Probably different. That's for items you buy in the store other than prescriptions. I get a couple of bucks every quarter myself.

I just noticed that they had them last week, so I don't know if they sell them in denominations other than $25.
I was just looking the BJ's reward membership page and it says that gift cards are excluded from the rewards. Do you think that is just for BJ's GC's? I have a rewards membership and would love to get the extra 2% back! I think I'll call member services and try to get an answer.

I had forgotten the no gift cards thing. I don't know if that means just BJs cards (I can see why they wouldn't allow that) or if it's all GCs. I'll check my receipt, if I can find it, to see if I got the rewards for the one I bought earlier this week.

I would truly appreciate you checking the receipt, as the person I spoke to didn't seem to understand what I was asking

I totally forgot that the receipt doesn't show what your rewards are for that trip. It only shows the total so far and it doesn't update until the end of the day, so my next receipt should show how much I've earned. I think there's supposed to be a way to look it up online, but I haven't figured that out yet.

OK... I found it. I still don't have a definite answer, but it looks like I did get the rewards for the GC. My last trip I bought a $50 GC (I thought I bought a $25 GC and thought it seemed like I spent a lot. LOL) for $47.99. I spent a total of $86.76 before tax (I'm pretty sure you don't get rewards on tax). 2% of that would be $1.74. The receipt said that as of that date I had earned $16 (rounded to the nearest dollar). When I went online it says to date I've earned $17.75. Without the GC I spent $38.77. 2% of that would be $.78. The most I could have earned for them to round down to $16 would be $16.49 (that's an assumption, but I think it's a pretty safe one) and if you add $.78 to that, I would only have $17.27

Thank you so much!!! I truly appreciate you doing that for me!!!

So I checked one of my local BJ's and no Disney gift cards I will check the other one on Tuesday, and keep my fingers crossed.

OK... It turns out I was wrong. On the receipt they don't round to the nearest dollar. I had $17.75 in rewards after my last visit, but when I went yesterday my receipt said I had $17 in rewards. I spent $71.84 before tax, including a $25 GC for $23.99 and today I had $18.71 in rewards, which is exactly what it would be if I didn't get the rewards for the GC.

I just wanted to tell you all thank you very much! I used my RX 5% card last night at two different Targets to get my discount on the gift cards. One had $50 cards and the other one had $25 cards. I bought a ton at each and neither cashier batted an eye. It took a long time to check out, but they were both so patient. Once I was done, they asked why I was doing it and I told them why and they were so excited for me. We started entering the cards last night to pay for vacation and it was so much fun seeing the balance go down a little at a time. I felt so good after buying the gift cards and my husband was so excited too.

Thank you everyone!!!!!! I would have never known about this if it weren't for you.

FYI: I received this in mail: http://savinggreeninthebay.com/new-t...-card-holders/ and was able to use the 5% coupon and my 5% redcard discount on Disney cards. I bougth $1,000 in gift cards for $902.50. No issues at all!

I also had a $5 of $50 target coupon that I received in the mail a couple of weeks ago and I was able to apply that to a $50 disney card.

When did you get the coupons? I would love to get a deal like this! I just bought my Disney cards last night though. It would be kind of funny if I got the coupon! (funny and sad...) Although, I could use a few more GC for tips on our free dining, I think you can put tips on the GC, right?

I received the $5 coupon a week or two ago. I think it was inside a flyer about the prescription program. There were several other health related coupons.

I received the 5% coupon on Tuesday.
