Discount Sites

Disney Gift Cards are available at many grocery stores and retailers in denominations ranging from $15 to $500. You can also purchase them online through DisneyGiftCard.com or the Shop Disney app.

Although there are many places to purchase Disney gift cards, there are places and ways to purchase them that will give you a discount on the face value of the card. These discounts can range from 5-10% off face value, so it’s worth keeping an eye out if you’re looking to get a great deal.

Combining Credit Card Rewards With Discounted Disney Gift Card

One popular method for getting the maximum discount possible would be to combine credit card rewards with the retailer discounts listed above. Some credit cards can offer a cash back reward of 1-5%, but you want to double check to make sure your Gift Card purchase qualifies for the highest possible reward.

While Target offers the highest initial discount, keep in mind that you are required to use a Red Card, which will prevent you from using other credit card rewards on top of the initial discount.

Combining Discounted Disney Gift Cards With Other Discounts

New Disney World Annual Passes

On top of the possible 8-9% savings that is possible when combining credit card rewards with discounted Disney Gift Cards, when you go to pay for things at certain locations, you could still be entitled to other discounts such as annual passholder discounts, Disney Vacation Club member discounts, Florida resident discounts, among other possible discounts.

This could mean getting up to 20% taken right off the top of your bill, then paying with a discounted gift card, which just further increases your ability to save on your next Disney trip!
