    $20 gift card with $200 online Mastercard purchase

    Signed up for this promotion. Register your mastercard, spend $200 online between 11/15 and 12/31, and ultimately receive a $20 gift card. It's been almost 2 weeks since I made my qualifying online purchase. I have yet to receive the redemption form to complete which was supposed to have arrived via email 1 week after purchase. Anyone else having problems?

    I haven't gotten a form, either. I tried to sign up again to make sure I was registered, but the system said they already had my info. Soooo... I guess we just wait.

    We've gotten one form (haven't gotten the card in the mail yet though). We used Mrs. Aces' card on 11/19 and got the email from MC on 11/22 acknowledging the $200 spend with the link to fill out the gift card info (name, address, etc.). I haven't seen anything for my card yet (spending on 11/24).

    Silly me. I just realized the requirement was $200 online after 11/15. I've been spending up a storm on the card I registered, but most of it was in restaurants. Buying Christmas presents should help me out. :oops:

    I signed up for this the morning of the 15th and immediately spent over $200 online in a single transaction. Still have not received my form.

    They didn't specify whether it had to be a single or combination of transactions adding up to $200, which concerned me. They didn't specify much, actually, which is probably why we're all a little bit confused. Completed my transactions on 25th, no word yet.

    The FAQ's clearly say that they are looking at the cumulative amount.

    I signed up/completed $200 online purchase first day and never received the email. One week later I contacted them. After a few "back & forth's" I got the gift card email. It seems several people are having issues so it's best to contact them.

    Can't tell you the dates, but I signed up, spent the $200 in a total of two purchases, few days later received the email and have not as of yet received the card. As soon as we receive the first card, I did indeed sign up a different MC at a different email and will try to run a 2nd through. The offer did state one per household, so skeptical, but willing to try as they are both mileage earners anyway.

    After successfully signing up with my card, I tried to sign up with my wife's MasterCard. The error message said it wasn't a MasterCard. :(

    Great!
    How long ago did you complete your spend? I just completed my spend this morning, and I am wondering about how long it should take until I hear from them.

    11/22... given that I am a procrastinator, it took me that long to find the time to donate $200 to a hopefully worthy cause.

    When I filled out the form for the $20 card, it told me:

    "In order to receive your $20 MasterCard gift card, please complete the following form. Subject to your acceptance of the promotional Terms & Conditions (see below), your gift card will arrive in 1 to 2 weeks."

    Thanks for the info.
    My $200 went to Kiva loans this morning. :)

    Kiva is still on my procrastination to-do list... I might just try to snag a second $20 gift card with another MC...

    I found the terms and conditions confusing. Do you think they will allow us to get the gift card with a second card?
    I have 3 Mastercards.

    It says "There is a limit of (1) Gift per person, email address or per MasterCard card account number, as applicable". I am not 100% sure how to interpret that either, the 1 gift per person would rule out a second gift card for me (the person), but I have many email addresses and multiple MCs, so why did they include those "or" conditions? And what does "as applicable" mean? I think worst case they won't send you a second card but as it might motivate me to get going with Kiva, I'll give it a shot.

    This is a great time to get started with Kiva. They have more loans available than any time I've ever seen. And the Milepoint team is closing in on $1 million in loans. Should reach that milestone in the next two weeks. :)
    Let me know if you have any questions (or just post on one of the Kiva threads).

    Got the email on 12/1 for the 11/24 spend on my card. Have not received either physical gift card in the mail yet.

    Purchased a Kiva credit on 30 November, got my e-mail to get my $20 bonus card today. Never received an e-mail confirmation that I had registered.

    Just got Mrs. Aces $20 gift card in the mail. So the initial MC $200 use was 11/19, MC email acknowledgement & registration for the gift card was 11/22, and gift card arrived on 12/9. Still waiting on mine - it should be a few days behind. Great promo!!

    Finally got my e-mail after some correspondence with customer service. Filled out the form and got a message that my gc is on the way. Cautiously optimistic...

    I never got mine. Wrote them an e mail. Their response was that I did not make the purchase. So, I now sent them a copy of my purchase confirmation from Home Depot. Still waiting.
