I just received that email, too. It's legit, but I'm going to wait until Target comes out with their Easter specials. I think I remember them doing a BOGO 1/2 off on gift cards either last year or the year before as an Easter Basket goodies promo and Disney cards were included, but there is a limit so you have to play the outsmart the system game.

I have no doubt that for those of us who have purchased large quantities of gift cards from BJs in the recent months we will be offered at least 8% discounts again over the next 8 months at some point.

I think we - as a purchasing group - would have a collective mass with enough clout to negotiate to purchase our large quantities at a better bulk rate. Maybe they'd gave us a more significant discount as a unit.

We should put a collective list / amount together at some point to determine just how much we all might purchase as a whole and shop it around to the bigs like Amazon, Costco, Sams and BJs...just a thought. I bet we'd get some traction.

Email I received (yes it is legit; removed the contact details); you may receive the same if you bought a bunch like me last year:

We are running a promotion on the Disney gift cards through the end of March. Since you have purchased Disney cards in larger quantities from BJs.com in the past, we wanted to reach out directly to see if you are interested in placing any orders for cards at this time.

The prices below are for $5,000 orders and above.

Please let us know how many cards you are interested in and we will place the orders on your behalf through BJs.com. We have inventory available so we can ship with our standard 3-5 day lead times for card activation. To qualify for these discounts you must contact either Brian Lockhart or I directly so that we can assist with placing the orders.

Contact Info:

bxxx@bjs.com

Discount Pricing will not be reflected on BJs.com, and is not is not valid for any prior purchases.

I have corresponded with them to see if a higher purchase would push them lower. So far no bites.

I just received the same offer as I ordered about $2500 last time in 3 orders.

I donít think I want $5000 in one order, let alone all 50ís to take advantage of very good 7-1/2%. Also it got tedious to not only scratch off but doublecheck if each was activated. Had a problem with some last time... though resolved in a timely manner.

I did appreciate receiving this offer though.as Iím sure itís legit.

Seriously, we should aggregate our potential request $ amounts and go to all of the big boxes with that sum potential. A $5K here is there isn't going to trip their trigger.

Is there a phone number on that email you could share? I didn't receive one. Last year I bought gift cards in the 5 digits. 2% more is significant.
