Leave the cards in the safe at the resort until you need them to make the payments.
Thank you so much! Love the idea of using them for the resort charges...

I get my mine mailed to me. It took about 10 days. I get an in store coupon and an online code voucher. I'm not sure if you can stack the 5% off in-store coupons though, I just started the program.

Side Note: Used my last in-store discount with my Redcard and a $7 off coupon for 'Oz the Great and Powerful Bluray'! (It was about to expire)

I have to renew my annuals in September, so I'm hoping I can use my next ones to buy gift cards for my flex pay deposit!!

Can you get Target GCs with the Lowe's GCs? You can buy Disney GC at Target with Target GCs.

It would stand to reason that if they will not let you buy a Disney Gift Card that the policy would not be different for a Target Gift Card

As others have already said you can not use Lowes gift cards to buy any other gift cards. The system they use will not allow it, where as at Target, the system is set up in a way that most gift cards are "entertainment" items.

I use the RX reward with my red debit card all the time. ( we fill 13 RX a month) It will not be a true 10% however, it takes 5% off then another 5%. I bought $500 in cards yesterday and paid $451

I have heard this as well, but to my knowledge no one has confirmed it yet. If you read the card it says that only one may be used at a time so I assume the computer might not allow it. I have been too afraid to try because once the card is scanned it is only good for that day and I was worried that if they scanned it and it did not work I would not be able to use it later.

Can anyone tell me how much you save by buying a Disney gift card at Costco? Is it the same nationwide? I live 100+ miles from the nearest one, but a friend is a member and willing to purchase cards for me. I'm trying to decide if it's worth the effort for her to do that.

Locally I can buy them at Sams $48.88 for a $50 card. Is the Costco savings better? We do not have Albertsons, Target, Shop/Save, BJs or any of the other large chains I've seen mentioned here--one of the 'perks' to rural living!

We also use a local grocery store pharmacy (HyVee) which offers no perks except gas rewards. Wondering if I should switch to CVS, Walgreens or Sams for meds.

Well, maybe I'm confused but I thought my travel agent said I could save about 5% by buying Disney gift cards at Costco.

If you are using Target gift cards to buy Disney gift cards there is currently a mobile offer on Groupon to get a $10 Target gift card for $5

Thanks for the heads up on the Groupon. It will be put to good use.
