Found a Deal on Disney Gift Cards!

I received my weekly HEB (Texas grocery store) circular in the mail today. Starting tomorrow (11/28, running through 12/4) there is a promo where you save $50 when you buy $300 of gift cards with in-store coupon. I don't know any other details, but you can bet I'll be there tomorrow to see if there are any limitations! Hoping it will yield a 17% savings on my DVC dues!

Cool! We have been taking advantage of a similar deal...buy $50 in GC get $10 free, so spend $500, receive $100! It is for an area shopping center, so lots of stores (Best Buy, Target, Ulta, and many, many more). So...loading up on Disney from Target, and Amazon from Best Buy + shopping in the center for the next year. Love the 17% discount on top of any sales going on. Was awesome on Black Friday!

Only Disney problem is that we like to rent points, so can only use the GC on park tickets + food.

Thanks for posting! I tossed all my flyers without reading them as usual! I need to go to HEB tomorrow anyhow so I'll try to find one.

Thanks for posting this! DH does all our grocery shopping so I never see the fliers.

Went to HEB this morning and bought 5 $300 cards for $1250! The coupon says only 1 card per purchase, but the manager let it slide because I was paying with a debit card. I'm tempted to go to a different HEB and get some more to use to pay for our park tickets!

I wonder if it is just certain HEB stores. I found my circular after I read this and I don't see it advertised

Will definitely make a trip tomorrow though to find out for sure.

It is an in-store coupon. They had the coupons at the HEB on 410 and Bandera in San Antonio. I picked up one for $300 today and will be picking up at least two more $300 cards. That will completely cover my February solo trip.

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

I just came from my North Austin HEB and saw this coupon. 16.7% off Disney is great! It's the 2nd best deal I've seen, after a 33.3% off Disney deal in December 2010.

But this is the deal I have been waiting for in anticipation of my DLR trip in January.

Four 5-day PH passes cost me exactly $900, so with three $300 Gift cards from H-E-B, they will cost me just $750. I'll likely get $600 more for meals and souvenirs for just $500, so H-E-B just handed me $250. Thanks!

Do they take the amount off first or give you cash back? Can someone explain how this works? I am thinking if I can combine this discount with the senior discount my mom would get thru disney, we may stay at PPH instead of the Sheraton!!!!

This deal is a Yellow coupon, meaning they will only charge you $250 for $300 in Gift cards (or $85 for $100 in gift cards if that is all you want). It's not a Catalina coupon that prints out for you to use on your next purchase.

WOW! Thanks for posting this. I haven't seen any Disney GCs at my local HEB but that doesn't mean they don't carry them! Going check out this deal tonight.

WooHoo!!!!!

Thanks so much for posting this information. I just got back from my HEB (south of Houston) and I purchased (4) $300 gift cards. Got $50 off of each one so I paid $1000 for $1200 worth of cards.

I immediately went out to my car and called and checked the balance on them to make sure they had processed correctly. That always makes me a little nervous.

I'm actually planning on getting probably another 4 cards as I have a short trip coming up in Jan and then a more lengthy one in May
