Two times each year, shopDisney moves a ton of merchandise into their sale section, and call it the Twice Upon a Year Sale. It’s a great time to get bonus codes, free shipping, and cheap Disney stuff, so watch your inbox for emails from shopDisney throughout the next few weeks.
Stack Your Savings
Before you head to the shopDisney page, use a click through portal to earn an extra few percentage points back. A quick check with CashBack Monitor tells me that TopCashBack probably has the best payout around right now at 5%. Click here to sign up with TopCashBack if you are not already a member.
Whenever you shop at any Disney Store (in person or online), you can get 10% off using your Chase Disney Visa with code DRVCMEMBER. However, if the sale has a discount code, you won’t be able to use both, so you’ll have to assess which is better. If you happen to buy less than $75 worth of merchandise, use the Chase Disney Visa code, but then you’ll have to pay for shipping, which is free for orders of $75+ with the code SHIPMAGIC. It’s definitely a catch-22! I will usually try different scenarios to see which is the best for my situation.
Use Disney Gift Cards
Here’s where the best savings can come into play. If you are using a sale code, and not your Chase Disney Visa, break out those Disney gift cards you’ve been getting at a discount and really stack your savings up! If you don’t have enough funds on one card, go to the Disney Gift Card site here to combine them into one card, up to $1000 each.
Stocking Up on Disney Items
Instead of waiting until you get to the Parks to buy shirts and souvenirs, you can take advantage of these sales before your trip to stock up your supply. I love getting matching family shirts, or fun PJs, or even toys occasionally that we can use both while waiting for our next trip, and then when it finally rolls around!
