$150 disney gift card discount

Paying for all (or part) of your Disney World vacation with discount Disney gift cards is an easy way to save money.

You can use Disney gift cards to pay for:

  • A Disney vacation package
  • Disney resort hotel stays
  • Disney theme park tickets
  • Food and drinks at Disney World and Disneyland
  • Disney Cruises
  • Merchandise and more…

It is easy to save hundreds of dollars by paying for all of this with cheap Disney gift cards!

There are many places that sell discount Disney gift cards and they each have pros and cons.

In this post, I’ll share the top three places to get a Disney gift cards discount and my pick for the easiest to use. 

Where Can I Get a Disney Gift Card Discount?

You can buy discount Disney gift cards at many locations both online and in a store, such as:

.Other places may also offer discounts, but anything less than 4-5% is NOT a good deal. 

Here’s how to get cheap Disney gift cards at my top three best picks. 

1) BJ’s Wholesale

BJ’s Wholesale is my first choice for Disney gift card deals because you don’t have to have a specific credit card or expensive membership to get discount Disney gift cards.

You now have to be a member to buy discount Disney gift cards at BJ’s but fear not! BJ’s offers a cheap $10 per year option that is perfect for getting discount Disney gift cards at BJ’s. I have this membership just for this purpose.

Right now the best deal is the$100 Disney gift card that costs $95.99. This is a 4% savings and the other gift card options at BJ’s offer less than 4% off.

I like that you can pay for these discount Disney gift cards with any form of payment and that you can get instant access to these prices with an affordable $10/year membership.

If you purchase these gift cards with a credit card that earns rewards or cash-back, you can save WAY more. Read about how you can use a cash back credit card to save up to 14% on Disney gift cards in this post.

You can combine the amount from multiple gift cards on the Disney Gift Card site here, making them much easier to manage when you are in the parks.

BJ’s Disney Gift Card Discount Pros & Cons:

Pros: instant access, can pay with any method

Cons: only save 4%, have to pay $10 annual membership fee

2) Target

While Target doesn’t sell discount Disney gift cards per se, you can use a Target REDcard to save 5% on Disney gift cards.

A REDcard saves you 5% off of all your Target purchases, even gift cards. I especially like that there is a REDcard Debit card so I don’t have to open a credit card to save on Disney gift cards!

Just add Disney gift cards to your cart on (or in a Target store) and use your REDcard as your payment method at checkout.

Target Disney Gift Card Discount Pros & Cons:

Pros: can get them in-store or online, 5% savings

Cons: must pay with a REDcard

3) Sam’s Club

If you happen to already be a Sam’s Club member, you can save about 4% on Disney gift cards when you buy these $50 Disney gift cards for $47.98.

These are only available to regular Sam’s Club members and membership will cost you $45. Sometimes Groupon will offer discounts on Sam’s Club memberships (this is how I got my membership to – you guessed it – buy discount Disney gift cards!)

I was able to save 10% on Disney gift cards at Sam’s thanks to a 5% cash back offer from DOSH. Click here to sign up for DOSH

Sam’s Club Disney Gift Card Discount Pros & Cons:

Pros: save 5%, options to save more with DOSH, can pay with any method

Cons: must have a $45 membership

What Can You Use Discount Disney Gift Cards For?

The EASIEST way to get discount Disney Gift Cards that can be used to save money on your Disney World vacation! Buy discounted Disney gift cards to save on dining, resorts, tickets, and more. #disneyworld #familytravel

There are so many ways to use discount Disney gift cards to save money on your vacation!

First, if you book your trip with a travel agent, you can pay for your entire trip with Disney gift cards! If you want help with every aspect of your vacation at no additional cost to you, I recommend getting a free quote for your trip from one of the expert Disney agents at Destinations in Florida.

If you rent DVC points to save thousands on a Disney Deluxe hotel stay, you can use discounted Disney gift cards to add a Disney Dining Plan to your reservation.

You can use gift cards to buy your park tickets directly from Disney, but you might be able to save more buying discounted theme park tickets from Undercover Tourist.

And, of course, you can use your Disney gift cards in the parks for your food and merchandise purchases.

Can I Combine Disney Gift Cards? 

Keeping track of a bunch of gift cards can be difficult, but thankfully there is a solution. Disney allows you to combine multiple cards into one card here!

I think his is one of the best features of Disney gift cards. You can move balances between cards and only have to keep track of one card on your trip.

The most you can move onto one Disney gift card is $500 so if you have more than that you’ll need multiple cards. 

Note that if you have more than five to combine, you will have to transfer the balance to the primary card, then delete cards from your collection of “My Cards” as you go.

Cheap Disney Gift Cards Summary

In summary, BJ’s offers the most reliable and hassle-free way to get Disney gift card deals.

Though you can definitely buy Disney gift cards at other locations, you will need a special card or pricey membership to get access to the best prices. I like that you only need a $10/year membership to buy gift cards from BJ’s and that you can use any payment method (even one that earns additional cash back).

    If you go to Kroger or Harris Teeter. they often have 4X FUEL POINTS. You have to activate this coupon on your Kroger/Harris Teeter account. (otherwise you only get double fuel points) So for $250 in gift cards gets you $1 off per gallon at the fuel pump. up to 35 gallons . we take 2 cars and save $35… that is 14% savings or 7% savings if there is no 4X coupon savings at the time of purchase.

    How is Bj’s saving more than the 5% at Target?

