Thank you. I will check every few days and see if target.com has the Disney gift cards in stock.

Any tips from GC users would be appreciated. I'm new to the Kroger fuel points usage, and have a lot of cards for our upcoming trip.

Call back. I had one person that didn't want to type in my BJ's giftcards back in 2011 but when I called back the next person said it was no problem. I've also done multiples on the online system, but that system might have been updated/changed since then.

If you have to call in a FEW and then a few more. Break it up. It's money... they'll take it. HA.

We left part of our giftcards in the room and only took what we figured we needed for the day. Others have had them loaded to their KTTW and used the charging to access their giftcard. Another person on the board has charged to their room, then gone to the desk every so often to "pay off" with their giftcards.

Here is a variant on the Target purchase question. Has anyone tried buying them online from target.com using a Capital One credit card and the Target 4 bonus miles option? This would yield a 6% savings (if you have a Venture card) instead of 5%. Capital One says the bonus miles do not apply to gift card purchases, but so does the Red Card.

Actually The Disney Gift Cards are considered entertainment cards but you won't get anything off Target gift cards..

Just a quick follow-up on my earlier post. You can in fact achieve some additional savings using a Capital One credit card that usually earns 2 miles on every purchase. If you go thru the Capital One Rewards site and click on Target.com you can purchase Disney gift cards that earn 6 points per dollar. You'll pay shipping costs of $1.95 per order of ten cards (max per single order). If you apply the miles towards the cost of the cards, the net cost for $500 of Disney gift cards is $471.95 which is $3.05 cheaper than using a Target Red Card.

I can't do it either. Maybe it depends where you live?

So you're the one who keeps running the website out of cards
Just Kidding.


I am ordering on line also, I have had NO issues ordering, receiving them, or using them to pay on my Disney resort reservation. I have "3" room only reservations and am able to pay by credit card via the phone system.

Rastuso - keep trying, try a different CM, they do take them

Oh, I never thought of ordering them online! Do cashback sites like ebates work with the online gift cards?

Well, I just got shot down again. Again, it was because it was room only, so it is treated as a deposit, which must be by credit card. She wanted an expiration date. I'll double check at home, but I'm pretty sure there are no expiration dates on GCs. That's illegal now.

This must be a policy change, or they are playing hardball with me. They always say I can pay at checkin. Which just ticks me off. I don't want to carry around all this cash. I'm thinking now I'll cut the cards up, keeping the magnetic stripe intact, and keep the parts separate. I'll have all the numbers elsewhere too. The physical cards are meaningless. They all make it clear if I was doing a vacation package I could use them no problem. So, it really seems they simply don't want me to have the luxury of giving the numbers online because I'm not spending enough money.

I was able to key in a ton of GC's through the phone system for my room only res this past Feb. I have also had CM's take them over the phone for room only res. Someone is giving you the wrong information. Good luck!!!

So you can manually key in gift card numbers through an automated system?

Because online, I get errors too. It can't find my reservation number because it is room only, I've been told.

Somewhere in the prompts on the automated system is "make a payment". It took my GC's no problem and gave me my new balance after each card. Now I had to go back to the start of the menu each time, but never had to hang up. Took a while but I didn't mind since I was not holding up a CM.
