Yes, you can use gift cards when paying on your vacation through a travel agent.

If anyone has a Meijer near them, they have a promotion going right now (through October I believe) where you buy a $25 GC and you get $10 off a pair of jeans. They had jeans for $10 last week, so I got quite a few free pairs for my daughter. I discovered by accident that you could buy a $25 Meijer GC and then use that GC in another transaction to purchase a $25 Disney Gift card. The cashier called a manager over to make sure they could do this, and the manager told her that as long as it went through, to go ahead. So for $25 I got two free pairs of jeans and a $25 Disney card.

Would someone be able to let me know where to look for this at on the site, please?

I would call and pay but I have a lot, a lot, of gift cards.

Thanks so much!!
You can call the gift card phone number and they can condense all your gift cards into one so when you call to pay off your reservation you and the reservation agent won't go crazy!

When Kroger had their 4x fuel points on *GC, this gave us enough points for (4) 35 gal fill-ups @ $2 off. Plus we used our Discover with 1% cashback rewards. Made me a very happy camper...

*For reference, we purchased $2,000 in Disney gift cards.

If she bought them from anyplace other than the Disney store they can't do this. It would be nice, but unfortunately it can't be done.

Thanks Grandmouse! So I was reading through this and basically for target I think I understand that I have to sign up for their "rewards" then buy the gift cards at that time right? Thanks so much!

I have to go to the store to apply for the debit card or mail in an application. I'm going to the Target store, also gonna check out Meijer and Costco to see what their deals are with the Disney gift cards.
