What does it mean on Holland gift card site that says I couldn’t purchase cards because I hadn’t made 5 standard purchases??

I should of read the forum before purchase of RCCL gift cards. I did not read it because the process with Carnival was almost flawless. A small hiccup but it was resolved promptly.

It looks like I am not the only person with an issue on redemption with RCCL. AARP will lose clients if they keep this vendor. Yes there are instructions, yes there is fine print. However the verbiage is very conflicting. I hope to have resolution by 1/29/2024. If not, shame on me. I promise you that AARP nor RCCL will ever have me in this predicament again. They say NEVER say NEVER, but I mean NEVER! 

 

******DO NOT BUY RCCL gift card through AARP. ******

If you are going to apply to booking it may work, I’m not sure. You cannot use for onboard credit excursions or anything of that sort. My cruise was paid in full when I purchased. I thought I could apply to excursions, onboard credit etc.. after sending an email and waiting 10 days .. I’m basically stuck with a gift card requiring me to book another cruise , unless you want to purchase it from me.

Are the Holland America gift cards no longer available?  Or will they be back at some point?  Thanks in advance!

Do the AARP Holland America gift cards have expiration dates?  Are they refundable if I cancel my cruise before payment?  I see that there is a limit to how many one person can buy in a month, but is there a limit to how many I can buy over several months?  Is there a limit to how many Holland America will accept?

If you cancel, the money is put back onto the original gift card. If you put the value of the gift cards onto your ship on board account and you don’t spend it all, the unused balance is put back onto your original gift card.

Help! I called Princess Cruiseline and they will not take their own gift cards! I was told to call a travel agent and a travel agent could process my transaction using your AARP Princess Gift Card. My question is, can I get a refund if no one will take my Princess Cruise Gift Card?😳

@PeggyH861894 I'm sorry, Peggy. We are unable to refund purchases made on the AARP Rewards site. I invite you to check the Rewards terms here: https://www.aarp.org/about-aarp/rewards-terms-and-conditions/ I recommend contacting Princess again and requesting to speak with a supervisor for further assistance. Also, be sure to review the gift card terms and disclosures.

2 months ago I took mine on board and customer service applied them to my on board account. I would call or chat with princess again and see if that person made a mistake. My travel agent accepted them as payment for another booking. Good luck

Did you book directly with Princess?  I am w/ a discounted cruise agency, and my TA applied about $2000 worth of these gift cards with no issue for my final payment last week.  Remaining gift card balance, I was told I can use on the ship.  She told me, just go to guest services and have them apply to my account.  What I did find out recently though is that I can not use their gift card to buy a shore excursion or anything else in advance.

It would seem so.  My wife tells me that she remembers seeing somewhere that the deal was to end on May 31.  And I don't see it on the AARP site any more either.

Hi there, I keep clicking on the link https://www.aarp.org/rewards/redeem/  and it keeps bringing me to the same "get started with AARP rewards" page. I've signed up but it's like a loop that keeps bringing me back to that same page. Is the site broken right now?
