I ordered on 7/18 @ about 730 am. I received my gift card today, 7/27 around 4pm. I, like many posters on here, immediately logged into disneygiftcard and transferred the balance to a card that I physically have. I don't plan on using the balance until we go down in November so I wanted to get it onto a card only I have. I paid using Zelle through Bank of America. I was really nervous about the whole thing but I'm super excited it all worked out. Good luck to everyone else that uses it!

I ordered and paid last week, and got my card about five minutes ago. Like others, I transferred it to a Disney card I own/control that I bought through Disney directly and had no problems doing so.

I was extra nervous since the only option from Canada is a wire transfer, so I had absolutely zero recourse if it didn't work. But the 20% discount really helps out with costs for us, given the value of the Canadian dollar right now. It means we're only paying a 13% premium instead of a 33% premium!

    I've been waiting for several days for more cards to appear so I can purchase them. Nothing yet

    Interesting. I didn't know this was "a thing". A couple new thoughts:

    - I have several unwanted gift cards that've been knocking around in my wallet for some time. This might be a good place to unload those for a few dollars.
    - I looked at Raise.com . WHY? Why would anyone buy a $300 gift card for only a few pennies discount? The risk is real ... the reward should be real too. Furthermore, why would anyone buy a $100 gift card for $100? I mean, these cards are available everywhere in brick and mortar stores.
    - I agree with those of you who are nervous about exposing your bank account to this type of transaction. Remember you can always buy a VISA gift card for yourself (reloadable, so you'll only ever need one) and use it for such purchases. At the worst, they could only "take you" for the cost of the VISA.
    - Transferring the balance to a physical card already in your possession is brilliant, and with Disney cards it's so easy.
    - While advice from people on this site is solid-gold, remember you can always check out any website just by googling "review ____". Here's some info on this site: https://www.huffpost.com/entry/5-ugly-truths-about-disco_b_10268626?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAL5a7zYZGGI5lCTpXi085yMMAq1AlslJq7n-YCCOLPxHq13A95v8ss0R2WtAnBTybILGxvFekqVEvVqHZSt-h3z2QyN4VIqm4PtEAFkGTAPjB0LizHP7QflrpwcJp8toAViUIJv6gOIKC8z21wmU-4YCA7C_hX8tw5AcJHTOE7uf

    People buy the gift cards through a rewards site portal or/and with credit cards that have cash back. For example, Swagbucks has 1 point per dollar (so 1%), then Discover has Paypal as their 5% cashback this quarter. Add you Discover card to your PP account, set it up as your primary source, go to the Raise app and pay using PP (can only pay with PP through the app). There you have 6% plus the 1 or 2% discount on the Raise site. Not a lot, but sme cards are very hard to find with a good discount.

    Okay, I can see that. If timed correctly, 6% sounds worthwhile, but the 1-2% alone doesn't sound worth the effort, especially because any transaction has the potential for trouble.

    I ordered this week on Wednesday. I would email them and ask when they expect to post more. When I asked, they told me either Tuesday or Wednesday. I checked every couple of hours, and saw them come up.

    Hello! I am considering doing this gift card deal. Has everyone here had a successful transaction thus far? I would be using Apple Pay. TIA

    Stalk them every few hours until you see them available. You can also email them or ask on Facebook. Sometimes they will tell you when they plan to post the next batch. Good luck!
