Question about using $50 GCs for Dreams Unlimited (PIF approaching)

This is a question for either DU customers or the Mods . . .

I'm on the Dreams Unlimited Travel payment website and I want to use 8 x $50 Disney gift cards to pay off my remaining balance for my cruise.

There is a highlighted notation in red saying that "Interim Balance Payments Must Exceed $100."

Well, since I have $50 gift cards none of my balance payments will exceed $100.
I've called their payment line but it's going to voicemail.

Am I "allowed" to input my 8 gift cards into the online system for payment?

Please help, thanks!!

I work with Beth at DU and the only way to make payments with $50 giftcards is to call their office. I specifically asked this question since I like to pay with gift cards so that I can get fuel points at Kroger and that is what I was told. Hope this helps.

Yes you may

Enter the first gift card as you would enter any credit card and in the notes indicate you have additional gift cards and list the information there.

It is requested that you do not submit more than 10 gift cards in any one day.

Why was I told that you could not do this?

Ron,

So, basically list the 1st gift card info in the box.

Then type out the other remaining 7 gift card numbers in the "additional comments" section below?

Just want to make sure I'm doing this right.

My PIF date is on 1/31 and I've only got today (timewise) to do this. I'm under the 10 card limit.

You are awesome, btw. Thanks.

Sorry I gave you incorrect info but that is what I was told by my agent and that is what is listed on their site.

Don't worry about it. I was really confused too and that's why I thought I'd go straight to the source here.

Glad you got it cleared up! If I had known I would have been applying alot more gift cards but since I was told "no" I have been looking for the cards that you can put between $15 and $500 on instead of the $50 cards. Thanks.

Just FYI, I did as Ron said and it was processed w/in 20 minutes and got an email confirmation already.

Thanks!

You paid with multiple $50 gift cards at the same time or individually?

I think I figured out the miscommunication with myself and my agent. I think she thought I was asking about making a payment with a $50 instead of multiple $50 giftcards and obviously they want each interim payment to be atleast $100. But either way it is good to know that if I can't find the cards that you can put up to $500 on that I can buy several $50 giftcards and enter them on their online payment form.

I paid for our cruise with $50 cards because that was all they had at Target when they had the coupon special. I just entered each one as a separate transaction even though they were below the limit and they were all processed very quickly. I did stick with the 10 per day limit, though.

Thank you for asking this question! I also have some gc I bought from Target using my 5% pharmacy rewards and 5% redcard discount. They are sitting on the ottoman because I wasn't sure how to input them into the online payment system...I kept meaning to bring to work so I could call. Now I don't have to.
