Bring a blank check with you so that they can get your banking information to set up the debit card.

It only takes a few minutes and they will give you a temporary card that you can use right away. They will mail you the permanent card in a little over a week from then.

While I have not tried to charge more I have heard that they they impose a limit of $250 until you have established a history with them. Therefore if trying to get a lot of cards it may be best to just get the $250 and repeat once that has cleared.

I have been doing the Fuel Rewards at Jewel. Last week when you bought $100 in gift cards you got the $.05 on every $50 purchased plus $10 coupon if you buy a gas gift card. So I bought 5x$100 gift cards--got 5x$10 in coupons that can be stacked and $.50 fuel reward....hope that helps!

I checked the Costco website the other day and nothing was listed. It may not be updated or maybe they only put them out around Christmas time?

Does anyone know or has anyone tried this recently - a few months back, when some of us got the discounted Target gift cards and then used them to purchase the Disney entertainment cards, there was talk that Target was going to make a change to stop you from purchasing other gift cards while paying with Target gift cards. Does anyone know if this ever happened, or if it was just a threat/rumor?

I have the opportunity to get a Target gift card, which I'd like to turn around into a Disney gift card, if it's still possible.

Thanks!

I'll ask DH when he gets home from work today. He works at Target and will know if there has been anything implemented on this....

This is not true. The only "change" is that you can not purchase Visa or American Express cards, which I believe was never really allowed to begin with. Disney gift cards are not the same type of card as these in the Target inventory system, they are "entertainment cards", more like merchandise. You can still purchase a Disney card with a Target giftcard.

I was in Target yesterday and I couldn't even find Disney GCs. I'd sign up for a Red Card if I could save 5% on GCs.

I found an employee, who had to get someone else, who had to go to the service desk for keys. Finally, they unlocked a cabinet and stocked the peg with $50 DIsney cards! I bought a few other things, along with 2 $50 cards, and was able to get 5% off my total purchase!!
