Discounted Gift Cards at Sams Club

Today while I was going some last minute shopping for Thanksgiving at Sams Club, I decided to check out the gift card stand and noticed they had Disney Gift Cards - they come in a three pack of $50 each for a total value of $150 for $142.98 (4.68% discount). Not a ton - but since I am leaving in a few days and know about what I plan on spending, every little bit helps! We are upgrading our 6 day MYW tickets to an annual pass, getting TIW, getting a spa treatment and any dining/shopping, I got $900 worth of cards for myself so a savings of $42. My mom who is traveling with me did the same - so a total of $84. A $4000 family vacation would add up - $187.

I think it varies from region to region - they're 7% off face value here, available in individual $25 and $50 cards. If you're going to be dropping $1,000 on your vacation, that $70 savings can be better spent on bread cones and angus pizza burgers.

Brandi - I'm going to do the same. I need some additional cold weather training gear for WDW Marathon Weekend anyway, and the C9 stuff is pretty good. Hopefully there are no problems using the 20% coupon on the Disney gift cards, but no loss either way I suppose.

Will work for Dole Whips.
I'm going for the 20% off at Target, too. I'm hoping that I'll qualify with an online order.

Online counts, but has to be Friday (even though many Black Friday items are available now).

I went to Target website looking for details of this 20% but could not find it right off, anyone mind sharing the details?

It's in the Target Black Friday ad. Full page, toward the back.

How about this for the ultimate savings opportunity:

Step 1: Buy $1000 of Target Gift Cards for $900 on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=251374790902)
Step 2: Use the Target 20% off coupon to buy $1250 of Disney Gift Cards for $1000

$1250 of Disney Gift Cards for $900. IT'S LIKE THEY'RE PAYING YOU TO GO!!! EXCEPT FOR THE $900 YOU SPENT!!!

Not sure if the Target Gift Cards would come by next week though... or if the Disney Gift Cards will be allowable under the 20% coupon. Other than that, though, my plan is poifect!

It's ok. Target considers Disney gift cards, like other gift cards besides Target gift cards, entertainment cards. I'm planning to be at my store bright and early on Sunday morning for my Disney gift cards. :RpS_smile:

I wonder if Target sells Southwest gift cards and if they'd qualify too... I agree getting there right when they open on Sunday will probably give you the best chance over the other people in your town who are up to the same thing...

I think they consider Southwest cards as entertainment cards also. My SIL is a Target employee and she got us a few Southwest cards and was able to use her discount. She doesn't get a discount on Target gift cards. I'll feel very happy if all goes according to plan Sunday morning!

Who's planning to rope drop their Target on Sunday? Haha!

Target does sell SW cards but you can only use 4 forms of payment for SW and the cards target sells are $50, just keep that in mind

I hope this is true. I was a little discouraged by the fact that iTunes cards (also entertainment cards) are excluded.

I can confirm that they treat the Disney Gift Cards as "Entertainment Cards" which are not excluded. We have purchased many Disney Gift Cards using the Pharmacy Rewards 5% back, and it also excludes "Gift Cards".

I am planning to do the same at target...I even asked someone that worked there and they seem to think it should work.

I tried to ask at Target today and the woman wasn't exactly sure, so she gave me a 20% coupon "for my troubles," without my having to spend the $75.

SCORE!!!
