We were a test market several years ago. They still do it here but I'm not sure it's ever expanded outside of this area.

I Googled it earlier and it said Waco HEB. At least I know I'm not missing out on something!

This deal is an in-store promo with our local grocery. I know they don't sell on-line.

$1500 worth of gift cards for $1250. That is really an awesome deal...a quick $250 off our cruise!
Just make sure to always check H-E-B in the months preceding a Disney vacation. They regularly have 15% or more discounts on gift cards, including Disney. December 2010, April 2012, July 2012, November/December 2012, to name a few. Walking past the gift card kiosk has become as essential as walking to the milk on my grocery store visits. I can almost count on it as far as my Disney budgeting.

I've asked managers before, and they've said they can print out new Yellow coupons.

One thing that made me nervous is the coupon listed the excluded ones like Visa Gift Cards, but it also said theme parks! But the coupon worked for all of my Disney gift cards. Do you think the exclusion was referring to the Disney cards???

This was the first time I took advantage of it, and I figured it may be the last when I saw that.

Did it say that on anyone else's???

The Disney exclusion is for the theme park cards which give you like 3 days at DL for $199 or something like that. The regular Disney cards are considered 'entertainment cards'.

Are these stores only in Texas?


I posted on another thread today. Iwent to get a Red Card at Target and rang up my Disney gift cards expecting to get a 5% discount and it didn't give it to me. They tried 3 times and then said they think it was changed. Anyone else know about that?

Is there any other discount I can get?

Yes, HEB's are only in TX and a few in Mexico.

I haven't bought a Disney gift card at Target in awhile. But that will stink if that policy has changed.

The only other discount I know of is the fuel rewards through Kroger chains or Safeway. Not sure where you live and if you have either of those stores. They are both giving 4x fuel rewards on gift cards right now.

You should have saved $450, right? 9 $300 Gift Cards times $50 per card equals $450.
