No more 5% discount on disney cards when you use your RED CARD

I went to get a Red Card today went to purchase my gift cards and it would not give me a 5% discount. They tried ringing me up 3 different times and then said they must of changed it. What can we do now to save on gift cards?

Did you actually swipe your card for payment? The discount doesn't get taken off until the payment processes, I have the debit red card and the discounted amount shows up on the pin pad when it asks me to confirm the amount. I got the discount yesterday.

That's what I got today and yes I put my pin in then it went to the next screen that says pay this amount and you have to press Yes or No. I didn't go pass that point because there was no deal on it.

Were you buying Disney gift cards or Target gift cards?

How many cards were you buying? If you just got your card today, you will start out with a pretty low limit - using your card will increase the amount you can buy. Maybe you didn't get it because you were buying over your card limit?

I also bought a $50 Disney card yesterday with my Target debit card. Anything is possible, I guess, but I doubt they quit allowing that overnight?

I don't have a card limit. I tried to purchase 40 cards. Then they even tried one card and no discount still. I hope there all wrong but it doesn't look that way.

If you just got your debit card today, then you do have a limit. It's not something they'll tell you about or even that most cashiers would know about. The corporate Red Card people will not approve certain transactions until after you've been using the card for a whole because they want to get a sense of your purchasing habits so they can tell between your purchases and a fraudulent transaction. It's supposed to be there "for your security".

Yeah - I'm guessing that's what happened. All Target debit cards have a limit and since you immediately tried to make a large purchase (were they $50 cards? That's $2000 - starting limits on the debit cards are around $150), they probably flagged that card immediately. Were you using your temp card or the one that came in the mail? I didn't even try to use my temporary card - the limits may even be lower on those.

I can confirm this. They are no longer listed under 'Entertainment' Cards and are something like Brinkr brand... And you don't get 5% off.. I tried Saturday.

You can pay for absolutely anything with a Target gift card except for a Visa/Amex gift card because those are technically cash.
