I asked this on another thread and hasnt had a response yet, so forgive me if you are seeing this twice.

Our trip is comming up and we decided we were going to see about getting the deal at Sams for the GCs to pay off balance and have some spending money too. (If you are not familiar with the deal, Ive heard it is buy a $100 giftcard get a $10 one free) We figured since we will get about $2000 in gift cards, the added bonus of $200 would be great and the best deal/discount we could get. (Im aware of some gas deal and not interested)
I called the 3 Sams closest to me and 2 said they didnt sell Disney gift cards and 1 said they had them but didnt have or know of any deal to get the $10 extra with $100 card.
How do I know what stores have it? Are the stores even aware? Im doing some traveling between now and WDW not to mention driving to WDW, so happy to stop along the way, I just dont want to waste time, I rather call and know they have it. Does anyone know what to ask them when calling? Are these special or specific cards?

Im from central IL and will be traveling to Branson next week, then off to Seiverville TN then to WDW, so lots of driving and possible Sams clubs in my path. If you know of any in those areas that have been doing this deal, let me know which ones too please. Thanks for any help!

Did you see a recent promotion for the Disney giftcard at Sam's club?? I know there was one during Christmas time where it came with a $10 GC for the Disney Store but I haven't seen or heard of any offers recently.

You can't use the Bonus cards at Disney, only the Disney Store.
I would call all the Sam's and ask if the $100 gift cards includes the $10 bonus card, the ones we got said bonus card included on the top of the package. I think some of the Sam's only had them at Christmas, ours still have tons left (we're in Ohio).

I know this was a Christmas promo, Ive just heard a lot of people on here, even recently still getting the cards. Im sure we could spend $200 at Disney stores on trips to branson and seiverville, no problem. Thanks for the info so far, Ill call and see if they have the ones that state on the top that the come with a bonus card. Do you know if they are in an actual package? Is it decorated like Christmas?

Thanks!

Our Sam's had them - I bought 2, not sure if I can spend much more than $50 at the Disney Store!

There are 2 Sam's Clubs in Springfield, Missouri, and I know the one on Sunshine Street has had them because I've bought some there for our next trip. They had them last week when I was there, but not 100% sure they would have them when you need them. The drive from Branson is easy and pretty short (30 minutes or so depending on where you're at).

Forgot to add that the cards cost $98.87 instead of $100!!! :)

Could you use the $10 Disney Store gift card to buy a Disney World gift card?

I've actually been wondering this for a while, as I received a Disney Store gift card as a birthday gift instead of a Disney World gift card. I'm saving for trip next summer and had requested Disney World gift cards to use towards the trip. The person who gave me the Disney Store gift card didn't realize they had purchased the wrong one and I didn't want to hurt their feelings by saying anything. If I could use it to purchase the one that I need, that would be great. Wasn't sure if it was possible or not.

Cards do get restocked, because we purchase all that Peoria had, and even asked if they had any in back, but they looked it up and didn't have any more. A couple months later, they had some more. As of 2 weeks ago, Peoria had some, Bloomington and Champaign were bought out. I don't think asking via phone tells you anything unless you ask about the specific sku # which I believe is 712598.

The deal our Sam's has is a Christmas motif card so it's apparently let over from the holidays. But they have bunches of them and still had them just last week. The card is $98 and change for a $100 GC with a $10 bonus Disney Store card. The bonus card can only be used at a Disney Store.

Thank you all for the wonderful help. Any help with a Sams one day pass? lol. Anyone know if teachers still get free Sams membership? Our BFFs are Sams members and if a store close by has them Im sure they would help out.

Thanks again!

Im answering my own question, so anyone else interested can use this. I looked online and wasnt having much luck with finding a one day pass, did a search on sams club website, while it says nothing was found, there is also a PDF link, I clicked it and got a free printable one day pass good til Jan 2012. Here is the link...

Evidently not all Sam's clubs operate the same way. I had posted last Dec. about this great deal. I bought three of the special packages, gave the grandkids the Disney Store cards in their stockings, and kept the gift cards for our trip in Feb. I decided to buy a couple just before our trip, but our Sam's didn't have any. Manager stated that it was a Christmas special, and their leftovers were sent back. To who, I don't know. I just hope they appear this year, love prepaying for food and sovenirs.:cool1:

I have a question to ask you. Did you notice the one day pass has a surcharge? That would mean you would pay nearly $110.00 for every $100 you purchase. You would be better off just buying a full membership.

