Saw this at my local Sam's Club and now I'm thinking about buying some for our cruise. I will place a credit card on our account but would Disney not charge it until the end of our cruise? So that I could go down and have them apply the gift cards? That way I can get a 10% discount :banana:

Yay!

Just wanted to give an update ...

I bought two of the $100 Disney gift cards (good at all the parks, stores, and on cruises) at Sam's this past Sunday and the $10 free gift card is for the Disney Store, not the "generic" Disney one good everywhere Disney. It's still a good deal, but you need to have a store near you or use it online to get your $ worth from it. And it wasn't $100, it was a little less, $98.87 and no tax.

I'll use the gift cards to get some Christmas presents for my nieces and nephews, since my kids are past the Disney toy scene (other than Tron stuff, which we CAN'T WAIT FOR!). Nothing like getting something for free!

do you know if you can combine the $10 Disney Store cards for purchases? I was going to buy these to pay for our dining plan on our upcoming Thanksgiving trip at WDW. I need to buy 15 so I would have $150 in $10 cards for the Disney Store...can I use that all in one purchase or is it for use like $10 off a $25 purchase?

I am trying to decide what is best because since these are $98.87, I would also save about $16 off face value in addition to the $150 in Disney Store cards...but if I can not use the Disney Store cards that way it may be better to buy them at my local Kroger store that gives double fuel points and I could save on gas for the trip....

TIA

Thanks for letting me know about the bonus $10 one - that's a bummer as far as using it for the cruise but I could also buy things from disneystore.com so I still like it for my own use.

The Sam's deal is a package that has one $100 gift card and one bonus $10 gift card in it - and you're right I think the price was slightly less but I'd forgotten about that :thumbsup2

So....is this correct then....I buy the $100 gift card to use on my OBC...then I have a $10 gift card I can use at a disney store....does that mean a disney store in Downtown Disney?? We are going to MVMCP in 2 weeks. I could use the $10 gift card while we are at DISNEY!!!

I am pretty sure you can not purchase a gift card with a gift card. Maybe log into the disney store website, and select a $10 gift card, and see if it will allow you to pay using a gift card.
As for using multiple gift cards in one transaction, it should be possible, and pretty easy..... just slow as you have to type in the serial numbers on all cards.

Unfortunately it appears you are correct. I tried adding other things than Disney cards and was given the option to pay with a DisneyStore gift card, but not when I had a Disney Card in the cart :( Still, it would help with some christmas shopping to have the Disney Store cards.

I don't know if they sell Disney Dollars anymore ... I think the Disney Store only sells Disney Gift Cards now :confused3

I think I read that Disney Dollars are available for purchase somewhere online. Whether you can use gift cards for those, I don't know.

Oh, the games they make us play ... :lmao:

I don't doubt that they don't have any the places you guys checked, but I looked at mine and while they have them, they were not with the normal gift card section. In mine, they are on a full pallet display and they were at the end of the aisle that separates the entrance and exit doors (like where they put all the special stuff). So look around for a displa, not just at the gift card section. I'm sure not all of them will be at the end of the entrance aisle, they could be anwyere in the major aisles even or as end caps.

I'm pretty sure the $10 gift cards are only good at the Disney Store - 2 of them in Orlando (but not WDW) or across the U.S. ... or I think someone said you can also use them at disneystore.com

Correct, the extra ten is only for Disney store and disneystore.com. However, if you know you are going to pick up several hundred dollars you can use the extra ten for Christmas gifts! Here is a picture I went and took for people to hopefully have an easier time finding them:

Woo hoo! Thanks for the heads-up! I'm headed there later today. Hopefully the Dulles, VA store has them in already.

I just picked up some last night at Wegmans (wanted only $25 cards for stocking stuffers) and they had the cute new holiday design on them! :santa:

I went to the Dulles, VA Sam's Club this afternoon.

After searching high & low on their gift card kiosks, I found 6 of them.

