    Default $500 Credit...??

    Hello All!

    My husband and I are heading to CSA for our (late) honeymoon at the end of April. I keep reading about a $500 credit... how do I know if we qualify for and receive this credit?

    Thanks!!

    It was a reservation incentive. If it wasn't offered when you made your reservation, you don't qualify.

    I know everything, and I'm always right (just ask my husband).

    When did you purchase your vacation? That's the key... if you purchased prior to June 30, 2009, you are eligible for a $350 spa/$150 gift shop credit voucher. I'm not sure when the second credit offer began(in December or January, Randymon?), but that offer included a $500 credit voucher to use for anything on-resort that can be charged to your room... spa services, floral arrangements, gift shop purchases, special (non-inclusive) wines, etc.

    Enjoy your special time at SweptAway!

    Thanks for the clarification, Juli! That particular booking incentive is, indeed for 2011, and expires on April 15 (tax day).

    After reading this thread I have a quick question myself..We booked our trip in Sept 2009 for travel in 24 days (April 16th) Would we qualify for this $500 credit even though I booked through a travel agent?

    Yes, here is the link for the 2011 $500 credit: http://couples.com/04special.htm#earlyescapes. You must book at one resort for at least 7 nights, book before April 15, 2010 and travel December 26, 2010 through December 25, 2011.

    The 2010 $500 bonus was only offered for those who booked last June or so. It was part of the 2010 Early Booking Bonus.

    How do you know if you qualify for the credit? Do you get the credit if you book through a travel agent or juwt directly through Couples

    I have a question about how the resort knows about your credit. We had to rebook our trip and our new itinerary doesn't indicate the credit in its name (although we've been assured we'll have the credit when we arrive).

    Sorry, meant to add that we originally booked with Couples and rebooked with them directly.

    ElaineChick...

    The specials are coded for use by TA's, the same as when you book with Couples.

    You may actually have read about TWO separate promotions that Couples has run.

    Last year, Couples ran a promotion that if you booked your reservation (did not have to be through the Couples website, we booked through a travel agent) prior to June 30, 2009 for 2010 travel, you received a $350 spa credit plus a $150 gift shop credit for a total of $500. Of course, you had to book prior to June 30 of last year to qualify for this one.

    There is another special running now (again, it doesn't matter how you book) that if you book by April 15, 2010 for travel in 2011, you will receive a $500 resort credit (good for anything that you can charge for your room).

    I believe, also, that both of these promotions have/had a 7-night stay minimum. If you meet these requirements, you get the credit!
