. Once you apply for it and start using it. You will get $500.00 if you charge $3000.00 in the first 90 days. Google, Bank of America Charge Cards. It is the dark gray (Black) card. It is $95.00 a year. Read all that the card gives you including the massive travel coverage it offers. Check out the additional % in rewards you get depending on how much you keep in one of their approved checking and or saving accounts.

THanks.  I have several of their free cards but not that one.  I will check it out.

You can purchase Carnival gift cards at quite a few grocery stores. 

I have an Amex Plat card. Get 10x points at grocery stores. Recently purchased a $500 gift card at HEB here in TX.....5000 amex MR points. 

IMHO this is the best way to purchase card. 5k points is worth a $100 or more when redeemed for airline miles.