Took them to customer service and asked them to check their computer to see if they had more. She came out on to the sales floor and looked at every kiosk I already looked at - guess she didn't trust me (there were 3 misc. gift card kiosks ... no nice, huge Disney display like pictured above, yet). Then she got a manager involved. They looked somewhere in the office. Then came back and said the person who would know where they are hiding is not working today and to check back tomorrow, but their computer says they have them ...... somewhere. :rotfl:

I also just called other area Sam's Clubs:

Frederick, MD - the item # is not yet listed in their system
Gaithersburg, MD - they have the cards in their system and when I asked her to check to see how many before I drove over there, she said that after checking another computer, it shows that they're due to be delivered to the store tonight.

The item # is 712598 - Disney Gift Card for $98.87 ... in case you want to call any of your local Sam's Clubs before venturing out.

Thank you, OP - for letting us know to be on the lookout! :)

Random question, but if I bought these to put towards our cruise would it make us ineligible to get the Disney Visa OBC since I paid a portion with a gift card? (We made our deposit with the Disney Visa)... just curious.

I might get 1 or 2... but don't want to be "stuck" with them...

I believe that store was wrong. The packaging and the DS card say it can't be used toward the purchase of theme park passes.

You know that high-end outlet mall that has a high-end Disney discount store in Orlando (not the lower-end outlet mall with the lower-end Disney discount store). I don't remember the names of either of the malls right now....Anyway, I think that the 1st disney store is run by the Disney folk. So would the gift cards be redeemable there? I love that store!

Can they be used at the huge Disney Store at Downtown Disney? We usually spend a bundle there and seems like we get a 10% discount there when using our Disney Visa.

Also, our local Dillons grocery store is offering 4x's gas points with the purchase of any of their gift cards including the Disney cards. I bought all of my holiday gift cards, Disney stocking stuffers cards for the kids, Disney gift cards for Valentines Day & Easter and a $250 Disney Card for us in preparation for our Dream trip in May. I used my Disney Visa, so got the extra bonus there too. This special is good through 12/11, so I plan to buy additional cards to pay for the cruise before it ends.

Let me ask a "just suppose" question...

If you use multiple gift cards to pay off a cruise and then something happens that you are unable to cruise (providing that one cancels before the final pay date), how would the refund be handled? Does it come back to the gift cards? Would DCL send me a gift card with the entire balance back or would I need to save the multiple $100 cards that I used to pay off the cruise for those $$$ to be put back on?

I know this sounds like a dumb question...but I was just curious.

I read somewhere, that it would be refunded to the cards, so you would have to keep the cards.

I too have purchased cards this week - $3300 worth. I would have done like you and bought a gift card at walmart BUT $33 is not enough to make me break my almost 3 years of not shopping at Walmart. Yes I shop at Sam's but it is a customer service issue for me with Walmart.

So I have purchased my cards and have paid off both cabins for our Feb. cruise. I had no problems except that I had to call them in to use them and not do them online as it would not let me - but no big deal - took about 20 minutes.

I have also already used $110 worth of my disney shopping cards for one order and have another $210 order ready to go. I would not worry about if the cards are having an error when you are trying to check the balance online - I got errors trying to use one online, just called in and had no problem at all.

One tip - if you use them for online shopping you have to enter one card, then your credit card, submit the order, wait for your confirmation email, then call in and have them add the other cards to the order. It is an extra step BUT Disney/Sams gave me almost $370 worth of free money ($33+ from only paying 98.83 per $100 - so while that is not a lot when buying ONE card - it sure adds up when you buy 33 of them!)

I am very happy with the small amount of extra time it took me to do the transactions for me to make $370 - and so far have had no trouble spending the gift cards at disneyshopping.com - I am getting things like Wii games, ornaments, games, bags, etc. - I wish I had not already bought my D&B wristlet as I could have used the money to treat myself to one of those - instead I got a set of Mickey Candy Cane headband ears!

Ok so maybe I just need to attempt a purchase and then make a call to add the other cards. I'm totally fine with taking a few minutes to save me some money. Thanks for the info. :)

yes it would not let me do it if I selected multiple cards (and then even if it had it only had room for 3 cards) so I called and asked what to do and that is what they told me to do. They do not charge your credit card until it ships so as long as you call in and put the cards on before it goes to shipping it will not charge your credit card. I placed my order in the morning and called in in the afternoon of the same day.

