I just went over lunch and bought $1500 in Disney Gift Cards for $1250. $300 per transaction, 5 total transactions. Very pleased with the purchase. You can get the gift cards in any denomination. On some tranactions I bought $300 cards for $250. On other transactions I bought three $100 cards for $250 total, etc. Always $300 total gift cards for $250. Now off the buy theme park tickets.

** WARNING **

The H-E-B I went to today at lunch was out of the Yellow coupons. Luckily, I had grabbed 5 coupons last night while shopping (when they had at least 100 still on the hook), knowing I was going to go home and figure out which credit card I was going to use and then come back and use the coupons (I ended up using my Disney Visa for an extra 1% is Disney Cash making the total discount here 17.7%).

But the point is ... don't wait. Even though these coupons are good from 11/28 to 12/04, they may run out today, like they did at my H-E-B. I am not sure if you can go to customer service and ask if they can print you off a couple. I'm so glad I pocketed the coupons last night. Although I bet other H-E-Bs in my area still have them.

So...loading up on Disney from Target, and Amazon from Best Buy + shopping in the center for the next year. Love the 17% discount on top of any sales going on. Was awesome on Black Friday!

Only Disney problem is that we like to rent points, so can only use the GC on park tickets + food.
Based on your screen name you and I must live very close to each other and I too bought gift cards there - to use at Best Buy and Target..never thought about buying the Disney gift cards with them!!

Thanks for the idea!!

My HEB told me that they have a limit of $1000 per day on this deal. . I hope they still have the coupons. The person that I spoke to acted like it was part of the sales ad, and that I did not need a coupon????

The inlaws just picked up a bunch of Disney GC for us and for them. I have a stack of $50 cards from Target from when I had a rx promotion, but these are way better--not only is the discount better, but one $300 card is just easier to deal with than 6 $50 cards.

I asked MIL what other kinds of cards they carry. She said mostly restaurant ones, but also Best Buy and Amazon. She said she didn't think the HEB she went to had either Target or Toys R Us cards.

Does anyone know if any HEB stores (around San Antonio) carry either Target or Toys R Us cards?

And also, thanks to those who posted about this deal!

I haven't seen tru or target cards but I have bought southwest, amazon, and several different eateries. They also have retail stores like old navy, Gymboree, the children's place, etc.

I've bought over $2k in gift cards. With HEB rewards, 6 Hilton points/$ on my credit card, and the coupon, I'm definitely making the most of this promo!

I'm just back from HEB and the same at mine. No TRU, Target, etc.. I was considering Amazon but I might spend $300 there in a year so not sure I want to tie up that much. I bought another $300 for Disney then $250 for Disney and $50 for Joe's Crab Shack. My husband loves that place and I was considering a GC for there anyhow so now I can look at it as a "free" $50 GC. They have lots of restaurants.
I should now have enough to cover my hotel and all food for my February trip and maybe a little left over for souvenirs!
Oh, and there were only a few coupons left today. I looked at the front of the store where the rack will all the store coupons is and I did not see any. The deal is good until the 4th. Does HEB put out more for this kind of thing or when the coupons are gone the deal is gone?

ETA, I have never heard of HEB rewards. Is that only for some HEBs? I have lived here for a year and used to live in San Angelo more or less only shop at HEB.
