discount on annual dues

Hi guys,

i have noticed on some posts that some dvc members are saying they have been able to get a 5% discount on their annual dues by pre-paying?

Does anybody know how this works?

thanks for all your help

Andy

What they are doing is purchasing Disney Gift Cards at Target using a Target Red Card which saves them 5% off the purchase. They then use the Disney Gift Card to pay their Annual Dues.

And if you fill your prescriptions at Target, after 5 they send you another 5% coupon. It isn't quite 10% (as my daughter says - math!), and its a pain in the back end, but it can be done.

Grocery Store Fuelperks are another great way to save. I buy giftcards to cover the dues when they off double fuel perks. So for every 100, I get 12.00 in free gas plus I get the 2% on my Disney Visa. So you can save if you plan and have the options open to you.

Sorry to be dense but could you please explain the process at Target or using the Disney Visa for these additional benefits. I assume that Disney Visa points come into play but the additional information would be appreciated.

When you purchase Disney Gift Cards at Target using a Target Red Card, you save 5% off the purchase price. A $50 gift card would actually cost $47.50 when using a Target Red Card.

Can't help you with Target but if you pay your dues with a Disney Visa you will get 1% rewards with the regular card and 2% with the Premier Card.

We don't use our Disney Visa card to pay for our annual dues but you can use what you have in rewards toward your annual dues. We used to use our rewards to use toward park passes but once we learned it can be used towards annual dues, that's what we've been doing.

We use our Disney Visa to buy Disney gift cards at Kroger when they do 4x the fuel points. For a $25 disney gift card we then get 100 pts which is .10 off per gallon of gas. They will let you use up to $1 off per gallon. (A few times its been extended to $2 off per gallon.) We get our pts with our Visa and money off gas for our vehicles.

So with this whole idea, you can 'save' 5% off of the whole trip?

Just buy gift cards at target using the red card, then pay for everything on a trip with them?

With a long trip I easily spend a few K...

Yep. One issue is you will have a lot of gift cards. Target does not sell variable load Disney Gift Cards, they will all be for a set amount ($50).

interesting...I do not know if I will do it for the trip...but I might utilize it to a degree.

Then you just call MS with the gift cards numbers as far as the dues go?

We just got back from a long weekend. We estimated our food bill for the family and bought 500$ in gift cards for our meals. It worked out just about right. In essence counting our TIW and Target discounts we saved 25% on our food bill.

To pay your dues, you would call Member Accounting.