I am going in tomorrow to get 15 of them to pay off our Alaska cruise...now I am wondering...I want to use the $10 Disney Store cards to get a new Dooney purse, will I be able to call in and use all 15 cards towards the purchase or does Disney limit the number of cards? THANKS!

I just picked up $2200 worth at the Sam's club in Hanover Park, right on Barrington Rd.

I went to the Walmart next store, bought a Walmart gift with my Disney Visa. So I got the $220 in Disney Store gift cards along with my Disney Visa points. :)

I'm sorry but I don't understand this. Did you buy at $2200 walmart gift card with your Disney Visa then go to Sams and use it to buy the Disney store gift cards?

I went to the Sam's Club by our house yesterday and they had to have 50 of the cards left, they were on the stand with all the other gift cards, wish I had more money to buy them, so I got 10, might stop today and get 5 more. The kid checking me out said someone came in the other day and bought 50 of them :scared1:. Wish they had them when I started to pay off our cruise, I would have done it. I will be happy if I get the chance to buy enough so that I can use the free $10 GCs to get a Dooney purse :banana:!

In our store here in Georgia, they used to be on their own huge stand on the end of an aisle, but as it got closer to Christmas they moved them onto the stands with all the other gift cards, right at the front of the store before you get to the checkout. They pretty much look like all the other gift cards hanging there, and I didn't notice them at first. Both cards are packaged inside the cardboard holder, and the background is light blue. There's a picture of Mickey on the bottom right hand side and the left hand side says Disney gift card. Above that is a picture of the card, with all the Disney characters on it. Hope that helps!

Thanks for taking the picture. After your description earlier I went to my 3rd Sams Club and jumped for joy because they had about 60 of them. Woo Hoo! :woohoo: I got 11 and will probably go back to get enough to pay the cruise off since I already had the money for the cruise just sitting there.

Glad that you found some, wish I found them MONTHS ago when I was paying our expensive cruise, I could have gotten THREE Dooney purses. But now I am hoping the might have them for a little bit, so I can buy cards to use for our on board account.

Just thought I would bump to let people know that these are still out there! I purchased 34 today (Jan. 6) from the Fridley, MN Sam's Club and there were quite a few left.

My DH noticed them prior to Christmas at the Sam's nearest us, when he went yesterday they were out of the GC. He called around today and found them in Fridley. They also told him that if they didn't have enough - they would look up when I got there to see where there were more located locally.

Just thought I would share and let people know the deal's not dead yet.

Anyone, used them at WDW anywhere or only Disney Stores outside of WDW?

Glad you found some, glad to hear that Fridley has them, if I need to get more, I can run there, I am going to hit Apple Valley tomorrow to get a couple more. Sure wish they were going to be a thing that they kept.

I secretly thought that I could just "borrow" all the ones that they have and then each time I go in just pull out the ones I want to activate out of my purse and buy them. Would that be wrong? :rotfl::rotfl:

I went into my Sam's Club store today and the gift card rack was GONE! So I luckily saw a manager and asked him. He said that they are getting a new rack and that Disney Gift Cards WILL be on it. So I hope he is right, but he did say that he would go get me some of the GC's because they had them up in their office, I wanted 3, but he brought down 7 and I asked him if I could take the four extra and then come in next week and buy those and he said, heck yeah, so I did. My FREE Dooney purse will be mine SOON! Good luck everyone.

Just wanted to make sure you know that the bonus $10 gift card for Disney Stores is NOT good at the Disney Store in Downtown Disney. We had a ton of stuff to purchase and they wouldn't accept them. Went to guest services and they said their store is different than the Disney stores in the mall. IThey are only good to use in select mall locations and on line. Also, If you use on-line it is only 1 gift card per transaction unless you call after placing your order and have them apply the additional cards. It was a big hassle!

Can you use them in the Disney Store or on line to purchase tickets?

I can use the gift card to pay the balance on our resort at check in---correct?

It would be great to be able to use the "free" cards towards payment on our tickets.

