We're still celebrating our savings, what a deal!
?? I bought a $250 card and two $25 cards at the same time and got the $50 off. As long as it adds up to $300 they give the $50 off.

I could have saved another $45. Oh, well. Still a great deal.

I like Uncle Remus did those purchases in separate transactions. But yes, you are right, as long as the combination adds up to $300, you get $50 off.

I understand, but the HEB in Waco required me to buy each card individually as the coupon limited me to one card per purchase for a total of 11 purchases. And after 4 purchases of $300. cards, my CC was locked up by VISA so the HEB clerk had me call them to verify I was making those purchases so I could keep buying them, lol. Despite having to drive for quite some ways and having to call VISA in the middle of my purchases, I'm still happy with what I saved. In fact, y'all here on the Budget Board have made me a big fan, I'm gonna read here more often!

And always check H-E-B in the 6 months preceding a Disney vacation. Your odds are pretty good that something like this deal will pop up.

I got confirmation it was at all stores, the lady's name I spoke with and then gave the info to my mom. So, my mom went back to the store and spoke to the CS people, they called headquarters and then printed out the coupons. A lot of work but my mom did it. So, this time there were no signs again in her store of the promo so she went right to the CS desk and they knew about it but weren't putting the coupons out. So, they just printed them and gave her several. Not sure why some stores have the coupons everywhere around the gift cards and others don't but it should be at all stores.
I live in Beaumont. The transaction worked well for me! However, I was told I couldn't purchase the gift cards at the register. I had to go to Customer Service. Saved $50 but we have gift cards from opening up Disney credit cards. Thanks OP for posting the deal!

Well, you certainly know how to make the most of a buck with that CyberMonday deal on top of this one!

And you can bet your bottom dollar, I'll be checking HEB 6 months before every Disney trip!

I know there are multiple HEB's there and I'm not sure which one she goes to but I think she said they rang her up at CS too. I sent her back today to see if she could get more with the FB coupon added in And I sent her for Disney this time. I've got enough Amazon now!

Ah, ok. I just gave the cashier my three gift cards and told him how much I wanted then gave him the coupon. Still, a great deal.

I just got $3300 in gift cards for $2750. Bought some Disney and Southwest. My tip, souveniers and meals are paid for. Well most of my flight anyway. Didn't want to get to much on a southwest card just in case. Will pay the difference out of pocket. Sale ends today. Waiting to hear back from Niece and Nephews on what gift cards they want for Christmas may go back for a few more deals tonight. So I save $550 towards my trip. I am excited. On top of the room discount I am using. Woo Hoo

I just grabbed ten $10 Chick Fil A cards and paid $80 total for them using the two coupon method from page 4 of this thread. Nice stocking stuffers.
