    has anyone been successful recently purchasing a Disney Gift card @ Walgreens using a Walgreens Gift card? I did it last summer for our trip - just wondering if they are still allowing it before I cash out @ MyPoints. :)

    what would you do? get a walgreens card from mypoints,then take it to the store,and buy a disney gift card? you're allowed to do this?
    can the disney card be used at parks,etc?

    Yes. You are allowed to do this. :)
    You can use the gift card in the Parks - or you can use them to pay on your reservation (which is what I am doing).

    I'm pretty nervous because I have also saved up enough for a$50 giftcard, and I did do it once before awhile ago but that was for $25, so a lil' nervous because I actually can't stand Walgreens so would hate it if I had trouble this time......hmmm decisions

    I just did this last week and had no problems. If you are concerned, call the Walgreens and ask them before you cash out. :)

    MyPoints also has PayPal now, so you can cash out for PayPal and then buy the Disney Gift card anywhere with your PayPal debit card!

    WOW I just looked Paypal is 8,800 pts for $50
    I normally just do Kohls and right now it is only 6,950 pts for $50 I'm having sticker shock :rotfl:
    Walgreens is 7,150

    why was I thinking it was only like 5500 or 6000 pts for a $50 card??? did the pts go up?
