WOW! You are all killing me with that great deal at your Giant store. I wish they would do something like that around here for me.

Yep. 20% off Disney expenses is a nice discount.

I have been doing the Giant promotion the last two weeks. I have gotten $300 worth of Disney gift cards and then free $60 ($10 a piece) worth of Giant coupons. I hope they have the promo a few more times this summer before our trip in August, as it stands now it ends today =(

I just noticed them at our BJ's today for the first time -- and I look for them every time I go so I know they've only been there a few weeks. Ours had the $50 card for $47.99 and the $25 card for $23.99. I'm happy about that!

Here, we get double fuel points for gift card purchases. The 4x fuel points ended last weekend; I sure wish that would be extended! Our max off at Kroger pumps is $2.00. AND I buy the gift cards with my Chase card, so that's 5% more through the end of the month.

I see you have twins. My BG twins will be 13 soon.

Wow! I had no idea about the Giant deal. I didn't have time to look at the sales ads earlier in the week, and glad I found out today. Guess I'm going shopping tonight!

All these great deal sound really good, but we have no Giant or BJ stores in our area. I am hoping that some of the stores in our area will have something I can take advantage of. We do have Kroger, Target and Meijer. I did not know about the Target one until to late.
Good Luck saving.

Don't fret about missing the Target gift card deal -- it was regional and probably did not include your area. You can always get the 5% discount for putting Disney gift cards on your Target credit card. I opened one specifically for that.

Thanks. For those looking for the deal, here's what I believe is the deal mentioned above.

https://www.americanexpress.com/us/c...paid-card.html

The following is in the terms and conditions.

Limit of one $10 Gift Card per new Card User named on a Card.

So, what can the cards be used for at the parks? Just merchandise? Or can they be used at restaurants, too? I haven't used gift cards at Disney before, but since I have Giant and BJs here, i might want to do these deals!,

Disney gift cards can be used for almost anything at WDW. You can pay off your resort, pay for dining (TS, CS and snacks), merchandise and anything else I just can't think of at the moment. There are a few exceptions such as carts that don't have credit card machines and a few World Showcase stores but that's about it. I doubt that you can use them anywhere in Swalphin since they're not Disney owned but maybe somebody who's actually tried or asked can confirm; I'm just guessing.

I just recently found out, that the gift cards can also be used for the parking fees at all 4 parks =) This is awesome if you are not staying onsite!!
