Saving for Disney and free gift cards

So for the past few months I have been saving for my next WDW trip (75 days left!) and trying all of the tricks to earn free gift cards for the trip. WDW is not cheap, but I have been doing a good job at saving!

1) saving all cans/ bottles. I don't really drink soda and I don't drink alcohol, but my softball team has let me take all of their beer cans and bottles after games. In one month of doing this I have already got $26! That's a $25 gift card to disney! I have a couple more months to save cans.

2) shopkick app . This method has been kind of slow, but it has still yielded free gift cards. You might be able to utilize it better than me and rack up many more.
I have got $75 dollars so far in giftcards. I decide to use my points / "kicks" on target giftcards, which then I buy disney gift cards. This seems to be a very popular thing to do from my internet searches and my local target telling me how a lady does it very often. 

This is my referral code if you want to check it out and help me get points!

It's available for apple & android. You go into stores and you will get "kicks" and you can scan items and make a purchase to gain more. Kicks are points and you trade them in for giftcards.

3) swagbucks 
This by far has been my most successful route yet! 
This is also easier because you can do this via the computer, but they also have apps.

This is my referral code for swagbucks. Help me get points and you earn points! You watch videos, play games, take surveys, polls, you can also make purchases through them for places you usually shop at. 
Like shopkick I redeem my points for target gift cards and then purchase disney giftcards with the target cards I got from my rewards. 

4) saving ALL of my change.
I have multiple piggy banks and jars where I save all my change and random dollars. I have over $100 in change so far and I still have a couple months left to save.

5) asking for gift cards as gifts. 
If you have a birthday coming up or any reason someone would give you a gift. Ask for disney gift cards! It might save you from something you don't want and it will help with your trip. 

This isn't revolutionary, lots of people are doing the same thing, but I figured I would share my positive experiences with it!

Make WDW or DL trips more affordable and fun with these ways to get gift cards!
