I bought 30 at once. for your 5% pharmacy reward, i don't think there will be a limit. If you are coupling your red card with it, it would be limited by your bank credit limit. I believe for most people $2000-3000 in one purchase

Posted this over in the Cruise Line forum, but I wanted to post here as well, for those not thinking to search or look over there...


Like many, I've been reading with interest regarding the invisible limits on purchases. We went in today and purchased $2000 on our Target debit card in one transaction, and there was absolutely no issue. The 5% pharmacy rewards applied, bringing the total to 1900, which the debit card took 5% off of. Transaction was approved quickly and without hassle. I think the team member was actually a bit disappointed that they didn't have to do anything interesting! Immediately afterwards, we did a separate transaction of ~$80 of random stuff -- no problem with the same Target debit card here either.

We use our Target debit card about once a month (and have been doing so for about a year and a half). Our regular transactions are between $50 and $150. Our previous max transaction had been $250.

Prior to the purchase, we had called Target, who had said that there were no transaction limits because the Target card will only authorize transactions that the bank authorizes at point of sale (just like any credit card). I realize this goes against everything that everyone else has been reporting. We also called our bank, who does not have checking account transaction limits, but does have daily limits when using THEIR debit card. The bank assured us that those transaction limits would not apply since we were NOT using the bank-issued card for the Target transaction.

Hope this helps someone!

I bought 31 there the other day. No problems. They have them at every register in my Target. Depending on when my next Rx card comes I may have to buy the balance all in one day. So that would be 63! That would be a total charge of $2822. Hopefully there's no issue. I'm a TA and 27 of the 31 I got were for my mom's trip. I had to call and it took about 25 minutes to book and payoff her trip! Totally worth the savings!

We are personally saving over $330!!!! My budget has us saving for the trip without that discount, so that will go towards spending - also being purchased gift cards at Target!

I was just at Target and asked the cashier about saving 5% on the DGCs. She didn't know and called the manager over. The manager told me it only works on iTunes cars. Now, the only reason I was asking is because I thought I had seen a thread on here where someone mentioned using their Red Card. So, I left without any cards, came home to look again on here, and she must not know about it! Anyhow, I'm going to wait for my next prescription 5% and head to a different Target and see what happens. We have a cruise and an OKW stay coming up this summer and I could really use the savings! I love my Red Card! Thanks for the tips, everyone!

The thing to remember is that both discounts (red card and pharmacy) are applied automatically after the card is swiped or coupon is scanned, so the cashiers and managers don't have to have a clue for you to get the discount.

Something I found out today, it takes 7 to 10 days to get your card from the time you sign up. So make sure to do this in advance!

Dh and I did this today. We bought 40 gc's to pay off our DVC dues, get AP's and TIW card. Tried to call to buy AP's and told only 2 cards per transaction for ticket purchases. called 2 more times just to be sure that was the story. For reservations you can use as many as you want.

They are also in the DVD/CD/Electronics section - at least at my local Targets.

Are you just calling DVC member services to buy the APs? You need to be switched to main ticketing department. There they will take multiple gift cards. I am a DVC member and did this myself in Dec. to buy a PAP with 9 $50 gift cards. If you haven't bought the APs yet try having them switch you to ticketing department.

I work at target. Not only do i save the 5% with my redcard I also get 10% more off for an employee discount. Last year we saved over 500 on our vacation. Most stores dont have more than 25 or 30 50 gift cards in the store, but they also have 25 cards up by the registers

I was able to sign up right at the register and saved the 5%. I was issued a sales slip with a temporary number that I could use while waiting for my card to come in the mail.

Like pp said you would need to call the main number. I've also heard some CMs give the wrong info or maybe they just don't want to do it. I was able to purchase my AP at my local Disney store this past weekend. They weren't sure if it was going to take all 13 cards but said they would try and it worked. Going back to get the rest of our APs and tickets next month.
