Does anybody know if Disney has prepaid debit cards? Would love to have one for our trip. I know about the gift cards but you can only use these at Disney, right?

Well worth the $100 I saved by buying all the gift cards at target! That $100 saved will be paying for my DD's BBB trip!
I take it that since you saved $100 on $2000, you didn't apply the extra 5% coupon you get after 4 prescription refills. (Sometimes I get so mad at myself if I forget to ask them to give me credit for one.stoast week I bought 2 fifty dollar Disney ones and only paid $90 for them. What happens if you pay fr your room online with them and then cancel the ressie? Does it go back on those cards therefore requiring you to save them?

I recently received my pharmacy rewards so I am planning to go to day and buy $2000 in gift cards. I plan on entering them online so I figure I will be typing for quite awhile.

I find it strange that some have been told they can only use 2 cards to pay. I don't understand how they can limit gift cards. I mean it is Disney tender and it says you can pay with gift cards. So if they would allow someone to pay with 2 $1000 gift cards how can they say you couldn't use 40.

Chase offers a Disney Debit card. It has some of the benefits of the Disney Visa but doesn't earn any rewards. It's a regular debit card with a Disney logo on it. You have to open a Chase checking account to get one. You can read the details about it here:

I think that it depends on who you are dealing with. DVC member services cannot use more than 2 forms of payment but member accounting (for paying your dues) can. You cannot use GCs to pay for tickets online but you can use multiple GCs to make a purchase at a ticket window. You can only enter a limited number of GCs online to make a payment on your package or room reservation but if you call CRO, they should be able to take as many as you have. It has to do with the software that each one of them uses.

I'm just so confused..........I went a few weeks back to our local Target store and was told by the Customer Service Staff that I couldn't get the 5% off when purchasing ANY vendor gift cards including Disney & charging them on my Target credit card. When you went to the store did you buy only the credit cards & make sure you were given the 5% off? I got a discounted Disney Gift Card at Sam's, but am hesitant to try Target since I can't give them back the activated card if I don't get my 5% off. TIA....

I bought other items for my household but included $800 in disney gift cards. I went thru the regular check out and the discount worked. This was about 3 weeks ago. Good luck it should work just go through the regular checkout and i always have other items to buy (that may help)

Just did it on Saturday! Their staff just doesn't know about it, apparently.

The Disney cards are considered "entertainment cards". You should definitely be able to get the 5% off. I do it all the time. You cannot get 5% off of Target gift cards though.

I generally buy mine separately, so I am sure I received my full discount ( both target red and pharmacy rewards). It also gives me a receipt only for hose which I put in my disney box

So glad I stumbled across this thread! Our local Giant Eagle is giving extra rewards on gift cards, and it had not occurred to me to buy Disney ones for our upcoming trip. Thanks DIS!

I had not realized that Target discounts also apply to gift cards. I love my Red card, but the current Giant Eagle promotion works out to 12% discount on gas.

Love my target debit card!!! I got one a month ago and I have bought hundreds of $$ worth of Disney gift cards with it! Never had any issues at all! Wish I decided to do this earlier I would have saved more!
