How Do You Earn Disney Gift Cards?

I'm trying to find some easy ways to earn disney gift cards, besides buying them when I get a few extra bucks I have $25 already. I'll probably have another $150 in march for my bday. I do swagbucks but what are other ideas. What is that quick rewards survey thing? Does it work? Is it legit? Thanks!

I have the Disney Visa - those rewards dollars cover our food when we are at WDW.

We get the food from rewards too!

We also have the Disney Visa card and with the rewards use them for our food while on vacation! I am happy to see others do the same thing!

Whenever Target has a promotion where you can get a Target gift card for buying a "staple" (Laundry detergent, pet food, kitty litter, etc). I stock up, and save the gift cards. When I have accumulated $50 worth of Target Gift cards, I use them to buy a $50 gift card from Target.Vitamin Water 10/$10 and a Free $5 gift card if you buy 10. For $200, we got a summer's worth of drinks, and $100 in Disney Gift Cards.

If you have a disney visa they have a dvc tour promotion with a $40 disney GC - look down a few posts on this board and you will see it discussed.

I got the $40 Disney gift card from DVC as well, although I've switched from the Disney Visa to the Chase Freedom card for my normal purchases. Instead of 1% back in the form of a Disney gift card, I get more that 1% back in the form of cash/statement credit.

Plus, in April to June, you get 5% off all grocery store purchases, including Disney Gift Cards at grocery stores.

I earn my Disney Gift Cards through Sunshine Rewards. Love, love, love Sunshine Rewards!!

They have 9 daily surveys which payout anywhere from $.50 to $1.15 per survey. Now, you may not qualify for every survey every day--depends on your demographics. You just have to be patient and it will pay off. I have earned more than $2,000 since joining in April 2008. It's a slow, but steady build and I have cashed out for Disney gift cards which I've used to pay on my vacation, or have taken for extra spending money in Disney. I used my earnings on my last trip to buy one of those Disney Dooney and Bourke bags. Something I would not have otherwise purchased.

I'd also love to learn more about this! We'll be there this soon and a $40 GC could come in very handy.

Oh wait... was this the $40 GC for a phone tour and you were ineligible if you were already a DVC member?

You can't redeem swagbucks for Disney cards, but you CAN redeem SB for PayPal cash, which you can then use to buy a Disney card. Or just hang onto the cash.

I joined the Quick rewards thats often shown at the tops of the pages back in late oct/early Nov doing surveys, daily clicks,etc and already have earned $40 as of this morning. Now you can cash it in for PayPal or save up for various gift cards. They have a $25, 50.00 & maybe $100 disney cards in addition to other types of cards. Love it.

Now I am also with sunshine rewards and have done it on/off and have NEVER GOTTEN A LOUSY SURVEY to credit!!!! I guess if you shop alot on the net you might can earn stuff. I've just found it to be a waste of time. Others seem to like it though

Now if your saving over a long period of time; Mypoints is easy. Sign up and they send you email (from others) often wanting u to shop at their sites. Get pts just for reading the emails. You can shop thru them and get X Amt of pt per dollar spent. I do them throughout the year for the following years trips ( or whenever) they dont expire and you can cash in for gift cards (tons of them).

Sorry if I rambled on. Wish I knew about these yrs ago.
