You can also order them to be sent vie email, which cuts out any shipping charges as well!

Thank you so much for this tip. I still have $1,300 to pay on my trip, so I just got an extra $130!

You can use the Target gift cards for Disney gift cards in store.
Do you get an extra 5% off of the $90 by using your REDcard? Also, has anyone tried making the purchase through shopathome for 5% cash back?

The 5% off does not apply to Target Gift Cards, unfortunately.

Where?!

ETA: Found it. OMG I am glad you said something. Cancelling the orders now and will re-order actual cards. Thank you so much.

Actual physical cards should be okay though, right?!

Yes, I have definitely used Target cards for Disney cards in the past.

Thank you so much for pointing that out to me. That would have sucked.

I'm not sure if I did this right or not. I see the language where it says egiftcards can only be used on line. However, in the disclaimer of the giftcard I bought it says This giftcard can be used in the store or online. I chose the mobile option of sending the card - would an egiftcard only be one that is emailed?

I just called my local store & the lady said they will scan your smart phone at the register to use mobile gift cards.

I just got off the phone with Target though, and now I'm kind of concerned. She said there is going to be a change in their computer system that could mean that you can't use Target gift cards to purchase other kinds of gift cards. I don't want to get stuck with $1,300 in gift cards I can't use. Debating canceling at least half of them. Gah.

ETA: She said we should be good until August first, and could not confirm if the change would affect Disney cards, only that she knew it would change their policy towards Visa gift cards etc.

I bought 4 e gift cards. I was then able to buy 4 more using the the ones that I just bought. I think I could keep going if I wanted too. That is so weird that you could do that. Just thought I would post if anyone wanted to try and roll the GC
