Can I Use Walgreens Gift Cards To Purchase Disney Gift Cards?
 
I haven't seen this mentioned in awhile so I thought I would ask and see if anyone had tried lately.

Thanks!

It's definitely a case of YMMV. Based on my experience with coupons and sales, I know that different Walgreen's stores within a few miles of each other will have different rules based on how lenient their managers are. I have yet to find a Walgreen's in my area that will allow you to purchase a gift card using a Walgreen's gift card. I'm just not that lucky. So, I use my mypoints rewards for other things.

Thanks for the replies thus far!!!

My Walgreens won't let me do it either.

I just had a discussion with a Walgreen's chat person, and she confirmed that you CAN purchase Disney gift cards with Walgreen's gift cards (in store only, not online). Her name was Lisa (for reference if needed).

Called back and different operator said NO! Boy are they screwed up!

I guess all I can do is try, the worst that could happen is they say no. ;)

I did at one close to my house.
But last trip I couldn't at a different Walgreens a few miles away.

I've done it at least 5 or 6 times! Only once did the clerk need to confirm with a manager that it was allowed and how to do it. I have usually had other things to purchase at the same time and put the balance of my total on my debit card. I don't know if that makes any difference, but if it works, I will keep doing it!

I have in the past.

I have done it at least a dozen times with my MyPoints GC's for Walgreens...never had an issue and have done it at several stores. GOOD LUCK!

Thanks everyone, I'm going for it. I won't ask prior and I'll purchase other things along with the gift cards.

Just a couple days ago, I used two $10 walgreens gift cards to buy a $20 PlayStation Network card. I had gotten the gift cards on black friday free with buying itunes cards. I did not ask and it was no problem at all.
