you CAN use GC on website

I just paid my trip balance of almost $3k off a few weeks ago using many, many gift cards purchased at Target. I did this on the Disney website. It was a little tricky at first, as you need to treat each transaction like you are only making one payment. Tip: Don't click where it says "Pay balance now" but rather go back into your trip balance and apply the next card. It took me a while, but I've saved a lot on this trip combining the Target Pharmacy discount with the Target Visa 5% that I have every day. I love saving $$$.

Well, sounds like I needs to get a Target Debit card and a pharmacy card.

Did anyone ever figure out if you can buy a Disney card at Target with a Target gift card?
I know you cannot do this at CVS because I called and asked them the other day. I was planning on cashing out my Viggle points for CVS cards and turning them into Disney cards.

I'm so glad I found this thread!
After reading about the Target deals, I got my husband to get a $50 Disney gift card while he was at Target and he saved $8! This news made my day.

Yes, you can use a Target giftcard to purchase a Disney giftcard.

I got mine last weekend for $47.99 at BJs and paid with a credit card. I never use cash for anything.

My husband gets a 10% off discount at Target plus he has the Target card to get an extra 5% off.

When my husband texted me earlier, he said he paid $42 (which is where I got the $8 from), so he rounded off the number. lol He just said he actually paid $42.50 for the card, so we really saved $7.50. Still great!

I'm in Mobile, Al and I cannot find the Disney cards at my Target. However, I know they had them around Christmas time last year bc I bought some for our last Feb trip. Do you think they are seasonal and you guys just have leftovers from Christmas and those that can't find them sold out? I want to start stocking up again but can't find any cards in my Target except Target cards, Amazon, and iTunes. Chickfila? I wish! Hoping they at least come back for Christmas around here!

I didn't know this until today.
Try calling again... I just paid off my room only reservation with Disney GC's last week...

The Disney cards are not considered "gift cards" in the Target system they are considered 'entertainment' cards. So that's how you get 5% off of those.

Disney gift cards are considered "entertainment" cards at Target, so they are eligible for the 5% discount.
