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.

Yes, I plan on ordering every other day. I can't figure out the pattern, but I hope this helps.

Submitted two orders, and one went through and processed no problem 15 minutes after the order was submitted. Other is stuck in limbo. Same with Player 2. One went through no problem, but second is stuck in limbo. It's only been a couple hours, but never had this issue before.

Its 5K per account number per 2 days. So basically you can do 1 every day or 2 every other day.

Thanks, I think getting 2 orders at once works for us. I will stick to one CC at a time.

We have been at this a while. Once you develop a plan, you will have to change it, because this hobby always changes!

I have 10 locations between where I work and where I live that I can liquidate pretty quickly. Most I have done in a day was 8 stops @ 499 a pop (can't seem to get multi-swipe to fly in my neck of the woods).

TCB has crash and burned. They have went to my 100% trusted to site to total AVOID. I now use BeFrugal and Yazing as TCB can no longer be trusted.

What problems did you encounter? I've got 4/6 orders failing to track so far, hardly worth the trouble to keep filing claims.
