Somebody gave me some pixiedust at Target today.

I was there buying some videos for my DGD's birthday, plus a couple of Groupon gift cards and a Disney gift card. Out of the blue, someone had an extra 5% off everything card and gave it to me.

Since it's pay day, I bought a couple of extra $50 gift cards. Including sale items, I spent a total of $220 for...$150 in Disney girft cards, $25 Groupon Gift Card, the Cinderella DVD/Blu Ray Diamond combo pack, the new Tinker Bell/Fairy DVD and the new Elf on the Shelf DVD.

So, I had a great day. And it wasn't even 9 AM yet.

I think it's been mentioned in this thread, but I couldn't find it, so forgive me for asking again. Can you use the promotional Target GCs (the ones they give you for buying so many of something) toward Disney GCs?

Attempted to purchase 60 Cards today

To only have the transaction be declined at the register. Anyone with experience buying several have any tips for how to get it to work?

It worked yesterday when I bought 10 at one time so I figured I would just try more...we're running out of time to get them in small increments so I wanted to get a crapload lol

I think you may have to wait for that to clear.. It could take a few days.

There is no way a $3000 transaction is going to clear unless you regularly purchase that amount of merchandise. The system is set up to flag transactions that are outside your normal purchasing habits. And to have that high a total with only/mostly gift cards is a major red flag for a stolen card from both the store's "assets protection" team and from the credit card company. I know you said you're short on time but even buying a few cards each day would look less fraudulent (and more likely for each transaction to be approved) than buying that many at one time. I honestly wouldn't recommend much more than the 10 at a time you did before.

I got a $10 off a $75 Black Friday purchase coupon from Target for Red Card holders in the mail. Hoping it will work for Disney GC!

TotallyTarget had this one her blog for tomorrows ad:

FREE $10 Gift Card wyb (4) Entertainment Cards Shown*
*HuluPlus, Farmville 2, Applebee’s, Cracker Barrel & More $20

I wonder if the Disney cards will included? I've only seen $50 cards in my stores so they might not be.

I saw that too! I only saw $50 at my store. I swear I bought $25 awhile back, but not $20. To bad.

I'm pretty sure the $20 is just referring to the cards shown. There are quite a few different values on the entertainment cards available. I haven't yet seen the ad signs for them but I would imagine it covers all on the display (and likely the some of ones in the gaming section as that's where the FarmVille ones are located). I can report back after I go in to work tonight.

My ad says only the cards shown...

"FREE $10 Target GiftCard® when you buy FOUR of the entertainment cards shown. Quantities limited; no rain checks. Terms and conditions apply to gift cards."

Applebees, Farmville, Cracker Barrel, Spa & Wellness & Hulu are shown in my ad
