I would get a $20 Walmart egift Card then buy the lowest Disney one they have there.
Retailmenow has $5 cashback on a $50 Home Depot in store purchase that ends 1/31/19. Not the best deal but if you want to start saving and are on a tight budget that’s still 10%. Hopefully we get a Happy Guy deal so we can stack.
Staples $200 Visa fee free next week. I'll be using my Amex 10% off and then spending the cards at BB stacked with SB and BB rewards. Others are looking to use their Chase offers on this.
FYI it's highly advisable to not do this if you are meeting a minimum spend for a bonus on a new Amex card. Amex gets L3 data from Staples (Amex knows exactly what you purchase) so be careful, in general Amex doesn't like Visa purchases. I haven't had issues but I only do this a few times a year when a deal like this comes up, people who have had issues in the past tended to be buying a lot more than me. Also, don't count on getting points/cash back for your purchase as it's a cash like transaction, you might get points or you might not.
Can you definitely buy Disney gift cards with a hone depot gift card?
Not a Home Depot gift card, but a happy guy gift card.
So you go to the store and purchase a happyguy gift card (what in the world is that???) and then pay for it, get instant cash back and then can purchase Disney gift cards with the gappyguy one? If you spend $100 can you get $10 cash back and so on?
I don’t think HD sells Happy Guy gc
Can you add a Visa GC to to RMN get RMN cash back? I was planning on buying a Visa GC at Walgreens to get 5X UR points. After the fee, it's about 3.8x UR (I usually get $500), and then I have used those to get $100 Disney at BB using SB, but that is only 9.5% back right now. I know it's only an extra 0.5%, but can it be done?
You must me new, welcome!
You can’t buy a gift card with a gift card anywhere but at Walmart/Sam’s and possibly GameStop.
Happy Guy is a happy card which is a prepaid gift card that can only be used at the specific retailer. It is supposed to be ran as credit. They go on sale often. Happy Guy rarely goes on sale lately because it’s very popular.
You have to link your card each time you use a Retailmenot offer. You can do the offer as many times as it allows you in store but it’s limited to 10 no more than 3 per retailer online.
After you link your card and it goes to pending. The offer can be pending up to a week. So yes you can buy $100 worth of Disney gift card but you have to do 2 separate transactions of $50. You should be able to do it at least twice before it expires on 1/31. Possibly 3 or 4 times.
Edit-I also wouldn’t buy a lot unless you’re planning on churning them in a day because the policy can change any moment.
Thank you so much for your help and yes, I’m new to this thread and it’s so informative so thank you!
Slightly off topic but not really. Is anyone having trouble logging into the Disney gift card website? I've tried multiple times, multiple browsers and it keeps telling me my password or username is wrong when its definitely not. It wont even let me reset my password, it keeps saying there was a problem and to try again later. I'm trying to combine giftcards and I just want to make sure its not just me. Thanks!
I was just coming to check the thread to see if anyone else was having issues! I have the same problems.
Heads up! BJ's's flyer just came out. They will be putting gift cards on sale for up to 20% off. Disney and Hotels.com are pictured. The dates are 1/15-2/13. Online only. While supplies last.
Glad I'm not alone! Hope they fix it soon.
Edit: I'm in!! @DIS_MERI But I seem to be still having issues.
We have to have a BJ’s membership to buy gift cards?
I believe there is a $10 online membership. But probably wouldn't be worth it unless you bought tons of gift cards etc.
It doesn't mention when the deal starts on the Flyer?
Prices valid 1/15 - 2/13
Where do you get a flyer? I have an online membership and have not even gotten an email!
