You can get a nice Disney discount at your local Sam’s Club store, as well as a bonus $10 gift card for use at any Disney Store location or DisneyStore.com.
A $100 Disney gift card can be purchased for $98.87 at Sam’s Club. This gift card can be used at participating locations including Walt Disney World, Disneyland, the Disney Cruise Line, the Disney Store locations in the U.S., DisneyStore.com, DisneyPhotoPass.com and Adventures By Disney. With the $100 Disney gift card comes a bonus $10 shopping card that can be used at Disney Store locations in the U.S. as well as DisneyStore.com.
If you are a Disney Visa cardholder and are planning a Disney World, Disneyland, or Disney Cruise line vacation, you should consider buying a $100 Walmart gift card at your local Walmart using your Disney Visa credit card. This will give you a Disney Reward Dollar.
The $100 Walmart gift card can then be used to purchase the Disney gift card at Sam’s Club. The $10 bonus Disney Store shopping card can then be used to purchase some Disney merchandise to get you ready for your trip. There is no limit on how many you can buy, so the savings can really add up. Every penny counts when it comes to maximizing your vacation money!
