Thank goodness! You gave me a scare

Glad it was just a fluke.

I posted this is the H-E-B thread, but I thought it deserved a repost here just in case some only see this thread. You only have until midnight Tuesday night to try this.

I figured out a way to turn this 16.7% Disney Gift Card discount into a 20% discount. If you happened to take advantage of the HEB Cyber Monday $5 off $50 deal (it may still be available), you can print off as many copies of it as you want. And this coupon is stackable with the H-E-B coupons.

So I bought a $100 Disney Gift Card, used the coupon for $15 off, and then used the Cyber Monday print out email barcode for $5 more off. I paid $80, so 20% off. I repeated that a few times.

I got my debit card in September and immediately after I got it, I purchased my new camera, which was $300. I also did a little additional shopping. If there is a limit, I have no idea what it is, but mine definitely wasn't $150. Perhaps it varies by individual based on what your bank account looks like at the time you apply.
A while back, a Target employee posted a chart on here about the limits on the cards - that is where I got the $150 figure as the starting limit (and my memory is fuzzy on that - it might have been more but it wasn't much more. Again, IIRC, that was the limit for the temp card which is what it sounded like the OP had - she had just opened the account). But based on what others have posted here, it sounds like that has changed. Not an issue to me since we aren't fans of staying on-site at Disney so I am never trying to purchase enough to pay for an entire package. But I'm glad it's easier for others.

The Facebook promo isn't valid on gift cards.

Thanks for this info but the it says excludes gift card purchases, so they will accept it anyway?. Headed back today hope it works.

Wonder if that just means HEB and Amex/Visa gift cards are excluded?

Yep. That's what that means. It works on Disney "entertainment" cards. Plus, you don't technically have to use a Mastercard to make the purchase.

Really you don't have to use MasterCard?? I checked my wallet and I don't have a MasterCard in it right now and I'm at work. so I can use a Visa??? If so

That's right. Once the Bar Code on the offer is scanned, it just takes $5 off your total. You can use any payment method. I used my Disney Visa to essentially get 21% off Disney through this deal.

You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.
