Want to learn how we saved money paying off our Walt Disney World Vacation? Here are some tips for buying gift cards to save some extra money on your trip.
One of the best feelings is getting your Walt Disney World vacation paid off in full, but an even better feeling is all the cheap gas you can get in the process. We are lucky enough to live in an area that has a Kroger to take advantage of their Gift Card 4 times the Fuel points promotions they run.
For each $500 Disney Gift Card we purchase, we get 2,000 Fuel Points. 2,000 Fuel Points = $2.00 per Gallon for up to 35 gallons of gas!
We filled up both cars for $1.27 recently, 26 gallons worth of gas! This amount of gas would have cost us $53.30. Filling up 5 times with the discounts = $266.50! As you can see, the savings really adds up!
So I know what you are thinking… I don’t have that kind of money to buy the gift cards when they run the 4x’s the fuel point promotion. We used to think this too, and never took advantage of the promotion. However, if you put your money into savings the way you would usually make payments towards your vacations, you can do it!
If you have never booked a Walt Disney World Vacation, you may not realize what all can be rolled into your booking, especially when saying on resort! Your booking can include your Room, Tickets, Meal Plan, and Memory Maker! When you book your reservation, you pay a $200 deposit. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your vacation, which gives you plenty of time to take advantage of Kroger Fuel Points!
The Disney Gift Cards work at Walt Disney World, Walt Disney Land, Disney Cruise Line, Disney Store, and Disney Store Online. Plus the Disney Gift Cards can be Activated for any amount from $15 to $500! Kroger also has other vacation gift cards, like Carnival, that you can apply this to as well. They have 100’s of options to help you save on items you already planning on purchasing, so why not take advantage of the fuel points!!
