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!
Carla

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.

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).

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

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 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.
