    I’m just wondering if anyone is having luck converting target gift cards to Disney gift card? If you are where are your locations? I’m in Massachusetts, I have 150.00 in target gift cards,

    I'm in Georgia. I can't convert them. What I do is buy my normal stuff plus one disney gift card and then it goes through fine. But I can't just buy more gift cards using a target gift card.

    Worked like a charm in self checkout.

    How do you save money doing this? Did you get the target gc discounted?

    Some people buy the Target GCs at a discount on websites like Raise. Others get theirs from rewards programs like Swagbucks.

    With the people that aren't having any luck, are you using self-checkout?

    I had a $10 Target gift card from purchasing $50 in groceries a few weeks ago. I took a $25 Disney gift card to self-checkout, applied the $10 card, paid the balance with a Target credit card. Went through without a hitch. I didn't even add another item to the purchase. Couldn't say whether it would have worked as smoothly at the regular register.

    While getting another $150 worth of Disney gift cards today, I found out another one of my Target cards is invalid. But this one came from Card Cookie. I bought like 15 cards from them and the $40 came up bad. So I am going to have to file a report with them as well.

    Editing- The $40 card from Card Cookie is just fine, I just wrote down an extra 1 in the number. So once again- my Card Cookie cards are fine!

    My credit card gets me points to earn gift cards. I charge all my monthly Bill's and gas and groceries and pay it off in full each month. I use those points to get target cards and then trade them for Disney cards. I've about paid for dining for a 2 week trip this summer using that method.

    I currently have another $150 in Target cards I need to churn when I am back up towards Chattanooga, and I think I will need to get another $75 worth for our trip in June. When I churned cards last week all I saw was $25 and $50 Disney cards, didn't see any $100 cards, but they could have had them somewhere else. I think someone mentioned somewhere that you could go to customer service and they could combine all your Target gift cards into one? I wouldn't mind doing this since I have numerous cards worth $10 and $15, but I am kinda unsure about it.
