    I haven't seen this mentioned in awhile so I thought I would ask and see if anyone had tried lately.

    Thanks!

    It's definitely a case of YMMV. Based on my experience with coupons and sales, I know that different Walgreen's stores within a few miles of each other will have different rules based on how lenient their managers are. I have yet to find a Walgreen's in my area that will allow you to purchase a gift card using a Walgreen's gift card. I'm just not that lucky. So, I use my mypoints rewards for other things.

    I just had a discussion with a Walgreen's chat person, and she confirmed that you CAN purchase Disney gift cards with Walgreen's gift cards (in store only, not online). Her name was Lisa (for reference if needed).

    I guess all I can do is try, the worst that could happen is they say no. ;)

    I've done it at least 5 or 6 times! Only once did the clerk need to confirm with a manager that it was allowed and how to do it. I have usually had other things to purchase at the same time and put the balance of my total on my debit card. I don't know if that makes any difference, but if it works, I will keep doing it!

    Thanks everyone, I'm going for it. I won't ask prior and I'll purchase other things along with the gift cards.

    Just a couple days ago, I used two $10 walgreens gift cards to buy a $20 PlayStation Network card. I had gotten the gift cards on black friday free with buying itunes cards. I did not ask and it was no problem at all.

    I've done it successfully several times. I usually throw in a small item like a card or pack of gum so the total is slightly more than the Disney gift card.

    Waiting for another my points walgreens redemption to arrive so I can go do it again.

    Good luck!

    I'm just waiting for my $100 in Walgreen's cards to arrive and then I'm going to do it.

    I just did it Thursday afternoon when I also used the Lindt coupons. I just have the card rang up seperately and then slide the gift card same as you do credit cards. I have not had a single problem. Just make sure that if the gift card is fr $50 you only get the Disney one for $50. I have not even given the cashier the card.

    It works at all 3 of our Walgreens. I would try it without even telling the cashier you are using a gift card.
