No trouble at all and I bought $5,000 worth just a few weeks ago. It all went on one transaction and the only issue was the receipt was slow to process/print because of the volume of info. I used a Target Credit Card though. I've heard there is a limit on Debit transactions.

You cannot earn them in NJ but you can redeem them if you earn them out of state. We have family in PA so I had some of our scripts transferred to a Target in PA to fill and while I was visiting filled others to earn the rewards them used the certificate at my local Target.

A couple times I got locked out of my red card. I would pay for prescriptions and always entered the pin number in wrong. Then paid for other things in the store check out and entered the pin in wrong again. 3 times and they lock you out. LOL At least from those mistakes it help me remember the right pin number.

Thank you for the pointer. I see:

Remaining Balance:
We're sorry. Detail payment information is not available at this time. Please try again later.

Not sure why.

Also says on the front "Shop, Dine, Stay, Play" That seems fairly clear to me. I would have to nicely and calmly stand my ground.

Good Luck
Thank you. I would have been more inclined to get the debit card in order to purchase the gift cards had I been able to simply enter the cards online. But it seems that with a room-only reservation, this can't be done.

I got the same message from time to time. Monday when I called to change from QSP to DDP it was taking a while to do. I was told by the CM that they were doing some "magical enhancements" to their system. So maybe you were getting that message cus the system was running slow.

What about using a Target Gift Card to purchase the Disney Gift Cards, would that also work? I was thinking of getting an eGift Card online for 6-8% off and using. Thanks

You can use a Target gift card to pay for Disney gift cards however you won't save the 5% since that comes off on Red card purchases only. I have never found Disney gift cards available online, only in store so be sure it is a gift card that can be used in store.

I bought 75 of them at once last year to pay off our trip as well at our traveling companions trip. The only problem was that they stopped my card thinking it was fraud so I was on the phone for over an hour getting it straight before my pharmacy reward expired.

Thanks. From what I'm reading you can convert an eGift Card to a mobile gift card to use in the store. As long as that is the case, the 6-8% online egift card discount is better than the 5% using my Target Card. Every little bit helps I guess...

This made me think of a way to squeeze a couple of pennies more out as a discount. Shop at target.com through ebates when you buy your Disney gift cards and get 2% more back from ebates!!

You won't get 5% off target gift cards or using them to purchase and you can't get the Disney gift cards online at target only in store

I just saved 10% on my Disney gift cards at Target. I spent $3600 and bought 80 cards worth $4000. Paid for our whole 8 day stay this way over the phone. No problem! You can get the 10% by combining RX rewards with your red card discount. They count Disney cards differently than Target gift cards because they only come in the preloaded $50 amount.

See I don't understand why they would only let me get 43 ( needed 64). I have another pharmacy reward on its way so I can go back & get the rest I need but it was such a hassle it took me less time to enter 43 gifts cards online! Lol
