Okay you have my attention now, I kept seeing these Red Card post but never read them.

So I have a couple of questions, 1. Do you prefer the Debit Card or the Charge Card? I don't know how I feel about them having my bank info, I know I'm weird. 2. It says on the rules the 5% is not valid for Target gift cards or prepaid cards, does that not mean gift cards?

Also if anyone doesn't like them chime in please.

Disney gift cards are considered entertainment, so they are eligible for the discount.

Another question can one use them at the Disney restaurants, table service and counter service?

Yes. Just call in to make your changes, and when they are ready to take your payment, put it on the gift cards.

Yes, with a few exceptions - for example, many of the restaurants at DTD which are not owned or run by Disney won't take them. All of the merchandise locations in the parks which can take credit cards can take the gift cards as well; so can the Disney shops in DTD and the resort shops.

I have had the Debit card for a few months and I LOVE it - never had a single problem..and I always save 5% on everything, including the Disney Gift Cards - in fact we are also a member of the Pharmacy rewards program. After filling 5 prescriptions they send you a 5% off shopping pass for 1 day. You CAN combine it with the 5% Red Card savings - so I will be getting 10% off my Disney Cards. Will be getting enough to cover our Dining Plan.

Another tip is to Like the Target Facebook page because they sometimes post exclusive links to coupons that you can use. And also pay attention to some products in the store that offer gift cards with purchase.
I've had times where I've printed off coupons for $10.00 off a $50.00+ purchase, used another $5.00 gift card from a previous purchase AND used my Target debit card for another 5% off. And if they only offer $10.00 off your next purchase of $50.00 or more, buy your gift cards in the Electronics dept, get your coupon, then go buy more at the front register!

Love, love, love my Target Red Card, I have had mine for 2 years and use it frequently. I have the debit card, you establish a PIN and usually in 2 days or so it is debited from my bank account. I always get my family's Rx filled there, the 5% + 5% pharmacy rewards are really cool. I have been "collecting" Disney gift cards for a while now to use on our upcoming trip.

I would imagine buying a discounted target gift card online would work as well. Not much of a difference but if you can find a $500 gift card for example at 6-8% off on say eBay, you can grab 10 $50 Disney cards in store.

I paid for my last Disney vacation with gift cards at 5% from target. I've done some of my July trip already too. They're great for dining and souvenirs too. It just takes time to pay your balance on disney's website with them since you can only do $50 at a time. I've had the red card for years (debit version) and it's wonderful. They send you coupons in the mail all the time too. I use it for groceries....ends up cheaper than walmart. I highly suggest getting one.

Just wanted to add - you CAN use more than $50 if you call - In fact if you call I don't think there is a limit to the number you can use. And unless things have changed recently, there is no way to pay your balance on the new website...you have to call anyway.

If you call into reservations, you can use more than one gift card at a time. I did about 10 in a call last fall. I use my Disney VISA to get the points, and use a 5% off coupon from Target from prescriptions. It works great. We are starting to do this for our first Disneyland trip next summer.

This may have been answered already, but how many Disney gift cards can you buy at once at Target? I could see myself accumulating the prescription discount in a few months to get the 10% off for a day, but then I would need to buy about 45 cards at once :/

I'm not sure if they limit you. I've bought as many as 14 at once, but honestly, I've never seen them have 45 stocked at once so that may be an issue. I would guess I usually see about 30 or so there on the shelf at my particular store.

I have the Target Visa and have had it for a few years. I do a lot of shopping for baby stuff, toys, shoes, household items and even groceries at Target so I like that extra 5% for all of that. The Disney card savings is an extra bonus for us! I have no idea what our interest rate is because I never carry a balance, but I know it's no annual fee. I just prefer CC over DC.
