I wonder if this could be one of those things that's related to individual states' gift card laws and not necessarily a Target specific thing? Some states have very specific laws about what's allowed to be done with gift card sales.

But the ones I have seem usually are to protect the consumer. I don't see this as anything but to increase the stores profit margin. Depending on what Target has to pay Disney I can certainly understand but would hate to lose this benefit.

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat

Wow I was able to pay for my whole trip with these cards. What state are you in? Just wondering if it is a state issue.

If Target is transitioning to no 5% discount on Disney gift cards, what's the advantage of buying Target gift cards to purchase them? I thought you don't get the 5% discount when buying Target gift cards.

Eeeek! May have to go to Target today to try this out for myself! This has been such a great deal (especially stacked with pharmacy rewards!), that I've been worried Target would change their policy...

I wonder if the Pharmacy 5% off coupon still works?

You don't, but if you get a a Target gift card as a gift or free with a promotion, that's money off your Disney card. Also for team members, we are able to use our Team Member discount only when purchasing items with a Target credit/debit card, cash, check, or Target gift card. (No regular debit/credit cards allowed)

ok I don't know if it is a state thing or what but my husband is at Target now, he just purchased a disney entertainment card (he texted me at 10:47am) and got both his employee discount and Target credit card discount worked just fine.

I got my debit card in September and immediately after I got it, I purchased my new camera, which was $300. I also did a little additional shopping. If there is a limit, I have no idea what it is, but mine definitely wasn't $150. Perhaps it varies by individual based on what your bank account looks like at the time you apply.

I've purchased $500 in Disney gift cards in a single transaction (final price of $465 after Red Card and a $10 off coupon) with no problem at all.

OK everyone I called the number for credit services today and told them what happened and they told me to go back to the store and try it again. They instructed me to call them if there were any problems. I went and purchased $500 worth with no problem Strange why today and not yesterday. I can't believe these employee's would tell me that and one was even a manager. I will have to go back a couple times because it wouldn't allow me to purchase more cards after that purchase. I wish I was near a HEB .

It's supposed to be there "for your security".
Yes you are right, they told me I didn't have a limit at the desk but they also said they don't do the 5% anymore. They were wrong on both accounts. See my other post.

I used my temp card and they were $50 cards. Read my other post about today.