    • Leah

      Hi Tam! I prefer BJ’s over Target because I can use any credit card to buy the gift cards, including mine that earns 2% cash back on all purchases. So that brings my savings to 6% which is better than Target. Also if you don’t already have a Target RedCard you’d have to open a new card just to get the discount. But with BJ’s you can use any card you may already have. That’s why I prefer it to Target.

    What if you have Disney gift cards you would like to sell? We lost our connection to our timeshare and had to cancel our trip so we cant otherwise afford a trip plus airfare and hotel so I need to get rid of them without fear of being duped on the cards? I really appreciate your help.

    • Leah

      Great question, Stacie. I’d suggest trying both and to see where you could get the most out of your cards. I have bought from both sites and they are reputable and safe. I’m sure you will have no trouble liquidating your cards.

    Thank you! I used your information to get discounted gift cards from Sam’s Club and then used by Disney credit card to get an additional 1% back. However, I went back to Sam’s Club online today to purchase more gift cards and they have increased the price, so you are saving less now. This was less than a month since I purchased gift cards at the discounted amount you mentioned. Just thought I would put that out there for anyone now looking to get gift cards.

    Hi Leah! I have a couple of questions. I was wondering if you have ever stayed at Disney BoardWalk Villas? We are a family of 4 were looking at staying in a 1 bedroom villa standard view so we have space to move around. Any suggestions on requesting a view other than the parking lot? I was also wondering if you had ever stayed at a deluxe studio at the boardwalk as well and if so is there ample room for a family of 4?

    • Leah

      I happen to be staying at the Boardwalk for the first time tonight! I know the studio villas at the Boardwalk are 359 square feet, so a bit larger than a hotel room at a Value resort which is 260 square feet. The rooms have a queen bed and a full-size sleeper sofa. I guess it depends on how old your kids are and if they are ok sleeping on the pull-out. We regularly stay in a studio with our 6-year old daughter and feel like we have plenty of room.

      I would definitely request to be close to the lobby since some of the villa rooms are WAY down the path towards Hollywood Studios and quite far from the amenities. You could also request a pool or garden view. Hope that helps!

    I couldn’t figure out how to purchase from BJ’s without buying an online membership.
    But what I really wanted to know is if you can use PayPal on their site. I’m Canadian and have an American Dollar Paypal account, so need to be able to pay this way. Any ideas?

    July 21, 2018 at 4:36 pm Reply
    • Leah

      Hi Steph! You are right, it looks like BJ’s now requires that you at least have an online BJs membership for $10/year to shop on their site at all. I will update the post ASAP to reflect the change. So if you are willing to pay that (you would recoup it if you are buying any more than 2 gift cards) you would be able to get this discount. I checked and you CAN pay via PayPal so if you decide to get the $10 membership you can take advantage of the discount and pay via PayPal.

    Actually using the Target RedCard is a super simple way to get 5% off. Not complicated at all. And you can still use Target Gift Cards on Disney Gift Cards at many Targets. It helps to have other items that you are buying at the same time.

    It may not be the highest percentage off, but it’s a sure thing for me, and I can get them the same-day.

    • Leah

      You are right, Jessi! Using a RED card is an easy way to save 5% if you already have one. If you don’t have one and don’t want to go through the process of opening a new credit or debit card, then saving almost as much at BJ’s is the better option. I’ll update the post to reflect this. Thanks!

    Ok. So I read your article and went and purchased 20, $50 gift cards. I didn’t mind the smaller dollar ones because I thought, as you indicated above, that I could combine them on the Disney website. Wish you had mentioned that Disney’s site (de your link above) ONLY allows you to track 5 CARDS at a time.

    February 21, 2018 at 9:46 pm Reply
    • Leah

      Hi Kelly… I looked into this for you. One card should be set as your primary card in the Disney Gift Card website. This will be the card that will carry all of your balance.

      After you add each new card to “My Cards”, transfer the balance to the primary card. After the balance has transferred and shows up on the primary card, click the DELETE button to remove the empty card from your cards. Then you will be able to add unlimited cards to your primary card without any trouble.

      I will update the post with these instructions and please let me know if they don’t work for you. Thank you for reading!

    I bought (22) $50 3-packs in June 2017 from BJ’s. In other words, $3,300 worth. It paid for our trip in September. Plus, I used my Discover card which offered a promo of an extra 5% cashback for purchases from a wholesale club. Discover runs that promo every now and then. I had no problem and apparently my order was not flagged even though it was large.

    I actually just purchased 30 $100 cards from BJs – came within a week with no problems. It did seem to take a bit longer than expected to process the order, so maybe it was flagged somewhere along the way, but it processed and had a shipping notification within two days. I would still order a few at a time if possible but we had an upcoming trip over Thanksgiving and just found out about this deal, so we had to do a bulk order that I was VERY nervous about, haha. Worked out great, though!

    Last month, I purchased 47 of the 100 gift cards from BJ’s (all at once). The only problem I had was reading the numbers to my travel agent so she could call Disney and read them all over again to apply to my cruise. They came quickly and securely (Fedex or UPS I cannot remember which). It took something like 5 business days.
    I did this all online. I did call to ensure they got my order. The person I talked to was extremely nice and happy with my order.

      Hi Rachael! I’ve read that if you try to order more than 2-3 gift cards at a time your order might be declined or flagged. I guess they want to discourage folks from buying in bulk and reselling? It doesn’t take too long for delivery – maybe 4 or 5 days? Hope that helps!