Does anyone remember when these came out in 2010? Our store (Green Bay, WI) was out of them when I tried for our Jan 2011 trip and stated they would not get any back in until the holiday gift cards for 2011 appeared. We are going in Oct and would love to get a few.

Our store did not put out the winter gift cards till March of this year. Last I looked they only had a few left but in March they had probably over a thousand of them.

I picked up 7 today (wanted 10) at Sam's in Woodbury, Minnesota.

Asked the manager if they had more... She didn't think so, checked the computer and the 7 I had in my hand didn't even show in there... Said that gift cards don't show up in their inventory system with a quantity (I'd guess this has something to do with the "no value unless activated")

So, the lesson is if you call somewhere looking for them... They need to check the display/stock, as their computer does not track these in inventory.

Hi -

I was at the Woodbury Sam's yesterday and bought 2 of the cards. I think the 7 that you bought today are the last of them. We've been buying 2 a week for a few months now.

If you plan to stock up on the Disney gift cards, remember that Sam's has a policy about their membership, similar to Costco's. You can supposedly cancel your membership at any time and get a full refund of the membership dues.

FYI - my Sam's just got in a new shipment of them. Same price, same deal as at Christmas. Did anyone mention that the extra $10 card is only for at the Disney Store and you can't use it to buy park tickets, nor can you use it at the Disney Store at Downtown Disney. Still a great deal though.

I just left Sam's a few hours ago and didn't think about the gift cards. I wish the stores around here get them. I'm hoping to be able to use the $10 cards towards park tickets since the Disney Store sells them.

I tried to use the $10 ones at the disney outlet on vineland and the one at the outlet mall this month and they said no they are not owned by the Disney Store. They will however take the $100 card.

What I did was found things I needed at WOD and checked online if they were available online and then saved what was available online to come home and order those things with the $10 cards.:thumbsup2

I just bought 20 of them at the Green Bay store yesterday, and they have at least that many left. They are by the gift cards in the electronic section. If you don't see them on the front of the display look on the sides/back.

So happy because I just used my $10 bonus cards and bought a Disney Dooney&Bourke purse!! Used the 20% discount and free shipping, so my "free" purse was even cheaper. FYI if you want to order from disneystore.com with multiple gift cards you do need to call your order in. Even using 18 giftcards it went pretty quick. You also need to give a cc# just incase.

Hey, I just wanted to mention, I used gift cards to pay for a girl scout trip earlier this summer. I paid for the resort, the tickets, and meals with gift cards, then used the stack of $10 bonus cards to buy matching mouse ears and other goodies for the girls online before the trip. Our Sam's Club didn't have nearly enough cards, but the manager ordered more for us and got them to us in just a few days.

We just booked a family vacation for later in the year, so I ordered gift cards, prepaid our vacation package with the gift cards online, and bought a Dooney and Bourke bag at the Disney Store online with the bonus money (with the extra 20% off, great minds work alike!). It's tough to get a discount, but I love a loophole! Get it while it lasts!

The $10 bonus cards are a "gift with purchase" for Sam's Club members to use at the Disney Store (stores or online), which is a different company than Disney World and WDW merchandise stores. Although, the online store has some WDW stuff like t-shirts, toys, mouse ears, etc.

The $100 gift cards (you buy for $98.87, enough of these add up) can be used everywhere on Disney property or online at the D-store. (I actually got youth group tickets from another sub-company which didn't accept the cards, but got around that by having the tickets sent to "Will-Call", which had no problem accepting the gift card.) I used these to pay for a vacation package online ("gift cards" are a payment option in the online reservation system, calling them in would work just as well). We also bought these for our meals in the park, the kids used them like a debit card, they just swipe them at restaurants (they can also swipe them at any register to give you a balance).

Not a bad idea for a payment option (they never expire, so you can keep the leftovers for another time). I did some extra checking before I used these for a scout trip, I was a little nervous about the kids carrying cards for their food and souvenir money. The cards are secure, keep the Sam's receipt with the card codes and they will replace the balance on a lost card onsite.

I bought 12 and used them to pay off our trip. I did it online and it was easy. You can also call them and do it that way. They are $98.87 so you save .13 per card:) but you do get the bonus $10 per card.
The bonus cards can only be used at the Disney Store online (they do have park items).

Our Sam's had a ton of them the other day. Planning to go back with a strategy someone posted a while back.

