Disney Gift Card Deals

I thought that maybe we could start a thread where everyone can post the deals that they are finding on Disney gift cards. I have not seen any in my area, but I would love to know if there are any around. Please post where you live, the store, and what the deal is. I know the Target 5% is the big one, but I know that some grocery stores have some too.

Thanks! This should help everyone to save a little extra

There are Gift Cards threads started seemingly everyday. Search back a day or so and you'll see one at Target.

I was just trying to have one place for everyone to post so that it might make the searching a little easier for all. Plus the Target one is over now too!

Some Kroger stores currently have 4x fuel rewards. Here's an example of my savings:

Purchase $50 GC and pay with my Chase card. This gets me 200 points, good for 20 cents off gas at Kroger or Shell stations. If we fill up both cars at a time, say 25 gallons, that saves $5. Until the end of June, the Chase reward is 5x for grocery stores, so that's another $2.50. $7.50 for every $50? Hopefully, my math skills are working right today.

Why is the Target one over? I thought you just use your redcard to buy the gift card to get 5% off.

Anyone know if you get 5% off any gift card at Target?

Some targets were selling Disney cards at discount last week, sale over now. You can still get the 5% redcard discount on all gift cards.

You are correct. I figure 30 gallons for us, so we basically get $8 back in fuel discounts/rewards cash for every $50 card bought. I'll take it.

Went to Giant yesterday, didn't see any signs, so figured it was not available. Well lucky me! I found 4 $25. Disney cards, decided to try anyway. I bought 2 and the $10. coupon printed out. WOO HOO, then used coupon to buy the other 2 as well as about $15. in groceries and the coupon scanned and printed out another one for my next visit. Think I will try again today, planning to book a trip for Christmas anyway. Hope they restock it.
