I wanted to buy a Disney Gift Card on the shop Disney site, but am only seeing three options for designs on the cards. There used to be tons of choices.
Am I looking in the wrong place or did they get rid of all the designs but 3?
Thanks.
It looks like they got rid of all the cool choices. :( That sucks. :mad:
Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Wowwwwwwww that is terrible news! They had sooooooooooooooo many choices in the past! I know they've been updating the shopDisney site lately. The DVC discount has disappeared from the website too. Wishful thinking - maybe they're still updating and the rest of the cards will come back?? Please? :sad1:

The Cash App has a 5%Boost (cash back) for Staples B&M or .com.

Cash App is totally legit, it’s run by Square who provides iPad registers for stores and card readers for phones and is available for iPhone or Android.

Cash app is more or less comparable to PayPal, Venmo, and Apple Cash. You can fund it through bank account, credit cards or even bitcoins. They will issue a free and cool Visa debit card with your signature on the front. You will need the card to use on the boosts.

I highly recommend it in general, I’ve used it to get 5-10% boost discounts at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, fast food, coffee shops ($1 per visit), etc.

The Staples deal will not last forever, these boosts change every month or two and you can only have 1 boost at a time. You select the boost in the app.

Keep in mind that boosts sometimes disappear after you switch to another one.

Since the boost comes right back into your account by using your card, it can stack with coupons, Dosh, Ebates/Rakuten, etc

Use code “PodSave” when signing up and you will get $5 & so will DonorChoose (donate to a local school class project/need)

    WHAT?!!! So. Sad.
    Shoot! I was really hoping someone would tell me I wasn’t looking in the right place.
    I’m going to hold out a bit longer before I buy. Fingers crossed they come back.

    So... I'm on the target site trying to buy a gift card through paypal but its saying "PayPal not available" has this happened to anyone else recently? I just ordered one less than a month ago with paypal no problem.

    Edit: I called and after waiting/trying to get help for 20+ minutes, being hung up on and recalling I was told that they are getting reports about the issue, have been in contact with their tech team and are trying to fix it and to try again in the morning. :badpc:

    My best buy 10% on weekly ad offer went pending on RMN. I just got a gc. Fingers crossed it works
    Mine still isn't pending, but a Staples purchase I made the same day went pending several days ago. :/
    Did you both buy Disney Gift cards or regular merchandise with these offers? I was looking at both offers. Plus my BOA card has an additional 5% back for staples AND I also get 3% back for online purchase with that card - which would be awesome!

    I'm still new to this.

    I was also wondering - I see the 6% offer for Lowes gift cards. My Lowes sells Disney Gift cards so I was wondering if I could order the Lowe's gift card could I then use it to buy the DGC at the store. Plus I would get the additional 3% with BOA for online.

    I only got gift cards. I don’t think Lowe’s will let you buy a gift card with a gift card

    I'm pretty sure Lowes registers are hard-coded not to allow purchasing GCs with GCs. It definitely does not work at my local store.

    I used their "Contact Us" link basically asking where all of the choices went. I'll post their reply, if I get one.
    I contacted them and this is the response I just received:

    Thank you for contacting us with your inquiry. At this time there is a limited selection of Disney Gift Card designs available to purchase online. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.


    I still don't understand why.

    Thank you for contacting them and following up with us. I'm hoping it's just temporary. It's such a drastic change!

    Imho cost-cutting has hit even the Disney Store division. Only having 3 gift cards in stock and which the employees pick off the shelf to process is a lot faster and cheaper than having 100.

    Mine did ultimately go pending. I just tried with a $25 DGC. I just went and bought another $225. Fingers crossed!!

    I usually take all the scratch off ones with the extra gray stuff or tacky glue and transfer them to a nice fresh ShopDisney themed GC. I have a few I can still use, but I will miss the options if they don't return.

    I am trying to be optimistic and I hope it is just because Disney is updating/changing them or something. The parks seem to be using barcode scan gift cards now (Epcot festivals, SWGE card, etc). Maybe that is why? (probably just wishful thinking)

    I really only use them to pay off the trip and then have the left over on one card.
