    Anything that isn't prepaid... from the T&C: Prepaid cards, including Visa Buxx, Visa Gift cards, Visa Healthcare cards, Visa Incentive cards, and Visa TravelMoney, are not eligible for enrollment at this time.

    From the T&C, points should post 4-6 weeks after enrollment.

    Good to know, thanks... I was wondering if this was similar to the previous Hilton offer that was targeted to Visa signature. I guess the only catch is that you'll get some spam from them. :)

    It's not bad, it's just a lot of times people will post to threads "I registered, but haven't received my points yet, when will they show up?" so I figured I would preempt the question :)

For customer service or support in connection with Priority Club Rewards On the Go, send a text message containing "HELP" to Priority Club Rewards On the Go 868-472 from your enrolled mobile device.

    Not real interested in providing a Visa to enroll to receive spam. A little more than questionable.

    Yeah, not real interested in 500 points only to get spammed. And really? They can crawl through my transaction history?

    The program is being run through Visa, so providing Visa with my card number to tailor the text messages to my spending habits should not be a problem. They already can do that via other means. In addition, we all have a card sitting in the drawer that we signed up for the bonus and never used. Thanks OP.

    Not a fan of signing up for points only to get cell spam and then have to ... pay for it even though it's just a few cents.

    I tried to use my google voice number and the verification text messages never got delivered, so I switched to my actual mobile number.

    I can't say that it's a bad clause. I just thought it interesting that they include it. IIUC, they are not saying that they would be giving any of your Visa transaction information to IHG. Instead, Visa is saying that Visa will use your transaction history to tailor the offers to you.

    That might be fine unless you have some past purchase history that you would absolutely not want used for this marketing method.

    Sign up then cancel. Once your enrollment is confirmed you can cancel, there's no term of length to get the points. At worst you're out two text messages. You can cancel via text or web.

    Exactly 24 hrs after signing up I received a text message about qualifying and earning 500 points within 4-6 weeks.
