Officially yes the cardholder should pay. However family often shoves out their card as we are paying. The CMs so far have not denied them the kind gesture. Not a big deal to us if they did though.

I think this would be the easiest option.

Yes and Yes.

We wait until they have a sale and buy a few thousand dollars worth. We use the gift cards to pay for everything, including our yearly maintenance fees.

Just make sure you buy the gift cards with a fixed amount ($25, $50, $100 etc) and NOT the card that you decide the amount of the card ($25-$1,000).

BJís does discount the previous cards but not the latter!!!

Thanks everyone -- I will now check BJs for when the gift cards go on sale.

These days, with prices on everything at Disney going up, every penny saved is one more Mickey Bar in the Park for the kids

When they have a sale, someone will post a thread letting everyone know. The discounted gift cards usually range between 5%-8%. The nice thing is they can be used for DVC dues. Every discount adds up.