If I were to save them for a future cruise, could the "free" cards be used in the gift shop on the ship?

TIA

No the $10 "Free" cards cannot be used at Parks, Resorts, or DCL. No tickets or gift cards. Plan on using them at Disney Stores in the mall or online and for merchandise only.

Hey everybody. Thought I would share what I did. Costco has a deal for DISNEYLAND. Get a 4 day hopper ticket and a $50 gift card for $200. I purchased 6 of them Then I let everybody that I know that I was selling single day admission hopper tickets for $50 a day. They just had to give the ticket back to me. I sold every day I had. So I received $200 for each ticket I had. So I basically got 6 $50 gift cards for free. Then I used the gift cards for payments toward my cruise. So I basically made $300. Now it took a little bit of work and managing the tickets. Also about six weeks. Also you can only deal with people you know, since you need the ticket back. I also told them that if they lost the ticket, they would have to owe me the days left on the ticket x $50. No problems what so ever. I had 24 happy people and $300 towards the cruise. WELL WORTH IT

Yes gift cards are allowed for bookings. We are actually paying for our cruise in 8K in gift cards. Our Daughter's go to Catholic School and we have to purchase at least 5K in gift cards to get reduced tuition.

For the Sam's club questions you can use a Sam's club or Walmart Gift card to buy a Disney or any other gift card.....We do this very often

I was told that the same person had to use the ticket all 4 times! I think it actually says it on the back of the card. I thought maybe you have to have a pic taken or show ID on the name on the card. We passed these up and bought an annual pass which was a mistake! I guess there's always next year, right?!?!?

Yes, it does "say that". But as of now they do not check. That is why you see so many partially used tickets on ebay.

Oh my goodness! Can 2 people use it on the same day? Probably not cuz they scan them. What if you passed it through the fence to someone else? My family is coming to visit this summer and tickets are going to be SO expensive. I've tried figuring out how the tickets from Costco could work.

I know you can buy the Costco tickets and when they are used, you can apply the value (like $150) to an annual pass (of course, I found out after we got our passes). Do you know if you can apply the value to upgrade a pass that you already have after using the 4 tickets? We have a limited pass.

I then took the $170.00 in disney Store cards to the mall to buy surprise gifts for my DS7 (to pull out while we are on the Dream) and then a couple birthday gifts for my nieces..

Well, I know it's not as good as a return, but I buy my gift cards at Kroger. For every $100 in Gift cards, I get 20 cents off a gallon of gas at a Kroger gas station, up to $1.00 off a gallon. Also, Kroger allows you to use a credit card to purchase these gift cards, so you can use a reward card and get points as well.

Since I don't have a Disney Store near me (different rant), I prefer this as it is nice to buy gas for only $2.49 when everywhere it's $3.49.

Did this for my recent trip to WDW and now doing this for DCL for next year.

So long story short, I am now the proud owner of 45 gift cards! Saved a few bucks off the cost w/ the discount upon buying and how have $450 to spend on souveniers, birthday presents, holidays, etc. Payin' off the cruise - whoo hooo!!!

While I'm excited, my travel agent is being very helpful but less than thrilled. I have been on the phone w/ her for about an hour now trying to get all my cards loaded - poor thing!

Hi,
Please clarify for me - may I use gift cards to book a cruise (for deposit)? If using to pay the balance of DCL booking, is this done with a phone call? Can it be done online, or through a travel agent? Once onboard, may the cards be used to pay off the onboard charges? How long are the cards valid, before expiring?
Thanks!

As for paying your deposit: if you are using a TA, they have to call the numbers in to Disney. If you booked thru Disney you can call the cards in or do it online.

Once on board, you can apply them to your room charges, I personally am carrying on about $4000 worth of the cards for our Alaska trip.

They are good forever, unless your state has different laws with gift cards.

My Sams doesn't accept Visa either...I figured they were all that way. The Sams gas station accepts it though. I don't know why it's this way but it's annoying. Still, it's better than when they only accepted cash and Discover card.

Can the main gift cards be used at the World of Disney Store in Downtown Disney? I know the 'bonus' $10 card won't work but wanted to find out for certain if the $100 ones could be used as payment...

