I hate that they were not more flexible. I had just opened my Red card that day and the TD bank that handles the red card would not let me charge that high of amount on my temporary card for first time use, because of this my Target let me use my bank debit and still receive both discounts. The manager rang them up in one transaction. She even gave me an additional $5 off coupon. They asked if I did needed additional cards, if there was anything else they could do, and repeatedly thank me for opening an account and apologized about the delay in my transaction. Do you have another Target near you? I would try another store.

They do sell Disney (as well as many others) gift cards at Target.com.

I bought 13 cards with no problem. Cashier even said "oh YEAH 5% off!" as I was walking toward him. Apparently he had done this before
I used my Target Redcard (Debit) and used my 5% Pharmacy Rewards pass as well for a total of about $68 saved! YAY!
Thanks for this board, I learned about this! I wouldn't have had any idea otherwise. THANK YOU!!

We just bought 39 cards last night. We didn't get the 5% from the Pharmacy on top of the registry and the Target card. It seems to have only given us the discount on about half of the cards. We need to examine the receipt better to see what exactly happened but DH was fighting with the website for an hour to get them onto the bill and didn't have time. Even if we didn't get 20% off, we're at least between 5% and 10% on our whole trip.

You can only stack the pharmacy rewards card and red card..

Thanks everyone - ventured back to target last night & bought a couple of gift cards & got my 5% off. Don't know why the office staff told me it couldn't be done. Now I can try to get some every payday til our October trip.

Gift card related:

It seems you can't use them over the phone for room only ressies, which sucks. Anyone successfully do this? I've been told you can, but then they say their gift card system is down.

Also, I'm not wanting to carry around a lot of "cash" in gift cards for part of my vacation. Can you scratch off the security code number, and have it separately , like on your phone,to redeem? This way the physical card is fairly worthless, assuming they need that security code to use the card.

Any tips from GC users would be appreciated. I'm new to the Kroger fuel points usage, and have a lot of cards for our upcoming trip.

I would call back b/c it makes no sense that they can't accept the gift cards for room only

It pretty much seemed to me that it's not that they CAN'T do it, they WON'T do it. Almost like, I'm not spending enough, so they won't do this favor for me.

I could add tickets, but then I'd lose my AP discount, which is why I bought my AP to begin with, since I live in Virginia

Are you doing the dining plan? If not then you might want to consider adding at least the Quick Service Plan. You can do an AP package with room and dining plan. You can still get the AP room discount too.

No call back if you have to ask for a manager you shouldn't have to add anything you don't need or want!

Target.com shows the Disney gift cards but it also says not available online. Has anyone actually ordered Disney gift cards online before? Thanks.
