I know, I did it to my area when everything seemed to be going well, so I thought, and I got more than anyone else (didn't realize until later) and that brought attention which then caused problems for everyone. I learned a great lesson. Glad it's not like that everywhere yet.
With a valid business and EIN it is a different animal and orders are automated and ready for pickup at the end of each month. I am sure if you walked in and bought 40 cards they may say something but everything is YMMV.

I love the comment about the highest rated new network - pretty much gave it away and do they discuss news? I always thought it was a bunch of old white men complaining that everything is Obama's fault.

How does Blackhawk not play well with MS? Because their website doesn't accept AGC?

Seems to me that the fear over Blackhawk is from people getting shutdown for buying too many online. unless you filling out a form everytime you buy one of these at the mall I don't see how Blackhawk would know if you bought too many at the mall.

Until I see credible evidence that Blackhawk cards will no longer work, I won't get all worked up about it. And even then like VR vanilla and everything else we'll just adapt

Thats what I was thinking. But if you want to take advantage of the 1k load limit you have to give them your corp account info. I might still test the waters with my Corp account, and if I get shut down just go back to buying the personal limit.

Looks like if you try to order a visa it takes you to giftcardmall.

Not true. You can buy Visa, although the [redacted] who programmed website block you from buying a $500 GC because they factor in the $2.95 fee. Thus, you can only order 1 $497 GC.

That's because Blackhawk owns GCM.

You aren't buying the Visa from Simon anymore, you are buying them directly from Giftcardmall(Blackhawk). Look at your browsers address bar after you click to order a visa card.

Does one need a biz account to do this? Don't see any link for buying a visa in the personal GC page.

Noticed that too. Hopefully they fix it.

Then pick a design, and click Add to Cart, then it will ask if you want Visa or Amex, if you pick visa it then directs you to GiftcardMall(Blackhawk). If you Select Amex it keeps you on the Simon Mall Site.

Order Summary
Visaź Si... x1 $497.00
Purchase... x1 $2.95
Sub Total $499.95
Shipping Cost $1.99
Total $501.94

cost $4.94 now to get a $497 card. Rounds to a 1% cost. Not as good as it was a couple days ago. Can only buy 1 card at a time. Shipping kills it.