Yes, the main $100 cards can be used at World of Disney in DTD.

I just bought up the last gift cards at our Sam's club for my next trip. And I'm using the $210.00 in bonus cards from those and my last two trips at the new Disney Store in Time Square over Memorial and Labor day weekends. I sure hope that they get more in. I find it easier to carry the giftcards in the park than all that cash.

Just bought my cards tonight!!! We're not staying on site, doing other Orlando stuff this trip - but we're eating at O'Hana for the 4th of July so I picked up some for that meal. Also an extra for my souvenir shopping at DTD. Yeah!!! We leave in about 3 weeks, oh my goodness!!! :banana:

I got the same deal. A $20.00 gift card when I joined but they came to my work. It was a red headed Polish girl. She was good looking to. This Sams Club must only hire good looking girls. I though it was a good deal. It was really only $20.00 to join. Not bad. I think its only the Sams Club in long beach that had this deal. :rotfl2:

My thinking was that they were left overs from a Christmas promotion. However when I was talking to the store manager last week, buying mine, he said that they had just gotten a bunch more in. He also stated that they sold really well, and that they have sold out a few times and been replenished.

I just have to vent! We went to Sam's today and found 11 of the cards. DH drove down the street to get the Sam's gcs at Wal-Mart, using our Disney Visa. Get to the checkout at Sam's, and the gcs won't ring up and they TOSS them all in the TRASH!!! They tell me that they aren't in the system, so they can't sell them. The manager I had requested is the one that threw them away.

I had $1100 in useless WM gift cards! (Definitely wasn't going to be doing business after what I had just dealt with.) I brought my family home and dropped them off. I went to another Sam's just to see. They had 13 of the packs. Once again they came up item not found. Then the cashier went and slid the card through the reader to activate it and it popped up! I was so angry.

Anyway, if anyone else has the problem of the cards not ringing up, ask the cashier to slide it through the cc reader slot. It should pick it up at that point!

I just want to say THANK YOU to those who posted about this deal!

We were able to use the cards to pay off our $4600 balance and we got $460 in Disney Store giftcards for free! This weekend, we were able to stop at the Disney Store Outlet and bought shirts and towels for our entire family for our upcoming trip and still had over $200 in Disney gift cards leftover!

Thank you for the heads up on this- you all just saved us a ton on disney clothes and provided us with a fun night of giftcard entering on the disney site- we both get a kick out of our loooooong invoice that lists all the cards now :)

Oh, and with the money we saved by the cards being a bit over $1 cheaper than $100, we see it as getting a year membership for Sams free also!

I was so happy to pay off my cruise with the cards! I had enough bonus disney store cards to purchase all sorts of stuff on disneystore.com!! PLUS I was able to use the free shipping deal. Now, I am set with goodies for use before and after our cruise! (one thing I purchased was a sweet DCL frame!) To me, it was SO worth the little bit of effort!! Keep looking for the deal guys! It is worth it. I found all that I needed a month ago. :cheer2:

In Winston-Salem, I saw them recently at the Sam's on Hanes Mall Blvd :) Do you have a Sam's near you? You might want to check there as ours had gotten low, just a few on a display with other gift cards but they had a new bundle on there. :thumbsup2

While I'm excited, my travel agent is being very helpful but less than thrilled. I have been on the phone w/ her for about an hour now trying to get all my cards loaded - poor thing!

I am somewhat confused. I have never used the GC's for my cruise. Do I have to call it in first or can I get it applied once onboard the ship? I am going to go to SAMS today and try to find some of these. Wish me luck!!! We leave on the 22nd..WHOO HOO!! :cool1:

I read through the most recent posts on this thread but not the whole thread, so forgive me if this has already been asked/answered.

If I book a Disney vacation and/or cruise and pay with my Disney Visa (so I can get the points), can I use the gift cards to pay off my Disney Visa?

I can probably just call my Disney Visa but most of the time, my DIS friends always seem to know much more.

No you can't pay off your Disney Visa with gift cards, Chase wants real cash from you.
What you can do is to purchase the gift cards with your Disney Visa (to get the reward points) and then use the gift cards to pay off your Disney vacation.

