When you save on Disney gift cards, you save on your entire Disney vacation. You can use them for your Disney hotel, park tickets, food, souvenirs, and more. You can even pay Academy Travel and other authorized Disney travel agents with gift cards.
Some strategies for saving on Disney gift cards are simple, like a relaxing train ride around Magic Kingdom on the Walt Disney World Railroad. Some feel a bit more like waiting in line for Disney’s newest attraction. You know the payoff will be great, but you’re going to work for it. We want to give you three great ways to save on Disney gift cards at three different difficulty levels and let you decide which is best for you.
Strategy 1: Target REDcard
Difficulty Level: Like riding People Mover
Target sells Disney gift cards, both in-store and online. If you use your Target REDcard, you’ll get 5% off. We recommend the Debit version of the card because there’s no credit check. You just link your checking account.
Target even sells Disney egift cards online, so you can get them within hours without leaving your couch.
Strategy 2: Sam’s Club with Dosh
Difficulty Level: Making an Advanced Dining Reservation
Sam’s Club is a great place to buy Disney gift cards if you’re a member. They sell them at approximately a 4% discount. The savings app, Dosh, also gives an extra 2% cash back at Sam’s Club up to $20 earned every 24 hours. Add in a good cash back credit card and you’ll save around 8% on your Disney gift cards.
We’ve outlined all the details of this strategy in this post.
Strategy 3: Earning Swagbucks at Best Buy
Difficulty Level: Waiting in line for Flight of Passage
Best Buy sells Disney gift cards. If you purchase exactly a $100 Disney gift card, you can earn $9.50 in Swagbucks. And, you can earn between 1% and 2.5% in Best Buy Rewards. Add these together with a good rewards card and you’ll save around 12.5% on Disney gift cards.
