Awesome! Thanks for posting. I just bought the $100 for $79.99, arrived in the mail last week. Now I know I can use it there!

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

Just curious, do you think this can be used at the quick service Yak and Yeti?

Throughout this thread, many have inquired about consolidating your smaller Disney Gift Cards into larger amounts. I wanted to let the DIS know that indeed you can still do this by calling the number on the back on the gift card.

My Mom bought 20 $50 gift cards for $38 each with her RedCard from Target during one of their annual December weekend sales, paying $760 total. This is her report after I advised her to call during weekday business hours:

Quote:
Called today about combining the money on my gift cards. Got a nice guy named Joey. He said to copy the back of the card and the receipt from the purchase and to FAX it to him. Luckily we still had both cards and receipts. The limit was $1000. So I did that much.
She scanned in her gift cards and her receipts and emailed the images to him. Joey called her personally today to tell her it worked. She called the automated line today and indeed she had $1000 on one gift card. One reason this was important for us is that we get a 10% discount on tickets if you order on the Disney corporate partner website, which now has a 1 Gift Card limit, so we are glad to get to use the gift cards on the tickets.

Hope this helps. This is yet another reason to SAVE YOUR RECEIPTS when buying Disney Gift Cards, and don't throw them away until the Gift Card value is $0 with no chance at a refund.

That's a good question. Hopefully someone will try it and report back.

The phone number on the back of the gift card. I will edit my post to add that in. Thank you.

Has anyone successfully redeemed Target gift cards for Disney GC's lately? I have some MyPoints points to redeem, and trying to figure out what card to get with them. Walgreen's wouldn't let me do it before, so that is out. I can also get a Prepaid Visa, but that is more points, so if I can use the Target card for it, that would be ideal.

In December, you got a $10 Target Gift Card with every $50 Disney "Entertainment" Card purchase. You could then turn around and buy a second $50 Disney card for $40 and the $10 Target Gift Card ($38 if you used a Target RedCard). You could also do 5 transactions at once, get 5 Target Gift Cards, and then pay for the next Disney card with those 5 Target Gift Cards and no additional cash. So in December you were able to use Target Gift Cards to buy Disney cards.

For those of you who are near Giant Eagle stores, they are offering double fuel perks May 16 - 29th on everything in the store including gift cards. If you get the full 30 gallons when you redeem them that equals a 12% savings on the gift cards.

I love getting gift cards during these times, because my Amex gives me 3x rewards for purchases at grocery stores so that equals a 15% savings on the gift cards

Cool! Thanks!
Crossing my fingers it works! If not, I buy plenty at Target anyway, so....

With Father's Day coming up, I am patiently (sort of) waiting to see if any gift card deals come out for my local grocery store. We'll see!! I know for Mother's Day it was a bust.

Thank you for bumping this and the OP who mentioned it. I never would have made the connection because I didn't know Landry's bought them out. (they bought a lot of people in the last 2 years, they own Bubba Gumps now too) I'm going to be ordering these from costco and they have ghiradelli ones too for the same discount.

Is this a week-long promo or even longer? Is it every year?!
