Carnival Sea Miles is now Carnival Fun Points

just got this email saying they are changing Sea Miles into Fun Points, with more flexible rewards, and the new card will be mailed out in January.

 

Wonder if they will decrease my 26% APR?  There has to be a more "fun" interest rate than that!   :smileyhappy:

Hope they do. But doubt it. 26%APR is fun indeed for them.  Perhaps they are only being more forthright with their name eh? :smileyhappy:

Sea Miles/Fun Ponts, anyway you slice it this rewards program is not very good. Why? You can book the cruise for better rates without using your miles/points. Be sure you shop your cruise purchase before you book it through Sea Miles or whatever they call it now.

Re: Carnival Sea Miles is now Carnival Fun Points

Actually I think this will be a better reward program. From what I read on my card it appears that you can now buy the cruise form anywhere and apply your "fun points" to get a statement credit against your pruchase. So while it's not a direct discount, it seems like will give a lot more flexibility at least.
