Default Target gift cards for annual maintenance fees

Hey all-

Received my annual Target Redcard notification/update and there was a 5% discount promo code that stacked on the 5% red card discount. Picked up annual dues Disney gift cards at 10% discount. It's easy to overlook. I saved a couple of hundred dollars.

Is this code invitation specific?

Default Target & BJ's Update

I checked my Red Card Account found this:

Get 10% off on your Anniversary When you are signed up for Target marketing emails.

I am beginning the dues process and find Target 5% off to be the easiest path - ($500 cards vs $100 cards at BJ's) Last October BJ's had 8% off, nothing so far this year. BJ's is offering 6.5% off with purchase of >$5,000, but the representative, Brian Lockhart, does not respond to voicemails or e-mails and if he does is to explain how busy he is - I told him trying to do business with him is not worth the extra 1.5% savings (I have been trying since April)

I have been trying for a while to get a hold of Brian also. I can get Pedro but he says Brian has to do the transaction.

And neither Discover or Chase Freedom are offering 5% cash back on warehouse purchases this quarter. Maybe next quarter?

It was included in a mailing that I typically ignore, the mandatory Target debit card stats, etc. I just happened to glance at the enclosures, and was pleasantly surprised to find that separate coupon. I think it needs to be redeemed by 10/23/19, maybe?

This is great news. i got one of these too, was curious if it would work or not. Have a trip and a cruise coming up. I think they'll end up locking me out of my card for a week while the check clears, but this is a great savings.

The fine print says excludes gift cards so it might not work.

For Target, that means Target Gift Cards. Disney Gift Cards (and other non-Target Gift Cards) are classified as merchandise by Target.
