Carnival gift cards

It looks to me like the Carnival gift cards are gone!

 

Am I looking in the wrong spot?

Where can we sell these for a decent price?  I have $600 cruise credit due to cruise being cancelled.  Don't think I could use even the full $600, much less the cards I bought here.  Thanks

PM me I'll be happy to buy them from you for our Cruise in 2022. I tried to PM you directly but doesn't seem to let me PM you. So, asking if you'll PM me instead. Thx

@WilliamJ206573 @KandyP234702 @JohnP366062 It is a violation of AARP's terms of service to sell your gift cards through the AARP Community.

I don't want to sell to an individual.  No way for either  party to ensure they don't get screwed.  I am looking for a service that acts as an intermediary where they buy your gift card at a % discount (looking for the least discount) then resale to someone else.

Because of the limit on buying more than one per month, I haven't been following.  But, if there is only the $100 card available, what makes AARP think that people aren't purchasing them now for a cruise well into the future, when the travel restrictions are lifted?

Exactly. That's how most people buy Carnival cards. They build them up over time. Some do it even when they don't have a cruise booked, but know they will. What does the pandemic have to do with buying gift cards for future cruises? What does AARP have against people building up their own stockpile of cards?

Hello @oc13215 

 

They posted end of last week with the Changes to Catalog post that all travel and theatre cards were being removed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.  Hope this helps answer your question.

 

Have a Blessed & Safe Day

I asked my travel agent if Carnival egift cards could be used to load Sign & Sail card.  He told me NO, that only cash, credit cards, and debit cards can be used.  Has anyone recently been able to use these e-gift cards for that purpose?

Your travel agent doesn't know what he is talking about, you can load gift cards on your account when you get to the ship. I do it all the time

Your travel agent is wrong.  Any carnival gift card (ecard or physical card) can be loaded to your sign and sail account.  With the physical card you just hand the card over to Guest Services sometime after you board the ship and they load it to your account.  With the ecard you just jot the number and pin on a piece of paper (or show them the email) and they will also load it to your account.  I have done both MANY TIMES on Carnival ships.  Now I do prefer the physical card, because on the very, very off chance they might say "this card has already been used," I can immediately show them that the pin number has not been exposed, so it is impossible for it to have been previously used.  But that has never happened to me on more than a half dozen cruises where I have used the gift cards!

I was just looking at AARP Carnival gift cards in the Redeem area, and it makes no mention of them being e-cards.  Are they real cards now?  Has anyone purchased one recently?

When you click on the Carnival gift card to bring up the Add to Cart page, at the top it says "Digital Gift Card" and under Disclaimer, it says "Fulfilled as a digital gift code."

Go to your AARP Rewards homepage, click on Redeem, then the Members Only tab. The Carnival gift cards are the first one in the list for me. Keep in mind, you do need to be a paying member of AARP to buy one and now have to use PayPal or ApplePay to make the purchase.

I'm here today to try to find where the Carnival Cruise Gift cards are located on the AARP website.

 

I bought a couple back in February, 2020 for our cruise late February-Early March 2020 (which was truly fantastic, as the ship was not very crowded). 
I can't seem to find the section to buy them now. 😢

The site is currently not operating for some reason.  Keep coming back to check on it.