1) Go to Walmart and buy Walmart gift cards with my Disney Visa (Sam's does not take Visa)
2) Go to Sam's & purchase Disney gift cards with Walmart gift cards.
3) Get reward dollars on Disney card purchase; get extra $$ b/c Disney gift cards are $98.87 for a $100 card; get Disney store gift cards to pre-buy t-shirts, etc.

The person that originally posted this strategy said she did have to get a manager involved at Sam's b/c the cashier didn't know how to do it, but it was worth it. I think she bought like $2k worth, so she got $20 reward dollars, $200 disney store, and $22.60 in savings on the gift cards. Not bad. Of course, this is only worth the extra reward $$ if your Walmart & Sam's are close together!! Don't want to waste gas for a few reward $$!

Or you can use your Discover Card at Sam's and get Discover card rewards..... much easier for those of us who have Walmarts fairly far away and no manager needs to get involved.

Our next trip is November, we just decided, so I will be picking up a few of these.

We had to visit a few area Sam's Clubs to get as many as we needed, but we did manage to buy enough to pay off our whole package. I used the gift cards on-line to pay off our package and it worked really well! We are using the bonus Disney Store cards to buy things for our trip like pins, autograph books, t-shirts, etc. It's nice to be able to buy a lot of that stuff before we go (and for free!!!). I'm so thankful for these boards, or I never would have known about this!!

I am not sure how many different types of discover cards there are, but i found out the the hard way that no matter how much you have spent so far in your year, warehouse purchases don't earn more than .25% on the card I have. So even though I had spent enough this year to earn 1% on everything I buy, I only got .25% ($12 instead of the $48 i was expecting on a $4800 Sam's purchase). And anything you spend at a warehouse store does not count toward you overall spending for the year to get to you whatever level you need to be out to get the 1% all the time if you aren't already there. hope that makes sense.

I would love to buy some of these but not sure our sams has them. Its about 30 mins away so dont want to waste gas to just go and look. Does anyone have the product code for sku number from the gift card pack so I can call our sams and ask if they have any? I wasnt sure they would know what I was talking about if i just ask for the disney gift card packs.... any suggestions on how to ask about them?

My Sams had 3 this morning so $30 bonus dollars at the Disney store. I am debating whether or not to go take a ride to another Sams later. I used Discover for mine and my Discover card pays 1% on everything (I've had it since the 90's, not sure if that's why????)

My final payment is due next week so no time to order, but I'll take what I can get :)

Anyone found any at Sams in NC, we are close to Charlotte or Winston Salem. I am going to call them both today and see if they have them. I wonder if they will know what I am looking for or if I just need to go and look ?? :confused3

I would love to find enough to pay ours off. Maybe they can order them for me. Has anyone had luck asking them to order them?

Yesterday I called the Sam's Club in Ypsilanti, MI and asked if they had any more of the Disney $100 GCs with the $10 Disney Store bonus. The young lady did not even bother to look. She just said they were out and that they only get them at Christmas.

I knew I had seen some when I was there last week so I decided to go in and check. Sure enough, they had some. What makes it so bad is they were on the Gift Card rack directly across from the Customer Service desk.

There were about 40 GCs left. I bought 10 :cool1: and used them today to pay off my trip balance :cool1: :cool1: :cool1: The CM was very nice and it was quick and easy to do :goodvibes

How sad that so many aren't even bothering to check and giving you incorrect information! I would've flipped out to have found 40! :) I did end up finding some at a Sam's Club about two hours away but they had enough to make it worth my drive. So thank you so much for the info as well!! It made my week!!! :)

I almost did flip out. I got the young ladies name and I was tempted to walk over to the Customer Service desk, ask for the manager and tell them what happened. But I was so happy to get the GCs I just let it go.

Glad you got your GCs!!

I just left Sam's a few hours ago and didn't think about the gift cards. I wish the stores around here get them. I'm hoping to be able to use the $10 cards towards park tickets since the Disney Store sells them.

I was in the Slidell, LA Sams on Monday and they had quite a few.

called the two sams close to us in NC and both said that they didnt carry those. Makes me wonder if they really checked or even understood what I was asking for. I still want to go there myself and check... but they are both about 30 mins away and I dont need to waste the gas. :sad2:
I checked the Sams in Winston Salem and the one in Concord in case anyone is close to either of these and has seem them there.

When I called our local Sam's about 2 weeks ago, they said they had them!! And we are not far from you, and probably on your way to Branson...I haven't been there yet, as I don't have the money to pay off my trip quite yet, but plan on going in the next week or so....as of 2 weeks ago, they said ayes!!

