Welcome to Disney Gift Card Deals and More

:cool1: Woo-Hoo! Finally, right?!?! Don’t even get me started! :laughing:

This thread includes gift card deals for Disney, Universal Orlando, Restaurants and more. It will cover credit card offers, a variety of stores, warehouses and related topics. This is a huge undertaking and I would greatly appreciate any help. I will do everything I can to aid our community of savvy savers. If I’m missing any offers, discounts or pertinent information please do not hesitate to post! I’ll add these to the main posts and delete expired offers daily.

Disney Gift Card Accounts Will Not Be Available After
January 19, 2021
Due to Website Upgrades
Direct link


Consolidating your Disney Gift Cards (DGC) via disneygiftcard.com

462668
After purchasing your DGC’s it’s recommended you create an account to ensure your balance is correct and/or your DGC is activated. If you do not have time to do this right away be sure to staple your receipt to the packaging or secure in a Ziploc bag.

Fair Warning
  • Some have reported gc’s were not activated when purchased and had to go back to the store to resolve. Receipt may be required.
  • You should never combine Disney gift cards purchased from 3rd party sites with gift cards purchased from a regular store. If the gift card purchased from a 3rd party site has a chargeback (Raise.com), you could end up losing all your funds from any gift cards you combined it with. Post #64 :thumbsup2 @bbsearchlight
  • Also reported when buying gc’s through “discounted websites” Disney requested proof of purchase prior to adding funds back onto the cards. You can read more about that: here
Setting Up an Account
To get started, setup an account at DisneyGiftCard.com by clicking Login in the top left corner of the home page.
462670

When Woody asks you if you would like to login or setup a new account, click the Setup Account button.
462671

Enter your name, email address, and desired password and click the Create Account button to create your account.
462672

You’ll receive an email with a verification code. Copy and paste that into the verification page and click the Submit button.
462673


You’ll be taken to the home base for managing your Disney gift cards. This is also where you will start the next time you login.
462674

Consolidating Disney Gift Cards - For Beginners
You can only transfer the full balance of a gift card so if you have smaller gift cards intended for kids to use for souvenirs and treats, you may want to set those cards aside before you begin.

Let’s get started!

Once you have logged into the site and are at your home base, you will need to add your first card.
462675
Your card will now show up on the right side of the screen under My Cards and you can add your second card.

Transfer the balance from your second card to the first card. Delete the second card once it has a $0 balance. Repeat until your first card has a $1,000 value or you run out of gift cards.
462677
Consolidating Disney Gift Cards - Advance
When transferring gift card balances there is an easier way. Once you have added your first card, click on "manage cards" and select transfer balance. It will list your cards, but there will also be a blue button "enter card information". Click on this and you enter the card information and you can transfer to a particular card. No need to add a card, then transfer, then delete. It's a lot quicker, especially when you have multiple cards to enter! Post #47 :thumbsup2 @misssue23

Tips & Recommendations
  • Take at least one or two empty cards with you when traveling (or save the e-gift card). If you lose/misplace your primary card you can go online and transfer the remaining balance onto the empty one.
  • You can peel off the scratch off area instead of scratching it. I find it quicker and it is definitely less messy. :thumbsup2 @Brianstl
  • Keep a spreadsheet and label your gc’s. When paying for your resort and special event tickets it’s important to label your gc’s and save them after use. If you end up having to cancel your trip the monies will be put back onto the cards. Same rule applies when purchasing merchandise and returning them. If you forget your original card, Disney may give you a Disney Store Merchandise Gift Card which can only be used on merchandise. Label’s include: RESORT, SPECIAL EVENTS, SHOPPING

Cashback (CB) Portals
Discounted Gift Card Websites & Apps


Referrals and Referral Links are not allowed on the DIS.

Stacking additional offers almost sounds too good to be true but some sites do allow this and others, well, not so much. Some sites will even shut down your account. I'm hoping everyone who tries whether they succeed or fail posts their experience as Data Points (DPs) are necessary. Sites like these are considered YMMV meaning “Your Miles May Vary”. It is recommended you do NOT contact them as it may flag your account for future offers and/or flag a specific store preventing others from receiving cb.

Discounted Gift Card Websites

Too many to list!

When buying Disney Gift Cards from these sites please know there are THREE types or DGC's. Wait, what!? Yes, this has been confirmed and unfortunately you may not know which DGC you are purchasing, here is the break down:
  • General Use - Can be used for resort reservations, tickets, merchandise
  • WDW Shopping and Dining Gift Card - Self explanatory
  • Disney Store and ShopDisney.com Gift Card - Self explanatory
It's very important to read the fine print prior to purchasing. Some sites do list them separately but many do not.

Raise.com seems to be the most popular here on the DIS with regular sales of an additional 3%-10% off. Disney and Walmart seem to sell out faster than a blink of an eye so having an account and staying ready at the helm can be worth your while.

Raise DP:
  • Upon opening an account you might get $10 off or 10% off unique code which is not meant to be shared.
  • Allows You To Keep Track Of Gift Card Balances You’ve Bought From Them.
  • You may also mark Gift Cards as used.
  • The newest feature, you can now track the remaining balances of more than 150 gift card brands with the tap or click of a button. Link
Raise Slide App: Walmart Gift Cards Available For 4% Cashback (5% If Account Pre-Funded). Expiry date unknown. Posted on 8/12/20. Link
  • Raise Launches Slide App Offering 4% Cashback On Instant Gift Card Purchases - Link
  • Now On Android As Well As iOS - GC Galore
Cardpool: You can buy or exchange your unwanted gift cards for cash or Amazon.com gift cards.

