For the last two Decembers at least, they have had two separate 72 hour promotions, on consecutive weekends, where every $50 purchase earned you a $10 Target Gift Card.

Awesome! Is there a limit to the amount you can spend? Can you stack your red card with a 5% pharmacy coupon?

Most people, including us, reported paying $38 for each Disney Gift Card (24% off). The 5% off is taken off of the reduced amount, $40, even though you are buying a $50 Disney GC. I would assume you could stack the 5% pharmacy promotion and pay $36 for each Disney GC (28% off).

I am also waiting for Father's day deals on GC's. Last year Giant had a promo get $10 wyb $50 GC and you could use the $10 CAT on the following GC purchase. I hope they have the same deal this year.

Yep, just about anything. I even used them at some of the kiosks in the park.

I'm in the same situation--trying to maximize the use of mypoints! I don't need any more Landry's cards (which are an excellent Mypoints value). Safeway is the best for buying Disney GCs but I'm not positive that my Safeway will allow it. I know that others have said it worked for them, but I think you need to check your local stores to make sure. My Target does let you use their gc to buy a Disney gc because I've done it several times, but with mypoints I'm looking for the best point return and Safeway is better than Target. Lowe's will not let you use their gc to buy Disney gc's so I've ruled out that one, and my WalMart would let you do it but they don't carry Disney gc's, at least in my store.

Everything disney owns, I think you can even pay parking with them. You can't pay for dinner at restaurants not owned by them and I think there are a few kiosks not owned directly by disney that won't take them but for the most part they can be used everywhere.

They cannot be used at the CS - the restaurant is Landry's but the CS is actually Disney.

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
The camping trip got a little hairy

Do we know if there is a limit as to how many you can purchase?

Pharmacy Discount?

Is the pharmacy discount a one time only thing, or can you get another with 5 more prescriptions filled? Do you get the discount immediately with the fills/refills or do you have to wait for something in the mail?
I ask because we're going to WDW in June and I already have a Red Card and will need some scripts next month.

You get a new one each time you fill 5 prescriptions. They come in the mail.