When you place an online order at disneystore.com, you can only apply 1 gift card (including the Disney Store Gift Card) and a credit card for the remaining balance. However, if you wait 20-30 minutes (order has to be partially processed), you can call the 800 number and add the remaining gift cards. Half of the time, they will either say that you can't do it, or that you don't need to do it, since the system assumes the gift card can take the entire balance. If you explain to them that the gift card is only a $10 gift gift card and you need to use additional gift cards to pay for it, they have always been able to do it, (sometime after asking for help). You can't call immediately since they won't be able to see the order #, and you need to do it before they charge your credit card, so don't wait too long.

I actually called and placed my whole order. She patiently entered all 15 of my gift cards so I wouldnt risk having your card charged when you can just call.

Post right above your's says you can't use the bonus cards to purchase gift cards at a Disney Store.

If you use a promo gift card for a purchase then most likely you will be given a merchandise credit that can only be used at the store, you will not receive a 'regular' gift card for the returned merchandise.

Posted this over on the DVC board, but just had to share again.
I just love these "gift with purchase" Disney gift cards!!!!!!



Just for the record...I am the queen of cheap tonight ;)

I had seven of these cards left from last year's gift card purchases.
I checked the price for the Dooney hipster bag for my DD...it was already on sale.
Went to Sam's today and purchased seven more gift cards to cover my spending for next week's Disney trip.
I purchased the hipster bag, along with the Dooney Sketch wristlet to go with my own larger Sketch purse, using the Park25 discount.
Over $75.00 qualifies for free shipping-remember to add the code and yes, this is a discount that you can "stack".
Added 14 of the gift cards to the order...left me with a balance of $10.25 for 2 Dooney and Bourke items!!!!! :woohoo:

The website will only let you enter one gift card and your cc information. Wait approximately one hour until the order is in the system and then call and have the additional cards manually added. The order does not actually get charged to your cc until it ships.
Happy shopping, everyone :)

My bad, I thought it was double points for Disney purchases but I asked about it in the Disney store tonight and you are correct only regular points. :( Wow, you would think Disney would give double points for Disney purchases. Most places do that for their own brand product!

My Sams still had them today. Not many, maybe 12 after the 9 I bought.

It'll finish paying off our WDW trip in January, cover our spending while we're there and we should have some leftover for our sailing on the Fantasy in June...

You could also buy these and pay for your cruise with them, essentially giving you 10% off your cruise.

By the way, if you take multiple cars to any store at one of the theme parks or the Disney store, they will combine multiple cards together. Depending on who you get on the phone, you might be able to call and do this as well, but that's not as convenient and might be easier to just enter multiple cards.

i asked the girl to combine mine at the disney store and the manager said that it isn't allowed. i wish they could combine, because it's such a pain to have to call in my order when using disneystore.com...but well worth the savings!

They can combine the regular Disney ones, I don't know about the Disney Store ones. I know they can do the others as they have done so for me.

If I would buy these gift cards with th intentions on paying off my cruise, can I use them to do that even if my cruise is booked through Dreams Unlimited?
TIA

Yes you can- It is what I did. I bought a Walmart gift card using my credit card to get miles :) then went to Sams and got 8,000 worth of gift cards. Paid for 2 trips this year with those! I sure wish I could buy more...

Kroger has quadruple points on gift cards so a $100 one is worth .40 off a gallon of gas up to 35 gallons. I purchased $250 and now have a $1.00 and an additional .10 because I used my kroger credit card. Also get double points towards $10.00 coupons off groceries. I was at my Sams and I bought the last 5 $100 w 10 card

It looks like the extra $10 card can only be used at a Disney store, not on DCL. Bummer!

would really LOVE this if the extra $10 could also be used on the cruise.

I don't need a reason to just spend $10 in the regular Disney store.

Are they good at the Disney stores in Orlando in downtown Disney?

The free $10 gift card is only good at Disney Stores (at your local mall, NOT Downtown Disney) and then online at Disneystore.com.

They are AWESOME, we bought like 60 of them to pay down our Alaska cruise...hope we can find these.

