Did Target customer service say why they quit offering the 10% off online so early last night?

I don't know, but I was able to buy the foam finger gift card at 11:50 for $90. I got 3 before midnight hit, so hopefully they go through. Better than nothing.

Thanks for the GC info. I managed to get 2 $100 Target GC yesterday. I also signed up for the Red Card for the 5% on Disney GC.

Does anyone know if this will work:
1. Get 10X$50 Disney GC and go to checkout
2. Disney GC get scanned and show $500
3. Scan Red Card to get 5% making total $475
4. Use Red Card to pay for $275 of $475
5. Use Target GC to pay remaining

That would make my cost for the $500 in Disney GC $459. Will that work?

You only will get the 5% on whatever you put on the Target card

I ended up ordering 6 mobile gift cards yesterday, but I've only received 1. It will be interesting to see if I ever receive the other 5.

FYI I ordered a bunch of the mobile gift cards yesterday - 5 of them in the early afternoon, then another batch in the evening.

My first 5 were just delivered via text within the last hour or so, so it's looking like about a 24-hour delay before they are delivered. But they did arrive!

Update, just in case anyone else finds themselves in the same situation:

I ordered 20 of these gift cards yesterday. 10 have been delivered, but I got cancellation notices for the other 10. I've been on the phone with customer service for a while, and it appears that the reason that 10 were canceled is that their system apparently limits you to 10 orders at a time. (It does NOT seem to have anything to do with the $10 discount, as I initially feared).

The customer service agent is trying now to see if she can get these orders reprocessed, still keeping yesterday's discount. I'll keep you posted.

EDIT 4:12pm: The supervisor then told me that the reason the orders were cancelled WAS because they were not supposed to have a $10 discount on gift cards. If that is true, however, I find it odd that 10 of my orders were fulfilled (some were even fulfilled AFTER the other 10 were cancelled). He said that they were not allowed to do anything to reissue the orders. I've sent an email to customer service as well, to follow up, but at this point I think I may be out of luck. I am very grateful that 10 of my orders were processed successfully.

My email from CS was something like "Thanks for bringing this error to our attention. I'm sorry you weren't able to place your order and we hope you will visit target.com again"

So, they admitted it was a technical glitch, said they were sorry but didn't offer a solution.

Just an update. I received the three mobile gift cards I managed to buy from 11:50-11:59pm on Tuesday night for $270. I then took them to Target today and purchased $300 Disney gift cards. Worked fine, no problems whatsoever. Just wished I had bought more.

I don't want to get stuck with $1,300 in gift cards I can't use. Debating canceling at least half of them. Gah.

ETA: She said we should be good until August first, and could not confirm if the change would affect Disney cards, only that she knew it would change their policy towards Visa gift cards etc.
It will be interesting to see if anything different happens with the Disney gift cards. I hope not!

I am subbing to this thread in hopes another target gift card deal comes along so I can use them to buy Disney gift cards.

Every little bit counts!

Giant Eagle Fuleperks .20 cents off instead of .10 cents

I already posted a thread about this, but thought I was also pass info along on this thread also. Yesterday 8/3 Giant Eagle announced .20 cents off for every $50.00 spent on Giftcards instead of the usual .10 cents. Excellent deal. I purchased $1000 yesterday and tomorrow I will be buying another $1000 to finish paying my trip. Gives me $240.00 in free gas.
