To do this, you must purchase airline tickets with your Disney Premier card. There are no limits to what airline you can use or blackout dates, though you must book directly with the airline, a travel agent, or a travel website. You’ll then pay yourself back by redeeming a minimum of 50 Disney Rewards Dollars for a credit on your monthly statement within 60 days of purchasing your ticket.

The Disney experts here at Upgraded Points averaged the cost for a family of 4 to spend $4,000 on a 5-day stay, including tickets, meals, drinks, merch, and tours. Assuming you visit Walt Disney World or Disneyland once a year for 5 days, dine out generously, buy merch, and take a guided tour, your savings would come out to $400 annually.

5. Disney Bundle Discounts [$45]

You’ll get $14.99 per month (up to 3 consecutive months) in statement credits on qualifying The Disney Bundle subscription purchases that total $14.99 or more. The Disney Bundle Trio Basic plan is an ideal choice at a cost of $14.99 per month.

6. Disney Vacation Financing

You’ll get a special 0% promo APR for 6 months on select Disney vacation packages from the date of purchase, after that a variable APR of 19.24% - 28.24%.

Hot Tip:

Learn from our Disney pros with tips on how to visit Disney World for cheap by using points and miles.

7. shopDisney.com Savings [$20]

You’ll get 10% off select credit card purchases at shopDisney.com. Note that this discount is not valid on purchases made at Disney Parks and Resorts locations or on Disney store merchandise purchased from other retailers or using third-party websites.

To take advantage of the savings, mention this benefit in the store (with your Disney Premier card) or use promo code DRVCMEMBER online.

Assuming you purchased something from the site at $50 per purchase once a quarter, it would result in a savings of $20 annually, so we’ll value this particular benefit at $20, though it could be higher if you find yourself using shopDisney.com often.

Travel Benefits and Protections

8. Baggage Delay Insurance [$50]

If your baggage is delayed over 6 hours, you can receive up to $100 a day for 3 days to purchase essentials like toiletries and clothing.

11. DoorDash DashPass Membership [$96]

Get a 1-year complimentary DoorDash DashPass, which provides unlimited deliveries with $0 delivery fees and lower service fees on eligible orders. Given that a standard DashPass membership costs $8 a month (or $96 annually), assuming you don’t already have a membership with another card, we’ll value this benefit at $96.