Cardcash: Buy or Sell your gift cards for cash, Amazon credit, or a PayPal payment. Note: When buying gc's from CardCash they only guarantees their cards for 45 days. So be sure to use them quickly.

giftcarddeals.com recently disappointed a few DISer's with their Disney gc purchases, without reiterating you can read all about it: here on the same thread others reported success.

Other sites include ABCGiftCards, Gift Card Granny, CardHub, Monster Gift Card, GiftCardBin, Gift Card Monkey, GiftCards.com, GiftCard Zen and ebay.

Cashbackmonitor

Someone also mentioned using Gift Card Wiki to find the best deals however GC Galore posted this article "GiftCardWiki Displaying Misleading Stats, Not Showing All Market Inventory" on January 2, 2020 Link

Universal Orlando Gift Cards & Landry's Select Club Offer
:cat: is out of the bag!

Kroger sells Universal Orland Resort Gift Cards at Select Locations:

462727


466058 You can also purchase them directly from Universal Orlando.com personally, this isn't savvy shopping but then again, YMMV :thumbsup2

466057 If you drive down, Target in Florida have them. We bought a bunch last time we went. Used the red card for 5% off. Post #175 :thumbsup2 @larry47591

Moving onto Landry's, if you have not signed up for this program you are missing out. I cannot recommend this enough. This card allowed us to get a table during peak dining hours often without waiting. At Rainforest Cafe in Disney Springs during Thanksgiving week the line was out the door but we just walked in without a reservation and were seated immediately! Link

Tip! If planning a trip, be mindful of the birth date ;)

For Discounted Landry's Gift Cards check out offers available at Discount District & Warehouses
  • Kroger: Save up 20% wyb $250 when stacking with a CC offer.
  • Sam's: Offers Bubba Gump (Landry's) $90 Value Gift Cards - 3 x $25 Plus Bonus $15 Card for $74.98
  • Landry’s / Muer Seafood Restaurants: $90 Value Gift Cards - 3 x $25 Plus Bonus $15 Card

    Below is a list of stores that sell a variety of third party gift cards along with links to photos posted here on the DIS. Note, not all stores carry the same gc so YMMV. From time to time we see CC offers with 10-20% discounts that do not exclude gc purchases. Many thanks to @Teal03 for starting this collection.​

    @FoxC63 - you are doing this community a great service! THANK YOU!

    I'll help with these Chase Offers:

    Staples - 10% back - Earn 10% back on your Staples purchase, with a $6.00 back maximum (Maximize by spending $60). Expires 1/23/2020.

    Rite Aid - 10% back - Earn 10% back on your Rite Aid or RiteAid.com purchase, with a $4.00 back maximum (Maximize by spending $40). Expires 1/16/2020

    The Staples offer seems to be highly targeted. I found it on only one (DW's Chase Freedom) out of our many Chase cards. The Rite Aid offer also comes in a 5% back version, with a $2.00 back maximum. The Rite Aid offers seem to be more widely available, with the 10% offer on several of our Chase business and debit cards, and the 5% offer on many others.

    Consolidating your Disney Gift Cards (DGC) via disneygiftcard.com

    View attachment 462668
    After purchasing your DGC’s it’s recommended you create an account to ensure your balance is correct and/or your DGC is activated. If you do not have time to do this right away be sure to staple your receipt to the packaging or secure in a Ziploc bag.

    Fair Warning
    • Some have reported gc’s were not activated when purchased and had to go back to the store to resolve. Receipt may be required.
    • Also reported when buying gc’s through “discounted websites” Disney requested proof of purchase prior to adding funds back onto the cards. You can read more about that: here
    Setting Up an Account
    To get started, setup an account at DisneyGiftCard.com by clicking Login in the top left corner of the home page.
    View attachment 462670

    When Woody asks you if you would like to login or setup a new account, click the Setup Account button.
    View attachment 462671

    Enter your name, email address, and desired password and click the Create Account button to create your account.
    View attachment 462672

    You’ll receive an email with a verification code. Copy and paste that into the verification page and click the Submit button.
    View attachment 462673


    You’ll be taken to the home base for managing your Disney gift cards. This is also where you will start the next time you login.

    Consolidating Disney Gift Cards
    You can only transfer the full balance of a gift card so if you have smaller gift cards intended for kids to use for souvenirs and treats, you may want to set those cards aside before you begin.

    Let’s get started!

    Once you have logged into the site and are at your home base, you will need to add your first card.


    View attachment 462675

    Your card will now show up on the right side of the screen under My Cards and you can add your second card.

    Transfer the balance from your second card to the first card. Delete the second card once it has a $0 balance. Repeat until your first card has a $1,000 value or you run out of gift cards.
    View attachment 462677

    Tips & Recommendations
    Take at least one or two empty cards with you when traveling (or save the e-gift card). If you lose/misplace your primary card you can go online and transfer the remaining balance onto the empty one.

    Keep a spreadsheet and label your gc’s. When paying for your resort and special event tickets it’s important to label your gc’s and save them after use. If you end up having to cancel your trip the monies will be put back onto the cards. Same rule applies when purchasing merchandise and returning them. If you forget your original card, Disney may give you a Disney Store Merchandise Gift Card which can only be used on merchandise.

    Label’s include: RESORT, SPECIAL EVENTS, SHOPPING
    Would add that maxing out a card using TRANSFER BALANCE may result in an odd glitch in the confirmation popup window (a balance of $1.0 in bold green font). First timers be re-assured that once you hit the "confirm" button, your actual balance will be $1,000.

    Love this new thread @FoxC63! It takes a lot of effort to aggregate everything into the STICKIES! Thank you for all your work!
