Theyve been talking about that for a while, but many malls have large stocks of unpacked cards. There's a huge inventory of Hanukkah cards that are now useless lol. I'll take them off their hands.

Simon locations will generally let you pay with two cards. Sometimes more swipes, depending upon the cashier. I just say I want to use two, and they ask the payment type before swiping. Some workers will ask to see the cards, so YMMV.

you can pay with up to 5 cards before the system starts kicking up problems. i know a few people who run 4x $2500 cards a day.

given the fact that paying with gc's is against simon policy, coupled with the lack of ability to scale it/limited 'gain'.... I am at a loss to understand why one would bother.

the iah simons have robust "do not sell" lists that you'd probably want to avo being added to.

To All:

as someone mentioned, the mindless lack of discretion on this thread (and board) is breathtaking. bragging abt violating simon policy going to multiple malls in the same day- some naive genius mentioned 5... super smart/impressive

news flash: simon knows abt flyertalk. duh. promoting activity that circumvents their rules on a public board (ie: bragging to anonymous strangers... SAD!) is basically akin to an MS suicide attempt/cry for help.

think before you post/brag kids...

At the Simon mall office, there was a sign advertising: Get a $15 gift card for buying $150 Amex Simon gift card.

They are for merchant gift cards, not a $15 simon gift card back as a bonus.

Mu Simon had this promo. The $15 Amex wasnt listed in the promo but I was given the $15 amex!

$12 money maker.

Makes up for 3 Simon GC fees!

My local Simon pulled this one as of yesterday. She said a new one is coming tomorrow instead. The 15 GC is good for Forever 21, Sephora and American Eagle.

What are the hard and fast rules of Simon gift cards? I'm thinking about getting into MS for the first time since I live 5m walking distance to a Simon Mall now.
