The registry coupons are only good on the remaining items on your registry. Unless you had registered for the Disney cards and they were unfulfilled, they would not be discounted. If you rang the registry items in a transaction with non-registry items, the discount would only come off the registry portion of the total. (Target employee here )

Also, in reference to the August first Target gift card changes, that only applies to Visa and American Express gift cards, meaning you can not use Target gift card to purchase a prepaid credit card. You can still use a Redcard or Pharmacy discount on entertainment cards (which are in the system as regular merchandise), but not on Target giftcards or prepaid credit cards (which has been the case since the 5% was introduced).

Hopefully that was clear! In any case I'm very excited about this thread - I've been looking for other ways to get discounted cards than my 10%.

Now, mind you, this won't fly for everyone, but it worked out great for me!

Target had a special deal in their ad for Dial soap (bodywash was also included). If you buy (3) advertised packages for $3.99 each, they give you a $5 Target Gift Card.
Well, this is the soap we use. I normally buy it at Sams in a 20-pack.
Target's price of 10 bars for $3.99, slightly beat the price I always pay at Sams, plus I saved the 5% from using my Target CC.
So I bought 24 packs of soap for cheaper than I normally pay at Sams, plus I received (8) $5 gift cards.
I then used the gift cards to buy (6) $50 Disney gift cards and, again, used my Target CC to pay and save another 5%.
I ended up paying $247 for $300 worth of gift cards!!!!

Like I said, it works for me because I got a product I always buy at a cheaper price than normal, plus got the extra savings in gift cards on top of that!
Thought about getting more, but I think it'll be quite some time before we can use up the 240 bars of soap I ended up with!! DD said I reminded her of a mild version of an extreme couponer!!!

I purchased some gift cards today at Kroger. They are offering 4x the points until some time in September. I forget the exact date.

You earn 20¢ off per gallon of gas for every $50 in gift cards.
I bought $500 worth (to pay on an upcoming trip) and received $2 off per gallon.

This deal expires Spetember 8th. We're buying for our Christmas trip to pay for dining. Also, using the fuel points to put in our MH.

Just in case anyone else is trying to do this... the coupon and page that came with it instructs you to add stuff to your registry (wording is "You know, the stuff you didn't get, forgot to add or maybe didn't feel comfortable registering for. Add them now & they are all 10% off) before using the coupon. We did take advantage of it and it worked without issue!

I just looked and you can add Disney gift cards to a registry. I'm already married and most likely done having children (i think)... so no registries for me anymore.

Can't they have birthday registries???

I just set up a baby registery and put the gift cards and the stuf that my kids have started asking for for Christmas on it. It will serve a multitude of purposes. It will #1 of course get me a discount on the gift cards. #2 be a running list of what my kids are asking for for Christmas #3 be a list I can direct friends and family to if they ask what the kids want for Christmas. #4 I can buy the stuff my kids want for a discount! This is win win!

Okay so I made my Target registery and set an event date (supposed baby due date) of Sept 22. So when will I be given the opportunity to buy my items at a discount?

They do have wish list registries. I believe you have to set them up online, I don't remember seeing the option on the kiosks but you can look them up there and bring the printout to guest services for the scanner. I don't believe you get the coupon for these unless things have recently changed. I made one and never received a coupon.

Thanks for the tip!

As a side note on the Red Card 5% discount:
Check your receipts before leaving the store to make sure you got the full 5% off. I just spent 20 minutes with the manager teaching her math. The register only took off 2.9% for some reason. So I had to show them that they owe me the remaining 2.1% savings. Don't know if I am the only one that this has happened to. It all worked out in the end. I'm just glad I checked the math with my phone calculator before going home.

If you used a giftcard to pay for the iTunes card, you did not get 5% off that portion of your transaction. The 5% only comes off the amount that is CHARGED to the Redcard. Likewise, if your discount isn't a full 5% I'd be willing to guess you might not have charged the whole total (Could be wrong but I've never heard of this ever happening in the 2 years the discount has been active).
