Both of these scenarios are perfectly acceptable! The "no gift cards" stipulation only applies to Target gift cards and Amex/Visa cards (which are technically the same as cash). Disney gift cards and those for other restaurants and the like are called "entertainment cards" in our system and are the same as regular merchandise.

They come up every so often from the register. It's not something you normally get. Luck of the draw.

And yes, I've used $10 off $75 to buy Disney cards.

Oh, thanks. I never get coupons like that at my target.

Thanks!
Nothing at HEB right now. Last graduation (2012), they had a $15 off $100 for any gift card. This year, HEB limited it to 6 or 7 cards, and not Disney. If some Disney offer drops, it will be a thread on here. The last time HEB had a deal was the $15 off $100 or $50 off $300 deal back in November/December (which were stackable with a separate $5 off $50 Facebook Mastercard coupon), so they are due another one soon. We've seen GC coupons for Disney in December 2010 (33% off), May 2011, July 2011, May 2012 (15% off), and November/December 2012 (17-20% off).

And if HEB doesn't bring back a coupon in time for you, consider the 20-28% off at Target for $50 Disney Gift Cards that happens on two consecutive weekends each December.

I work for IBM (sponsors section of EPCOT Future World). For Disneyland, we get 5% off 2-day passes and 10% off 3-5 day tickets. For WDW, we get 12% off all tickets. It's a true 5%/10%/12% discount off the current Disney website prices, unlike some employee discounts like Beneplace, which offer 10% off, but then tack on fees and taxes to eat into the discount.

Do you know if retired IBMerss can take advantage of that? Or is it only for current employees?

IMO the advantage is buying the gift cards during a promotion or with a coupon- that way you are essentially getting a discount off....stretching out the dollar more for Disney.

That's the biggest advantage. Some people buy them for budgeting purposes, but for me, it's all about saving money.

We are the same way. We try to maximize savings and the gift cards seem to be the way to do that when they are discounted.

I think it does work for IBM retirees. I found this in a Google search:

www.ibm.com/ibm/ibmclub

I went through the process and selected IBM retiree, and got the link to the http://tickets.disney.go.com website with the 12% discount. I hope it works for you.

Thanks for the info! My Dad is a retired IBMer, so maybe next time we travel, this will come in handy.
