Ouch. That hurts. What I think I'll do is buy a candy bar along with the gift card. Maybe I wouldn't get the manager-who-doesn't-know-anything involved. I'd try it tonight..with a Reeses cup, a different cashier and hopefully a different manager.

I do have one question regarding the coupon printer. Can you install it on an iPhone? I'm limited to the home computer, and two coupons.

The thing is he didn't even ask for a manager. She just came running over as soon as DH handed the cashier his coupon!

It makes me wonder if maybe corporate send out an email or something telling the stores not to allow this? I'm really hoping it's an isolated incident and we'll see more reports of others being able to use it! If so, I'll head to the other Target tomorrow!

1) Even though you don't have a printer at home, you should have a printer profile or a way to install a printer on your home PC.

a) Go to your control panel
b) Go to Printers and Other Hardware
c) Go to View installed printers or fax printers
d) Hoping Adobe PDF is one of the :"printers:" in the folder. If it's there, make sure it is checked. (If not, try Acrobat, but I don't think that will help.)

2) Install the coupon printer on your home computer

3) Print the coupon. Instead of going to your home computer, your coupon will convert to a PDF file. Make sure you save the file to a place where you know you will remember where it is. Probably your desktop.

4) Email the PDF file to your computer at work.

5) Print at work.


This isn't a guarantee it will work. A lot depends on your "printer" setup at home. But if all works right, it should work.

Good luck.
Definitely won't work for everyone. I have a pdf printer installed at home and the coupon program tells me that I can't print to a PDF file.

I think it was a manager having a bad day. Should work fine if you go at another time.

Thank you

My DH went this morning, and was told the same thing by the cashier. He was very frustrated and bought a card anyway (WHY???). However, I had no problems at the same one last night. I called and asked to speak with a manager - who confirmed that YOU CAN use it on the entertainment cards. I am to go back later and the manager will fix it she said, after apologizing profusely. GiftCard is their branding of gcs. Disney is an Entertainment Card in their system.

That's why I suggested the candy bar. Throw the manager off-track.

I would try again at a different time. And with the manager out of sight.

I went at lunch today and bought $50 in Disney cards at 2 different cashiers and used my Red card for 5% off. However, I tried paying with at $50 Target gc I bought at Kroger earlier in the week and it wouldn't work. So now I am not sure if it's the gc or just can't be used on that promotion.

Weird. You can use a Target gift card as payment for the Disney entertainment card (I used one I had previously purchased at Target for my first purchase and then used the free $10 one for my second entertainment card).

Yikes - sorry that happened to you guys! I've read this a ton of times and my DH has been coached - they (Disney gift cards) aren't gift cards they are entertainment cards as we know but gosh for that to happen to you guys and not even try the coupon - geez! I hope it gets better for you and I agree with others, seems like you had a manager who had a rough day

Your best bet is to give it a shot (don't ask a team member they usually are misinformed lol)...the worst that can happen is the cash register will beep and wont accept the coupon, just say no thanks if the coupon doesn't work.
I don't Facebook, and can't install the coupon printer at work, so I guess I'll miss out on that savings - but I wanted to let you know I'll be going by the Athens Target this afternoon to get my Disney gift cards to finish paying for my trip this weekend!

I will use my red debit card to get 5% off, so that's better than no savings at all I suppose!
