Check cash back portals to help cover the fees. Around the holidays there is usually free shipping. http://www.cashbackmonitor.com/cashb...giftcards.com/

Limit 5k/day (2 orders under 2.5k including the fees). Cards must be activated before use. Orders usually arrive in 5-7 days. Monthly limit is just 5k * days in the month.

Select the free letter on the left instead of paying for a card on the right of the screen.

Visa issued by metabank.

Warning: Orders can be lost or stolen. Call to have them reissued.

I wonder how it would work for MO at WM...has anyone encountered this? is this a new policy?
The pin is the last 4 digits.

it used to be the last 4 digits, but since they say now "this card does not require a pin" it makes me wonder...

IME, buying from gc.com required you to activate and then the system would give you the pin, not necessarily the last 4 digits.

taken literally - does not require a pin, but can be used.

I actually went to liquidate today, and used last 4 digits for the pin - it worked exactly like before. But for a moment, when I heard that "no pin required, press "credit" if prompted", for a moment I was worrying that it might be the end of it...

Received e-mail from them, that my "requested" refund (for 4 cards, I ordered 5) is approved. I didn't request anything. Never had such issue before. Is it normal?

It's shocking how often people here continue to confuse GC.com with GCM.com.

Has anyone used topcashback for giftcards.com and got Pending payment?
I have done many transactions in the past but got a Payable of 0.00 for the first time on a 7/5/17 purchase.

GiftCards.com
Estimated Payable Payable
Order ID 4891748
Top Up amount $0.00
This transaction has progressed to payable status at 0.00. This usually means that the merchant has marked this transaction as being ineligible for cashback.

I believe I am blocked from ordering from GC.com. I was able to order about every week or two for a long time, but now my orders always get canceled. Anyone else blocked? I believe others have mentioned being blocked. Did you have any luck after a month?

Anyone else having trouble activating cards? I get the following message:

No cards match the data that you have entered. Please verify your information and try again.
