Carnival Cruise Line’s FunPoints card is powered by Barclaycard.  By using this card for everyday purchases, you can earn not only free onboard credit for your cruise, but you can also cruise for free.  Here are seven reasons why you should get Carnival’s FunPoints Card.

Bonus Points

Just for signing up for the card, you will receive 10,000 FunPoints after your first purchase. That’s enough bonus points for up to $100 towards your next cruise purchase. That’s like someone handing you a $100 bill.

10% Refund

You will receive a 10% refund on all shore excursions you book on Carnival.com prior to your cruise. Shore excursions can really enhance your cruise and getting a 10% refund makes them even sweeter.

No Annual Fee

Having Carnival’s FunPoints card will cost you absolutely nothing.  There is no annual fee, so everything you earn with the card is a bonus.

2x FunPoints

You will earn two points on every dollar you spend with Carnival Cruise Line.  This includes your cruise fare, your onboard cruise account, and on any purchases with the brands of the World’s Leading Cruise Lines.  This can really add up for those to take several Carnival cruises each year.

1x FunPoints

You will earn one point per dollar on every single purchase you make with the card.  Every purchase you make will earn you points that you can turn into free onboard spending money on your next cruise.

No Foreign Transaction Fees

Enjoy greater freedom with no foreign transaction fees. This comes in extremely handy when you are shopping in port. These fees can really add up when shopping in another country, and you will avoid them if you use your Carnival FunPoints card.

Gifts and More

You can also use your Carnival FunPoints to redeem for gifts and amenities charged to your Sail & Sign card.  This will make your vacation even better.

Tips for using Carnival’s FunPoints Card

Make sure to pay off your balance in full each month.  This will help you avoid any interest fees. If you are paying interest fees, it negates any rewards that you are earning. This is important since the whole point in having this card is to earn free rewards for your cruises.

You will never pay a penny in interest with this card if you pay your entire balance by the due date each month.

Never use this card for any payment that charges you a fee for using a credit card.  When I filed my taxes, the IRS gave me the option of paying what I owed with a credit card.  My first thought was, awesome, I can earn free rewards for using my credit card. However, the fee they charged for it was greater than the rewards I would have received. So I obviously didn’t use my credit card.

You must be at least 18 years of age. This offer is available only to applicants who are residents of the United States, with the exception of Puerto Rico and the US territories.
