Target 10% off!

I just used my 5 % Target credit card coupled with the Target pharmacy 5% rewards card for a total of $5500 in Disney Gift Cards bought for about $4950! I love this and it makes the cruises a bit more reasonable.....just a bit of a pain to read out 110 cards to DCL cust service. haha

How would that work? Buy 1 and then use the $10 card toward the purchase of the next one? Do you need the coupon?

I'm sick I just bought $500 in GC today. Now I read about the coupon. Oh well, at least I used my red card and pharmacy rewards. That extra would have been nice. If we weren't leaving in the morning for FL I would go to Target tomorrow and see if they would give me the coupon deal.

Can you enter them even if a travel agent has your reservation? If so, I'd love your tips. I only have 10 to enter, but still I hate to ask her to do it after she has had to move my reservation 4 times.

Going to Target today

We already bought a bunch of gift cards, but DH said to get two more just in case, so glad it is not a fcebook only coupon (no facebook). So going to Target today to pick up last two cards. yippee and use red card to save 5%.
it adds up.

Be sure to save the gift cards. Some people have posted that DCL makes refunds back to the gift cards (cruise fare reduction, port tax reduction, even entire cruise refunds).

I did this earlier this year for our cruise, only I don't have Target Red Card. Instead, got Disney Gift Cards at local Kroger. Each one was sometimes 2x sometimes 4x Kroger Gas Points. Used my reward card to purchase them which treats any Kroger purchase as grocery so I got 2x the reward points as well!

The good thing about the Kroger gift cards (at least by me) is that not only do they sell $25 and $50 ones, but they also sell ones that you can put up to $1,500 on one card at a time! That makes it easy to pay for a cruise, etc...

Also I have a second bank account that has "perks" every so often. Spend $50 at Target get $5 back. Spend $40 at Disney Store get $5 back. Things like that, so I'm always taking advantage of those deals too!

Does this make sense? My cruise is paid in full but I am going to reserve about $200.00 in excursions whe my date opens up. Do I need to print 4 coupons and keep going back to target, or do they give you $10.00 for every $50.00 spent. Can I use the gift cards on disney.com to book the excursions? That would give me an extra $40.00 to spend on the cruise.

Can this transaction only be done in stores? Disney gift card online says in store purchase only. Also is there a limit on how many gift cards you can buy?

Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated

Can you add the 10% off you get onboard with the 5% from disney gift cards and combine them to get 15% off??!!

I bought 5 $50 Disney gift cards using 5 coupons in 5 separate transactions earning 5 $10 Target gift cards. I then used the $50 in Target gift cards to buy one more $50 Disney gift card. I also used my Target debit card for 5% off each Disney gift card. So I got 5 gift cards for around $48 each and the 6th free using the Target gift cards.

My EBTA cruise is paid off so I will just apply the $300 in Disney gift cards to my on board account.

How can you do that? And can you do it if your cruise is held by a TA?
