I bought my gift cards from Giant Eagle (grocery store) and received double fuel perks 40¢ of per gallon of gas (up to 30 gallons) for each $100 in gift cards. In addition my credit card (Amex) gives 6% cash back on grocery store purchases

I, too went to Target and purchased Disney gift cards and used my coupon as well as my Target Red Card...BUT since I also do a lot of couponing (in order to save moolah for the cruise to be feasible), I have saved the gift cards that Target gives as part of the sale/promotion every week with a select purchase. I basically got my gift cards FREE.

I just applied for this card. Right now they are offering $150 statement credit when you spend $1K in the first three months which basically pays for the first two years' annual fee. 6% off plus 5% goes to my swim team's mandatory annual contribution plus 4x fuel points (when Kroger offers it) gets me close to 20% off. If I can combine this with 10% obb + obc and something from a travel agent, I can almost afford a cruise every three years or so.

FYI, the $10 gift card for $50 purchase at Target is back on their FB site. I'm off Target this weekend.

Technically you are correct but Target counts Disney gift cards as purchases. Also make several copies of the coupon and keep going to other cashiers. They do not limit you. I did last weekend and will be doing again this weekend. There is a whole thread of people doing this on the budget board. People have done thousand of dollars this way paying for their entire cruise.

Question - can you use Disney Gift Cards for onboard credit? My cruise has already been paid for so just wondering if I could use it elsewhere.

Yes you can. Just go to Guest Services and they will apply your cards to your account. I have over $900.00 worth in $25 and $50 increments and did not have any problems.

Ok, then, I stand corrected. Good to know and maybe I'll give it a try as well.

I think it means you can't buy Target gift cards and then get the $10 off, but usually most other gift cards are okay.

We just used 5 of these about 30 minutes ago. We were planning in the car on the drive to Target how we would split up and hit different cashiers, but we ended up being rung up in electronics, and the cashier didn't even care. She offered to do it over and over for every $50 we spent. Looks like if you get a good cashier, you won't have to worry about switching cashiers.
I printed my 2 coupons, but made color copies and took 10.

Am I understanding this right, I can use the Disney gift cards to pay for expenses while on the cruise, such as in the stores, pay off gratuities, and bill at end?