There were none at my Sam's Club in central IL last night. That's okay, as I never used the $10 Disney Store gift card that I got 18 months ago!

Unfortunately, our Sam's Club did not have any. From what I could see, it wasn't that they were out of stock, but looks like they don't even carry $100 Disney cards. Lots of $50s though.

I probably shouldn't say this for fear of them not being there anymore by the time I get there, ;) but.... I just saw a few at the Eagan Sam's club the other day. I'm trying to remember exactly where they were... they were not on their own big stand like they were a few years ago, and I don't think they were with the majority of the other gift cards - I want to say that if you enter the store, and go right, along the right side wall, past electronics and along where the mattresses are, there was a small selection of gift cards at the end of an aisle, and there were a few hanging there.

We were at the store looking at mattresses and I remember seeing them on that trip, hence thinking they are near that section of the store - it is still possible they were somewhere else, but I KNOW they are there somewhere.

ETA - the employees there RARELY know what you're talking about in relation to these cards, btw. I got the general impression that unless you happened to run across the person who stocked/shelved them, or a person who's already run into a Dis'er who actually found them, they don't really know what they are. It doesn't scream out at you that there's an extra $10, it just looks like a light blue cardboard gift card pack, with Disney characters in snow gear on it. Most employees aren't going to pay that much attention to the detail of every item in the store.

I'm planning on stopping out there after work tonight, I'll let you know if/where I find them.

Sadly all my Sam's Club had were the $50 gift cards. I only saw 2 areas for gift cards. I asked a customer service employee if there other areas for gift cards and he said those were the only two. So I then asked if there more $100 gift cards and he said they don't stock any in the back. They put everything out as it comes in. :sad2: And he wasn't aware that they had run out. :sad1: Oh well, I guess I'll have to keep checking.

So you were right...I sent my husband over there last night and they had like 30 of them. But guess what? THEY AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE OUT!!! He grabbed 10 of them and went to go up to pay and they weren't in their system (couldn't scan or be activated), they are supposed to be put out on the floor in like November :mad:. So as my husband was with the managers trying to figure it out, they were removing the display!! So no luck, I am very disappointed because I need them for October. :crazy2:

I tried skimming thru these posts to get an idea of what to do. We don't have credit cards, we don't use them anymore after having BIG BIG issues with identity theft, so if I go to Sam's and buy say...$50 gift cards and they sell them for about $48 and I need to buy $3000 worth of them to pay off my cruise I would save myself $120 just by doing that???? What happens if the price of the cruise goes down, how will they refund me or will they give me OBC? I'm not so concerned about the $10 bonus card, it would be nice but I care a little more about them selling the cards at a little bit of a cheaper price even if it is a dollar or two because that adds up when we're talking thousands of dollars. I'm paying cash for the trip anyway.

NO I appreciate your piping in on it...what are the odds that we are from the same area. Just frustrating that we couldn't buy them. They did CLAIM that for some reason Woodbury always sells the $100 ones, but I am kinda over getting them.

I work in Woodbury; I can stop on my way home and see if they have them if you want? Or is it just the $100 no bonus ones?

We got them a few years ago for a WDW vacation - paid for everything that went on our KTTW card with them - I used the $10 bonus cards to buy myself a Dooney and Bourke bag from the Disney Store online. :thumbsup2 I couldn't justify paying that much for a purse, but since it was "free".... So, I understand the appeal. I also understand the desire to avoid the frustration of running all over town for them, especially to find them just to be denied the opportunity to buy them.

If you are ever there, check...let me know. They said they do sell the $100 ones, but it makes no sense why they would sell them and others wouldn't :confused3

I got them to pay for our Alaska cruise, I think I bought like 60+ of them!! :dance3: like you I got two Dooney purses and then a bunch of sweatshirts for my husband, it was SO awesome!!

Again, thanks for letting me know, I appreciate it!! :hug:

If a refund of your cruise fare needs to be processed it would be refunded back to the original form of payment - in this case back to the gift cards. You will need to keep all the gift cards until you are completely certain that there will be no refunds processed back to the cards.
