I just bought my first GC's at Sam's Club at 142.88 for $150. The big deal with that is that I bought them with Walmart GC's that I earned from doing Swagbucks. I have almost enough for a second set of $150, and I think that I can eke out another $300 worth before December! That $600 will then contribute toward a lot of our in-park food. Swagbucks is a pain, yes, to some extent, but especially with the different mobile apps, it can be done more easily. I have earned over $800 since I started, but I have usually used them for Amazon cards for Christmas. Super excited that I found a way to do Disney with it, but I just wish I had found it sooner!

Thanks for posting this! I get at least 5000 sb a month or about $50 in gift cards worth. I've just been using them for gas cards and then taking the money I would've spent on gas and putting it in our Disney fund.

Not a bad plan, but this way you also save 7 bucks off every 150. It's not HUGE, but it is something, esp since you didn't pay for the money in the first place. If you consistently get that many, consider taking your next GC purchase, making it a paypal one, then use that paypal acct to pay for the accelerator. That uses $10 from the paypal/mo, but gives you 1500 SB, so a net gain of $60/year.

You can also get discount Walmart gift cards on Cardpool.com. Sometimes they offer a 4-5% discount (standard is 3% off).
