  • Great show.
    Best way to pay dues if you can pay it upfront is to buy Disney gift cards at Sam’s Club. You get 5% off on the cards. I got a new credit card that paid 5% in rewards for the first 90 days. Disney has a website to combine gift cards.
    Saved me 10%.

  • I second paying by Disney Gift card. Bought gift cards at the grocery store; used a credit card with 6% back. Then used that store’s fuel rewards program to get the equivalent of another 12% back in free fuel. I’ll take 18% off the price of my dues every day of the week!

  • I find its easier to pay it off monthly, They take it out of my checking acct and it’s done.

  • I have found a “Best of Both Worlds” method. I pay myself monthly into a high-yield money market account. Then, when the maintenance fees are due, I go to Target and buy discounted gift cards to pay the dues and use the funds in the money market account to pay the bill. If I run into any better deals on gift cards throughout the year, I can take advantage of those as well, as long as the funds are available in the account. This way, I am still “paying” my dues monthly. but I am also taking advantage of the discounts that are available on gift cards and earning interest on the money in the savings account.
