stupid GC question

I just got 16 Disney gift cards from Target... and loaded them into the free disney app, and somewhere along the way decided it was a lot of work, though it was nice to get the not quite 10% discount.

Does anyone know if you can ADD money (like at Target) to an existing card? Even if it still has money on it???? The ones at target all had a $50 amount, but would prefer to have a couple of cards that have around $200 each (for dining out, etc).

THANKS!

Our BiLo sells Disney cards and the full value goes towards fuel perks. It's a good way to build our fuel perks and get us check gas.

Did Target have them for 10% off? I checked the ad, but didn't see them.

As far as I know, you cannot add to the ones at Target at Target. Not sure if you can anywhere else? It isn't too bad to enter them on the full site though, that is what I have been doing.

The Target Entertainment cards weren't on sale. If you purchase them with your Target Red Card you automatically get 5% off. And if you get your prescriptions filled there and you participate in the Pharmacy Rewards Program you can earn a 5% off coupon (for every 5 refills you get). So if you use your Target Red Card and your Pharmacy Rewards coupon you save almost 10%.

Is there an annual fee for the pharmacy card? Do you save money on prescriptions with it? We have the Target red card, but get 5 prescriptions filled each month with our Walgreens card. We have lousy insurance and save money on prescriptions this way, but 5% off at Target sounds great!

No fee and prescriptions seem to cost the same as if I got them at Walmart or elsewhere. The only thing I wanted to add is if you want to switch check the pharmacy hours at your store. Because of the hours I literally can only pick up prescriptions on weekends because they are not open before I go to work and are closed before I get home.

There are 10% off entire purchase in store at Target coupons on ebay that appear to be tied to moving as they say Welcome Savings into your new home. Has anyone successfully used one of these in store and gotten the 10% off Disney gift cards? And did your Target Red Visa/debit stack for additional 5% off? -- Or, does anyone know how you get one of those coupons? They sell for a lot of $$, so I don't want to chance it as I don't have any other high value Target purchases I could use it on to make up the price if it doesn't work.

I actually came on here to post the same question. We did just move and when I changed our address with the USPS, I was emailed one of these Target 10% the entire purchase coupons!! I also have a Red card so I am wondering if it all stacks as well. The 10% movers coupon does say it excludes Gift cards but not sure if that just means the Target ones

Publix Deal

Right now in the Publix in-store purple flyer there is a coupon for $10 off a $50 AmEx gift card with a min grocery purchase of $25. Even with the $4.95 activation fee per card, that is a 10% savings on the AmEx GC.

I am going to use the AmEx GC's to buy one of the wristlet Disney GC at Food & Wine
