    Just received my DVC statement for 2021 and logged into to check my balance and saw the notice screenshotted below. I have never relied on the site as a "wallet" -- I retain the physical gift cards -- but knowing how Disney IT works, you may want to log on now and record your...

    5% off Disney Gift Cards at BJ's until Labor Day

    The usual discount at BJs is 4% so the 5% discount now through Labor Day isn't any better than what you'd get at Target with their Red Card, but if you have a rewards card that gives extra bonuses on warehouse purchases, it may interest you. I'll probably get what I need for my DVC dues and...

    RCI Points Question

    My mother has two RCI contracts for a total of 26,000 points/year. She is looking for options to get out of the contracts. She's had them for around 10 years. She has 152,000 banked points supposedly. I spent about 45 minutes reading up on RCI to try to figure it out and I'm pretty sure they...

    Southwest Companion Pass Credit Card Signup Bonus

    If we were planning more travel this year, I'd almost certainly jump on this offer. 30,000 Rapid Rewards points isn't earth shaking, but a companion pass for 2019 is amazing.

    Discounted Disney and Southwest Gift Cards on

    Just noticed some sale pricing on Disney Gift Cards on Looks like these deals are available through 11/25, but sometimes cards go out of stock and become unavailable to order. Frankly I wouldn't relish the thought of loading a gazillion $25 GCs into the web account but here you go...

    Strange email from BJs re: Disney Gift Cards

    This is a legit email - the links point to the website, and I have purchased a few thousand dollars of Disney gift cards in the past. The standard pricing on is 4% on the $100 value cards, so he's offering a little better discount than that - not sure what kind of volume I'd need...

    Whenever someone asks about

    Whenever someone asks for an opinion of, just show them this update they posted this morning for July (the first weeks of the Toy Story Land opening): What is the point of the crowd calendar if it, by design, does not show the anticipated crowds?
