Chase has some of the best rewards cards for Disney vacations. They also have a program called Chase Offers that gives you cash back when you make purchases at select stores. These rebates are often 10% of the purchase price and a great way to save on Disney gift cards.
Stores featured in the Chase Offers program in the last 6 months have included Lowe’s, Walgreens, Office Depot/Office Max, Staples, RiteAid and more. Each of these sells Disney gift cards.
How Chase Offers Works
Chase Offers is similar to Amex Offers. You add an offer to a specific credit card. Then, you use that card to make a purchase. Your cash back rebate will automatically post to your account.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Open the Chase app (app only; it’s not available online).
- Select one of your rewards cards.
- Scroll to the bottom where you’ll find Chase Offers.
- Add offers to your card you want to use.
- Check parameters like the maximum rebate and expiration date.
- Make sure you use that card for your purchase.
Most Chase cards have Chase Offers but not all. They were just recently added to the Disney Visa but still not available on business cards.
As long as you make the purchase by the expiration date, you’ll get the rebate according to Chase, even though the charge may be pending for a day or two. Our first time, it took one week to get the rebate notification emailed to us. Chase says it takes 7-14 days for statement credits to post but it seems to be on the longer end of that timeline.
Using Chase Offers to Purchase Disney Gift Cards
These rebates typically have a cap of around $5-$10 in total savings plus or minus. If the discount is 10% with a $10 max, that means you’re capped at a $100 Disney gift card. But, if you have multiple Chase cards with the same offer, you could make multiple purchases in one shopping trip, each with a different card.
Some of them exclude gift cards in the terms. But, based on our own tests and the reports we’ve seen, purchasing gift cards in-store is triggering the rebate even when the terms exclude them. So far, we haven’t had any problems.
