kind of - if you sign up for their red card (tied to your debit account or a credit card through them) then you get 5% off them every day (at least until they close the loophole, but it has existed for awhile now).

Yes!! Employees obviously get a better deal, but if you have a Target Visa or debit, you get 5% off your purchase, so buying $500 in Disney gc saves you $25. I wait until i have $500 to buy gc and i get $525 in gc for $498.75.

I don't think they well close the loophole, because there really is no loophole. They offer the 5% on anything, that includes gift cards. (obviously target ones excluded) We buy all sorts of gift cards there, restaurant, iTunes google play. They used to sell Amazon gift cards which was nice. Those did go away since Amazon is seen as a direct competitor.

That is awesome. I have a Target card and never knew that. Now I will definitely be getting some Disney gift cards. I wonder if I can use a friends employee discount with my card... Thanks for the info... BTW 63 days for us!

It is a loophole because there is no discount on GIFT cards, like the target ones ring up as, but there is for ENTERTAINMENT cards, which is what the Disney ones ring up as. Or at least that is how it was explained to me.

So, how long ago did you officially book your trip?

As of today, we are 48 days away!!!

We booked our trip on july 24th and paid it off yesterday! Yay!! I'm jealous you're so close to going, I'm at 60 days!

I think I'll get one this week (my first smart phone).

Super excited about getting the Disney World apps.
How cool! Wonder if Sprint has the same deal. Off to check.

We booked July 15, 2011. That seems like forever ago. We were supposed to go last Nov. but we got a great surprise at the beginning of the year. We were pregnant. I did not want to take a 1 month old to disney so we decided to wait. We were booked and everything.

69 days for us!!!!

Congrats! It is exciting, isn't it? We were paid off about 2 weeks ago. We booked in mid-July after hearing about the Free Dining promo.

Only 44 more days for us!!

Hair Wrapping

Does anyone know how much the hair wrapping costs now? DD has had it done the last two times that we were in the world but for the life of me I can not remember how much they cost! (Other than the fact that it was really expensive since her hair is so long!) Maybe I can talk her into cutting it before we leave!
