[Expired] Hy-Vee: Get $10 Instant Discount with $100+ Visa Gift Purchase

Deal has expired, view more Hy-vee deals by clicking here.

The Offer

Direct Link to offer (page 23)

  • Buy $100 or more in Visa gift cards and get a $10 instant discount.

The Fine Print

  • Valid 11/28-12/4
  • Limit 1 per customer

Our Verdict

The $10 discount more-than-covers the activation fee, so this is an easy way or racking up grocery store spend. Hy-Vee stores carry $500 Visa gift cards (they do have limits on how much you can buy in a single transactions, e.g. $500, $999, etc, depending on the store).

Should be possible to buy $500 or $100 Visa gift cards, one per transaction, and get the $10 instant discount on each purchase – if the cashier allows. Reader Jeff says you also get fuel points on the purchase.

Hat tip to reader Amanda. They ran a somehwat similar deal in 2016.

Does anyone know how often HyVee has this deal? Thanks.

Every year around this time. The post mentions a similar deal in 2016, but there was another one in 2017 (www.doctorofcredit.com/hy-vee-10-off-100-visa-gift-card-midwest-1128-124/)

The deal should be $10 instant discount. So, it would be $495.95, if you purchase $500 VGC.

Dont forget to use your HV fuelcard for an additional 4% return in fuel! AND 6% in Amex MR points per $1000 (2-$500 vgc)

Oops…the fine print does say no fuel points on Visa GC! 🙁 Sorry

Can confirm Limit 1 per transaction. Also, good luck finding a Hy-Vee that allows credit cards for VGCs. No 2016 party this time.

Use your phone for payment & confound them. They can’t do anything after the transaction succeeds.

The HyVee’s in my area don’t even carry $500 cards unfortunately, but still an ok deal.

Yup, but did they allow you to do multiple transactions?

I am in maple grove, MN. All nearby HyVee stores accept only cash or debit card for all gift cards. So unfortunately i no benefit in using this offer for me

Does the everywhere gift card (grocery/dining/fuel/ect) work? $5 profit per purchase sounds good enough for me.

DP: Large Hy-Vee stores have gift cards at a ‘Money Center’ (smaller ones have a huge gift card rack). Wasn’t even asked if the card being used for payment is a debit card or a credit card. Surprisingly, all Hy-Vees in my town still have lots of Visa gift cards. Looks like local seasoned churners don’t have much MS to do after leveraging the Staples & the OD deals (Both had huge GC sales in my area).

Sorry for the typo in the parent post – I meant ‘Money Services’, and not ‘Money Center’.

BTW, I only bought 4. 🙁