Does anyone know if you can use this at the disney outlet. We are going to Gurnee IL this weekend and would love to use the $10 disney store cards there.

I posted elsewhere on this thread but was not getting any takers. Sorry about the double posting..

Could you use the $10 Disney Store gift card to buy a Disney World gift card?

That would be a no. You can't use the cards to buy tickets or gift cards. They are only good on merchandise.

I tried and was told no you can not use the $10 cards at Disney stores only the $100 cards are good there. The $10 ones are only good online from Disney store online. I used mine for new silverware, a tea pot, and to preorder some movies online.

We bought these to pay our trip off. We used the gift cards to buy Rapunzel dresses and autograph books, and we still have plenty left over for some Christmas shopping!:banana:

Does Sam's gets these annually near Christmas? If so, I will do this next time too! I would've never known about them had it not been for this board. Thanks DISboards!

I had no problem using mine at a local store. It states on the back that it can be used at participating Disney Store Retail locations and DisneyStore.com. I used 13 of them in August for a purchase at Disney Store.

The Cards are valid at the Disney Store Outlets, but not the Disney Outlets. The easiest way to verify is to use the Store Locator feature on the disneystore.com If it shows up there (and is still in business), you can use the Disney Store Gift Cards. The Disney Outlet stores in Orlando will NOT show up in the Disney Store List.

We used about 25 of our bonus cards at the Gurnee outlet last month, so they do take them. We also used another 7 of them at the outlet in Michigan over the holiday weekend too. The Gurnee outlet seemed MUCH bigger than the MI one :)

I called Sams and they told me they don't sell any gift cards others than Sams gift cards until November??? :confused3

Could that be right?

I was going to join Sams for this deal, but not if they dont have them and since I am not a member I can't even go in and check. I wonder if I should see about a one day pass and then if they have them, join? Who knows.....

The Sam's Club I go to sells gift cards for restaurants and probably other things too.

The Disney Gift Cards with the $10 Disney Store Bonus Card went on sale last year around Christmas time so maybe they will get more in this year around October or November :confused3

Our Sam's Club in Kenosha, WI still has them from last year. And yes the Disney Outlet in Gurnee does take the $10 cards; I used 12 of them at that store recently. ;)

Our Sam's Club had them. First I went to WalMart and bought WalMart GC's with a rewards credit card, then I used the WalMart gcs at Sam's to get the bonus cards.

{Note to self--ALWAYS call your CC company BEFORE you go. They get a tad suspicious when you don't and it will make it a very, very long transaction. Also, doofus--remember that you do NOT have to buy WalMart gcs in $100 increments. DOH! Luckily, I had a cashier with compassion and more sense than me that politely pointed that out :lmao:}

Anyways.....I bought 50 of the GCs at Sam's and plan to send DH out again for 5-10 more. I have placed 3 orders with the online Disney store since I got the bonus cards and have yet to use one of them. I have a tendency to hoard gift cards. I will pay off the trip and have several to take with us for snacks, souvenirs, Disney dollars, tips and etc.

I know there is one by Cincinnati, but I didn't know there was another one. Hopefully someone knows where it is and will share. We are an hour and a half from just the MI border. About 2 hours from Pittsburgh. I really need to find a Disney Outlet! :love: :love:

We just purchased $3500 worth at our local Sam's Club. Paid off our trip with the gift cards and used the $350 disney store credit to purchase items we would have purchased in Disney. Also, Disney Store was having a 25% off sale for their merchandise so that was an extra bonus! Don't know if anyone mentioned this, but here's another tip.
Sam's Club does not accept the Disney Visa Card (at least ours doesn't). So we went to Wal-Mart and used the Disney Visa to purchase a $3500 Wal-Mart Gift Card. We got the credit on our Disney Visa for the $3500 in visa rewards. We then took the Wal-Mart gift card to Sam's Club and purchased the $3500 worth of Disney Gift cards. Each card came with a free $10.00 Disney Store bonus.....so we earned

$350 worth of Disney Store merchandise;

$70 worth of Disney Visa Credits.

It really is an awesome deal if you know how to work the system. :wizard:

Our Sam's has a square gift card holder with a bunch of hangers for various cards. If you see the disney card it is in a cardboard holder that will say buy $100 gift card get $10 gift card free so yeah it is pretty obvious. :thumbsup2

She had never seen them herself and didn't know they had them. So I guess I won't know "do they? or don't they?" until I drive out there.
