This is the thread for 2018. The previous discussion can be found here.

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/ every 48 hours (2 orders under 2.5k including the fees). However, system will reportedly "error out" if more than two orders are attempted within two days.

Cards must be activated before use. Orders usually arrive in 5-7 days.

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

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

Yazing did not track (4/19) so I contacted customer support. They have also confirmed that GIftCards.com "will no longer be paying commissions on Visa Giftcards after the end of this month."

GC.COM portal cash back is not a big loss , if u have a nearby simon mall. Atleast u dont have to wait for a month to get the money back.
Unless your liquidation requires your name to be on the cards. Can't get the from Simon either.

TCB, Yazing, and SBC has the no more cashback for VGCs language, but the other portals do not. Is this a GCcom thing where they are no longer paying any commissions to any portals or just to these specific portals?

MCGCs are still open for business right? I know the swipe, cancel thing is painful but I will prefer that over no CB with VGC.

My GCcom inquiries for SBC for missed tracking were rejected. I might have to try to elevate.

Travelling out of the country.

Can't get GC.com to load at all. I get a 403 error.

Tried a VPN (with several endpoints) and a SOCKs proxy. No dice with either.

Changed my DNS to several servers - no change.

Anyone know how to break through and give these good people my money in exchange for some of those sweet, sweet gift cards?

TCB looks like it will continue to payout with GCM. I used to not be able to get any order through GCM, and hadn't tried since '16, but it looks like I am getting an order to be completely processed and not cancelled. So maybe give GCM a shot with a small order and see how it goes, if it works, increase order size to season the account, and stick with that.

Is Swagbucks tracking 1% for visa ? They usually have discounts on walmart gift cards while redeeming. So its like 1.1 % if it still works?

TCB changed GCM Visa to 1% today without notice. Disappointing......

I ordered yesterday when it said visa is at 1.5% and it came back as zero. Today only Mastercards are listed for 1.5% on Yazing, so I will start ordering those in the future.

No more CB for VGC from Yazing - seems like it has stopped earlier (4/26) than stated on the website (4/30)


Letter from Yazing

As you may know Giftcards.com and GiftCardMall let us know that they were going to reduce commission rates to 0% on Visa Giftcards at the end of the month. We are still looking into exactly what happened, but it appears that our rate for Visa Giftcards was actually changed to 0% sometime during the day yesterday, and many of the orders yesterday came through at 0% commissions. We have sent a message to our contacts there to see if this can be rectified, but at this point I think we need to assume that we are at 0% for Visa’s going forward.Sorry for the bad news.

Could you let us know if it tracks at 1.5% for MCGC?

Yup, I believe the Masters are issued by Meta and work at WM. Is the pin the last 4 digits? I have not ordered the Masters before. Adam at Yazing said it should track at 1.5%. I would think others are already ordering them.

With masters you need to change payment type to debit before they enter the amount and hit enter in the register.
Swipe and hit "Cancel" or "Change Payment" button to select "Debit" on the screen and have them enter amount and then enter the pin.
