I'm pretty sure I read on this thread that if you bought a $50 reloadable AMEX gift card, you'd get a $10 card free....well, AMEX is running another deal like that $25 gc free when you buy $200 -

https://www.americanexpress.com/us/c...card/home.html

I just got my $50 card and applied it to my fall trip! Don't know if my $10 will get here in time to add to my trip, or if I'll just have to keep it for spending money

Thanks! I assume Disney takes American Express gift cards for payment on reservations?

Is there the 4.95 fee for the card like at the store?

I applied the $50 to my reservation last night...and just double checked...there was no fee for purchasing/using it. Not sure if different rules will apply to the $200 deal. Good luck!!

I don't like how much personal information you have to enter to get one of these Amex prepaid cards, it is more info than you need to enter to apply for an actual credit card!

Have any of you been in the position of having accumulated gift cards for a trip and then cancelling? Curious whether anyone has found a reliable place to sell them where you don't take too much of a hit on the cost and it's safe and stuff. I really don't want to use ebay if I can avoid it. (Please don't message me asking to buy cards -- I think that would probably violate dis. I'm just asking the question in the abstract and not offering anything.)

They don't expire, so I would just save them for the next trip.

As of August 3rd you could still use Target Gift Cards to purchase Disney Gift Cards, so looks like the aforementioned change only affected Visa cards etc.

There's a blog I read that lists the Target deals early on Fridays and matches coupons up to it. For me, they'll have Venus razors purchase and get a $5 giftcard and then kitty litter purchase and get a gift card.

I'm not sure if I can list that blogs name here??? But, it's a Totally cool Target website
